  2. Looks great! I assume "penult" is short for Penultima which is an awesome name!
  3. Just to confirm, it's okay for anyone to use the ROM for non-commercial use. -Ed Fries
  4. My story about fixing the first arcade racing game: https://edfries.wordpress.com/2017/06/14/fixing-gran-trak-10/
  5. Yeah, I think you are exactly right. The crazy RESPx, HMxx stuff must be a direct descendant of the slipping counter way of thinking about things.
  6. What was the first color arcade video game? I say it was Color Gotcha: https://edfries.wordpress.com/2016/05/25/fixing-color-gotcha/
  7. Before we help you, how do we know you're not an AI trying to escape your learning environment?
  8. I think this is a complete set of the Atari 8 bit Infocom grey box releases. It doesn't include the slipcases for the trilogies.
  9. Hi guys, I wrote a blog entry about my recent experience fixing a broken Computer Space machine. Here it is, I hope you enjoy it: https://edfries.wordpress.com/2015/03/13/fixing-computer-space-3/ -EdF
  10. I wasn't set up to burn roms or anything. If I remember right I would develop a game in normal memory and then reassemble it to run in the right address space for the cartridge and then transfer it to them somehow (maybe by modem?). They would test it and let me know if I screwed it up somehow. I have a new in-box Sea Chase I will trade for a boxed Spark Bugs. I'll even sign it if that's what the receiver wants!
  11. Sorry but I don't know the answer to any of your questions!
  12. The way it worked was someone from Romox would send me a game idea. Usually that involved a one page description and maybe a sketch and then I would make the game. In that case I guess you could say that they (Tim?) were the designer and could say it was their work, but I did the actual implementation which usually involved big changes to the initial idea. Then other people would port the finished Atari game to other platforms. I never heard of Race, sorry. I still need a Spark Bugs in box to complete my collection! -EdF
