#4260532 New Atari Console that Ataribox?

I'd be amazed if it was even turned into a bong.

They would gain alot more backers with a pack-in bong




#4259712 Displaying / leaving a 2600 powered on for a very long time

Posted by TwentySixHundred on Wed Apr 17, 2019 8:30 AM

There is no guarantee with such old hardware and id say the 2600 would crap out before the CRT. I had wrote a very simple "screensaver" for kicks that actually kinda stresses the hardware. It's not overly intensive however it's always calculating and turning playfield pixels on and off every 60 frames. Was basically a novelty project

#4257070 batari Basic Extension for Visual Studio Code

Yeah a one stop shop for 2600 and 7800 development will definitely bridge the gap for 7800 developing. A familiar environment when learning something new is always welcome.

Both are really good, it would be a shame to see the hardwork go to waste. You could always look at some slight changes to the gameplay and graphics to recycle the engine. Maybe some new features for a sequel or something

All it looks like is someone at AtariSA spent a weekend on making some new renders. The talk about working with AMD isn't impressing me either. We all know/knew that one guy in our close group of friends that would always like to share their brilliant dreams yet never deliver.

 

Im not saying they wont create a console, however im highly doubtful it will be much more impressive then a glorified flashback.




#4246657 You THEN vs. You NOW

Posted by TwentySixHundred on Thu Mar 28, 2019 3:21 AM

Im in the same boat it really depends on the game. There is many i was good at as a lad but can't even come close these days. Too much of these "i got things that need to be done" thoughts that run through the mind these days causing a lack in patience.

 

Plus i think we are spoiled for games these days so the practice isn't really there. However every now and then i come across something engaging that i can throw full concentration into. In those situations id say play better then i did as a lad.




#4245814 Multicolored Player or Multicolored Enemies? Which Is More Important?

Posted by TwentySixHundred on Tue Mar 26, 2019 9:36 PM

I would say multicoloured enemies as like you said before the player spends more time looking at the enemy

Thanks for the extension, really nice addition to bB. Obviously some tools like the playfield and sprite editor built into VbB are handy for graphics/sound ect. However a really refreshing and cozy experience on the coding side of things in VS. :thumbsup:

#4220726 [WIP] Bag Boy

Posted by TwentySixHundred on Fri Feb 15, 2019 8:56 PM

 rem playfield configuration
 DF6FRACINC = 128; Background colors.
 DF4FRACINC = 128; Playfield colors.

 DF0FRACINC = 128; Column 0.
 DF1FRACINC = 128; Column 1.
 DF2FRACINC = 128; Column 2.
 DF3FRACINC = 128; Column 3.

The remarks were throwing alot of warnings probably because the semicolon was directly after the value. It seams it was thinking Background ect was a key word.

 rem playfield configuration
 DF6FRACINC = 128
 DF4FRACINC = 128

 DF0FRACINC = 128
 DF1FRACINC = 128
 DF2FRACINC = 128
 DF3FRACINC = 128

I have had issues in the past placing remarks on the same line as code. Im not sure but could also have to do with the "." period at the end.

 

There is still a bunch of warnings to do with collision detection with player0 & player6. However seems to compile and run fine.

 

By memory the warnings show, but the detection for virtual sprites is still valid in bB.

 

Removed the rem's causing warning's and i haven't real hardware so only tested in Stella.

Who's worried about AtariSA shares when Taco shares have been sky rocketing since the announcement of the Ataribawks!
