Title: The last thing bought ....
Post by: manopac on November 13, 2009, 02:20:42 PM
thought this would make a nice topic - share what the last thing was you bought ... and come back every time you buy something :-)

I'll kick it off with my last two:

Nimble Numbers Ned:
http://cgi.ebay.at/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200384288230&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT
"includes Wizardry Book" - guess what it didn't include :)

C64:

realised I didn't have a working one ... and 15? is not too much for this package ...

I just bought eggs, bacon, chips & beans. This was my healthy response to my previous purchase, which was participation in a few rounds of lager in the pub last night. I can also tell you my next purchase, which will be a curry this evening (Karahi Hounslow http://www.karahiexpress.com/), and I'm told more beer but I'm going to try and avoid that. This day will not be on my healthy day list, I think because it is Friday 13th.

On the retro front though, I'm quite happy to have taken delivery yesterday of PAPERBOX Radiolas 2, 12 & 13:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280414450457
I believe I'm only looking for 4, 9, 10 & 11 now.

I also got the package from Nico yesterday, that had 3 shipping boxes, the two 'proto' listings and the 59 multicart, so I should be doing a website update shortly. I actually worked from home for 2 days waiting for these deliveries.

I was going to bid on that Laser, but I got stuck doing something else.

Unfortunately not really.  :(
Yes, I've got Restaurant and Des Chiffres et des Lettres, and I'm very happy about that, but I'm still missing 6 Jopac games: Armada, Magibrick, Acrobats, Mith & Math, Monster, Stadium.

Couldn't you find a cheaper one?


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: grgh on November 17, 2009, 05:54:57 PM
Well there has been one sitting on BIN for some time now at US$500, but then this one even had the shipping box which was a little feature I really liked and so thought it was worth the extra bit.

Having said that, I don't think I've seen a cheaper one anyway although its not something I watch for.


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: Rene_G7400 on November 18, 2009, 09:27:00 AM
For (complete) Odyssey consoles without the extra shipping box, $100 is a more normal price.


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: Turtle on November 18, 2009, 10:20:48 AM
i payed 260$ for my export version of odyssey, but that one is farly rare. It was with box and manual no shipping box.


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: grgh on November 18, 2009, 10:59:36 AM
Three people went over $300 (maybe more depending on when they placed a bid), and at least six people were prepared to pay over $100.

I guess this one must be 'best in class', proper mint with all the trimmings  ;D


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....

Hope to have a neogeo AES someday. Love metal slug.


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: manopac on December 01, 2009, 10:25:08 PM
I used to have an AES but sold it ... I found it just too expensive, especially for the games I was interested in (Metal Slug Series and the shooters) - decided to by an MVS board instead and am colleting the MVS carts I want now :-)

Nice!  :)

Looks like there have been made more prototype carts of Powerlords than official releases.....


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: manopac on December 02, 2009, 10:10:24 AM
that might be true :-)

I guess a complete good condition copy of Power Lords would fetch more than the prototype cart, wouldn't it ?


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: grgh on December 02, 2009, 02:34:33 PM
I've been thinking that, ANOTHER Powerlords proto ended yesterday, someone must have had a whole set of them. I think that must been at least 5 I've seen now.

No, there are 6 other games in similar boxes which I've already got, but these 4 are extremely rare.

hm ... shouldn't be a new game in the sense of really new ... as far as I know the carts for the Odyssey are basically connections on the main system, so all possible game are already built into the system and are just "unlocked" by the carts ... still a nice thing with the new overlays and everything ... should really get myself an Odyssey as well :-)


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: Rene_G7400 on December 06, 2009, 11:56:19 PM
You could make a new Odyssey game if you would make a cartridge with additional hardware on it.

For this release he has made copies of cartridge number 11. This is a never released cart, but the connections of it are documented in the Odyssey Service Manual.

Well, the previous owner thought there were no Plus graphics, but he was wrong!  ;D

Two versions are only 4k, so these don't have Plus graphics, but the game from November 12, 1982 is 8k (with 2 Eproms and a special PCB), so I've taken a good look at the disassembly of the dump. This version DOES have Plus graphics, but apparently the game is based on an early version of the Odyssey3 BIOS, since the CALLs to the Plus graphics routines have an offset of 1 or 2 bytes. After adjusting these CALLs, the Plus graphics became visible. They are the same as the European version of Killer Bees (Videopac 52+), so the yellow background with the large bees and honeycombs, and not the red/blue background of the Odyssey3 promotion video.

Today I got a complete Powerlords which completes my O2 videopac collection.
Also in the box was a boxed Odyssey2 hand controller.


There was also a boxed Odyssey2 console and another 10 Odyssey2 games. It's likely I'll be getting rid of a few Odyssey2 videopacs again as I have two boxes full of extras now.

I also made some purchases from Nico this week, more on that soon...

I'm also hovering over the 'buy' button on play.com while the wife is away for HD versions of:
 - Underworld 1-3 Box Set
 - Starship Troopers Box Set (3 Discs)
 - Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series 1 - 5 Limited Edition Box Set (20 Discs)

They're all in my shopping basket, just not got the time right now to commit to watching them all.

Did see some software for both systems. Also a lot of cd-i hardware, but little software. A few g7000 and g7400 systems. Enough software, but to high priced.

Also nice to see a lot of lynx and jaguar software.
I managed to buy only a few games ;)

Yeah, I got a really good deal on 3DO games (I'm on a budget, but a good deal is a good deal).

As for the box, I guess we're talking about the shipping box. Either way, I'll get photos of the box, and the game box.

P.S. Anyone interested in a 'mint' Quest for the Rings?  :)

YOu know, I forgot all the Virtual Games I've gotten over the years. I should list those too (when I get the list in order - I'm working on it - part of my game database).

And by Viritual, I mean 'payed for' games, like on the Wii, Xbox 360, and the like.

funny ... I just bought a Harmony cart as well :-) and am looking for an Amiga 600 or 1200 ...

other than that I recently bought:

various Atari 8 bit Infocom games (only missing Planetfall in the gray box and Plundered Hearts now - anyone ?)
USB-2-Serial to finally get my RAM-Cart running on my Windows 7 laptop again ...
and
Atlantis (Odyssey2 sealed)
Videopac 12 (matt box)

which almost finishes my US and European Collections now ... only the Computer Intro manual and the Nimble Numbers Ned Math Wizardry Book are missing now ... then I only have to hunt down the impossible to find ones - Des Chiffres des lettres and Restaurant ...

Since i've been on holiday for a week, here's the stuff i got from queens-day this year. Not much:
A GBA sp mario edition with power adapter,
Mario vs Donkey kong gba (great game, finished it on holiday),
Worms armagedon gbc,
Donkey kong country gbc,
Rayman's 10th anniversary gba,
Fifa football 2004 gba,
Total soccer 2002 gba,
The sims bustin' out gba,
Banjo-Kazooie crunty's revenge gba,
The kid who sold it asked 17 euro for it, gave him 20.

I also bought a complete world cup golf for the cd-i, and alien gate for the cd-i, for 2 euro total.

Just missed out on a 4 euro gbc with zelda oracle of seasons :-( if i was just 4 meters before this old guy i would have had it. And i really want this game since i got zelda oracle of ages already.
Bought a big truck for my son to play with outside.
Didn't have much more time since we went on holiday that afternoon.

