#3905837 Atari Jaguar to 5200 Controller Adapter Project

Posted by Albert on Wed Dec 6, 2017 12:56 PM

Always nice to have alternatives to the 5200 controllers for games that work fine with digital inputs.  :)

#3902113 TI Forum Post Attachments

Posted by Albert on Fri Dec 1, 2017 1:21 PM

Just wondering if everyone here can handle 7-zip compressed file(s).  And also what graphic formats this forum recognizes.

 

I'm also looking at clearing out some of my attachments from older posts.  What is the maximum limit on user file space here??

 

There is no limit and no need to remove older attachments.

Having played an early version of this, it's going to be pretty incredible.  :)

#3901475 Aw Snap! on Chrome

Posted by Albert on Thu Nov 30, 2017 4:36 PM

Nothing's changed on the forum end.  I sometimes see that after Chrome has been running for a long time or there are some pages that are rather resource intensive.  I usually restart the browser when that happens.

#3901255 RSS Feed of just this FORUM?

Posted by Albert on Thu Nov 30, 2017 11:25 AM

Apple's Safari web browser has built-in RSS support, and it seems to work fine there..

That's with two feeds (Atari Systems Forums and the TI-99/4A Forums).  

 

Will see if I can find a free, standalone RSS reader.

I just created an RSS feed for the two TI-99/4A forums:

You can see all the RSS feeds available if you click the small RSS icon at the bottom of the page.  I can change the number of topics exported and the frequency it updates if need be.

#3900673 RT needs our help

Posted by Albert on Wed Nov 29, 2017 4:30 PM

It says no fees apply. PayPal took a small bite out of a couple of the donations, though.

 

Yeah, depends how people pay.  If people send you a regular payment (for "goods and services"), you'll lose something like 30 cents and 2.9% of each transaction.  If they send it as a "friends and family" payment, there is no fee for the recipient (although PayPal will sometimes charge a fee to the sender).

Do they take a cut if you add that though? Don't want to see them getting any money that would otherwise go straight to RT.

 

No, it's just so you can add donations from outside GoFundMe so the total donated is correct.  They'll only take a fee for anything that was paid through GoFundMe.

RT,  you can add the PayPal donations to the gofundme campaign so the total donated is properly reflected.  When you're logged in, click on the "Donations" link at the top and then "Donations" again.  When the page loads, you'll see a "Add Offline Donation" link in the upper-right.  You can then put in the amount of each donation and the person who donated it (and it can optionally be displayed publicly as "Anonymous").

Just kicked in something as well.  I was just looking at the 7800 Basic documentation on Random's page two days ago, as I'll probably develop a 7800 game using it sometime next year..

#3898015 New Atari PONG Electromechanical game

Posted by Albert on Sat Nov 25, 2017 6:02 PM

I didn't see this at IAAPA (the show is huge, and we were only there about half of one day), but they did bring one of the tables to the Free Play Florida show where it was setup in front of the AtariAge booth Saturday and Sunday.  I had the opportunity to play it a bit, and watch many others play. It's a pretty cool idea and executed well, and it certainly attracts quite a bit of attention.

 

My main grief with it, though, is the paddles are too slow.  The paddle does not move fast enough to get to the ball if it's far enough away from your paddle.  This makes the game a bit frustrating if you're used to playing any paddle-based PONG games where the paddle works as a true analog controller and you can whip it around quickly. 

 

If they can improve this aspect, I'd be much happier with it.

#3895731 Draconian (2600)

Posted by Albert on Wed Nov 22, 2017 9:27 AM

My Buddy Capt. Bob picked me up a copy at PRGE but no manuals were included. Waiting for Albert to let me know how I get a manual :)

 

There's just one manual for Draconian.  :) 

 

I might send it out today if I have your address.  Otherwise it will go out next week.  Hope you're enjoying the game!
