  1. Fired it up for a moment, still need to work out what's going on. Looks fun nonetheless and might have to look into it tomorrow when i have the time
  2. It's ridiculous they're masquerading like they had anything to do with former Atari. I find it offensive and a kick in the teeth to those who made Atari what it was.
  3. I would say PSX and N64 fell into the classic/retro category in the past 10-15 years. Prior to that they were more in the modern age of gaming. Nowadays CD based aside, when it comes to the PSX the system has that old school feel, even though it was the stepping stone to the modern era of gaming. Had it's fair share of 2d sidescroller/platformers, remakes, ports and most Arcade ports were flawless. The PS2 and Xbox onward i would say have their own place in history but more as the early 3d era of the modern gaming industry of today. Every system has it's place but i personally think the PSX and N64 earned their spot in the old school golden era of gaming.
  4. Im fairly sure Nintendo wasn't buying the bit war nonsense until the N64 purely for marketing reasons. After all PPU's and RAM were making the most significant difference in graphical capabilities, much like modern cards are of today. Still the advance with 16bit and 32bit architecture did open the bottleneck for processing instructions, so the bit war wasn't completely irreverent. Nowadays with true 64bit architecture well the demand for more RAM is the main reason we have 64bit systems. Once again another bottleneck.
  5. You would think so but he put it down as "trivia" like he actually knew the facts rather then assumption. What also flaws that idea is he said 5200 was 8bit aswell as the 7800, when you would expect him to assume the 7800 was 16bit. Yet somehow he actually knew the Lynx was 16bit 🤔 almost like searched all the other systems besides the 2600. Makes you wonder what goes through their minds.
  6. Her website points straight to indiegogo vcs campaign
  7. Personally i agree they shouldn't compete just as if found cheating on AA HSC. I also beleive those playing at that level shouldn't be using AA HSC as proof for official highscore sites (why those sites would accept AA scores as proof is beyond me). I was always under the impression although it is competitive in AA HSC, everyone was playing for some fun. When it starts becoming world class competitive and for the sole purpose of abusing the AA honor system as proof for highscores on other sites, it kills the fun for everyone else. My two cents
  8. You blew your cover, they know you're one of us 😉
  9. Im willing to bet where bB is highlighting the syntax error isn't the actual location of the error. I have found when bB doesn't know exactly whats causing the error it will point to a whitespace at the approximate area it thinks is the issue. It's nothing new of an issue and usually for myself it's a typo or piece of code i have become sidetracked from and forgot to complete a statement ect. You should post the code so we can have a look to see if there is something you're overlooking. If you don't want to post code public feel free to send though PM to myself or Random Terrain
  10. Are you sure it's the white space causing the error? Have you tried removing the word function from the remark or the remark itself? 'function' is a key word used by bB and sometimes bB does strange things. Also you have the remark at the same indentation spacing as the 'if' statement. bB could be getting confused and trying to compile the remark as code.
  11. Atari Facebook Fan club be like... Most of them have suspiciously similar personalities... fake accounts or inside job?
  12. Don't get me wrong but i think you're missing the whole point. You said you have no connection to the old Atari opposed to us who have nostalgia. I wasn't having a go but rather pointing out the difference when buying a system from a reputable source instead of these bunch of jokers. You can feel free to like it, however AtariSA have no clue what they're doing. Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo all have a rich history in the software and hardware industry. Atari nowadays is nothing like the company it was and they are trying to masquerade their appearance. The Ataribawks is a half assed project in the attempt of sales based off Atari's previous history.
  13. So you're going to pay another $150 for Windows (if a legit copy) when you could just buy a windows installed laptop that will do everything and more for the same price. Not only that but you could have it in your hands right now rather then waiting. You have alot of faith in a company that has shown nothing and rather take the chance over reputable companies that already have capable products.
  14. Even still, what is the system going to run in 4k? If it barely runs borderlands 2 in 1080 id hate to see it ran in 4k even with the beefier hardware.
  15. For $200 i would say they're going to ship you the budget build with no peripherals now that they announced there will be different models. Well atleast you can still play the Atari vault games that you have no nostalgia for and netflix...
  16. Yeah that was Nestle for an Kit Kat commercial
  17. Well that's true, however at 40% of the price and something that resembles the classic look of a C64 it's actually not a bad deal, oh and packed with a joystick. Yeah it's not an OG C64 but as a novelty or even practicality for collectors who want to store their OG C64 it would make a nice piece. It looks to be a faithful fullsize flashback system. Still id wait till it's released and watch some reviews first to see if it's worth the $120. I also agree that AtariSA will pull something out their arse, although at the price they're asking it's going to fall short of expectations from their backers. Even their die hard fans like Max and Jon get frustrated with the lack of progress. It doesn't even know what it is and pushed into a market that doesn't exist. Even flashbacks, as cheap and nasty as they are, they have their place, yet the bawks is more like a uni students project. They really should have marketed it as another flashback with streaming capabilities and a software store.
  18. I assumed the AA HSC was just for fun and friendly competition hence the reason only a photo is required/preferred. I trusted everyone with the honer system and always thought AA highscores wouldn't be enough evidence for Highscore leader boards on official competition sites anyway. I follow the speed running community and for anything to be accepted there must be video footage and they do prefer live stream footage over recorded. I hope people haven't been cheating with the honesty system we have here. I like the honesty system as it's just a bit of fun and can just play without having to worry about recording ect. On the same token i do agree official world records should require non tampered full video footage. If you compete on a world championship level then expect people are going to want proof just like any other sport.
  19. Im more interested in the Commodore 64 reboot in December and actually looks like it's worth putting my money on. It's not trying to be some poor excuse of a console/unconsole with Netflicks. Good old fashion keyboard with no gimmicks, just a team listening to what the fans want. It will become alot more of an collectors item then this ridiculous Ataribox. Ataribox is just an insult to us real fans of the classic Atari systems. It's an embarrassment and their IP should be handed over to the real Atari, as compensation to the AA community. I slam the hammer down Now we're back on topic
