About this deal

As before, the customizations are activated by the presence of the "mount_sd.ini" file in the root of your USB drive (yeah, I didn't bother renaming it). By default the custom firmware will dump the internal /rom partition from the device to your attached USB storage and then use the USB copy of /rom for game roms, box art and all-games.ini file.

Lots of people will say that Atari 50 is missing gems, a lot of those tiltles are tied up with licensing and such ( uhem! Microsoft/Activision/Imagic), NOTHING you can do about that. Fair score but I give it 100 👍🤩 kids these days may not “get” the dawn of gaming 😂 for those that do. I take my hat off to you! As a 47 year old kid, I think it's the game of the year! I totally agree - ESB was a great shooter at the time. I can still see those blinking rectangles (weak spots) on the walkers, begging to be shot. That game and Pitfall 2 were like the final 2600 games I remember playing seriously, along with all our Colecovision titles, before the NES hit the scene and completely took over. Brad, thanks so much for creating this and making it available! I am a little near-sighted when it comes to looking around here and just noticed this tonight. LOL.A]n achievement... so detailed and sprawling that it feels like a history lesson told in a way that’s completely native to video games... I now want this for every retro collection.” I know the Jaguar wasn't exactly blessed with many (good) games but Club Drive and freaking' Trevor McFur In The Crescent Galaxy? These are some of the worst games ever made. Press Game Reset on the console. You may also need to press the fire button on the Paddle(s) to begin the game.

Then tried other various combinations, with one showing a message with it dumping the final partition: One tip, if you are using an old or slow USB thumb drive (like USB 2.0), you may need to wait a few minutes to allow write operations to complete when first allowing the CFW to dump files, so be patient.

Curiously, the Space Invaders "new" (not the original 2600 one) menu item is blank and unplayable when the USB thumb drive is attached (using an older 4GB Toshiba) with the OTG cable, but once the drive is removed is appears and plays OK... The Atari 2600 is a video game console released in September 1977. It's the third console of its generation following the Fairchild Channel F and RCA Studio II.
