Time to play!

Posted by SpiceWare in SpiceWare's Blog, 29 May 2017 · 46 views

This blog entry is short and sweet!
 
All the features of the last DPC+ version of Draconian are back in place, so the game is once again playable.
 
As a reminder the difficulty switches are currently used for:
Left: A = display VB and OS time remaining (only meaningful on real hardware), B = display score
Right: A = freeze screen (used to rev...

I'm having a hard time with Ants. First I couldn't get text working. And when I finally did that, I discovered that if I try to make an image with a bit depth lower than 16, Photoshop decides to screw up the picture for no good reason. I don't know what to do about this. I don't know if I can fit all that I would like to in 4 MB. I tried to make the simpl...

The Beginning of my Atari Odyssey!

Rediscovering Atari and 1 more...

The Beginning of my Atari Odyssey! In December 2016, after being inspired by several YouTube channels, I decided to have a go at creating one myself. My initial idea  - using the fictional character of Lord Fortescue - was to replay games from my youth. I grew up, and still live, in the UK, and so most games I played were on what we used to call 'micro-computers'! These included Sincl...

No other video game stacks up to Atari.
 
You can’t top Atari for fun.
 
In fact, the Atari Video Computer System is so much fun you'll want to play it all the tim...

MIDI MUSIC SYSTEM and Two Synth Drums

Posted by Pack007 in Out of the Pack, 27 May 2017 · 65 views
Midi, mms, drum

 
A second Atari8 running SYNDRUM3.BAS was added to the MIDI chain without timing problems.  There didn't seem to be a delay between the sounds from the two computers when playing 2 drum sounds on the same beat.   Listen to the drum patterns and judge for yourself.
 

 
THE SECOND DRUM
 
Since the SYNDRUM program onl...

Powering on a TI SR-51-II

TI, Electronics, Hardware, Twitch

A short while ago I got a 1976 TI SR-51-II calculator from a thrift store, without the power supply that goes with it, which is important because the calculator uses its own proprietary NiCad battery pack, which has long been dead. While I partially got the calculator just for looks, it would be nice to actually be able to use it.
 
The first youtube...

Junior year is over and this fall will be my senior year. Time flew by quick because I was just starting 8th grade when I first came here.

TIA Audio Noise Generator redux

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 19 May 2017 · 77 views

In the comments for http://atariage.com/...3844-blast-off/ there was some discussion on whether the TIA could be used to generate speech.
 
Previously I'd done some programming which tried to brute-force fit the TIA waveforms to music.  The results were less than impressive, but speech might be simple enough to achieve better...

RealSports Curling

Well, look at that.  What is it, you ask?
 
Just a memory dump of location $600.  $600 is the scratch area that I'm using for the scoring algorithm.  If you don't know, curling scoring works as follows:
 
The team with the closest rock to the center of the rings scores one point, plus one additional point for each of thei...

The Rover Pipeline: What a mess!

Posted by simbalion in Musings of the White Lion, 16 May 2017 · 122 views

It's been getting interesting here of late in my area of Ohio with the Rover Pipeline being built. The company building it, Energy Transfer Associates or something like that, has really been racking up the problems. This is the same company that flattened a historic farm property in Carrol county last year without any sort of permission or warning to the...

Blog 2

Blog 2 YAY!!!  A successful superimposition!
 
Last winter, some meanies vandalized an ice sculpture in our downtown area, knocking out the letter "i" in our city.  Soooooo, I superimposed one of Papa's recent photos and made HIM the I in Richmond.
 
This was great fun and highly amusing to me.
 
P.S.  I will work on better blog tit...

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 - Spoiler-free review

Posted by Nathan Strum in (Insert stupid Blog name here), 10 May 2017 · 265 views
Movies

I really enjoyed the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie . Probably in part because I had absolutely no preconceived idea of what it would be about, or who the characters were, or anything about it, really.
 
But now, they've actually got something to live up to, since the movie's been on TV a dozen times (and I've watched it besides that on Blu-ray...

Original Post follows, with update at the bottom!
 
I've been playing Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine on X360 Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection.   Oh what a frustrating battle, but I finally beat the quest mode and beat Dr. Robotnik's level, and got the achievement.  
 
I wonder how many gamers, without skipping directly to t...

Archipelagos Remake - Ideas Central

Posted by Tickled_Pink in TP's Blog, 30 April 2017 · 166 views

It's been a while since I did anything with this project. I've been working on a couple of simpler mobile games (one loosely based on the Amiga game, Oxyd). I'm going to try to put a few days' worth of work into this one this week.
 
The latest is that the game itself is working fine. After the previous update I went back to debugging the issues with...

Roundabout Racer - Using Atari to Report the News

Journalism, Roundabout Racer and 1 more...

Roundabout Racer - Using Atari to Report the News Using a video game to communicate a news story is not a new idea, but is still considered very innovative. Generally, the news consumer gains a better understanding of an issue through the interactive experience. In covering the transportation debate in Wisconsin, I tried something entirely different. I programmed a game called Roundabout Racer (developme...

Star Trek, The Next Generation

"Ugh ugh ugh...I hated Dr. Pulaski on Star Trek!" Initial comment on Facebook by a friend:
"Ugh ugh ugh...I hated Dr. Pulaski on Star Trek!" Comment 1 :Yeah. She did suck. Comment 2: She worked some nerves. Comment 3: She wasn't that bad. My Comment:
You have to remember it in context. Gates McFadden was actually really flat as an actress the first season. Really they all were and try...

Wonderswan Podcast update

Posted by PhilipTheWhovian in PhilipTheWhovian's Blog, 25 April 2017 · 200 views

Hello everyone,
I just thought of a new title for the Wonderswan podcast and I am wondering what everyone thinks.
I am thinking of calling it "Owned by the Queen".
For those of you who do not understand the pun, in the UK (where I live), there is a common misconception that the queen owns all swans in the UK.
I am still working on the podcasts, but it wil...
