  2. I believe that is it (unless someone says otherwise?) sadly, there was supposedly an unreleased prototype of Track 'n Field. https://www.gamesdatabase.org/game/atari-5200/track-and-field love my 5200, I have an excellent conditioned one still, 4 port but with those modifications that give it compatibility for those titles that originally did not work with it. I also have a Atarimax Falshcart but actually have several original carts, I really need to play with it more.

  3. Hi Guys. I have a question... Is this all of the 5200's official sports games? I'm not counting Ballblazer. I'm not missing any? Volleyball or anything I don't know about?

    The Baseball game is excellent. There's a homebrew also: RealSports Curling. But that, of course, is not an official game but has been packaged to look as official as its gets. 😉 By the way, AA does make Track & Field carts.

  5. Heh, oh trust me I am old-school and experienced, I learned the hard way through much tinkering over the years. I know all about the effects on magnets on TUBE TV's, degaussing etc. I appreciate the concern but from what I can see, even with the BOSE speakers literally up against the side there is no ill affect, I suspect it is very well shielded. 😎😉

  6. Very nice setup! Just be careful with sitting speakers that close to your TV. I'm not trying to burst your bubble but I don't want to see your stuff get ruined from a slight oversight. Some speakers have a magnet in them and can distort the beam in the tube. So many things come with magnets these days that are harmful to old computer, TV, and console gear that it gets overlooked, missed, and then some wonder why those things don't work or are acting weird. And I just don't want you to experience that as it would not be pleasant. 😉 Again, very nice setup. I like seeing these as it can give ideas to those running out of room or just starting.

  7. I have always thought the Japan version of the Super Nintendo looked way better than what us American gamers received. But there's more here than meets the eye. Believe it or not there's also a bit of a difference in quality, too. For whatever reason the SFC is actually more structurally solid than the SNES is. As much I like the SNES, and I hate to say it, it feels cheap compared to the SFC. Insides are identical so if you take the games out of their shells and pop them in the other unit they will in fact play. But the plastic moldings to each console and their games are very different in quality. For me, personally, the SFC is a more pleasurable experience overall. And, yes, I left the fishing duck sticker on the controller. Someone, at one point, loved this thing enough to put a sticker on it. It's survived this long. I'm not going to be a sticker killer. I forgot to mention...this one was bought as JUNK as well. Fixed and working fine. Nothing was wrong with it.

  8. 😎Yay! Finally my little “retro gaming” corner is pretty much complete! The first image displaying Dragon Spirit on my TG-16 is the final setup after cleaning, rewiring and organizing. Middle image with SuperNES Lemmings displayed was starting to come together, added the little BOSE SPEAKER which packs more punch then the tinny sounding TV speakers, I compared and it provides the rich deep arcade cabinet sound which compliments this sharp little Toshiba crt. Also, added a nice AV SWITCHER with blue LED display, I’ve had it for years doing very little with it, I like it as it match’s the TV and even my Retrobit RetroTrio which are all silver for that classic electronics aesthetic. The last image is what I started with, a mess, cluttered, dusty, unorganized but I spent the day with the goal of getting this long overdue project completed. Finally satisfied overall, it’s not much but at least it’s something! I have literally no room for my hobby stuff but this tiny little retro gaming corner is at least something and I got SNES/Genesis/NES covered with the RetroTrio with a Tg-16 underneath and Everdrives carts for all of them. With this setup I can easily add in my Dreamcast or Ps1/Ps2/GameCube etc when needed. I look forward to actually playing and enjoying my systems.

  9. I don't remember if I posted these or not but I got these earlier this year. For a very long time I wanted to import 2 consoles: a Famicom and Super Famicom. The reason? Game differences and games we didn't get. So I set out to find the cheapest consoles and games I could. I found this first. This was being sold as junk, not working or not working correctly. And here it is after I got it. It's been cleaned, inside and out, and I had to replace the carbon pads on both controllers. As you might can tell, I grabbed a few "extras" as well. Disk drive needs a new belt, though, but the one I used temporarily indicated the drive does work. I'm very happy to have this. But, wait! There's more.

  10. Love Rygar on the Lynx! And that's a nice looking Lynx 1 you have there. I've never used the original Lynx in person, I'm more familiar with the Lynx II unit. 😞 And I believe that is the first Xenophobe cart I've seen for the Lynx. I've never seen it anywhere other than ads.

  11. I have several movies for my PSP. It's cool being able to watch them on this handheld. 🙂

  12. Hard to see in image but to the left of the Composite AV input jacks is a headphone output jack which pkaugs directly into the BOSE Aux input. The Speaker is powered / charged through a little mini USB input. Its amazing as through the TV speaker set around 90% volume is equal to volume level with BOSE turned up all the way MAX but the TV needs only be turned up to around level 8 lol. So much more punch and depth to the lows it sounds like an arcade cabinet. I should have done this so long ago but other priorities and life issues mixed in with some procrastination I guess, but it's done now and I plan on playing more retro games as I am having fun exploring all the library of titles revisting cherished classics and discovering all kinds of I never personally played before. Anyway, the best part? I am literally making use the best I can of what I have but the BOSE SPEAKER and the little 13 inch TOSHIBA CRT from 2005 (I looked it up) were finds in our electronics recycling ! I was so glad to find a nice tiny quality CRT for this purpose!

  13. Wow @MaximumRD that setup looks so clean and organized compared to the image on the bottom! It's really nice to click on this and randomly see the wooden Atari drink coaster make an appearance with you playing TurboGrafx-16! How cool.
