Just a quick try until I can figure out a comfortable way to play with two sticks...

 

Is there a way to lock your fire in 1 stick mode? (Like llamatron, etc) 

 

If not then 1 stick mode sucks lol

Wow it is amazing INDEED!

 

Great setup!

 

Don't you miss the tube television? I find most retro games so much better on a tube TV. The only downside is the space that such a tv consumes...

 

But awesome your setup! So great.

Thanks guys!

 

Yeah, I have a few CRT's in the basement that I still use for old games, etc..

 

This picture is of my bedroom which I keep a little more minimalist for my own sanity and since my Wife is not crazy about it (Hey, she knew what she was getting into before we got married) I had a CRT at one time hooked up in the bedroom next to the flat screen but it looked too cluttered so I took it out.

 

I will say this is an older flat screen so the resolution isn't as good as newer ones (which I prefer for old games haha)

 

I might put a nice 1702 monitor in my room again though, I really regret selling that one!!

I used strong double stick tape and fastened my controllers to a trapper keeper haha. This game plays soooo much better with twin sticks!

I'm not super happy with my controller configuration but it will do for now :) Might ne time to invest in one of those fancy twin sticks...

Nice score!

 

Similar controller solution as mine but used stick on velcro straps on a left over shelf.    I am planning to build a wood box from left over shelfing to replicate the Atari provided solution but just have not had the time.

one of those games where I see the little people needing rescuing when I close me eyes - overwhelms you, their little cries like in DropZone just tug at your emotions! Great game :thumbsup: Another week to go will start up the R4 poll next...

Oh nice!! I missed DK Jr (although my score probably puts me in last place anyways haha) 

 

(22,100)

I didn't grow up with atari computers (was a commodore kid) and am not very familiar with really any of the games, ports outside of this high score club...

 

So far I have this to say...

 

Ms Pac - Great! I really liked this version.

 

Robotron - very smooth, might actually be my favorite (old school) home version

 

Donkey Kong Jr- bah, meh, not crazy about this one. 😄

Tried with two sticks. I think with a bit more practice I could get a much higher score with a 2-stick setup

 

1-stick 465875

2-sticks 411625

just 2 sticks on the desktop or have you been inventive?

 

I've pondered on a box for my 2 (modern and not as good) comp pros but for now I'm one stick and with some cray a*sed charging after the brains improved to  299,250 just missed the extra life :mad: :)
