Your #1 source for Atari Lynx news and information!

We are moving all Atari Lynx related content over to Atari Lynx Vault and all our shop content over to K-Retro Gaming. Please update your bookmarks!

As a result of this change, the following will no longer be available: Online Lynx Emulator, Collection Tracker, Game Ratings, News. If you are interested in contributing content to Atari Lynx Vault, we are seeking editors and maintainers.

Why is this happening? First - the Atari Gamer branding is changing to K-Retro Gaming to allow us to expand to providing games, replacement parts, and mod services to other game consoles. And second - The content management system running Atari Gamer is out of date and Google AppEngine (where the website runs) will no longer allow it to run after the 30th January 2024, so in order to preserve all content we switched to a new and modern content management system and chose a website domain that better suits the subject matter. Since we are operating this website in our spare time, on top of full time family and job committments, some features had to be dropped.

  3. Atari Lynx Capacitor Maps

These are interactive maps i.e. placement locations, for electrolytic capacitors on both the Lynx 1 and Lynx 2 models. See this page if you need to know how to read capacitor values - How to Read a Capacitor.

We have complete Lynx I and Lynx II capacitor replacement kits in our shop. If you're looking to re-cap your Lynx, check them out here - Shop - Capacitor Replacement Kits

Note: Some motherboard variants have slightly different placement for capacitors. They should be near enough to be located using these maps above however.
