Don't hit the walls

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 25 November 2015 · 18 views

I worked all night on this, trying various things to make it work. But I think I did it. I added walls to bump into. I only kind of understand the code for this, though. What is really perplexing is that the code table for the rules of the maze has 15 rows while the actual maze has 20, yet it all seems to work together some how, in a way I don't understan...

11/25/15 - Philadelphia Freedom

Posted by Philflound in Song I Wake Up To, 24 November 2015 · 25 views

Not sure why, but I woke up 3 times this morning before I finally got up. All three times Philadelphia Freedom was going in my head again. Since this is a repeat song, I'm not going to link it again. Still working on yesterday's entry, which it's possible it was an early Madonna song, so I'm checking those to see. But the voice seems to have a slightly hi...

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

Personality Test: INTP-T

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 22 November 2015 · 58 views

I stumbled upon some blog and the guy mentioned that he had an INFJ personality type according to the Briggs Meyers test, so I looked it up. I took the first free test that popped up in the search results and it claims that I'm an INTP-T :

I did not pay for their "premium profile" and I did no...

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 · 115 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 · 108 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

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 · 148 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.

Atari 5200, Koffi Kopter

I was working with clay with others, didn't know what to make, then an idea hit me.  Koffi Kopter and Pyro the Stormcloud.  Turned out pretty good, especially since I had not dabbled with clay since high school art class.  So I took a couple pictures and finally decided to post them here.

Music Driver

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...
