    Thanks Rick.  I forgot there's also reverse-image apps to figure out the sources of images.

    Scott Stilphen got a reaction from intellicolecovisonary in Let's talk Crystal Castles on the Atari 2600.   
    Atari announced it would be for all their consoles and computers in 1984, but as we know, only the VCS version was released.  A prototype version for the computers existed in 1984 (and was leaked out soon after Atari changed hands) and was later revamped and released in 1988, but neither version supported the trak-ball.  The game was unofficially converted to the 5200 and someone made a version of it that supports the trak-ball:
    https://atariage.com/forums/topic/247585-crystal-castles-no-trackball-support/
     
    Considering all the effort that was put into making and marketing the trak-ball controllers, it's shameful how little they were supported.  At the $45 retail price they were first advertised for, it was pretty much a sham, especially when Atari was telling people the controller "takes a good game (Phoenix, Missile Command, Galaxian, Space Invaders) and makes it awesome".  In the case of the VCS controller, it was never fully supported, as no games were ever made that took full advantage of it; all the controller ended up doing was translating the analog movement into the standard up/down/left/right movements.  Years later someone hacked a few VCS games to take advantage of analog movement:

    Scott Stilphen got a reaction from Justin in Question(s) regarding 2600 Pole Position   
    The cart LightBlue2222 used for his 63,260 score was the 1987 released version.  I have 6 Pole Position carts at the moment, and some of them are the 1987 version. I'll dump them as soon as I can and let everyone know the results.  The person from Atariage, "MayDay", who got the same score back in 2014 used the Stella emulator.  He wasn't sure where he got the ROM image from, either Atariage or EmuParadise.
