Roof! Roof!

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 21 July 2017 · 51 views

Well, the roofers are working on my house right now. Poor dog got all exhausted barking at them. They are very loud people, and the kitchen lights came down a few times, but they are now working on getting the shingles on the roof. I went to Game Crazy and the guy there said "I have something in back I think you'd be interested in." He went back and got o...

3D printed solar filter for telescope/camera

Posted by Vorticon in Vorticon's Blog, 20 July 2017 · 79 views

So with the upcoming total solar eclipse on August 21st 2017, I decided to get my hands on a solar filter for my 8" Dobsonian telescope so I can grab some video and pictures of that rather infrequent event. Since I had bought my telescope from Orion, I checked for a compatible solar filter on their site and found out that it was priced at $145! There was...

My Dissertation on a female Doctor Who

Posted by doctorclu in Doctor Clu's Dissertations, 18 July 2017 · 285 views

Friend # 1
Ok..just gonna say right off the bat...I am not a fan of Dr. Who...that being said...why is everyone freaking out about a female Doctor? I don't get it! The gender of the doctor is completely irrelevant! It's about as dumb as when people freaked out about there not being enough white American actors in Rogue One...or the new Star Trek series......

MIDI, Arduino, SAM

S.A.M. RAAKS YUW I've added a third computer to the MIDI chain.  Computer #1 plays drums, and Computer #2 runs S.A.M. and Computer  #3 plays the lead,  .  Each computer had a specific BASIC program written to read data from the joystick ports. For this example, Queen's -" We Will Rock You" was arranged for the three computers. You can listen to the MP3...

RealSports Curling

Made little more progress, as evidenced by this screen shot:
 

 
I now have end transitions fully implemented, apart from actually checking for the end of the game.  On the scoreboard you can see a few new things.
 
First, there are a couple of team indicators on the left side.  The colors are subject to change, and may even end...

An Idea: Slower, Harder, More Challenging Pac-Man

game idea, pac-man, mod

An idea for a Pac-Man upgrade literally came to me in a dream a couple of nights ago.  I actually remember most of the dream, but I'll spare everyone the details, except to say it began at a game convention where I realized I hadn't yet set up the systems I'd brought, and ended with me on a running track trying to escape the men in black.  My d...

Playing Kangaroo On The 2600 This has quickly become my favorite game on Atari.  It is so entertaining and challenging. I am curious as to how many others like this game and if you like the port from arcade to console?

Cruiz'in ArcaneKids - July 2017 - Epilogue to the Bubsy 3D Museum Game. So not long ago I was looking at my collection of Bubsy games and said "Man I wish I could download the Bubsy game for my collection of the museum game .   I could preserve it, make a special box for it, ect."
 
Well my weird twisted dreams came true.  As of a few days go you can download  PC or Mac version AND it has a epilogue t...


Sega Forever suffers from poor emulation

For some reason I've never gotten into Sega's consoles.  Sure I've played Sonic, but that's about it.  However, when I heard about Sega Forever, I thought I might give it a try - watch a few ads, play a few games.  But now I probably won't bother....

True Story.  I was opening donor carts for copies of my 7800 homebrews when I got my thumb pricked by one of those springs inside an Atari cartridge.  Let's just say it didn't feel too good.   Just like when hot solder drips down onto your ankle....

My Quest for the Activision Patches!

Activision patch, Ice Hockey

My Quest for the Activision Patches! In addition to videos of my Gaming Odyssey, I am also recording my quest for the Activision patches (in virtual form, although I may try to track some of them down on eBay at some point).
 
I had never heard of these until I happened upon Spider Fighter - which I think might just be the best single screen shooter ever made! – and, through emul...

Bubsy the Extra-Terrestrial

Posted by LS_Dracon in Draconland, 20 June 2017 · 155 views

I enjoyed Bubsy for SNES back in the day.
It is a fun game with some good music (at least on first stage). Bubsy Snes OST : gameplay is not great, but had good mechanics like the glider. And this was fast,
a Sonic like game engine on Snes, without blast processing.
I had a friend who where crazy ab...

eggomania, tennis, starmaster and yars' revenge

Posted by DarQ Massacres in DarQ Massacres' Atari 2600 collection, 18 June 2017 · 152 views

so, some more new editions that bring my total game count to 59.
I got tennis and starmaster because I want to get all the activision games first
yars' revenge because it has been too long that I haven't owned it already
and eggomania because it looks different.
 
eggomania has a messed up label, but all the others are in good condition
 


Drop Zone 4 / Bombs Away (arcade remake) bB

Barrie Ellis of oneswitch.org.uk and I are working on a remake of these rare arcade titles written by David Main for Meadows (1975 / 1976).  Barrie has been a great source of information and suggestions for the remake.  He also worked up some awesome artwork with historical significance in the event that any cartridges are manufactured....
