  1. Hey Al, any update on digital purchases?
  2. Thanks for the reply. I look forward to the store upgrade.
  3. Just wondering when or if the ROM will be available for sale or otherwise. I just can't afford the Customs fees that I get hammered with!
  4. Hey folks. Does anyone know if it's at all possible to use the mouse scroll wheel as a paddle/driving controller in Stella? I have a Logitech mouse with a lovely smooth scroll wheel and it's just crying out to be used to play Breakout and the like.
  5. Just as an FYI, I'll be seeding for the foreseeable future. It's just too good a torrent to let it fall by the wayside.
  6. That'd be nice of you. Unfortunately, the postage is pretty high. If you do make more and have them next pay day (beginning of March), I'd be happy to take one (or two if my partner doesn't kill me!).
  7. I'd read that book! I recently picked up Mark Bussler's (of Classic Game Room fame) Pac-Man book. It's a fun little read. I keep an eye on your blog but I figured it was just a legacy thing as it hasn't been updated in a while (I'm not judging!). I've always found Pac-Man and its impact on popular and gaming culture to be fascinating. I work with kids 5-12 and most of them know of Pac-Man even though they've never played any of the games. That's some impact! I'll keep an ear to the ground in case you do decide to go for it. If you don't, well, at least I'll still have the PFP.
  8. Sorry for the double post but I just had a thought. Firstly, apologies if this suggestion causes you consternation or irritation. I was thinking about your upcoming Pac-Man extravaganza and then your impending 7800 homebrew hiatus. Have you ever thought about doing a fully fledged Pac-Man podcast (a Pac-Cast, if you will )? You and Inky seem to have a love for the wee yella fella and I feel like there is a ton of potential content if one takes into consideration things like merch, musicm the cartoons, spin off games, hacks, the whole Midway/GCC thang and, lately, hot gossip in the world of high scores. I would love to listen to something like that but I don't have the know-how or confidence to create my own. Just putting it out there.

    A New Marauder

    Hey. Is there a PAL60 version of this game? It looks really interesting (and I like the t-shirt!).
  10. Yeah, making it a 'mini-series' of sorts might be a lot of fun. It may also give you more opportunity for, perhaps, a guest spot or two?
  11. Yeah, there are a LOT of games for the Little Machine That Could. I had to stop collecting as I have a spending problem and can't reign myself in but when I was collecting I would always sent smaller goals to achieve. For instance, rather than going for the nigh impossible complete VCS collection you could maybe go for a complete Activision set or 20th Century Fox set. Or, as CDS alluded to, go for a collection of games that your mum had or games she wanted when young... PS: Welcome aboard.
  12. Thanks for seeding again guys. I know people can just directly download from Archive but I think keeping as many avenues of access open as possible can only be a good thing.
  13. I'd be interested in a cart if the game runs well on a PAL unit. Loving the title screen now. It makes a big difference to the presentation.
  14. ^ That's good to know. Thanks for clarifying. Perhaps,chas10e, you didn't download the entire archive? Would that be right?
  15. Yeah, the torrent size is now over 62 gig for some reason (I'm not sure what's changed). I've seen one seed pop up in my torrent client. I'm guessing that's you, then. Thanks for sharing. If I ever get the whole think dl'd (it's going to take quite sometime!) I'll seed indefinitely. That'll make two of us.
  16. Wow! Well, it looks like my pension's taken care of, then! Seriously, though, I have no intention of selling mine. Both my Princess Rescue and Boulder Dash are safe and sound in my (very small) collection. I'm going to keep an eye on the auction just to see how it goes, though.
  17. Is that how much Princess Rescue is worth these days?! Does that make it the most expensive homebrew there is for the 2600?
  18. Hey folks. After losing my previous download of all the videos from Archive.org I went back and picked up the torrent file. Sadly, there are no seeders for it and only a couple of peers. I wonder if anyone here downloaded the files by torrent and if they'd mind seeding for a while? I'd really appreciate it. Thanks in hope.

    PAL60 ROMS

    Being from sunny Scotland (PAL region!) and being a framerate snob, this is my favourite thread on this forum. I just wanted to say thank you to all those devs and hackers who take the time (and interest!) to create these wonderful PAL60 versions. Thank you.
  20. I was wondering if there's a PAL60 version of this hack? It looks like a lot of fun.
  21. This is kind of a moot conversation anyway. Everyone knows that the VIC-20 is the best 8 bit out there. Affordable (at the time), successful in the marketplace, reliable, easy to program, huge library of games and was the starting point of many luminaries in the tech industry today. Sure, the homebrew scene isn't as active as the C64 but it's still there and still producing the goods. As Jeff Minter once said: "Viva Vic!".
  22. I've always enjoyed that POS game Pac-Mania... No accounting for taste, I suppose. But, yeah, Professor Pac-Man is also welcome, as far as I'm concerned. The more, the merrier!
