I think I'll have them before the end of the week, so I should be able to test them out over the weekend. I like the fact that they are removable.
Sloan, you mentioned that you repair 5200 joysticks. Do you do the same thing for Intellivision contollers? One of my controllers probably needs some adjustments made to it. The disc is sunken. It does work but I don't know if it will stop working any time soon because of this.
Interesting that you say the stickler sticks are removable. Mine are not, short of disassembling the controller casing.
As for repairing INTV controllers, my main hindrance is getting replacement parts. There is nowhere that I know of still selling NOS INTV controller parts. I can still (thankfully) buy most 5200 controller parts NOS through Best Electronics out of California.
That'll be a problem as the consoles die off.sloan wrote:I know in the case of Atari, the guy who started Best Electronics bought out a bunch of boxed stock from Atari. Unfortunately, I will guess that when Coleco and INTV corp bailed on their console business, there were many parts and controllers that went to the trash dumpster. Just a guess, but no massive stock of CV or INTV controllers/parts/games have turned up over the years.
At least, that alternative exists. It would be nifty if there were console emulation. In other words, a modern console that would run an emulator of one or several of these classic machines so the player can have an experience closer to what it was meant to be.sloan wrote:Agree, and is the reason that classic gaming is all bound for PC emulation, sooner or later.
