bit 7? I didn't knew it, I don't find it in the Stella Guide... have you
confidential information that we don't know? :) Problem solved, thanks
again..... oh yes, it is in page 25... "C. Latched Inputs Ports (I4, I5)"...

yes, I remember when I was 11 or 12 years old I used to play with a pot
inside the 2600 (left side) that changed the colors ... I broke something
because colors were changed permanently and the white color never came back
again :( but I can still play.

I use z26 because its colors are exactly the same colors that I remember
from my old 2600 (not atari, a clone). Since I don't have a Supercharger, I
can't see the colors on a real 2600... I'll trust z26 :)

Good idea... I can do it with two PAL-N 2600 (well, one is broken as I said

I have a question: If I make a PAL game, it will work on an NTSC system but
with colors changed and faster speed? or just won't work? I have the PELE
game (football, soccer) and I play it on my 2600 with a red background, so I
think it is an NTSC game... in emulators I see the background green
(obviously the right color), what is the problem?

oh, sorry... it was my problem, I was living in Abril :)...
