    Good to know, thanks!  I just tried it out with fresh batteries and it work just fine. 

    I also checked, and that's a standard Atlantis cart -- not Atlantis II

    A very good day yesterday.  I found a bunch of good stuff as seen below.

     
    Check out this incredible Pac Man record I found.  Copyright is 1980.  I mostly bought it just for the artwork on the sleeve.  Overall, in poor condition, but it will look nice on my game room shelf.


     
    The Imagic games were a really lucky find, as I had those two games' boxes in very bad shape and with no plastic insert.  So I created my own cardboard inserts and cleaned them up as best I could.  And now I've got 5 boxed Imagic titles.

    Goodwill came through again for me today. Awesome find. Sadly it's missing the game. If anyone has the game and case I'd be interested in maybe doing a trade. I've got plenty of stuff

    You did great @Arenafoot! This overlap between Homebrew Forum and 2600 Form etc. has been a paradox that we've been trying to sort out for a while and make a change. When I put the site together I created the Homebrew Forum thinking this would be THE place where people go to talk about the Homebrew scene. A lot of people post to the 2600 Forum instead, (or whatever forum the system is that the homebrew is for.) I've considered making the Homebrew Forum exclusively for development, but that seems just as confusing. Your posts are fine either way, just needed to merge two great conversations into one.

    I guess I could have put it in the Atari 2600 forum instead of the homebrew forum, though its a prototype and not a homebrew. I'm just used to covering homebrews and hacks. 😉

    Hoping someone hacks it, after they fix it for the Harmony carts.

    The original XBOX made it, too.  Two great consoles that deserve it.  One invented the game industry, the other changed the rules.  Pretty cool.

    If anyone is interested, here's this weekend's three scheduled game times:
    May 25 2pm PST / 5pm EST/ 9pm GMT
    May 26 7pm PST/  10pm EST/ (May 27) 2am GMT
    May 27 6am PST / 9am EST / 1pm GMT
    Unusually, I ended up getting the entire weekend off work, so I should be able to attend any or all of these!

    So I was in the game and I spoke with the developer (his player name is "ro"). Apparently the time shown for the scheduled games is adjusted automatically for your time-zone.

    Someone's scheduled some games for this weekend, but they didn't say which time-zone. I may check in on occasion if I have time.

    There was as many as 4 of us in the lobby when they put the game up a few hours ago, but now I think we might need to schedule a game if we want to find other players.

    I don't know why I never noticed this before.  I was adding a manual to my Atari Bowling box and noticed something kind of cool.  Whoever had this box before me wrote down their high scores on the top flap!  The box is pretty beat up, but I think these scores make it pretty neat.

    Arenafoot reacted to RickR in Atari Flashback 9 is Awesome   
    I thought I'd do a quick write up on the Atari Flashback 9, which has two features that make it VERY worthwhile.
    It has an SD card slot (to load any game file you like) It has HDMI output (razor sharp video on a flatscreen TV) These two features work really nicely.  I am getting great output on my flatscreen (my pictures don't do it justice).  And we have all been clamoring for a 2600 that uses an SD card slot.  It does use emulation, but I think it's really well done.  I haven't noticed any sound or graphics glitches. 
    I want to thank Arenafoot for his flashback portable gamepack (available from the AtariAge forums), as that's what I used on mine.  There is one small quirk I should mention.  The Flashback 9 won't load a file if there is a space in the filename.  I used a batch file renamer program to remove spaces from all of the files in Arenafoot's pack.  And BOOM, they all work. 
    I bought mine used on ebay.  I think you can get them new for $60 or so on Amazon.  IMO, avoid the "Gold" version.  It comes with "wireless" controllers and I don't like the lag those introduce, plus they have to be aimed at the console.  
    This product is made by atgames.  In this case (and also with the portable), they deserve a lot of credit and praise.  I really feel that this is an outstanding product. 
    Let me know if you have any questions or need help in any way.