It surprised me how many gamecubes there where on sale. I saw more of them and the original xbox, then i did see ps2's or gbc/gba.
I almost thought i found the holy grail, when i walked into a lane and noticed 3 videopacs, and a lot of games. Hoping to find a 58, 59 or 60, but unlucky there weren't any. The guy selling them said i should buy Munchkin since it was a rare game according to him, while he was trying to hide the other 4 or so copies of that game.
What a .... thinking i would buy that, RARE, ha.  ;)

We sold a lot, but no videopac's. Lots of people responded sharing memories and showing them to their kids saying, "see thats the X-Box from when daddy was a kid". But sentiment wasn't strong enough to boost the sales haha.

My latest additions are a 7000 (not working according to seller) and a 7400 (not working also...) But since I have a board from a 7000 (working) and a board of a 7400 (working) it should complete my collection.. And of course the obligatory Videopac A cartridge...

a C7010 from marktplaats.. Unfortunately it was not functioning..
But after some study the defect was in the cartridge and not in the external CPU board.
It took me quite some while to get the CPU box open though....
Only to find out that there was no LE signal (pin11) coming from the cartridge.
The 74LS32 was broken and after I replaced it with a 'new' one there was communication again between the cartridge and the CPU box. So now I have a working C7010  !

I guess Philips had a special tool for it..

Once disassembled I found you can open it with a rather broad flatbed screwdriver put in from the back and then carefully twisting it until both interlocks release. If you put some pulling force on the front you can hear them slide away with a click.
But as always: stop a quarter turn before breaking point....

I used the Google translator for the text above:

It's May, the month of the Odyssey launch here in Brazil. 25 years ago was a dream start. One night (it was between two and three in the morning) in January or February 1986, unfortunately you need not know the exact day of this event, my father entered the room with that huge box. An unforgettable night. Inside the box, the dream Odyssey, manual and cartridge "Formula 1, Interlagos and Cryptologic." The cartridge would start a long search. Also there was the magazine Odyssey Adventure number 7, "on the cover releases this month:" The Secret of the Pharaoh "and" The Cat and Mouse ", I could never imagine that those are the two biggest nightmares for collectors (I will not Mission Impossible mention, as its name says it all). And so it began. Whenever he could buy new games, until one day the games disappeared from the shops and the dream ended. I had managed 35 rounds. Then came the Internet rekindling the old dream, she also found two sets of whom had never heard of: "Bombing Submarine / Shooting Target" and "telegraph" respectively the 3rd and 4th cartridges more difficult to achieve by completing the that I eventually named "The Big Four." And earlier, the collection grew, then you discover that the problem of the whole Brazilian collector begins after 50 and if you are persistent enough, will reach 54 cartridges and perhaps discover the truth about the cartridges numbered AV 946X. In 11 or twelve years visiting the Free Market every 10 minutes just saw them show up every 4 or 5 times (The Big Four). Lately, I realized that this obsession was being harmful to me, honestly I was tired of all this. I could not watch TV looking for items on eBay. Had headaches, could not sleep if there was a special item for auction. Was frustrated that he paid for something and not received, if any item that was following disappeared before the end of the auction. In fact, I know many people who give up their collections because of the rarity and high prices of these items. Last night, as a child and was so excited about 25 years ago, I even dream about the guys from CSI, dressed as postman bringing my order. Today, 5 / 5 (5 x 5 = 25 years of waiting), not as expected (considering I did not get some manuals). My "The Cat and the Mouse" has arrived! I think I want to take a break in all this ... but this sounds like some kind of a curse ...

I?ll post pics and tell about you about the few difereces.

First pic, is the cart itself. It came with it?s index and original box with 101 as serial number, a very low number compared to the most common games I have (games like Timelord, Turtles, Munchkin etc are easily find with serial numbers upper than 50.000). It don?t have the manual, but I was already made a cover ot it some time ago. The second pic I noticed is possible to choose diferent skills for each player, I?ll have more time to test it on saturday. The pic 3 shows another diference: the word "Name". Pic 4 and 5: Unlike the others roms, the name and player are not showed at the same time and the score is centered. At least, the non human players are automatically named "Odyssey"

@gertk - nice, I'm tempted by the VG5000 myself since it has so many similarities to the videopac with the games.

@ Rafael - I like the story  :D

I have 46 Brazilian videopacs, and I am waiting for 2 in the post. Now you tell me the worst is to come after 50  :o

Hi George, I checked your brazilian collection and you have good ones, like Bacar?, Ca?a-N?queis, Guerra de Nervos and Criatividade, this one is certainly between the 10 most dificullty. To collect br carts is needed patienty, luck and sometimes is needed to be ready to pay a lot of money in some games. The good thing is that here is very few hardcore collectors, so eg. I think all harddie fans already get his copies of "Malabarista" and "Desafio Chines", well, it?s not easy to find, but unless the next copies will be more free...Keep the faith.


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: Rene_G7400 on May 07, 2011, 10:53:59 PM
... "Malabarista" and "Desafio Chines"...

Do you mean that these two games are less hard to find than the 4 other 946X games?


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: Rafael on May 07, 2011, 11:52:56 PM
... "Malabarista" and "Desafio Chines"...

Do you mean that these two games are less hard to find than the 4 other  games?


How I said before, since I started to dig the Internet (more than 10 years) I saw the "Big Four" 4 times each, maybe 5 for Telegrafista. Naturally I don?t check the bidding sites all the time, but we ever knew if someone found a mega rare item. About Desafio Chines, it appearead around 6-7 times and 8-10 to Malabarista. We also know the collectors and normally, when they get some of the 946X, are one of this two. I was the 3rd to complete the Phlips collection. The first guy waited long time to get one "9464", the second to complete its collection get as last two carts "9464" and "9469". Finally, how you know the last one was "9469" but for mine "9464" it was the very expensive item for my collection. Actually, how I know, there?s other 2 guys waiting carts to complete their collection, one is waiting for "9469" the other is waiting the "9464". The other problems are that no one have a complete collection with all manuals, the games that apperead on ML include loose games. Eg, despite the "9461" apperead 4 times on ML, only one time it had manual. So by observation and information seems that "Segredo" and "O Gato" are the top impossible games "Bombardeio" and "Telegrafista" are respectively 3rd and 4th, while "Desafio" and "Malabarista" 5th and 6th.

Not videopac related, but from the same era, a 6 euro vectrex in pristine condition, with 2x minestorm overlay, 1x boxed spike with manual and overlay, 1x boxed hyperchase with manual and overlay, 1x boxed Bezerk with overlay and 1x boxed soccer with overlay. The boxes are in bad shape, but the overlays are fine. The only thing i had to do, was to fix a joystick spring, because that was broken. The unit is even very quiet, without any modifications.
And Janzl i found this unit i a second hand store in Nijmegen  >:D .

At Apeldoorn one guy wanted 90 Euro's for a Vectrex in absolute deplorable state, all emblems had come off, joystick was worn out, no screen mask etc... A few stands away they were sold in good condition for 50...

I recently saw a G7000 on ebay UK for the equivalent of about ?100, no games and no box, which some will know I consider to have zero value. He had listed it as free shipping on "make me an offer", so I offered him the equivalent of about ?5 on the condition the shipping remained free. He declined...

