Quick update of my colecovision game.

I managed to make a title screen without messing up with the rest of the game. Press Fire 1 to play. result.rom You'll need a Colecovision emulator or a real console to play this rom.

Say bye bye to BBC kids

This is the last day we can watch BBC kids (Canada). Tomorrow, it will be gone. The most shows I'm watching are Robin Hood: Mischief in Sherwood and Atomic Betty. And other british shows for curiosity. I hope BBC Canada and BBC World News won't be removed. A bad ending for this year.

Flickering sprites on ColecoVision

I never noted until now in Donkey Kong on Colecovision, Mario is flickering, best noted in level 2. Mario seems to be drawn with three sprites. When two mods come out, Mario started flickering. I'm not sure what Mario looks like if he was drawn with only two sprites instead. The game would improve a little, less flickering but Mario might not look good. I never saw Mario flickering in 1980s. Maybe old tvs make Mario less or no flickering at all.

My brawler ColecoVision game

I worked on my unname brawler game today. What's new: Press Button 1 to attack Press either 1 or 2 to select a weapon: fist, crowbar or whip. You can't defeat an enemy in this demo. The player just has attack animation, nothing else. I can't figure how to use FIRE3. Either the emulator doesn't support 4 buttons or I made mistake with the codes. Keypad seems to work btw. Have fun with this demo. ok 11.rom

Winter started but

Winter season maybe started today but it's raining. Once the weather started freezzing, maybe tomorrow, the water turns into ice and the streets become slippery. I'd be careful for not to fall.

Another day, another work

I worked on my brawler game on ColecoVision again. Aaaaaaaaaah geez! I found a technique of flickering sprites. Here my game in progress: ok 08.rom You need a Colecovision emulator or the real console to play it with the flash cartridge. The player can move but not fight yet. I should limit to two ennemies on the screen like Double Dragon on Atari 2600. Adding a crowbar and a whip would make the game worst.

My colecovision thing again

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 joysticks. Feel free to try this new masterpiece result.rom The sprites are animating and the yellow one is moving. You can't still play it yet.

Colecovision stuff again

I played Popeye on Colecovision. The first thing I noted is the witch/woman throwing bottles always displays in the square. I think she drawn in tiles instead sprites because Colecovision's limits. Popeye is still fun playing it. Good thing to know.

A brawl/fight game on Colecovision

I played Lethal Weapon on gameboy and I wonder if there is a fight/brawl game for colecovision. After messing with codes, I managed to get something. Yeah!!!! It's my brawl/fight game. Colecovision has limited colour to choose from. Even if it has 15 colors, most of them are different of reds, greens and blues. In the screenshot, there are five sprites: the player, the towel and three bad guys. Because these five sprites are in the same line, the white guy does not show properly. Co

Etrian Odyssey IV arrived

I just received Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the titan for 3DS from mail. For $40, it's a bargain. Most of time, it's $80 or even higher. Of course, I could buy a digital version of the game for lower price, but I like physical cart than digital. That's why I bought the game from eBay. I started to think Ebay is better than Amazon. In Amazon, you need to buy stuff for $35 or more to get free shipping. In EBay, most of time, shipping is free no matter the value of the object you

Gameboy Popeye not available

I found an old letter from Funcoland saying Popeye on Gameboy is not available and it cannot be shipped. I played Popeye on NES and I'd like to play it on Gameboy. Time flies fast.

I love Stargate SG1 but

I'm pleased when Space was on free preview and I rewatched Stargate SG1 again. So I started to watch them again. It is a great show but .. Space broadcasted Stargate SG1 10 episodes in a week, I lost the interest of the show quickly, even if I can record and watch the episodes later. But 10 episodes a week is too much for me. I spend most of my time making cartoons and games and playing games, I don't feel to subscribe Space to watch the rest of the episodes. The problem with specia

New computer Windows 10

I bought a new computer recently with windows 10 installed. The first thing I noted is Cortana asks me to tell something each time I turn on the computer. Why did Microsoft put Cortana when the computer starts? It's annoying! It could be an application when I want to talk with it. The most tools I used from Vista still work on 10. I can still make movies and games.

Minecraft New Nintendo 3DS crashes

Minecraft can crash on PC and it also can crash on New Nintendo 3DS as well. Great job Mojang. Your game is full of bugs. When glitches are fixed, new ones appear.

My Vaio is dead

If I didn't release anything, that's because my laptop is dead, Even if I made back-ups for some stuff, any colecovision projects I'm working, are lost.

Zdoom + Gamepad

I took two days to find the right combination to play zdoom with the gamepad. Zdoom is a free engine to play classic fps games. It supports doom, hexen, strife, ... Good thing. The joystick has evolved since Atari 2600.

Minecraft in glorious 16 colours

I decided to build my own texture pack in Minecraft. I downloaded Paint.Net because it supports transparent color, Microsoft Paint does not support transparent. After trials and errors, I managed to build my texture pack in 16 EGA colours. I saw texture packs based on NES, so why not in EGA. The reason I used Beta 1.7 is most blocks are included in the same file png. In 1.12, each block has its own images. That would take forever to convert all images in 16 colors. The terrain.png
