Dead Intellivision? Revive it with a Pi!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

Here's a project that I did with my dead Intellivision to bring it back to life. It's basically the same as the Ultimate Intellivision Flashback project, except that the UPCI is equipped with db9 extension cables. Original controllers or Flashback controllers are supported via the DIP switches on the UPCI. I also added an LED power indicator and 2 amp power supply. The existing power supply remains in to give it some weight.

My next project will be putting a Pi / UPCI in my dead Intellivision II.

 

Interested in doing something like this but don't want to take the time or effort? PM me and I can do it for you.

Found a cheap dead Sears Super Video Arcade on eBay and refurbished it and modded it with a Pi. This was my very first video game system, so it's pretty cool having it under my TV again after 30+ years. Even got the kids to play some Shark! Shark!, Snafu, and Frog Bog with me!

The controller wiring is a little ugly, but I already had an UPCI ready to go from another project so I threw it in there with some adapters.

My next project to get done. Won't need a system changer or ECS either.

^same here, I still want to get one of these soon.

Tough to balance out though, with all the new Inty and CV homebrews coming out lately..
