  1. Your topic title is slightly different than what you are asking. But I remember some old games that use 4 joystick ports on 400/800 do not work properly on XEGS). I believe that has something to do with the external keyboard or with the BIT that controls internal missile command. It has been way too long. I should dive in this again. But IIRC Basketball did also not work right on the XEGS. At least with OR without keyboard (on of these two options.
  2. 2 things: 1. The idea is pretty cool, both the idea of simply 64K and the idea of 512K. I am probably the only fool in this scene, but I still like the idea that my Atari is simply loaded with 64K and nothing more. 2. The 1bit DRAMS are pretty easy to obtain (if I am correct) ... I also stacked 2x four of them in my 64K upgrades in stead of 2x 4bit. Worked excellent. So if people still want the 64K internal, but they can not get the 4bit DRAMS, they could do to the trick with the stacks. I will have to think about how they are connected. You have to cut some legs. It has ben over 15 years since the last time I did that.
  3. Well it's hard to say when it is pushing hardware to the limits. A few titles that do cross my mind: * Yoomp * Bosconian * Thetris/Rolltris * Stunt car racer * Bomb Jack * Prince of Persia * PacMan (the Arcade remake) -> especially because of the speed of the game, this port is amazing. * AtariBlast! * Time Pilot! From the (slightly) older games, I absolutely think of Zybex and BallBlazer, and some other titles that are already mentioned here.
  4. Hey thank you so much for this. I personally dislike this kind of jokes in games. I remember one of the positive critics of Yoomp was that when you miss, it is never the game to blame, but simply yourself. I think when you aim right and you fire at the right time, it should simply be a hit. I agree: we need a fully working game. I actually like the game. I also would appreciate a setting where you can play the game and the tune plays.
  5. Which is -by the way- still an amazing version of MyBIOS. I still use it from time to time, and I must say it is an excellent version. Let's see how far the topic starter gets. I still use a MyIDE-1 with flash every now and then, simply because it works so well. So if the topic starter gets the stuff working, we are here to give him the best experience possible with it!
  6. Yeah... the Bug meister rejected the job since he appeared not to be their hardware guy.
  7. If there are particular XEX games that do not want to load from MyIDE 2 FAT32 loader ( it is not sure to me whether you try to do that ) you could try to use my patching procedure for those games. I have to look it up myself, but it is on this forum somewhere. I noticed that there are some flaws in the FAT32 loader and that some games do not run (XEX). I fixed that with some kind of universal patcher. It worked extremely well.
  8. OH great, we play Nibbler. I love that game. I should find some time!
  9. That is an interesting command as well! Thank you so much!
  10. That is a good one. Will GOTO break the For Next Loop? With other words, when a GOTO is done, is it possible to start a new FOR NEXT loop with T as counter?
  11. Perhaps a stupid question haha, but I was wondering: is it possible to exit a FOR...NEXT loop? The only thing I can think of is this: 10 FOR T=1 to 10000 20 IF PEEK(53279)=6 THEN T=10000; REM checks whether START is pressed 30 NEXT T As soon as START is pressed, T becomes 10000 and the FOR..NEXT loop will be exit on line 30. I am wondering: can this be done less 'drastic' than this? Thanks M.
  12. Dear all! My contribution with the HSC is going up and down. This has most of the time simply to do with one thing: time. I am still trying to finish my study (Master education in Arts) and it is a difficult and hard process. I hope I will be finished this year in May or June... but you'll never know how things go. So I'll try to contribute with scores in the HSC but I can make no promises at all. I hope that's ok! Have fun with Atari 8bit! Greetz Marius
  13. Recently I played this game, and I have to say, it is amazingly challenging, and actually lots of fun to play. The graphics are colorful and very friendly. Very nice game indeed!
