I'm going to talk to my A/V teacher about setting up the game I made "Frog Pickle" with bB at my school's tech showcase in May. I'm gonna print the ASM source Code and the bB source to compare.

Any Other Ideas?

You mean with a Harmony cart on a real Atari 2600 or an emulator on a PC?

You HAVE to have it running on a real system! That's just outta the question right there.

If you're planning to show a comparison between the batari Basic code and the assembly code that was generated from it, then you could take it a step further and show the machine code (hexadecimal numbers) corresponding to the assembly code. That way you could show how assembly code makes it easier to understand machine code, and how a high-level language like batari Basic makes it even easier to write programs.

Ah good idea, and I will be running on a real system, but the only problem is the only bB Homebrew I Have is my own, and I dont own a Harmony cart or have the money to buy one right now. I was thinking though, I could take my computer, and make an account with a Hex Editor open, Kwrite (text editor) with the bB and the ASM, and then RT's website open as well and the bB forums.

The TV I'm using is a 1986 RCA 19" TV with Woodgrain also so it will be how an Atari should look.

I confirmed it with my teacher today, Yes this is happening. Here is what Im going to have with me:

My RCA Tv
An iMac purchased by the school in september
My Atari
A couple of Coleco Games (to show what bad things can be produced with asm also)
Frog Pickle
A Stelladaptor (if I can buy one soon)
2 Joysticks (if available)
My Atari 800xl and a Machine Language Book, plus a Memory Map (to show what you'd need to program back then)


Displayed on the iMac will be:
Stella
ASM, HEX, and bB source code
other bB made Games
RT's Website
Atari Age Forums
An Explanation of how the 2600 works and how it's different from most classic systems (NES, ColecoVision, etc.)
how the compiler works
and if you guys have any ideas for it I'm glad to listen!



and also, I would like some FINISHED bB games... here's what I have so far:

Frog Pickle
Trashmania: REMIX 2012
Seaweed Assault
Epic Adventure

I need more! Any Suggestions/links would be much much much appreciated.

Some of my games reached 1.0 status. How about:

NiteBear on SleepyStreet
http://www.atariage....n-sleepystreet/

CandyBar
http://www.atariage....for-atari-2600/

Both have source posted. Nitebear was signed by Freddy Krueger and CandyBar was featured by Panic, Inc.

In no particular order...

Evil Magician Returns

Jrok's Circus Galacticus and Charge! are still WIPs, but are more polished than a lot of people's final releases. Both very playable and impressive.

I'm not sure if there was a rom released for Dungeon, but if there was it would be a good one to add.

atari2600land has a ton of games, but I'm not sure which ones are finished and have a rom released.

My own 21 Blue would be... inappropriate. :P

I've got a new game I'm working on now called Ghost, that actually has a level editor. The game itself is fully done, but doesn't have any sound.

Ghost

Game Catcher

Auto Mayhem

Musician II



By the way, I f--king LOVE your display picture. I'm a HUGE John Lennon fan here! ^^
