    chas10e got a reaction from Justin in Does Anyone use these Paddle controllers?   
    Heh, I didn't know Astroblast could be played with paddles as well. it's a LOT better that way !!!! I always tried with a joystick .... needless to say much less "joy"

    Yeah paddle games are some of my favorites , a 2'nd set and you can play 4 player Warlords (some reason my nephews like it better than Midevil Mayhem)
    For cleaning the paddles I usually reference "Slowcoders guide" on Atari age https://atariage.com/forums/topic/184296-slowcoders-guide-to-cleaning-up-your-2600/?do=findComment&comment=2316794
    Specifically what console are you playing on ? original hardware or a flashback unit ?

    @RickR Ill test them out when I get home from work. Im pretty comfortable taking things apart. So ill check it out. I wish i had started my Youtube sooner because, ive taken and rebuilt all sorts of consoles and retro items. I recently Modded a Jvc boom box  from 83’ to play blue tooth music from my phone and added a rechargeable internal battery.   Im planning on making an episode over it soon.

    chas10e got a reaction from SecondChance Retro in Yars' Revenge is a great game but might cause seizures   
    Todd Fry's 2600 Pac-Man was quite the technical achievement FOR THE TIME. (and he's still rightfully proud of it) There is a newer 2600 Pac-Man that is both closer to the arcade version & is flicker free. 
    I haven't looked into Defender/Stargate to see if they drew the ship & the missiles at the same time to eliminate flicker.
    I hadn't really ever played WOW

    chas10e got a reaction from HDN in Yars' Revenge is a great game but might cause seizures   
    Yeah I don't think any Atari games came with any seizure- warnings and THIS probably would be a good thread to list them.
    I would think the end of Missile Command may be problematic but isn't a constant part of the game. 
    https://www.epsyhealth.com/seizure-epilepsy-blog/video-games-and-seizure-safety
    I would imagine with some sort of list, someone who codes can hack the game to remove the problematic elements of the game & perhaps replace the effect with something that would equally be a "reward" for defeating the Quotile in the example of Yar's Revenge.

    yeah the reset & game start switch have a wider base with a spring inside, I just happened to have a 4 switch board loose ( I forget why)
    anyways there is prolly a seperate file someone already made for that
    the foil is some kind of shielding and duct work silver tape would prolly do the job
    And yeah they the same switches on a heavy sixer
    imma put a 3d printer on my birthday wish list 'cause I NEED atleast one more thing in my apartment 😉

    The "format" used for posting a score was off by me in placing it at the end of a post as opposed to the top line of the post is a fault

    Yeah there is a muscle memory thing associated with the nudging with the button and you can figger out just about exactly how far you can nudge without tilting. The benefit of how the tiltb-ob work in this game is it "settles" almost instantly the moment you stop moving it :D I would imagine the "lag" has an affect on the ball movement sort of like how people complain about the lag using the Wavebird on the Cube.
    This is what I wear when I'm out playing pinball, The kitty is my friends cat "Marty" who recovered from some serious illness and some costly injections. The "Marty pin" was produced & sold to help others fund the treatment for their kitty's
    The pinball machine pin & the sweatshirt was a gift a couple Christmas's ago from my nieces & nephews :)

    Great video & score, it was rather odd the on the bonus count the first time on real hardware so I suspect you score may have been higher but the "squad challenges" here are just for fun to revisit games from when us old timers were young and to expose the young fellows to these games.
    Another great video, I really liked the super short-plung then getting the extra ball off the slingshot right away! the visit from the cat was hilarious as cats & pinball is an "actual thing"
    Again the "squad challenge" is for fun but for high stakes tournament physical pinball, when possible extra balls are turned off and if an extra ball is earned without the possibility to turn it off after setting up a skill shot it is plunged and hands off so that great players don't marathon the machine.
    So lets get along to posting more scores, I thought @ZilchSr had a great idea with a clock running as he played so I incorporated one in the event I rolled it 😉
