  1. Damn, any time I listened to him on a podcast his passion for Atari shone through. RIP.
  2. I’ll donate some money once I’ve got my CC details to hand. I have no problem helping a person in need if I have the means to do so. This is what being part of a community is all about. EDIT: Right I've done that now.
  3. Ah, that makes sense. It's easy to forget the limitations the 8-Bits had when it comes to colours you can actually use at a given screen mode etc vs what the machine as a whole can generate. So I assume you're limited to like 4 colours for the sprites then right?
  4. They are looking great! Can I ask why are you using brown for a lot of it? Is the aim to match the C64 graphics and it’s lovely colour palette? It’s not like the Atari can’t do the greys and reds of the Arcade. Unless I’m missing something.
  5. Thanks for the heads-up. I love the Home-brew section is RG and I was wondering where it was in 208. I’ve donated.
  6. I think this is purely so you can use the port area for the new socket. Certainly that was the case with mine. I was never going to use the modulator again ever.
  7. Loved both of the episodes on YouTube, looking forward to more.
  8. Wow, this is very impressive! It's like I'm transported back 30 years and playing the ST version in my bedroom. Good job all involved. Looking forward to more.
  9. Great read thanks for posting. What I take away from it is that Atari not opening up to 3rd Parties early was a huge mistake and also the lack of 80col mode too. Still can’t imagine how the Apple II got so popular given it’s price. But being from the UK I didn’t get exposed to what was going on in the US from that point if view, nor probably would I have been interested given I was born in 1970.
  10. I always preferred Galaxian & Galaga over Gorl or Phoenix in the arcades they always seemed much more polished to me. Gorf esspecially is glitchy and flickery as though the hardware was being pushed too far. This Galaga demo on the Atari 8-Bits looks amazing!
  11. I'd never of thought of Elektra Glide being a motorbike game until I saw that title screen!
  12. Ah that's a fun way to keep track it. Just looked as all mind Multibook disks and the highest Clone Generation was 73 and the all had tghe Clone Originator of 1.
  13. No me neither until today. I only noticed because disks I images about 20 years ago weren't actually imaged correctly. So I finally got round to dealing with them today and in each case the ones with issues were RobC disks. I'm going to have to try booting them on a machine to see if they are just rotten disks or something else is at play.
  14. This is weird, but just this afternoon I was trying to image some RobC menu disks (with Music) and my 1050 (with a Happy Upgrade from AtariMax ) was get getting bad sectors. This is using the APE Pro system software. Could it be that Happy Drives have issues with these types of disks?
