I finnaly got past the third elevators in Donkey Kong last night! I missed the 100,000 point mark by a lousy 2,000 points! All I had to do was complete the next level and I would have my 100,000 points! Oh well, must have been too exicited :-)
Updated my 2600 collection again. I am now up to 388 carts, I also picked up quite a few for my Vic-20 and C64.
If you are interested in trading, please let me know. I will also trade across platforms. Such as Vic -> 2600, or 2600 -> Vic, etc... If you just want to get rid of your carts, I'll pay for shipping :-) @EMAIL@ me if you are interested.
I tried to clarify my trading policy for the 2600 carts a bit. I'm flexible in this area. I've tried getting some carts via eBay, and have managed to get a couple lots, but the price per cart is too much. If you frequent eBay for carts, I say stop unless it is truly a rare game or you're getting a good deal, which after shipping you're probably not.
Changed the speakers on my Gyruss. One was a 4" and the other was a 6" mounted to the side of the game. Factory speakers are 5 1/4". I went and picked up two from Radio Shack for $6 each and installed them. The game sounds a whole lot better now.
The restorations have slowed down for now due to the heat. Restorations will probably pick up again in October or November when I can actually go back out into the garage. :-)
I added an Atari 2600 Links category and I am looking for Atari 2600 Links, if you have them, please submitt them.
