  1. I think Ninjish Guy in a Lo Res World captures a lot of the ethos that I was thinking of when I made this so many years ago. Sometime in the early 2000s someone made an article and a series of accompanying Flash games that boiled down a lot of game mechanics to just the most minimalist lo res graphics and often needing only a single button. That resonated with me. I'm glad to see a lot of these minimalist games did get completed on the 2600. A lot more is still possible and it would be cool to see a 4 level version of Mega Man 2600.
  2. How do you bitbang on a Pokey. Can you use it as a 1 bit I/O to control a transistor for example. Turn on. Turn off. I understand the logic level is 4V on and 0 V off which falls into TTL logic spec. Just wondering how to take control of ensuring it goes true and false without worrying about it inserting start bits and stop bits.
  3. IKR? I read my posts and was - I used to know 2600 stuff? LOL This was 15 years ago... another short 5 years and it will have been 20 years! which is about how long from 2006 I originally had a 2600...
  4. Yeah the "let alone any", is what I what I could have maybe predicted but there's no way in hell I'd imagine carts with tiny supercomputers inside.
  5. I'm pretty sure this was later surfaced in this very long thread but appreciate your contribution!
  6. That was an amazing night. I miss those...
  7. Hey CPUWiz. Before you peace out I want to tell you and everyone how much I appreciated your dedicated help when I was on a tight deadline to get my Mega Man demo out all those years ago. You really came through with coding advice and boards for me and a lot of good stories. Thanks so much.
  8. C? ARM? Chris you big fat cheater. I love it! Great job. It's fantastic.

    That is fantastic to hear! Really!
  11. yeah, if you check out the video in the previous comment they get to the boss for example.
  12. Keep it arcade perfect, ignore the people who want color. If they want it original they can just tape cellophane to their TV.
  13. There was a post today on fb by Graham Toal with a pattern to cut a cartridge box with a vinyl cutter. "Input file for the "Make the cut" vinyl cutter program, to create a box very similar in size to the standard Vectrex game box containing a cartridge, manual and space-filling insert. Details on exactly how to make a box will be posted as a separate article. Cut files in other formats may follow. Created for 17x11 in paper or larger (to the limit of what a wide format inkjet printer can handle)." https://www.facebook.com/groups/vectrex/permalink/1310735169136857/
