  1. Atari Founder, Nolan Bushnell, Is Back In Gaming With An Alexa-Powered Board Game https://www.cnet.com/news/what-amazon-alexa-will-tell-us-in-2019/ http://8-bitcentral.com/blog/2019/alexaBoardGame.html?fbclid=IwAR1WeDdileP8kgBAzP919sOr0mz_zeEhDRkAb_BDfVUXoPN-3yGe687oSJU
  2. I sold my extra SD card on the AA forum but I'm trying to find more of them from my local Gamestops. I undercut the person on eBay that is selling my work at $23 per SD card (he's sold 89 of them already as I write this - https://www.ebay.com/itm/SD-Card-W-1-000-FULL-LIBRARY-for-Atari-2600-Flashback-Portable-Games-Player/273473915386 ) Let me know in a PM if anyone is interested in buying one.
  3. Thank you for the purchase!!! Make sure you read page 17 since you will find some title repeats within the book.

    Homebrew Titles that had 100 copies?

    Probably all of the heavy hitters in the AA store..... Stay Frosty 2 (180+ 1st run), Halo 2600 (150 copies 1st run), Syncart, Lady Bug (LE- 1st run), Space Rocks, Medieval Mayhem, Zippy..... (definitely known 100 copies: Another Adventure hack, Boulder Dash, FPF 2017 hack, Lasercade, L.E.M.) Also alot of repros and prototypes were printed in 100+ copies too: Extra Terrestrials repro, Actionauts proto, Bugs Bunny proto, Combat Two proto, Looping proto, RealSports Basketball proto, Snow White proto AA store has a live best sellers list at: https://atariage.com/store/index.php?l=product_list&c=bestsellers but Al doesn't give out actual numbers. Hope this info helps you out. I wouldn't do 100 copies to start out. Average is 10-30 copies. You can look at my comprehensive Atari 2600 homebrew list and do a search (Ctrl + F) and see the "xx copies" of said titles. The link is https://1drv.ms/x/s!ArXu52QZivTrgVbQayev1Wc1QprN

    Was the Atari 2600 Video Touch Pad a mistake?

    I got mine brand new for $4.99 from Zayre's back after Christmas 1986. I still wish I hadn't thrown away all of those Atari cartridge boxes! I would like to see some homebrews developed for it and the CBS Booster Grip too!!!
  12. I just found out that Gamestop has Wii SD cards (1GB & 2GB) for $.99 each - and several of them around where I live!! I just bought 2 2GB card's today for $2.13 with tax! I just had to format each (Fat32), create the folder "Game" and copy and paste the ROM's into that folder and it worked like a charm. One card has my 1001 working ROM pack loaded on it and the other has the newer ROM's since my last release. Here's: the links for the SD cards at GS: https://www.gamestop.com/accessories/wii-dsi-memory-sd-20gb/74306 https://www.gamestop.com/accessories/wii-dsi-memory-sd-10gb/74305
  13. Scott has "Santa HERO" posted also. Same H.E.R.O. game with Santa rescuing the original miners.
