  1. Thank you, @Justin, for your kind words and for bringing back the High Score Challenge. The Suzuka track is very challenging and was often frustrating lol. I was fortunate to win the 2021 Grand Prix.

  4. Congratulations Racers! Congratulations to everyone who joined in the big race!! Suzuka was the hardest track to race, difficult enough to provide tremendous challenge to us adult players but still hopefully fun to play! @Marco1019 takes the grand prix championship this year with a high score of 51,250 points! Congratulations Marco! @MaliciousCarp takes 2nd Place with 42,590 points, and I take 3rd with a score of 42,550. @Gianna came in 4th Place with her score of 31,560, @RickR takes 5th with 31,320, @Sabertooth takes 6th Place with 31,300, and @TrekMD rounds things out with 18,630 points.

  17. A gamer/reseller in a local group is having a garage sale today. Turns out he lives only 5 minutes from me, so I stopped by this morning. There was an in-the-box Odyssey 2 for $20 that was calling me, but I paused to think about my collecting rule not to go older than the 2600. While I was thinking about it, someone snagged it--how rude πŸ˜† but moral crisis abated 🀣 I've been on a Dynasty Warriors kick lately. When I mentioned that I enjoyed the combat in Drakengard, someone recommended that I give Dynasty Warriors a look. Turns out he was right. I'm currently playing Dynasty Warriors Gundam on the Xbox 360.

  20. Some recent pick-ups with the most notable one being the Intellivision 1 in the Super Video Arcade shell. Crossbow recently posted this for sale. All the games came from two visits to Pink Gorilla this month. It was cool seeing CIB Jaguar games. There was another one or two that I left in the store. If they're still there the next time I visit, I'll grab them. I now have three CIB Jaguar games (Tempest is the third one).

  21. I've picked up a lot lately. Mostly replacements for my collection I lost in the fire. Wii Sports Resort, Fable 3, Fallout 3, Forza Motorsport 4, Odama, just to name a few, are new games I've never owned before. Also went and got an original gold cart of The Legend of Zelda for the NES just because I've always wanted one.

  24. One option for the 5200, is to sent it without the top half of the console shell. The way I do the UAV I would only need the mainboard and the lower portion of the case. That is what Al did when he sent me his 5200s to get the old AV upgrade in them redone as the original wiring had some loose in a few places. He also wanted me to power convert them so they didn't need the switch box anymore. The point was to reduce the weight slightly in shipping, and make it less prone to breaking since the top half is what is usually most a risk. Al used some painters tape to hold the mainboards in place of the lower case shell during shipping. Although I don't like the idea as much. If you just sent the mainboard and the expansion plate, I could fully mod up that much and it could be reassembled into the case plastics after. But the expansion plates once removed, tend to pop out really easily after that and I usually apply some epoxy inside around the edge of the plate to make sure it doesn't come loose afterwards. And @- Ξ© - you do know about the Sophia upgrade right? While not VGA, it does provide a DVI digital output and you could use a DVI to VGA adapter or whatever you needed at that point. The Sophia is expensive though. And while I haven't installed one, it doesn't look to be that bad. Worse part is where to route the DVI connector. Most seem to route it through the center back through the controller storage area but I' don't like that idea at all and would rather route it to the expansion plate or something.

  44. Two updates I finally updated the leaderboard! I will be taking a break running these games after this month. It has been fun, but trying to keep up with scoring can be time consuming. When the month ends, if y'all want to keep this game going, either with no score or with someone else keeping track I am cool with that. If there is someone who wants to start a new thread game in July, you also have my blessing. Thanks for playing these games. I hope you've enjoyed them!

  45. Here's a picture of mine. It's in good shape. Interestingly, my controllers aren't white like yours/Young's. I got this one a LONG time ago (I want to say 20 years ago) from a local guy who sold it pretty cheap because he said it was broken (it failed some diagnostic cart he had). I've never had an issue with it. It works perfectly. No idea what he was talking about. At the time, I had a regular brown Intellivsion that was pretty beat up. I loved this one so much, I sold off the other. I forgot to mention the other reason I like the Sears model so much is the lack of coiling on the controller cords. I hated that on the regular Intv...it felt like the controller was being pulled out of your hand no matter how close you sat to the console.

  49. Ever wanted better video output from your Intellivision console? Maybe? There are few options for video upgrades on the Intellivision with pretty much only composite solutions openly available to the masses. However, all of the various composite kits have their plus and minus. Some over saturate some of the colors and they look wrong, others aren't totally compatible with all TVs etc. There was an RGB output solution a few years back but it too had some compatibility issues with different scalers and converters and isn't commonly available. Today's video, ITC#75 takes a look at more recent option for the Intellivision that provides us with YUV or component video output using a dual purpose RGB/YUV board designed by AtariAge member 'The_Crayon_King'. His RGB board solution is a nice small PCB that makes installation quite versatile. While the RGB output of Crayon's board still gave me compatibility issues, the YUV output from this earlier design board of his has worked quite well for me. I go over the details of the board and go over the complete installation process of installing one Crayon's boards into an Intellivision model 2 console using the YUV output. The_Crayon_King has already developed a newer version of this board that provides much improved RGB compatibility with devices like the Framemeister and OSSC. However, the new board still features YUV output and the design of the newer board is close to this older one with pretty much the exact same install process being needed. Thank you for watching and I hope this helps others looking to install one of these older kits or one of his newer ones when they are available.
