Christmas comes early for my TV

Posted by atari2600land, 20 December 2014 · 33 views

Hi. Perhaps Comcast isn't as evil as I thought it was. 2 new channels have come to the Salem Oregon area. The first one is channel 72, WGN. This is a bit weird since it has been on McMinnville's Comcast line-up, but never Salem's. Perhaps Chicago or the network had a major beef with Salem, because it had never been on the cable line-up here ever since WGN...

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

Posted by atari2600land, 19 December 2014 · 61 views

Am working on Jack and the Beanstalk for the PS1. Am at a good stopping point now though. I need some questions answered so I posted in the almost dead PSX-Dev forums. As it turns out, I need to name stuff different from the h file than what variable is in the h file. Now that I know that, I think I can keep on doing this. I'm running out of room so I ask...

Playing with Intellivision

Posted by atari2600land, 18 December 2014 · 74 views

So I took a few hours to play with Intellivision programming. This is a result. The beginning of Insecticide for the Intellivision. I don't know whether or not I could be able to complete it. But I would like to do something to train me and help me with the VB version I want to finish. This might be a good first step. As of right now, Gi-Ant can walk arou...

CD space

Posted by atari2600land, 17 December 2014 · 64 views

I burned a music cd of music I made. As it turned out, the cd had one second left of space. I say that because I once made a Christmas cd compilation that was 79:56. Although I once tried to burn another CD on another computer that was 79:56 and it wouldn't let me, so I had to delete one second worth of the song to make it 79:55. Which brings me to this:...

Not done

Posted by atari2600land, in gosub intv 16 December 2014 · 76 views

I looked at the GoSub thread and noticed that apparently, most of the 1-player INTV games can be controlled by the second controller as well. So that meant I had to curse and yell and scream trying to get the warp code right so it could be used on both controllers. It took a few hours, and it's sort of done, although you could put 2 on the first controlle...

Intellivision Ideas

Posted by atari2600land, 15 December 2014 · 82 views

Since GoSub is finished or about to be, I want to start work on another Intellivision game. The only problem is, I don't have any ideas for any! You know what the INTV needs though? More puzzle games. It already has a pinball game. Oh, and going through my collection, which is far from complete though, I see a lack of also platformer games. So perhaps I w...

Sunday Morning

Posted by atari2600land, 14 December 2014 · 76 views

So I spent Saturday night working on my PlayStation game. I was trying to get in a new background for Jack to walk in front of. For some reason, Jack wanted to flicker. I kept working for a few hours, trying to move different things and at 11:30pm FINALLY made him not flicker. I had been working on a few new crossword puzzles. I'm working on the fifth one...

Why am I doing this?

Posted by atari2600land, 12 December 2014 · 92 views

I decided to work on Jack and the Beanstalk again. I don't know why for two reasons. #1 - Nobody wants to help me to put sound in my program. and #2 - Even if I do get sound in it, I can't just burn copies and have them work on my PS1. (Perhaps I should just move this project to the Dreamcast...) Even if I did burn a copy on a CD, I'd still need a mod to...

I feel guilty for buying stuff on eBay that people are "watching." I'm all like "sorry, but I want this and I have the money to get it." Anyway, while I am adding to my 32X collection, and I know I don't have enough money for either Spiderman or World Series Baseball, I'd like to get as much of a complete collection as I can. I found my 32X in the garage....

Aaron-eous Zones

Posted by atari2600land, 10 December 2014 · 90 views

So I've been working on the Aaron game. It took at least a few hours to get characters to move up. It seems like it's a tiny game that doesn't have very much code, until you realize that it's 24k worth of code and 1,600 bytes have been used up out of 2,000. Man, it sure doesn't take very long to use the space up. I barely squeezed Nice Ice in 2k. Besides...
