Got to it, sixteen years later! Here are the most important reference pages to get you all started. I'll scan and upload the entire manual soon.

#3317732 Adventure 2600 to 8bit ?

Posted by El Destructo on Tue Sep 8, 2015 11:44 PM

Hi! I'm the author of the incomplete BASIC version. I began writing it as a tribute when I was just starting college. No source code or disassembly was available to me at the time, of course; I just created it from observation of the original game, much as authors of arcade ports did in those days. I also made a room layout and linking editor to aid in creating the original levels which I planned to release along with the game so that others could make their own Adventures from the original building blocks.

 

I always intended to eventually convert some or all of it to assembly language, but college studies and other projects soon took priority. Looks like Phaeron has made short work of it now. Well done!




#3238576 Favorite Atari 2600 commercial ever?

Posted by El Destructo on Fri May 15, 2015 4:53 PM

Two more for your consideration from the Spring of 1982:

"Yars' Revenge:"

 

"Only Atari Makes the World's Most Popular Home Video Games:"

 

I scanned them from VHS tape myself and posted them to YouTube.




#3205644 Connecting multiple computers to one chain of SIO devices

Posted by El Destructo on Wed Mar 25, 2015 11:19 AM

The Quintopus comes to mind...it was an SIO expander box that connected to one or two computers and provided an array of SIO ports for connecting multiple devices simultaneously, including "dead-end" devices such as modems and cassette recorders. Switches enabled one or the other computer to access the chain. Both could be enabled, but this only worked as long as the computers didn't try to access the same device at the same time.

 

Antic review here: http://www.atarimaga...powertools.html

 

Quite a rare beast today, I imagine.




#2814503 Best setup for recording emulated Atari?

Posted by El Destructo on Tue Aug 20, 2013 1:46 PM

Reducing Atari800MacX's screen resolution to 1x didn't stop QuickTime's screen recorder from stuttering. Recording with iShowU HD did the trick, though.

Here's the result: Discape Atari 8-bit Demo by Anthony Ramos

Thanks for the advice, everyone!
