  1. I just updated the bB page to be more clear: https://www.randomterrain.com/atari-2600-memories-batari-basic-commands.html#rand_rand16
  2. I thought needing to add the decimal point (with a zero) was a feature, not a bug when dealing with fixed point values?
  3. Have you clicked on the "Rearranged PAL Chart" button here: https://www.randomterrain.com/atari-2600-memories-tia-color-charts.html#ntsc_pal_color_conversion
  4. "Show us the way to get out of this world, for that's where everything is."

      Although I don't remember it per se,   my guess is I watched this on TV in the 70s...We always watched Donny & Marie.

      I watched it on a black and white TV when it was new. I didn't get to see Star Wars until it was rereleased a few years later, so I was grasping at anything Star Wars back then, even if it was horrible.


      I also wanted to have the sexy time with Marie, so I'd watch that show no matter how bad it was from week to week.

      Nicely said...Classy!  I saw her on an infomercial once and I couldn't believe how great she still looks!!

  5. Boring! Enough about back teria! When are we going to learn about front teria?

  6. The moving guys will be moving our stuff tomorrow morning. I'm going to pack up my computer and related things now. I may not be back online for a few days. All depends how fast I can unpack and set everything back up.

      I just wanted to say good luck. We're all counting on you both.

      Internet is working now, but I have boxes piled on my bed and I'm typing this standing up.

      HMOVE has completed it task.  Only took 22 hours.

  7. I saw mommy ingratiating goblins' cause underneath the goblin slop last night.

  8. Try the example program to make sure. Seems that individual virtual sprite collisions and player1 for all virtual sprite collisions both work.
  9. I think "if collision(player0,player1)" can still work for all the virtual players. Seems to work here: https://www.randomterrain.com/atari-2600-memories-batari-basic-commands.html#ex_dpc_collision
  10. It's reigning men!




  11. Everyone needs a good Squeeze once in a while:

      1987?   HMmmm...I saw this video sometime BITD but probably 90s if I had to guess...Mainly remember that guitar bending.

      How funny, just saw this video on Squeeze...




      And saw them in Concert back in December when they toured with Hall & Oats.


      My favorite song of theirs?   Yeh, probably Hourglass and Tempted.

  12. You are one potato shy of a bowling league.

      I'm one fry short of a happy meal.

      I am one chip short of having it on my shoulder...

  13. We moved a few semi-large things to the new house and got the garage door remote working yesterday. The big move is happening some time during the first week of April.

      for the love of god..why would you move to Canada!!

  14. Besides going to your profile page, you can also look at the upper right on any forum page, click on the word Create, then click Status and do it right there.
  15. Ran into some DPC+ batari Basic Atari 2600 scanline problems with a Lillapojkenpåön trick I was trying. I thought I'd have to abandon the trick for a while, but after rewriting that section of my code, looks like the problem is gone. Now the Atari 2600 ball has animated colors. More interesting to look at than the plain old single-color missile I was using before.

  16. Reboot can mess up random numbers: https://www.randomterrain.com/atari-2600-memories-batari-basic-commands.html#reboot
  17. Thanks. I just added this to my bookmarks bar: atariage.com/forums/discover/220/ I thought I clicked on something by mistake to make status updates go away. I get busy and forget to look anyway, but I tried to look at least once a day. (Ended up only being a few times a week most of the time.) With this new status update page, I see that images and videos are viewable without needing to click to visit each person's profile page. Less clicking is good. Just scroll down and see it all.
  18. Found out yesterday that I won't have to mow the yard at the new house we're renting. The owner pays somebody to do it. No yard work is nothing to sneeze at.

  19. My DPC+ batari Basic game is looking more finished. I got some major things done last night and it's working as expected with no bugs. Now I have to focus on making it more fun, then I'll add sound effects.

      Look forward to seeing it!

  20. Just found out that we can stop hunting for a house to rent. We got the one we applied for. Ranch style. No stairs to climb.

      I prefer bleu cheese style.

  21. Trying to de-hoard before moving. Is Boot magazine and Family PC magazine from the late 1990s worth keeping?

      Kudos for dehoarding!


      Regarding the mags, probably not much value in those.

      Boot magazine, no. BooB magazine, absolutely. schwing GIF

      Cool - hadn't seen the Circus Boy clip before.


      Admittedly, I hadn't searched for one either.

  23. Speaking of masks, I just stumbled upon this video clip today: twitter.com/drsimonegold/status/1500202116958334983
