    I was just wondering if anyone has or uses the Uno cart, and also how it compares to the Harmony cart for the Atari 2600, and ultimately if high scores played on the Uno would be accepted like on the Harmony cart?I would personally prefer to use the original carts for the games but unfortunately it ...
