    20 Games or Less

    Hmm. This is going to be hard. So, I'm going to do a couple of scenarios for this. First scenario. 360 would be my first choice but that console is a power hog and most games I have require an internet connection for a license check. That's a no-go. And if we are running on limited power sources, like a battery or something, power consumption has to be considered. The 2600 would be the one to use the least amount of power in terms of voltage and amps. I have ran one off of a battery pack decades ago and it lasted about 5 hours. Given that, and if I am allowed only one console on the trip, the 7800 would be my choice. It uses the same amount of power plus offers two platforms. Now the games. Adventure Radar Lock Mountain King Planet Patrol E.T. Jr Pac-Man Enduro Space Invaders Warlords Space Shuttle Starmaster Moon Patrol RS Volleyball Centipede Asteroids (7800) Joust (7800) Food Fight (7800) Galaga (7800) Dark Chambers (7800) Solaris Now, on with scenario two. If the number of consoles is not important then I would have to pick these: NES Classic (already has 30 games on it and uses only 5 volts) Atari 7800 Game Boy Advance Sega Master System The NES Classic would have to be my first choice because of the amount of games already on it. That's a no-brainer. The 7800 again makes this list to offer a wider variety of Atari games for those times when only an Atari game will do. Game Boy Advance has to make this list because of its backwards capability to the original Game Boy and Game Boy Color. And Sega Master System for some classic arcade game play that only Sega can deliver. Finally, what games would I bring with all these systems: Out Run After Burner (SMS) Asteroids (7800) Space Invaders (2600) Radar Lock (2600) Galaga (7800) Astro Warrior (SMS) Jr Pac-Man (2600) Solaris (2600) Xevious (7800) R-Type (SMS) Super Mario Land (GB) Alleyway (GB) Dark Chambers (7800) Adventure (2600) Enduro (2600) Space Harrier (SMS) Pokemon (Any GB/GBC/GBA Version) Space Shuttle (2600) Planet Patrol (2600) That would be my choices. I would have taken my 5200, too, but I would need more that 20 games for that one. The Lynx would go with along with its power adapter. Jaguar? Definitely if given the opportunity. It's too darn difficult to pick just one. Atari computers most likely not but only because of how much power it would take to run one. Power would be a rare commodity so any way to preserve it would be top priority.

    NES classic (mini) controller mod.

    Actually thinking of redoing this mod again. I want to be able to utilize the difficulty switches and use the power button to choose a new game. I don't have to use a Wii classic controller to reset my console. using a Super Nintendo control, all I have to do is press down and select at the same time and it'll reboot back to the main menu to choose a game. I enabled that when I modded my NES classic. I don't need a home button at all. Should I remod my console, I'll record the process and post it

    20 Games or Less

    Someone on Instagram created this tag #20gamesorless - the idea is to pick your 20 must haves or less whether they're great games or meaningful in some way. Or what if you were stranded on a deserted island, with power of course, that sort of thing. You can pick games for any console or mix and match systems but I just went straight up with Atari 2600 today... have you even played Atari today? The guy who started the tag went with 2600 too and some of our titles are the same. These are some of my favorites and I would recommend them to newbies. If I were building an Atari Classic Mini these would be in there. What are some of yours?

    NES classic (mini) controller mod.

    So I did some experimenting with my cheap aftermarket Wii Classic controller and it worked pretty well when I tested it. Each of the 6 buttons on the NES controller (left, right, up , down, A, and have two parts. When the NES controller is assembled pressing each of the buttons creates a connection between the two parts and activates that button. You can wire the 4 directions and the fire button on the Atari joystick to one side of each of the 6 two-part NES controller buttons. Then wire the 6 Atari joystick ground wires to the other side of each NES controller button. When looking at the female end of the Atari connector the pins will be 54321 on the top and 9876 on the bottom. Here's what I did: 1) Split the ground wire (Atari joystick pin #8) into 6 wires, one for each direction and one each for the A & B buttons. 2) Wire those 6 ground wires to one side of the each of the 6 NES controller buttons we care about (left, right, up , down, A, and B). It appears that connecting them to either side of the two-part NES buttons works fine. 3) Wire the 4 Atari joystick directional wires to the 4 NES controller directional spots on the side opposite where you wired each ground wire. Pin #1 - Up Pin #2 - Down Pin #3 - Left Pin #4 - Right 4) Split the Atari joystick fire button into two and wire them to the A and B buttons of the NES controller like in step 3. Pin #6 - Fire button The four directions work perfectly and the fire button presses A and B simultaneously, which on a modded NES/SNES Classic is fine because only A or B are ever usable on any screen at any time when it comes to the Atari menu/games, not both. I only messed things up when I went to make the wiring permanent instead of having the wires taped in place. I am not good at soldering and the circuit board is just too small for me. I jacked it all up. If I want this to really work I'll have to find help in that department.

    Atari I/O LIVE!

    Thank you Eugenio! I hope you enjoy the content we have coming up! Thank you Arlen! I always felt the crash has become something discussed and analyzed in pop culture far more now than at the time. History Channel did not mention James J. Morgan, I wish they had. It's an important point that the quality of games had gone way up with GCC's involvement. I think one of the biggest opportunities for Atari at that time was the involvement or acquisition of little dev groups like GCC. Sega and Nintendo found success with different R&D groups. Atari had was a unique place to work, but it had become a monoculture and to break out of that rut with different labs located away from Sunnyvale to embrace new groups and new ideas outside of the Atari buildings on Borregas Ave. would've been a good thing. Grass Valley and GCC are two fantastic examples of this. If Warner could've held on for another year and pioneered some of the practices we saw with Nintendo and Sega I think we would've had an even more interesting story.

    I should have thought of this when I made my USB paddle controller take the stop out for the pot (its only used to mount the sensing disc on for the optical mouse circuit) and it becomes a spinner Now to build another one and add a second switch (for the super zapper) so I can play Tempest on my PC