Yes, the sellers at the retrofairs... some are a bit insane with their prices. And others are very insane with their prices. They still use the prices from the golden age of VGames collecting. But those prices and those days are mostly gone...

I've stopped collection for the VP at the moment becuase there is hardly anything worth buying!! I think I may try and finish off my USA o2 collection as this is nearly finished!!

You have a lot of luck, Andy. Games likes this are really really to find. Only a time a prototype appeared on "Mercado Livre" (it?s brazilian Ebay). I was planning to buy it, but I sleeped and just wake 2 minutes after auction ending :'(. It was "Bal?o Travesso" (Looney Baloon).

No they look nothing like the photograph that you have posted. I just have a cartridge with a simple hand written label over the front and then when you look in the cartridge case there is an eprom with a hand written label in Spanish with the games name. I think the photograph that you posted is simply a copy not an actual prototype.

Congratulations on your latest finds. But caution!! We need some photographs of whats inside of the carts and also dates from the EPROMS to be able to tell you if you have test carts, and a version of 45+. It may also be that your "red" carts are simply nothing more than original bog standard carts just painted red, again we need photo's. Personally, if you've managed to find some new stuff I'm very happy for you, it seems like the videopac communiy has stagnated if you ask me.

The prototypes i have seen never had a metal shield over the rom. Most likely there will be a normal rom underneath the shield, not a eprom, what most prototype seem to have.
It looks like somebody was a bit bored an painted the carts.

TEMOIN PH (Philips) + RA (Radiola) + EXP (??) No 8
26.10.1979 was the official date release in Europe?

I've also 2 PHILIPS common carts 8 & 22 with the little label on back PDSF RA 08 & PDSF RA 22.

...and 2 boxes SERVICE S.A. 4811 693 97091 with 2 new joystick inside without wires.

The test cartridge is quite interesting, it would not be a multi cart with just 8k and it seems quite old too. The displays look like  hex led displays with inbuilt decoder/latches. If possible I would like to have a peek at the rom code and some higher resolution photos of front and back.

Also the numbers on the other test cartridges seem to be written on later (with a felttip pen).

Some things in this list look familiar and are probably the same as the testcart that Bas has released, but Philips has added stuff for testing the G7400 Plus graphics. The display at the right probably displays the testnumber just like the single digit display of the other testcart.

Those are nice displays, much prettier than the basic 7-segment types even though they are not fully 'graphic' like the ones Texas Instruments used for example on the SR60  :D

I bought Conquest of the World from a trader on Atariage a couple weeks ago.  Haven't played it yet, but it looks great and completes my set of the three boardgames.

Before that, I bought the manual to Computer Intro, which makes Type & Tell the only game I have that's not CIB (other than my Japanese Freedom Fighters that doesn't have the Japanese-language manual).

Does that include the additional booklets for Sid the Spellbinder and Nimble Numbers Ned?
I know the Computer Intro manual can be difficult to find!

I don't actually have Sid or Ned yet -- I've got about 20 games at this point, plus the multicart which accommodates most of my needs.  Sid is on my "someday" list since it's not fully implemented on the multicart.  I bought the Computer Intro manual from tradengames.com for three bucks IIRC, which I thought was a pretty good deal!

This week I received this wonderful gift from my friend Marcus Garrett, who in addition to a passion for video games is a great historian of them. The book "1983: The Year Of Video Games in Brazil" is a real journey in time and result of a great research work, it gives details that even I, a huge fan of Odyssey unknown, as the first presentation of the console to press, as well as its launch price (now I know why I took so long to get mine). Of course, that the book speaks not only of the Odyssey, after a brief introduction, the consoles are presented, probably in order of relevance: Atari, Odyssey, Intellivision and Colecovision clones, each island has its own chapter, all described with total impartiality. Here?s some pics:

Do you already have a complete Radiola+ collection?


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....

Yes Radiola complete.
Except if 48, 57 & 60 exist.


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: dronspa on December 11, 2011, 05:45:08 PM
I also never saw 48, 57 and 60.

I'm still looking for 55 and 59...  :'(


And Marc... how do you prove that unbranded plus are made by Radiola?
I remember reading you somewhere in a post, but we can all finally agree that unbranded plus games are the "HG" Radiola plus games?


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: VideopacBelgium on December 11, 2011, 06:46:26 PM
This is the proof that Unbranded+ are Radiola.


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: dronspa on December 11, 2011, 09:30:05 PM
Wow, great find!  :o

That will confirm that Radiola made plus games!  ;)

So the only games unconfirmed are 48, 57 and 60, isn't it?


And what about 41, 42 and 46? I remember someone who got 41 or 42 also unbranded. Maybe also made by Radiola?


Radiola Rarity list will need an update!


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: VideopacBelgium on December 12, 2011, 12:25:47 AM
Yes,
Radiola games unconfirmed are 46, 48, 57 and 60.
Unbranded 41 & 42 are Radiola.
The other french brand SCHNEIDER has never released VP games.

Yes grgh, you're right.
Unbranded 58 was my last find to complete my Radiola collection.
This game without Philips logo was on your website since some months as "french videopac".
However #48, 57 & 60 were never saw unbranded. Backgammon exists in 4 branded Philips versions.
The proof that Unbranded+ are Radiola+ is there however up to now any update of the lists was did.

Oh-oh, those 41 and 42 looks great!!  :o
Almost sealed?

Have you started collecting paperbox Radiola? Those are hard to find!
At this time are unconfirmed paperbox Radiola 4, 11, 15 and 17.

So, George, are your Radiola collection complete?  ;)
I'm still looking for 43.. but also 55 and 59.
Maybe Marc is the first to complete a Radiola collection?  ;D


When my updated new site will be on, sure that I will include the "french plus" section into "Radiola" section.


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: grgh on December 12, 2011, 09:29:35 PM
Yes I have all the standard Radiolas.

I have paperbox Radiola 15, so you can confirm that one:
http://www.videopac.com/pboxrad.html
I still need 4, 9, 10 & 11.
Oh and 17 if that exists!

I'm after unbadged plus versions of:
22, 38, 56 & 57.
Oh and 48 & 60 of course if they exist!

I need to check through what I have, but I believe that I'm also after unbadged versions of:
41, 42, C7010 & C7420.

So I'm looking for quite a few still, but I'm not doing much at the moment.

Magiska is correct ... which explains the sticker ;-) apparently they made an error printing the box and put the sticker there to correct it ... I guess the "variation" is a version where the sticker is missing (maybe came loose in the last 30 years) ...

I remember this not being totally O2/Vp related.

In that light, I went and got a Nintendo 3DS recently. So far, I'm rather impressed with it.

Game for it so far (bought a bunch at once, so slowly going through them):
- Pushmo (great 3D puzzle game)
- 3D Classics: Kirby's Adventure (honestly haven't gotten into this yet)
- Tetris (another one I will be playing soon)
- Catrap (ditto - I'm an adult, one game at a time)
- BurgerTime Deluxe (played just a bit so far, seem rather good so far)
- Mighty Switch Force (just got it, so not played yet)
- Zen Pinball 3D (waiting for this in the US - it is available elsewhere)
- VVVVVV (just got this too - with MSF)
- Qix (old GB game, but still love playing this old game)
- Donkey Kong (94) (this GB game rocks!!!!)

