batariBasic, TIATracker, VS Code

Well it's been a pretty productive week - been busy working on quite a few projects over this period in the end.  Things will slow down a bit now as I get back to work but we'll push on.
Tower of Rubble
Haven't done as much as I thought I would have but a very special thanks to @cimmerian for not only featuring Tower of Rubble on the his Zero...

Learning Action! part 4, Graphics Demo

atari 800, action!, programming and 1 more...

Sunday I posted a LINES.ACT to the blog and Youtube.
It’s a fun little program I use to test programming languages and retro-computers. It originated on the TI-99 Mini-Memory as a demo program. So far I have converted the program to Atari BASIC, Atari MicroSoft BASIC, Atari Action!, Ta...

Frank and snow (part 2)

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 22 January 2019 · 19 views

Frank and snow (part 2) On the left is Frank. On the right is snow. I don't know of any other way to draw snow except for a blob. And I am not sure if the snow falling thing is going to stay in the game or not. I just can't make it be random enough. I tried using user input as a way to try and make it random, but the results were it was somewhat predictable. But at least I made...

SpaceChase *Re-reviewed* (Apollo)

Posted by DoctorSpuds in DoctorSpuds Reviews Things, 22 January 2019 · 33 views

SpaceChase *Re-reviewed* (Apollo) I’ve been thinking back to my Spacechase review that I posted all the way back in June, it was my second review and I feel it is one of my worst. There is almost no talking about the game itself just me bashing it for being a bad game, and holy crap the second and fourth paragraphs are just one sentence each! That’s terrible! So I think it...

Ralph Breaks the Internet - Spoiler-free review

Posted by Nathan Strum in (Insert stupid Blog name here), 21 January 2019 · 62 views
Animation, Movies

I'm not even sure Ralph Breaks the Internet is still in theaters. I saw this back in November, but only now have had the time to write up a short review for it. Actually, I've got three movies to write reviews for, hence the need to keep them all short.
What do you mean, you'll "believe it when you see it"? I don't always write needlessly long-w...

Problems with wifi band 5 GHZ I used

Posted by Serguei2 in Robin Gravel's Blog, 14 January 2019 · 57 views

I noted few weeks ago, YouTube won't work anymore. 
At this time, I installed Stargate Network, a stargate simulator.
I first thing it was the responsable of this problem until I noted I can't go the internet with my new 3ds.
After few tries, I set my wifi to 2.4 ghz. Now I can go to the internet with my new 3ds and the problem w...

Bosconian side done, ThinCade: (part 4)

Posted by pboland in pboland's Blog, 13 January 2019 · 64 views

The Bosconian portion of the my first ThinCade pair is done. I still have to finish the Robotron side of the pair. There really isn't much to these. Most of the work is the cabinet itself. You can see what I mean when you see the inside of the cabinet. This was my first attempted at making an arcade video game and I learned a lot. So hopefully Robotron wi...

Space Game 2K

Posted by Karl G in Karl's Blog, 09 January 2019 · 76 views

I am working on a small subset of Space Game  in assembly that will be 2K in size.
Why?  I figure it will be good optimization practise for me as well as a way to strengthen my assembly language development skills.  Also, I'm fascinated by the idea of an Atari game small enough to be loaded from a QR code , so I thought I'd try my ha...

Book Review: How To Invent Everything

Posted by DZ-Jay in DZ-Jay's Random Blog, 09 January 2019 · 95 views

I've been reading this book my wife got me for Christmas called, "How To Invent Everything ," by Ryan North, and I can't put it down!  It's hilarious and uncanny and so entertaining!
It's hard to describe what it is.  It's not a joke book, but more like a history book, or a scientific journal, with a sci-fi twist.  You know, it occur...

Dragon's Descent Level Generation

The game is here:

...a slightly older version here:

When I posted my Atari 2600 game "Dragon's Descent ," I said, among other things, that it was an experiment in maze generation for the Atari.  I'm fascinated with algorithmically generating virtual spaces, from VR to arcade games.  W...

The Mandela Effect: Home Alone

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 27 December 2018 · 139 views

The Mandela Effect has been blamed on misremembering/confabulation and that's true when it comes to a lot of the stupid stuff you'll find out there. But there are instances where it seems like something has really changed. Some people say that we live in a holographic universe (that could have glitches or could be hacked by interdimensional aliens). O...

An Early Atari Computer Technical Demo

Posted by Atari_Ace in Atari_Ace's Blog, 22 December 2018 · 117 views

As originally conceived, Atari computers were going to be a platform where the technical secrets were held closely, allowing Atari to reap easy profits by providing software that third parties would be hard to match.  At least, that was the theory.  But the technical secrets were not going to remain secret forever, and as Atari was slow to provi...

So here we are in the final!  It was an action-packed semi-final where we saw two great bouts.
The finalists are:
Enduro (Activision) vs Super Football (Atari)
Both finalists had to deal with some tough opposition, especially in the later rounds. Enduro had to deal with a preliminary round and there was quite the di...

Stay Frosty, Part 10

Posted by SpiceWare in SpiceWare's Blog, 14 December 2018 · 199 views

Last time around, while visiting family for Thanksgiving, I'd implemented a preliminary starfield. I'd originally tried doing so using missile 1, but it didn't work (in Stella) so I changed it to use missile 0. In and of itself that was fine, but missile 0 was used for the melt trail so needed to be repositioned after displaying the stars. As a quick work...

Why CS:GO Danger Zone is better than PUBG

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 14 December 2018 · 136 views

Valve decided to make CS:GO free to play and at the same time add a battle royale mode "Danger Zone".  This is great for me as I was looking for a way to scratch my PUBG itch on my 27" iMac rather than playing PUBG on phones.
But IMHO Danger Zone is better than PUBG because it is only 16 players on a correspondingly smaller map.  This lea...

Magical Fairy Force

Posted by AverageSoftware in AverageSoftware's Development Blog, 13 December 2018 · 87 views

It's been slow going on this project lately.  My real job's been busy and I've had the irresistible urge to play Ys VIII again.
Despite this, I have made some progress, although a lot of it has been weeding out bugs in existing code.  There are a few interesting new things in this screenshot:

This first new bit is that th...
