  1. I edited above post striking out a line, games 2 & 3 are actually "single player games" I will still keep my eye out for the proper blades.
  2. I opened mine up to take a peek and I don't envy you at all. I do have some switch blades that may work out for you but will have to be worked. The hole spacing me be an issue on the longer blades I have. some info can be found here http://www.planetarypinball.com/reference/partsmanuals/WMS_Parts_1974-1975/index.html#/50/ if interested for the parts shoot me a PM & I'll toss 'em in an envelope for ya's
  3. I haven't had the need to completely take apart my Coleco Combat. but I did successfully remove the handles by heating them up with a hair dryer and a LOT of even pressure ( I think I just used the thumb knuckles as fulcrum ) spade connectors for the buttons I am not sure how the spring mechanisms work A great game with another player all hunched-up next to one another. I think game #4 is the robot controlled black tank. You just have to stay out of "The Abyss" which is is beyond the border down bottom where no matter what you do you can't drive out of there. My now 13 yr old nephew likes to hit the reset button before I reach the game winning shot. but if HE is about to acheive the game winning shot we sort of wrestle for the button.
  4. First Congrats to @Scott Stilphen I tried all the extended day & couldn't even reach my previous score & then he sand-bagged in one more to top his own .... nicly done :D @RickR - Jr posted a score as well putting squad players up to 13 for this challenge and was also good to have Ms. @greenween along as well Get well ... don't really wanna ask what happened -BUT- you always tell a great story 🙂 Try it with the trak-ball ... I haven't tried "the paddle" mod yet but prolly make SB5200 much more enjoyable Most importantly ..... what is that console is that real wood ?
  5. Welcome to "The Squad" @Gianna 🙂 I generally hit the launch button right away out of frustration from losing a ball. I did have to leave the game once between balls and the screen went in color-shift mode but hitting the launch button picked the game up from where I left off. It's easy to burn through 5 balls in this game ... even though they are square.
  6. Yeah when you go around the screen 6 times & the ball won't hit it then ya gatta risk using the bottom paddle to try & get a different loop.
  7. 3369 \o/ You could first super glue them bits in to get the "D" back then fill outer cavities with hot-melt glue (or play-doh or epoxy
  8. 2459 A thing I was curious about happened this game .... cleared a screen with 2 balls in play, hoping one would be trapped above the bricks (that wouldn't have happened in this instance anyways) ... when the bricks reset one of the 2 balls I had in play got disappeared. So I guess no more than 3 balls on the screen at one time.
  9. 1964 New personal best I suppose, I started screwing up by looking at my score during play 🙄 .... just hitting one point blocks at the time made it even worse I was inspired by trying to break the 2k mark ..... great score @greenween
  10. From what I recall , the ball in the beginning is always blue & the captive balls are always brown even in MULTIBALL !!! To bad you can't shoot jackpots :P
  11. Wow you really got the jitter ouuta them paddles -or- is that score WITH the jitter :P Is that a real nintendo TV ? oh nvm I see the Sony label Trinitron I'd imagine 😉
  12. 1,469 After selecting game #5, if you find don't like the tone of the ball hits, hit the reset button again (and again) til you find a tone you like.

    Price Tag Thread

    what a great thread idea .... just the first couple I thought might have old price tags Kay-Bee Toys in the mall was a favorite of mine when I was younger .... I wasn't buying Atari games at the time though ... wished I did I never heard of "Gold Circle" but looks like they had some good prices
  14. Congets @RickR ! I hadn't played many INTV games, never played "Shark shark" so I can't compare the two. Yeah "Go Fish" seemed to start slow waiting in the weeds for some morsel to swim by last night I had troubles with the electric eels and didn't improve my score 😬 just when I thought things were going good too Oh well ... there's always the next squad challenge
  15. took this pic awhile ago ...figgered it'd make good wall paper every once inawhile they will fall off the little ledger I have there I look for 'em at thrifts open 'em up the instructions usually have a parts list so I'll take the time too see if it's complete I try and find stuff from the earliest patent of the game (like first editions I guess) ... IMHO ... if it looks old its pretty cool ... my family doesn't alway agree ... I still haven't played my 1934 Monopoly yet ;"( for family gatherings I usually take 4 or 5 games with me. they also have favorites of their own. some winners I brought were "The Amazing Race", "Score Four", "Trouble", "Dynamite Shack" ... they always have a "scabble-off" "Settlers of Catan" ( or just Catan ) is wildly popular the card games like D&D ain't my thing I would like to learn how to play "Go" I have one with the stones & all .... one of these days I guess
  16. I think extended version was made only because people were maxing out the score and I think perhaps it doesn't revert back to zero. I am guessing the extra digit capabilities makes the ROM size much larger than the origonal 2k I dunno the file size of what's on my cart ok the AA store says the filesize is 8k .... NOW the question is .... what's that 2k file that's on your Harmony :P I'm ok with the 1368 score just put an asterix beside it 😉
  17. where did all them extra zero's come from ? ( I hope ya' don't need 'em :P )
  18. 831 wow a shark came outta nowhere while I was trapped between 2 long fishes ... I was a pretty tasty treat for him I have been starting with the difficulty on "B" or beginner as a tiny fish .... I dunno what Default is on Stella but curious to know
  19. 273 I do happen to have the cart & manual game-play: "eat or be eaten" eat fish your size or smaller .... your fish will grow @ 5; 19; 55 & 132 on novice setting avoid jellyfish , electric eels & sharks I am going with this image thinking I had more than one life, hitting the button after death starts a new screen (new score)
  20. from what I understand: the "kill screen" on dedicated arcade games come from the memory on the PCB getting full to a place where the game crashes. in emulation on modern hardware negates that problem. I could be wrong though, if I make it to the 3'rd board on DK I have had one of the best games in my whole life.
  21. Had a terrific Thanksgiving day. Brought the "go-bag" in upstairs to one of the gaming areas of my nieces known as "The schoolroom". Nephew had to get a multi-tap outlet ...yada-de-ya. First cart he wanted to play was "Space Invaders" so I went to level "33" co-operative 2 player mode then progressed up through the variations from there til we got to invisible, wiggly barricades, with doubled & fast wiggly enemy fire. He's been getting into Looney Tunes so I brought "Taz" & had some good rounds of that. later in the evening he brought me a Spiderman PnP he found while cleaning the basement or something that needed the battery tray cleaned. So we used ""SCIENCE"" white vineger & q-tips away from all the food washing hands afterwards. had to steal batteries outta the xb360 controllers played some boardgames, food, movie theater (Joker) And now on to the portion we call "Thanks-feasting" next 3 days of leftovers more boardgames, videogames ping-pong, Foosball
  22. I'm thankful for this thread staring my day. (with a cuppa coffee :D ) I'm thankful for the hobbies I have and the people I have to share them with. The next 4 days I'll be with family (nieces & nephews) & one of the things I'll have is an Atari I keep in my "go-bag" Have a Happy Thanksgiving everybody

    eBay Finds

    Yeah that appears to be the original one and very cool, but yeah I was going to recommend using an alliterative power supply like the Genny Model 1 or or something exactly-similar. thanks for the pic even though most everything is written in Japaneses I can tell what the input voltage (100VAC) and output voltage (10VDC) and that the center tip is negative there is also the Amp rating (860mA) heres a pic of a couple OEM Sega power supplies: Both input is 120VAC the output is different one each of them, (9VDC & 10VDC), both center tip negative and the amp rating is 1.2A (or1200mA) so they will "handle the load" this thing in the yellow box may work as well: it is rated at 850mA as well
