This list is just the start: I am sure I have missed more than a few!

 

I know there are differences in contributions and products made by the folks listed here: in my opinion they all deserve a great thank you and a beer!  :grin:

 

Please feel free to add to the list of current/recent A8 coders and creators and let's express thanks for them all!

All current/recent A8 coders and creators of software and hardware are to be acknowledged and thanked here.  :thumbsup:

 
Current/recent and contemporary coders and creators meaning going back the last 10 years (or so); this is subjective but 10 years or so seems fair, reasonable and proper for the spirit of the thread (I hope!).
If at all possible, absolutely anyone and everyone who is still creating new stuff for the A8 should be acknowledged and thanked.

 

Please keep this thread positive: it should only serve as testament of appreciation for the hard work and efforts of those who continue to make great software and hardware for the A8!

 

Best Regards

Fingolfin

thanks Fingolfin  :thumbsup: and others :thumbsup:

people might not think of it but the little bits of feedback given here and there make a big difference to keeping people motivated. I've been working on my abbuc game (Ski-it) on and off since last year's contest and you can get to the point where you get fed up with your own game or have spent days (weeks) on a particular problem. Some days I dig out one of my abbuc mugs for a nice cup of tea to remind me to put in another shift :)

Completely updated (for now) above in first post.

Trying to keep/maintain alphabetical order.  :-o

 

Please add more names as appropriate and let's continue to thank our A8 coders and creators in big bold typeface!  :)

 

Thank you to all who read this post and thank you in advance to all who consider contributing to this post.  :thumbsup:

It's truly great to have so many dedicated people in this strange hobby of ours. While my own contribution is but a little patch I fully second trbb in that all feedback received on the way helps in keeping the momentum. Thanks to y'all!

Thank you foft, I'll add these coders and creators names now!  :thumbsup:

 

And thank you slx!   :thumbsup:

 

All A8 coders and creators need to be recognized and thanked!  :grin:

It isn't too hard to tell who contributes what and how much -- some folks have more time, some folks are more prolific, point is lots and lots of individuals contribute to the great A8 scene we all benefit from; what and how much isn't important here in this particular post.

We say thank you to all A8 coders and creators and that we appreciate all the hours of dedication and hard work from all who develop and work on projects for A8.  :thumbsup:

 

THANK YOU! 

 

Thanks for coding, creating and sharing in whatever way you see fit!  :)

We appreciate it very much!  You're the coolest!  :cool:

 

Is the list for software people only or for hardware guys too?

In that case I would have more people to add.

 

 

I think there are already a couple of hardware guys in the main listing; yes, let's include all coders and creators!

 

Thank you Philsan for adding more names who deserve credit and our collective thanks!  Keep 'em coming!  

I'll keep up -- might take a while to get all in the right place alpha-numerically though!  :lol:

Updated to include folks mentioned by rdea6; thank you very much for mentioning and recognizing them, rdea6!

 

I would like to add the guys who made Bosconian as well; intended to recognize them as well from the start but have only full names.

Although I'm trying to stick with user names/screen names, I've included a few full names in parenthesis as they were listed or identified by others here with either user name, real name or both.

 

Thank you very much to Janusz Chabowski, Michal Szpilowski and Krzystof Ziembik for making and sharing Bosconian 8 bit!  :jango:

 

If anyone knows their user names/screen names (if they're members here), please post them!  Thanks in advance!

 

I'm not trying to be exclusive in any way...although being a limited mortal human being in my late 40's with lots of idiosyncratic preferences, I am apt to be subjective.  ;)

 

You all know I'm still new here too (though I am glad to no longer be a Space Invader  :P ), so please keep adding names of A8 coders and creators who should be thanked and recognized here!

The list looks good, can't add to it but I can still thank each and every one of them for their time, hard work, money and motivation, you keep the machine alive and exceeding standards never thought possible...Huge thanks...

 

I'd also like to include as a side note the membership of AA on these forums, you guys give idea's, memories, friendly chat and a camaraderie where every one seems a friend looking after the other friends..Same with the Atari Sector folks, sometimes just the chat hits the happy spot and that is as important to me. And a personal thank you to all for the listening and help with my daughter, its been a wonderful kindness..

 

Paul..

Just to clarify that kiwilove is not me - that is Harvey who does the graphics on the games we've done together.

 

Another user to add is darryl1970 who did the graphics on the hacks of Popeye, Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr.

 

Cheers,

Paul

Some already asked this, but I didn't see an answer given. Is the term 'Creator' and this topic only to be applied to software, or is this also in reference to new hardware design?
