#3895852 Apollo Games Cartridges using eproms

Posted by doctorclu on Yesterday, 12:34 PM

Here is the inside of one Apollo cart I am buying online.   Yep, they used eproms in quite a few of them. 

 

Now a fun Thanksgiving meal conversation with Dad is how he found this out back in the 80's.

#3894912 Panther 32-bit page is back up

Simply put, the Jaguar development was going quicker than the Panther development so the Jaguar was launched instead.

 

Panther looks cool.

At this point purely graphical.




#3891556 New Genesis Flashback

Posted by doctorclu on Thu Nov 16, 2017 3:24 AM

 

It's not a rumor, but it was just emulation improvements for the built-in games. For instance, Galaga Galaxian didn't play correctly until this year and other games had some display tweaks. If those improvements improved non-built-in games, I can't say, since I haven't done the testing.

 

'Bout to say, they finally ported Galaga to the Atari 2600?!   I was about to hunt down one of these units for... oh... nevermind, just Galaxian.  :P

I made a video to show the ladder trick to use when the ladders line up.

Someone did a video of revision 2:

 

 

Made to realize that maybe not everyone has played Fast Eddie so I made the following video as a guide/demo:

I saw someone post a video on youtube and I realized that not everyone has played Fast Eddie in the past.  Ok. 

 

So I made a gameplay video:

Since the game hints at more of a kitten aspect, and since Atari releases would have been a bit before the Nintendo/Genesis releases, give more of a young wide eyed look...

Also, here is one good for an end label if you ever make a cartridge for yourself.  *

The disclaimer that you think we wouldn't need but here goes...

* Definitely not encouraging selling these.  All this has been a fun fan project to have my favorite character on the earlier Atari systems and maybe drum up some interest in the new Bubsy game.  All the above is for personal enjoyment and not for sell.   However if Accolade wants to make some retro cartridges using the above and sell them here on Atariage, I'd probably buy them just to have an official retro release.  :D

#3887800 Bubsy Vs Tronman

Posted by doctorclu on Fri Nov 10, 2017 4:55 PM

Hey using your opponents as a springboard to hit higher objects is use ALL the time.  That is as natural to Bubsy as gliding is to a bobcat.

I would love that!

 

In the meantime, the 5200 version was released a few moments ago...

lot of people think Bubsy started on Atari (really the SNES and then Genesis) so .... sure... why not!   Here we have it folks...

 

BUBSY : Kitt'N Kaboodle

Attached File  Screen Shot 2017-11-10 at 2.56.22 AM.png   16.54KB   7 downloads

 

This fun hack of Fast Eddie was made possible by Hack-O-Matic 3 and some coloring by KevinMos3 who has already made many good color hacks for Atari 2600 games.

 

The Woolies are at it again stealing Bubsy's stuff and this time they stole EVERYTHING and stored it on the planet Kaboodle!!!   Bubsy will need to JUMP OVER the Woolies to get it all back.  In the game you'll see objects Bubsy needs to collect on based on items he collected in...

 

Bubsy: Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind.  (Yarnball, exclamation marker point)

Bubsy 2   (Nerf gun, Trading card)

Bubsy Fractured Furry Tales  (Ball with exclamation point, extra life shirt)

Bubsy 3D   (Rocket part, atom)

Bubsy 3D: Bubsy Visits the James Turrell Respective   ("No Relief" gag from the fan made game)

 

And even the newest which came out recently that I'm enjoying...

Bubsy: Woolies Strike Back.  (glowing yarn ball)

 

This was originally started on the Atari VCS/2600 and since the code for Fast Eddie for the 2600 and 400/800 were very similar, the Atari 400/800/XL/XE version soon followed

 

Finding it fun to put Bubsy on one more Atari system, the 5200 version was also created.   Not crazy about how this XL Conversion to the 5200 has Bubsy always running but meh... it's done.   If someone can figure out how to get the main character to stop running that would be greatly appreciated.

 

Enjoy!
