In Topic: will there be more Atarivox + ?

Wed Jan 30, 2019 7:35 PM


The issue doesn't affect games that are using the AtariVox+ for just storing and retrieving information, which is what most games use it for.  It only affects a few games that use speech, and only one on the 2600 that I'm aware of.  I don't want to build more AtariVox+ units at the moment, though, until the cause of the issue is discerned and a fix is developed. I'm hoping that can happen early in the new year. 



Hey Albert,


Hope you had a great Christmas & New Years! Was wondering if it would be possible to buy one of those "bugged" AtariVox+ for testing my game. I don't care if it doesn't work 100%, as long as I can test my game with an AtariVox+ :P. Also do you have any plans to sell stuff on Amazon?

I'd suggest placing the whole display kernel in the second bank (for simplicity), and leave the first bank just for startup and overscan/support routines.  It's probably the easiest approach until you become accustomed to how banking works.

Unless i'm misunderstanding you, it tried what you said and now the Atari 2600 is bleeping at me. :P

So what's the benefits of having 2 banks if most of your code and/or data has to reside in a single bank anyways?

I managed to get it running, sort of. It seems to work, but none of the player or playfield graphics are working. All i get is a box instead of a face for the player and the playfield simply does not load at all. I have added a link to the source code for reference.



In Topic: What have you actually PLAYED tracker for 2018 (Season 11)

Mon Dec 10, 2018 7:22 PM

Ookma-Kyi - PC - 120m
Heroes & Shadows - 2600 - 400m
Clan Lord - PC - 0m
Kaboom - 2600 - 120m
Survival Island - 2600 - 15m
Mind Maze - 2600 - 55m

Laptop died so no Clan Lord for me. Hopefully I can get enough money for a new one this Christmas, but hey at least my Atari works! ;)

In other news I moved my Ookma-Kyi to Cloud 9 so I can work on and play test it in my local library. SSSSHHHhh >:)

Also I managed to get a working instance running on my previous cloud provider. As my laptop is dead I have to spend half of the posted time wrestling with it to do what I need it to do to get stuff accomplished. That is why there is such a big number next to it. Let's see how long this will last... :'(
