    Flex circuit needed.

    Thank you @CrossBow! I understand the costs involved. The McWill screen is beautiful and the results will be worth it to somebody who loves the Lynx and wants a nice reliable unit to play for years to come. I've been looking for somebody trustworthy to perform this mod, I especially like that you'll be recapping the unit and replacing the power components. I have an NOS Lynx I'll be using for this mod. I'll start saving up my ₩oolongs and we can do this sometime this year at a time that is convenient for us both.

    Pie Factory Podcast

    Tonight only: Pie Factory Podcast's Triumphant Return! Episode 88 features falling blocks discussed by these falling blockheads: what could possibly be more fitting? In this landmark 2019 comeback, join Sean and Jim as they talk about not Ferg. That's right, Ferg will not be mentioned in this episode. Listen to find out why! http://www.fab4it.com/piefactory/audio/PFP_Episode088.mp3 (BTW, it seems I'm only posting podcast stuff here...I apologize; I promise I'll try to make my posts more useful!)

    Baby Pac Man for Atari 7800

    Sorry to bump an old thread... Those are only the mazes from Baby Pac-Man hacked into a Ms. Pac-Man / Pac-Man Collection binary. The *full* Baby Pac-Man game for the 7800 is on AtariAge: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/278165-baby-pac-man/

    7800 Arcade Proline controllers

    I searched and didn't see this mentioned here yet so thought I would toss this out there... Curt Vendel is almost done with the XM modules and slated to be shipping them soon. In the meantime he has also created some new arcade style controllers for the 7800 and 2600. He started offering these around the middle of this past December. I ordered one of these and thought I would share my thoughts and provide some pics for others to see and get an idea about them. They come in both a left handed or right handed configuration on the joystick placement. I'm a right handed person, however, I've always been used to arcade style controllers and thus I ordered the left handed version controller. In fact, the exact left handed controller that was sent to me is the one that is shown in the pic of both controller types that curt posted on the AA forums. Control wise it feels really good and everything responded exactly as I needed it to. It is a bit more clicky than I would like in that it is loud when using it. Same for the buttons and I've been toying with the idea of perhaps putting leaf switch versions into mine. Speaking of the buttons, they feel nice but are reversed on mine. That is when using the 7800 diagnostic Utility in the Joystick test, Button 1 on the left is actually button 2 on my controller and vice versa. So it could be awkward to use if you are used to the buttons being mapped differently. I might change these at a later time to match what I'm more used to. The paddle controller works well or at least it did for the game of Steeplechase I was testing it with. On mine the On position is actually 7800 controller mode and the off position is Paddle mode. But I did find it odd that when using the Joystick test in the Diag utility, that the paddle has ZERO response on the other inputs variables and I'm used to see number values move across when using standard paddles in the ports for testing before. But the paddle does indeed work. Also an odd quirk to be aware of if you should you get one of these, is that on mine at least, it doesn't matter which position the switch is in, but if you move the paddle to the far right clockwise, it will always activate button 2. So in the game Commando for instance, if I had the paddle all the way to the right, then I would be tossing grenades constantly one after the other until they were depleted. So if you find odd button 2 behavior, you might check that you haven't moved the paddle knob all the way clockwise. I've included some pics of my controller in this post and of the inside so those asking about the circuit on how the switch controls the paddle lines..etc could have a better idea on how that is being done. Here is the original forum link over at AA regarding when these were announced and additional details from Curt about them: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/285914-new-desktop-arcade-controllers/page-1#entry4175100

    I can, but it isn't cheap. The kits are $120 + shipping alone and then I always advise that the power components and caps be replaced as well. As such there is quite a bit of labor involved so yeah..not cheap. If you have the kit already then naturally that takes a chunk off the costs overall, but still a pricey upgrade to have done.

    No disrespect meant to anyone else's work but Halo 2600 may be the greatest Atari 2600 homebrew ever made. That would have done so well had it been released in 1982. I'll also place Thrust+ Platinum by Thomas Jentszch up there along with Juno First for 2600 by Chris Walton. Lots of great people out there doing amazing things on these old game systems. Halo may be the one that I give the most play.

    Here are some work in progress screen shots for Venture on the Atari 7800 I have the first 3 map screens put together. I am planning to make this more like the arcade verses the 2600, Coleco, Intellivision, or even my 8-bit/5200 version. It may have several modes, default being arcade, other modes being home console, 8-bit challenger mode, and 7800 challenger mode. The issue I had with the 8-bit version was I could only dedicate 6 sprites for the enemies inside of each room. 7800 that can be extended to 8 or 10 maybe, or have something else like flames or energy bolts bouncing between walls. Many ideals are being considered.

    Here is my work in progress so far for Venture. Right now I am figuring out how to make one of my games work with the 7800 and use it as a template for the rest of the games that I am looking to port over later. Also get one game out on cartridge to see how it sells before deciding on more games. The other games on the list include Delta Space Arena, Laser Blast X, Tile Smashers, Putt 18 Miniature Golf, Animal Keeper, and Secretum Labyrinth.

    Here is the next WIP video now we have treasures and Winkys bow changing direction. I still need to work on the arrow sprites, but hope to have that done soon.

    Here is the next set of the extra 4 dungeons that were present on the Atari 8-bit version of Venture. These only get played if you choose challenger mode.

    Here are some more work in progress screen shots for Venture. I am starting to work on the individual dungeon rooms where you need to go in and get the treasures. I am sure I can make things multicolored at 160 resolution.
