  1. Are you his boyfriend?
  2. By the way, it would awesome if you gave us some insight instead of being vague/ambiguous to solely just help promote the device.
  3. Im guessing FreeBSD or some Linux Distro such as Ubuntu or Android. I just hope the SDK doesnt suck and you could something with ease thats similar to the feel of Pygame or Love2D or Pyglet. Fuck Unity.
  4. I have been emailing the creators over and over and they never respond. On their kickstarter page they have 20+ people asking for what they are owed. Anyone able to sell me a copy?
  5. How do I find out the limitations for my game so that I can plan my game out accordingly? For example, how many sprites can I have on the screen at once, or how many pixels wide/tall is the screen?
  6. If a person wanted to put his homebrew game onto a cart how could this be done? The case could be 3D printed or someone may have blank shells/cases, but I am lost on how to do the chip/flast/rom part. Is there a place you can get the chips/flash and then load your game onto it and them assemble it with the case?
  7. Hello, I am glad I was told about Batari Basic as it seems to be the only retro console that allows high-level language programming (please correct me if wrong as I would love to know) I am currently making a cross platform game which uses the LOVE framework, its using Lua + SDL and here is an example of what I have https://gist.github.com/anonymous/66a485aeedaaf8f89d8c Does Batari Basic resemble any of this as far as how easy it is to draw a sprite (guess you cant do that) or text? How about the game loop? If I had to guess its going to be a lot more complicated... Example code: love.window.setMode(640, 700, {vsync = false}) -- global vars screen_width = love.graphics.getWidth() screen_height = love.graphics.getHeight() stage = 0 dt_mark = 0 set_mark = 1 boss_bullet_mark = 1 dt_boss_bullet_mark = 0 -- Creating tables Level_One = {} Player = {} StartScreen = {} Bullet = {} Boss = {} Boss_Bullet = {} -- Boss function Boss.init() local self = {} self.x = 100 self.y = 100 self.direction = 1 self.hit = {255, 0, 0} self.safe = {41, 128, 185} self.color = self.safe self.bullets = {} self.image = love.graphics.newImage("img/ellison_rect.png") self.hit_sound = love.audio.newSource("sounds/hit.wav") self.width = self.image:getWidth() self.height = self.image:getHeight() function self:draw() --love.graphics.setColor(self.color) love.graphics.setColor(255, 255, 255) love.graphics.draw(self.image, self.x, self.y) --love.graphics.rectangle("fill", self.x, self.y, self.width, self.height) end function self:update(dt) if boss_bullet_mark == 1 then dt_boss_bullet_mark = love.timer.getTime() boss_bullet_mark = 0 end if love.timer.getTime() > dt_boss_bullet_mark + 0.5 then spawn_boss_bullet(self.x + self.width/2, self.y + self.height, player.x, player.y, self.bullets) boss_bullet_mark = 1 end if self.direction == 1 then self.x = self.x + 50 * dt else self.x = self.x -

  8. Definately wouldnt mind using BASIC. Do you got an example of some code that demonstrates drawing an image to the screen and the game loop? I edited my post but this is the current game I am working on, im wondering in Batari Basic can be as easy? https://gist.github.com/anonymous/66a485aeedaaf8f89d8c
  9. Is there any tools available where you can use a high-level language to program for the 2600? I started making games with pygame (python+SDL) and was wondering if its possible to do this with any Atari system? If not, is it even possible for any retro system at all? It seems Dreamcast maybe but damnit...I dont want to do any low-level programming....Is there anything that resembles this set up which I have for my current game: https://gist.github.com/anonymous/66a485aeedaaf8f89d8c
  10. Whats the average amount of days it takes to get it once you placed your order in USA?
  11. also, do you have pictures? is the unit in good condition and it comes with (2) joysticks?
  12. Also, what games could you throw in? Do you got Donkey Kong?
