Excellent!
Thanks man :)

 

If it will help, I have a USA address but live in Canada.

Could have it shipped to my address I could bring it across and ship it to you.

You're in Montreal aren't you?




#3000053 Starting from zero: how to learn to program for Inty?

Posted by ghsqb on Wed May 28, 2014 7:43 PM

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the great suggestions.

 

This statement from catsfolly is particularly relevant:

 

You can't learn to ride a bicycle by reading all about the physics of bicycles - you have to get on the bicycle, try to ride it, and fall down a lot.

 

So I will take the advice offered and begin with IntyBasic.

 

Thanks Groovybee for some great ideas on some milestones to benchmark my early progress.

 

Looking forward to getting into this, and hopefully one day bringing a game to market (got a killer idea for an original homebrew, let's hope I can make it a reality).




#2997886 Starting from zero: how to learn to program for Inty?

Posted by ghsqb on Sun May 25, 2014 6:05 PM

Hello everyone,
I've wanted to learn to program for the Inty for a long time, and I've actually kicked the tires a few times but got frustrated and went nowhere.

FWIW I've checked the Programming section of the forum, and I've tried to read the white papers, but even those assume some familiarity with programming as some of the terminology is way over my head with my present knowledge (or lack thereof).

With that said, is anyone able to suggest a jumping off point for a complete newb?

I don't mind reading and practising and learning, I'd just like to build up a bit of a foundation so that when I read the white paper and the SDK and STIC and other documentation, it is in a language I can understand.

I actually have two project ideas I would like to attempt but I don't even know if they are feasible owing to my lack of understanding of the technical aspects of the system.

Thanks in advance for any and all assistance.

Let the restoration begin!!!   :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:

 

 

Congrats Benny, I am so jealous.

Like you I have wanted one of these most of my life, and know first hand how hard they are to find.

Any I've come across in my travels have all been Daphne'd.

 

I'm just gonna live vicariously through you for a while if you don't mind.

 

Congrats again man, looking forward to reading the story of the restoration.

#2879258 Super Game Module now available for order

Posted by ghsqb on Wed Dec 4, 2013 8:34 AM

Eduardo, if you are reading this, I'd like my 2 SGMs that I paid for Day 1 from the first run.

I understand this is a hobby, and real life comes first, but if you could take 2 minutes to reach out and let me know what's going on, I'd appreciate it.
Thanks


#2874442 David Letterman on an Intellivison game box

Posted by ghsqb on Tue Nov 26, 2013 2:10 AM

Not to be outdone, the folks that designed the box for the Sears version realized they needed their own celebrity for their box cover.

Someone needs to photoshop the kids shirt on the Sears box to "Vote for Pedro", seriously.

#2831361 Selling a few INTV rarer titles in next day or two

Posted by ghsqb on Tue Sep 17, 2013 5:58 AM

I'm very sorry to hear of your loss.

It's also unfortunate to see someone have to take a step or two backwards in one of life's pleasant distractions in order to help pay the costs.

It's almost an unfair kick in the teeth on top of everything else.

I hope the sale goes well for you, and that you can reclaim theses items in the future without too much trouble.
