      There is probably a better way to give a status update.  Maybe only use "Optimization" twice.  That should still work.

      haha yes! There is irony in showing the same message 3 times.

  7. Woohoo! My arm code is finally compiling correctly after 2 weeks of linker hell. 

  8. Hmm, my latest idea didn't work to it's original intended extent. No worries, I have offered a sacrifice of functionality to the Atari Gods.

  9. What a difference it would have made if the 6502 had just one more general purpose register.

      I have parts for 3 or 4, but printing shells will depend on my printer feeling up to the task.

      Essentially, the print surface is now a bit dodgy so the texturing might be a bit off.

      Hi Andrew and Al_Nafuur,


      Sorry for the late reply. That's great iit could come sooner. If the case holds together OK that is fine. If the fascia is a bit off, that's OK. I'll let you decide what's the best way to send it.




  13. Early to bed, and early to rise...Makes a 2600 coder miss out on some dev time. 

  14. Studying Room of Doom's disassembly

    1. BydoEmpire


      I always wanted that game based on a review, but never saw it in a store back in the day nor in the wild since.

    2. MarcoJ


      It's an amazing game. Only found out about last week. Never even heard of it. 

    3. DoctorSpuds


      Great game. Mines of Minos might also be worth your time if it hasn't popped up on your radar yet.

  15. Only 20 to go till my Dragonfly is ready!

    1. GoldLeader


      WOOOHOOO!  They're Awesome!!

  16. Lookup tables save the day yet again!

      There is no problem that cannot be solved by adding a lookup table, except for too many lookup tables.
