I remembered a password from 2006!

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 24 October 2014 · 14 views

So I have been using the same computer for years now which remembered my password and automatically typed it in for me. I've done this so many times, I forgot what the password was! I got the password and the site back in 2006. (don't worry, it's not atari2600land.com). But I suddenly and unexpectedly remembered what it was! So I go to net2ftp.com and typ...

Another Update for Draker Quest

Atari 7800

Coding with the use of banks have been a bitch.  I've been getting errors ever since I had to change from 48k to a size higher like 128 or 256k.  It's possibly my coding, but as I added more graphics, that's when I had to choose a higher rom size and then all the errors started happening.  But there's one thing that saved my butt: a backup...

indigoLoop (part 2)

Posted by seemo in The art of being clueless, 23 October 2014 · 46 views

Loops can now be 1 to 32 beats long, and I made a (very) rough attempt at differentiating voice and beat definition rows, using two playfield colors.
 
The result is shown in the following video that you can most surely [s]suffer through enjoy

Better enemy formation indicator

Posted by SpiceWare in SpiceWare's Blog, 20 October 2014 · 162 views

I wasn't quite happy with the alternating radar/formation display. While it worked, I kept getting annoying whenever I'd glance down to check the radar only to see the formation display instead. So I did a quick hack in Stella to see what might happen if I set the players to have 2 copies. First attempt was 2 copies wide:



which didn't pan out due to c...

Able to Test batari Basic Games on a Real TV Again

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 17 October 2014 · 102 views

After getting a smaller computer desk a couple of years ago, I no longer had room for my little color TV. I had to jump through hoops to make my Atari 2600 work with the LCD HDTV that I use with my computer and Xbox 360. It looked OK, but it wasn't the same as 'normal' TV.
 
My sister was getting rid of her 20 inch flat screen TV since she moved on t...

The Princess (Rescue) is in another castle.

Mortal Kombat HD Remix was a fan game project I was following since 3 or 4 years ago.
I'm big fan of classic fighting games, the original MK was one of my favorites, so it was going to be special.
The project goal was recreate the original MK game in high resolution using 3D graphics modeled after the original, respecting the animation, lighting and so on...

Another Milestone

Posted by CyranoJ in CJ's Ramblings, 12 October 2014 · 100 views

Another long gap between posts, but... another milestone hit.
 
Today Rebooteroids ran for the first time from a production Jagtopus board, complete with all high score tables (4 of them) and all game options (control config/audio settings/etc) saved to the card EEPROM chip.
 
Since the last update there have been many changes/fixes/additions,...

Summer is coming to a close and soon it will be too cold to ride the bicycle.   I’m running out of old programs to post and look forward to writing new ones.
 
When I wrote this one back in 1990 I had a lot of hiRes pictures that were produced using Graphics Master and Map Ware (APX).  Both these programs (and a lot mo...

Fun with epoxy!

Posted by Nathan Strum in (Insert stupid Blog name here), 08 October 2014 · 301 views

I recently bought several Sony video presentation stands off eBay for work.
 
As with any eBay purchases, the results were a bit hit-and-miss, especially when it came to packing and shipping. One of the stands was so poorly packed that the camera had broken off, and an entire corner of the base had broken off.

My gameboy Advance acts funny

Posted by Serguei2 in Robin Gravel's Blog, 07 October 2014 · 98 views

I first thought my gameboy advance was dead when I turn the switch on.
 

 
After few tries,  it works again.  I discovered the power switch is faulty,
 
Sometimes, the gameboy resets itself if you touch lightly the power switch.

What time is it? BURGERTIME!

Posted by Crazy Climber in Crazy Climber Metal , 29 September 2014 · 148 views

What time is it? BURGERTIME! Ah, Burgertime...just looking at the side of this arcade machine can transport me back in time decades. Great game that appeared on just about every platform as well. This is one I would not have attempted normally, but my buddy IntellivisionDude mentioned he would like a Burgertime related sign for his gameroom to accompany his INTV Brotherhood sign....

Imagic 1982

Here's a funny one:
 
I just found this letter I had written to Imagic some 33 years ago.  I was trying to give them an Idea for a game I had (unfortunately I don't have the picture or the instructions; I don't know what happened to them).
I can't believe I wrote 'you can even steal it if you want - I won't tell any one' :lol:
 
I do rememb...

The HDX modification for the TI's RS-232 card.

The HDX modification for the TI's RS-232 card. H D X  
Those three little letters bring your TI-99/4A to a whole new level , in fact it's one of the TOP TWO modifications, that in my opinion, are a MUST for everyone who still uses a TI-99/4A.  Whether you are a gamer, a programmer or an all-around user, this MOD really gives the R eal I ron user a lot of bang for their buck.  In fa...

Minecraft studio Mojang has been bought by Microsoft for $2.5B

Additionally, creator Markus "Notch" Persson, partner Jakob Porser and CEO Carl Manneh will also be leaving Mojang.  Even before the sale Markus has tried to move away from Minecraft, but felt that selling out was they only way to continue to be himself.
 
I do wonder how MS plans on recovering it's 2.5 billion dollar investment.  (Esp...

Pele's Soccer (Atari VCS, 1980)
 
As I've said before: "I'm not a sports fan" so how I felt about this game surprised me.
 
Contrasting from our recent excursion into third-party software that had only two games to a cart, Atari's (the party of the first part) Pele's Soccer has 54 games promised for it on the front of the box and it delivers w...
