  1. It's a proprietary blend of coconut pus, weasel warts, and seagull shavings.

      How about lark's vomit, ram's bladder and stainless steel bolts?

  2. It's sad that he's gone, but if you have to go out that way, at least it has a video game connection. youtu.be/EvU3LewUnZM?t=239 I'll probably go out in some boring, non-video game way and that's no fun. Some Dead Guy: "How did you go out?" Dead Me: "I sneezed and banged my head on the sharp corner of a shelf." Some Dead Guy: "Damn, what a boring way to go." Dead Me: "I'm sorry, I'll try to get hit by an asteroid or eaten by an alligator next time."
  3. I can't find the spoon that we once had. If you find it, don't try to bend it. That's impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truth: there is no spoon.

      Not to be confused with 'I'm Just A Mops', by the totally tubular 60's band 'The Mops'!  :D

      ^Now, There's some obscurity!  

  6. I just added example code to the bB page: randomterrain.com/atari-2600-memories-batari-basic-commands.html#kernop_background ;*************************************************************** ; ; Kernel options. Cost: loss of missile0. ; set kernel_options pfcolors no_blank_lines background ;*************************************************************** ; ; Sets background colors. ; pfcolors: $32 $34 $36 $38 $3A $3C $3E $3C $3A $38 $36 $34 end ;*************************************************************** ; ; Sets playfield pixel color. ; COLUPF = $CE ;*************************************************************** ; ; Sets up the playfield. ; playfield: ................................ ................................ ....XXXXXXXXXX....XXXXXXXXXX.... ....X......................X.... ....X......................X.... ....X......................X.... ................................ ................................ ....XXXX....XXX..XXX....XXXX.... ................................ ................................ end ;*************************************************************** ;*************************************************************** ; ; MAIN LOOP ; ; __Main_Loop ;*************************************************************** ; ; Sets top row background color. ; COLUBK = $32 ;*************************************************************** ; ; Displays the screen. ; drawscreen goto __Main_Loop ;*************************************************************** ; ; Puts the color black behind the score. ; asm minikernel sta WSYNC lda #$00 sta COLUBK rts end
  7. You can't use bkcolors. If I remember correctly, "pfcolors:" data goes to the background and there is only one color for the playfield. I wonder if there is a post here at AtariAge that explains why pfcolors is a valid choice when using background? Since the foreground data goes to the background, it shouldn't be allowed when you think about it.
  8. Seems like this might work: _My_Temp = 12 __PF_Check temp5 = var0[_My_Temp] if temp5 then goto __Done_PF_Check _My_Temp = _My_Temp + 1 if _My_Temp < 44 then goto __PF_Check goto __Level_Beat __Done_PF_Check
  9. 176 seems to only look normal if this is used: asm lda DF6FRACDATA lda DF4FRACDATA lda DF0FRACDATA lda DF1FRACDATA lda DF2FRACDATA lda DF3FRACDATA end So I have that in the code that is generated by the editor. The editor also has this in the code when using 88 rows: asm lda DF6FRACDATA lda DF4FRACDATA end The Atari Background Builder by kisrael now has DPC+ options. You might want to check that out and see if you like that better since it has more tools.
