  1. Hi everyone ๐Ÿ™‚ Does anyone enjoy traveling? If so, where have you been? What's your favorite place to visit? I have been to various different states, and have been to the Bahamas. I enjoy going to Nashville and taking road trips to Illinois (where I'm from) and love going to different museums in Chicago. I haven't been anywhere too exciting besides typical tourist spots (like Key West). I think it would be nice to visit Hawaii sometime!

    Good luck on your move! ๐Ÿก๐Ÿ‘
  3. Yes, I used new batteries but it was having some difficulty. I just cleaned it out a bit which worked!
  4. I've moved around so many times there's a lot of boxes in the garage that haven't been touched since I moved into this house 5 years ago. While going through one of them I came across this Game Boy I didn't even remember having. It was in a black velcro case with a few cords, a few instruction manuals inside including Wheel of Fortune, an NBA game, and a couple other sports games. My grandparents, who have since passed, loved going to garage sales which is where the Game Boy came from. It doesn't seem to work any longer but it's still cool to have. Got it to work, it just needed a little help ๐Ÿ™‚
  5. They made the 2600 adapter for the 5200, so they were going to do the same for the 7800. I don't think they wanted 5200 owners to feel left out when the system was canceled so soon! ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

  7. I did a little more research and here is what I found: A May 22, 1984 article by David E. Sanger of the New York Times entitled "Atari Video Game Unit Introduced" (P.3 Section D) states: I guess thatโ€™s the answer, no matter what happened with Warner and the Tramiels, Atari was killing off the 5200. Itโ€™s crazy to think a game system could come and go in 18 months!

  9. Here's the playable demo โฌ‡๏ธ robotron_20200516_demo1_NTSC.bin
  10. Have you guys seen this? Champ Games is showing off another amazing arcade port for Atari 2600. They made Robotron: 2084 for the 2600, it looks really nice and flicker free! Check it out:
  11. Before the Tramiels showed up, does anybody know what Warner Communications Atari was going to do with the 5200 in 1984 after the 7800 would've come out? Were they going to keep developing games? They were going to release a 7800 cartridge adapter so 5200 players could upgrade. It's crazy to think that the 5200 died 18 months after it came out. I'm wondering what other plans they had?
  12. 2014! That is a long time! I'm glad you are still here ๐Ÿ˜Š
  13. Here is my score so far. I played using paddle controllers. It seems like I go a while on the first ball, and then once I lose a ball I go through them really quickly! You guys have really good scores!
