Atari Party of Davis, 2016

Postby Android8675 » Mon Aug 01, 2016 6:11 pm

Hey Jookie,

Just wanted to say that I took my v1 CE mounted inside a 1040 STe to the Atari Party of Davis last Saturday(7/30/16). I was running it with 2 lighted USB joysticks with 4 player Gauntlet 2 and I got a LOT of positive looks and serious inquiries about the device. Had I thought a LITTLE further ahead I could of had the Wifi running, and actually in hindsight I completely forgot to mention that point. Luckily I printed a 1 sheet with a QR code to your site for the device. I had a few people scan it with their phones.

Just wanted to let you know how cool the CE is and keep up the good work.

I wasn't able to make this year's party but was hoping to bring my 1040ST with Cosmosex too... hopefully will be able to make it for next year's party! (I think we might have already exchanged a few messages on the Davis Atari Party Facebook page?)

Originally via a printer port adapter, I believe, see thread here: viewtopic.php?t=20647

So if you plug in 4 USB joysticks via the Cosmosex does Gauntlet 2 see them as if they were connected via the printer port dongle?

I actually made my own Parallel Port adapter to play this. The CE USB interface worked for Players 1-2, the Parallel for 3-4. Since this was an STe we were also able to plug in a couple Jagpads for 6 player Dynablast, but playing 6 player anything on a small monitor was a pain. I took almost zero photos this year, next year I'm gonna setup a timelapse camera and take more photos.

Yeah, this year I setup 2 8-bits, a STe and PC. Next year I'm just bringing the STe and a projector with a thumping stereo.
