Quiz Wiz Discoveries

There are two different Quiz Wiz consoles. I discovered this when I tested the one I got in the mail today. There is a difference between the two. The answers are announced differently in the sound. One has a sound effect for number presses, and the other one doesn't. Later Quiz Wiz cartridges are gray as opposed to black. I got cartridge #60 today, so I know there are at least 60 different cartridges. A lot for sure. I have a few duplicate General Knowledge cartridges, so I guess I had bet

Xybort (part 3)

Began work on the main game. I had quite the problem with the title screen code when I updated it to make it go to the in-game bank. But I think I fixed it. But it took an extra hour or so trying to figure out what was wrong, and I never did figure it out, but I did fix it. I made it so when fire is pressed, the ship shoots a missile. If fire is held, it won't fire another missile until the fire is released and pressed again. I plan on working on this little by little in case I run into a stupid

Conversation with Mark Eyles about Bubsy 3

Some days ago, I asked Mark Eyles through E-mail about Bubsy 3. At first, he thought I meant Bubsy 3D. So he said that he wasn't involved in this and gave me a link to Bubsy 3D page. Then I explained to him more about it and he then understood me.   He said, that he doesn't remember working with Bubsy. There could be two possibilities he said: - either they are just referring to a discussion he had with someone at some point about game ideas or - it was some other game
 

Xybort (part 2)

I finally got the score in the game. I went to sleep at about 11 a.m. and woke up at 9 p.m. And I'm still sleepy. It's still just a title screen, but it occupies about 900 bytes. So if I'm using stuff like this all the time, the game itself has got to look fairly simple. I think I'll make the enemy ship a character, sprite 0 is your ship and sprite 1 is your missile. And since it needs to look simple and I can't really get a scrolling effect with it, I'll need to make it look more like Astrosmas

Xybort

The Xybortians in their Xybortex ships are attacking Earth. I'm imagining a Xevious-type game (hence the name) for the Odyssey 2. And so I've designed a title screen for my vertical shooter I want to accomplish. This will be a 4k game. Due to the fact that I have yet to work on the game itself. Bank 3 is my intro and the title screen, while Bank 2 will be the main game itself. I have quite a lot of room in Bank 3. Here is a picture of the title screen of Xybort. This took all night to

Odyssey 2...021

Spent the first few hours of the new year trying to work on an Odyssey 2 game. I introduced a new variable and then wanted to set it before the game started. So I started out with bank 3, which is where the Odyssey 2 starts out all roms. I got the keyboard semi working, but the switch to the other bank to start the game was not working on a real Odyssey 2. Try after try happened until I found the reason: I was switching to the wrong bank. Instead of switching to bank 2, I was switching to bank 0

Info about Bubsy 3

Info about Bubsy 3

Today I found some more info about Bubsy 3. The most forgotten Bubsy game project ever. Which is why I did some research. Credtis: the information gave us by steven78 in 2016 at nintendoage.com and the blog was found by DoctorClu.    the evidence   Information Bubsy 3 was a game project, that was supposed to be completed on Spring of 1996 on Sega Genesis, Sony PSX and on Sega Saturn. It was produced by Accolade and Images Software (a division of Climax Enterprises

Flying fly

I'm still a little woozy from that doozy of an eye ache I had. Nevertheless, I decided to work on the fly swatting mini game in Frank the Fruit Fly. I forgot that when it comes up, you need to press A to start it. I was all "how come I didn't make it so the hand moves? I thought I did." Then I remembered that you need to press A to start it. So a few hours later, and the fly can move in 8 directions and stand still. I wish I could get rid of the standing still part, but the way I programmed it,

Ow! My eye hurt again.

My eye hurt again last night. Really bad. Figuring I would just barf them back up anyway, I decided to fix some popcorn and eat some Cheez-Its. Sure enough, a few hours later, there they were in the toilet bowl. I couldn't get to sleep very well since my eye hurt. But I find that when my eye hurts, sleep is the only thing that cures it. Sure enough, I went to sleep and woke up 6 hours later and the pain was almost gone. I decided to go back to sleep because I didn't get enough sleep, so I slept

Ghostbusters (2016)

Actually liked Ghostbusters 2016 for one reason: it hinted to me that there was something bigger going on. With all the original actors throughout the movie it hinted that maybe there was a mind wipe of the previous movies events except for maybe the original characters. The original characters were overseeing a strange resurgence of people remembering the Ghostbusters as things fell into place much as they did before. Either it was building up to an amazing reveal like that, or is was just a cr

I hate computers.

So my computer wasn't working very well. So I decided to reset the thing. It took 4 hours. Right now I am in the middle of downloading the programs I had before. Discord is a mean. I can't log on to it. I guess I lost my Discord capabilities because it locked me out even though I already have an account.   After the four hours (it was 2 a.m.), I discovered I had a new video editing tool that I've never seen before. So I decided to use it. It is pretty tough to get going with this myste

Hamburgers finished.

Dinner is served! After a little over two months after starting the project, I am happy to say that yesterday morning (Christmas), I took a little time and finished the game, and it's now in the bug testing phase. If you would like to help and have a Virtual Boy and FlashBoy or HF32 (or just have Mednafen), PM me and I'll give you the latest file. I won't be sharing it with everyone, so you'll have to promise you do the same. When I get some time, I'll try it out on my Virtual Boy and see if it

After a long hiatus, 1.21 Gigawatts of Gaming and Homebrew YouTube Exposure shall return.

Sorry I haven't wrote to this blog in a while. Been busy with life and other important things and I still am but the fam and I are still in the rebuild phase after fucking YouTube wiped out all our content that we spent over 10 years putting together. With 2020 being as fucked up as it is, I figured I will wait till 2021 to go back on the air here with a relaunching of 1.21 Gigawatts of Gaming which showcased playthroughs of retro videogames that include stuff older than our parents or when they

TI99 MyArcXBII & P-Card in MESS/MAME emulation package

I have put a together MAME/MESS emulation package that emulates the MyArc Extended BASIC II & TI P-Card for the Ti99. MyarcXBII: MyArc  was a company that made peripherals for the TI-99 line. There most famous peripheral (if you want to call it that) was the Geneve. The Geneve was a complete TMS 9995 computer that fit in the TI-99 PEB as a card. Another peripheral that was lesser known, but just as revolutionary, was the MyArc Extended BASIC II. The MyXBII consisted of the 128k or

Quiz Wiz errata

Found a couple of mistakes. Good thing they were typos and not answers. But it makes one wonder: Were the ones I didn't know correct? Hmm. At least they knew Ren was a dog and Stimpy was a cat. Here are the mistakes I've found (so far.) Question 232. "Different Strokes" has an apostrophe. It is actually "Diff'rent Strokes" 250. The show is called "Newhart", not "The Newhart Show." 258. Crusty the Clown of "The Simpsons" fame is spelled Krusty. All three of these were in the T
