Back to the Odyssey 2

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 24 November 2017 · 1 views

So I revisited the Oranges game I made for the Odyssey 2 and made a few changes to it. This inspired me to want to work on a new Odyssey 2 game. There's just one problem: No ideas. I guess that's the problem when you've done so many Odyssey 2 games you could vomit. I have 8 published games, from various publishers. I guess Oranges is a glorified version o...

Dell UltraSharp 2007FPb quick comparisons to 2001FP

Posted by OLD CS1 in OLD CS1's Blog, 22 November 2017 · 60 views

Dell UltraSharp 2007FPb quick comparisons to 2001FP I received the UltraSharp 2007FPb this week and tried it with both my Sega Nomad and TI-99/4A.  There are some significant differences to the UltraSharp 2001FP which I covered before .  Most importantly, as with the 2001FP the 2007FPb will sync properly to a 240p signal, though also samples it as a 480i signal.

Guerrilla Game #4

Posted by vidak in vidak's Blog, 22 November 2017 · 42 views

I figure posting on here is better than clogging up the forums.
 
I'm learning a lot by constructing my own kernel. I suppose the first thing to mention is that if you are drawing an asymmetric playfield, you MUST consciously draw the playfield every line. You are forced to update it every line, otherwise the right half will be displayed on the left...

RealSports Curling

Posted by AverageSoftware in AverageSoftware's Development Blog, 17 November 2017 · 124 views

I've now finished the last of the major changes to the shooting system, and the curl application phase is now much simpler and more effective.
 

 
The original curl phase of the shooting process involved an ugly gauge that you used to apply curl in various degrees.  This just didn't work well at all, so now it's very simple: you curl up,...

Thor: Ragnarok - Spoiler-free review

Posted by Nathan Strum in (Insert stupid Blog name here), 16 November 2017 · 211 views
Movies

It's been a few months since I've reviewed any movies. I did get out to see Dunkirk after Spider-Man: Homecoming, but never wrote up a review for it. In short - I thought it was really well done. Very different from a typical war movie, and well worth seeing on a big screen. But since it's out of theaters now... I don't think you'd get the same sort of...

Hidden Mr. Dream dodge sprite from Punch Out NES

Posted by Dragon Princess Yushira in DPYushira's Entertainment Blog, 12 November 2017 · 121 views

For the record, I call this a hidden sprite rather than an unused sprite because each fighter in Punch Out actually has a dodge sprites to avoid uppercuts except for King Hippo of course. But to those who don't dodge uppercuts so often, Glass Joe, Great Tiger, and Mike Tyson do dodge uppercuts. It was discovered that Glass Joe will dodge uppercuts after t...

When is a 410 not a 410?

Posted by Pack007 in Out of the Pack, 26 October 2017 · 216 views
410, Cassette, recorder

When is a 410 not a 410? When it’s a camouflaged storage box.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
It took me years of careful deliberation before I could gut one of my 410 Data Cassette Recorders.  I finally came to the conclusion that I wasn't going to replace the belts just so I could play "Sammy the Sea Serpent"....

My Panasonic 42 PLASMA shorted out

Posted by Cafeman in Caféman's Blog, 25 October 2017 · 195 views

Of all the strange timing. I hooked up my Atari Xegs to the VCR with RF cable, which is hooked up to the hdtv's video input. You see, I finally programmed Adventure II XEGS onto my first Atari max cart and was planning to start real hardware play testing. At first I just popped in Jungle Hunt. Had truly awful connection, lots of static. Then... the hdtv w...
