Install - UAV & AC in the 400

Posted by Bryan in The UAV Blog, 25 September 2017 · 22 views

Recommended board:  Plug-In
 
The 400 has socketed chips including the 4050. The easiest installation is to put the UAV in the 4050 socket, but if you want to keep the RF output, you'll need to solder the socket on top of the 4050 and then mount the UAV on top of it. These instructions should work for NTSC and PAL systems.

Zen and the Art of Playing Laser Blast...and Other Philosophical Musings

This is something of a beast of a blog post. I meant to write as I went along, documenting each Activision Patch conquest shortly after it happened, but real-life kept getting in the way. This is the main reason I haven’t played along with the rest of AtariAge members on the Summer Patch Quest. While that would have been my preferred way of earning...

Posted by Osgeld in Osgeld's Blog, 21 September 2017 · 136 views


 
in this post I am going to take a fairly nice 65XE case, and put a big arse hole right in the face of it, lets put our big boy pants on!
 
This of course is for the LCD Screen of the integrated SIO2SD 
 
First I am going to place the LCD screen roughly where I want it, on the 65XE the most appropriate pla...

Controlling the Cassette Motor Control Bit on the A8

Posted by Pack007 in Out of the Pack, 21 September 2017 · 87 views
Cassette, Motor Control

The Cassette Motor Control(CMC) bit in the Port A Controller (PACTL ($D302)) address is going to be used as feed back from the Atari8 to the Arduino in the digital horn project.  This bit controls the logic state of Pin 8 on the SIO port. This bit has been used to control the data cassette motor.  If you're not using the bit to load data from th...

Fall.

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 21 September 2017 · 97 views

Well, the first day of Fall is tomorrow. How fast time files. Every day on the first day of the season, I make a new comic book. This summer was no different. I had made up some pages of a comic book, and then stopped for a little bit because I was ahead. So I fell behind. Earlier today, I made a few pages of it, scanned it, and put them all together to m...

Old Toonmarty intro

I wonder if this intro is the first try, a kind of a preview of a new show.
 

 
The intro is better than the show itself.

Defender, arcade cabinet

Someday it will be mine! I just wanted to write a quick blog entry here to show my intention of acquiring a Defender Arcade cabinet someday.  This game means to me more than I can properly convey.  My younger brother Joey, and I (he much more than I) played for countless hours on the Defender cabinet that they had on the pediatrics floor of St. John's Hospital in Detroi...

New Thoughts on Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan --New Thoughts on Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan---
 
Seeing Star Trek 2 on the big screen was the first time I've been able to do that since I was in the 5th grade. Naturally it was a big deal and for so many reasons 1) the phaser fire effect in the ship battles 2) James Horner's theme music 3) the story 4) The awesome uniforms. In truth, there was...

DIY microconsole part 2

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 07 September 2017 · 137 views

I now have MAME (2003 - 0.78) up and running, woot!  I've loaded up "the best of" from pre-1986, now I need to figure out how to set the controls beyond the defaults.  This also means I can play the originals rather than the console ports.
 
I'm also working on getting Colecovision running.  I've created a script which creates a playli...

Atari Comics

Posted by troff in Troff the Shelf, 05 September 2017 · 135 views

I wanted to collect together all the Atari-related comic books that I'm aware of.  Back when Warner owned Atari, they also owned DC comics, making them a natural pair.
 
First, there are the mini-comics that were bundled into Atari 2600 games.  The Atari Force DC mini comics came bundled with Defender, Berzerk, Star Raiders, Phoenix, a...

A new start.

After who-knows-how-long of never touching this blog, I've decided to start it over from scratch.

Oscilloscope Graphics with the TI 99/4A Computer

Posted by Vorticon in Vorticon's Blog, 31 August 2017 · 233 views

I recently came across videos on YouTube showing how to use an arduino to create graphics on an oscilloscope. The basic idea was to use a digital to analog converter (DAC) to convert digital signals from the arduino into analog voltages which could be then fed into an oscilloscope set up in XY mode to create what essentially amounts to cartesian drawings....

Ghostbusters (2016) [It does not inhabit the same universe as the originals.]

SPOILERS
 
I get STARZ for free and I noticed that the 2016 Ghostbusters was going to be on, so I recorded it. I was out of things to keep me company while doing tedious work on my web site, so I started watching/listening to it.
 
Since the movie came out, various people have been arguing that the film is a continuation, not a remake or a re...

Just realized that I've been working on this project for over a year now.  Kind of scary, but then again, Ratcatcher took at least three years.  Of course, Ratcatcher was my first 5200 game so there was a lot to learn.
 
I've completed the the new physics system, as least as far as basic rock movement is concerned,  The new system is m...
