Group Description

Welcome to the Bally Arcade/Astrocade discussion group. Here you will find topics relating to the videogame/computer console released in the late seventies called the Bally Arcade (oftentimes called the Astrocade).

Hardware and software development discussions are strongly encouraged, but topics of any sort can be discussed.

This is the discussion group for Ballyalley.com, the site that is the information depository of all things Astrocade related.

There are two encouraged topics. The first is "programs that can be used as cross-development tools with or without a RAM upgrade for the Bally Arcade/Astrocade." The other is "building inexpensive RAM upgrades that are backward compatible with older RAM upgrades." Topics are NOT limited to these two discussions though, so feel free to post anything Bally Arcade/Astrocade related.

In order to read the messages in this discussion group you will have to become a member (it doesn't take long). It's strongly encouraged that you use the search feature to skim through the several years worth of postings in case the topic that you want to ask about has come up before (fixing the Astrocade, for instance, has been discussed dozens of times). The past postings contain an awful lot of material that is worth reading, so you might want to skim it if you ever get a chance (it's a mountain of information, but there really IS lots of useful information in there!).

Look around and enjoy yourself.
