Colecovision stuff again

Posted by Serguei2, in Programming Colecovision 15 December 2018 · 23 views

I played Popeye on Colecovision.
The first thing I noted is the witch/woman throwing bottles always displays in the square.

I think she drawn in tiles instead sprites because Colecovision's limits.
Popeye is still fun playing it. 
Good thing to know.

A brawl/fight game on Colecovision

Posted by Serguei2, in Programming Colecovision 14 December 2018 · 36 views

I played Lethal Weapon on gameboy and I wonder if there is a fight/brawl game for colecovision.
After messing with codes, I managed to get something.

Yeah!!!! It's my brawl/fight game.
Colecovision has limited colour to choose from. Even if it has 15 colors, most of them are different of reds, greens and blues.

Etrian Odyssey IV arrived

Posted by Serguei2, 10 December 2018 · 42 views

I just received Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the titan for 3DS from mail.

For $40, it's a bargain. Most of time, it's $80 or even higher.
Of course, I could buy a digital version of the game for lower price, but I like physical cart than digital.
That's why I bought the game from eBay.
I started to think Ebay is bette...

Gameboy Popeye not available

Posted by Serguei2, 14 November 2018 · 86 views

I found an old letter from Funcoland saying Popeye on Gameboy is not available and it cannot be shipped.

I played Popeye on NES and I'd like to play it on Gameboy.
Time flies fast.

I love Stargate SG1 but

Posted by Serguei2, 08 November 2018 · 114 views

I'm pleased when Space was on free preview and I rewatched Stargate SG1 again.
So I started to watch them again.
It is a great show but ..

Space broadcasted Stargate SG1 10 episodes in a week, I lost the interest of the show quickly, even if I can record and watch the episodes later. But 10 episodes a week is too much for me....

New computer Windows 10

Posted by Serguei2, 27 October 2018 · 127 views

I bought a new computer recently with windows 10 installed.
The first thing I noted is Cortana asks me to tell something each time I turn on the computer.
Why did Microsoft put Cortana when the computer starts? It's annoying!
It could be an application when I want to talk with it.
The most tools I used from Vista still work on...

Minecraft New Nintendo 3DS crashes

Posted by Serguei2, 05 August 2018 · 180 views

Minecraft can crash on PC and it also can crash on New Nintendo 3DS as well.
Great job Mojang. Your game is full of bugs. When glitches are fixed, new ones appear.


My Vaio is dead

Posted by Serguei2, 01 August 2018 · 173 views

If I didn't release anything, that's because my laptop is dead,
Even if I made back-ups for some stuff, any colecovision projects I'm working, are lost.

New Nintendo 3DS one flaw.

The New Nintendo 3DS has only bad flaw:
You need to remove screws and the cover to change the mini sd card.

Zdoom + Gamepad

I took two days to find the right combination to play zdoom with the gamepad.
Zdoom is a free engine to play classic fps games. It supports doom, hexen, strife, ...
Good thing.  The joystick has evolved since Atari 2600.

Minecraft in glorious 16 colours

Posted by Serguei2, 15 May 2018 · 313 views

I decided to build my own texture pack in Minecraft.
I downloaded Paint.Net because it supports transparent color, Microsoft Paint does not support transparent.
After trials and errors, I managed to build my texture pack in 16 EGA colours. 
I saw texture packs based on NES, so why not in EGA.
The reason I used Beta 1.7 is...
