Mom just left for the hospital.

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 16 August 2017 · 46 views

I rarely talk about home life here. But this I just have to. Mom has been really sick lately, she can't eat or anything. It's been all downhill for a few months now. Since I can't drive, my sister has to take her to the hospital. Mom has been telling me all the stuff I need to do in case something happens, but I'm so helpless, if she dies, I don't know wh...

CDF Finalized

Posted by SpiceWare in SpiceWare's Blog, 15 August 2017 · 68 views

cd-w was able to fix the CDF compatibility issue with my evil 7800 , however this required a significant revision to the CDF driver which broke compatibility with Stella's CDF support so this build of Draconian does not work in Stella.   I have submitted an update , so once the next release of Stella is available you'll be able to run this on y...

My Top 10 Atari 2600 Games

Posted by HP Atari King of Michigan in HP Atari King of Michigan's Blog, 13 August 2017 · 109 views

My Top 10 Atari 2600 Games As the 40th anniversary of the Atari 2600 VCS approaches, I decided to compile my personal favorite games on the legendary system.  I've owned Nintendo NES, SNES, and Wii, Sony Playstations 1 and 2, the original X-Box, and Sega Genesis, as well as other Atari systems (5200 and 7800), I always find myself coming back to the 2600.  I was a kid dur...

Simpsons NES

Posted by LS_Dracon in Draconland, 12 August 2017 · 137 views

I was playing Simpsons - Bart vs Space Mutants for NES and I was disappointed by the game graphics.
 
Actually none of the versions for other systems have good graphics.
 
I played the Master System version back in the day, and I never pass the first level. 
 
Anyway, back to the NES, Here's my redemptions of the sprites, using the sam...

SuperSketch Tracing Pack for TI and ColecoVision

Posted by OLD CS1 in OLD CS1's Blog, 12 August 2017 · 119 views

SuperSketch Tracing Pack for TI and ColecoVision I do not have the time available yet to jump back into the forums as I have been cleaning up my home-office and integrating my former state office.  Part of the process involves archiving items in storage for long-term safe-keeping.
 
While I am not certain how available these are, I figured mine are in good enough condition to go ahead and scan...

Now It's Not My Pancreas

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 07 August 2017 · 155 views

Continued from a previous blog entry . I went to a gut doctor today (a belly specialist). He said that the numbers aren't high enough to be any form of pancreatitis. According to him, the scans don't show anything wrong with my pancreas. And my symptoms don't match up either. He thinks it's probably my gallbladder and the no fat/low fat diet I'm on works...

Spider-Man: Homecoming - Spoiler-free review

Posted by Nathan Strum in (Insert stupid Blog name here), 06 August 2017 · 194 views
Movies

I finally got around to seeing Spider-Man: Homecoming a few days ago. I was debating whether or not to go see it because frankly, I'm a little tired of Spider-Man movies. Even though some of them had their moments , and Spider-Man himself was handled pretty well, it was Peter Parker  who just never really clicked. For one thing, he was always way too...

CRUTCHFIELD Spring 1982 catalog

Crutchfield

CRUTCHFIELD Spring 1982 catalog A co-worker gave me his copy of the Spring 1982 Crutchfield catalog knowing I was looking into buying my first computer.  This catalog contained 15 pages of Atari product information (page93-107). I was impressed with the graphics capabilities but the onscreen lower case letters made the 800 my first computer. I have never regretted that de...

Why is my life crap? (asks a friend)

Friend #1
Why am I such an asshole? Why is my life shit?
 
Friend #2 
Simple fact is, you reap what you sow!  
My comment:  I mostly agree with the previous comment. I think some people attract storm clouds. All and all, I feel free to PM me with more details if you want an answer more in line with you, if you want advice, or jus...

ReplayFX 2017 Friday report

Posted by Cafeman in Caféman's Blog, 28 July 2017 · 200 views

I attended ReplayFX (Pittsburgh, PA) on Friday July 29 2017. Didn't go the first day (Thursday). I intend to go Saturday too, tomorrow. 
 
This is the 3rd year in a row I've attended, and I'll keep attending as long as it keeps happening each year in the City of Champions . 
 
Vendors - pretty similar to last year, mostly the same ones...

I never finish anything...

Posted by mojofltr in Beware of Kiwi, 24 July 2017 · 290 views

I never finish anything... So it is starting to seem more and more unlikely (with the exception of a limited release of Bombs Away / Drop Zone IV) and Tremors (Scott's  hack of Mine Dig) that any of my games will see a cartridge release.  If you are interested, feel free to get someone to do a one-off.
 
I will try again to see if Captainbreakout has found any motiv...

3D printed solar filter for telescope/camera

Posted by Vorticon in Vorticon's Blog, 20 July 2017 · 208 views

So with the upcoming total solar eclipse on August 21st 2017, I decided to get my hands on a solar filter for my 8" Dobsonian telescope so I can grab some video and pictures of that rather infrequent event. Since I had bought my telescope from Orion, I checked for a compatible solar filter on their site and found out that it was priced at $145! There was...

5 Criteria For Great Games/Systems

Posted by boski in drawscreen then reset, 18 July 2017 · 43 views

For a while now, I’ve been trying to figure out what are the determining factors of a great game, and by extension a great game system. It doesn’t take much self-reflection to realize my favorite systems are the VCS, NES, and Wii. Many of their games satisfy one of the following criteria. Numbers 1-4 are pretty essential for me, but when a gam...

RealSports Curling

Posted by AverageSoftware in AverageSoftware's Development Blog, 11 July 2017 · 219 views

Made little more progress, as evidenced by this screen shot:
 

 
I now have end transitions fully implemented, apart from actually checking for the end of the game.  On the scoreboard you can see a few new things.
 
First, there are a couple of team indicators on the left side.  The colors are subject to change, and may even end...

An Idea: Slower, Harder, More Challenging Pac-Man

Posted by FujiSkunk in FujiSkunk's Blog, 10 July 2017 · 168 views
game idea, pac-man, mod

An idea for a Pac-Man upgrade literally came to me in a dream a couple of nights ago.  I actually remember most of the dream, but I'll spare everyone the details, except to say it began at a game convention where I realized I hadn't yet set up the systems I'd brought, and ended with me on a running track trying to escape the men in black.  My d...
