  1. Okay I finally found one... This is me in 1985 with an Atari 5200 display unit I later cannibalized for TI-99/4A use. I used the unit above to make the hutch with the 19" monitor for my TI-99/4A in 1987

  3. I have very few pics of me in general and even less so from back then. But here is one that I know was sometime in the mid 80s. This was at my step-dad's mom's house (Step Grandma?). Anyway, we would go over there quite a bit. This was taken in her kitchen. No idea what that robot is now, I'm guessing it was a GoBot that used multiple GoBots to form the larger one standing here. Anyway, that is a much younger me...

  4. I honestly think that one game gets overlooked and is more rare than it is given credit for. That game is Basketbrawl. I only have it loose and got it way back in the early 2000s. But I've yet to see that game loose or otherwise in the wild (Except conventions) in the past 20 years. They also rarely come up on ebay as compared to other games thought to be more rare.

  5. I finally managed to pick up my loose Mean 18 at a GameXchange in Missouri about 10 years ago and got it as part of a pack of 6 7800 games bundled together for about $30. Even back then Mean 18 was worth more than the $30 asking by itself. Yes it came home with me that day and the rest of the carts were given away as part of a 7800 bundle that was given away during one of my hourly prize drawings when I used to host my own convention locally.

  6. There is a really nice game that has decent graphics, plays well and does not fit the "standard" first person shooter genre, but is actually quite fun to play... if you have more than 10 minutes to spare. What is that game? Well, it's... SUBMARINE COMMANDER Below you will find the PDF files for the documentation and a keyboard strip in PDF format. To download the program in .BIN format for the FinalGROM or FlashROM just... << CLICK HERE >> Submarine Commander (Revised 2).pdf Strip - Submarine Commander.pdf

  7. So let’s talk about the mods. I replaced the Haptic feedback with a pair of Dayton Audio DAEX25 exciters and a new amp to Cary the load. With these exciters I can feel the ball roll down the table and every Target and bumper is felt inside the cabinet. In doing so I had to move the accelerometer into the center of the table because the new exciters triggered the tilt too much. The cabinet bumps and thumps now and feels alive. The placement of the new exciter‘s are right under the flipper buttons, that way I could feel every jump and bump, The new amp is installed underneath the table.

  8. Okay, this thread has only one requirement, each music video posted has to have a video game or computer present somewhere in the video, either on screen or of the unit itself. I'll leave it to you to judge if the music is worthy or not. To start if off...

  9. I was able to score wave 6 and have been loving the new table for a week now... and I’ve already done two mods, probably some of the most important mods to do right off the bat. I’ll explain after I show it off. The screens are amazing, everything looks sharp and the tables don’t disappoint. If you can get one, don’t hesitate, get it.

    Have you ever done it?

    Not quite to that extreme no. What I did do back in the day, was to create my own book of spells for King's Quest III when I "Creatively acquisition" a copy to play for myself back in the day. I used First Publisher for the graphics and everything in it. I have NO idea whatever happened to it. I also remember recreating the logo for Sorcerian in First Publisher and it took me a week to pixel by pixel it in. Was quite pleased with the results when I was done with it. No idea where that file is anymore either these days.

  14. Well you know I had it in my mind ever since seeing this thread to get around to going through my boxes and finding all my Ti stuff but as often the case life and priorities and crap going on in my life meant I never got around to it HOWEVER I just happen to stumble on this video I made back in 2011 for a Ti Facebook group and since really nothing has changed regarding the content other than it's all just been sitting in storage this is still as good a video as any I could currently make so I might as well be lazy and just share it here to represent my Ti collection. 😏😉

    Have you ever done it?

    Kind of....I have a custom cartridge version of "M.U.L.E." for the Atari computers. I bought it on ebay a long long time ago. Maybe 20 years. It was one of those things that once I knew it existed, I *had* to have it. I probably paid way too much for it back then. But MULE is one of my all-time favorite games. It remains one of my favorite items in my collection.

    An addendum to my blog post with a bit more about me: I never had a Colecovision in the 80's. However, I drooled over them in the stores. I remember being totally blown away by the pack-in game "Donkey Kong" on the demo unit at my local "Payless" store. At the time, there was a choice for gamers for the latest system: The Atari 5200 or the Colecovision. As much as I love Atari, I would have chosen the Colecovision in a heartbeat. It had more unique games and they looked great. My next system after my Atari 2600 was the Commodore VIC-20, which I loved. I did get a CV about 15

  27. Sure, that qualifies. Let's open it up to anything that has a video game or computer (70's-80's) in it, either on screen of the unit itself.

  36. In the immortal words of Charlton Heston, "I'll give up my video game systems when you pry them from my cold, dead hands" But seriously I would play most though emulation and only keep the systems that don't emulate well like the N64.

  37. Sure, you can do that. I think it would be cool. Say, isn't there anything on here about the Dragon's Lair port for the TI99 by Tursi? I thought there was something about it on Atari.io. It looks pretty impressive, from what I have seen. Thanks for letting me share. :O)
