  1. The block of AtariAge.com on Facebook has been removed! A huge thanks to everyone who took the time to send in a report to Facebook, that's much appreciated! Now if they'd only punish accounts that abuse the reporting process in this fashion.. ..Al
  2. Happy Birthday Tommy.. hopefully this will be your best year ever!
  3. ok, posting some progress. ice level is in place together with status bar and wonderboy this is not the full level but only half of it. you can ran around and see level scroll . when power life is out - you die when life is gone - i've added a break instruction so game will crush on purpose there is a timing issue where wonderboy jumps high and screen is scrolling and he is trying to throw his axe - will be fixed wonderboy.xex output file is still not on cartridge - i am working slowly but gradually on this. enjoy
  4. Today I get told that KH has RVG content on his Patreon site in the form of an RVG Mini mag we made years ago, this is ours, my logos, designed by Greyfox and with RVG content, maybe some of his reviews but that does not give you the right to give that away on your site and claim ownership, then I get told your linkedin profile has www.retrovideogamer.co.uk as your personal site, its is not yours now, was not yours back then and never will be mate. Grow up, delete all connections to me and my assets please, when I set up www.homebrewheroes.co.uk you messaged me with an email telling me how disappointed you was that I did that, so what did I do, I deleted the site and started Homebrewlegends, at your request, you asked me to removed your reviews from RVG, what did I do? I removed them, i conformed to your requests, yet you still use my assets as they are yours. PLEASE remove any association to me PLEASE. I have requested these things be striked by Patreon and Linkedin also.
  5. I just got the ok to do DK Remix.
  6. Probably about time for a MENU / BOOT / 9640 MENU development topic. "9640 MENU" 80 column [17 Feb 2020] 9640menu 17Feb2020.zip - Added TIPI clock support. Menu checks time about every second. I suppose I could remove the seconds and check ever 30 seconds or so. I don't know of a way to access the TIPI DSR without blinking the light - All other clocks are currently untested and might not function. I can barely understand the spaghetti code I wrote in 2015 (for reasons historically documented). Intent is to rework Classic99 and Triple Tech to use the DSR. MBP/Clulow/Geneve clocks will remain direct-access. . - Catalog routine overhauled. Sector IO out; level 3 catalog in place. Allows entry of a path e.g., TIPI.FOLDER1. or SCS1.FOLDER2. - Drill down into subdirectories and select the file you want to run or view - FCTN-8 to enter a new path; use the "..\" to go up a level. When you are at the root, pressing enter on the "..\" will recatalog the device. - If you exit the catalog and return the last path is remembered - The options creation (F4) and the Edit/Save (F5) options are still tied to disk numbers. Will look to change that down the road. - The options files are currently compatible with the prior release. This could change if I enhance the program with paths and other information, or redo the antiquated menu structure. - If you have a Remind-Me file in the TIPI root in the format MM-YYYY, pressing "Y" at the menu will display the day's reminders and any scratchpad notes. This feature is a novelty at present and subject to update or removal. The various clock support complexities may dictate my next steps. - Are there bugs? Probably. I am using this as my daily menu program via the Horizon 4000B at present. MENU 40 column 7.39 [16 Feb 2020] - Minor tweak for ROS 8.42c. See ROS development thread. Link to earlier topic related to 9640MENU
  7. Ah, the 50s... grand times! The time of colonoscopies. Enjoy! I hear 52 is like the new 50... so all is OK. haha Have a great Birthday! TJ
  8. Assburgers, with the emphasis on “being an ass” here. Other people have autism, adhd and Aspergers, but aren’t complete dicks in the process, so it’s no excuse,
  9. I swear I know how to spell “two”.
  10. I should also add that Synthpopalooza has offered to update the sounds. I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do with it.
  11. Other than Baseball, Cloudy Mountain is my most anticipated re-imagined release. The Running Man is going 1st to 3rd on a ball hit hard off the right field wall.
  12. As it should be. As is my Sub-Reddit. I mean they could have stayed in there if they hadn't banned someone for posting factual content they didn't like. But you know they went and created their own Sub-Reddit. I hear it's very active and popular.
