That was great. Thanks. just watched it end to end.
Of course now I need a copy of Your Friend the EXEC and the enhanced exec.rom with double resolution and running 3x speed.
Auto Racing was another favorite back in the day. One of the few 1 player games I had, so it got tons of play time.
I thought I was good at Astrosmash when I would play to 400K with 300 extra ships, I would just stop playing.
A few years back, I tried to see how high i could score. Well, I think at 700K... I couldn't believe how hard the game got.
Though I pretty much stink at games now, so maybe I could have hit the scoring bug @12, but I don't think so.
Kieth was clearly in his element!
Is this a joke, or is there actually an enhanced version of the EXEC available?
I remember the first time I talked to Keith. He called me from his ancient mid-90s cell phone from his car to talk about the emulator I had written. He wanted to use it rather than start from scratch, to get the Intellivision Lives collection out there as quickly as he could. I was honored to be a part of it, to make a small contribution to a new Intellivision revival.
He was very cool, and as others have mentioned, laid-back.
It was the best day of my life. I talked to a Blue Sky Ranger! They wanted to use something I'd written! What could be better? Keith made that possible.
We use to exchange emails. We talked about his game, ECS basic, and other things. He was always very enthusiastic about Intellivision.
Unfortunately, around when the collection was finally released, we had a bit of a falling out which I now understand was really my fault.
I never heard from Keith again, which saddened me a great deal. But once I made an order through his website, and he ended up giving me my order free of charge! So, even though we weren't talking anymore, he still showed his appreciation for what I did. Very cool of him.
Thanks Keith, for all the good memories.
