Four Lives To Live

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 23 April 2018 · 33 views

I couldn't tear myself apart from working on the game again. So I added lives. And a life counter. So when you get hit, the burger crashes downwards and a life is subtracted once he hits bottom. So you get four lives to start with. I had a terrible time with this. Total time spent with lives: about 3 hours. My primary problem was the score was flickering...

Currently, few people have a decent 3D printer, even fewer people have the design skills to create cool stuff on them.  It's really no problem because here at AtariAge we have a diverse community.  We have people with almost every skill to fill almost every available niche.  One member, who goes by "COREi64 " has the printer, the skill set...

Waking From A Coma

Posted by mojofltr in Beware of Kiwi, 22 April 2018 · 76 views

On March 26th, I fell into a coma.  I began waking up around the 8th of April, but it has been a tedious process of learning how to eat, walk, talk, etc.  I was released from the hospital on the 18th and although I have a few hypotheses as to what put me into a coma, I have very little memory of that day and my head is incredibly mixed up from I...

Pesco - Atari 2600

Posted by Marc Oberhäuser in Marc Oberhäuser's Blog, 10 April 2018 · 108 views

The Ebivision game boxes are known to be totally flimsy (with the exception Power Off, available in the AA store) and not available anymore. Dan suggested that it would be a good idea to update the box quality. I tried to get in touch with Ebivision to get the official blessing but couldn't get a contact address. Since the boxes aren't available anymore I...

RealSports Curling

Posted by AverageSoftware in AverageSoftware's Development Blog, 03 April 2018 · 87 views

So I have some nifty non-gameplay related things to show off.
 
The first is my fantastic title screen:
 

 
I made the logo by firing up the GIMP, finding the fanciest looking font I could, and then just typing out the word "Curling."  I then scaled it down to Atari 5200 resolution.
 
I painstakingly converted the first two lett...

Posted by Thomas Jentzsch in For whom it may concern, 03 April 2018 · 108 views

After participating  in 2015 myself and therefore starting to watch it for the first time, the Revision  demoparty has become a fixed date in my schedule. So I did spend Eastern watching the Revision 2018  via Twitch live stream (and YouTube for the too late events).
 
And it was a blast again! Not all compos, but most of them. Besides...

Posted by Osgeld in Osgeld's Blog, 02 April 2018 · 86 views

Yea its been since September of 2017 since I actually did anything, but I was re-arranging my shelf of stuff the other day and said "hey you do not have any projects that are paying you money for a couple weeks, put down the brand new (to me) coco 3 and work on the Atari!"
 
In my last update I cut a gigantic hole in the front of my case to accommoda...

Opinions on Harmony

I found out about it yesterday(3/18/18) and took interest in getting one so I could play Princess Rescue and DK VCS along with other Homebrews using the Binaries acquired from the website, but, I want to support the homebrew scene by purchasing physical H...
