Garage, sale

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 29 June 2015 · 62 views

I went through the garage and decided to clean up in there and get rid of games I will never play ever again. I have a bunch of stuff to take to Game Crazy now. I decided to get some more games for the Dreamcast. I have almost everything I would want (that I discovered.) I ended up buying Bust-A-Move 4 and Hoyle Casino on ePay, paying more than I probably...

BattleBots 2015

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 29 June 2015 · 38 views

Watched the second episode last night, which covered off the remaining 8 battles in the first round.  Unfortunately, that made it a little rushed compared to the first episode which only covered 4 battles.  It also meant that a bunch of the teams didn't get their 15 minutes of fame before getting knocked out.
 
I'm now regretting deleting t...

Inside the WICO Ergostick

WICO, ergostick, joystick

Inside the WICO Ergostick The WICO Ergostick was my joystick of choice during the ST days.  In those days the mouse was getting more use then the joystick but it did relieve the wrist pain.  I can use the left or right hand for the mouse but never became ambidextrous with any joystick.
 
The ergonomic design of the rubberized housing allowed for a solid grip with...

1.21 Gigawatts of Gaming Ep. 7: Ghouls N' Ghosts saga

Posted by Dragon Princess Yushira in DPYushira's Entertainment Blog, 25 June 2015 · 88 views

This does not include Ultimate Ghouls N' Ghosts for the Sony PSP. These are the first three games released for the series: Ghosts N' Goblins for the NES, Ghouls N' Ghosts for the Sega Genesis and Super Ghouls N' Ghosts for the SNES. None of these are by me. Ghosts N' Goblins by Roja Calor/Captain Caliente, Ghouls N' Ghosts by Kage Negra/Tiggy Smalls, and...

The good beige 99/4A keyboard

Posted by OLD CS1 in OLD CS1's Blog, 23 June 2015 · 76 views

After alternating between beating and gingerly pressing on my beige 99/4A's God-awful membrane-switched keyboard to obtain desired results -- a key on-screen with no repeats -- I was finally able to locate the leaf-switched type with real beige keys.  This was a Radio Shack special I found on eBay and it cost me around $12 shipped.

Updating the WICO "Command Control" Trackball

Posted by --- Ω --- in TI-99/4A Stuff, 18 June 2015 · 163 views

UPDATING THE WICO TRACKBALL
 
Needing a simple project to alleviate the ‘boredom factor’, I purchased a Wico ‘Command Control’ trackball unit for my classic computer.  I knew before ordering that the RED color of the device, ‘simply would NOT do ’, as it appears cheap (at least to me).  Since I re...

Cruiz'in Fan Theory-June 2015

Posted by doctorclu in Bubsy Bobcat Fan Blog, 10 June 2015 · 67 views

There are so many amazing things in my Bubsy search tonight.  Sometimes I search and it is the same ole same ole and sometimes I search and I find things like this, out for a year and I did not see before.  Crazy.
 
But I love this fan theory of how Bubsy pulled a Turbo in Wreck-It-Ralph and actually TOOK OVER Sonic.  :D

Thought I needed a new tuner

Posted by SpiceWare in SpiceWare's Blog, 07 June 2015 · 174 views

This past week I noticed an issue where a few recordings were cropped:

 
I didn't think much about it at first as the episodes I noticed it on had been recorded multiple times, so I just watched another recording.  
 
I then ran into it when watching live TV.  I did some experiments and realized it was always occurring on the 3rd t...

Tomorrowland - Spoiler-free movie review

Movies

Okay.... if you read my last review , I was pretty-much done with going to the movies.

So, yeah. About that...

After that final disappointing trip to the theater, I began to realize something: going to the movies had become a chore . And it had been for quite some time, too.

Besides the two trips to see Age of Ultron, I'd been to a string of bad screen...

Joystick Port 1 Output Control Accessory for Diamond GOS

Posted by Pack007 in Diamond in the Rough, 31 May 2015 · 130 views
Diamond, Accessory

At some point during the writing of the last blog entry it dawned on me that accessories could be written to toggle the logic output for the joystick port from within any Diamond application that uses the drop down menu.  Six machine language programs were developed to do just that.
