I freely admit I haven't played a Pokemon game since Pikachu could ride a surfboard.

Christmas time again.

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 01 September 2015 · 30 views

It's September 1, and what's more, I feel in a Christmas-y mood. I'm listening to my Christmas music. I got out my Christmas books out and have been reading them. Right now I'm listening to Christmas Dragnet. I'd love to hang up Christmas lights and get the trees out. But it's too early. First we have Halloween to get through! Perhaps I should listen to M...

Spectrum +2 Grey Restoration

Posted by IainGrimm in IainGrimm's Blog, 01 September 2015 · 50 views

I had been meaning to do this for a while now, show what I have been doing to restore the Grey Spectrum +2 I received around 3 months ago. First off I had to retro brite the machine, as most will know the whitish machines tend to go a yellowish brown, grey machines tend to go a dull moss green color. Retro Brite is a handy thing to know, everyon...

A fight that even the Bubsy haters let him win.  :P

Tempest MAME 2015 - new PC

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 28 August 2015 · 85 views

A while ago my son asked when I was going to fix the Tempest cabinet.  The fire cleanup crew removed the PC I was using to the Tempest cabinet and insurance wrote it off (although I did get the hard drive back).  So the first step is to obtain a PC.  MAME is still primarily a single threaded app, so I used https://www.cpubenchmark.net/...

Mega Man 3 (And Why All Others Are Inferior)

Posted by bomberpunk in bomberpunk's Blog, 26 August 2015 · 124 views

[#034] Mega Man 3 is the greatest Mega Man game ever created and I'm going to prove it here and now. Many of you favor Mega Man 2, and okay yeah it's a fantastic game with killer music, but  MM3 is that and then some.
For starters, it introduces two very important characters in the MM Universe. Mega's canine companion, Rush, was perfect in MM3...

Third 6TB drive installed in the Drobo

Posted by SpiceWare in SpiceWare's Blog, 25 August 2015 · 118 views

At the start of the year I moved a bunch of MKV files off the Drobo onto the 3TB drive hooked up to my Mac Pro.  
Since then that 3TB drive has filled up, so I debated setting up a Drobo for my Mac Pro.  I decided not to as the Thunderbolt Drobo's were last updated back in 2012. I'm holding off in hopes of a faster Drobo - the current Dr...

I'll play through a medium sized maze , easy difficulty , using the new Very Random (VR) mode.  Press R key at title screen to toggle it on/off before pressing start. "VR!" will appear on the screen when active. 
Well Looky There! I found one of the secret bat eggs...

Pluto: Stay tuned

"Why hasn’t this website included any new images from New Horizons since July? As planned, New Horizons itself is on a bit of a post-flyby break, currently sending back lower data-rate information collected by the energetic particle, solar wind and space dust instruments. It will resume sending flyby images and other data in early September.

Lesson 3a: Better Temperature Conversion Words

Posted by Lee Stewart in Learning fbForth 2.0, 15 August 2015 · 115 views

Lesson 3a:  Better Temperature Conversion Words We can write better temperature conversion words than we did at the end of the last lesson.  If you thought that the words using /MOD were contrived to introduce /MOD , you were mostly on target.  To obviate the necessity of using /MOD , all we need to do is to manage the dividend before division by adding half of the divisor.  As bef...

Inside Out - Spoiler-free movie review

Posted by Nathan Strum in (Insert stupid Blog name here), 14 August 2015 · 149 views
Movies, Animation

Pixar has an interesting history of making terrible trailers for what turn out to be great films. The trailers for Inside Out did nothing to pique my interest in seeing the film. But at the reception to this year's Producers' Show , I talked with some people from the studio who were genuinely excited about the movie. Now, if the people who have to spend...

Analog’s Boot Camp Table of Contents?

Posted by Pack007 in Out of the Pack, 14 August 2015 · 135 views

Analog published a column dedicated to teaching assembly language programming. Boot Camp appeared as 42 articles spanning a wide range of topics with many tips, tricks and example code. If Boot Camp was compiled into a book, this might be the table of contents or at least I’m hoping that it helps the next time I’m looking for information or co...

Games of Atari - Intellivision Captures Underway... Finally!

Posted by FujiSkunk in FujiSkunk's Blog, 13 August 2015 · 111 views

At long last, I am working on the website again.  Earlier this year I commissioned another round of work from the most excellent Electronic Sentimentalities , getting an Intellivision modded for composite and an Atari 5200 modded for S-video.  I've had them back for over a month now, but, you know, other commitments.  Distractions.  S...

A/Rexx PoC: using a compound variable as both associative and indexed

Posted by OLD CS1 in OLD CS1's Blog, 12 August 2015 · 111 views

A/Rexx PoC: using a compound variable as both associative and indexed Actually, I am not really certain what to call what I am doing here.  Essentially, I need a table of values which can be referenced both by number (ordinal) and the value itself (associative.)
I reach back to the TI-99 ISR (interrupt service routine) sound lists for a practical example.  I want to create a transform which will increase or...

Episode Guide

Posted by Shinto in The Atari Jaguar Game by Game Podcast, 10 August 2015 · 128 views

I figured there was no reason to withhold my episode plan for anyone curious about which games were coming up, beyond what I list off at the end of each episode.  I'm using a mix of part number and chronological ordering, and it's of course subject to change, but this is my plan as it stands today.
My current thought is to start injecting home...

Creating an Arcade ColecoVision Clone

This is my second time trying to post this.. the first time a browser glitch discarded my post, and I couldn't be bothered to type it up again. But now I feel like it. ;)
With Super Space Acer nearing some form of completion after almost 25 years, my thoughts have turned to its final destination, which I'd always hoped was an arcade cabinet. I came...

Decided to just post updates to the rB+ forum instead, made a thread there .


It was a warm night at the end of Spring. Syzygy Anema was playing Namco Museum: 50th Anniversary on her PS2. She was bored, having played most of the games on the collection. (She had yet to unlock Galaga '88 and Pac-Mania.) She decided to beat Rolling Thunder again. But when she got to it on the menu, the machine's screen was blank. She selected it anyw...
