Back in 2011 I wrote a program in BB that could control the Nintendo R.O.B. robot from an Atari 2600 and a TV screen flashes.
Here is the original thread from back them.
http://atariage.com/...endo-rob-robot/
I recently recovered from a major PC issue, and the last thing I recovered was the source code for that project. I have always said I wanted to release it, and have it available for purchase on AtariAge. But, I don't know how to actually do that.
I would hate to lose it for real some day when it would be cool if someone else could use it for something more interacting.
Also I had/have a program that controls 3D glasses (I originally used the old Sega 3D glasses, then got some other one to test with). It cycles the screen image in sync with the glasses LCD shutter so (extremely poor) 3D images can be possible on a 2600.
If I am going to have AtariAge sell them, should I not release the source code?

Color me interested, I've wondered about the same for my own project(s).

contact "Albert" here in the forums - he owns AtariAge

Why don't you simply post here what you have? Most people do it that way.

You can consider github, bitbucket and few other similar services.  That's where most open source code projects live.

Do you mean just put the code in a post? I haven't been on this site in years and haven't looked at other's projects in a looonnnggg time. I'll make a new thread and put the source code in that for it and each of my other projects.
I'll look at where the other BB stuff is.

This ^^^ was the first thought I had as well.

I posted it in the BatarBasic section.  And yeah, not on FaceBook, no desire.
