  1. ANNOUNCEWMENT: I stand with Ukraine by not playing Chelnov Atomic Runner in MAME, or Crisis in the Kremlin. 

  2. Looking at this Amico launch/proposal is like trying to sell a horse & buggy in modern times. 

    1. Reaperman


      The horse-and-buggy niche is probably way larger. I do kind of want to play that moon patrol, but that's about as positive as I can be for now. I hope that at least gets released somewhere even if the console doesn't.

    2. BydoEmpire


      I really want to play Cloudy Mountain... maybe the new Night Stalker and Shark Shark if the over-the-top graphics don't ruin it.  I'd totally buy these games for a few bucks on Steam or GOG. Hard to justify $300 for them, though.  I wished the Amico all the best and I was keeping my eye on it for sure.  You never know, maybe they'll find a way to pull through and I hope they do.

  3. Watching Airwolf season 4, they love using Centipede's spider sound effects for computer noises. 

    1. BrianC


      That reminds me of those episodes of Wonder Woman where they used a sound effect from Road Runner cartoons. 

    2. Leonard Smith

      Leonard Smith

      I guess they moved up from the usual 2600 Pac-Man and Donkey Kong effects that are used in most movies and shows.

    3. thanatos


      Hah, had the TV in the other room and heard the Centipede sounds - it was a Knight Rider episode, and KITT was scanning something.



  4. After getting frustrated trying to get the paddle to work in Windows(works just fine in RetroPie), I made a quick tutorial to get the paddle working in Retroarch. https://imgur.com/gallery/ZSXPqFY
  5. You need to watch "Saturday Morning All Star Hits!" - It is one of THE most bizarre shows Netflix has ever made. Very Adult Swim-like. 

    1. GoldLeader


      WOOOHOO!   I will be checking this out!

  6. After much waiting, I finally picked up a signal on the CB I set up in the house. It's like a blast from the past. The CB chatter hasn't changed in forever!

    1. Rogerpoco


      My Family were deer hunters in North Florida, running deer thru the woods with dogs, CB's were a necessity-

      I was too young, but my Grandpa was 23, my Dad was 23-2, so I guess I'd be 23-3, if I needed a handle.


      (I'm a "the third").

  7. A podcast I listen to: "WHo Are these Podcasts?" is going to review the Amico All Access podcast. When 2 hobbies collide.

  8. Remember that one obscure TV show that nobody remembers? There's a discord for that.

      Hard Time on Planet Earth?


    3. GoldLeader


      Square Pegs fan club?

    4. doctorclu


      Square Pegs was a great show.   Totally Head!

  9. I went. I was a bit disappointed it was mostly a swap meet. A bit smaller than Midwest Gaming Classic and Portland Retrogaming Expo. It had the smallest of the arcades among the three. But we had fun anyways, since we have never been to Austin.
  10. After Midwest Gaming Classic several times & Portland's several times, I got kind of burnt out with shows. But this year it's Classic GameFest in Austin for the hell of it.
  11. Welp, officially going to Classic Gaming Fest in 2 months.

  12. Watching the Nintendo doc on Crackle. Damn that 80s synth soundtrack is good. Sounds like Tangerine Dream(or is it?)

  13. trying out & streaming to twitch with Atari 2600 games for fun: https://www.twitch.tv/the_s1500


  14. I say we change the topic name from canceled to 2021 is on. Something positive.
  15. I'm on the fence on whether to fly or drive to this event. It would involve 17 hours of driving from Minnesota. I haven't hit a classic gaming convention(Portland's or Midwest Gaming Classic) in a few years, so I have that itch for a geeking-out weekend. Still there's the concern of the covid mandates in effect at that time.
  16. Have you worked a job? You may be entitled to compensation!

  17. Backing up my Playstation 2 games to hard drive. Wow, some of these are only 2 gigs. And a GIF for no reason.

    1. wongojack


      and some of them are even on CD

  18. Randomly decided to play Ikari Warriors 2 via Amazon Games, and it works great on an Xbox controller. Was kicking ass without a rotary controller!

    1. Wally1


      Go for it, it's 1985

    2. _The Doctor__

      _The Doctor__

      It's been available for NES and PC forever... why would you bother with amazon for it.

    3. S1500


      _The Doctor_ The NES version isn't that good, and the Amazon(SNK classics package) version integrates the controller just right.

  19. Watching the awful movie "Moving Violations" and they are playing Pole Position. 

    1. GoldLeader


      Been a long time.   That's the one where he holds up his license and it's Indiana Jones (the Indy  music plays) and then he tells the cop "I photograph better than I look", right?  haha ... Good stuff...

    2. x=usr(1536)


      Think I've seen that one - any idea if it was renamed to 'Dangerous Curves' in some markets?

  20. Okay, just gonna say it, Windows POwerSHell blows the doors off of PuTTY.

      Headless Windows server sounds to me like a headless chicken.

    3. masseo1


      Actually back when I was stuck with a windows laptop at work I used to use CygWin. I  welcome all to take the step to Linux. :) 

      Indeed  Powershell is much better than putty for ssh control. Im not sure how it handles profiles and ssh keys, bash is better than that, then the next step would be a linux virtual machine (as windows user at my place do), then get rid of windows altogether and transition to Linux.

    4. CPUWIZ


      Using PS 7.1.0 and CygWin for work all the time.  PUTTY is different, long abandoned.

  21. I did some google searches, but found nothing. I'm tired of the same ol notification tones on my phone. Surely there's a website with downloadable soundbytes I can use. Anyone got one?
  22. The "Fast Times at Ridgemount High" text adventure for the TI-99/4A is frustrating. I need a walkthru.

      high voltage

      Just think of Phoebe Cates

    3. Tempest


      That's a thing?  Seriously?

    4. S1500


      It's a thing. Seriously. A text adventure.

  23. Are the angels on the Angel Soft packages dead kids?

    1. retrorussell


      They bled to death out the ass from rough toilet paper.

    2. eddhell


      are they related to the cherub on Van Halen's "1984" album?

    3. frankodragon


      They do form a gang and beat the stuffing out of those Charmin bears. 

  24. Why hasn't Bonzi Buddy released an official statement on their stance on COVID 19? What saftey measures are they going to take?

    1. thanatos


      Didn't see one on the X10.com pop-ups either.  Or anything from Angelfire.


  25. If 2020 was a console, it would be the Atari VCS!

      I would have said CD-I myself.


    3. CPUWIZ


      Wouldn't you have to set fire to it first?

    4. cedropoole


      SouljaGame Console because 2020 was a poser of a year
