Unisonic Champion 2711 40th Anniversary!

Hi folks!

I know i've been out of the picture for quite some time as my last post was end of February. Well  my personal life (job, kids, etc...) takes mostly of my free time but i always come back when i have a chance (like this one!).

Remember the post of January 8, 2018 ? Well in the meantime that i went "into the void", decle has released the final two missing games and a bonus: a brand new game for the Unisonic Champion 2711!!

That's right, a new game called "Bottom Gas" which is a port of the Atari 2600 game "Dragster" made by Activision, just go at this link to get the roms: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/273767-lil-bro-ii-a-better-unisonic-champion-simulator-for-the-intellivision/



And if you're curious on how the Unisonic Champion 2711 internally works (hardware & software) then read everything on the top link and also here: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/273768-download-lil-bro-ii-digital-game-roms-free

Decle made a hell of a great job and he so much impressed me that my brain went kablewwwyy! LOL!! it's guys like this that i love retro video gaming! =)

Until next post, take care all! =)

The "boomerang" effect

this is weird...i'm usually the one who makes donations but this time, it's me who gets a donation. I have made donations to the "Imusée" some few years ago as we were partners (i was the president of the CCJVQ back then) of some Pong and standalone consoles (Like a Nintendo Racing 112 or a Bandai TV-Jack 5000 to name a few...).

But it is strange who things can turn around (like a boomerang) as Marc-André Léger (from the Imusée) gave 4 Pong consoles to Éric St-Cyr & Sarah Szefer (from Noir Magnétique and also the ones who replaced me as president after my departure) and they gave me those 4 Pong consoles, which are a K-Mart S4000, a IEA Technology Teletainment, a National Semiconductor Adversary 370 and a Sharp model 2200.

So a huge "Thank You!!" goes to Marc-André, Éric and Sarah for the Pong consoles!! And here,s some pictures of the consoles:















 I'll mod these when i'll find some spare times as i still have two Soundic Victory MPT-03 to fix first (and those are also donations from my "good-old video game collector buddy" Ianoid).

Late Merry Xmas & Happy New Year! - Unisonic Champion 2711 on the Intellivision ?!?

Hi folks!

Last year wasn't my best year as many personal things happened but now it's a new year which just started and hopefully it will be (way) better than last year.

Decle of Atari Age forum has posted this announcement on January 1st, 2018: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/273767-lil-bro-ii-a-better-unisonic-champion-simulator-for-the-intellivision/   Talk about beginning the New Year with a bang! LOL!

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Unisonic Champion 2711 (Hey! Even the world's most obscure game system can have a celebration), decle released for now three game packs of the Champion 2711 which are: Blackjack & Baccarat (the built-in games), Poker Games and Family Fun simulated for the Mattel Intellivision! Yep...that's right...for the Intellivision as both game systems uses the same CPU (CP1600). 

The two missing packs will be coming pretty soon so keep an eye out as decle has done a marvelous job simulating these games on the Intellivision! =)

Until next,
