    Switch friend codes

    I don't have a switch 😢 but we do have a 3DS I have to replace the power port on before I can use it again. It was working for a little while. I miss it already. It was given to us and I found a new power cord for it for $5. One pin on the port just snapped so I don't use it until I can fix it. I'm hoping to get a Switch Lite someday.. I don't like the looks of the new Xbox or ps5. Besides Nintendo seems to be getting games I'm more interested in.

    Your first car

    My first car was a '79 Monte Carlo with T-Tops. 305 V-8. Had cruise control. Loved it. The picture is the closest I could find but the car in the image doesn't have T-Tops. My car also had dual exhaust with 12" glass packs. I loved that car! The 305 gave out and got replaced with a 350 out of a '84 I-ROC which I mounted a Edelbrock 600 cfm 4 barrel carb on top. Engine was sweet but waaay too much power for me to handle. I traded the car to my mother for her '84 Cadillac Cimmeron with manual 5-speed. Stupidest thing I ever did. Everything on my Monte worked and it was very clean. I miss it.

    I have replace a prior statement to avoid any issues between Atari.IO and the other Atari forum website. There is no need to bring any issues here or to other social media that I am using.

    Your first car

    I thought it would be cool if we could post photos and share stories of our first car My first car was AMC Eagle 4 x 4 station wagon. I think it was a 1986 model. AMC owned Jeep then and put a Jeep powertrain in an older AMC Sportabout wagon design. It had lots of power, room for all your gear, drove like a car and it could plow through mud and snow like a Jeep. My friends and I would take this on camping trips and tailgates and had lots of good times at a drive in movie theater that was still around back then. I can't find a picture of it right this sec but here's what it looked like in the brochure:

    I got laid off today, the first time in my career. When AT&T merged a bunch of companies (HBO, Turner, etc.) under the former Time Warner corp umbrella into a single entity WarnerMedia, we knew the new company would look to consolidate. It was a bit of a surprise given where I was situated organizationally, but a bunch of us were given pink slips. Because I got rolled up in a broad organizational move, it’s easy not to take this personally, so I’m glad for that. I had seen some friends struggle emotionally before. My wife recently got a new job, and she’s still within the new employee benefits enrollment window, so at least I don’t have to worry about getting a new job quickly for health insurance reasons. For the first time, I won’t be the primary coverage member 🙂 Lots of new firsts. Before folks feel too sorry for me, I am in a good position. First, I am grateful for an extremely stable career experience so far. I’ve experienced my share of company re-org and changes and always landed into a great place. The fact that this is my first involuntary job change is quite the feat in a 23 year career. Second, I’m also grateful that we will be given a nice severance package to ease the transition into the next gig. Third, I’m in an industry that is very robust and still hiring. And lastly and most importantly, God is good, and He is the Shepherd of my life. In Him, I find peace and rest. I share this news here because I like the I/O community and wanted to open up more on a personal level to foster better relationships. Also, I’ll have more time to spend on the monthly challenge, so you have been warned 🕹🕹🤣🤣

    Your first car

    I completely understand. My wife and I just went through the process of replacing a car, and we went back and forth between new and used. In the end, I decided we should set a dollar limit for used cars. We will NEVER spend more than $XX on a used car. So we ended up with a new car, and it was actually the exact same price as the used model we were considering. With an adult perspective, I think your dad and uncle picked a really nice car for you. It's safe, and it would have been hard to get into too much trouble in that Volvo.

    Mine was a 1981 Mazda GLC that I purchased in 1987. It lasted a year and then one of the wheel plates rusted out and the wheel fell off.

    Probably wouldn’t be remaking it. It was based off a licensed Famicom game. Thanks

    Hey Everyone I'm going to have a Bandai America Rep on my podcast if anyone has any questions you would like me to ask them let me know.

    How long have they been with the company? That kind of depends on what stuff I ask. If they have any knowledge on the early NES game Chubby Cherub, I would love to hear the story from someone who is with the company’s perspective. Interesting story, Chubby Cherub is. Also, what is your podcast called, @1Littlebeast? I will have to take a listen.

    Sort of sad to see some Commodore stuff still in there. I had a PET and the school I went to in first grade their first computers were all PETs and one CBM just like those in the video. That building has a lost of history.

    We are proud that Putt 18 has received a positive response from the Atari community. I worked with Video 61 and other team members to make sure this and other games are working properly before being released on cartridge.

    44,900 -- the action gets intense pretty quick after level 3! It doesn't take long to find yourself surrounded. I got the SN30 Pro gamepad by 8Bitdo the other day, and while I'm not a fan of gamepads, this one is very good. The d-pad is certainly very responsive and comfortable.

    Here is my first go that is worth posting - I am playing on the PS4 Arcade Archives because I was having some trouble with MAME. 19250 (As far as I can tell - Hamster does use original roms when creating their arcade archives games)

    17050. I feel like my first game is always best, then after that it’s all down hill, I start rushing and making stupid mistakes. Slow and steady wins the race.

    Hello, from AR (soon MO)

    I upgraded my 386 just to play Doom when it first came out.

    Yeah. Atari just needed to tweak it more. It's just a prototype, so expect the bugs. I guess. It definitely could've been a great title for the A2600. I agree with you on that. :O)

    The Elevator Action 2600 prototype is pretty bad, though it had potential if they kept working on it. Impressive for the hardware.

    Your first car

    No actual photos but my first car was a 1979 Volvo 264GL in brown. It looked similar to this. One Saturday afternoon, my dad and uncle went out, and a few hours later, they came back with it and said this is your car. I believe I was a few months shy of 17 so that would have been early part of 1986. My immediate reaction was why brown? I had it for 3 or 4 years and it had lot of mechanical issues... fuel pump fuse going out while I'm driving on the freeway and such. That car did a lot to scare me away from used cars ever since.

    JagDuo PCB discovered...

    Thanks go to John Hardie for scanning this in. Confirmation that work was done on this and not just a case mockup!

    Wanted to give some more thoughts on these controllers... I haven't tested both of my controllers...just the one I've actually take out of the box. I mentioned before about the keypad buttons sticking down? Thankfully that really hasn't been an issue in actual game play and I've found that those buttons are quite sensitive and do not require that hard a press to engage them. But one thing was bugging me at first and I'm glad a fix of sorts has been found. The issue was that I was playing Wolf3D (Jag version is my favorite version btw), and I was noticing that frequently when trying to turn left on the d-pad that I would actually move up and left. I found I had to press down on the bottom edge of the left d-pad side to make sure I only moved left and didn't move diagonally up/left. Well other buyers of the controller reported the same issue. Turns out the problem is that there is only a single center mount screw that holds the PCB in place. Because of this there is some play in the PCB allowing it to rotate up and down a tiny bit. If you have the d-pad side down too low, then it is easy to actually be hitting both the up and left contact pads on the pcb at the same time, hence the movement issues. The fix is to basically loose the center screw holding down the PCB, rotate the PCB just a few mils up on the d-pad side, wedge something between the PCB and the plastic that frames it, and then tighten the screw back down. It was mentioned to use a post-it-note folded up into a small square. I chose to use about 2cm from a cable tie I clipped off and fold that in half to wedge in there. It did indeed fix the issue. They could have avoided this by doing two things: - design the PCB with guide holes in it and plastic pegs molded into the top shell to align the pcb properly. You know like Nintendo and most other controller companies have been doing to ever now? - Make the contact pads on the pcb a bit smaller so that there is less risk of it happening in the first place. Still I've been enjoying the heck out of this controller as once I got that issue resolved it easily is the best controller I've used for playing games on my Jag.
