    Hey guys! I am just your average Retro Gaming fan! Grew up with the Intellivision, Commodore 64 and Atari 2600. Still love to collect and play and I also have a YouTube channel called Brian's Man Cave where I show off and play Retro consoles and games My buds The Atari Creep, The No Swear Gamer and ArcadeUSA often mention t his forum on their channels, so I decided to hop on board. Here is my latest video about The Atari Creep:

    New Atari 2600 Homebrew - Galaga!

    The guys from ChampGames are currently working on an amazing home port of Galaga for the Atari 2600. I know NSG posted about it but this deserves its own thread. Head to the thread in AA to get the demo binary: Champ Games - Galaga 2600

    Greetings! Hello! Salutations!

    I'm new around here! My name is 'Dan' but I go by the online moniker 'Rocky Raccoon'. I've been collecting since about my teen years. I am currently 34. I like collecting a heck of a whole lot, and have a varied collection of consoles. My favorite era is probably the mid eighties, onwards. The first two machines I ever played on we're an Atari 2600 in my dad's basement on a B&W TV, and my Dad's Commodore 64. My favorite retrogame series is The Fantasy Zone series of games. I was first introduced to collecting through a dear old friend back in MA, USA, and have been in the hobby since. I've been learning to get into the technical side of the hobby-- learning to fix consoles-- diagnose problems and fix them, though I still have a long ways to go-- though I do have a background in electronic schematic reading thanks to CAD courses I took in high school that have generally helped me a bunch there. I learned about this place primarily through the NoSwearGamer on Youtube where this place was mentioned once in a while, and decided to come check it out. I also hang around AtariAge with the same user name.

    True Story, back in the day I rented from a store that had an amazing selection of games, I rented Tengen Tetris one day, loved it, a week later I returned to rent it again, I could not find it, I asked the clerk, he said pointed to the Nintendo Tetris, I was thrown off at first and said "Er, no, I don't think that is the one, the one I rented was not made by Nintendo". Long story short, he denied they had, OR EVER HAD any other version, even me clearly stating you DID because I rented it, he was trying (for some reason) to cover so hard "Are you sure it was HERE you rented it?", he absolutely would not budge on it, insisted they never had any other version so I just dropped it. Only years later, when I would come to read articles and info in magazines etc, would I learn the story of TENGEN TETRIS and TENGEN themselves, now I still do not know WHY exactly this occurred, maybe the clerk bought (or stole?) the TENGEN version because he had learned that TENGEN would have to pull sales? Maybe the store was ordered to PULL the game off their shelf? But in either of those cases WHY claim they NEVER had it in the first place? So whatever the reason I can only suspect wrong doing on the clerk or store managers part because of their behavior acting like they were never in possession of the game, like it was some highly illegal item like plutonium or something ๐Ÿ˜œ. Anyways, carry on, was not my intention to disrupt this thread but all this talk about TETRIS, OFFICIAL, TENGEN etc, just brought back that silly memory that comes back whenever I hear the TENGEN name lol. FEEL FREE TO MOVE THIS to OFF TOPIC or perhaps WEIRD STORIES under CLASSIC GAMING or something.......CARRY ON GUYS. ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿป

    Jeopardy

    Is anyone else besides me swept up in James-mania? In case you haven't heard, the current champ is obliterating the Jeopardy record books. After 9 games, he already owns the top 3 single day earnings records. He's a machine. Ken Jennings holds the total earnings record in 74 games. James is on pace to break that record somewhere in the 20 game range. It's like Jordan, Tiger & Ruth in their primes, all rolled into one. Here's the first time he broke it (he's done it two more times & I have a feeling he's not done yet):

