Why does everything have to be so hard? Example: my sister and her boyfriend came over to help me get a new doorknob so I could lock my door whenever Mom was being so annoying and asking for her pills so she can kill herself with them. The next 2 hours were spent trying to install the thing. Another example: I spent about an hour and a half last night trying to get the shooting in my new Intellivision game just the way I want it to.
For those who want Berzerk on the INTV, you'll have to wait longer. I wanted to make My History Teacher Ate Lemons for the Intellivision. I gave up on the Atari 2600 version because what I wanted to do got 263 scanlines part of the time. And I didn't think it would have been a fun game anyway. So I took the Berzerk code I had, changed the sprites a little, made it so you could run around while the bullet was traveling, and put an already made title screen on it.
So now I'm working on a new adventure game. Only trouble is, I don't know how to make one. I figure I'll just do it as I go along, adding stuff. Like I was doing with Frank the Fruit Fly. So anyway that's what I've been doing. And I can't find my Intellivision catalogs. And why does River Raid for the Intellivision have to be so expensive?
