OK, here's a dumb question from somebody who admittedly just glances over most posts to this list... I've seen bits here and there about the potential (I think) for LEDs on the controllers. This means the ports are bidirectional? Would it be possible to "link" two 2600 consoles together using a 9-pin cord connecting, say, the second joystick port on both systems? Or to make network ID assignment even simpler, what if one console used port #1, and the other used port #2? Then you'd automatically know which console was which. Just curious if we could ever have a networked 2600 game... :-) Thanks, Carl Forhan <>< Vindicator Online: http://www.millcomm.com/~forhan/vindicator.html -- Archives available at http://www.biglist.com/lists/stella/archives/ E-mail UNSUBSCRIBE in the body to stella-request@xxxxxxxxxxx to be removed.
