#3674198 Love the new coming soon book with the homebrews

It is technically called a "booklet" in printing terms.  It's a 12-page catalog of games that will be out soon (one of the games, Rebooteroids, is already in the store).  Boxes are currently being printed, and I'll be placing an order for the manuals soon.  :)

I can confirm there is a list, however, I am not the keeper of it. :D

 

You're also not on it!  :D




#3672884 Pokey Questions

We do plan on eventually having a POKEY replacement (called the HOKEY), but that's a longer-term project.

#3672876 Pokey Questions

Posted by Albert on Sun Jan 15, 2017 8:11 PM

None of the games currently sold in the AtariAge Store are using a board where you could add a POKEY chip.  I will be adding two new games that require the POKEY:

 

- Super Circus AtariAge 

- Bentley Bear's Crystal Quest 

 

These games require a POKEY chip for audio. 

 

I also plan on adding POKEY versions of Beef Drop and Pac-Man Collection to the store.  Additionally, once Froggie enters the store, it will have a POKEY version as an option.  These three games you will only be able to purchase in a POKEY flavor if you first send me one or more POKEY chips or Ballblazer carts.  I simply do not have enough POKEY chips to make a large number of POKEY games. 

 

Once I exhaust my supply of POKEY chips, Super Circus AtariAge and Bentley Bear will also require you to send in POKEYs or Ballblazers in order to receive a copy of the game.

#3671261 Road Rash pre-alpha on Jaguar at 30 fps

Posted by Albert on Fri Jan 13, 2017 3:07 PM

Are you going to threaten banning all those that keep insulting me all the time, too ? Just want to hear an honest answer, that's all.

 

First, two wrongs don't make a right.  Second, I only see people helping or asking legitimate questions in this thread, so please point out the posts where people are insulting you in a similar fashion to what you're doing.

Enough of your insults or your next sabbatical will be a permanent one away from AtariAge. This isn't the first time you've been warned, but it will be your last.

need double added to list

 

Hmmm, I wonder what happened to that list...




#3670587 Wanted: 2600 manual scans

Posted by Albert on Thu Jan 12, 2017 5:57 PM

Well I have them all on my site, so if Atari Age would like to use them they are more than welcome to.  I got them from someone here on the forums and just figured I would make it easily accessible in a page like that

 

A zip file of all the 2600 PDFs would be useful.  I could pretty easily add a PDF download for each of these manuals from their respective entries in the database.  Extracting the images and making them viewable alongside other manuals might take a bit more work.

So, we are just waiting on Albert to launch the game in the store? :D

 

Yes.




#3669334 Xevious on Jaguar

Posted by Albert on Tue Jan 10, 2017 11:29 PM

Man, Skip, I love your idea!  That first tune is great, I could definitely rock to that (or something similar) while playing Xevious.  :)

#3669096 Is Jaguar Emulation dead?

Posted by Albert on Tue Jan 10, 2017 4:47 PM

After consultation with my colleagues, all Jaguar emulation must be deleted.

 

You know, if you're not really interested in a topic and just want to crap on it, you could move along to another that's more up your alley.

#3668613 Wanted: Feedback for Beef Drop (cribbed from NoSwearGamer)

Posted by Albert on Mon Jan 9, 2017 10:53 PM

I just got into the 7800 scene a little late. I would love to have a Pokey Version of BD!!  :(

 

I'll gladly make one for anyone who can send me a Ballblazer cart.  :)

#3666360 No New Content

Posted by Albert on Fri Jan 6, 2017 8:19 PM

I see it from time to time too. Also seems to be a glitch where "no new content" shows when new members have joined. In other words, instead of new content, you get a list of new members. Hit 'View New Content' again or refresh, then the new topics will appear afterwards. This glitch (or accidental non-correlated feature) has been going on for years now.

 

The "View New Content" is context-sensitive, depending where you are in the site.  If you're in the Messenger or viewing a member profile and you hit "View New Content", it'll show a list of members.  This is very likely why you are seeing "View New Content" displaying members.  The search is the same way -- if you're in the Messenger or viewing a member profile and you do a search, it will search members instead of the forums.  Not a very good design, to be sure.  Now that you know that, hopefully this will be helpful information.
