    Squad Challenge - Joust (Atari 7800)

    I got a 7800 emulator running on my Wii. I played a lot of Joust on my 2600. I have the Midway collection that has it on Gamecube and PS2. It's great to know that I suck at the 7800 version just as much as all the other ones.

    Squad Challenge - Joust (Atari 7800)

    Here's a video I made of Atari 7800 Joust for this Squad Challenge. I got this one to actually work, unlike the Q*Bert one I tried to make last time. That one had commentary by yours truly, and for some reason I couldn't get the audio to mix properly (though it's worked fine before so I don't know what was wrong with it that time). This Joust video doesn't. Just gameplay. Another difference between this and my failed Q*Bert video is that this one is using emulation. Instead of using my 7800 and Joust cartridge, I am using my modded Wii U. That's why you can see the High Score Cartridge screen. I prefer using original hardware if I have it at my disposal, but this is okay I guess. At least it's nicer on your end; you'll have some nice composite-captured footage rather than the crummy RF my 7800 uses. But, anyways, after I gave up on a particularly bad first game I got a new personal best for this challenge: 79,150. I definitely have some room for improvement. I hate playing with the Wiimote so much. I might switch back to my 7800 soon, but I'm not sure if I'll have the time to.

    New RGB board testing and thoughts

    I hadn't said anything about this yet because to be honest, I had issues getting it to work for me through my normal AV setup here at the ITC. But now that I've got a way to actually see it and test it I'm happy to talk about a new RGB board I was only made aware of back in November. I was contacted out of the blue by a lurking AA member whose name is Yannick. He is from France and was telling me about his RGB board he had designed and was looking for someone to test it on an NTSC intellivision. That someone became me. This is easily the best I've seen a stock Intelly look but there are a few things to mention: - The RGB board is kinda big and so installation or rather, where to install it could be an issue for some. As you can see from my pics, I chose to install it in the only real open spot there is on the component side of the main PCB. If you were to add to the wiring that comes in the kit, you could mount the board in the empty space to the left of the mainboard but I don't like doing that for a number of reasons. - This RGB board will NOT work through an OSSC but I've a feeling it would likely work on the Framemeister although I do NOT have one to test that. In order to get this to finally work for me, I ended up having to get one of those inexpensive SCART to HDMI converter/upscalers. This is working quite well although I'm sure there is some lag etc.. being introduced into the mix here. - I do not know for sure if the colors I'm seeing are 100% correct. They likely are and I'm just not used to it due to how clear everything looks. - There is still some bleeding that is present on some colors and especially on colors with stark contrast to each other next to each other (Blues on Reds for example or Reds on black). - The kit came with an 8-pin female din connector, but I chose to use an old 9-pin mini din donated from an old Sega 32x. I have several of these types of RGB cables on hand so it is easier for me to use connectors I've already got cabling for. I've attached some pics to show the install I did and some pics I took off my phone aimed at my flatpanel LED in the game room to give you an idea of what I see. Keep in mind as this is my personal Intellivision, the installation was done in a manner to make it work and keeping it nice and neat wasn't the plan here. For now I'm okay with this as the wiring is basically the length it needs to be at for what I'm doing. Also notice I also have an older Retrofixes composite board installed as well but like all composite kits on the Intellivision, it sometimes makes me want to use the RF still due to the off colors the composite kits provide. For those interested let me know and I will put you in touch with Yannick if you want to try it for yourself. I'm not sure if I will offer this service as I can only test it with the equipment I have and cannot be sure that my clients would have AV stuff on hand that it would work properly with. Here is also a quick video I did early captured straight from my Intellivision to give you an idea of how it all looks and sounds through the converter I'm having to use.

    It's interesting how 3D printers can do so much for everybody. They're like the replicators from Star Trek, just not as advanced. Those machines could create things from nothing. The 3D printers need something as a base for what they're creating. Still, it's impressive and fascinating technology, and thanks for sharing about it. :O)

    Squad Challenge - Joust (Atari 7800)

    Just a little bit ago I played the NES port for the first time in a while. And wow. It pales in comparison to what we got on the 7800. I guess that goes to show you how excellent the 7800's arcade ports were for the most part, especially from GCC.
