- I see you got your answer to the trackball
Here's some more info. concerning 2 and 4 port Atari
There are only 2 "compatibility" issues.
1) The game Pitfall only works on 4 port units
(and does not work on 2 port units.) (Pitfall II works
fine on both units.)
2) The VCS adaptor (to let you play 2600 games on
your 5200) only works on 2 port units. (I have read
that the adaptor would be damaged if you try to use it
on a 4 port unit but I have never experimented so I
don't know if that is correct.)(I have also read that
4 port units with an "*" in the serial # also will run
the VCS adaptor, but those units are supposedly rare.)
Also, the 4 port units have a unique switchbox. The
power cord plugs into that switchbox (unlike the 2
port units where it plugs into the unit). Thus, you
need the special switchbox to utilize a 4 port unit.
(If you don't have one they are really easy and cheap
[about $6] to build. Plans are found at 5200 FAX that
I know is maintained at the Atari Gaming Headquarters
Otherwise the 2 and 4 port units are functionally the
same. Other cartridges and other accessories work
identically on both. I note the only 4 player game
that comes to mind is SuperBreakout. There may be 1
or 2 other 4 player games but they don't come to mind
Enjoy your 5200 collecting.