Now if they'd just release some virtual O2/Vp games for it (hey, I can dream, deal with it). :P

That would be a cool project.

Last thing i bought where a set of capacitors to fix a broken cd-i 470. But cheap bastard as i am, noticed an other advert for caps a lot cheaper and bought those on ebay. Guess what, they where wrong. I needed Bi-pol. caps and the one i bought weren't. So just ordered the right ones on ebay, and hopefully i can get it back to work again.


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: gertk on February 14, 2012, 11:16:53 PM
For electrolytic caps I trust only Panasonic nowadays. But... They are expensive.. Still for switchmode power supplies they are absolutely the best. I tried all kinds of 'low ESR' alternatives but they fail often again within a year.

Also often overlooked are the caps in the primary circuit of power supplies, they seem OK since they run at mains frequency only but I experienced many times capacity has declined to such a degree that the controller chip has to work really hard to keep the output voltages within range but creating such odd spikes/waveforms resulting in failure of the secondary caps in short time again..


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: Seob on February 15, 2012, 06:45:51 PM
I wanted to use the same spec and type for the cd-i, because it's for the analog audio section. The old ones where from Nichicon so i order new ones from Nichicon. The first ones i bought where also from Nichicon 100uF 16v but they weren't bi-polarized. Now i bought Nichicon 100uF 16v bi-polarized caps. The only other caps i could find around here where caps with feet on both ends, but the ones i needed had feets on one side only.

says "niet meer leverbaar" "Not in stock anymore" so they be ruled out. The 50v is still in stock. Well would have cost a little less, but i'm oke with it, since i now have the original.
Here is a similar type of cap: http://www.ebay.nl/itm/2-X-NICHICON-MUSE-ES-470uF-35V-BI-POLAR-CAPACITOR-/380251132559?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5888bbd28f#ht_700wt_953 (http://www.ebay.nl/itm/2-X-NICHICON-MUSE-ES-470uF-35V-BI-POLAR-CAPACITOR-/380251132559?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5888bbd28f#ht_700wt_953)

A Siera Samurai. I received it in a plastic box, but am not sure if this is original (Has Siera released card-box games?).

Silver Siera stickers on the picture, Siera manual and a Siera cartridge (Back says it is number PH 15, but on the front a sticker is put on the cartridge, is this done by Siera?).

I do not think Siera did a card boxed version, I've never seen one. The sticker on the cartridge is correct, except that '5' does look strange, don't know why that would have happened.

A mint G7200 manual and a C7010 from marktplaats..


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: gertk on May 14, 2012, 09:20:40 PM
Alas the C7010 does not play chess...

The board inside the box is severely damaged by the electrolyte leaking from all (!) the 150 uF caps...
Not sure if I can fix that... Multiple tracks have been 'eaten' and even the IC sockets are deteriorated.
I removed one to see what was underneath and it is no pretty sight..

Well, ok, what do you expect for 10 Euros  :)  (excl. shipping)

Post by: gertk on May 15, 2012, 06:53:00 PM
Leaking capacitors are quite common nowadays, but also quite common for these low voltage (relatively) high capacity types like these. I recently tried to repair a vintage Sony shortwave pocket receiver but the leaking SMD capacitors had completely destroyed the tracks and created some short circuits which caused the MF transformers to literally burn through even though the powersupply had only limited current capacity. It was really beyond repair.

For the C7010 CPU board I tried cleaning the board today with special PCB cleaner and a glassfiber pencil and the result surprised me somewhat, only a few tracks are really broken, the others came out with quite some copper left so I will try and remove the other sockets, re-apply solder to the tracks, maybe use some fine copper wire to repair them and replace the sockets with some nice new ones. Fingers crossed..  :)


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: gertk on May 15, 2012, 09:42:38 PM
It lives!

4 traces were broken, including the main power line (+5 Volt), it is not the most prettiest repair but it works.
Caps replaced, sockets replaced.

A thing I just noticed is that this C7010 has the large 28 pin  EPROM and my other C7010 has the smaller 24 pin ROM.
Hmm, might be useful to compare the contents...

It's a pong console.  :)
The two "analog" games of my Videopac pong game are based on the ES2201.

The race game consists of two curved vertical lines (the street) and your "car". The curves are moving up or down, so with your controller you have to move your car to the left and right to follow the curves, because the game ends when your car touches a line.
The speed of the curves can be changed, and also the distance between the two lines.

If you want to play this game you don't the ES2212 cart: you can make it from a spare ES2211 cart.  :)
The PCB is the same, and most of the electronic components too.

It took a while to figure this one out but indeed you start the road moving with the button and then you need to keep clear of the lines. It looks very simple but it is not. I assume the picture is more 'stable' on a real CRT set instead of the LCD we tried it on. The picture was quite a bit jumpy but it was also with the Federball cartridge, the ball there had a mind of his own, especially when you touched the button while the ball was moving :)

Hmm, I could alter the width of the road (at least the right hand side moves when you turn the dial) but how is the speed changed ? It already seemed quite fast but that could also be because of the LCD.

I asked because some sites, like http://www.old-computers.com/museum/default.asp?st=2 (http://www.old-computers.com/museum/default.asp?st=2) use to refer to it as a console, same thing with that nice Coleco machine called Telstar Arcade.

Post by: Rene_G7400 on May 30, 2012, 09:58:56 PM
I don't know the exact definition of "console".
You can play different games by inserting cartridges, so therefore I think you could call it a console.
But since it doesn't have a microcontroller or a videochip, the possibilities are limited. You can only have a maximum of three objects on the screen, but the size and shape of these objects can be changed within pretty wide limits.

haven't posted in this thread for a while ... but I am currently in Canada (presenting a paper on new O2EM features I haven't released yet on a conference ;-) )
I used the time here to got to a retro gaming shop and picked up 2 Canadian Odyssey 2 games - the 2 variations I know of (and not many people have talked here on the forum about yet):

First is the first edition of Odyssey2 games sold in Canada: This is the standard US edition sold with an extra slip-cover with French/English lyrics (cartridge and manual are the same as in the US edition) - the back cover of the slip-cover also features the french description of the game (this is the Speedway etc. game)

Second is the "real" canadian version of Odyssey2 games in plastic case: its got its own label on the cartridge, 3 inlays (one 1 page english/french cover, 1 english instructions, 1 french instructions) and a Canadian plastic box that is quite different in plastic texture from the European videopac one - some of the cartridges even have a "Philips electronics" print on them - see pictures ;-)

:D Yeah the keyboard is not in great shape, maybe I will swap it later.

Just for fun I connected the serial busses of the VIC and the C128 (with inbuilt uIEC) 1-to-1 and then try to load a program from the uIEC into the VIC and that works OK. Amazing it works like a true bus system!  :)

The spare C64 keyboard I got works perfectly in the VIC, just replaced some keycaps back because they were worn, cleaned the whole thing up a bit (Quick & Brite), replaced the aluminum foil on the cardboard (it just dropped off after disassembly) with some fresh 'household alu foil' and presto: a nice fully working VIC20

Impressive! Looks really great! I was pondering on getting it, but spent way too much on homebrews lately (Videopac, Atari 2600, Odyssey 1, ...) so that I passed on that one.