    New (to me) Car

    When I was out of town for the holidays, I left my car parked with my soon to be ex-wife at the house. Living downtown now, I can't leave it in the same space for more than a day or two. I figure, I still own (and pay for) the driveway, right? She drove it and parked it overnight at a Christmas party where it got sideswiped. The driver didn't leave a note so I had to make a claim under insurance. If it were a normal car, it would've been a fix of about $4,000, but because it was an EV (a LEAF) there are special battery handling requirements that made it a total loss. I was shocked, frankly. So I went a month without a car. I live close to work and bike a lot so it wasn't horrible but getting across town on transit or out to LA or Orange County was a pain. And then there's the rain. So last weekend, after 8 years of driving a zero emission vehicle, I returned to the dark side of fossil fuel with this gently used MINI Cooper S 4-door. The MINI has 189HP and was the closest thing I could find with the zippiness and immediacy of an EV. I will really have to watch my speed though as I keep blowing past 80 without feeling it. They actually have a "speed warning" that you can set to your MPH of choice. It's currently on 90. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Anyway, a week in and I'm really loving it. It's decidedly retro with chrome toggle switches everywhere and bonnet stripes. It has super tight handling and is a dream on the freeway. It might be too much fun, really. Aside from the red, it's not exactly a midlife crisis car but it's as close as I am likely to get.

    Congratulations RadioPoultry! Congratulations @RadioPoultry on an excellent run! Super Mario Land is possibly one of the most important killer aps of all time, which along with Tetris helped launch the Game Boy to stratospheric dominance. For many of us this was the first Mario sequel we got to play, and we really loved joining Mario in a new adventure of ancient ruins, giant crabs, flying stone heads and strange creatures! I can never see the stone heads of Easter Island without thinking of playing this game out by the pool. Super Mario Land was our first GameBoy Squad Challenge, as well as our first Single-Life Run. I wasn't sure if we'd have a good turnout for our first Game Boy game, it was great to see so many of you jump in on this Challenge! @RadioPoultry won the Squad Challenge with a high score of 198,500. @Kid A was right on his tail with an incredible 181,390. @atarilbc brought his A-Game with his Lunchtime Unwinds, posting a high score of 87,510. @ThatBuffGamer posted an impressive 69,340. I showed up with @kamakazi20012, @Atari Creep and @RickR to post our best! Congrats to everyone who played! I'd encourage RadioPoultry to post his new high score on the Scoreboard, and maybe this Challenge can continue on! Our next Squad Challenge will be for the Atari ST. 2019 will be changing it up in High Score Squad with new challenges for Lynx, SNES, Genesis, Master System, Atari ST, Jaguar, 5200, TurboGrafx-16, Intellivision, ColecoVision, Game Boy and much much more, in addition to the usual lineup of video game systems. We may even have an Arcade challenge! Be ready to play all of these game systems, we'll be breaking new ground with more interesting Squad Challenges coming up very soon and throughout the year, and we hope to see you there.

    I was practicing a bit this past week. This is a game I didn't like, until this HSS informed me I was playing it wrong! I didn't realize it wasn't timed based, but missed shot based! Really changed things. All this time I thoughts it was a boring button masher... Here's my best score. Ironically, I ignored trying to keep up with the computer and ended up trouncing the cheater (since he is allowed to miss as much as he wants)! 1142 (Atari GH Vol 2, played on my 3DS)

    Squad Challenge - Tetris (NES)

    There's some truth behind the story @Justin mentioned about renting Tengen's Tetris. The area I grew up in had a chain of video rental stores called Vision Video. They had the Tengen version of Tetris. I rented it twice in a row. It was because of this game I discovered Tengen. I rented it twice in a row. I went to rent it a third time and the rental store refused to rent it again. I asked why? They did give me an honest answer, though. If the store wanted to continue to rent out Nintendo games the store had to remove any games that were not licensed by Nintendo. It was Nintendo's "rule". That was the answer they gave me. I asked if it could be purchased to which they answered with a solid no that it had to be sent back to Nintendo to be destroyed. Such a sad fate for a great game. That also went for Super Sprint and other Tengen Games that were actually good games. I'm surprised to learn decades later that some Tengen games survived. It's why I'm hellbent on finding any Tengen games for the NES I can. I would still like to know how after the lawsuits Tengen did manage to get a few of their games as official releases.

    Here's pics of my Intellivision stuff... Got all of this from a coworker. It was literally one of those, "Look what I found in my mom's attic" kind of deals. He tried selling it all to a local game store, but didn't like their offer then he came to me. I told him he should have come to me first. lol I offered him $50 and he accepted. Then I found out that I could only get $40 out as cash at the register, so I told him I'd owe him the other 10 and he said not to worry about it. The $40 was already over twice what the game store offered him. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ (Sorry the pics aren't that great... need to take updated ones. These are on my old apartment's kitchen floor and the dark color tile wasn't a good choice for a background.)

