  1. Here's my theory. It was programmed by Ed Averett, who programed the majority of the O2 games, which is quite an accomplishment, even if all the games aren't the best. How did he pump out so many games? Taking as many shortcuts as he could including using the same foundation for most of the games. That's why I believe a lot of his games have the same score bar on the bottom, allowing you to enter your initials the same way and all restart immediately. It probably saved him a lot of time compared to making a new game from the ground up. The restarts can be a pain if you are trying to enter

  2. Good job, @Marco1019. How strange that the emulator doesn't do the voice. And this game displays the quirk of almost every O2 action game: only one life, and the game just restarts on it's own after dying. WHY????

  4. The cart LightBlue2222 used for his 63,260 score was the 1987 released version. I have 6 Pole Position carts at the moment, and some of them are the 1987 version. I'll dump them as soon as I can and let everyone know the results. The person from Atariage, "MayDay", who got the same score back in 2014 used the Stella emulator. He wasn't sure where he got the ROM image from, either Atariage or EmuParadise.

  5. Regarding Atari Collection I on Evercade, I like the inclusion of the 7800 titles but there was some duplication across the two Atari collections that I felt was unnecessary. Also, I would have preferred the collections by console like the EXCELLENT Lynx collections.

  7. I'm planning a retro gaming "battle jacket" in a punk/metal style. I'm currently agonizing over the image to use for the back patch which is the centerpiece of any battle jacket. I've narrowed it down to Joust, Missile Command and RoadBlasters...

    A 3D Printed Battery Cover

    Before I type anything else -- special thanks to @Atari Creep. I wanted to share this little project that Chris helped me out with. I had a Mattel Electronics "Battlestar Galactica" LED game that was in very poor shape. I cleaned it up as best I could on the outside, and also got the game working with a little bit of battery acid cleanup and a new battery connector. It's a fun game, but it wasn't very easy to play while trying to hold the battery in with my fingers! Whoever owned this before me used tape to hold the battery in. But that's not a good idea. There's chemically encruste

    Mega Cartridge?

    Well that's the problem, from what I've been told they are all 'common cartridges' with little to no value, so selling them would be like giving them away for less than what I paid, and keeping them will be out of the question when I downsize.

    Yeah, manual stinks and for over a year the idea of reviewing the game has been somewhat intimidating to me. Thankfully there is more information out there. I'm also planning to make a video guide / walkthrough for the game at some point. But yes, you should totally try to beat the game after all these years! 👍

  13. PS - the instruction sticker on the back is very obviously a repro too, and that's a whole other story. Finding a copy of the sticker was a challenge. Once I had one and cleaned it up, getting Windows to print the image to an exact size was an even bigger challenge. I used just a tiny bit of glue stick so it's easy removable. Again, I think it's important that it's clearly a repro part. This ended up being readable/usable, and I'm very happy with the result.

  18. Thank you! It's my 1st time playing Odyssey 2 on OpenEmu. There may be some sort of addition to provide the voice. I really don't know. And yes, the quick and unannounced restarts was a shock to me lol.

I would not use larger capacity SD cards. Larger one's MIGHT be better for the partition method - more on that later... - I created a new folder on my Win10 PC named "AUTO". I Wrote bigdos.prg AND Orion's driver's to the AUTO folder. - I wrote the AUTO folder to a Pre-Atari formatted, 720k floppy disk. I have been told extenal USB floppy drives will not work with Win10. External USB floppy drives might w

    Mega Cartridge?

    I would keep the original cartridges for their collector's value. After all, if they aren't played as much, that reduces wear and tear on the system and cartridges. But, that would be up to you, of course. Just a friendly thought, anyway.

    I suppose you could always try selling them.

  23. I have an adapter cable. I'm trying to remember the details, and I can look it up if you want names. All I remember is that a guy on Atari Age or Facebook was making adapter cables for some other system. Amiga or Vectrex or ??? I can't remember. I sent him a message and asked if he could make something similar for O2 if I provided the wiring details. He said yes, and now I have an adapter. It's a big improvement. But still, the first thing you'll notice is that there's a bit of a lag in the 02 joysticks. I just assumed it was the mylar design they use in their joystick...and that