11 games to go for a complete Intellivision collection of the original releases. That will be expensive enough, and maybe it will never be complete if I refuse to pay several hundred Euros for a boxed game ...

I know the problem. I am also choosing between homebrews at the moment. Unfortunately Intellivision homebrews tend to be sold out quite fast so I went for this one.

Price was $60,00. But it is a high quality release in every aspect. And I just keep on playing it :)

And that's, after all, the most important factor!

The last non-Videopac homebrew I bought was Boulder Dash for the Atari 2600: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6Ge6G9sT9E

When you watch the video, you would think this game runs on an Atari 800, but it's a VCS!! Andrew Davie and Thomas Jentsch did a great job! It was the most expensive homebrew I ever bought ($80+), bit it's worth it. It comes complete with an extensive colored manual and a high quality box, along with some "gems", and I think they had to pay license fees to First Star Software too, because it's a licensed game.

And how high are the odds you will find a VG5000 power supply at a Commodore club meeting...

That's because the same power supply was used for the Philips MSX VG8010.

Ah, ok. Inside I knew, it was the same as the 7400 supply, only with a few extra components for the -12V
Still it is nice to have a complete set.

That thought has crossed my mind  :) I happen to have acquired a Mustek A3 scanner from the recycle basket at my work. It was abandoned since 'it does not work anymore' (on a new Windows 7/8 system I guess...) It works just fine with Ubuntu after putting the right firmware file in the right place. It should make scanning single and double pages a bit easier.

Yes i do, of all the US-exclusives i am only missing Buster Douglas Boxing. I am trying to get all US games as well (some have different covers) but i think i am about half way (+- 40 to 50 games). For the Brazilian exclusives i dont collect them and only have baku-baku and virtua fighter animation.

It's a MFM drive haven't checked the size. But my guess is 20 Mb indeed, since this was a common size back then.
Have to check if i can use the onboard 8bit ide, hookup to a cf to ide interface.
But first i need to get picture, otherwise it's no use.

The PC10-III supports CGA and Hercules graphics selectable by DIP switch on the back.
Could be it is in Hercules mode now and that has some weird frequencies and different pin assignments on the 9 pin port.

Tried all 3 possible documented positions on the back. Monochrom (mda/hercules), 40 coloms color and 80 coloms color. No luck with component out. 80 colom on composite is ntsc like documented. 40 color and monochrom is pal. Screen switches between ntsc an pal when select mode, but no picture.

Maybe you can install a ISA videocard as last resort but unknown if that is going to work... (and if you are able to find one...)

It's dead. At one point somebody spilled water onto the mainboard, causing massive corrosion in the area of the systems memory and paradise chipset.
Power supply is ok, and maybe the mfm drive is oke, so it can be used as spare parts. The case would look great to do some sort of case mod with. Maybe building a c64 or amiga inside if the mainboard fits. Or a baby pc mainboard.

Thanks!  Like I said, once in a lifetime find for something like this! 

The crazy thing about items like this, is unless a seller is really up to speed on what they are listing, and who best to market it to, then it usually gets listed in a category that a prize hunter might not think to look in.   

I was lucky here, that the seller of this just randomly threw it in the video games category, but I did see where someone had sold the complete set of the Odyssey 2 Adventure Magazines, but had just listed them in the 'Back Issues Magazine' category, and whoever bought them, got them for ultra cheap!.  Definitely pays to think out of the box sometimes, when on the hunt for the obscure!

I checked the tv today, it's 5.5" inch i guess, has uhf vhf and monitor input.
Needs a 12v powersupply not included, don't know if it works, and don't know if it is b/w only. But the price was 10 euro i think it is a bit to expensive.

Got that cart too, but do not have a working ColecoVision to go with it (all 3 of mine are broken). :(
Colecovisions are so flimsy. I quite literally gave a dozen broken colecovision to gertK , hopefully he can turn them into a few workiing ones ;-)

People are always cursing on the Intellivision controllers but I find the Colecovisioncontrollers much worse.

Short question about WESTERN+ :

Was it ever released  ???
I saw no WESTERN+ at videopac.com, so if he has no one, then i think it was never released  ;)

Is it the plus version of Videopac 14? Then i have a good idea:

We must find someone who makes the plus picture and Mark (videopac belgium) released the first new Jopac game ever for our collection  :D


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: VideopacBelgium on August 13, 2013, 10:54:03 PM
You're right,

WESTERN+ was announced (on the Jopac console box & on the SABA poster) but it was never released.
It's the "plus" version of Videopac 14.

I expect to release the 1st Jopac game (of course a grey cart) WESTERN+ in 2014. The "plus" graphics will be created by someone and based from informations Jopac.


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: TomBeck on August 13, 2013, 11:08:26 PM
These are really good news.

Videopac belgium makes that my wishes come true. And this within 5 minutes  :D

But where do you get all the grey carts? I think there will be no 50 or 69 pieces?


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....

I cleaned my 7200 (english rom) inside and out and indeed also the button would not stay in anymore but, left it, i don't use it and it's in the display already.

Also maybe there is some risk in using these models with tv too long?
i don't know... but the Voltages in Holland gradually went from 220Volts to now, almost 240Volts in Holland.

i don't know... but the Volatges in Holland gradually went from 220Volts to now, almost 240Volts in Holland.

Not really a problem since the power supply is a switch-mode type. The output voltages are regulated by a feedback system. The smoothing capacitors at the primary side are rated for 385 Volt which is nowadays maybe a bit on the low side. Since 2004 the voltage in Europe is standardized at 230 Volts AC which results in a rectified and smoothed maximum of 230 x 1.414  = 325 Volts still within safety limits.
When devices have not been switched on for many years I always put a lightbulb in series with the primary power supply, this will limit the inrush current and voltage too (depending on the wattage of the bulb). For Videopac stuff I use a 60 Watt bulb. An old trick but it saved many fuses and other parts.

Just a word on the powerswitch: if it is not functioning properly, please bypass it or remove it. A non functioning switch has also an unknown contact force and can be a fire hazard. (Seen several TV sets, mainly Philips, with very bad burnmarks around the switch, some even shortcircuited fully)





Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: Define on November 20, 2013, 04:08:31 PM
Thanks, i don't go as far as the lightbulb trick but the 7200 i don't use now, it worked fine after intensive cleaning
The power button doesn't stay in anymore also.
On my 7400 the button was bad too already when i got it, removed it & soldering the contacts from the supply cord directly on the board.
I then, glued the red cap (button) in place as if it's pressed in ;)

For me it's preserving the consoles and not so much in using them on a daily base.
But i will replace the switch sometime if i can get it from somebody.

I bought an Odyssey 2 on eBay for less than $22 shipped!  I should get it within the next day or so.  It was sold as non-working.  If I can't fix it, it's well worth $22 to me in parts, especially if it has working controllers. :)

I'll give it a good inspection and cleaning before powering it up.

I'm going to bid on another untested console tonight.  If I can get one of the two to work, I'll be happy.

Terrahawks plays great with the Trackball! Much better than with a joystick in my opinion.

Well I got in the Odyssey 2 on eBay I bought in non-working "for parts" condition in today.  It was missing the AC adaptor, and the RF modulator was broken so I replaced both and cleaned up the motherboard.  The system powers up fine but doesn't seem to read the carts.  I have had issues like this in the past and just turned those unit into parts units.  The good news is both of the controllers work!  That's worth the $21.29 I paid shipped for it.  Plus all of the extra parts I have if I can't fix the motherboard with more cleaning.

