I decided to make a quick video covering this, since I think it's pretty cool!

I also made sure to give Arenafoot and the site shout-outs!

Besides a woodgrain case, the only other improvement I can think of would be a joystick port so a real joystick or paddles could be used.

Someone will prob be able to mod one in the future for those ports. Along with someone changing the case to woodgrain too.  :atari_2600:  :thumb:

Actually, where WOULD one go about getting an Atari cartridge slot?  Are slots in the style of those used in the Atari line even made?

You have to have either the Atari Flashback 2 or 2+ to mod with a cart slot. AT Games did not make any Atari FB's w/ a cart slot.
