  1. The Nightmare Spectre on PS1 Doom was simply a flag that was set that doubled a monster's health and gave them that negative color scheme. Theoretically you could flag any monster with the "Nightmare" flag in PS1 Doom and the same effect applies. That same flag could also be theoretically recreated for another version of Doom.
  2. This looks very cool! I've played the Speccy version via Fuse (and the GBA remake which is not half bad), and my 800XL does need some new software!
  3. Is there a SAP file of the music? I'd like to listen to it outside of the demo.
  4. Don't need a video upgrade for the 800; the video output from it is plenty solid.
  5. That's the one I was looking at! It's definitely a great looking expansion for the 800, but yeah, I've not had luck finding any as of late, at least not cheap enough!
  6. Asking on behalf of a friend: Out of curiosity, I was wondering if there are any expansions for the Atari 800, much in the vein of the expansions we have for the Atari XL/XE computers (RAM expansion, etc.) The Atari 800 maxes out officially at 48K RAM, which isn't enough for most of the homebrew games and such that target 64K+ RAM systems. I remember reading a long time back about some RAM expansions and such that do work on the Atari 800, but it's been ages and I'm wondering if most of that information is still relevant or not. One I remember reading about was the Incognito card (?), which gave the 800 a nice RAM boost. I *think* that was the name of it? (see what I mean by it's been ages? ) Anywho, can anyone point me to some good expansions that target the good old 800 computer that may still be available for purchase somewhere? I don't need anything like a SIO2SD or an Ultimate Cart; those are handled already.
  7. Would something like this be possible on Atari 8-bit as well? A Mega Man game on the Atari computers or the XEGS would be truly awesome!
  8. I can picture this being a Melody cart game on the VCS! And technically, Super Cobra *is* a Konami game...
  9. Can you make a SAP file of this so I can listen to it on my devices?
  10. Mappy for the 2600 looks absolutely crazy! Leave it to Champ Games to code up some awesome games!
  11. From the album: Games! Games! Games!

    First purchase from the AtariAge Store: Lady Bug and Pac-Man 4K! The first of many!

    Games! Games! Games!

    Carts and hauls for my Atari consoles!
  13. +1 on Bubbles, Zoo Keeper, Elevator Action, and Legend of Kage! All of those games would rock on the 5200! I especially would love to hear the music from Legend of Kage played on the POKEY!
  14. If I had to pick... > Marble Madness > Commando > David's Midnight Magic > Crazy Climber > Moon Cresta > Time Pilot > Gradius (a bit of a stretch? The NES got a port and that system has less RAM (2K) than the Atari 5200 (16K) ) > Rally-X > Mappy
  15. I have Sinistar in my collection, and that is one excellent conversion! Highly recommended! But now that I see that Super Pac-Man is available...
  16. I've seen Atari Flashback Portables at my local Target dropping to as low as $40. I've been a little curious as to how they are, but is it worth picking one up? Are there any caveats I should be aware of? How is game compatibility? How is hardware emulation? The only Flashback I've ever had was the Flashback 2 (I have two of those), but the Portable seems interesting.

  18. PM me pics. I have to wait for a bit on purchases because I'm traveling soon, but perhaps afterwards I might consider one!
  19. It's time to kick ass and chew bubble gum. And I'm all outta gum.

      "Yeah, piece of cake!"

  20. Very nice cover! I like the slightly slowed down tempo as well; it gives it a more powerful feel!
  21. The first Zool was released for the Amiga (in OCS, AGA, and CD32 flavors), Atari ST, DOS, SNES, Genesis, Game Boy, Game Gear, and Sega Master System. I have copies of the Amiga OCS, DOS, and SNES ports in my library. The second game was released on Amiga (same versions as the first), DOS, and the Jaguar. Problem is though is that although Zool 2 looks great on the platforms it came out on, it would've looked far too basic for the N64 and would've been met with some nasty derision for being a 16-bit game on a 64-bit platform. And IIRC the Jaguar version did get such harsh reception from some gaming magazines back in the day. If anything, if Gremlin had N64 dev kits, they could've done a Zool 64 on the Nintendo 64 and go the whole "3D platforming" route. But they didn't, and whether that's a wise move or not remains subject to opinion.
