Catan is mine!

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 27 June 2016 · 39 views

It's always interesting and fun when I find a game I don't have for a system that doesn't have many games to begin with. I had been looking at an eBay auction for 5 N-Gage games, one of which was Catan. He said $100 or best offer. I gave him my best offer which was obviously less than $100 (It isn't worth that much.) He just accepted my offer and I paid,...

Progress Resumes

Posted by Dmitry in Dmitry's Blog, 25 June 2016 · 39 views

Updating my list of tasks for "version 1" I knocked out quite a few minor tasks today.
But I'm under heavy pressure not to finish now - due to demands made on my time.
 
On the other hand, I'm going to do my best to sneak it in, because this task should complete- the game is mostly finished and I still have over a month before the deadline.

Good thing, I still have a sd television set

Posted by Serguei2 in Robin Gravel's Blog, 25 June 2016 · 41 views

I noted new devices supported UHD televisions. I'm not sure if X-Box One, PS4 and WII-U support it but the next generation of consoles will.
 
I still use my SD television to watch programs.
 
If I need a new television set, it would be an uhd , when the price becomes reasonable.

Apple ][ copy protection

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 23 June 2016 · 322 views

For those interested in Apple ][ copy protection (and cracking of it) I have found two troves of information.
 
First is the 4am Apple ][ Library at https://archive.org/..._ii_library_4am  Attached to each archive is a text file where 4am describes his cracking process.  In most cases he simply follows the boot process, analy...

Two types of mistakes that may crash 7800Basic on Windows systems

7800basic

At times, when coding in 7800Basic with Windows, sometimes you may get one of those dreaded messages, '7800Basic Has Stopped Working', and crashes. Before you get really upset and throw your computer across the room, or get help as to wonder if there is a problem with the application itself,  there are two instances in which this can happen.  ...

Static Electricity

Posted by SpiceWare in SpiceWare's Blog, 17 June 2016 · 336 views

One problem that crops up with treadmills is static electricity .  I've experienced it and for the most part the only thing that happened was a small zap when I touch the aluminum frame of my keyboard  - basically I was grounding myself through the USB port on my KVM.
 
With the new 4K monitors I would occasionally experience brief ins...

Review - LEGO Jurassic World

LEGO, Jurassic

 
I love Jurassic Park. I read the novels, saw all the films, played the games on Genesis, Sega CD, SNES,  Saturn,  and Playstation,  for better or worse! I enjoyed Jurassic World as a sequel. I was not disappointed by Colin Trevorrow's direction or the storyline.   Since its been a while that I played a game with JP content, I...

Here's my take on Atari's Zookeeper . The box art is from the arcade game flyer.

Wait, I have a blog?

Posted by Sauron in The Long Dark Teatime of the Soul, 07 June 2016 · 365 views

Somehow, the little "blog" box caught my eye a little while ago, and I started clicking through it, only to discover that I actually have a blog here too! How did that happen? Oh wait, now I remember...I started this thing years ago. See, that's what happens when you go almost half a decade without using it. You kinda forget that you have it.
 
So, w...

X-Men: Apocalypse - Spoiler-free movie review

Movies

Well... I had completely lost any interest in seeing this movie after being completely underwhelmed by the trailers. But I was really bored yesterday evening, so I decided to go.
 
I thought the last X-Men movie was good, and I'd finally rented Deadpool the other week, and thought that was pretty good, too. So maybe Fox was going to do okay with th...

3 more hurdles and Project KOF Kyo English is a go to commence.

Posted by Dragon Princess Yushira in DPYushira's Entertainment Blog, 02 June 2016 · 81 views

After some extensive testing, We managed to get a few things working with turning the games Japanese text into English using Windhex but now we have come across 2 major hurdles and 1 minor one. The first one is getting the text size small. Using the text as it is will be too big of the letters and it will crash the game. The minor issue is related to the...

The AMAZING new "FlashROM 99" Cartridge -- (updated 6/24/2016) The NEW
FlashROM 99
 
The new FlashROM 99 that came out in May of 2016 is a definite paradigm shift in cartridge technology for the TI-99/4A.  In the past, if one wanted a ROM based program in a cartridge they either had to buy an EEPROM programmer, like the MiniPRO TL866CS, and some chips, and do it themselves , or pay someone else to do...
