Pac-Man 2

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 06 May 2015 · 5 views

A few years ago, I dabbled in hacking Atari 2600 games. The first ever hack I did was of Pressure Cooker. I changed it to a SpongeBob theme, replacing the music with SpongeBob music and the chef to SpongeBob, so he's working at the Krusty Krab. Since nobody here really likes SpongeBob, I decided to make a hack of something else. So  I began to take M...

Another year has come and gone. And no, you didn't collapse into a coma and wake up seven months later (well... for all I know you didn't) - rather, another school year has come and gone.

And as usual, the annual screenings of our student films have been taking place (here's the obligatory link to last year's blog entry ).

Cruiz'in YouTube-April 2015 *BONUS*

Posted by doctorclu in Bubsy Bobcat Fan Blog, 28 April 2015 · 48 views

Ok one Youtube link published in April of the history of Bubsy in seven minutes this is a really good article made in the perspective of those that actually like Bubsy, which makes this unique.   And towards the end of the video you see why the perspective was so different than most reviews out there.

indigoLoop (part 18)

Posted by seemo in The art of being clueless, 26 April 2015 · 77 views

Being able to define the length of a loop makes it possible to have different sounds playing different subdivisions. 
This video shows four loops where the bass drum and the hi-hat are played with different subdivisions of the loop (7vs4 - 28 beat loop / 4vs5 - 20 beat loop / 3vs2 - 18 beat loop / 6vs5 - 30 beat loop)

Unity - handrolling meshes

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 16 April 2015 · 108 views

The other day I decided I needed to set myself a goal to work on in Unity.  A game project to help focus my self education.
 
What I settled on is a Battlezone style game.  (Not a port - just the basic ideas.)
 
So one of the things I need is a tank to shoot at.  Which means I need to create a model which Unity will then display....

Thorazine

Posted by bomberpunk in bomberpunk's Blog, 09 April 2015 · 148 views

[#031] Thorazine is an anti-psychotic drug given to mental patients. It triggers something in the brain and calms those crazy fuckers down. But since it's a muscle relaxer and targets the diaphragm, it is also the drug given to people like me who had a case of intractable or chronic hiccups. I had that shit for four days.
 
This past Friday night, I...

Coke Zero - Revision 2015 Demo

Posted by Thomas Jentzsch in For whom it may concern, 06 April 2015 · 612 views

A while ago I had some discussion with SvOlli about improving a part of his winning Bang! demo called "Snake Sprite". Initially he wanted to add more colors, but I thought more about removing the repositioning gaps. This seemed like something never done before inside a 48 pixel kernel, so I took the challenge.
 
After making it possible, SvOlli sugg...

I have a new Windows 8 computer and have been trying to get everything set up the way it was on my Windows 7 PC. I knew that I made a screenshot of my Stella TV Effects settings, so I went searching Manage Attachments under My Settings here at AtariAge and finally found it on page 26:

New TV

Posted by LS_Dracon in Draconland, 25 March 2015 · 185 views

I bought a new 42" lcd tv for replace my old 32" lcd. Went to the store thinking to buy a 40" but the 42" price was good.
The problem was not the screen size, for me 32" was ok, but my old lcd had really bad contrast.
 
In the store I saw for the first time a huge (85" or so) 4k tv. But the 4k image quality looks better on smaller models.
 
I do...