Here's some pictures.  I also got the model number if anyone would like: BC7600GT02 Both of the controllers and the console housing are dated April 22, 1982.  This Odyssey 2 has the raised logo, no Magnavox logo and the matte/rough keyboard.

As I consider virtual beer a lot less harmfull then guns, especially guns used in a civil war where lots of civilians were killed and from whom some of their relatives may actually see these forums (I actually know a couple personally because they had to flee their country back then), I want to ask you to remove these texts and photo's considering guns and stop posting them here. Do that on the proper forums somewhere else.

As I consider virtual beer a lot less harmfull then guns, especially guns used in a civil war where lots of civilians were killed and from whom some of their relatives may actually see these forums (I actually know a couple personally because they had to flee their country back then), I want to ask you to remove these texts and photo's considering guns and stop posting them here. Do that on the proper forums somewhere else.

Thanks!
Janzl

I have removed it per your respectful request.  I do not understand how photos of something can be considered offensive, but I don't have to because this is your forum and I'll respect your wishes.

I just want you and others to know I mean nothing malicious about it, I collect for historical purposes, responsible enjoyment, and I find the engineering behind such things quite interesting as it is history.  I'm not sure if museums have firearms where you are from, but I see it more as a private museum similar to how I collect O2 things.  I like to share them with others and since no one or few here seem to share that view I'll refrain from posting such things here.

Alcohol kills more people than guns in my country, so I could say the same thing.  Since I'm of legal drinking age now in the US (that post is from years ago), I can say I don't have an issue with the buy me a beer feature.  In fact, if we are ever in the same area, I'd gladly buy you a real beer or two. :)



I totally agree. In fact, I wouldn't mind if Janzl would kick you off the forum for this!!!


I don't understand this line of thinking on kicking me out as I didn't post any pictures of firearms, just magazines which are boxes with springs in them with historic significance, but I understand we come from very different areas with very different politics.  I do know personally a number of people in Europe who also enjoy the sport and historical interest in such technology.  Where I'm from, it's a recreational sport or tradition, and should be done responsibly.  Accidents and horrible events do occur as they do everywhere, but they also occur with vehicles, motorcycles, and alcohol. Something to think about.  I'm not trying to change your mind, and I hope you don't think of me as a bad person, but if you do, that's up to you.  

I didn't mean to make anyone upset, and I certainly don't think one should be booted due to unintentionally offending adults over something acceptable in my region.  Now I know. I hope there's no hard feelings Rene, I enjoy your posts and all of the information you kindly offer here and I even have a few games of yours that I really like!

I have removed the picture.  Rest assured, the magazines in that photo will never be used or even inserted into a rifle.  I'm not sure on their past, but most of them were probably never used for their intended purpose and just sat in a warehouse.  Anything I acquire of this nature will never be used illegally or to hurt people, so I suppose I can look at it as taking them off the streets.

Anyways, to get back on topic.  I just ordered HOT LOVE!  I have a good friend who will be returning from Argentina in a month, we often play the O2 together.  I think he will like this game, and he has no idea there was an adult game made for the system! :D

It´s not about videogames, but my passion by games started with boardgames, all in all I think board games had a big influence on videogames history, starting with the first Odyssey, passing by the unique Master Strategy Series and even a module was created only to make Chess possible on Vpac. I finally could find it (and by a nice price). It´s a game board collection release in the late of 70´s called "All Games" (not true). It contents many boardgames, a book with games history, a book of card games, many tokens, dices, cards, records etc. Now I jsut need to organize it, and who knows I can have some inspiration for an Ody game.

Early Odyssey 2 console with silver detachable controllers.  It came with a butcherd up video cable, and the wrong power supply, so I gave it one of my extra O2 power supplies and used an Atari video cable. :)  It also came with 7 boxed games.  All but one have the manual.

The silver controllers worked, but they required abnormal force to operate and generally don't work well.  All silver joysticks I have (4) are like this, so I replaced them with 2 detachable black controllers that have the newer flat boards in them and it works well now. :D

This O2 means I have a number of major variations of Odyssey 2 units in the states.

1) Early model with detachable controllers

2) Model with smooth keyboard and flat logo with Magnavox logo

3) Model with rough keyboard and flat logo, no Magnavox logo

4) Model with raised logo

Also: A awesome custom built vectrex controller i didn't have in my (complete) vectrex collection.

Post by: Sweersa on May 12, 2014, 12:42:05 PM
I just won an eBay auction on an Odyssey 2 "working" but has no power supply and the right controller doesn't work. It looks like the right controller only needs a new wire.  Less than $20 shipped.

I'll post pictures when I get it! It looks like an older unit so I'll probably have to desolder the shield to clean the motherboard and replace the controller wire easily. I usually do this with the older consoles with the shields, and then solder a ground wire on similar to the white ground wire the newer O2 units have because the old ones use the shield as ground, and without that, you can't use it. :)

Post by: daddy_scott on June 09, 2014, 03:33:18 AM
I was wrong.  It is 8 needed.  The ones I don't have are the expensive and rare varieties.

Casino Slot Machine
Popeye
Power Lords
Type and Tell
Q*bert
Spiderman
Sid the Spellbinder
Super Cobra

I have seen Casino Slot Machine and Type and Tell recently on eBay. 

The rest are simply conversions of loose cartridges to boxes games with manuals.

Cool! Never knew you collected saturn as well. I'm currently missing MortalKombatTrilogy , Swagman and Dragonforce for me (although i have a good lead on MKT and swagman). Dreamcast still needs 10 or so games (only 1 or 2 really rare ones) which i can get from ebay anytime.
I already put some of the completesets up there to help me estimate their value, and i'm only consider selling some of them when i'm completely out of money (which happens frequently these days when dedicating yourself to indie game development). I"m still sorting out some of the other collections as well (got a whole bunch of spare megacd and 32x stuff) so i'll be adding some more stuff over the next weeks.
For some reason MegaCD, like the 32x, is harder to complete as some games just never seem to hit ebay/internet.

I got complete sets for both Saturn and Dreamcast PAL (Dreamcast also all the US games that had not been released as PAL, as well as quite a few Japanese ones ...)

wow ... just looked up Swagman and Dragonforce prices on ebay ... glad I finished my collection quite some years back ;-) Its interesting to see, that the expensive games are quite easy to get (if you are willing to pay the price) - e.g., Panzer Dragoon Saga, Dragonforce, Swagman (there are a few of those on ebay now), but some games almost never turn up (like Mortal Kombat Trilogy - for me this was the last game I needed and I waited some years before one finally appeared on ebay ... and then I bought it for 7€ or something ...)

Don't know if you got "Taxi 2" for Dreamcast already - if you do I hope you played it :-) it was actually one of my favorite Dreamcast games ...

Yes, rare and popular games are ones that are mistaken quite often, especially in the grey area like e.g. P.D.Saga (rumored to have 8000 copies released in europe). There are tons and tons of PS2 games with a production runs of less than 10.000 or sometimes 5000 (protip: all 505-games stuff) that you can find in bargain bins for 5 euros or less.
I noticed there is a lot of 'rare, but not completely rare' stuff that you just don't see a lot, for example i had to wait a long time to find a simpsons bart vs world or asterix great rescue for the mastersystem. Haven't gotten taxi2 yet (usually go for 50-ish on ebay) but thanks for the tip, didn't know about the quality of that game.

