#3770741 Atari Flashback Portable FAQ and Compatibility List

Posted by nanochess on Today, 1:23 PM

Aardvark is a homebrew in development which just I've made compatible with AFP http://atariage.com/...-atari-vcs2600/

Also I've confirmed that Space Raid also works with AFP. http://nanochess.org/space_raid.html

And 1K Atomchess also fully functional http://atariage.com/...-atari-vcs2600/

#3770738 Aardvark for Atari VCS/2600

Posted by nanochess on Today, 1:21 PM

I've received a gift from Tarzilla, he sent me an Atari Flashback Portable with one condition: make Aardvark to work on it.

It took me two days but today finally I've managed to achieve it :) it results the AFP crashes if the display kernel has a bank switch! I've moved all display code to a single bank.

In a related note, Space Raid works just fine in the AFP.

#3766340 GOSUB for Intellivision - official thread - COMING OCTOBER 2016

Posted by nanochess on Sun May 21, 2017 11:54 AM

Hi everyone. There are still copies of GOSUB available for sale!  If you have not gotten yours, please consider purchasing this fun game for your Intellivision.
Two bits of news for all of you:
1.  GOSUB was reviewed by Will AKA  "Intypod Burgertime" and his wife Margo on the recent podcast of THE INTELLIVISIONARIES episode 31. 
     Check it out here: http://intellivisionaries.com/      If you want to get right to the review, go right to the 1 hour and 27 minute point. That's where it begins.
     I would like to ask Paul and the crew at the Intellivisionaries podcast if I could please extract this segment and use it as a marketing piece... maybe
     make a youtube video of it with some screen shots ( even though it is just audio )
2. I stated back in October 2016 that some of the proceeds of the sales of GOSUB would be donated to the cause of assisting Óscar Toledo Gutiérrez
    AKA "nanochess" and his family with their pending medical bills.
    Oscar is the creator and developer of IntyBASIC. On Saturday May 20, The first donation payment was sent to Óscar Toledo Gutiérrez. We are happy to be helping him in this special way.
    Without Óscar, GOSUB would have likely never been created. Once more copies of GOSUB sell, I plan to send a second donation to his family.
thank you for your support,
For more information, please visit : http://www.2600conne...res_gosubi.html

Thanks Tim! We've received the donation.

My wife and I appreciate it greatly.

Also big thanks and kudos to everyone that bought a copy of GoSUB.

#3759711 Purchasing an Apple II

Posted by nanochess on Wed May 10, 2017 5:34 PM

I think you should contact Keatah, he has tons of Apple ][ systems in his garage and house, I've heard three rooms of his house are filled with Apple equipment and his wife isn't delighted.  :ponder:

BRK would be essentially a CALL with fixed address in one byte, sometimes has been used to save space.

#3757461 What is Reset Vector?

Posted by nanochess on Sun May 7, 2017 11:07 AM

If we see the processor as a person, the first thing he does in the morning (RESET) is to check the address contained in FFFCH and proceed from there.


It's because of this it's called RESET vector.

#3749380 Ultimate Pong and IntyBASIC Showcase NOW AVAILABLE

Posted by nanochess on Tue Apr 25, 2017 3:27 PM

Finally I got to have my own copy of IntyBASIC showcase. :grin:


Although many developers here use IntyBASIC and it's a catchy name for a compiler, for a boxed game I would suggest something with more hype like Ultimate Game Collection vol. 1 or so, because the IntyBASIC name doesn't make justice to the three nice games included in this cartridge :)


Very polished and each game has its own overlays! :o



#3747651 My B.c quest for tires . Cancelled order? What ? No response ?

#3747241 Team Pixelboy News Bulletin - May 19th 2016

Posted by nanochess on Sat Apr 22, 2017 6:37 PM

I haven't seen a reply to this thread since July 2, 2016, I was wondering if there is an update about the health status of Oscar's wife and baby.


I hope it is appropriate to ask this, I am very interested to know how they are doing.


My wife is currently waiting for a new tomography in a few days to check her head and probably later a new check in her lungs.


My daughter baby has grown healthy and she is going to have her first birthday in May/06. :)


Thanks for asking!
