Tuner firmware update

Posted by SpiceWare in SpiceWare's Blog, 24 May 2015 · 15 views

Been over a year since I checked the firmware on my tuners, so I downloaded the update tool  and ran it:

 
I have the older HDHR3-US model, current version is HDHR4-2US .  Looking at the firmware changelog I see that not much changed for my model since the 20140121 firmware:
Release 20150406 - HDHR3-US/DT/EU models: Fix reboot when...

Special bug moves

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 24 May 2015 · 36 views

I decided it was time to work on Insecticide some more. I guess I should work on it more than once a month. Anyway, this update involves the bugs' special moves. Instead of pressing B to do them, I put them in a series of 4 button presses. The button presses are made with the right directional pad (as opposed to the left one, which moves the insect around...

Boxes for Intellivision Trading Card Series 1 - 4

Posted by Marc Oberhäuser in Marc Oberhäuser's Blog, 23 May 2015 · 78 views

Several people asked me if I could do extra regular sized boxes for my trading card series. Those box designs are done now and they are ready to order. One box is EURO 12.00, if you want all four the total is EURO 45. There will be no additional shipping costs if you are going to order them with the 4th set. The 5th box will be available when the 5th and...

Avengers: Age of Ultron - Spoiler-free movie review (plus free bonus rant!)

Okay... let's try this again.

After my last attempt to see Avengers: Age of Ultron, I was so fed-up with going to the movies, I really had no interest in trying again. But here I am, in a different multiplex, ten minutes away from my second attempt. I'm not holding out much hope, since I've since read several articles that state that movie theater chains...

Can I ………?

Posted by Pack007 in Diamond in the Rough, 22 May 2015 · 47 views

Can I ………? ANSWER:  Yes, you can use an Atari mouse plugged into port 1 while using the digital pins on port 0 as outputs while operating in the Diamond GOS environment.
 
The answer was needed because I’ve been thinking about writing the control software for some hardware projects to work under the Diamond GOS. As a test, this short program was writ...

Graze (2015-05-18)

graze, 7800basic

The name of this game will likely change before it's finished. It just describes the goal of the game for the most part.
 
Right now it's showing the maximum number of free-roaming enemies the engine can do before causing slowdown. The plotvalues and boxcollisions are a big cause of this but there's a lot of 7800basic commands I can re-write into ass...

7800basic tutorial - sprite and tile interactions

Posted by RevEng in dragging through the retro streets at dawn, 17 May 2015 · 127 views

checking sprite and tile "collisions"

The 7800 has 2 types of display objects, sprites and character/tile graphics. Usually a game's display is made up of tiles for the background, and sprites for the moving objects.

As a game designer, at some point you'll probably want to check which tile(s) your game sprites are moving over, or about to move over. M...

Tutankham

NOTE:  I am attempting to port over all of my old "Ultimate Strategy Guides" from the old Atarinvader.com site.  The site is archived somewhere deep in the annals of the internet and that is my only resource for retrieval.   I apologize that for right now these will be text only, but I hope to migrate them all over at some point and revital...

Rated-X Gaming Episode 1: Alpha and 177

Posted by Dragon Princess Yushira in DPYushira's Entertainment Blog, 14 May 2015 · 134 views

Welcome to the first episode of my blog's latest YT episodic series and it's called Rated-X Gaming. I had plenty of names to chose from but this one stuck out. Other potential names were: NSFW Gaming, Too Hot For Public Viewing, Ecchicon's Paradise (because I am an Ecchicon deal with it), and Maximum Xposure as a jab at one of mom and aunt Pan's old nicks...

Another Road Block

Posted by simbalion in Musings of the White Lion, 07 May 2015 · 122 views
bleah

I just hit another road block with trying to sell some of my antique radios. I finally got ahold of Estes Radio Auctions today and once again, was told no console radios, especially the ones on legs. I guess what is happening is they are getting swamped with bidders only willing to pay five to ten dollars for a radio, no matter how nice it is, a...

indigoLoop (part 18)

Posted by seemo in The art of being clueless, 26 April 2015 · 121 views

Being able to define the length of a loop makes it possible to have different sounds playing different subdivisions. 
This video shows four loops where the bass drum and the hi-hat are played with different subdivisions of the loop (7vs4 - 28 beat loop / 4vs5 - 20 beat loop / 3vs2 - 18 beat loop / 6vs5 - 30 beat loop)
