    I finally got a logitech controller for a reasonable price, but quickly found out how useless the analogue stick is due to there not being enough travel. ...

     

    Have to say I guess I use the D-Pad a lot of the time.  But having tinkered with the Wingman controller I could appreciate this!

     

    And hope my fellow Nuon users had a great Thanks Giving!

    A8 Star Raiders II looked gorgeous 😍, but it wasn't Star Raiders when you sat and played it, name only. 

     

    Now you did see the lost Star Raiders II that was found a few years ago?   That was a lot more like the original Star Raiders with some fun things added... like visiting planets and bombing Cylon bases.  Great stuff.

  3. Joust for the ST is amazing.  When CJ did the port of it to the Jaguar we found that all it needed was a good sound set.  The best mix is the Atari ST Joust and the Atari Lynx Joust sound in my humble opinion.

     

    Moon Patrol CJ also ported to the ST.  It looks stunning.  Play-wise it is a little different, but not bad.   The front cannon shoots missiles instead of energy bursts.   And generally you fire that forward and it flies onward and does it's own thing.   Good for taking out a boulder on the other side of a crater you are about to jump.  Again, not bad, just a bit different.

     

    Star Raiders ST, the "Speed of light: 186,000 miles per second is not a suggestion it's the law"   It's a fun enough game.  Like Star Raiders II on the Atari 8-bit it did not have the 360 degree vectors and target tracking like original Star Raiders.

     

    Would be interesting to see 8-bit Star Raiders ported to the ST but you know, it was designed to play on the strengths of the 8-bit chip set so no matter what it would not be the same.

    Have you unloaded all of this yet? 

     

    There were some things I was not able to give away at the Atari show in September, but I am setting those aside for the next show whenever that is.  And I might have some things to sell too?   Not sure.

    Received the game in the mail today.  Thanks Carl!!  Now I just hope my CD player still works.  

    Checked my mail yesterday, which the mailbox is now an hour from where I live since I just moved.

     

    Wasn't there yesterday, guess I get to wait a week before I get to hear the soundtrack (which was the main reason I bought the all in one pack)

     

    Looking forward to it.

    @doctorclu How many times have you been Bubsy for Halloween?

     

    Never for Halloween.  I know, I'm shocked too.

     

    It has been cool the Bubsy advertisements that Accolade did for Bubsy for the last two games for Halloween.

    For Woolies Strike Back they did this one...

     

     

    For Paws on Fire they featured this one with all the playable characters on Twitter...

    It is obvious the promo people for Bubsy were big Marvel fans as he keeps dressing in Marvel costumes ...

  7. Gotten in about a game a month lately.  The scores below were made since I got the Game Drive.   Bubsy doesn't have numbers for the high score, much like Joust I found out last night, so I use letters for numbers.

     

    I = 1

    Z = 2

    E = 3

    F = 4

    S = 5

    G = 6

    L = 7

    B = 8

    P = 9

     

    Just moved, but for the first time since the move in I zipped through a game.   Having played Bubsy here, it is officially now home.  :D

    Sorry to be silent after the meet-up but I left town the next morning for about 9 days and am still catching up! Quick re-cap.... (clip)

     

    Thanks to everyone who made this a special night and looking forward to the next one.

    -John

     

    That was a wonderful event John and everyone!

     

    Came with perfect timing for me as I looked to regift things before moving.   That said, might have some more freebies next meeting, but nothing like this time.

    Covid really reset me, and I didn't realize how much more isolated I had been for the last two years, even more than usual!

     

    I ran into @x=usr(1536) outside the museum, and it genuinely took me a moment to realize:

     

    (1) somebody was talking to me

    (2) I was supposed to say something back. 

     

    So yeah, sorry about that. ;) 

     

    -THom

     

     

     

     

    The meeting was a nice oasis of seeing people in a desert of isolation.

     

    Can totally relate to the awkwardness.  :)   Think we all can.

    Will take that HeadStart Explorer if you change your mind about shipping :) 

    So I was looking at the Headstart this morning.  Some fun pictures for everyone else...

    Monitor all boxed up and ready to go...

    20210911_083522.thumb.jpg.c1c9119e0c35f88f751fcce57074c750.jpg

     

    Has this cool Gui that was shown in this channel..

     

     

    And here is a quick video I made of the Headstart.   It was already quite yellowed when I saved it from the garbage in my town..

     

     

    Cool computer though.   Also I found a more regular PC looking Headstart and saved the hard drive and driver board from it.   I wondered if I would get a hard drive working in the Headstart Explorer as it looks like it has a bay for it.

    I had a bunch of other cards and items that may or may not be important.  Some came from the other Headstart and others might just be from other friend's computers of that time.  You are welcome to look through these and let me know if any look interesting.  If not, e-cycle time.

    I’m ready to pay for shipping! I’m all set on the monitor, but I will take it off your hands if its a deciding factor. 
     

    (I hope my response made it in time).

    Ok, a lot has been e-cycled, but not the G4.   PM me an address and we'll get that ready for shipping.
