indigoLoop (part 16)

Posted by seemo in The art of being clueless, 22 December 2014 · 18 views

if the leftmost cell of the frequency value is set, the value is not used to define a fixed frequency, but is used instead to pick a frequency from a table (that defines a 'scale')
this video shows a few iterations with fixed frequency values, then the leftmost frequency cell is set, and as a consequence the frequency value is loaded from a table

It helps if you plug it in...

I went ahead and put the logic analyzer on the flipflop, as mentioned, and found that it was neither flipping nor flopping. All the other signals looked as I hoped, everything seemed right. I checked timing on the datasheet, and while the TIME pulse was only 320ns, the flipflop only needed 40ns to do it's thing.

Finally I checked power, and found I'd wir...

Larry the Lemon work resumes

I found where I put my 2k homebrew games a few weeks ago. A few days ago, I got Stay Frosty 2. Looking at the attract mode, I wanted to release a good game using only 2k. I did that with Explosive Diarrhea (which you can buy at www.packratvg.com once the guy who runs it gets it back up and running. Right now the only thing you can do is preorder Traffic,...

Radio Controlled Mini Car = 4 Atari digital inputs

Posted by Pack007 in Out of the Pack, 21 December 2014 · 39 views
radio control

Radio controlled mini cars don’t last forever.  Sometimes they get stepped on and sometimes the battery won’t charge anymore.  In any case, when the radio transmitter and receiver still work, it may be an opportunity to hack a 4 output digital controller.

The receiver unit is from a Bensu Mini Racer.  They...

Holiday Music.

Posted by bomberpunk in bomberpunk's Blog, 18 December 2014 · 92 views

[#022] "Holiday" music. Let's be real. It's Christmas time and therefore we will call it Christmas music. A lot of it sucks. A lot of it is recycled garbage, or it's cover versions of cover versions of cover versions. Everyone has different opinions on what are good Christmas songs, depending on what they grew up with, what is sentimental to them, or what...

7800 Basic

If you read my last blog, you know how much I had trouble dealing with bankswitching in 7800 Basic.  I couldn't grasp the concept;  it takes me a while to figure out something.  Before I go any further, let me tell you a story.   Way back in grade school, I was a slow learner.  In fact, when I first started school, the teache...

Posted by SpiceWare in SpiceWare's Blog, 15 December 2014 · 245 views

In 2009 a lot of work was taking place on the development of the Harmony/Melody Cart. October 17th saw this exchange in the Holiday Cart discussion area:

2009 Holiday Cart!
In spite of that, work was progressing on another holiday game - one that I hope will bear fruit (hehe) in the future.

In February 2010, while...

I wanted to put a bunch of JPG images into a PDF file so they'd be easier to read and easier to convert to text , so I went Googling and tried this web site:
It seems to be working great so far (after allowing cookies). I used it twice last night to put JPG magazine scans into PDF files and I'll be using it some...

Interstellar - Spoiler-free review

December 1st, 10:34 PM
Well, since I didn't have any laundry to do tonight, I decided to go catch a late showing of Interstellar. So at the moment I'm sitting in an entirely empty IMAX theater, waiting for the 10:50 PM showing to start. And yes... I know I'm in for a three hour movie that I will keep me here until nearly 2 AM, but that's okay sinc...

Here at the Bubsy Fan Blog we are liking the positives of Bubsy more or less going forward.  I will admit, I was actually glad to see a review that highlights some of the positive aspects of the game.
Yes.  There are are actually positive aspects.  :P   And I have to especially agree with number four below:

CRT, Sony, Trinitron

Yesterday my good old 29" Sony Trinitron KV-X2901D CRT has died. :(

It has faithfully served me for about 20 years, for watching TV and developing all my Atari 2600 games.


I will miss you.

LMOUSE.ACC a mouse of a different shape

Posted by Pack007 in Diamond in the Rough, 17 November 2014 · 117 views

I’m not sure why anyone would need to change the default mouse shape on the desktop but if you can do it in Windows maybe an attempt should be made for Diamond GOS.  I choose this project because it has been 20 years since the last accessory was written. This was the first idea that came to mind and then I stopped thinking. Plus, I’ll be...
