Cruisin' On Auto-Pilot - Part II

Posted by DZ-Jay in DZ-Jay's Random Blog, 17 November 2018 · 28 views

In our first part of this series on the P-Machinery Auto-Pilot , we reviewed the general circumstances that prompted its creation, how and why it was created, and an overall idea of the infrastructure that supports it.  Central to that infrastructure was the concept of a Sprite Object Record , the data structure representing a game sprite, which is...

Name this game (U.S. Games)

Posted by DoctorSpuds in DoctorSpuds Reviews Things, 17 November 2018 · 14 views

Name this game (U.S. Games) Competition games are just the worst, because you know there were so many disappointed kids out there who wasted their money on the game hoping to win the grand prize and only getting a mediocre game instead. Name This Game is one of those disappointing competition games, and like many competition games before it the competition was never completed since...

Crazy Comics Collage - 11/14/2018

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 16 November 2018 · 29 views

So I had this idea. I was incredibly bored. Mom was working on a collage. She said "Why don't you do one?" I looked around. The only thing that interested me was the comics page of the local newspaper. So I took it, started reading it, and found two panels from two different comics that clicked. That is when the idea hit. So I started cutting out panels f...

If you hate slow motion walking, don't buy Red Dead Redemption 2 (or just avoid chapter 4)

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 16 November 2018 · 46 views

My sister bought Red Dead Redemption 2 for me as an early Christmas present since I have to keep spending so much time in bed and the game was pretty good until I got to chapter 4. You already had to walk painfully slow in camp, but chapter 4 is when there are many spots where you have to walk really, really, really, really, really, really, really, real...

Board Game Development 5 Sometimes You Gotta Commit

Posted by StanJr in StanJr's Blog, 15 November 2018 · 32 views

Ok, so after much hemming and even more hawing (it wasn't pretty), I think I'm going to build this game primarily as a solitaire game with multiplayer options.  It was conceived as a solitaire board game way back in the day and I think that is where it's the strongest.   That takes a lot of the pressure off making sure that the game is fun for 2...

Cruiz'in - "Bubsy : Twisted Dreams?" - November 2019 Today we have a late Halloween edition.   As I was recording play throughs of Woolies Strike Back I came across a glitch.  I hit the button for the screenshots or recordings after selecting a level.  The level would load and come up in the wait screen.  On certain levels (shown below) instead of a Woolie you get a winged/horned cr...

New Mac mini

Posted by SpiceWare in SpiceWare's Blog, 15 November 2018 · 68 views

I've upgraded my Mac mini in preparations of getting a 4K TV.  My original mini would support 4K, but only at a 30Hz refresh rate.  Timing for this appears to be good as a couple times last week my HDTV turned on with the convergence seriously out of whack - the Mac's white menu bar looked like a multicolored grin.  Each time a power cycle...

Gameboy Popeye not available

Posted by Serguei2 in Robin Gravel's Blog, 14 November 2018 · 39 views

I found an old letter from Funcoland saying Popeye on Gameboy is not available and it cannot be shipped.
 

 
I played Popeye on NES and I'd like to play it on Gameboy.
 
Time flies fast.

SF2 Champion Edition - NES

Posted by LS_Dracon in Draconland, 11 November 2018 · 91 views

When SF2 arrived in the arcades NES was still very popular.
I remember my friends talking about how cool would be a NES version.
 
Then the pirates comes with so many SF2 clones, but they have some flaws.
 
I decided to make a concept proof demo, much like what I did on Simpsons Demo, to test some of my ideas about a SF2 game made by me.
This de...

S.O.P. Track 3 - Two-Part Invention In F Major

S.O.P. Track 3 - Two-Part Invention In F Major A.K.A. Invention #8
Still working with Atari BASIC to create the sounds.  This time a couple of FOR-NEXT loops were added to give a little attack and decay to the notes before it was compiled.  The Program does some pretty strange things to the notes when used with a MIDI KEYBOARD but works OK as long as a note get turned off before the next NO...

https://web.archive.....50megs.com:80/  I found a 2001 version of my old site (Well, some of it) on the internet Archive. This site was a part time project of mine, mostly about 2D games on the Saturn. It was created with hand-coded HTML and MS Paint between 1998 and 2001, and it was basically my introduction to...

Bloody "Life Hacks"

Posted by OLD CS1 in OLD CS1's Blog, 04 November 2018 · 74 views

I can be an asshole and sometimes a bit crotchety. It was a relief, therefore, to find that I am not the only one who finds the concept of "life hacks" cringe-worthy and often aggravating, if only for misusing the word "hack." You might come across some viral new "life hack" and think, "nothing special about that," since you or someone or some group of pe...

Vs. Vs. Golf

Video Game Ramblings

About a year-and-a-half ago, I posted about getting my best-ever score in Vs. Golf in MAME: 16 under par.
 
Since then, I've kept playing and have gotten back to that score and near it quite a few times. But 18 under eluded me. I'd always have one or two bad shots that kept me from reaching it.
 
I also started playing the Women's Vs. Golf ROM...

Finishing Up (Minikernel Developer's Guide)

Posted by Karl G in Karl's Blog, 01 November 2018 · 66 views

Now that we have a minikernel that can display a life icon for each player and be positioned correctly, we need to display the correct number of lives for each player.  We will do this by setting the NUSIZx register for each player to a value that displays the correct number of copies of the player object that corresponds to their remaining number o...

cc65 intro

The primary purpose of this blog is to discuss using CC65 on Atari 8-bit computers - which goes from "hey this is easy!" to "omg...how do I do X?!?" pretty darn fast.  My posts will naturally include source code showing how I've managed to do various things with the platform.
 
The vehicles I plan to use during these discussions are two programs...

Magical Fairy Force

Posted by AverageSoftware in AverageSoftware's Development Blog, 26 October 2018 · 85 views

Got a little bit more done on this.  I now have the fairy power gauges created, and they properly fill as you blast wisps.
 

 
The gauges are built from all four player objects, two of them comprise the black "empty" color and the other two are the fill color.  I could get fancy and play with the player size registers to get away wit...

Candy Catcher - Atari 2600

Well, for this box I only did the printing. Since I never got the fitting cartridge/refund from disjaukifa I add this reproduction box for sale to until it my costs are covered.
