Holiday Music.

Posted by bomberpunk in bomberpunk's Blog, 18 December 2014 · 56 views

[#022] "Holiday" music. Let's be real. It's Christmas time and therefore we will call it Christmas music. A lot of it sucks. A lot of it is recycled garbage, or it's cover versions of cover versions of cover versions. Everyone has different opinions on what are good Christmas songs, depending on what they grew up with, what is sentimental to them, or what...

Playing with Intellivision

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 18 December 2014 · 56 views

So I took a few hours to play with Intellivision programming. This is a result. The beginning of Insecticide for the Intellivision. I don't know whether or not I could be able to complete it. But I would like to do something to train me and help me with the VB version I want to finish. This might be a good first step. As of right now, Gi-Ant can walk arou...

New Space Management Policy

Posted by Pack007 in Out of the Pack, 17 December 2014 · 47 views

It finally came to a point where the hobby bench was becoming a health hazard.  Pushing things aside to clear a work area was becoming more difficult with each new project. Taking care of this problem proved to be no small undertaking.

There was major improvement over the first half hour. The dirty coffee cups were taken to the k...

Conquering Bankswitching in 7800Basic

7800 Basic

If you read my last blog, you know how much I had trouble dealing with bankswitching in 7800 Basic.  I couldn't grasp the concept;  it takes me a while to figure out something.  Before I go any further, let me tell you a story.   Way back in grade school, I was a slow learner.  In fact, when I first started school, the teache...

The Proof is in the Emulation

Posted by Tursi in Tursi's Blog, 17 December 2014 · 58 views

.. or maybe not proof, as every Genesis emulator has either no debugger, a very poor debugger, or a very buggy debugger. Regen and Exodus seem to be the closest, but Regen's breakpoint triggers are all over the place, and the entire emulator crashes if you breakpoint on code in RAM. Exodus's breakpoint selection (and in general, it's UI) isn't quite as ni...

indigoLoop (part 15)

Posted by seemo in The art of being clueless, 16 December 2014 · 37 views

Two random modes have been added, both pertaining to the AtariVox: the first generates exclusively AtariVox presets, the second mode generates both AtariVox and 2600 presets.
An example of the second, 'mixed' mode is shown in the following video.

The Story of Stay Frosty 2, Part 2

Posted by SpiceWare in SpiceWare's Blog, 15 December 2014 · 219 views

In 2009 a lot of work was taking place on the development of the Harmony/Melody Cart. October 17th saw this exchange in the Holiday Cart discussion area:

2009 Holiday Cart!
In spite of that, work was progressing on another holiday game - one that I hope will bear fruit (hehe) in the future.

In February 2010, while...

The game freezes. 
That happens to my 486 sx so I won't blame Dosbox for this.

Convert JPG to PDF (Free Online)

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 07 December 2014 · 128 views

I wanted to put a bunch of JPG images into a PDF file so they'd be easier to read and easier to convert to text , so I went Googling and tried this web site:
It seems to be working great so far (after allowing cookies). I used it twice last night to put JPG magazine scans into PDF files and I'll be using it some...

Interstellar - Spoiler-free review

Posted by Nathan Strum in (Insert stupid Blog name here), 06 December 2014 · 201 views

December 1st, 10:34 PM
Well, since I didn't have any laundry to do tonight, I decided to go catch a late showing of Interstellar. So at the moment I'm sitting in an entirely empty IMAX theater, waiting for the 10:50 PM showing to start. And yes... I know I'm in for a three hour movie that I will keep me here until nearly 2 AM, but that's okay sinc...

Cruiz'in YouTube-December 2014-A (kinda) positive review of Bubsy 3D

Here at the Bubsy Fan Blog we are liking the positives of Bubsy more or less going forward.  I will admit, I was actually glad to see a review that highlights some of the positive aspects of the game.
Yes.  There are are actually positive aspects.  :P   And I have to especially agree with number four below:

My CRT has died :(

CRT, Sony, Trinitron

Yesterday my good old 29" Sony Trinitron KV-X2901D CRT has died. :(

It has faithfully served me for about 20 years, for watching TV and developing all my Atari 2600 games.


I will miss you.

I'll be 13 this Thursday and I decided to get in one more gameplay video before I enter my teens and I decided to go with Battletoads for the NES and I nearly beat the game in one life but I suffered one bullshit death due to technical difficulties on Level 5. Controller got disconne...

LMOUSE.ACC a mouse of a different shape

Posted by Pack007 in Diamond in the Rough, 17 November 2014 · 112 views

I’m not sure why anyone would need to change the default mouse shape on the desktop but if you can do it in Windows maybe an attempt should be made for Diamond GOS.  I choose this project because it has been 20 years since the last accessory was written. This was the first idea that came to mind and then I stopped thinking. Plus, I’ll be...

Intellivision Trading Cards Series 1

Posted by Marc Oberhäuser in Marc Oberhäuser's Blog, 08 November 2014 · 213 views

I am working on a series of trading cards for the INTV (with the support of the INTV Funhouse) for quite some time now after finishing the Atari 7800 trading cards. Today I have received the test prints and the cards are looking fine. I have to do a few small changes but then they are ready to go.
The first series with 50 cards features the origina...

Clash of Clans

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 03 November 2014 · 195 views

My son managed to convince mom to install CoC on his iPhone.  After watching a little bit, I put it on my HTC.  It's pretty cool, although I wonder how Supercell is making any money given lack of IAP pressure and the TV advertising.
IAP - in app purchases, or the way "free-to-play" games make money.  In the case of CoC, $$ buys you g...
