More work on Golf

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 22 May 2019 · 24 views

So I worked on Golf last night and today some more. The title screen now looks like this:

I learned that MESS widens the TV screen and I needed to make the screenshot 800x600 to see how it would look on a real TV. Went to sleep and got up at 2PM again. Noticed carlsson was having trouble with diagonal movements, so I looked in the code to see how I was...

Verdict: poor mechanism gameplay.

Cruis'in Twitter - Bubsy defeats Oinker ! - May 2019

Bubsy Bobcat, Paws on Fire

Cruis'in Twitter - Bubsy defeats Oinker ! - May 2019 SpongeFox finished the game a few days ago (I was amazed) and after about three nights of solid play for hours I was able to collect the 75 hero tokens needed to take on Oinker, the third baws (boss).  
 
At the moment I love playing the Bubsy, Woolie, and Arnold levels with Virgil levels seeming very laborious.  I HATE the pick ups...

Adventure

Worked half the night to implement new features...More of a push to be accurate to the original.
 
Tons of progress, next release will have more but that is not the exciting news.
 
Came up with an almost automated way of transferring my game for use in my VDD and here are the new pictures on real, physical hardware.

Marauder (Tigervision)

Posted by DoctorSpuds in DoctorSpuds Reviews Things, 21 May 2019 · 52 views

Marauder (Tigervision) I think we can all agree that Tigervision was an all around okay company, they published some pretty excellent games like Polaris and Jawbreaker, but they also had a few stinkers as well. But apart from their incredibly rare and expensive games and their incredibly terrible games there were a few in the middle that just seem to get no attention whatsoever...

Temporary title

In case you're wondering.... I started writing this a couple of weeks ago under the title: "Temporary title". I got used to it, and don't feel like coming up with something else.  :roll: 
 
Every year around this time, for the past... well, it's been awhile, and I'm too lazy to look through my old blog posts... we'll just say several years,...

Net Metering Active!

Posted by SpiceWare in SpiceWare's Blog, 17 May 2019 · 59 views

Received my electric bill for April 15 thru May 15:
 

 

 
At 9am this morning my meter showed 293 kWh total of excess solar production had been sent since turning on my panels .  The bill shows I was credited for 254 kWh thru the 15th, so it appears they've credited me for most, if not all, of the excess solar.

Finally, I'm Playing MIDI Notes using MAC/65 Assembler Code

MIDI, Arduino

Do you remember me mentioning that the first attempt to write a machine language program to  read MIDI data delivered to the Atari joystick port was a complete failure?  The Arduino hardware has remained the same. The joystick trigger and cassette motor control(CMC) pin on the SIO port are still being used to control data flow.  But this ti...

What is the value of a $40 power supply?

Posted by OLD CS1 in OLD CS1's Blog, 06 May 2019 · 76 views

What is the value of a $40 power supply? What is the value of a $40 power supply? To the guy who built it, that may be $20 in parts and some labor, plus the time to research the necessary parts and the recognition of the need for the product in the first place.  What about when he ships out the wrong power supply and then exchanges it, but through an eBay quirk the buyer winds up not paying...

I have spent about a year researching this on the interwebs. combing through many discussion forums, and studying many photos and my own personal collection, I think I have finally have a answer. The quick answer is.....every six switch ma...

ti-99/4a, ti-99, Peter Kull and 5 more...

A few years ago I came across this disk of extensions to XB and was intrigued. It had nice high resolution capabilities and some interesting clock functions. I initially did some research and found it was released by Peter Kull in Germany in the 80s and that he has since disappeared from the TI99 scene. Not much more was known about it.

YouTube can fucking burn in hell.

Posted by Dragon Princess Yushira in DPYushira's Entertainment Blog, 01 May 2019 · 125 views

Just found out from my oldest sister that YouTube had terminated the PurrfectTrio account and it all started with a bogus copyright claim for a song that had nothing to do with Korea whatsoever. The so called copyrighted song translates to F World (instrumental) where the video in question (177 for PC88) had no music. To make things even more fucked up, t...
