  1. So I'm very new to this community, and I can't really find much information concerning this, so here goes: When will Gradius be available to buy again? Also, will it every be possible to buy the Rom (or pack of roms) the same way that CollectorVision does? Again, just a question, not trying to enrage anyone here. From what I've been able to see, roms are a no no here, but I can't really find out why. Thank you for your patience.
  2. I forgot to thank you guys for your help! Thanks @Serguei2 , thanks @Mike Harris !
  3. Thank you very much, enthusi!
  4. @enthusi Do you plan on releasing the rom?
  5. So I'm interested in learning how to program for the ColecoVision, but I can't find any good guide/walkthrough on how to do so. Can anyone please help me? I also can't find a good and active ColecoVision community/forum to join. So if someone can help with that too, it would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Is the ROM for this going to be released, or is it going to be a cartridge only game? I would love to be able to play this.
  7. Is the game already completely programmed, or is it still in the works?
  8. Is there something like this, but as a downloadable program? Like, what do other people use?
  9. Oh cool, is this a rougelike of sorts? If not, what genre is it?
  10. Hey guys, question What do people use to develop pixel art for the 2600? I would think other normal pixel art programs, but each pixel in the 2600 looks more like a rectangle than an actual square. What do you guys recommend me?
  11. What do you mean? Why do you say that? Can you link me to some of the FPGA cores? That sounds interesting. As for whether they output control signals, I don't know, haven't heard much about Atari VCS FPGA clones. What do you mean by that? I'm pretty sure that the case is not at fault here, if anything it's the lack of a manual, whether printed or in PDF form. Can you show me what it is that your referring to when you wrote this? If all the information is available, then it shouldn't really be so hard to make a perfect clone of it. Manufacturing aside, it would just be a matter of how much time your willing to spend in gathering all the information needed.
  12. GTIA chip? Don't you mean the TIA chip? I looked into the GTIA chip, and that was something used for the Atari 8bit computers and the Atari 5200. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CTIA_and_GTIA#2600_and_TIA https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/Atari+2600+Teardown/3541
  13. What exactly is missing from our knowledge of the Atari VCS/2600's hardware that prevents us from making a perfect hardware clone of it? I've looked around, and apparently there's already a lot of information, and even hand-drawn schematics, on the TIA custom chip. What else is there missing?
  14. Hey, guys. I'm a beginner Atari programmer and I'm trying to go through Andrew Davie's book 2600 Programming for Newbies. I downloaded the dasm assembler from https://sourceforge.net/projects/dasm-dillon/, and i put the vcs.h and the macro.h file within the directory that the dasm.exe file is located. However, when I drag a file named testing1.asm to the dasm.exe file to compile it, i get a file called a.out that has nothing inside of it instead of a .bin file. What am I doing wrong? Below is what is written in the testing1.asm file. processor 6502 include "vcs.h" include "macro.h" SEG ORG $F000 Reset StartOfFrame ; Start of vertical blank processing lda #0 sta VBLANK lda #2 sta VSYNC ; 3 scanlines of VSYNCH signal... sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC lda #0 sta VSYNC ; 37 scanlines of vertical blank... sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC ; 192 scanlines of picture... ldx #0 REPEAT 192 ; scanlines inx stx COLUBK sta WSYNC REPEND lda #%01000010 sta VBLANK ; end of screen - enter blanking ; 30 scanlines of overscan... sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC sta WSYNC jmp StartOfFrame ORG $FFFA .word Reset ; NMI .word Reset ; RESET .word Reset ; IRQ END
