Blog of the endless tinkerer: motivation and willpower cycles

Posted by Cafeman in Caféman's Blog, 21 October 2017 · 36 views

Working on a homebrew project, as with any personal goal,  takes desire, motivation, and willpower.    At first, a project is exciting and fun; you are more easily motivated to dedicate time and concentration to keep making progress, to see how good it can get and what you will be able to accomplish.    You imagine a fun game and...

Pitfall!, Pitfall and 4 more...

Well, so much for keeping up to date with my blog. Ah well, better late than never...although some may disagree;-)
Pitfall! is the first of my two latest Patch conquests (worry not, my blog entry on the latter  -Seaquest - will swiftly follow!) Would it be fair to say that Pitfall! is the Activision Atari game of which general videogame fan...

Intellivision - 2609 - Capacitor Replacement Video Been doing a few composite AV mods on client intellivisions. Though I would video the process I go through for doing a capacitor replacement. I'm working on trying to get the videos down to be more watchable in smaller amounts of time but perhaps too much compression on time is used in this video?
Big special thanks to Adan Toledo for his permissio...

So I have been having trouble with Jaguar programming. I tried everything and just couldn't make the fire ant sprite appear on the screen without weird lines up above it. I had been using GIMP since that's what the forum post said to use. But I found out that Paint Shop Pro was a better choice, since Sporadic replied and said he used Paint Shop Pro 7 to c...

My Experiences with the Atari TT030 Computer

Posted by doctorclu in Doctor Clu's Dissertations, 15 October 2017 · 134 views

My Experiences with the Atari TT030 Computer On a forum someone was looking for a Atari TT030 computer .
I had a TT030 from 2000 till 2006-ish.  Even made a Youtube video of my TT030 or even two (which maybe had the better music) towards the end to capture some of the fun of the TT030 and its modplayer.   Before I go into my reply, I will say this about the TT030: for a while...

Moving Soon, So I Could Be Offline for a While

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 13 October 2017 · 157 views

The new place will be ready in about a week, but it could take 700 years to pack up everything. I have no idea when I'll lose my internet connection. I'm pretty sure it will happen this month (October 2017). If I disappear for a while, you'll know why. My upcoming absence will be tough on you, but try not to cry while I'm gone. :D

It's Nice to Want I believe the saying that happiness is not always having what you want, but it is wanting what you have. With the Fall season taking hold, I find myself getting back into a nostalgic frame of mind. While I find it is not productive to live in the past, I find that some of the best memories actually help me appreciate what I have more. As I tossed the draw...

Pac-man defense posts

a few people said that the "Pac-man sucks!" / "Hey it wasn't that bad!" posts are a recurring topic, so I decided to try and find them all.
First my topic (which is best one of course!) In Defense of Pac-man
and all the rest: (I've ommited the threads that are "what are the worst games of all time and why are they Pac-Man and ET? type threa...

I got a very special little gift today for my birthday. A cute plush of the Saitama Seibu Lions 'Leo' mascot! Not easy to get here in the states. Of course, now Leo can keep an eye on me at all times. :)

Nes Sprite Programming

Posted by LS_Dracon in Draconland, 07 October 2017 · 111 views

Slow but improving my NES programming skills.
Today (well, yesterday) I did a code to create a sprite "block" (don't know how to call it).
This is something new to me, on Atari 2600 and Odyssey2 each sprite is a single object. On NES the sprites is a little tile, 8x8 pixels.
Naturally to display large images you need to use more than a singl...

Cranston's Farm

Posted by jacobus in jacobus Indev, 06 October 2017 · 130 views

This is a project I started (in BASIC) way back in the early 80’s and put aside for many years.  I recently found the original code, and after having a good laugh decided it would be an excellent project to re-write in Quick.
The concept is simple – you’re an 18th century farmer dropped onto a forty acre/field grant of land and you...

SMARTBOY Adding to the tactile experience, here is where you can have a device to connect to Android phones.  This borrows the screen to play the Gameboy and Gameboy Color games.  No Advance games yet that I'm aware of.   Still pretty cool.

Install - UAV & AC in the 400

Posted by Bryan in The UAV Blog, 25 September 2017 · 163 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.
