Solo: A Star Wars Story (that nobody asked for) - Spoiler-free review

Posted by Nathan Strum in (Insert stupid Blog name here), 18 June 2018 · 33 views
Movies

When I first heard that they were making a Han Solo solo movie, my first thought was, "Why?"
 
I already knew what I wanted to know about the character. I didn't care about unanswered questions from his past. Sometimes, a character is more interesting because you don't know everything about them. Take Darth Vader, for instance. He was a much more i...

Bowling

This game is okay

Bowling I'm feeling lazy today, so I'm just going to review Atari's Bowling. This has got to be one of the most basic games on the 2600, both in game-play, sound, and graphics. But this isn't necessarily a bad thing. I find that the game gets it's message across rather well, that message being bowling. Sorry If this is a short review but there isn't much TO revie...

Aardvarks Aare Aatacking Aatari

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 18 June 2018 · 26 views

So I decided to make the Aaron the Aardvark game. It will be a shooting game where you shoot aliens. It will be a lot like Space Invaders. If I can, I will put in rotary support as well as regular controller support. If I can only do one, it will be regular controller support so I can play it if it ever gets released. This game is for the Atari Jaguar....

Haven't posted here in quite some time, because the stuff I've been working on has just been such a pain.
 
The most difficult part of this project so far has been the collision code, and I totally expected that to be the case.  I've made three attempts at coming up with a system for this, and they all reached a state where I thought they worked...

Diamond Divide Macro (40) Mod

Diamond Divide Macro (40) Mod  
While programing dMetronome I had to learn a few things. How to divide the number of DLIs in a minute by the number of DLIs to get beats per min.  I finally got to the point where I could use the Diamond Macro Divide to handle the division and as long as I kept the answer to one byte I was fine but there were many tribulations along the way....

BOARD GAME (Development 1)

Posted by StanJr in StanJr's Blog, 04 June 2018 · 85 views

Developing a board game is hard.  I can't even imagine starting from scratch now at my age.  I am extremely fortunate that I did all of the groundwork for this 25 years ago by pulling from AD&D, Hero Quest, NES RPGs and god knows what else.  Even so, developing a board game, even from a good start, is hard.  There's a whole lot of...

Good thing.  The joystick has evolved since Atari 2600.

[#043] No, seriously. I've been gone for a long time, and I will most likely keep up this trend and only "check in" a few times year.
 
My last blog post was February 2017, and my last topic post on the board was in December 2017 (in the Secret Santa thread, and I feel bad for never letting my Secret Santa know he/she did a great job with my presents...

My second drawing

Posted by Lefty1430 in Return of the Bobcat, 28 May 2018 · 78 views

After hours of drawing and erasing last night, I completed my second drawing. This time it's one of the level cutscenes from Bubsy 3D. Actually had a lot of fun doing this one. 
But by the time I was doing the audience of woolies, I got a little lazy. XD 
I need to learn how to properly scan and color digitally. It'd look so much better...

X-Y Plotter Table For The TI 99/4A Computer - Updated 6/17/18

Posted by Vorticon in Vorticon's Blog, 25 May 2018 · 146 views

So I've been mulling the idea of creating an X-Y table for my TI computer, which could be used to draw a bitmap image or perhaps do some laser engraving. I searched the web for inspiration and found this ingenious video by HomoFaciens where he uses the stepper platform that moves the laser head in optical drives to create a very effective but small X-Y pl...

Next music to compose after Africa by Toto?

Posted by newcoleco in newcoleco's Random Blog, 02 May 2018 · 277 views
music, 1982, poll, coleco and 1 more...

The way I've selected Africa by Toto was by searching the Greatest Hits of 1982. The number of views on Youtube for the song Africa released in September 1982 is very high, but the song isn't present in the Greatest Hits of 1982, but in the one in 1983, which surprised me.
 
Anyway, the list of Greatest Hits included the obvious "Survivor - Eye of th...

Pesco - Atari 2600

Posted by Marc Oberhäuser in Marc Oberhäuser's Blog, 10 April 2018 · 203 views

The Ebivision game boxes are known to be totally flimsy (with the exception Power Off, available in the AA store) and not available anymore. Dan suggested that it would be a good idea to update the box quality. I tried to get in touch with Ebivision to get the official blessing but couldn't get a contact address. Since the boxes aren't available anymore I...
