#4010004 Is it possible to set the default to full site when on mobile ?

Posted by Albert on Yesterday, 5:46 AM

I don't know if there's an easy way to fix this on mobile so that the desktop forum skin comes up by default.  However, the new forum software we'll be running soon does away with the mobile skin and instead uses a "responsive" skin.  This means you'll be using the same skin on desktop, tablet and mobile devices, and the skin will adapt itself based on the device you're browsing with.  You'll have the same functionality and interface, it'll just be laid out a bit different on narrower screens.  And this will be true for all skins, which is nice as well.

That doesn't quite bode well with my OCD though.

 

I can send you some stickers.

The lack of an AtariAge logo on the box spine doesn't mean anything at all.  We're not 100% consistent in that regard.

Was my warning not good enough for you?  Now I will go chat with Albert to see what the next step will be. This drama will stop RIGHT NOW!!!!

 

Next step is banning him from the thread.

Anyone get an email from Albert to confirm address yet? Sorry to be paranoid guy, just want to make sure my work email server isn't filtering it!

 

Yes, I sent an email last week to everyone.  If you did not receive an email, please make sure your spam filter did not catch it (for instance, in Gmail you can look in the spam folder).  You can PM me directly here if you need to update your address.

#3999110 Gridrunner Unlocked for Jeff Minter Classics on Atari Jaguar

Posted by Albert on Mon Apr 2, 2018 11:55 AM

Is mine more rare if I don't unlock the extra game? ;)

 

The EEPROM in the cartridge can be erased, which would remove Gridrunner from the menu (as well as erase your high scores).

#3998478 Ready Player One movie

Posted by Albert on Sun Apr 1, 2018 4:40 PM

Enjoyed the movie, but I somehow missed the Intellivision!  But there's so damn much on the screen at many points in the film, that it'll take pausing it on Blu-Ray to see many of the details.  Besides the 2600, there was a ColecoVIsion featured in one scene..

#3998134 Gridrunner Unlocked for Jeff Minter Classics on Atari Jaguar

Posted by Albert on Sun Apr 1, 2018 9:01 AM

Last fall we released Jeff Minter Classics for the Atari Jaguar, containing two of Jeff Minter's most popular classic computing titles: Llamatron: 2112 and Revenge of the Mutant Camels. The excellent Atari ST versions of these games were brought to the Jaguar by Lawrence Staveley (author of Rebooteroids), joined together by a beautiful menu illustrated by William Thorup. Stunning artwork was also created by William Thorup for the box, manual, label and included double-sided poster. 
 
In celebration of Jeff Minter's announcement of a Playstation 4 port of Gridrunner, we're excited to reveal that Gridrunner has been hidden inside all copies of Jeff Minter Classics sold to date! We've put together a video that shows how you can unlock Gridrunner. Once you've done so, Gridrunner will be displayed on the menu when the cartridge boots up, so you only need to unlock it once: 
 
 
As an added bonus for Gridrunner, you can choose to use an Amiga or Atari ST mouse (with a proper adapter) to control your ship, in addition to the stock Jaguar controller. Playing Gridrunner with a mouse is a blast! 
 
If you don't already have a copy of Jeff Minter Classics, you can pick up a copy in the AtariAge Store. Happy Easter to all Atari Jaguar fans!

It has happened again. All my apostrophes have disappeared. Only on atariage does this happen. Why does this happen?

 

What web browser / OS are you using?

Crap forum software.

 

That's helpful.

#3992669 Kickstarter -- New System Shock game

Posted by Albert on Sat Mar 24, 2018 6:49 AM

So they are now targeting Q1 2020.  Two more years, just to do a modern remake of System Shock using a sophisticated third-party engine (Unreal) that saves them having to do that complex bit.  Seems a bit stretched out to me, but at least it's not completely dead yet. I'm still skeptical at this point that I'll ever have the opportunity to play a finished game.
