Sno-Cross Championship Racing

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 21 October 2016 · 38 views

I have never EVER seen a game this difficult to control. Perhaps it's because snow is slippery, but I suspect it's because the programmers don't know how to make a snowmobile react to your turns very well. You turn and end up zigzagging along the course, stopping because you slammed into the wall, so you have to back up and get situated correctly. I didn'...

iOS programming - major milestone reached

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 21 October 2016 · 34 views

My iOS game has reached a major milestone - I've linked the level creator to the play level so it's now possible to create a level and play it.  In theory a lot of the remaining coding should be relatively standard and therefore easier.
Hopefully I can get my son and a few other friends / coworkers to use it to start creating levels

JediMatt42's -- Plug-N-Play 32K for the TI-99/4A

TI-99/4A, 32K, JediMatt42 and 2 more...

Back in the day there were a ton of TI-99/4A consoles released into the wild, most of them went 'unexpanded', many ended up in the back of a closet never to see daylight for decades.  Why?  Because the system add-ons were very expensive, so by the time prices came down, TI had abandoned the home computer market and people had moved on to newer,...

I don't normally do "react" videos but I'll give this a shot.

RealSports Curling

Other projects and my real job have been keeping me away from this project, but I've made some interesting progress.
 I have the first bits of interaction in place, the aiming cursor is now active and can be moved with the joystick.  I'm planning a 3-stage shot system. First, you aim across the hogline, similar to the way Intellivis...

Possible Grade IV Glioma

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 16 October 2016 · 109 views

Continued from my previous blog entry . My mother had two CAT scans and a special MRI on Thursday. Then she had the biopsy on Friday. The neurosurgeon said that it could take over a week to find out for sure, but based on his experience, it looks like a Grade IV glioma to him.
The neurosurgeon showed my sisters some images from the latest MRI an...

Slot car computer control with a TI 99/4A computer

TI 99/4A, Slot car and 1 more...

Slot car racing sets have always fascinated me, and I have owned a few over the years. Unfortunately, it was always difficult to find opponents to race against beyond just a few runs. I have dabbled many times with the idea of a computer controlled opponent over the years, and finally decided to tackle it as a demo project for the 2016 Chicago Internation...

fire TV

Posted by SpiceWare in SpiceWare's Blog, 13 October 2016 · 142 views

My fire TV arrived today, it's quite small:

I don't have a new TV yet, and my old TV won't support it, so I have it plugged into one of my 4K monitors.  4K content looks awesome on it, as though I were looking out a window:

I've resubscribed to HBO NOW and had an unexpected surprise - another 30 day free trial :D :

I did ha...

Implementing the MIDI Implementation Chart

Posted by Pack007 in Out of the Pack, 12 October 2016 · 81 views

Playing MIDI notes has turned out to be quite easy for Atari BASIC through the RS232-Arduino-MIDI OUT (RAMO) interface (see previous posts in this blog).  Most MIDI instruments have additional functions beyond  receiving the note ON and note OFF commands.   Each MIDI instrument should come with a MIDI Implementation Chart (MIDI-IC) tha...

It's The Beard, Right? - OR - I AM A VEGAN!

It's The Beard, Right? - OR - I AM A VEGAN! Yesterday was my day for universal confusion!! The morning started off so clean and simple!  No one in the known world wanted to be my 'friend' and so I was kinda' shocked when a (I guess Indian) man 'liked' one of my comments about veganism and the fact (like science has 'facts'!?!) that plants always survive mass extinctions.  Being the 'oh wh...

It's fair to say I've neglected this blog. But now I'm using it, so that's cool. You probably shouldn't expect updates to be regular.
I'm finally taking the first steps in writing an actual game for the VCS, and I'm doing it from the inside out, more or less. Making sure the individual effects and modules work, and that I thoroughly understand them...

Friends for a reason, a season, and a lifetime.. with Facebook.

So as a friend of mine said tonight, people are brought into our life for a reason , a season , and a lifetime .
Facebook brings all our friends together in one place, giving new definition of the above statement.
A Reason : Ok, I remember the REASON why we stopped talking....
A Season : Conversation goes something like this....

Hello, just got a lot of ataris one was suppose to be a heavy. the shell is but the boards are for a sixer light.
Not sure if I should be upset or not. I knew this day would come when I run into a problem like this.
I'm most likely just going to hang on to this case and use the guts for parts for other consoles.
I would assume that co...

Returned to programming

Folks, I have wanted an "ultimate" Atari for a while now, and for me that is : VBXE, 65c816 and hdd solution.  And it will have a flat screen monitor.  And it will be connected to the internet.  These solutions have extended memory and SDX on them - that's implied.  But some things that might be in another's ultimate atari, are not in...
