#4052421 Contact Methods - Remove Deprecated Methods, Add New Ones

Posted by Albert on Tue Jun 19, 2018 10:58 AM

Thanks, I removed AIM, MSN, Game Gavel and ICQ.  I don't know anyone who uses ICQ here in the US still, although maybe some people do.  I'll have to look at Yahoo Messenger.  We'll have Discord partially integrated in the forum when I update the forum to a significantly newer version.  Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Instagram and other social media profile fields would be useful, the new software has much better integration with them. 



#4050929 Are the ROM's here legal?

Don't forget in Germany we have Autobahn areas with "Freie Fahrt für freie Bürger" which means NO tempolimit at all. Now make the conversion of that.  :D


Yeah, I saw plenty of these signs last year when we were there:

I wish someone would have trade-in credits for common Genesis cart shells!


The world can probably use fewer copies of John Madden Football, John Madden Football '92, John Madden Football '93, Madden NFL '94, Madden NFL '95, Madden NFL '96, Madden NFL '97, and Madden NFL '98.

#4048443 Atari ST Games Ported to the Jaguar

Posted by Albert on Wed Jun 13, 2018 7:18 PM

Haha, yeah there weren't even all that many hard drive runnable games until the last few years of 'life'. Seemed for some reason the ST developers, after the initial years that it was in the lead of the Amiga, just did mostly lazy ports and most were not big enough to warrant even making them work from a hard drive.

It would be difficult for me to even think of some games that were not solely playable from disk, until patched many years later.


When I was into the Atari ST "back in the day", not many people had hard drives.  I eventually got one, I think maybe a Supra Drive.  I now have a Mega ST and a Megafile drive, but I've never hooked them up.  :D  But hard drives weren't that common here in the US for people who had STs, except for the more hardcore enthusiasts who could outlay the cash for one.

Congratulations, that's great news!

#4047280 Physical boxes obsolete? The story of Assembloids2600

Posted by Albert on Tue Jun 12, 2018 10:40 AM

As Albert mentioned, it will be sold optionally without box rather soon, I guess ;-)

Meanwhile there is another playing experience on youtube:



Soon, I have taken all the photos I need to do this, just need to spend the time updating a bunch of entries in the store.  :) 



#4046151 What happened to LiqMat?

Yep, he asked for his account to be deleted because of the negative reaction to that thread.

I didn't think there were any kilometers (or metric anything) in Texas, land of the ten gallon hat and all that. 


No, but I did the conversion.  :P

This will be fixed with the updated forum software soon. 



#4043326 eBay discount -- not much time left -- 20% off

Thanks for this, I just took advantage of it and got the $100 maximum.  Please feel free to post such coupons in the future.  :) 



#4042698 bootleg donkey kong 5200 carts.

Posted by Albert on Tue Jun 5, 2018 6:55 PM

Since this game was never released, I would call them reproductions as opposed to bootlegs.  He has purchased games directly from the AtariAge Store to sell on eBay, including various 5200 games.  If you see any AtariAge homebrews in his eBay listings, they are legitimate copies of the games. 



#4042038 Which Homebrew carts do you own?

Posted by Albert on Mon Jun 4, 2018 10:24 PM

Two of my favorite party games are Fall Down and Assembloids.  


Fall Down is an excellent and highly competitive simultaneous two-player game, great fun!  We ran a tournament one year at a show using Fall Down.  And Assembloids is an easy to learn but challenging and frenetic puzzle game, pretty unique on the 2600, and very well done (and in only 4K!)  Two games I'm glad to recommend to others.  :) 



#4041891 Which Homebrew carts do you own?

Posted by Albert on Mon Jun 4, 2018 6:33 PM

+1 for Thrust+ :-D


Thrust+ is great, and it's held up very well over the years!  It's one of the first homebrews we sold.  Anyone who likes Lunar Lander or Gravitar-style games would probably enjoy it.  :)