  13. A month ago, I plugged the wrong polarity power plug into my power box of the 5200 console, and cooked one component...I cooked it good, it was smelling burn 😕 Being in Europe, I thought it would be expensive and difficult to find another power box. Once a month, there is what we called in Europe, Repair Café, a place where you can bring your electric items (vacuum cleaner, blender, radio,....) and a band of goodwill electronic geek will try to fix for the cost price, so you dont have to buy a new one.... I didnt have a lot of hope, as I am they dont know anything about old console, even less about 5200, but I tried, the guy looked and kept the power box saying he would try to fix it, well a week ago, I received it back. It works! He changed the burned component and it costed me ...90 cents....
  14. Happy birthday Tommy! Thanks for all the hard work you've put into gaming throughout all your years. Enjoy today and relax, you've earned it!
  15. Happy Birthday, Tommy, and my this year be your best year to date!
  16. Is it possible, to create a game, that is "too full"?
  17. Dan, The remedy to this problem is to cut the controllers free from the cables and toss them into the trash. The cables may be used for future controller projects.
  18. Happy Birthday to you Tommy ! 2 questions about E3. 1) Will your conference be live on the Internet ? 2) How many consoles will there be to try Amico games ? Thank you.

    Our local radio station is just playing its fourth Styx song in a row, which is unusual. Not complaining, but it makes me wonder if there is a reason..
  20. Considering that they still haven't even officially started the production phase of the project, I'd guess June at the earliest. Although, if they know they'll deliver in the next quarter then it's kind of baffling as to why they don't just go ahead and switch the Indiegogo project to "production" status now to make people feel better. They claim to be working on production-related tasks, so it's odd that they're still listing it in prototype status. They've posted update after update without ever changing the project status even though they keep claiming to be about ready to finish production and deliver.
  21. This is planned. Specifically, porting the IDE+ serial routines.
  22. What I'll miss most about the Coleco Chameleon is its bug-free game technology.
  23. Sorry for the late post guys and gals, I got a bit sidetracked by some projects I was working on this afternoon, but better late than never as they say! Ineligible Arcade Classics (Sega Genesis) - 51 minutes Ms. Pac-Man (Sega Genesis) - 503 minutes Pipe Dream (Game Boy) - 55 minutes Tomb Raider III (PlayStation) - 74 minutes Williams Arcade's Greatest Hits (Sega Genesis) - 218 minutes Nintendo Switch DOOM (2016) - 85 minutes Total Video Game Play Time This Week 986 minutes (16 hours 26 minutes) [85 minutes eligible] Individual System Play Times This Week Sega Genesis: 772 minutes Nintendo Switch: 85 minutes PlayStation: 74 minutes Game Boy: 55 minutes Most of the this week was spent playing all the different game variations in Ms. Pac-Man on the Sega Genesis, and I really love that the Genesis version of Ms. Pac-Man has an actual ending if you're able to complete all 32 mazes in the Mini Mazes, Big Mazes, or Strange Mazes variations on a limit of 4 continues. I was able beat the Mini and Strange maze variations, but I ended up failing the Big maze variation on the very last level with just 4 dots left to eat. Yowzers was that ever frustrating! I'm sure I'll go back and play it again though, and I especially love that every game variation can be played on pac-booster (fast mode) like the mod chipped Ms. Pac-Man arcade machines you sometimes find. The two player simultaneous modes with one player playing as Pac-Man while the other plays as Ms. Pac-Man is another standout feature that makes the Genesis version of Ms. Pac-Man definitely my favorite Pac-Man game on any system, just barely edging out Pac-Man Collection the 7800. Other than the Ms. Pac-Man time logged it was just a little bit of this and a little bit of that around here this past week. I got a copies of Williams Arcade's Greatest Hits and Arcade Classics for the Genesis in the mail midweek, and while Arcade Classics was pretty awful (I don't know how Sega could have screwed up Centipede, Missile Command, and Pong so badly but they sure did and all 3 games played slower than molasses in January) the Williams compilation was pretty darn awesome! I had a ton of fun hooking up both of my Genesis arcade sticks and playing a proper twin stick game of Robotron 2084, and the ports of Defender, Defender II, Joust, and Sinistar all seemed pretty good too. Defender especially. Anyway, that's all for this week! And now if you'll excuse me, I have a severe case of existential dread to go attend to as I turn 35 years old in half an hour.

