Wow, the level designs are really coming around nicely and that fire breathing dragon was a surprise and super awesome. I'm glad you aren't making it exactly like Tank Mission, but do hope you go all out like you did in that. One thing I really enjoy about TM is the elaborate use of the numeric pad and all the fine details you added. The way you can swim, tank treads leave marks on the ground, etc. I have total faith in your work and am really excited about this new project. Keep up the good work!

Awesome! Glad to see you revisiting this. I hope you stick with some of those earlier ideas with the overland horse riding segments and things. You've done great stuff in the past, so I'm sure you'll come up with some really neat stuff for this. I really like that artwork with the Dragon btw. A Conan style Tank Mission is just too cool! :thumbsup:

I don't know much about SMS homebrews, but you might want to check out the Bruce Lee port.


#3956363 Atari's Plato Cartridge question

Posted by Centurion on Thu Feb 8, 2018 1:08 AM

This is all so awesome guys! Just within the last year or two I was reading about the Plato cart and Cyber1 to see if anyone knew of a way to get an Atari connected. It didn't sound like it was possible, so I kind if gave up. I thought it'd be super cool to play some Moria, dnd and pedit5 on an Atari! Fantastic work everyone. I am definitely going to delve into this before too long. My thanks to all you dedicated Atarians! :thumbsup:

#3925973 Timex Sinclair/ZX Spectrum compatibility questions

Posted by Centurion on Tue Jan 2, 2018 11:26 PM

It is basically a bare board ZX? i would need to source and install all the components?

The Harlequin is a bare PCB, but it does fit inside an original ZX Spectrum shell/keyboard and is the same dimensions as the original 48K, so once it is assembled, you can have an NTSC Speccy inside a ZX Spectrum. Some people prefer keeping the board bare, but I got an old 48K keyboard for mine along with a new membrane.

I was in the same boat as you Vic, being in the US and wanting a Spectrum. I'm very happy with how it works, but it did take some time assembling and I'm not sure if you're into that. Also, you might want to go with the S-Video mod as it clears up the video in a major way.

I have covered my assembly along with a post on modding for S-Video in the blog link above.

Wow, can't believe I missed this. Dungeon is an awesome game on the 2600!

This will make a fine AA store addition when it's finished. :)

@First Spear, the ad looks great! Screenshots look really nice. Stoked about the storyline/music. Charityware too! :thumbsup:

I love it! If the theme is a sample of what the other tracks will sound like, I could see this being very cool. Looks like a lot of songs.

#3704854 Recapping working Astrocade - worthwhile?

Posted by Centurion on Sat Feb 25, 2017 12:31 AM

Well, there's an old saying "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". :lol:

I don't have a lot of experience with Astrocades, so I can't really give too much advice on whether this is a wise move or not. But I did replace a couple of caps on my machine and will say that anytime you open an old machine like this, you run a risk of damaging it. Desoldering on old PCB's isn't easy and some of the caps inside the Astrocades are in tricky spots too.

Here's a blog post I made when fixing a video issue I was having:


Might help you decide. I'd personally leave it alone if it's working ok.

I haven't seen much discussion on this yet, but it sounds promising. I'm curious to hear more about it. Thought I'd mention it, in case anyone is interested.


Here's a little writeup about it I found:


#3681126 Aladdin's Castle: what was it like?

Posted by Centurion on Fri Jan 27, 2017 3:47 AM

I have fond memories of Aladdin's Castle and LeMans. I loved how they were so dimly lit and how magic it looked with the glow of the machines. Tons of great games.

A friend had a birthday party one time and we all got a cup full of tokens. I felt like it was MY birthday! I had such a great time. Even got tickets and traded them in for cheap little HE-MAN figures and stuff. It must have been the late 80's, because during the mid 90's they started getting rid of the older machines and that's when arcades around here started going south, iirc.

I really miss good arcades... But, I did get to visit the Pinball Hall of Fame in Las Vegas recently and had a wonderful time! Love that place.

Thanks for the memories
