Mr. Ultra has three lives

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 08 October 2015 · 23 views

So I added a life system for Mr. Ultra. I tried to program this yesterday, but my brain started hurting because it was thinking too much so I had to quit. I went to sleep and this morning, I decided to tackle it again. At first I thought that the best way to do this was to have heads for lives. Wrong. The best way, at least for the way I have it set up no...

Working on 3 podcasts at the same time

podcasting poddies

Don't try to work on 3 podcast episodes at once. You can, but you shouldn't. You will be in editing purgatory. Things could potentially bleed into each other. Last night, I made good on my own word to work on the next CCG episode. I made some progress, but not through the whole way. But I'm getting there.
While the 2015 poddies isn't due for a whil...

AdvII XE & Hiding Spots

Posted by Cafeman in Cafeman's Blog, 03 October 2015 · 102 views
Atari 5200, Adventure II XE

I've spent some hours recently going through all the game variations and double-checking that the more complex hiding spot rules work, and that the game's hiding routines don't create an unwinnable game.  
I did run into one scenario in the beginner difficulty where the bridge was hidden in a locked castle , the magnet was blocked off by logs...

With the super blood moon out, mom decided to play an old dirty trick on me. I won't say what it was but those who can think of a bloody "moon" probably know what I'm talking about. It was an old email from before my time that she forwarded to me so I got caught off guard.  
The good ol flush the toilet while she is showering has been done already by...

A new Frigidaire refrigerator was ordered from Home Depot on September 22, 2015 and was delivered yesterday on September 26, 2015 (Saturday) at around 10 in the morning. Here are some images from Home Depot and Frigidaire:

I've been fixing up atari 2600's for resale for a few years. I've seen that the prices for mod ataris are a little better than left in it's un-modded state. It's almost enough to be profitable.
The basic MOD to make them stereo compatible seems easy enough.(though if you get the kit you are spending twice as much than if you just get the com...

From: Excellent Early 80's series on microcomputers from the BBC

Posted by kiwilove in kiwilove's Blog, 15 September 2015 · 137 views

 Source: Excellent Early 80's series on microcomputers from the BBC  It is a wonderful TV series - I videotaped a lot of it. But my videomachines have died on me and have not got a working replacement. It's quirky cartoons are more interesting to me, than South Park, or Family Guy, etc. Harvey

Apple TV 4 games - fail

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 10 September 2015 · 244 views

Why do I say fail?  Simple: no standardized controller except for the small touchpad on the remote.  
Why not announce a standard controller app (similar to the Remote app) or declare the PS3 or PS4 controller a de-facto standard Bluetooth controller?  (Although then they'd need to provide a USB input for pairing.)  This would t...

S.A.M. Word Editor v1.0

S.A.M. Word Editor v1.0 I wanted to get my collection of SAM programs organized on the PC using my new Atarimax SIO2PC. I’m not sure how large the collection was but some of the disks were unreadable. SAM worked fine with DOS 2.5 and got RECITER working after remembering to boot with a translator disk.  I guess at some point while running SAYIT.BAS I decided a better...

Mega Man 3 (And Why All Others Are Inferior)

Posted by bomberpunk in bomberpunk's Blog, 26 August 2015 · 234 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...