    Restoring a Big Trak

    I just purchased a Milton Bradley Big Trak on ebay. It was in broken/parts/as-is condition. The price was right, and I thought it would be fun to try and restore it. For those that are unfamiliar -- the Big Trak was an electronically programmable toy vehicle from 1982. More info here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Trak I always wanted one, thanks to commercials like this: I thought I could skip the apple and deliver a beer to my father. Alas, the budget would never allow for this purchase. Until now! Well, the Big Trak arrived yesterday. As advertised, in pretty sad shape. Lots of dirt and grime, a broken battery terminal, and worst of all, a broken front axle. So I immediately got busy. I took apart the wheels and applied some epoxy to that broken axle. Everything removed got washed. Next steps are to take the top off and see what's going on with the electronics. And replace that battery terminal. I've got mixed expectations. I think at the low end, I may end up with a Big Trak that is cosmetically good, but doesn't work. I'd be ok with that...it will look great on a shelf. Best case, I get it fully working. The main body section, not yet opened: Broken battery connector: Fixing Axel Foley. Using a lot of epoxy will make it stronger, and it will still fit in it's slot. Removed parts have been washed.

    New Gaming Rig

    I finally got a TV stand for my new place and hooked up some of my favorite consoles: a PS4 Pro, AVS, Saturn, Jaguar and 2600. I'm running the classic consoles through a RetroTINK to a 49" Samsung 4K HDR TV. It looks amazing! I did have my 7800 hooked up but the RetroTINK and the LHE mod don't seem to get along too well. After about 20 minutes, I started getting really weird interference. The LHE mod is temperamental so I'm going to try a simple modded 7800 eventually. Anyway, here are a few pictures. The screenshots are from my phone and do not do the picture justice. I also wanted to show my attempt at cable management to get everything off the floor. Because this TV stand has tall legs, it looked really messy at first. I even grabbed a wooden box for the power strips and bricks.

    Ch...ch...ch...changes

    I appreciate all of the support. I know things could be a lot worse and there are a lot of positives. I'm just throwing myself into my work, getting back in shape (20 down, 15 lbs to goal!), playing guitar and reconnecting with friends. Oddly, my twenty year-old daughter and I haven't been this close since she was a pre-teen. It's been cool to spend time together. I went back to my hometown of Columbus, OH over the holidays and it was just the recharge that I needed. It can only get better from here. A quick retro gaming story from my trip. My buddy of 28 years took me to a barcade in north Columbus for some pinball and games. We went to a Ms. Pac-man and about 8 minutes in to my play, he was like "I mean, I know you are into this stuff but I didn't know you were this good. Do you think that you'd die before I can grab us another round?" LOL! Even with the blue "Tron" concoctions I was drinking I left with the high score. It wasn't terribly high; I think they must turn off the machines. I'll take it anyway. ๐Ÿ˜‚ @RickR has it right; its sunrise in Long Beach, CA. Also known as "The LBC." As in, "atariLBC." I moved here in my early twenties and it's truly home now. Again, thanks everyone and I hope each of you had a merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    Congratulations nosweargamer! BOMBS AWAY!! Congratulations to nosweargamer on another win! Great to see so many people turning out for Canyon Bomber and watching everybody's game improve in the thread! I love that you guys are so willing to help each other out with tips and tricks. nosweargamer posted an amazing 1517 points! Kid A had a strong showing with an impressive 1269 points! This was both our last Squad Challenge in the old forums and our first Squad Challenge in the new forums! It was a bit of a bumpy ride but we got through it. A huge congratulations to everybody who turned out for this Squad Challenge and posting absolutely incredible scores! Also a very special welcome to our new member Lauren Tyler who jumped right into High Score Squad and posted her first challenge! Welcome Lauren! chas10e, greenween, RickR, Atari Creep, and Lauren Tyler all posted terrific scores. *Note that greenween's 644 point score was submitted as "You'll just have to take my word for it" due to spilling a drink on his camera. Congrats to everyone who played! I'd encourage nosweargamer to post his new high score on the Scoreboard! I have some cleaning up to do in the Scoreboard now that we've upgraded to the new forums, I should have that done by the end of the week. Way to go guys!
