Soup of the Day

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 20 May 2015 · 34 views

With the death of Wordplay magazine (I got an e-mail notice because I sent some rejected puzzles to them.) I sadly looked through the issues I had. I don't have them all, and it only lasted about a year. I noticed every issue I did have started with a puzzle called "Double Alphabet Soup." I tried to make my own. About 80 minutes later, I had made my own....

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 · 114 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...

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 · 123 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...

Cut Cable Today  - they have a nice comparison of DVRs for use with an antenna .  
My folks plan to cut the cord in the near future, they'll probably go with the Tablo , their top pick.  The Tablo didn't exist when I start this project, else I might have gone with one.
It sits on your home network (does not directly connect to y...

Another Road Block

Posted by simbalion in Musings of the White Lion, 07 May 2015 · 115 views

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...

Another year has come and gone. And no, you didn't collapse into a coma and wake up seven months later (well... for all I know you didn't) - rather, another school year has come and gone.

And as usual, the annual screenings of our student films have been taking place (here's the obligatory link to last year's blog entry ).

indigoLoop (part 18)

Posted by seemo in The art of being clueless, 26 April 2015 · 117 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)

Unity - handrolling meshes

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 16 April 2015 · 156 views

The other day I decided I needed to set myself a goal to work on in Unity.  A game project to help focus my self education.
What I settled on is a Battlezone style game.  (Not a port - just the basic ideas.)
So one of the things I need is a tank to shoot at.  Which means I need to create a model which Unity will then display....
