[FS] Intellivision for Gameboy Color Development System + Cart

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I might post this to eBay, but if I get a reasonable offer here it would be much easier for me.

 

I'm looking to sell the Intellivision for GameBoy Color development system and cartridge.

 

Intellivision for Gameboy Color (I4GBC) is is an Intellivision emulator I developed between 2000-2001 for the GameBoy Color the plays about 60 different Intellivision games. Although the emulator has been made freely available, few people have had access to the development hardware necessary to burn cartridge that can actually play it on a real system.

 

This is what I'm offering for sale:

 

GameBoy Color (transparent, purple-tinted version)

Cartridge burning adapter with cable

64 MB reprogrammable cartridge (contains 60 games)

Carrying case and wormlight

Notebook full of development notes and sketches

 

This is all the hardware I used to develop the emulator. I'm willing to sign, date, or write whatever you like to authenticate that this is the one and only system used to develop the emulator. There are some samples of the notebook's content below.

 

Note that this cartridge will also work on the GameBoy Advance, Micro, Super GameBoy, and the adapter for GameCube that plays GameBoy cartridges.

 

This is a one-of-a-kind item. I have already turned down an offer for $200… Please keep that in mind before making an offer.

 

If interested, please send me a private message!

 

Carl

So, the cart with 60 games on it are intellivision games?

 

Game list and a pic of one of the games in action?

 

You can do an auction here on AA. Others have, you just do it here or the marketplace and set a time for bidding to be over. People post or pm their highest price and you are done.

Using the development system and the emulator, you can program the cartridge to play the following games:

You can probably play others, but I haven't prepared "NFO" for games that either didn't perform well or are two player only.

 

I don't know how to run an auction on Atariage.

Just make a thread and set a deadline in that thread for. Week or a few days. Then interested bidders just pm you or openly post their bid in the thread. You can set a minimum or really what you want. It's really easy.

 

Screen shot of gameplay?

Okay, the deadline is Sunday night. Only bids placed before 12 AM Monday morning will be accepted.

Please send bids by private message on Atariage. You may send your bid along with the highest bid you're willing to make… The highest bid is only used if someone attempts to outbid you.

I will post who has the highest bid on this thread, but not the amount, which will be kept private. The opening bid must be $200 or more.

Playing the Devils Advocate here, it seems like one is paying for a average GameBoy flash cart loaded with your emulator and 60 pirated games.

 

Can one convert their own homebrew to run on your emulator? What benefits does emulating INTV games on a Gameboy have over running them directly on a INTV?

 

Not nit picking here. Just thought if these points were clarified it might seem a more appealing buy.

I have a gameboy cart with the emulator and some Intellivision games emulated on it........it runs Astrosmash!, BuzzBombers, Beauty and the Beast and many more flawlessly...full speed and full sound.....I assume if the homebrew isn't too complicated, you would be able to convert it to run on the emulator.

 

I don't think that you are bidding on a gameboy flash cart....obvioulsy, it is needed to play it on the gameboy, but I think you are buying an emulator essentially.....and you supply the roms....there is no pirating involved.

 

The obvious benefit to having them run on the gameboy is portablility. I can play Beauty and the Beast wherever I want.

Hardly. I'm the author, and this is the hardware I used to develop it on. It includes a notebook I took while developing the emulator.

You can use tools I developed to convert your BINs to run on the emulator. It does not actually include any Intellivision binaries.

It could potentially run homebrew titles, but I'm not providing NFOs for anything other than what's listed above. These are information files that tell the emulator how to deal with the binaries, not the binaries themselves. You need both before you can run the games.

Advantages? Well, the GameBoy is portable for one. It's also quite a technological marvel, since the GameBoy is a pathetic Z80 system not at all conducive to emulating anything.

Again, this isn't A development system that lets you run emulated games, it's THE DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM I USED TO CREATE INTELLIVISION FOR GAMEBOY COLOR.. And, yes, you can also run the Intellivision games indicated above, IF you have the original binaries.

Even if it were just an "average" flash cartridge, it would be well worth the money. I have not been able to find another like it in 10 years. Doing a search on eBay brings up zero results.

In other words, the bid is on the historical value of the technology, right?

Just the flash cart goes for $46 dollars on eBay:

eBay Auction -- Item Number: 2307849457971?ff3=2&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&item=230784945797&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]

 

Wheras a new cart with a modern USB port goes for $39

http://www.tototek.c...products_id=142

 

It must be kinda rare then. Also, the emulator seems to be out of distribution. So, how much is an emulator without a download link worth these days? Does it become collectible? Do we get rights to the source? Can we put it back into general distribution or modify it using your notes?

As DZ-Jay said, the bid is for the historical value of the technology and its role in the history of Intellivision emulation.

The hardware on its own clearly has some value, but my point is that this is the development system I used to write the world's first portable Intellivision emulator in 2000-2001. There was no way to play Intellivision on the gobefore that time...

The notebook is included, again, for its historical value and helps to authenticate the set as a whole. If you're not really getting this, then it doesn't make much sense to bid.

The emulator's source code was released in 2003 under GPL. You're free to modify it, with or without the set, for your own purposes.

Are there any binaries available?

I received such a barrage of private bids, it was beyond my ability to manage. Truly there are some fine members of Atariage who can appreciate the unique position of I4GBC in Intellivision history.

To simplify things for me, I will be posting it to eBay with a starting bid of $500. May the best man win. :-)

And no, there are no binaries available at the present. (It was available through my resume page not long ago, but the entire page has been taken down.)

Curious, if you received so many bids through the AA guys, you didnt have a top bid? Or is ebay just easier?

 

When you post to Ebay, post the link in here, but im sure I will see it as I check Ebay about everyday.

So, if people sent you bids via PM with the expectation of actually winning the item, now you're going to make them do it again?

Hey there, Carl. It's nice to meet you on this site. I see that Ms. Pac-Man for Intellivision was good, and I also saw one of the guys test out the cartridge for GBC and NES. Your website is different now, and I was wondering if you still have the files for these, because I need to test them out too and to enjoy, even for Ms. Pac-Man. Thanks if responded.
