Tomy TV-Fun 602 TV Game // トミー TV FUN 602 テレビゲーム

After about 15 years...i finally got one of the most unknown Japanese Pong console ever: the Tomy TV-Fun model 602! And as Fall starts today, i have received this rare game console as it was the last game console/system i was truly looking for, but sadly, i am not enjoying it as i should be as my father passed away 4 days ago so sorry if i'm not jumping and screaming like a little kid who received the best toy. But this TV Game will be forever in my mind (last console / father passed away).

So without waiting, here's some pictures i just took:

And here's the "guts" or teardown of this console:

And here's the infamous game chip, photographed for the first time!

And now, here's some screenshot of the 3 games:

 RF connected..ARGH! But at least i know it works.

 5 minutes later, 1st attempt to plug by video input...Booya!

 So easy to modify to "Video Output", just connect a wire to Pin #17 (it is the 
Composite Video output on the MSL9320).

Clear image, way better than RF!

 The "Squash" game.

The "Tennis" game (duh!).

And the final one, the "Hockey" game.

So that's it for now folks. The next post will be videos of this rare gem! Until next! 

Death in the family...

Last Sunday (September 17, 2017) my father passed away at the age of 75 of leukemia. He was
diagnosed with this cancer only in April and after 5 months, he his now in a better world.
As i would say, it's not a farewell but only a "next time" as we all must go one day.

So to my father, see you next time and until then, i'll miss you so much! :(

Incrível, mas eu gostaria de saber qual é o título da janela, para poder usar em frontends.

Translation: Amazing, but I'd like to know what the window title is, so I can use it in frontends.

My reply in Portuguese:Olá Dennis, basta pressionar "F1" e você verá o título do simulador, o mesmo que todos os outros simuladores que eu tenho e vou fazer. A resolução padrão para qualquer simulador é 800x600 no modo de janela, mas pode mudar para qualquer resolução pressionando "F7" ou "F8". =)

In English: Hello Dennis, just press "F1" and you will see the title of the simulator, same as all other simulators i have and will done. The default resolution for any simulators is 800x600 in Window mode but can change to any resolution by pressing "F7" or "F8". =)
