step 13 - add sound effects

Posted by SpiceWare in SpiceWare's Blog, 13 July 2014 · 48 views

A quiet game is playable, but it's more fun with sound. TIA produces 2 channel sound. The channels are known as channel 0 and channel 1. There are 3 registers for each channel to control the sound produced:
AUDC0, AUDC1 - Control of the channel, specifies the type of sound to generate. Values range from 0 to 15, though some values produce the same type of...

Insecticide update for 7/12/14

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 12 July 2014 · 71 views

So I was struggling to figure out an easy way to decrement the health bars. Then while I was laying on the couch, it hit me. Why not make the end of the health bar a variable so I can easily subtract the blocks (which are the letter Q)? So about an hour later, I had solved my problem and made it so when a special move is made, a health bar block was delet...

I recently activated this accessory to see if I could get one of my 410 tape machines to work.  I can hear the motors running but the tape no move.  I hope you have better luck.

Here's my take on 20th Centrury Fox' Fall Guy (formerly known as Squish 'Em from Sirius Software). The label art was displayed on a promotional flyer, a bin is yet to be found.

After a longoff, back with another episode of 1.21GoG and today we are going to look at the five Mega Man games that came out on the Nintendo Gameboy and for amusement, the games are in their original green monochrome for realness purposes. Much like my mother Ice Queen X(treme)/Ice T. Gressa played Ninja Gaiden 3 in the previous episode as a special gues...

What I've been up to

Posted by mos6507 in mos6507's Blog, 24 June 2014 · 117 views

I hesitate to post a blog entry but I know a few people here have some interest in knowing what's going on in my life beyond classic gaming, so I'll offer this update.
 
Last summer I freaked out because Xtranormal went out of business and I thought that was my E-ticket ride to a career-change.  Well, here we are entering the following summer, a...

Divide by 40, Mod 40

While posting my Unsigned Integer Division Routines on NesDev, a new member there said he was looking for a divide by 40 and mod 40. I wrote a few routines, but this one really sticks out as a neat idea.;Divide by and Mod 40 combined;38 bytes, 45 cycles;Y = value to be dividedInterlacedMultiplyByFortyTable: lda #0 ; dummy load, #0 used in LUT l...

$3.85 an hour at Toys "Я" Us in 1986

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 21 June 2014 · 144 views

I was looking through some old papers and saw that I was making $3.85 an hour when I started working at Toys "Я" Us (October 30, 1986). I was one of the many people who helped get the store stocked and fixed up for the grand opening. After the store was ready for the public, I was working in the security booth with all of the video games and compute...

First playable demo of "Ninja"

Posted by BioForceApe in Bio's Blog of Randomness, 09 June 2014 · 133 views

A lot of school time has passed through me in this month, so it took me really long to adapt ramcharmap to 16px after figuring out that there is no such thing as a playfield in the 7800. Other than that, little Ninja hasn't yet  received weapons, but he can walk on a 12-lined playfield now. Oh, I forgot that his sprites are totally gli...

X-Men: Days of Future Past - Spoiler-free review

Posted by Nathan Strum in (Insert stupid Blog name here), 07 June 2014 · 194 views
Movies

I'll admit I didn't have much interest in seeing the latest X-Men film. While I thought X-Men: First Class was good, the rest of the films in the series were very hit-or-miss. X-Men Origins: Wolverine was pretty bad, X-Men: The Last Stand was awful , The Wolverine was kind-of boring, and even in the first two movies which overall were pretty good, I felt...

I knew I shoulda taken that left turn at Albuquerque

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 22 May 2014 · 161 views

I've been playing Half Life (1) on the new 27" iMac - bigger is better!  I've gotten most of the way through chapter 11 - Surface Tension, but I've discovered I bypassed getting the Tau gun back in chapter 10 - Questionable Ethics.  Sigh.... I even managed to get through the whole drain hatch / minefield section without killing the hel...


Making your own Classic Computer Joystick

Posted by --- Ω --- in TI-99/4A Stuff, 08 May 2014 · 303 views

Did you ever want a custom joystick, one that matched your computer or the furniture in your den or game room?  Do those dinky little consumer grade joysticks give your hands a major case of the cramps?  Why put up with it!  You've spent hundreds on your classic computer setup, why not spend a few bucks to make the ULTIMATE (for you) JOYSTI...
