  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. 😏😉

  16. Do a search for "Sandrine" and "ScanX" for the Atari ST. It's been a long time, but I know I've had that same Umax scanner hooked up to an ST with one of those. It works with many different brands of scanner.

    Famicom - It Finally Begins

    I got a Famicom with its original box and a Famicom Disk System back in late 2019. One of the first new items for my rebuilt collection after the fire. Anyway, yeah, it is CRAZY small. I love the color scheme, though, and I think I prefer it over the White and Gray we got here with the NES. As for Japan-exclusive games, I will suggest "Nuts & Milk," one of the first Hudson Soft releases for the system, "F1 Race," a Pole Position-like racer that strangely never came to America, and "Devil World," a title designed by Shigeru Miyamoto that DID get a European release, but still to th

  20. This is interesting to me as I’ve recently acquired a big box Silent Service II for the Atari ST. This appears to be a Silent Service clone, no? Wondering which version it’s on-par with? Awesome video Omega!

  22. Naw. The main reason I got that phone was because it was cheap ($5.00) and I could use it with my acoustical modem. That phone had a funky proprietary connector so I had to add a couple of RJ-11 jacks to the cable. The thing was, that phone would NEVER ring, which never bothered me much because line 1 was the main house line and the other phones on it would ring and I would just press LINE 1 and pickup the phone. I would only press LINE 2 when I wanted to call the bulletin boards. I always assumed the lights, hold button and ringing features were controlled some Bell System box I didn't h
