Old Toonmarty intro

Posted by Serguei2 in Robin Gravel's Blog, 20 September 2017 · 15 views

I wonder if this intro is the first try, a kind of a preview of a new show.
 

 
The intro is better than the show itself.

47 sightings: September 20, 2017

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 20 September 2017 · 42 views

I was watching TV when I noticed the pace of home runs in MLB has increased 47%. Also, I watched a tiny bit of the second episode of the 47th season of Sesame Street. I think Elmo killed the show a long time ago. And at a trip to the grocery store, I saw a bag of popcorn that proudly proclaimed it had 47 calories per cup. The number 47 has eluded me for a...

Project 65XE: GOODIES

Posted by Osgeld in Osgeld's Blog, 18 September 2017 · 129 views

Today I got a fat box of crap from mouser, 512k Sram, stuff for SIO2SD and connectors wooter 
 

 
I still haven't laid out PCB's yet cause I had to make some last min alterations to what packages of components I got, and I wanted to lay hands on them before committing (that and being a combination of stupid busy and lazy) I did get a hand...

Defender, arcade cabinet

Someday it will be mine! I just wanted to write a quick blog entry here to show my intention of acquiring a Defender Arcade cabinet someday.  This game means to me more than I can properly convey.  My younger brother Joey, and I (he much more than I) played for countless hours on the Defender cabinet that they had on the pediatrics floor of St. John's Hospital in Detroi...

DH100-->A8 MIDI Interface

dh100, midi

DH100-->A8 MIDI Interface I have 9 optocouplers setup to receive data from the Arduino for the SAM Rock You project.  Eight for the MIDI data byte from the Arduino and 1 to signal the Trigger when new data is ready to be read by the Atari8.  A tenth optocoupler needs to  be added so that the A8 can let the Arduino know that it is ready for the next byte.

New Thoughts on Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan --New Thoughts on Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan---
 
Seeing Star Trek 2 on the big screen was the first time I've been able to do that since I was in the 5th grade. Naturally it was a big deal and for so many reasons 1) the phaser fire effect in the ship battles 2) James Horner's theme music 3) the story 4) The awesome uniforms. In truth, there was...

DIY microconsole part 2

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 07 September 2017 · 130 views

I now have MAME (2003 - 0.78) up and running, woot!  I've loaded up "the best of" from pre-1986, now I need to figure out how to set the controls beyond the defaults.  This also means I can play the originals rather than the console ports.
 
I'm also working on getting Colecovision running.  I've created a script which creates a playli...

Atari Comics

Posted by troff in Troff the Shelf, 05 September 2017 · 126 views

I wanted to collect together all the Atari-related comic books that I'm aware of.  Back when Warner owned Atari, they also owned DC comics, making them a natural pair.
 
First, there are the mini-comics that were bundled into Atari 2600 games.  The Atari Force DC mini comics came bundled with Defender, Berzerk, Star Raiders, Phoenix, a...

A new start.

After who-knows-how-long of never touching this blog, I've decided to start it over from scratch.
 
I haven't got anything to report really, but I'll be updating from time to time.

Oscilloscope Graphics with the TI 99/4A Computer

Posted by Vorticon in Vorticon's Blog, 31 August 2017 · 221 views

I recently came across videos on YouTube showing how to use an arduino to create graphics on an oscilloscope. The basic idea was to use a digital to analog converter (DAC) to convert digital signals from the arduino into analog voltages which could be then fed into an oscilloscope set up in XY mode to create what essentially amounts to cartesian drawings....

Ghostbusters (2016) [It does not inhabit the same universe as the originals.]

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 26 August 2017 · 187 views

SPOILERS
 
I get STARZ for free and I noticed that the 2016 Ghostbusters was going to be on, so I recorded it. I was out of things to keep me company while doing tedious work on my web site, so I started watching/listening to it.
 
Since the movie came out, various people have been arguing that the film is a continuation, not a remake or a re...

RealSports Curling

Posted by AverageSoftware in AverageSoftware's Development Blog, 19 August 2017 · 169 views

Just realized that I've been working on this project for over a year now.  Kind of scary, but then again, Ratcatcher took at least three years.  Of course, Ratcatcher was my first 5200 game so there was a lot to learn.
 
I've completed the the new physics system, as least as far as basic rock movement is concerned,  The new system is m...


Aging Gamers: It's Time for Developers to Rethink How They Structure the Gaming Experience

aging gamers, video game design and 1 more...

As I approach my mid-30s, an issue in gaming has been weighing on me more and more over the past few years. I find myself increasingly frustrated with how modern games attempt to structure my game time in ways that are often incompatible with my responsibilities and commitments. While I was never a gamer of immense skill, as a kid I could play through dif...

My Top 10 Atari 2600 Games

My Top 10 Atari 2600 Games As the 40th anniversary of the Atari 2600 VCS approaches, I decided to compile my personal favorite games on the legendary system.  I've owned Nintendo NES, SNES, and Wii, Sony Playstations 1 and 2, the original X-Box, and Sega Genesis, as well as other Atari systems (5200 and 7800), I always find myself coming back to the 2600.  I was a kid dur...
