Atari VCS 2600 Composite Video Mod

Credits for this mod go to Circuit-board.de

My Atari VCS was resting for 5+ years in the cellar when I finally got Yars’ Revenge for it. (Recommended by a fellow Retro Gamer).

To hookup the VCS to the TV, I used the builtin antenna cable. As you can guess, Image quality was horrible !

So I decided to go ahead and look for a nice and not to complicated Mod, which I found at circuit-board.de (with the help of RetroRoby Tammix pointing me in the right direction)

So here’s how I did the mod. Image Quality is amazingly better and colors are very bright.

It requires some components and a bit of soldering , but it is definitely worth it!

Oh, and Yars’ Revenge is great !
