Special edition of Manos

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 01 October 2016 · 30 views

Well, it took a few weeks, but I finally got the special edition of Manos. It mentions kickstarter, and I remember the Kickstarter campaign. I didn't contribute. But I still got to see it and own it. It has the longest featurette I have ever seen. Once a featurette passes 30 minutes, it should no longer be called one. But anyway, I knew some of the stuff...

A8 Wind Chimes - Gentle Breeze in C minor

Posted by Pack007 in Out of the Pack, 30 September 2016 · 30 views
MIDI, chimes, Arduino

There is a sound recording of the first attempt to simulate wind chimes within the following .ZIP file.  It was recorded using Window 10's Voice Recorder.  The A8 used Atari BASIC's RND(0) function to pick note, volume, and delay values for the chime strikes.  Then sent the MIDI data to the Yamaha TG33 Tone Generator, Preset 2 #87 PC*Bells....

Forgotten hardware projects

TI 99/4A and 2 more...

In 2009, I for some reason changed my YouTube user name from wmaalouli to walid maalouli, and in the process a couple of hardware videos I had under the old name were no longer linked to my newer projects. This bugged me, so I decided to included them here for posterity :)

Swift 3 catch 22

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 28 September 2016 · 47 views
iOs, Swift

Last night I told myself to stop playing Minecraft and get back to work on my iOS game.  At least start to put together the level editor.  Once I have something partially working I'm much more likely to spend time working on it.
 
But XCode had other ideas as it had updated.  So when I opened the project, it asked me (twice) whether I...

Do you know anybody who has brain lesions?

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 27 September 2016 · 123 views

My mother got an MRI recently at a hospital and found out that she has brain lesions near the back of her brain. I think they said there were five. Rumor is that she got those brain lesions from taking Tramadol , but there is no proof.
 
She has been slowly getting worse, having trouble speaking (can't find the right words or says the wrong words),...

Friends for a reason, a season, and a lifetime.. with Facebook.

So as a friend of mine said tonight, people are brought into our life for a reason , a season , and a lifetime .
 
Facebook brings all our friends together in one place, giving new definition of the above statement.
 
A Reason : Ok, I remember the REASON why we stopped talking....
 
A Season : Conversation goes something like this....

heavy sixer with sixer light guts

Hello, just got a lot of ataris one was suppose to be a heavy. the shell is but the boards are for a sixer light.
 
Not sure if I should be upset or not. I knew this day would come when I run into a problem like this.
 
I'm most likely just going to hang on to this case and use the guts for parts for other consoles.
 
I would assume that co...

Returned to programming

Posted by Dmitry in Dmitry's Blog, 19 September 2016 · 83 views

Folks, I have wanted an "ultimate" Atari for a while now, and for me that is : VBXE, 65c816 and hdd solution.  And it will have a flat screen monitor.  And it will be connected to the internet.  These solutions have extended memory and SDX on them - that's implied.  But some things that might be in another's ultimate atari, are not in...

RealSports Curling

Did some more line work on the sheets.  There's now a center line, and I have the hogline on the other end.
 

 
You can also see the hacks on the left.
 
Due to sprite limitations, I don't think I'll be able to put the rings on the shooting end.  That's OK, since they have no function on that side, in effect I have a one-sided c...

Heaven and Hell -OR- I'm Programming Sega The souls entry into this world is complicated.  Mystery schools of the past (like in Alexandria) helped to explain this with diagram and art.  Based on the zodiac (as most religions are) their teachings depict a souls entering the physical reality through the spheres (planets).  This diagram is aided by another that divides the great year,...

Is DVD still popular?

Posted by Serguei2 in Robin Gravel's Blog, 15 September 2016 · 95 views

I bought a Sony Vaio in 2009 with Blu-Ray drive.
 
Seven years later, DVDs are still popular.
 
I thought Blu-Ray drives prices are dropped but there're still have DVD players today.

And another old building gone in my town..

Posted by simbalion in Musings of the White Lion, 13 September 2016 · 96 views

I'm not sure now old it was, but another old structure on Front Street in my town is gone. All to further an old man's ego trip of a city park. An observation deck is to be built there so you can get a really good look at a constantly filthy stretch of river and the smoke coming off the power plant. I'm not kidding, that's what you see from that spot. htt...

Madden Curse claims another victim

Archipelagos Remake - Energy bars and trees

Posted by Tickled_Pink in TP's Blog, 02 September 2016 · 160 views

Anyone who's played the original will know how eerie the game looks. The Arboreal Trees are the main feature of the game. They are the items that spread infection across the land. They look great on the ST and Amiga. They grow then sink into the ground, before growing again at an adjacent square.
 
Having played around with some Gear VR games I had n...

I recently stumbled upon AHP on Netflix, or at least just Season 1 of it, consisting of a whopping 39 episo...

So we had a very busy time of things in May and June.  July what can I say?  I partied.  :D
 
I mean that is what you do after you talk to the producer that started Bubsy and the man who produced the Jaguar version of Bubsy, which is my favorite.
 
So this account will be just to say, how's it been?  We're still here. ...