  25. Here's a tease. Note ... for technical reasons, all music's will go up by one semitone. dkong-title.bin dkong-title.asm dkong-title.A78
  26. ATARI 2600: Gorf (for HSC Silver Medal Tournament) - 10 minutes Space Invaders - 28 minutes ATARI 7800: Pac-Man Collection - 60 minutes EVIDENCE OF THE WEEK: My Pac-Man Collection gameplay footage, with Puck-Man turbo mode and KEY level
  27. Hello all. New to the HSC but love playing my Intellivision. Figured I’d give it a shot. There are some very impressive scores on here!
  28. After an unused gift card from Christmas and some trade-ins, I was able to finally add one of these to the ITC collection for less than $10 out of my own pocket... This game along with a few others that recently came into my town locally, has really allowed me to get some heavy'ish' hitters added to the collection.
  29. And *that's* as much fun as you'll probably have with this game. 🤣
  30. Best case scenario is we'll all so busy enjoying the new system/games that we won't wanna take time away from it to waste on petty stuff like that.
  31. Reported to Facebook also, this whole thing is a joke now, as the said owner of RVG I am ashamed of your actions fella, we went our seperate ways for many reasons, both Greyfox and Lost Dragon have cover much of that in their posts, I don't wish anyone any harm and seeing this happen does not fill me with joy but ffs fella, leave it alone and move on. Stop digging a HOLE
  32. PC Blood Bowl 2 (1271 min) Oculus Quest Beat Saber (398 min) Not much to say on BS. I managed to beat a Babymetal song (Distortion) on Hard, which is kinda like beating a low-end Expert+ regular song...so there's that. Last summer I picked up the BB2 DLC on sale and I've finally got around to playing. I played a couple single player 7-game leagues with an Amazon team. And the AI, while not horrible, also isn't all that great. I've been playing Blood Bowl off and on since the early 90's, so I was able to go 14-0 with 31 TDs for and 5 TDs against. So while it was fun. the lack of challenge means I'll be moving on (I don't really want to commit to any multiplayer leagues).
  33. He did just register yesterday morning for E3, so they might not have updated the list as of yet? Also, Happy Birthday Tommy!
  34. All retro stuff, mainly Atari (he is obsessed), then he widened to other systems he knew even less about. Long time abuser of forums and actively goes out of his way to torment and put nasty comments on anyone's YTs / Does a fine line in dubious reviews of books he didn't 'write'. I say write the guy couldn't be called a journalist he even bullied the editor of a uk mag, Retro Gamer into using his stuff. Most of his 'facts' turn out to be inventions of his own imagination. He's been banned here numerous times and elsewhere. Or he 'reviews' books by other people and gives them a right slate. Most of his videos are him talking about how much he knows. You know trying to tell the world that he knows everything. He claims to know everything Atari but he really doesn't. His 'Laird's Lair' thing comes from the fact he claims Scottish ancestry and Laird is a archaic Scottish word meaning 'Lord' which says everything about his ego.
  35. Hi Stargunner! I definitely wanted the package to capture the look of the original Activision games. The game packaging, artwork, patch, etc will be the same quality as the original games. No blue & white labels here!
  36. Lol yeah the original PS1 is just a big grey box. The Skeleton Saturn is cool. In fact, it's so cool that it tells you that it's cool! Looks better in person, though.
  37. Maybe he's getting a running start to make it up Cloudy Mountain?
  38. He's obviously running from a......B17 Bomber! or maybe a giant arachnid or Robby the Robots younger cousin or Tron's deadly discs. 🙂
