Re: 1980's music thread :)

Here's one from Kitaro, famous from epic 80's tv-series "Silk Road" theme. Here's their song "Mandala" from 1981, doesn't it have sort of Knight Rider vibe from Soul Survivor, the "hypnotic" music ;) First it lures you relaxing with the beautiful intro, then suddenly start the "evil" low frequency s...

1980's music thread :)

Let's try listing here great 80's music, pophits, synth wave, rock, whatever you like. Doesn't matter if it was in Knight Rider or not. Just to bring some activity here. Youtube links would be nice :) I'll start for example with Sandra, Maria Magdalena. Love this synth pop music :) Might've been nic...

Re: Anyone know the name of the COMTRON Font?

Commodore Amiga had Fonts library already in the 80's.
I have similar Font in my computer (PC, Win10) called Computerfont. I have forgotten though where I downloaded it.

Re: Never Did Like Devon When Series Progressed

Wasn't Devon originally an engineer who was the team leader for creating KITT and probably KARR as well? Engineers and humanists seems to be totally different people When Wilton Knight died, Devon sort of took his position at the Foundation. There was still higher bosses so for example Devon had to ...

Re: What have I found???

I believe the model in question is the ERTL Joyride 1/18 KITT model. The original version, released in 2004 had the outermost foglights in amber colour, silver base, etc. and later it was updated to have all clear foglights and black base. Here's my original 2004 KITT with small mods (amber foglight...

Re: MBS question

Found my first videogames and computer

Recently found from my parents storage the first videogame console I ever played with, a Conic TVG 201-4. My parents bought it maybe in the late 70's and loved playing with it as a kid. It's been in cold storage at least 25 years and unfortunately batteries were still inside, rusted through, leaked ...

Re: Knight rider on the PS2 system -users have played that?

Here's pics of my PS2 version of the Knight Rider 2 game, front and back cover, inside the case and the purple disc. Until now I thought PS2 uses DVD discs for games but Knight Rider 2 game is in CD format. Checked out GT3 and GT4 and they are DVD discs though. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4681/24...

Isn't that what Knight Rider is about, fighting against the criminals who operate above the law Surely nothing makes sense if criminals...

Re: Knight rider on the PS2 system -users have played that?

I mentioned it, out of interest. Knight Rider has been airing here in the UK on channel 31 on the freeview box, that is how I watch television, so no cable subscription. But yeah, I completed when I got it, and yes, not a special game, but certainly the car is the focus, and it is inspired from a f...

Re: Knight rider on the PS2 system -users have played that?

Bought myself a used PS2 just two months ago and Knight Rider 2 game for it. Haven't played it very much yet, just few first missions but already I get the feeling that there is room for improvement As a side note, never had PS2 before, only the PS1 and PS3. It's the original PS2 Fat model and I'm a...

Re: If kitt would've been a Datsun ?

Bionic Woman had Datsun few years earlier so maybe that was one reason why Knight Rider didn't use it? Maybe Mazda RX-7 could've been another choice? I bet if Knight Rider had used any other car than '82 Trans-Am, we would complain right now: "Why they didn't use 1982 Pontiac Trans-Am for KITT ...

Re: What sort of computer is in KITT?

The real Intellivision has hard wired controllers which have numeric keypads and the "directional disc". In the episode it looks like they are playing with the more common Atari style joystic. This would pull towards to emulation for KITT instead of putting Intellivision hardware under KIT...

Didn't find quickly any battery replacement videos either for you but it should be easy enough to do even without guidance video.

Do you have the US version box or EU version? I have bought three different EU region 3rd Season DVD releases (UK, Nordic and Nordic slim case) and all of them have missing sound effects. Haven't bought the entire 1-4 box though, just the one Season per box releases.

I thought it was common knowledge that 5 original KITTs survived. The hero car for season 1/2, the hero car for season 3/4, the convertible, and a couple of stunt cars. There was a get together a few months ago that brought 3 of the cars together. I think the convertible is in a Florida museum. I h...

Re: Another glimpse into the reality side of AI and machines.

Thinking about AI in theory brings good things like KITT in mind but when it's becoming more real, it's KARR that begins to fill the mind. This human looking robot says she want's to destroy humans. Not sure if "she" has been programmed to say that or was it the AI itself that created that...
