Ok I'm pretty sure these are common, Fountain Games Console, two controllers with 12 keys + 2 fire buttons + joystick, uses cartidges.
Not sure on age, but the games are compatible with consoles dating from 1976 to 1982 - so I'm figuring around 82/83??
Anywho hooked it up to my 42" LCD, did an auto-scan and it found a black screen. I flicked it to OFF and it went to fuzz - I'd found it!
Powered it back on, black screen, then press reset and up comes (what turns out is a preview) of ping pong
It does make a buzzing noise when plugged in, which made me a little uneasy, but worked great.
Took me a while to work it out, but (at least for the Olympics 1 cartridge):
- press reset to load cart
- keep pressing (or hold down) select until the game number you want comes up then let go
- wait until the screen alternates colours - this mean the game is loaded (it has to copy from ROM to RAM apparently)
- press start
Not my webpage, but link to the games: http://crash.ihug.co.nz/~pinwhiz/fountain.htm
My console looks more like the ROM tester at the bottom than the Force 2 above it. Nothing is dated.
Think mine is the generation before the Force range.
If anyone knows more about these, I'd love to hear any information you have.
