  1. Once upon a time there were two Midwesterners named Jim and Sean. One was tall, the other was...well, also tall, but who cares? There came a time when the two decided that their mission was to discuss two arcade games from Japan, leading them to...well, you'll just have to listen to find out! http://fab4it.com/piefactory/audio/PFP_Episode116.mp3

    supercat?

    I saw him and his wife at Midwest Gaming Classic in 2019. He came to an Atari mini-gathering I had at my apartment in 2007 and left a bare Toyshop Trouble ROM. Finally returned it to him last year.

    GoSub 7800 for sale

    I just ordered it, but PayPal forced me to use my WORK address and wouldn't let me change it...arrhghgh....(won't be at the office for at LEAST the remainder of the year.)
  4. Another chapter that has an almost-on-topic segment for AtariAge. Another month, another episode! In chapter 25: No, my computer is NOT my girlfriend! An exploration into the joys and sorrows of a 13-year relationship Digital Alopecia – What? Does this mean that someone lost finger hair? Well…you’ll need to listen to find out! https://schnookpodcast.com/2020/09/28/chapter-25/
  5. BTW, a word of warning when you *do* find it -- you *have* to use a PainLine-compatible joystick or else you won't be able to start a game. It only uses one button, but for some reason, the button will only work if it's on a two-button controller.
  6. I don't think there was a single defining moment, but it was kind of gradual. A high school friend (still among my best friends to this day) was singing the praises of Amiga and how much better it was over all other platforms. I had a Commodore 64C at the time. Well, fall of 1991 during homecoming week, my friend had managed to borrow a big-screen projection screen TV at the school, and during one of the mixers he had said TV set up with his Amiga 500, and that demo of Pinball Dreams running. It was stunning. But I kind of dismissed it because I felt I'd never be able to get one. (I had a $4-an-hour part-time job; I have no idea how my friend managed to get an Amiga!) That was my senior year. I started college the next fall, and basically the situation was my C64 was proving to be progressively more useless for anything but playing games, and I needed to upgrade. I hated Wintel machines (still do), and I felt...crippled...using a Mac. So Amiga was my choice. And I looooooooooooved that thing once I got it. (More in the next episode of Autobiography of a Schnook. )
  7. In episode 115, does Sean love Space Zap as much as Jim? Will they agree on a Space Invaders-esque shooter? Will George be reunited with his ticker tape machine? The Shadow knows. http://fab4it.com/piefactory/audio/PFP_Episode115C.mp3
  8. BTW, it's a week past my original deadline of August 19. To be totally honest with you, I haven't done a durned thing to prepare for the episode other than play the game, so I'm still open to taking feedback -- either textual or audio. (To be totally DIShonest, I'm COMPLETELY finished with the episode!)
  9. Would you consider making similar ones for the Mateos cart?? (Assuming you're lucky enough to get one of those into your hands...) The board won't fit in an unmodified shell.
  10. I was stunned when last year I saw (and reported) one of his YouTube videos where he's practically reading a hit list and packing a pistol. The man was obviously dangerous. So thankful I never had any interactions with him. It sucks that it took an innocent life for him to be stopped.
  11. I'm looking for feedback for a future episode of the Atari 7800 Homebrew Podcast (you can find it on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, or use this feed: http://feeds.feedburner.com/homebrew78) What are your thoughts on Putt 18 Miniature Golf? Deadline for feedback is 11:59pm CDT on Wednesday, August 19. You can also e-mail text or audio to homebrew78 -at- fab4it -dot- com. Comments are welcome any time, including after the deadlines; any feedback from after the deadlines will simply be addressed during a later episode. Thanks!
  12. Yep, that's how hot it gets in the summer, so break out your percussion instruments and play along with episode 114! Satisfaction guaranteed! (Note: satisfaction not guaranteed.) http://fab4it.com/piefactory/audio/PFP_Episode114C.mp3
  13. What? Time for another episode ALREADY?! Well, Bob DeCrescenzo has DONE IT AGAIN. This time, with some help from Kurt Woloch. In this episode we explore the latest addition to the 7800 homebrew library, the only home conversion of an arcade classic. https://homebrew78.fab4it.com/media/hbh_episode_0501.mp3
