      XP is a great version of Windows to run in VirtualBox. It's small and fast and has a relatively low memory footprint.

  3. I'm running v1.01dreveng38 so I guess not. I'll test it later this week.
  4. Spring, green is here but the warm Isn't. :(

      You got that right. Normally where I live the average high is 11C and low is about 5c. Yesterday the low was actually 0 with a high of 7c. Been like that for a while now. Where is global warming when you need it?

  7. AI is getting smarter and smarterby the minute. The government should shut them down to prevent a robot apocolypse.

      In the cyberpunk novels, the AIs have "self-restraint" routines to keep them from getting out of hand. But the hackers in the same stories crack them so that also has to be addressed as well. Alexa's not at the same level as SHODAN of course, but best be prepared anyway.

      I hadn't heard the details of that story, but it seems that it too was overblown. Can't say I'm surprised.

  10. When I try to use this command "set kernel_options player1colors playercolors pfheights background" and define "pfcolors:" all it does is shoot out this error: 2600 Basic compilation failed! LINE --> pfcolors: --VERBOSE ERROR MESSAGE -- batari Basic v1.01dreveng38 (C)2005-2016 (15): PFcolors kernel option not set So I tried adding pfcolors to the end and all I get is this: default.bas default.bas.bin
  11. What pins can I output to in the joystic port

    1. CPUWIZ

      CPUWIZ

      2600 / 7800, all but the 5V and GND lines can be in or out.

    2. gauauu

      Is there a document somewhere that describes using INPT0-INPT5 as outputs? I've used SWACNT to set SWCHA as output, but I couldn't find a way to set INPT0-5 as output. Thanks!

      Was wandering the same thing.

  12. Are the joystick ports on the 2600 read only or can you output data through them?

      Sweet! I'm just wandering because I'm thinking of custom rumble controlers

      You mean wondering, right? :P

  13. I searched for an hour to figure out how to scroll the playfield I the bB DPC+ kernel and found nothing helpful. Any tips/ideas?

    1. Trip2018

      Trip2018

      Sorry I should've been more specific. I'mTrying to get horizontal scrolling

    2. Random Terrain

      Random Terrain

      RevEng added coarse vertical scrolling to the DPC+ kernel back when he had the time to work on batari Basic. There is no horizontal DPC+ scrolling at this time. Someone might come along and start working on batari Basic again and give us all kinds of goodies. Until then, we're lucky that we have vertical scrolling.

    3. Trip2018

      Trip2018

      I guess I'll stick to the standard kernel.

      It depends on the 5th grader.

      Tacos, then some play time on the switch. Burritos, then some time with the PS4. Top off the evening with quesadillas and the PC.

    3. MrMaddog

      MrMaddog

      Atari games on the Switch...why not both?

  18. If atari still sold the 2600 and made games.

    1. RockyRaccoon

      RockyRaccoon

      In order to turn off the flicker on ghosts, please pay 10 Atari points!

    2. DeathAdderSF

      DeathAdderSF

      "Good Luck Charlie Brown" would STILL be unreleased.

    3. MrMaddog

      MrMaddog

      They should sell a mini version with lots of games built in that you just plug in the TV and...oh nevermind.

    2. MrMaddog

      MrMaddog

      And you forgot to call it the NINTENDO Game Boy Advance, oh boy I'm so mad now!!!!

    3. Skippy B. Coyote

      Skippy B. Coyote

      Yeah, yeah. I know I was probably being overly critical, it's just my biggest retro gaming pet peeve when people call the Game Boy a "gameboy". =P

  20. Do you think SEGA will ever make a good modern sonic game right now.

    1. zylon

      Last thing they did that I liked was the XBL Sonic 4. :)

    2. ClassicGMR

      ClassicGMR

  21. How many of you got an atari 2600 when you were eleven, it was your first cosole that wasn't edutaiment and you were born in the 2000's?

    1. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      I got PONG as a present before Atari too!

    2. save2600

      save2600

      Just wasn't known as "edutainment" then. Didn't hear that phrase until the 90's probably. Got a Radio Shack pong unit called TV Scoreboard (came with a light gun even) the Christmas before I "finally" got an Atari 2600.

  22. when I asked "What's your highest score on asteroids?" I meant the vcs version (I forgot about the other platforms :P).

    1. digdugnate

      digdugnate

      hehe for the 'default' vcs game, it's a rollover :) i got bored i think another 30k in.

    2. Eltigro

      Eltigro

      Game one I think I've rolled the score over three or four times before I just stopped... rarely getting below 7 ships in reserve. Not bragging, it's just as is said above, game 1 is a cakewalk compared to other versions. There was an Asteroids week on the 2600 High Score Club one week...

  23. What's your highest score on asteroids? Mine is 100,609 (no that is not a misprint)

    1. Rick Dangerous
    2. ClassicGMR

      i havent played the arcade version in a long time so i can't remember. :) i did roll over the VCS version about a month ago.
