I had the goal for the revive mode being done for this Sunday, but since I added Revive, added GameOver, added 2nd player and implemented the console switches... I might as well do an update now :D

Left Difficulty will eventually turn on/off the background music if I get around to adding any. It sets it's flag properly but there's obviousl...

Let's see if we can do a weekly release on here until I get it to the point of it being fully playable, at which point I'll officially switch over to the 7800 forum. ;) 

This doesn't look too different from last week, but it's now able to load waves from a sdata structure.  Easy to add new waves by setting things like time to the...

graze, 7800basic
The name of this game will likely change before it's finished. It just describes the goal of the game for the most part.
Right now it's showing the maximum number of free-roaming enemies the engine can do before causing slowdown. The plotvalues and boxcollisions are a big cause of this but there's a lot of 7800basic commands I can re-write into ass...

I suck at sprites.

7800basic, sprites
So while trying to do up semi-humanoid characters, I realized I suck at doing this. More than I anticipated that is. So, let's just BS an armless blob of a monster with stubby feet and call it the hero!  It's going to be "fun" trying to figure out what this guy's powers are going to be. XD
Going to be more fun trying to figure out what kind of...

Horizontal Scrolling

Posted by Mord, 07 March 2015 · 292 views
So a week overdue, and I only really made progress on the horizontal scrolling. I didn't add in solid wall type things yet as I was trying to fix up bugs and the like. You'd be surprised at some of the weird things that would happen...
Going to clean the code up later today, but first, must sleep....
Now that sleep is over, I'v...

Random Updates

7800, 7800Basic, Vocaloid, SoNiKa and 1 more...
Admittedly, I tend to post random updates on my Livejournal account far more often than on here. Which is questionable in preferences given probably more people browse this blog, even accidentally!
Anyway, it seems I've been swallowed up by 7800Basic. Started looking through it's sample programs and reading over RandomTerrain's online guide for i...

New Computer Project

Sharing a post I made to Livejournal just to potentially get more responses. I'm mostly just looking for suggestions and opinions at this stage, I'll be doing my own research throughout the summer anyway before I start trying to buy components likely 1/month.

And now for something completely different.

circusP, shatter, vocaloid
So like, I've been listening to a lot of vocaloid and utauloid music lately. :P
And so, since I've been thinking about trying to get my own projects back in order and to try to use this blog regularly again, I figured this is as good an excuse as any to learn how the media tag works. Here, listen to a song by CircusP. :P

I seem to have started regaining a desire to make the 2600 Do Stuff.Most likely I'm going to try to start from scratch on the whole Action RPG/Maze Realms idea. Trying to get the old program to do anything new generally resulted in a lost month of bug fixing with nothing done.Dasm and crimson editor is installed again, and I've re-bookmarked the o...

Close to a Year

Posted by Mord, 06 May 2012 · 438 views
You know I had almost forgotten about having a blog on Atari Age. It's not from the lack of visiting the site, as shown by my string of posts in the 7800 and Modern Gaming forums.

My Livejournal isn't doing much better for activity however, if that's worth anything. ;)

Don't really have much to say this time either as I haven't been...
