The new Star Wars movie is amazing. It has inspired me so much. I felt like I was getting tired of programming, but seeing Luke Skywalker really picked me up and made me feel so energised. 
It is such a good movie. I enjoyed it IMMENSELY.

Chris's Fun

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 13 December 2017 · 41 views

I came across an old issue of Chris's Fun, a magazine I had made. It was issue 1 in 2010. This was a few months ago. I decided to make a new issue. I keep forgetting about various projects I make because I bounce around from thing to thing so I don't induce ennui. That is responsible for me making video games in the first place. This issue will be on the...

Going somewhat off piste here, but as it's nearly Christmas, I thought - just this once - I'd post something non-Atari related - Lord Fortescue's Christmas Episode. Bobbety's lost Arabella's present, so he calls on his old chum, Bunty Norris, for help!
I hope you like it. Normal Atari-related service will resume after the twelfth night:-)

The Bad Black 99/4A Keyboard

Posted by OLD CS1 in OLD CS1's Blog, 11 December 2017 · 65 views

The Bad Black 99/4A Keyboard The beige model of the TI-99/4A usually has the oft-maligned post action keyboard with a membrane contact system contained within which is prone to failure.  In my first blog post I was both happy and disappointed to find a couple of variants of the beige keyboard which had, respectively, the spring-leaf style contact with full square action and a no...

Well, after a lot of work I may have fixed all the collision bugs.
I've certainly fixed the worst of them, and my testing so far looks pretty good.  The new shooting system works extremely well and I'm having a lot of fun just doing the testing.
I've also gone ahead and added a few sound effects.  Nothing serious, placeholders real...

All about the Audio Companion

Audio Companion, AC, Sound

The Audio Companion board is designed to be a simple way to add high quality sound to Atari consoles and computers lacking a sound output (predominantly the 2600, 5200, 7800, 400). It can also be used in any system as an audio mixer. For example, a stereo Pokey setup can be mixed to a mono output without affecting the separation of the 2 stereo channels....

I actually got to see Pixar's Coco at a sneak preview at work a couple of weeks ago, but couldn't write anything about it until the movie was in theaters. (I work at CalArts in the Character Animation Program , for those that haven't been following along.)
It was an interesting screening, because Disney had what I could only describe as their Secre...
