In the city.

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 26 May 2018 · 18 views

So my package is actually in the city where I am now. I don't know why it lingered in San Francisco for 3 days, though. I hope to have the stupid package on Tuesday. If so, it took 2 weeks to get here from Germany even though it was only supposed to take 1. And I'll finally figure out why it was in California in the first place. I worked on the Game Gear...

Solo - Movie launch day May 25, 2018

Posted by doctorclu in Bubsy Bobcat Fan Blog, 25 May 2018 · 38 views

41 years to the day of the original Star Wars Movie release, Solo is released to theaters.  Which I will see soonish.
 
And Bubsy had this to say...
 

 
That price is ... (wait for it) ...  SOLO.   Probably the lowest yet.  :D

BOARD GAME (A Prospectus)

Posted by StanJr in StanJr's Blog, 25 May 2018 · 38 views

Below is the prospectus I wrote up for BOARD GAME to present to my fellow collaborators.  I've got a guy who may do my artwork for me (another old high school buddy, we'll call him Matt), but if he's too busy I'll be shopping an artist.  Again, I'm working from my original basic rules, but I'm tweaking them so that they are more user friendly an...

X-Y Plotter Table For The TI 99/4A Computer

Posted by Vorticon in Vorticon's Blog, 25 May 2018 · 42 views

So I've been mulling the idea of creating an X-Y table for my TI computer, which could be use 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 plo...

I've been into a lot of music lately, not only listening but also playing and composing, I fell in love with the band Ghost, a swedish heavy metal band, and recently in one of the groups I'm in an amazing dude posted a giveaway of a special bill signed by the whole band!! And I'm proudly part of this giveaway, I know this has nothing to do with programmin...

Minecraft in glorious 16 colours

Posted by Serguei2 in Robin Gravel's Blog, 15 May 2018 · 88 views

I decided to build my own texture pack in Minecraft.
 
I downloaded Paint.Net because it supports transparent color, Microsoft Paint does not support transparent.
 
After trials and errors, I managed to build my texture pack in 16 EGA colours. 
 
I saw texture packs based on NES, so why not in EGA.
 
The reason I used Beta 1.7 is...

Finally it’s over. C/O 2018

Posted by Dragon Princess Yushira in DPYushira's Entertainment Blog, 14 May 2018 · 100 views

No more school, no more books, no more teachers dirty looks. 4 years went by fast. Now its only my little brother who has yet to make it out of high school in 20. He too will be 16 at that time.

My first drawing

bubsy, Accolade, old fan-art

Yeah. This was my first time ever drawing the bobcat. Can't remember if I used a reference or not... 
Looking back at it, at least for me, it's kinda hard to look at, because after two years of practice, and a couple of design changes, I can finally draw without using a reference. But seeing how I drew this while I was at least 14, and it was a first...

dMetronome - tick tick tick tick tick………..

Diamond GOS, metronome

dMetronome - tick tick tick tick tick……….. Every computer needs a metronome program but only a few Atari8 owners have the Diamond GOS to run this one and even fewer would want to build the simple hardware to hear it. That shouldn't stop you from enjoying the video.
 

 
It may have been easier to write this one in BASIC but I wanted to get back into Assembly a...


Next music to compose after Africa by Toto?

Posted by newcoleco in newcoleco's Random Blog, 02 May 2018 · 215 views
music, 1982, poll, coleco and 1 more...

The way I've selected Africa by Toto was by searching the Greatest Hits of 1982. The number of views on Youtube for the song Africa released in September 1982 is very high, but the song isn't present in the Greatest Hits of 1982, but in the one in 1983, which surprised me.
 
Anyway, the list of Greatest Hits included the obvious "Survivor - Eye of th...

Homebound

Posted by mojofltr in Beware of Kiwi, 29 April 2018 · 125 views

I am stuck at home - no driving privileges until I get the okay from my doctors. I am stir crazy.  I have an appointment with a therapist on Monday, an appointment with the dentist on Wednesday (I chewed two teeth loose on the breathing tube while comatose and an oral surgeon extracted them), and an appointment with the cardiologist on Thursday (I wa...

3D Printers - New Tech protecting our new "TI-Toys"

Currently, few people have a decent 3D printer, even fewer people have the design skills to create cool stuff on them.  It's really no problem because here at AtariAge we have a diverse community.  We have people with almost every skill to fill almost every available niche.  One member, who goes by "COREi64 " has the printer, the skill set...

Pesco - Atari 2600

Posted by Marc Oberhäuser in Marc Oberhäuser's Blog, 10 April 2018 · 163 views

The Ebivision game boxes are known to be totally flimsy (with the exception Power Off, available in the AA store) and not available anymore. Dan suggested that it would be a good idea to update the box quality. I tried to get in touch with Ebivision to get the official blessing but couldn't get a contact address. Since the boxes aren't available anymore I...

RealSports Curling

Posted by AverageSoftware in AverageSoftware's Development Blog, 03 April 2018 · 143 views

So I have some nifty non-gameplay related things to show off.
 
The first is my fantastic title screen:
 

 
I made the logo by firing up the GIMP, finding the fanciest looking font I could, and then just typing out the word "Curling."  I then scaled it down to Atari 5200 resolution.
 
I painstakingly converted the first two lett...

Revision 2018

Posted by Thomas Jentzsch in For whom it may concern, 03 April 2018 · 173 views

After participating  in 2015 myself and therefore starting to watch it for the first time, the Revision  demoparty has become a fixed date in my schedule. So I did spend Eastern watching the Revision 2018  via Twitch live stream (and YouTube for the too late events).
 
And it was a blast again! Not all compos, but most of them. Besides...