I remember, many years ago, Marcelo, owner of the Odyssey brazilian site, told me he would like to have "one of these KC Munchkin´s plush", at this time I just thinked "What this guy is taking about?". Anyway, I had forget about it. It was just like to play Clay Pigeon, I was trying to hit the plate and hit the eagle. On the picutre it looks much more new and clean like it looks personally. He´s very dirty and its plastic eyes are very yellow. I making some reseach to find a better way to clean it. Aparentelly it´s structure is all of plastic, wich make the things easy. ;)

Today I replaced a tail light and an exterior door handle.  Next up is to replace the broken and missing sun visors, and an airbag sensor and wire harness!  It's an easy vehicle to work on so far, and I figure I'll save hundreds by not taking it to the dealer!

I needed something to get me around safely in the snow months. It only needs minor work (mostly cosmetic) and I can do all of it myself.  I love it so far!
Nice car, but over here i would need a second mortgage to pay for the fuel alone.

It's definitely not cheap on gas!  I bought it mostly to handle snowy road conditions.

Maybe I can fit the game room in the vehicle!  Haha

Not videopac related, but cd-i is Philips. Altough they had a g7200 for sale., but for 300 euro, no. Small note, he asked that price because he had it for show and didn't intend to sell.

Anyway, i got the holygrail in cd-i gaming: Solar Crusade. The lastofficial cd-i game that was released a full 3 years after Philips had dropped support for the cd-i.

Got it in a shop in Nijmegen for 65 euro. The shop owner knew you Janzl.
they also had a professional cd-i player for sale, think it was the 660. But it would cost 99 euro+.

Nice find!

What shop was it? Or where?

- edit -

It must have been Gator. He asked me about the price for a G7200. I told him they'd go between €100-150 even though I got mine for €45  ;D

Well, I guess he doubled my "appraisal" haha. Did he still have the A2600 in the show-window?

Yes, the a2600 was still in the shop-window. If it wasn't for the a2600, i never would have know that he also sells games. My employer has move to a new location, so if i go to the town center i take a route trough that street, that was how i found the shop.

Rafael, you know that he must first repair the blinking dots. After that, both of you, could make a new Munchkin game.

It is really time, that our Videopac/Odyssey mascot get a new game...


Tom, just seems you was guessing :o
How I could read (and understand) the iconic KC Munchkin will return. From the hands of its own creator... :o

If I understand right, he make a new K.C.Munchkin game for Microsoft.

It were a (unrealizable) dream, if Ed would make a new game for Odyssey 2 or 3. Only just for fun. A present for his old fans, who play and love his games till today.

But like I sayed... only a dream - but a good one.

Nice!, that must be the first generation of trackballs.
If i'm right, the first trackballs came out in the early 80s?

Are games on O2 are playable better with the trackball?


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: VideopacBelgium on November 20, 2014, 07:58:49 PM
Is that the rare Odyssey2 version of the trackball, or an Atari version?


Is the WICO trackball TRS-80 version work on G7400, it seems to use the same DIN plug and an external power supply.

This is the youtube from ccc--- about this Wico.

It should work in joystick mode, but... it needs power and a standard Videopac has no power supply on the joystick ports. If you build and adapter cable you can add a small 5 Volt power supply in between.

Bought the Odyssey 2 today!  It is very clean, if fact I cannot remember buying a cleaner console.  It was made in late 1981.  Has the Magnavox logo, smooth keyboard, and flat Odyssey 2 logo.  This is my favorite US version.

Ozyr, for your records it is Model Number BJ7600 Finish GY02 Serial Number 15708154 (It included the Magnavox Inspection Card, which is always nice) Has the older style box and owner's manual.

My eBay purchase from Canada arrived today.  Paid a little over $15 for it all the manuals shipped :)

I bought it mostly for the Killer Bees! manual, which I had only the cart for.

- Killer Bees! - appears to be US version

- Alien Invaders - Plus! - This one is Canadian (French), I believe

- Thunderball! US

- US Owner's Manual

- Philips Videopac 5

- Philips Videopac 4

- Radiola Videopac 35

I think I got a good deal!  I'm not sure of the rarity of these items, but I do really like them

It's always been important to me when buying cartridges that they have the manuals with them.  When I first started collecting, I didn't pay as much attention to it, but now I've tried like crazy to get them all.  Looks like good finds on your part there.  I don't see that many manuals only.

The Voice Module for less than $70 shipped on eBay.  Came with 3 of the Voice games, and a manual and magic booklet for Nimble Numbers Ned.  It works great!  The inside of the module was very dirty, so I spent some time cleaning it.  I really like how it works.  I'm sure I'll have a lot of fun with this one!

I've thought of getting The Voice module, but it's tough for me to justify even $70...   :(

I'd say it's worth it. One could probably find them for a better deal if they looked hard enough.  Sometimes they are bundled with untested consoles and sell for less, but that is slightly more risky as they are untested.

Post by: LS650 on January 25, 2015, 04:19:14 PM
After my post yesterday, I looked on eBay for Odyssey Voice, and there were only a few.
One was untested for $15 - but the seller wanted $45 to ship to Canada by priority post.  $60 seems like a lot to gamble on an untested device.

Other than that, the other Voice modules were over $100 - some WELL over - plus shipping.

I just bought an Odyssey 2 with voice module for $25 shipped!  It included the power cable and a PAP cart.  The console seems to work except the description says both controllers don't work.  I have extra controllers if those are bad, and if it's something on the motherboard, I'm sure it can be fixed with some help here :)  I think the seller may lose money on shipping when you count in the fees.

Haha that would be funny! René could easily do that, maybe we could team up if he were to move to the US :) I have many spare parts. If I can get the controllers to work on the new console, that will be 13 working Odyssey 2 units! Clearly, I have a problem.  I suppose one benefit of being single is you can have 13 of the same huge vintage consoles, half with the boxes, without issues.

Nice find !

Well I took the day off from work today and had more time for the new O2. I was only able to clean the console and Voice module before today. Replaced one controller, and a controller cable to get them both working again!  I also replaced the bottom of the console enclosure, as the original had a little piece broken off and I have a few extra in the spare parts bin.

I look forward to playing it today. :)

Spent $25 shipped for both the console and Voice module. It also came with a PAP cart. Both needed cleaning, and the O2 needed the above repairs.  I'd say that's not a bad deal at all.  The guy paid almost $17 to ship it, but he made a little money and has less clutter now.

Now I have 13 Odyssey 2 consoles!  :o

In my opinion, Sweersa must get the "Videopac.nl price 2015".

He recover so many Odyssey2 before they die, that must be real love!  ;)

Haha that would be funny, and cool!  If I see a good deal, or a potential fun project, I can't help but jump on it. I think it is love!

Maybe this video started it:

YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aPEiA50hJg

I should donate one to a local museum, with a nice box.  I certainly would if they would let me arrange the display, and if they would actually display it and not store it away.  I also should give a few to my cousins who played with the one that started it all so many years ago.  I should have a chat with them to see if they would play, I think they would!

Since i had only one game for my gx4000, i had to buy the c4cpc when it came out.

