Install - UAV & AC in the 6-Switch 2600

Posted by Bryan in The UAV Blog, 22 September 2017 · 69 views

Recommended board: Plug-In
The 6-switch 2600 usually has socketed chips, but a soldered in 4050. This isn't a problem though because there's enough room in the shield for a top-mounted socket and Plug-In board, and the 4050 needs to stay anyway as it is used to buffer the joystick triggers (later 2600 revisions don't do this). These instructions s...

Posted by Osgeld in Osgeld's Blog, 21 September 2017 · 107 views

This of course is for the LCD Screen of the integrated SIO2SD 
First I am going to place the LCD screen roughly where I want it, on the 65XE the most appropriate pla...

Controlling the Cassette Motor Control Bit on the A8

Posted by Pack007 in Out of the Pack, 21 September 2017 · 61 views
Cassette, Motor Control

The Cassette Motor Control(CMC) bit in the Port A Controller (PACTL ($D302)) address is going to be used as feed back from the Atari8 to the Arduino in the digital horn project.  This bit controls the logic state of Pin 8 on the SIO port. This bit has been used to control the data cassette motor.  If you're not using the bit to load data from th...

Well, the first day of Fall is tomorrow. How fast time files. Every day on the first day of the season, I make a new comic book. This summer was no different. I had made up some pages of a comic book, and then stopped for a little bit because I was ahead. So I fell behind. Earlier today, I made a few pages of it, scanned it, and put them all together to m...

Old Toonmarty intro

I wonder if this intro is the first try, a kind of a preview of a new show.

The intro is better than the show itself.

Defender, arcade cabinet

Someday it will be mine! I just wanted to write a quick blog entry here to show my intention of acquiring a Defender Arcade cabinet someday.  This game means to me more than I can properly convey.  My younger brother Joey, and I (he much more than I) played for countless hours on the Defender cabinet that they had on the pediatrics floor of St. John's Hospital in Detroi...

New Thoughts on Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan --New Thoughts on Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan---
Seeing Star Trek 2 on the big screen was the first time I've been able to do that since I was in the 5th grade. Naturally it was a big deal and for so many reasons 1) the phaser fire effect in the ship battles 2) James Horner's theme music 3) the story 4) The awesome uniforms. In truth, there was...

DIY microconsole part 2

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 07 September 2017 · 133 views

I now have MAME (2003 - 0.78) up and running, woot!  I've loaded up "the best of" from pre-1986, now I need to figure out how to set the controls beyond the defaults.  This also means I can play the originals rather than the console ports.
I'm also working on getting Colecovision running.  I've created a script which creates a playli...

Atari Comics

Posted by troff in Troff the Shelf, 05 September 2017 · 130 views

I wanted to collect together all the Atari-related comic books that I'm aware of.  Back when Warner owned Atari, they also owned DC comics, making them a natural pair.
First, there are the mini-comics that were bundled into Atari 2600 games.  The Atari Force DC mini comics came bundled with Defender, Berzerk, Star Raiders, Phoenix, a...

Oscilloscope Graphics with the TI 99/4A Computer

Posted by Vorticon in Vorticon's Blog, 31 August 2017 · 230 views

I recently came across videos on YouTube showing how to use an arduino to create graphics on an oscilloscope. The basic idea was to use a digital to analog converter (DAC) to convert digital signals from the arduino into analog voltages which could be then fed into an oscilloscope set up in XY mode to create what essentially amounts to cartesian drawings....

Ghostbusters (2016) [It does not inhabit the same universe as the originals.]

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 26 August 2017 · 189 views

I get STARZ for free and I noticed that the 2016 Ghostbusters was going to be on, so I recorded it. I was out of things to keep me company while doing tedious work on my web site, so I started watching/listening to it.
Since the movie came out, various people have been arguing that the film is a continuation, not a remake or a re...

Just realized that I've been working on this project for over a year now.  Kind of scary, but then again, Ratcatcher took at least three years.  Of course, Ratcatcher was my first 5200 game so there was a lot to learn.
I've completed the the new physics system, as least as far as basic rock movement is concerned,  The new system is m...

Aging Gamers: It's Time for Developers to Rethink How They Structure the Gaming Experience

aging gamers, video game design and 1 more...

As I approach my mid-30s, an issue in gaming has been weighing on me more and more over the past few years. I find myself increasingly frustrated with how modern games attempt to structure my game time in ways that are often incompatible with my responsibilities and commitments. While I was never a gamer of immense skill, as a kid I could play through dif...
