I'm sick of being sick

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 13 October 2015 · 21 views

Earlier yesterday, I had a stomach ache. I thought it would go away at first, but it didn't. It continues now. I had two nonconsecutive hours of sleep, and after this last hour, I went to the bathroom and I didn't think it would be a very productive trip, but I preceded to vomit a lot after taking Pepto-Bismol. So me being sick=tons of time awake, which I...

The enhanced learning of the regularity and structure of environments may act as a core mechanism by which action video game play influences performance in perception, attention, and cognition.
Video games have an appeal that crosses many demographic boundaries, such as age, gender, ethnicity, or educational attainment. They can be used to help set goals...

Putting the Curtains on Boss 2 Room In Rock Cutter

Posted by Kiwi in Kiwi's Blog, 12 October 2015 · 46 views

Putting the Curtains on Boss 2 Room In Rock Cutter I finally went back to Rock Cutter and put the curtain on the 2nd boss room since I forgot to put it on there after I have compressed it. It symbolize Zelda 2, since I love that game so much.
Sometimes I get anxiety when something bothers me while making games.  I know how to go fix it, but I just ignore it and do something else.  Now som...

A Warning about Inexpensive Hot Melt Glue Guns

Posted by frankodragon in Frankodragon's Blog Stuffs, 10 October 2015 · 60 views

If you're a crafter, a model railroader, or even a fixer of Atari cartridges, you probably know a hot melt glue gun can come in handy.  However, based on my experiences, beware of the inexpensive glue guns sold at department stores like the Ad-tech brand.
One day, I had a glue gun plugged in working on my train set gluing togethe...

2b2t - ultimate public SMP Minecraft

Minecraft, 2b2t

I finally took the plunge and bought Minecraft for the PC (after playing many hours on the PS3).  An article about 2B2T, an "anarchy" server with a world which is now five years old, intrigued me.  The world is littered with stuff players have built up and others have torn down.  The central spawn point is a wasteland of blocks floating far...

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 · 114 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...

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...

 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

S.A.M. Word Editor v1.0

Posted by Pack007 in Out of the Pack, 06 September 2015 · 206 views

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...
