  1. Minidig example: http://www.qotile.net/minidig/code/bigmove.asm VDEL explanation: https://atariage.com/forums/topic/281539-vdel/
  2. You might get onto Fox News for a world record 20 year necrobump. :-)

    Congo Bongo?

    Very nice. Looks like you would be able to do Marble Madness with that technique as well.
  4. The most dependable line doubler for this should be an old Faroudja machine. My second pick would be a DVDO iScan vp50pro. The GBS with custom firmware might also work well, but I haven't tried it.
  5. https://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?t=33358&start=100 There it is.
  6. "Sorg" didn't just dismiss it. He spewed a nasty condescending shitpost and made it clear he thinks the entire practice of ARM assist has no merit (in his eyes). I don't know if it's been scrubbed since then, but it happened.
  7. ZackAttack built the ACE format for C++ development. I understand there is a classic "chicken and egg" problem; it might not be worth all the time and effort. It would really help me out, though. Working exclusively on real hardware feels like a time warp. https://atariage.com/forums/topic/281105-open-source-c-project-template-now-available/ PM if you need some test roms.
  8. Do you have plans to implement .ACE support?
  9. I know there is disagreement, but the terms "homebrew" and "hack" have both developed negative connotations and perceptions in the general gaming community. I'm not pretending to be down with the kids (in fact saying "down with" is likely faux pas), but I don't see how the words can be saved if the evangelists (*that's us*) are getting old. The incredible hacks on this site are mods. They should be labeled as mods. That term commands the respect the software deserves. Homebrew should be abolished completely. It's new software. Just my two cents.
  10. I know having full control is great, but would it be easier for Audacity to partner with AtariAge next time? I feel like Audacity had too much on their plate. With such a small market, does it make sense to reinvent the wheel? If they wanted to look professional and distance themselves from amateurs, this website fiasco didn't accomplish that. (Sorry if that is hard to hear, it's true.) They could also go with crowdfunding. That would offload the website and traffic management to a better prepared party.
  11. bB was one of the greatest achievements on the system. It's more than just games. Put yourself on the list of greats, batari. Yes, right there with the Kitchen bros and Crane.
  12. Digital downloads might come along later. I hope so. I'm going to wait. I remember frustration from side scrolling platform games that don't scroll. I am hoping there won't be surprise consequences when the player enters a new screen. That kind of thing was normal back in the 1980's, but game design has changed. In my opinion, it's verboten now; so, I'll be watching reviews to see how it plays.
  13. With a little elbow grease, you can get the MIST 2600 core going on MiSTer. Although, it would take quite a bit of work to get it 100%. I dropped the entire thing after I encountered Sorgelig. Looking forward to this 7800 core. Thanks for the hard work and patience.
