Hour 2

Posted by Ranger03 in Alien Isolation Blog, 20 July 2018 · 4 views

After watching the Xeno make it's creepy as hell entry into the station through an upper vent, i went back to the ST lobby and watched as a group of paranoid people died in agony. quite amusing.
 
i then went down to comms control. I see now how we can beat skynet. Every android is apparently equipped with a 6507 processor and walks as if in sludge....

Fire Fly (Mythicon)

Posted by DoctorSpuds in DoctorSpuds Reviews Things, 20 July 2018 · 25 views
This game is Great!

Fire Fly (Mythicon) Alright! I'm reaching for some low hanging fruit today. Fire Fly from Mythicon, oh boy what a glorious mess of a game. This has got to be one of the most hated games on the 2600, and is without a doubt one of the worst.This game has been drawn and quartered, beheaded, and burned at the stake, in a figurative sense at least, by the retro gaming community a...

Buzz Bombers

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 19 July 2018 · 31 views

I decided to take a break last night and play some Intellivision games that OTHER people made. Looking through my collection, I thought I'd like Buzz Bombers. I put in the cartridge. As it turns out it's a lot similar to Centipede. I don't like games involving shooting stuff because I'm a horrible aim. Even point blank I missed the bees. And the hummingbi...


REZR - Dev Diary #2

homebrew, 2600

REZR - Dev Diary #2 Working on my homebrew Atari 2600 game is forcing me to think again in analog. It's important as a developer to always go back to the roots of any technology or you might lose a sense of historical context and progression.

RetroN 77 - FAIL?

Posted by Thomas Jentzsch in For whom it may concern, 12 July 2018 · 367 views
RetroN 77, Hyperkin, Stella

I had a few hours to test the console and I must say, I am overall disappointed.
 
Positives first:
Very good HDMI output (it even remembers the last 16:9 or 4:3 setting, which is a surprise)
Convenient form factor and nice design (though I wonder why the woodgrain is orange ?)
Convenient to use IF it works
Very little lag
The CPU seems powerful...

Cruizin' Facebook - July 2018 - Bubsy's visit to the Museum Have we ever posted something from Facebook?   Maybe not.  So today is a first for the Bubsy Bobcat Fan blog.   First off there is the title picture where we have this raft that looks like a coffin and instantly the thought came up of Bubsy 3d: Bubsy visits the James Turrell Retrospective

I was browsing on google a few weeks back, and I managed to snag a few gems. I'm not sure who uploaded the images, but I do know that Ken Macklin was the one who came up with these sketches. I'm sure that the BB fan blog will love these. :D 
 I believe that this was one of the first sketches that Ken Macklin drew up. Bubsy seemed to be consider...

MIDIPLUS miniEngine USB - first impressions

Posted by kPack in Out of the Pack, 02 July 2018 · 63 views
MidiPlus, MIDI

MIDIPLUS miniEngine USB - first impressions I ordered the MIDIPLUS miniEngine USB sound synthesizer to reward myself for doing something special.  This is the first chance I've had to play with it and can't remember exactly what that something was.  Maybe it wasn't that special.
 
The thing that interested me most about this general midi sound module is its size( 3" X 4" X 1"). ...

The Greensboro Science Center and Their Unhealthy Air

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 01 July 2018 · 85 views

I went to the Greensboro Science Center on June 26, 2018 and barely got past the penguins (into the next room with the jellyfish) when I got a horrible tickle in my throat from the crappy air. I drank some water, but the real relief only happened after leaving the building. They're in desperate need of some air cleaners or negative ion generators or bot...

BOARD GAME (Development Part 2)

Posted by StanJr in StanJr's Blog, 25 June 2018 · 90 views

So after getting some basic movements down and roughing in some combat, the game started to resemble the game from faded days of yore.  However, the edges were still really rough and I hadn't fully put my finger on what the character stats meant.  Since sometimes the only way ahead is through, I just kept playing very small micro-games with a ru...

Haven't posted here in quite some time, because the stuff I've been working on has just been such a pain.
 
The most difficult part of this project so far has been the collision code, and I totally expected that to be the case.  I've made three attempts at coming up with a system for this, and they all reached a state where I thought they worked...

[#043] No, seriously. I've been gone for a long time, and I will most likely keep up this trend and only "check in" a few times year.
 
My last blog post was February 2017, and my last topic post on the board was in December 2017 (in the Secret Santa thread, and I feel bad for never letting my Secret Santa know he/she did a great job with my presents...

X-Y Plotter Table For The TI 99/4A Computer - Updated 6/30/18

Posted by Vorticon in Vorticon's Blog, 25 May 2018 · 204 views

So I've been mulling the idea of creating an X-Y table for my TI computer, which could be used to draw a bitmap image or perhaps do some laser engraving. I searched the web for inspiration and found this ingenious video by HomoFaciens where he uses the stepper platform that moves the laser head in optical drives to create a very effective but small X-Y pl...
