Marine Wars (Konami)

Posted by DoctorSpuds in DoctorSpuds Reviews Things, 26 May 2019 · 27 views

Marine Wars (Konami) We’re back again with one of the most unlikely of Atari publishers, Konami. Konami released a grand total of three games for the 2600, Pooyan (an arcade conversion), Strategy X (an arcade conversion), and Marine Wars. I’m not calling Marine Wars an arcade conversion even though there was a machine made with the same name by Omori Electronics C...

Posted by Omegasupreme in Omegasupreme's Blog, 25 May 2019 · 27 views

awesome weekend and my 5200 and collecting thoughts I just spent the weekend fixing my 5200. I fixed the color on my 5200, re-calibrated the controllers and replaced the flex boards. lot a work but well worth it. My 5200 works better now than ever. I think it needs some more tweeking but now it works. Over all great system. I also found pacman defender super break out and Kangaroo MIB for $20. I now have 1...

Quake 3 Arena is still cool on windows 10

Posted by Serguei2 in Robin Gravel's Blog, 25 May 2019 · 42 views

Quake 3 Arena won't install on windows 10.
 
I think the installer is 16 bit instead 32 bit. 
 
Fortunely I managed to install the game and run.
 

 
All I need is to copy the whole game to the computer and start it.
 
Quake 3 Arena still needs the cd to run.
 

 

Yet more golf.

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 24 May 2019 · 37 views

Yet more golf. So I was trying to make a line of trees, like I did with the line of water used to make a stream. Couldn't, even after multiple tries. I was really sleepy all of yesterday because first off I only got a couple hours of sleep due to insomnia, and second, I couldn't sleep when I wanted to on the couch because the dog kept barking at the guy who was washing...

Atari 2600, Atari 7800 and 6 more...

In this video, just uploaded to Youtube, I show over $500 worth of Atari Homebrew gaming goodness for the 2600 VCS, 7800 ProSystem, and Jaguar. Even so I missed some, so I'll need to do another video.
 
Technically some of these games are Homebrew ports of Arcade games, but there are many that are totally original as well. Most were purchased from At...

Rocket Knight Adventures and 5 more...

Don't even get me started on the confusion over the Sparkster sequels - that'll be a whole different episode! For now enjoy Rocket Knight Adventures , a game that in my opinion is an absolute Sega Genesis classic.
 


Cruis'in Twitter - Bubsy defeats Oinker ! - May 2019

Bubsy Bobcat, Paws on Fire

Cruis'in Twitter - Bubsy defeats Oinker ! - May 2019 SpongeFox finished the game a few days ago (I was amazed) and after about three nights of solid play for hours I was able to collect the 75 hero tokens needed to take on Oinker, the third baws (boss).  
 
At the moment I love playing the Bubsy, Woolie, and Arnold levels with Virgil levels seeming very laborious.  I HATE the pick ups...

In case you're wondering.... I started writing this a couple of weeks ago under the title: "Temporary title". I got used to it, and don't feel like coming up with something else.  :roll: 
 
Every year around this time, for the past... well, it's been awhile, and I'm too lazy to look through my old blog posts... we'll just say several years,...

Net Metering Active!

Received my electric bill for April 15 thru May 15:
 

 

 
At 9am this morning my meter showed 293 kWh total of excess solar production had been sent since turning on my panels .  The bill shows I was credited for 254 kWh thru the 15th, so it appears they've credited me for most, if not all, of the excess solar.

MIDI, Arduino

Do you remember me mentioning that the first attempt to write a machine language program to  read MIDI data delivered to the Atari joystick port was a complete failure?  The Arduino hardware has remained the same. The joystick trigger and cassette motor control(CMC) pin on the SIO port are still being used to control data flow.  But this ti...

What is the value of a $40 power supply?

Posted by OLD CS1 in OLD CS1's Blog, 06 May 2019 · 81 views

What is the value of a $40 power supply? What is the value of a $40 power supply? To the guy who built it, that may be $20 in parts and some labor, plus the time to research the necessary parts and the recognition of the need for the product in the first place.  What about when he ships out the wrong power supply and then exchanges it, but through an eBay quirk the buyer winds up not paying...

I have spent about a year researching this on the interwebs. combing through many discussion forums, and studying many photos and my own personal collection, I think I have finally have a answer. The quick answer is.....every six switch ma...