Made a box for my c4cpc, using an old dvd shell. Once i get a cartridge shell, makes switching the gx4000 on a bit easier since the dustcover is now blokking the powerswitch, i will need a bigger box. But for now i think it's great.
Uses some artwork from here and from gx4000.co.uk.

Been to 3 fleamarkets today and found some nice stuff.
5 years of power unlimited magazines. This is a Dutch magazine i bought a few times back then.
Nice thing is this is from 1994 to 2000 so it has a lot of info on those old pc stuff, sega, nintendo, 3do, cd-i.

Also found 3 cd-i titles. De zaak van Sam, Titanic an interactive exploration and Dominos.

Bart Simpon's escape from camp deadly.

And 2 boxed pc games: star wars x-wing vs tie fighter the academy expansion and hunter hunted.

Also found a nice joystick for the nes. A quickjoy ni-4 with autofire.

Yes, that´s a H.G for sure. I really can´t understand why the brazilian Philips can shed  such small quantities of some games. I think at the time the Odyssey was even having a good commercial performance here. Perhaps the problem encountered by Philips of Brazil was knowing that they would not like to stay around for a long time given that there would be no prospect of the new arrival (and good) titles being produced?

It has already arrived! It made it's way into the US before the person I bought it from had it. :) It was likely imported with Chinese items, as I would imagine shipping something directly from DPRK to the US would be difficult, if not impossible.  It is a military pouch, so nothing too special, but it goes well with some other North Korean items I have.

Just imagine if the communists made an Odyssey 2!  I bet the enclosure would be stamped steel, and explode under circumstances that would be normal for our consoles.  

I heard some old communist TVs would explode, and that's why they said to never sit too close to the TV!  Could just be an old wives tale though.

I have noticed a few people on my other forums starting to collect for the Odyssey 2 recently. Nice to know people are still discovering it like I did a while ago.

I just got a Turtles manual and a Great Wall Street Fortune Hunt in the mail today. I have a few questions about the Wall St. game though:
According to this site: http://www.the-nextlevel.com/odyssey2/strategy/wallst/index.php (http://www.the-nextlevel.com/odyssey2/strategy/wallst/index.php) the game has two sets of eight green and gold tokens, yet the picture only shows 7. I got 7 of each. I'm wondering what the two sets meant. On one side is the M mark and the other side is the $ mark. All on one token. Is that what they meant? Otherwise, the game seems to be complete. It even has the little paper pads to write stuff on.

It´s hard to know how many carts was produced. My cartdrige has the serial # 101, the other I saw was # 145.
That is, for now there is no evidence that more than 200 copies were produced, which is very strange for a company of the size of Philips.

In the 80s, Philips told us, that we can swap the joysticks from Videopac G7400 with other action systems. But I never found somewhere back then an other joystick.

Till now. It was sold as "Joystick for PHILIPS G7400". So I must have them. Better late, then never.  ;D

The G7400 has round (DIN) joystick connectors. So those might really fit. Very nice find.


Title: Re: The last thing bought ....

So those might really fit. Very nice find.

Thanks Dieter. Yes, the joystick worked. I can also use both firebuttons for example at Terrahawks. Make fun. But I must have more practise. The joystick react very sensitive. It´s also possible, because I only use the Philips joysticks for over 30 years now.  :)

Is there an adapter for that? It doesn't look like that would work for a 7000.

This joystick is, I think, only for the G7400 (see pic). Today, there is also an adapter for the G7400, for use other joysticks. See pic.

I never had a G7000 with exchangeable joysticks, so I doesn`t know which connectores they have.





Title: Re: The last thing bought ....
Post by: daddy_scott on December 09, 2016, 04:06:29 AM
Looks like the connections for the 7400 are different than the 7000. Well, what I assume the 7000 would be since I have the US version. Those with the removable joysticks look like Atari 2600 ends.

I guess I should have read all the posts after my original.  :D

Thanks Rafael. No, unfortunately there was no box. I never saw a joystick like this till now. So I think, it`s not common.
I saw Captain Grant joysticks for Atari at eBay. So the box look maybe like this, but only for Videopac:

Yes. Half/half. In the first level, you must shoot from a ship onto a base. The opposite from Videopac 51. When they hit your ship, you are into it, and must extinguish the fire.

When the fire is out, you are again into the ship and shoot against the base.
 
Videopac 51 is much more fun and colorful.  ;D     But the LCD look nice into my collection (see pic). I love things, that match to my Videopac games. Because of that, I have also some figures into it. When the movie "Nights at the Museum" were "Nights in Tom´s Collection", I would have a lot of fun.   :D

http://www.ebay.com/itm/282366901100

The title says 7 games but the description and photos only show 4. I'm betting the seller was too lazy to test it since he was lazy enough to copy the title from another posting.. or too lazy to proof read before he listed it...

I'll let everyone know if it all works when it arrives.

I liked the look of the new case that Timdu used for Mean Santa so much I contacted him and asked him to send me enough to move all of my 2600connection releases as well as the R. B. Pinball game into them. I emailed him to request this, paid him for everything and his time spent making case inserts for his releases that did not come with them originally.

Those new cases look great and stack much better compared to the original clear plastic ones.

I also bought this French beauty last year, a G7401, good looking and in perfect condition. How I really enjoy this videopac-universe  ;:).

Forgive my American ignorance since we didn't get the O3 here. Is that just a French version of the G7400?

yes, it is a French version of G7400. Main difference is the keyboard layout and the G7401 also has a RGB output.

I gave a "Game Keeper" from the US a new home here in Germany.

It can be used in Slot 1 for Intellivision games and in Slot 2 for Atari and Odyssey2 games. Of course, I use..... ... Slot 2!   :D

I filled it with some double Odyssey2 games.

Well, I just received it today.
These items belonged to a guy named Norian. Something I think I've never told you here is that Norian was a great "Odyssey friend". When I had access to the internet he was  who had the most exciting Odyssey collection around here. At that time, perhaps 20 years ago, he only was needing "O Segredo do Faraó", so I tried to find his phone number to try some guidance on how to get Odyssey cartridges, in short, Norian was a reference for me. Despite growing up with a 2600, Norian was so cool that his favorite console was Odyssey (and Microvision) and his dream, in addition to completing his collection was to code  games for the Odyssey. One day, I entered his homepage and noticed the joy in his words, he had found "O Segredo do Faraó" and finally completed his Odyssey (Brazilian) collection (probably the first to get all 60 Philips carts). His next step was to code a game and what I never wrote here is that Norian was the one who taught me the first steps of programming. At that time he, who had fluency in English much greater than mine, he learned some tricks with  Soeren Gust and gave me something. Despite the enormous importance of Rene (and other friends) it was Noriam who taught me how to compile, draw sprites, grid etc. Somewhere I have a little program done by this good friend, it's just a red "guy" running inside a "maze". Unfortunately, some 6/7 years ago, Norian left us. I'm sure, to the joy of some and the exasperation of others, if he were here we would have more and more games. With these two cartridges I complete my collection of "Odyssey" games not released here, but to be honest I wish your previous owner was enjoying them. Just a few belated words of thanks ...

Thanks for your wonderful story, Rafael.

And thanks, of course, also to Norian. A big Odyssey fan and mentor. Better late than never.
