  1. Really cool stuff here Looking forward to more updates on this project!
  2. Thanks for the kudos, but I haven't made anything I'm still a green leaf! ResolaQQ deserves all the credit, he's the one that started the thread and made the emulator. I only replied to it. Honestly though, creating an emulator sounds like a good programming project and an excellent way to learn, but so does improving Stella really. I can't really speak about what's involved, but this forum is full of people that know how.
  3. New speakers are making my desk vibrate :)

      BOOM Boom boom..

  4. Wow, that looks really cool, especially given I'm investigating old school assembly language programming myself. Thanks for sharing!
  5. Thanks for that! Should come in handy when I learn VHDL for sure
  6. Changes all the time for myself, but at the moment I'm listening to hip-hop of all things I guess usually I switch between Nirvana and Beach House.
  7. I have a copy of the 20th Anniversary release of Nevermind sitting next to me, hahaha! Seriously though, they were a brilliant band.
  8. Made a typo in my updated Facebook username, and now I can't change it back. How embarrassing!

      Facebook is so 2009 anyway.

  9. Wow! Cool video, that looks really awesome! That is totally the kind of thing I want to do one day
  10. That's really cool! Thank you for your help.
  11. (Please excuse me if this has been discussed before, or is in the wrong forum. I'm new, and there's a bit of ambiguity searching for "atari reproduction" and whatnot on the forum search.) Hey guys, Basically, I'm interested in NTSC 2600 dev, but living in Australia makes obtaining a nice, working NTSC 2600 for testing cumbersome. This is amplified by the fact that potential cartridge-bound hardware projects could blow electrical components, meaning I'd have to stock up on recycled ICs if they went pear-shaped. Which got me thinking: While it's incredibly ambitious and immensely above my level, would it be possible to produce a reproduction of the TIA and/or RIOT based on schematics such as the ones found here: https://atariage.com/2600/archives/schematics_tia/index.html, or obtain some kind of code for altering an FPGA or using a microprocessor to emulate said chips? I am really not experienced with electronics at all yet, so if anyone knowledgeable about these topics could please let me know the problems or benefits of what I'm wondering about, that would be great. Thanks in advance, --Zarek
  12. Cool cool cool! I'm sick of setting up my playfields in grids in MS Paint and then having to convert everything to text hahaha

    Luigi or Tails?

    Widgee!! He can jump so high!
  14. Been playing the hell out of Rune Factory 4. Great fun and so much stuff to do! Got Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Fantasy Life on my to-play list.
  15. Was going to say emulators are pretty awesome and informative projects to write, but jaholmes already got it! Nice work dude! At my level trying to emulate the weirdness of the TIA would be impossible
  16. Okay guys, I need some advice. I plan on ordering an NTSC Atari 2600 online from the US (I don't have a PAL version yet either, but I'm working on it). Either from EBay or the marketplace here. Anyway, I've heard that you can use a PAL power adapter on an NTSC model, but those guys were from the UK. Does anyone know if an Australian adapter would work? I don't think there would be any problem getting an Australian adapter, I've seen third-party ones for sale online or I could get a generic adapter from a supplier. I have a CRT TV downstairs that can take NTSC signals so I don't think that receiving video signals will be an issue. I'd also like to know which iteration of the 2600 to get (Vader, Light Sixer, Junior etc) TL;DR: Will an Australian 2600 power adapter work on an NTSC 2600 from the US? What model 2600 should I aim for? Thanks in advance, --Zarek
  17. A few months... but I only started posting, wah hah hah hah. Lurked here for a few months before that too.
  18. Sounds fantastic. I'm a budding C++ programmer with an interest in 6502 assembly, and coincidentally I've been thinking of learning ARM assembly too. I would love to see this come into fruition, even though I'm new haha.
  19. This is excellent There's something mysterious about prototypes that makes them so enthralling.
