Garage, sale

Posted by atari2600land, 29 June 2015 · 53 views

I went through the garage and decided to clean up in there and get rid of games I will never play ever again. I have a bunch of stuff to take to Game Crazy now. I decided to get some more games for the Dreamcast. I have almost everything I would want (that I discovered.) I ended up buying Bust-A-Move 4 and Hoyle Casino on ePay, paying more than I probably...

Bubba Rises From the Dead

Posted by atari2600land, 28 June 2015 · 59 views

So I thought it had been a while. Maybe my computer will make the old Bubba's Buck Blastin' video work again. Nope. It stopped at 9:20. I decided to make the settings on my computer be best performance. That still didn't work. So what I did is deleted everything before where it froze, made a new project and selected that. Now I had two videos. It took a l...

Tee Off!

Posted by atari2600land, in Dreamcast game thoughts 28 June 2015 · 51 views

I wanted to say nice things about it, but in the end, it's just another piece of &^$ game designed by ^&%heads who can't program their way out of a paper bag. Why do I say that? The putting part is so horribly programmed, it usually takes me 3 putts to get it in the hole. Because the statistics about the hole are wrong and it's just really a lousy...

I survived

Posted by atari2600land, 26 June 2015 · 75 views

I survived the power outage! Thankfully it was only out for about an hour, between 10:45 and noon. Luckily, since right now at 2pm it's 94 degrees. They're forecasting 100 for today and tomorrow, so I'm glad the power is back on. I played my GBA and Pokemon Mini all the time. I've been watching the Weather Channel. The town called Pee Pee, Ohio had thunde...

A new anthill for Gi-Ant

Posted by atari2600land, 25 June 2015 · 67 views

Worked on Insecticide again. For some reason I still don't know, I couldn't get a new background working in Gi-Ant's arena. I tried and took a break and then retried, but nothing seemed to do anything. So I ditched it and took another picture, which magically worked somehow. It's supposed to be an anthill in the background, but it looks more like a mounta...

power outage

Posted by atari2600land, 24 June 2015 · 73 views

I just learned that the power company is going to shut off our power all day Friday for some stupid project. And that just happens to be one of the days where it will be the hottest: Possible triple-digit heat. I don't know if I am going to survive, I might get heat stroke and die, then Mom can sue and get millions of dollars for PGE's stupid stupid sched...

Chief Chef Changes

Posted by atari2600land, 23 June 2015 · 62 views

Work continues on Chief Chef. Something odd just happened. I was typing away and suddenly the window just closed for no apparent reason. So I'm reluctant to type a huge long thesis. I didn't like the pink score, so I replaced it with a cyan one. Now there's a blue score (your current one) and the cyan (highest one). Even though I have 400 bytes left, I ha...

Chief Chef

Posted by atari2600land, 22 June 2015 · 60 views

How quickly my priorities change. I went back to work on Chief Chef for the Odyssey 2. I redesigned the chef. Not only that, I made him face the right way. Then I noticed when you move the joystick the opposite direction, the chef sometimes was backwards. I fixed this. It took a couple of hours, but I think I did it. I tested it on real hardware. It is go...

The Garlic Fights Back

Posted by atari2600land, 21 June 2015 · 83 views

I added a little scene to episode 2 of the Celery show. In it, the garlic is watching TV, which is showing the celery's rampage, when suddenly, garlic hears a beep. He goes into the Garlic Central Command and on the control panel screen, Leader Garlic tells the garlic to press the big red button that says on. So he does. What does the big red button do? D...

Captain Bruce update

Posted by atari2600land, 20 June 2015 · 90 views

Here's an update on Captain Bruce for those of you wondering. Here's what I need to do:
+ Make overlays. I designed the overlay, so at least that's done.
+ Check to see if the game will work on a real Odyssey 1. This is something I can't do because I don't have a real Odyssey 1. If you are interested in playtesting, PM me.
So that probably leaves y...
