Christmas Carol: A Short Story - Part XXXIV

Posted by DZ-Jay in DZ-Jay's Random Blog, 17 December 2018 · 24 views

Well, I did it.  I would not have believed it, but I was there, and I saw it, so I know it to be true.  I did it.
 
I finished the story.  Phew!
 
It now stands at a full 15 chapters plus the short epilogue, for a total of 83 pages.  Here are some statistics, straight from the word processor:
Words : 29,615
Pages : 91

Sir Lancelot (Xonox)

Posted by DoctorSpuds in DoctorSpuds Reviews Things, 17 December 2018 · 37 views

Sir Lancelot (Xonox) Well now if this isn’t a sight to behold, we’re back in the land of Xonox. These guys produced some of the most advanced, and beautiful games on the 2600, and they packaged them in a very unique way.  When it comes to exotic cartridges Xonox has the competition beat with their Double Ender cartridges, each side has a different game and th...

My colecovision thing again

Posted by Serguei2 in Robin Gravel's Blog, 16 December 2018 · 38 views

I was planning to take a break today.
 
But I decided to work on my brawler game again.
 

 
The background looks better.
 
I also reworked on sprites and added more.
Now the fighters don't look naked anymore.
 
Now the sprites can move forth and back.
Another big step for me.
 
I still can't managed to control them with joy...

Yum for Game Boy

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 16 December 2018 · 33 views

I worked a whole lot on this last night. I went to sleep at midnight. Couldn't get to sleep until 1am. Then I slept for about 14 hours. It's kind of sad when you wake up and realize the day is almost over. Anyway, I have changed the name of the game from "Eating" to "Yum". I enjoy looking at my old Nintendo Power issues (circa 1993 or so). Finding games i...

S.O.P. Track 5 - Two-Part Invention In D Minor Back to basics.  I decided to do this track without using the MIDI setup.   Track 5 was recorded using a 130XE running The Music Studio developed by Audio Light, Inc. and distributed by Activision.
 

 
 
My first experience with Music Studio was on the ST.  I saw the A8 version at a rock bottom price and added it to my...

So here we are in the final!  It was an action-packed semi-final where we saw two great bouts.
 
The finalists are:
 
Enduro (Activision) vs Super Football (Atari)
 
Both finalists had to deal with some tough opposition, especially in the later rounds. Enduro had to deal with a preliminary round and there was quite the di...

Stay Frosty, Part 10

Posted by SpiceWare in SpiceWare's Blog, 14 December 2018 · 77 views

Last time around, while visiting family for Thanksgiving, I'd implemented a preliminary starfield. I'd originally tried doing so using missile 1, but it didn't work (in Stella) so I changed it to use missile 0. In and of itself that was fine, but missile 0 was used for the melt trail so needed to be repositioned after displaying the stars. As a quick work...

Why CS:GO Danger Zone is better than PUBG

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 14 December 2018 · 33 views

Valve decided to make CS:GO free to play and at the same time add a battle royale mode "Danger Zone".  This is great for me as I was looking for a way to scratch my PUBG itch on my 27" iMac rather than playing PUBG on phones.
 
But IMHO Danger Zone is better than PUBG because it is only 16 players on a correspondingly smaller map.  This lea...

Magical Fairy Force

Posted by AverageSoftware in AverageSoftware's Development Blog, 13 December 2018 · 41 views

It's been slow going on this project lately.  My real job's been busy and I've had the irresistible urge to play Ys VIII again.
 
Despite this, I have made some progress, although a lot of it has been weeding out bugs in existing code.  There are a few interesting new things in this screenshot:
 

 
This first new bit is that th...

Coin Doors DIY?, ThinCade: (part 2)

Posted by pboland in pboland's Blog, 12 December 2018 · 49 views

To buy or make a coin door?
 
It seems simple. The easiest choice at first seems to be “buy” the coin doors. After looking at a few, the best price I found was about $30-35.00 and that was for beat up coin doors. I would still need to restore them enough to make them look good.
 
Then I thought, it sure would be nice to have the coin...

Resident Evil (Fun Box) - Atari 2600

Image Capture on the TI 99/4A Computer

Posted by Vorticon in Vorticon's Blog, 21 November 2018 · 134 views

This is not a new project which was initially started in 2015, but it was never well documented and I was not very happy with the end result at that time. I picked it up again last month and made significant improvements with some guidance from Tursi, so here it is.
 
Image capture has not been attempted previously on the TI 99/4A computer even thoug...

Taming the White Arabian Horse the Easy Way
 
When you Google the best horse in RDR2, people say that the white Arabian horse is the best one and they'll tell you where it is and that you need to reach chapter 2 before riding to the spot. I was playing around in chapter 2 for a while before riding all the way there, but there was no horse in th...

Board Game Development 5 Sometimes You Gotta Commit

Posted by StanJr in StanJr's Blog, 15 November 2018 · 86 views

Ok, so after much hemming and even more hawing (it wasn't pretty), I think I'm going to build this game primarily as a solitaire game with multiplayer options.  It was conceived as a solitaire board game way back in the day and I think that is where it's the strongest.   That takes a lot of the pressure off making sure that the game is fun for 2...

Cruiz'in - "Bubsy : Twisted Dreams?" - November 2019 Today we have a late Halloween edition.   As I was recording play throughs of Woolies Strike Back I came across a glitch.  I hit the button for the screenshots or recordings after selecting a level.  The level would load and come up in the wait screen.  On certain levels (shown below) instead of a Woolie you get a winged/horned cr...

SF2 Champion Edition - NES

Posted by LS_Dracon in Draconland, 11 November 2018 · 158 views

When SF2 arrived in the arcades NES was still very popular.
I remember my friends talking about how cool would be a NES version.
 
Then the pirates comes with so many SF2 clones, but they have some flaws.
 
I decided to make a concept proof demo, much like what I did on Simpsons Demo, to test some of my ideas about a SF2 game made by me.
This de...

https://web.archive.....50megs.com:80/  I found a 2001 version of my old site (Well, some of it) on the internet Archive. This site was a part time project of mine, mostly about 2D games on the Saturn. It was created with hand-coded HTML and MS Paint between 1998 and 2001, and it was basically my introduction to...

Bloody "Life Hacks"

Posted by OLD CS1 in OLD CS1's Blog, 04 November 2018 · 121 views

I can be an asshole and sometimes a bit crotchety. It was a relief, therefore, to find that I am not the only one who finds the concept of "life hacks" cringe-worthy and often aggravating, if only for misusing the word "hack." You might come across some viral new "life hack" and think, "nothing special about that," since you or someone or some group of pe...
