To-Do Redo

Posted by Nathan Strum, 17 April 2007 · 3,337 views

To-Do Lists
Well, it's time to consolidate my To-Do list, so I can actually update the thing without getting hopelessly confused. :D

Homebrew stuff:
  • Manual and label for another 2600 homebrew - In progress
  • Sprites for Moon Cresta homebrew - In progress
  • Sprites for still-yet-another-arcade-port - In progress
  • Sprites for yet-another-arcade-port - In progress
  • Atari logo on a Mac folder icon - Starting soon
  • Sprites for Wizard of Wor Arcade - In progress
  • Revised sprite for Thomas - In progress
  • Tank sprites for Manuel's version of Tron - Shouldn't take long to do this one
  • Additional (revised) illustrations for the RPS manual - In progress
Major projects:
  • Stella at 20 30 - In Progress
  • Update the 2600 Video Mods page - 2008 (this is going to be a huge update, which is why it keeps getting pushed back)
  • Move MacMAME.net movie reviews to new website - Winter
  • Update "Joysticks" movie review - Winter (pushed back from MacMAME.net's anniversary)
  • Finish and add new movie review - Winter (pushed back from MacMAME.net's anniversary)
Finished:On-hold:
  • Revised bitmap for Bob - On hold (I really should wrap this one up)
  • Create GarageBand sample set of 2600 sounds - Someday (one of the previously mentioned overly-ambitious projects)
  • Finish manual for RPS - When game resumes development
  • Finish manual for Man Goes Down - When game resumes development
  • "How-To" tutorial for creating sprites - Eventually
  • In-game art for Chetiry - Game development on hold
  • Even more Stupid Game Ideas - As time permits
  • Sprites for 2600 sports game - When game resumes development
  • Sprites for yet another unannounced 2600 homebrew - When game resumes development
Canceled:
  • Game-related project mentioned in other thread's comments - canceled
  • Special art for the MacMAME.net's 9th anniversary - ran out of time*
  • Maid sprite for Bob's Elevators Amiss - not needed
*For the 9th anniversary art, I'd planned an update of something I'd done in the past. For my 2nd anniversary, I'd created a "2" MacMAME cabinet:

For the 4th anniversary, I made a more elaborate "4" cabinet, with the "TH" made out of arcade flyers:

So for the 9th year, I was going to make a row of cabinets, with the one on the far right looking like a "9" (the others being a "6, "7", and "8"). But I simply ran out of time to do all the modeling and textures required for it. This was as far as I got with it:

Oh well, the best laid plans and such... :roll:

One thing I did manage to do recently, was make a fake box and label and a manual for UFO Patrol. This was to earn some extra points in the 2600 High Score Club, and I had some fun making "authentic" badly-translated, low-budget pirate game artwork. :D




That's way too many unannounced homebrews. ;)

Thanks for your continued interest in Chetiry; it increases the odds of my getting back to it when I can.

That's way too many unannounced homebrews. :D

They've actually been mentioned here and there in various polls and threads. But they haven't been officially announced as works-in-progress, so I figured I'd better not spill the beans, to keep people from bugging the programmer(s). ;)

Thanks for your continued interest in Chetiry; it increases the odds of my getting back to it when I can.

I hope so. I think you have a great start on it! :D

Update: I've got the sprite list for the second unannounced homebrew.

Looks like it's time to fire up MAME again. ;)
  • Report
You're sure it's unannounced? It almost can only be either Rip Off or Juno First, no? ;)
  • Report
No. ;)

The sprites for both of those are finished.
  • Report
Hm... now, now...

Pac-Man already has sprites, Tetris doesn't need any, TJs game is the inertia senso no MAME game. I assume johnnywc will finish Rip Off first, before starting into Moon Cresta. supercat doesn't do ports. Squish'em is no MAME title either and Bob is busy otherwize anyway. Rally X is on hold, so is Superbug I assume. Dragon Defense Squad is no MAME port either.

Hm... hm... must be missing something...

No! Either it's some Coleco or bBasic title, or it must be Superbug ;)
  • Report
SuperBug is (as far as I know) done, graphic-wise.

I don't work on Coleco titles (since I don't own a Colecovision), and haven't been asked to do any work on bBasic games.

And one of your other assumptions is wrong, as well. ;)

:D

Rally X is on hold

Who was working on Rally X? I was thinking about doing that once I finish helping David with his hack.
  • Report
batari posted a demo some time ago, but stopped working on it.

So... it's Moon Cresta. Cool! ;)

I don't care about speculations, I want results. Reviews that is! ;)

I'm still working on some reviews for the last batch of games I got. It's taking me awhile to get through them all. I try to give each game enough play time for a fair review.

I ain't sayin' nothin', except that one of the games is most definitely not Moon Cresta. ;)

But that's the fun thing. Otherwize I could just send a PM and ask ;)

I want results.


Me too. Where's the next update for Paradroid? :D

Thanks to brandnew german laws, I'll soon be enjoying a two month "maternity" leave, so I might be able to work some on it ;)

My job (and I) just got stupidly outsourced to EDS, so everything is pretty busy now.

And no "maternity". ;)

Ooooh - so the one that's not Moon Cresta is Wizard of Wor ;)

Those new player sprites look excellent, can't wait to see the rest :D
