This was done with a RGB light sixer and a Nintendo Atari 7800 controller

YES on ALL! :)

Again, welcome to High Score. :)

I hope that you used a 7800 Europad controller. The 7800 Proline controller is way to painfull and awkward to use. You can also use a Sega Genesis 3-button controller on games for the 2600. The action button with be button 2. This works on the 2600 and 7800. If you wish to use a Genesis controller to play games for the 7800, most games will require an inexpensive adapter that Atari Age sells called the Segull 78 Controller Adapter. It's only $25. You simply plug it into the controller port, plug the Genesis controller into it, and you're done. It automatically maps the two action buttons for the 7800 to buttons 2 and 3 of the Genesis controller.

I modded my own controller. It's a Nintendo controller setup just like the 7800 Europad controller i hope this is ok because this game is only one button, no kind of turbo was used and my thumb was very tired after :)

Welcome to highscore.com! The picture of the light sixer convinced me that this isn't emulated! Well done and yes vote!

Thanks RetroRob! One of the best compliments a modder can get is needing proof of real hardware smiley

I re-watched you video because I just placed another order at Atari Age which includes this game. In answer to your question, your controller is fine. Personally I use a Sega Genesis 3-button controller when playing games for the 2600 that don't require a specialty controller (Paddle, Driving, Touchpad).

Oh yeah, Flappy is great! Just put some tunes on and Flap away from city to city. Id like to check out the AtariAge Jump VCS game next.

@AwesomeOgre:

I don't have the Jump game yet. It's only a matter of time before I get around to it. Flappy is rather inexpensive at Atari Age. It gos for $20, but as I'm an annual subscriber I get 5% of all purchases that I make at the Atari Age store, so it only cost me $19. I was relieved that Flappy was already in the database here, as my requests for Alligator People, Mappy, Space Game, and Super Cobra Arcade (amoung others) still haven't been processed here yet.

That 5% discount comes in handy as I've been buying an average of 2 games from Atari Age  every week for 2 months now.
