Just got an Atari Video Pinball console.

Recommended Posts

I just got a new addition to the game room this afternoon. This is my first console out of the First Generation. An Atari Video Pinball C-380 cream colored version from 1977. Always wanted one of these and it is so addicting and fun to play. Got it pretty cheap on ebay. Happy to have one of these. :)

yeah I have a brown Atari one. & think it's great

 

I dunno what, if any difference is.

 

I cleaned mine all up so jitter-free paddle & buttons on face don't stick ... I'm convinced the flipper button on side aren't 100% reliable , but mebbe it's just me & the nature of pinball :P ... even simulated gravity sucks :wreck-it-ralph:

Really cool, and it looks like it works well.  Nice pickup!

 

I've been keeping my eye open for an Atari Stunt Cycle, but am too cheap to pay the prices people are asking.  One of these days.....  I'm pretty sure the arcade version of Stunt Cycle was the very first video game I ever played.

GOOD NEWS:  I just won an ebay Stunt Cycle auction!

w00t \o/ :party: \o/ w00t

 

loose or boxt ? power supply included ? (uses standard 2600 supply ;) )

should you need to open 'er up to clean the pot  ...

 

  • left handle grip under warm water a bit to loosen up & remove grip from handlebar ... the handle bar needs to split in halves to get to the potentiometer
  •  
  • make note of the hole the spring is in 
  •  
  • make note of how pot is plugged into board 

have fun :D

One of my ALL TIME favorite units. Whenever I would host a retro night at a local gaming lounge I would always bring that along. It would get laughs at first then the same people laughing would not be able to put it down!!! Miss mine so much. Think I need a beer now. ***walks away sad***
