I checked my old cds from magazines and I found a demo of Fallout.
Since this game was praised by many players, I decided to try it.
To play this demo on windows 10, set to windows 95 compatible.

Fallout is a game about a desolate world when few people survives.
The little village runs by two gangs: fools and crypts....

Chickens on the loose

Some people shouldn't allow chickens to go everywhere.

There are families who have cats and dogs, you know.

Trash day: what is it?

Posted by Serguei2, 16 May 2019 · 38 views

Tomorrow is trash day. When neighboroughts throw away their stuff, something pays me attention.

Someone throws away a painting. Probably his/her first try.
I can't tell what is it and who drawn it.
The author thinks this painting does not have any values and belongs to trash.
Maybe he/she has personal reasons to not keep it....

Scary Cat

Sometimes, I think cats are aliens from another planet.

Windows 10 updated :(

Posted by Serguei2, 30 April 2019 · 73 views

When I turn on my laptop, it spends all morning to update windows 10 then, 

It starts asking stupid/private questions.
I do my best to bypass this polls, but not, I need to answer them.
Once it's finished, I noted Java is gone.
Any programs who need java won't work. So I need to reinstall it.
It's a bad day.  :mad:

It's Kung Fu Master but I don't want it since I don't have an Atari 2600.

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu

Posted by Serguei2, 27 April 2019 · 48 views

I watched a trailer of a upcoming movie.

Pikachu's voice is more mature here and he speaks like us.
I wonder if this movie is based from Detective Pikachu from 3DS game.
I can't wait to read reviews of this movie.

The very first image of black holes

Sound, Fight, Scroll and a new demo to play

Posted by Serguei2, in Uncategorized, Programming Colecovision, My brawler game 25 March 2019 · 132 views

I worked on my brawler game today.

In this demo, you can defeat all bad guys, they won't attack you.
I decided to make the game scrolling and reworked on the backgrounds.
If you think it's easy to make decent backgrounds, take a look at this code:

It's a mess for some who are not familiar with programming in C....

New 3DS scares cats

Posted by Serguei2, 10 March 2019 · 80 views

It's annoying to take pictures/videos with my New 3DS, specialy taking pictures with cats.
No matters I turn down the volume, and select attention sound to none, there always has a sound when taking pictures
scaring cats. Most of time, i can only take one picture.
I also have an old digiital camera, but again, it make noise when zooming and...

Tutankham: pfff

Posted by Serguei2, 03 March 2019 · 173 views

Tutankham: pfff Tutankham is a good potential game ruined by the gameplay.
You are an explorer, collecting keys and treasures. In the way, there are monsters in the burial chambers to shoot them.
The problem is, you can shoot left and right but not up and down.
I will make a similar game where the hero shoots all four directions, collecting treasures...

A DOS computer today?

Posted by Serguei2, 25 February 2019 · 126 views

HP computers offer three OS installed to choose from:
- Windows
- Linux
- FreeDOS
If most people choose Windows or Linux, I start questioning why FreeDOS is also offert.
FreeDOS: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FreeDOS
I wonder why some manufacturers decide to support FreeDOS as well.
Today, most peop...

Tarzan Tarzan is maybe not a beat'em up or a brawler game but it's very close.
The goal of this game is to free monkeys from mad apes/hunters and yelling in the top of a temple.
You can't kill anybody here, you can only knock down them unless they fall in the traps on in water.

Like I said, you can knock down ennemies but they event...

Reached 50th sprite + split codes + limited library

Posted by Serguei2, in Uncategorized, Programming Colecovision, My brawler game 11 February 2019 · 139 views

I just reached 50th sprite for my brawler game.

14 more to go and I'll run out of sprites. OUCH!  :o
I never thought a brawler game would take so many sprites.
I checked the 10years, a program included with the compi...

Now I can play Stargate Network offline

Posted by Serguei2, 28 January 2019 · 113 views

I'm tired always being online when I play Stargate Network.
Actually I'm an offline player unless I play multiplayer games.
The problem with Stargate Network, the launcher always check update before playing the game.
If the launcher fails, the game won't start.
So I took a look at the game directory and I found an executable file. I t...

Problems with wifi band 5 GHZ I used

Posted by Serguei2, 14 January 2019 · 152 views

I noted few weeks ago, YouTube won't work anymore. 
At this time, I installed Stargate Network, a stargate simulator.
I first thing it was the responsable of this problem until I noted I can't go the internet with my new 3ds.
After few tries, I set my wifi to 2.4 ghz. Now I can go to the internet with my new 3ds and the problem w...

I'd better play Tetris on Game Boy

Posted by Serguei2, 10 January 2019 · 154 views

I went to pharmacy today. The first thing I noted is a bin full of Game Pokes, a handheld game with 100 games and they are black and white systems.

This handheld system uses a battery-watch to run.
Based on screenshot, the graphic seems to be poorer compared to the Game Boy.
These systems are sold for only $9.99.
If Ga...
