Is DVD still popular?

Posted by Serguei2, 15 September 2016 · 151 views

I bought a Sony Vaio in 2009 with Blu-Ray drive.
Seven years later, DVDs are still popular.
I thought Blu-Ray drives prices are dropped but there're still have DVD players today.

A room editor for my colecovision game

Posted by Serguei2, in Programming Colecovision 30 August 2016 · 106 views

I made a room editor for my colecovision game.
It would be easier to design rooms.

With this editor, you can export codes to make the game like this.

Just copy and past these codes to your programs.
I noted CCI supports only strings with 256 characters. But this is still fine.
Instead writing 24 lines...

Now my room is more enjoyable.

The colecovision palette is limited and hard to make a nice picture.

Still learning Colecovision

Posted by Serguei2, in Programming Colecovision 16 August 2016 · 119 views

It's a long way to learn how to make Colecovision games.
At least, I made few progress.

This level layout is boring for the moment but I will improve it.
I first want to make Atari 2600 games but the 2600 is not my taste because,  the joystick only has one button.
The play field on 2600 is just blank...

Good thing, I still have a sd television set

Posted by Serguei2, 25 June 2016 · 142 views

I noted new devices supported UHD televisions. I'm not sure if X-Box One, PS4 and WII-U support it but the next generation of consoles will.
I still use my SD television to watch programs.
If I need a new television set, it would be an uhd , when the price becomes reasonable.

It's how the game industry works today

Posted by Serguei2, 23 May 2016 · 445 views

It was the time when you buy a game, you have a physical game and the manual.
Back to home, you start playing the new game. The manual might help you need it.
What do you have now?
The games are available only on the internet. You have to download them. Create an account on the game websites. Because you can't play if you don't...
