for the big Version 9 release, we are going to have dedicated feature specific threads. Please use the MEGA thread for general fw discussion, using these for known specific features once the fw is being used.

No mention of Atari games on the V9 page, but on the Tesla Blog it says the games are hidden:

Classic arcade games from Atari are now discoverable as hidden Easter Eggs. If you can find them, your car becomes a game console with controls on the touchscreen and steering wheel. Happy hunting!


Who knows where to find them?

No one wants to take the fun of you finding it away from you by spilling the secret!

The games look great full screen but are hard to control with the steeering wheel. I can’t figure out how to play more than one game with full screen on either. Hopefully these get improvements over time. Lunar Lander was the easiest to play for me in full screen mode.

Whoa, they SOUND great too (at least Lunar Lander--haven't tried the others).

I am happy that these appear to be the actual arcade games and not the Atari 2600 ports.

I was wondering how you controlled it while in full screen. Glad you mentioned it's the steering wheel. Now I'll have to figure that out.

One question though...I had been Bluetooth streaming from my phone prior to popping into a game. After I exited, my phone audio was no longer audible. I submitted a bug report. Anyone else notice this?

Turns out this is not straightforward at all (and maybe even a little buggy)--and I don't think it's because I'm above a certain age where using a gamepad controller is second nature. I can't figure out how to move the Missile Command cursor at all with the steering wheel.

love the Atari games but it really seemed like Pole Position was the game best suited for this car, and Elon even tweeted that he was testing it out. a bit disappointed it wasn't included.

This is Tesla we're talking about. They never release everything at once, it needs to be like a TV series. How else would they keep us drooling for the next episode update?
