#2190400 Opinion of the 7800 vs 8bit

Posted by Stephen on Sat Jan 22, 2011 5:21 PM

What's so funny about something that's true. Ms. Pacman, Joust, and Robotron are better on Atari 800. Go play it and tell me why you think otherwise. I have free will to post and disagree according to my experience. Only one turning things into crap here is you. Go get a life and leave me alone. I am through with you idiot. I have put you on ignore with Appolloboy as well. Don't serve as his sidekick as he is dumber than you.

Sweet - I have graduated from envious snake to idiot and am now on ignore. A better solution would be to leave the board so everyone else doesn't have to ignore you.

No offense, but I know full well what he was saying. I just disagree with it. Why do I get every single thing explained to me as if I didn't understand it when I disagree on something here?

Maybe because you are wrong.

Funny how it's always the same "two" people that come into a thread, and then the thread turns to shit.

Here's a picture of the Lance cart.



And... the REAL version.
LOL



Be careful posting that - they might steal your label and repro that to sell for $200 next time.


#2187698 Who are you buying EOTB from?

Posted by Stephen on Wed Jan 19, 2011 3:59 PM

Go get it from Video61. $150 for a bare PCB sounds like a great deal to me, even ignoring the asshole factor of the release.


<roflol> Stephen, I just gotta ask - were you able to say this with a straight face? :)

:) Quite so. I blame my European heritage and years of working in IT for my snarky sarcasm.

P.S.
I did not vote for the Vid61 release.

Eric. I vote that the Video61 / Chris deal be nonimated for "Douche-Bag of the year award"


#2183696 Opinion of the Atari Jaguar.

Posted by Stephen on Sat Jan 15, 2011 9:48 AM

the system rocks and has some great, unique games.

Some of the fanbase, however, tend to be a little too fanboyish and obsessed.

LOL - can I nominate this for understatement of the year :D


#2183695 S-Video

Posted by Stephen on Sat Jan 15, 2011 9:46 AM

OMG! - I am soo sorry that you are using an RF connection to use your Jaguar - the Jag RF box had much interference problems and are just terrible. My condolences go out to you. :P

Yes, you can hook up S-Video or composite video right to the back of the Jaguar - but yes the video/audio cable needs to be specially made for the Jag. No need to pay $40-$50+ for one though, here is a quality Jag A/V cable that includes BOTH composite and S-video hookups for a good price: http://morethangames...e/advert-g4.htm


I'd be careful dealing with this person. Sent him money on Nov 27 (noticed his last post here is Nov 28), as of today no product and does not reply to emails.

He's definitely a trust worthy guy. I've spent a few hundred on his products and always get them. He recently started a new job and has been really busy. I won't make excuses for long time to ship orders, but he is definitely not going to take your money and run.


#2180458 I do not wish to see anyone leave...

Agreed. I remember a few years back, 2600 legend Rob Fulop showed up. He offered to release a WIP of a game he did in the early 80s. He was sadly driven away by tons of people begging him to finish it, after it was clearly stated he had neither the time or desire to do so. As usual the attitudes flared, and I'm sure he never looked back.

I also would like to see as many coders here as possible, since there is absolutely nobody local to me who still shows any interest in these old machines. My brother & I both work in IT, but he makes fun of me on a regular basis for "wasting my time" on such an old "useless piece of crap". I guess I like the challenge.

I have fond memories of playground arguments, staunchly defending my A8 over the Apple IIs and C64s. That being said, 28 years have passed and I simply cannot fathom the idea of getting into a fight because my 30 year old antique can't display as many colors as your 29 year old antique. I also missed out on a pretty big piece of computing history because of being a fanboy.

Hopefully the list will soon be smaller.

Now that was uncalled for. My comment was perfectly on-topic and true and written BEFORE "other" thread was locked. No reason to do personal attacks and concoct fictional theories meant at character assassination like some others have done in this thread even if my post were inaccurate. My comments are not tearing into anyone. A8 game coding requires more coding skills than API-based coding. I can also surmise that you are an idiotic C64 fanboy and who wants to tear into and spew out your venom on Atari users like you have done previously.

The only one in this topic spewing venom is you. This post and the previous one have been reported to the moderators. Stop shitting on legitimate threads here.

lol Looks like the bad attitude from joystick thread is spilling over...

Yeah - crybaby got his ass handed to him, not it's time to "throw the toys out of the pram".

bmcnett....Just OOI, what non Atari platforms do you code for (since you mention being a games programmer)


so far, i've shipped games for these platforms:

game boy
game boy color
game boy advance
playstation 2
xbox
game cube
playstation 3
xbox 360


He was asking for some real programming that you have done. I think anyone can write for modern consoles using those bloated APIs. Have you written some DLI or IRQ code in assembly or write a 200+ screen game like Hero that fits into 16K cartridge? That may give you some hope that you can program for Ataris.

I have also shipped games for a lot more systems using Ebay; I haven't coded for them. Using your approach-- not familiar with your lingo.

Don't come over and start flaming people in every thread or you and your doppleganger will both be banned from here. Some of us have been here for nearly a decade and don't need your shit in every thread. Go sit in the corner and think about why your other thread got locked.

Now apply your advice form post #1706 to post #1707.
QED.

Please tell me where the emotion is in my post? I tell you atariksi - even when you are wearing your dress, you still don't have the slightest understanding of humor. That to me is extremely humorous.

Some might say that you are just a "blind follower" of your Krishna faith. Anybody who follows any faith is a blind follower.

That's your blind understanding. There are many proofs of things in the philosophy that are easily repeatable. The entire science of medicine in the Vedas is used even in modern world to cure things like cancer, heart disease, etc. So just speculating "it's blind following" is your speculation.

If anything it would be my lack of understanding - nothing blind about it. However, it is not. I understand many things quite well.

I still say you are a blind follower and any faith requires blindly following it. Once you start questioning it or using reason to speak against it, you are no longer blindly following, and are no longer faithful. Simple enough to understand?
