I got a PS Vita

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 29 November 2015 · 20 views

Well, I bit the bullet and finally did it. I got a used PS VIta. I had to reset it and it said it was going to set up a trial period of the PlayStation Network. There was no way to say "No, I don't want it." But it seemed interesting that all it did was ask me for my birthdate. No name or anything. How odd. I'm wondering if I actually need the PSN in orde...

11/29/15 - Whistle While You Work

Posted by Philflound in Song I Wake Up To, 29 November 2015 · 14 views

I was waiting for a cartoon song to appear. I love singing cartoons and this one was in my head when I got up this morning. Of course it's Snow White singing it. Have fun.

Glowing Sky Photos

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 28 November 2015 · 37 views

This morning the clouds were so bright yellow, red, and pink that it made the shades glow in an interesting way, so I grabbed an iPhone and took some quick photos before it all went away. Of course, none of the images look as good as what I was seeing with my own eyes. The photo of the shades is especially disappointing. I couldn't capture the weird glo...

7800, Dungeon Stalker

I posted this in the AA store, too.  
Dungeon Stalker    snuck up on me. I wasn't prepared for its amalgamation of excellent gaming ideas!  At first glance, it looked like a simple 7800 port of INTV Night Stalker.  But I feel that DS is more interesting and more fun than the original Night Stalker.  DS is a static maz...

This is all I have time to write. I will hopefully do more...

The great Gazoo (Tony Knerr)

Tony Knerr

The great Gazoo (Tony Knerr) I urge anyone reading this blog to post comments and add material that would remind us of great people who shaped the world of TI 99/4A.
I have only recently started to learn about the rich history of the TI as I had put my TI on a shelve for 30 years, but a month ago I wondered why I should not try to turn it on and start reliving my childhood....

Wah wah wah wah, wah wah, wah wah wah wah.
Sorry... couldn't resist .  :D
I've been a Peanuts fan as far back as I can remember. I read Peanuts books and drew Peanuts cartoons as soon as I was old enough to read a book or hold a crayon. I've still got a picture I drew as a little kid of Snoopy's dog house (a cutaway view showing the ins...

Arranging "Monty on the Run" in a TI-99/4A ISR Sound List

Posted by OLD CS1 in OLD CS1's Blog, 10 November 2015 · 131 views

Arranging "Monty on the Run" in a TI-99/4A ISR Sound List Vorticon asked me to provide the sound effects for his TI conversion of Jetpac .  I started working on them and at the same time picked back up on Rasmus' challenge to me to arrange "Monty on the Run."  I have been bouncing between Jetpac and Monty , as well as my A/Rexx script to manipulate ISR sound list binaries. Tonight I was playing with...

Nintendo's Sound Drivers (A Small Tale on the Differences of Sound Between the Original Zelda and Zelda II's Soundtrack)

Posted by AtariLynx Lover in A.L.L.'s Blog, 09 November 2015 · 117 views

Some days ago, while listening to some of the Zelda II soundtrack, I noticed something - it's possible you may have noticed it too. Zelda II 's soundtrack sounds inherently different from the original Zelda . And not just due to the composer, either - (Koji Kondo in The Legend of Zelda , while Akito Nakatsuka did the music for Zelda II: The Adventure of...

Making the sensor for an A8 bike speedometer

bike, speedometer, sensor

Making the sensor for an A8 bike speedometer I’ve been playing around with the idea of hooking up my training bike to the Atari A8 computer for quite a few years.  Last winter I put about 600 miles on the bike while watching NETFLIX and listening to The ANTIC podcasts. Sitting on the bike also gave me some time to think about some of the cool programs and games that could be controlled by...

No, 5 Must Read Books for Perl Programmers

Posted by scrottie in scrottie's Blog, 29 October 2015 · 159 views

In response to http://blog.builtinp...erl-programmers , with apologies:  Perl programmers, in my experience, tend to know Perl very well.  They don't need to know more Perl.  However, having often come from self-taught background, the larger field of CS seems to be what's missing, and they tend to take refuge...

Every Atari-published cartridge I own for the Atari 5200 now has a spot in the Games of Atari website.  This means Countermeasure and Rescue on Fractalus finally have live entries, Kangaroo , Vanguard and Qix are no longer flying on solo shots, and of course the entry for Pac-Man just keeps getting bigger.

I had an idea come to me at work when I'm by myself, peace and quiet while I place cookies on a cardboard trays.  Why don't I abuse the play_sound function some more.  Each sound data can be the single instrument and tone.  Maybe put about 10-20 instrumental tone in different pitches on the sound list.  Play_sound function can retrieve...
