Atari 5200, Reactor, homebrew

I was discussing Atari homebrews and Reactor was brought up.  I can remember only one arcade that actually had that awesome coin-op, with its trak-ball and loud electronic music and cool sounds.  Atari 2600 Reactor by Parker Brothers (the only console port I've ever heard of) was one of my most often played 2600 games, and I still go back to it...

My Mom Is Probably Going to Die Within the Next 12 Months

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 25 October 2016 · 79 views

Continued from my previous blog entry . It has been confirmed that my mom has the bad stuff in her brain. We saw the radiation doctor and the other doctor that handles the special pills on Monday and my mom decided to go through with it since they said the side effects aren't as bad as what you see on TV and in the movies (and the fact that she'd probabl...

So I woke up at 4:30 this afternoon. I was sleepy, so I went to sleep at about 7pm. Then I slept until about midnight. I woke up and started work on Aaron the Aant again. Today's job: Put a score in. And I wasn't going to stop until I successfully did so and I was happy with it. That took about 2 hours to do. I'm beginning to wonder if I can complete the...

MasterCard & Visa Gift cards

Posted by Serguei2 in Robin Gravel's Blog, 23 October 2016 · 52 views

I bought both Visa and MasterCard gift cards.
I have no problem with my MasterCard giftcard.
All the online stores accept MasterCard giftcards.
Otherwise, I really have issues with my Visa giftcard. 
Almost all online stores won't accept Visa giftcards.
I will spend the rest of the money in my Visa giftc...

iOS programming - major milestone reached

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 21 October 2016 · 71 views

My iOS game has reached a major milestone - I've linked the level creator to the play level so it's now possible to create a level and play it.  In theory a lot of the remaining coding should be relatively standard and therefore easier.
Hopefully I can get my son and a few other friends / coworkers to use it to start creating levels

JediMatt42's -- Plug-N-Play 32K for the TI-99/4A

TI-99/4A, 32K, JediMatt42 and 2 more...

Back in the day there were a ton of TI-99/4A consoles released into the wild, most of them went 'unexpanded', many ended up in the back of a closet never to see daylight for decades.  Why?  Because the system add-ons were very expensive, so by the time prices came down, TI had abandoned the home computer market and people had moved on to newer,...

RealSports Curling

Other projects and my real job have been keeping me away from this project, but I've made some interesting progress.
 I have the first bits of interaction in place, the aiming cursor is now active and can be moved with the joystick.  I'm planning a 3-stage shot system. First, you aim across the hogline, similar to the way Intellivis...

TI 99/4A, Slot car and 1 more...

Slot car racing sets have always fascinated me, and I have owned a few over the years. Unfortunately, it was always difficult to find opponents to race against beyond just a few runs. I have dabbled many times with the idea of a computer controlled opponent over the years, and finally decided to tackle it as a demo project for the 2016 Chicago Internation...

fire TV

Posted by SpiceWare in SpiceWare's Blog, 13 October 2016 · 175 views

My fire TV arrived today, it's quite small:

I don't have a new TV yet, and my old TV won't support it, so I have it plugged into one of my 4K monitors.  4K content looks awesome on it, as though I were looking out a window:

I've resubscribed to HBO NOW and had an unexpected surprise - another 30 day free trial :D :

I did ha...

Implementing the MIDI Implementation Chart

Posted by Pack007 in Out of the Pack, 12 October 2016 · 103 views

Playing MIDI notes has turned out to be quite easy for Atari BASIC through the RS232-Arduino-MIDI OUT (RAMO) interface (see previous posts in this blog).  Most MIDI instruments have additional functions beyond  receiving the note ON and note OFF commands.   Each MIDI instrument should come with a MIDI Implementation Chart (MIDI-IC) tha...

It's The Beard, Right? - OR - I AM A VEGAN! Yesterday was my day for universal confusion!! The morning started off so clean and simple!  No one in the known world wanted to be my 'friend' and so I was kinda' shocked when a (I guess Indian) man 'liked' one of my comments about veganism and the fact (like science has 'facts'!?!) that plants always survive mass extinctions.  Being the 'oh wh...

It's fair to say I've neglected this blog. But now I'm using it, so that's cool. You probably shouldn't expect updates to be regular.
I'm finally taking the first steps in writing an actual game for the VCS, and I'm doing it from the inside out, more or less. Making sure the individual effects and modules work, and that I thoroughly understand them...

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....
