GoSub programming: day 2

Posted by atari2600land, in gosub intv 16 September 2014 · 9 views

A lot has happened since yesterday. I put in a level, but I can't figure out how to draw levels yet. I also added collision detection for the seaweed and the treasure chest. I had to change the sub's color from white to a light pink color because I can't figure out how to make it white again. I want to make the screen not flash again when it's redrawing t...

GoSub for Intellivision

Posted by atari2600land, in gosub intv 15 September 2014 · 41 views

OK, I finally figured out what the problem was and why I kept getting errors all the time. As it turned out, my as1600 was not the most updated one. So I got the most updated one, and the required roms for emulation, and I started on a GoSub version for Intellivision. After a few tries, I got a white sub going from left to right, the word "GOSUB" in white...

Vegetables that start with the letter C

So I'm making another weird sounds CD. So far this album I've employed an Odyssey 2 emulator and an Amiga emulator. I used the Say program to make the computer "say" stuff, then I garbled it up until it made weird noises. I don't know if I talked about my project called "scalene triangles abounding" here yet. I made one album and called it "corn." Now I'm...

Star Wars: Clone Wars

Posted by atari2600land, 13 September 2014 · 75 views

I just got this game for the Didj in the mail. I already had one but it was sealed. And this already opened one was only $6 including shipping, so I bought it. I tested it. Apparently the Didj didn't like it the first few times. I got to experience what it does when you put in a game it doesn't like: It gives you a message to try again, then automatically...

Super Mario 64

Posted by atari2600land, 11 September 2014 · 73 views

There is no more time for Klax. I just got Klax for Game Gear in the mail today. The game works OK, but the gameplay itself is too hard. It would have been OK to just leave the amount of colors at 4 or even 5, but the fact that there are more than a dozen? And only a 25 space hole? Are we sure the creators of the game are not insane? I got to wave 12 and...

Why must I live where I do? Here in Oregon, I feel almost like I live in the middle of nowhere. Everything I want on eBay is on the other side of the nation. I decided I want to get an already opened copy of Star Wars: Clone Wars for the Didj. It's cheap, and it's free shipping, but it's in North Carolina! I found another one, it's in Georgia! The only on...

2 games in 1 (part 2)

Posted by atari2600land, 09 September 2014 · 58 views

So after about an hour of trying to do so, I figured out on my own how to put two games on to the same cart. I tested it on real hardware and it works great. In my code I made up, pressing 2 will get to the other game while all other button presses (including 1) will go to the beginning of Boobs. Boobs is 2k and the other thing is 2k, and I merged them in...

2 games in 1

Posted by atari2600land, 08 September 2014 · 71 views

Well, one of them really isn't a game. (hint!) I decided and feel that Boobs for the Odyssey 2 wasn't good enough to stand on its own, so I decided to make a companion program for it. I'm going to keep it a secret for now. I also decided that Odyssey 2 is better than the Atari 2600. Even though Atari 2600 has 128 colors and Odyssey 2 only has a select few...

It is time for Klax...

Posted by atari2600land, 07 September 2014 · 91 views

Guess what I saw on eBay. Besides Klax. I saw a Sonic Blast sale for $7. So I bought it. This game usually goes for about $20 or more. But my grand total was half that. So then I bought Klax for Game Gear for $6. Both are Game Gear games. I'm back to them. "Casino Fun Pak" finally came in the mail yesterday. I don't really know why I bought Klax. I guess...

Super Mario Bros. 3 comic re"boot"

Posted by atari2600land, 06 September 2014 · 69 views

So I was looking through my old computer and I saw some comic books I did about Super Mario Bros. 3 in 2012. I don't know whether the term "e-comic book" has been invented, but I have made a couple. Right now I'm working on issue 3 of "Super Mario Bros. 3," In this issue, Mario and Luigi learn about Kuribo's Shoe. (It's called "Goomba's Shoe" in this issu...
