  1. Love that, too. Thanks for sharing!
  2. The number of pages is not fixed and depends on how much stuff you (the members) send us. I don´t get tired of mentioning this: This is YOUR magazine, YOUR platform. You can send in anything Atari related you want to share with others. If it is not German, I will translate it for the German magazine. Magazine 139 has 32 pages, 140 has 52 pages and 141 has 44 pages. As you might recognize, the number of pages just has to be divisible by four. But the number of pages is just quantitiy, not automatically quality. The quality comes from the articles, and I think, it is quite high, too. And now I have to go back on making the english PDF happen.
  3. Don´t tell anybody. Imagine everybody wants personal delivery right now. I mean, if we had members in Hawaii or the Seychelles...
  4. That name just seems to be legit.
  5. At least for Bomb Jake I know, that there was a Cartridge version on sale. It also saves highscores on the cart. I got one, but I´m sure they were completely sold out quickly and there never was a second run.
  6. I have to process everything manually and right now I have a lot of work and there are really many requests. I´m just processing everything that get in the last days. Maybe you are one of those living in a town called "House"? There will be a new process, as this manual process is not very fast.
  7. I had to use OS B to make it run.
  8. No joke, but not ready yet. To not make it a one-man-show I got support and will create the workflow at the weekend and then see, which magazine is ready first (probably 139, as I got most translations for that already). If the workflow is successfull, for the next issue we will be much faster.
  9. Check WUDSN IDE (http://www.wudsn.com/index.php/ide). With that you code with all comfort in eclipse and with the push of a button your program will compile and be started in an emulator. When on a Mac: Works nicely with Atari800MacX. Also with Altirra, but that´s a bit trickier to set up.
  10. For those who are not using the ABBUC forums: Every last Wednesday of a month from 9pm to 11pm (Berlin time) we run the Highscorecompetition. The game is choosen randomly and announced shortly before 9pm. Tonight it´s "Bandits" Join the ABBUC Forums, go to "Community" and choose "Chat". There choose "Bundesliga" and just talk to us. Holgibo will tell you how to enter your scores. At the end of a season there are some winners with PRIZES. They are announced at the annual convention (JHV, October). Come in and have fun!
  11. Ok, even in small Germany the magazines arrived distributed over three days. Let´s watch how delays are in the US.
  12. Great, so Europe (including UK) shoud be covered by now. Anybody in the US/Canada already got it? And my apologies to our Chilean friends: German postal service still does not deliver there. -> https://www.deutschepost.de/de/c/coronavirus.html I hope you guys are doing well and are not affected by the virus. We hear dramatic stories about infections in South America.
  13. The game is not property of the ABBUC, @playsoft has every right to publish it in any form he wishes as it is his work. Thankfully, he gave the other members some benefit to being a member, by releasing it through the ABBUC first. If he doesn´t want to release it to the general public himself, we could release it to the public (there is a free download area on the website) when we publish the next magazine, making it an ABBUC exclusive for three months. We don´t want to hide stuff from non-members, but we love to have some exclusive stuff making a membership even more worthwile. And with Biscuits being a really great software, he will get a little reward from ABBUC. And saying is, I remind all ABBUC members, that there always is a little gift for the winner of the Intro-contest. Not, that we had much choice the last months, but maybe some of you feel like writing a little Intro for the ABBUC magazine too. It even can be in BASIC, I don´t mind. Of course we like high quality software like that from playsoft, but we also see the magazine as a platform for every member, showing off their first steps in programming and probably get some feedback. So: Keep on coding!
  14. I did that a few years ago and can confirm, that it works perfectly well.
