    I played my first game system, an original pong units in the early 80s and got my parents 2600 4 switch 2600 when I was about 12. That sparked my interest in video games and I was an addicted youth. Systems I have owned over the years include: NES, SNES, Game boy Color, GBA, DS, 3DS, Virtuaboy, N64, Gamecube, Wii, Sega Genesis, Sega Saturn, Sega Dreamcast, 32X, SegaCD, PlayStation 1&2, Atari Jaguar/CD, Commodore Vic 20 and 64 and various other ones.
  • Currently Playing
    Got a 2600 for Christmas '18 with Harmony cart and I'm enjoying the homebrew scene and the classics.
  • Playing Next
    Looking to get maybe a 7800 in the near future.

  1. @johnnywc Usually makes his games lately as 32K and uses CDFJ. John from what I remember likes keeping games at no more than 32K because he likes the constrains of working within a given limitation. He does have some older games that are only 16k like LadyBug and Caverns of Mars. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  2. The only problem I have with fine besides small caps it H,M and N look similar. I know it's limitations of the system though. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  3. They all look good to me, not particularly fond of the small caps. I think I like Trichotomic-12 most of all but I'm not set on it. I change mine from time to time to spice it up some. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  4. New update vastly improves navigation speed and keyboard. Love it guys great work.
  5. Didn't know where to put this but I guess here is a good enough place to ask the question. I see with the new 36 character kernel shown on zph navigation up and down seems smoother than it does on plus cart. Also when I put in something like a WiFi password the pause between each character being selected is pretty good. Didn't know if when you implement this will the menu and keyboard get any quicker. I would love someday if the keyboard would be shown full qwerty and your can select each letter without a page reload, may be system limitations I'm sure no matter how crafty you get with programing tricks.
  6. Retro games have become so popular indie software companies make a bunch every year for Steam. Someone had the forethought to make retro gaming stores, which are hard to find in my area but I make it work. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  7. The Atari was my very first game system, owned by my parents before I even knew what it was and handed down to my brother and I as we got older (86-87). I played the system a lot, even after I owned the Vic 20 and then the C64, I still had fun with the old 2600. Fast forward to today and I play playstation, xbox games etc and the realism is crazy as well as the level of gore involved in some games. Atari games remind me not only of simpler times when it comes to being care free as a kid, no internet etc but of gaming in general. I think prefer games that lack realism because they focus on the simplicity of game dynamics. Players when they died did so with a blip and less fanfare of today. Violence is there with the classic games but death in pixels is so different than today. Space ships may explode, characters dying, things being eaten but only for you to hit the button again to attempt to reach your next high score. I appreciate the 2600 for the lack of gore, lack of over the top fan fare. I can play a game for 15 mins or 2 hours and both have the same result. Yes I enjoy a good RPG and spend 3 hours and not realize they had elapsed but the love of being able to pick it up and play it will keep me coming back decades to come. Games of yesterday are a struggle for players of today's generation, maybe I'm wrong. I feel they need a continual dopamine hit of loot boxes, save/check points and engaging story line to get me to enjoy some game time. Arcade games had a level of difficulty which was designed to feed the machines and keep the customers coming back to the arcade. That methodology doesn't work with today like it in yesteryear. Anyone else feel this way? Not just a simpler time but a simpler method of gaming. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  8. Couldn't help [email protected] I just bought your original Lady Bug for my Atari. Don't know why I hadn't played this game more before now. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  9. After revisiting your previous version of Lady Bug (played it a few times here and there), I can see the differences. Lady Bug 2006 was not bad and is an excellent game, I can see where your able to add some more bells and whistles to make it closer to the arcade than the original. Thanks to CDFJ you can coax a little more out of the old hardware huh. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  10. Just want to [email protected] that there is something about your ports that I truly enjoy over the arcade verisons. I've played a lot of these in the arcade and then play them via CoinOps on my XBox. Whether it's WOW, Galagon or any of your other titles; the 2600 ports are excellent and are always a choice for me over they're arcade counterparts. Awesome work buddy Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  11. Picked up a Trooper 2 used from a retro gaming store. Works as advertised but feels kind of mushy in the movement but responsive. Not using dome switches it makes it feel like a woreout cx40. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks for letting us play along. I have a love hate relationship with this game. It's such an awesome and simplistic game and yet gets me so frustrated. I'm learning to master the basics and keep pushing myself for a higher and higher score. My 150,000 is nothing compared to some but this game commands respect. [email protected] for making a game that's as fun to play. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  13. Got the software working finally, downloaded another fresh copy of the 32bit and 64bit Visual packages and uninstalled and reinstalled the Harmony software and it worked. I ran through flashing and stuff with the bios and went smoothly. Tested a few games out from different bank switching types and didn't see any issues. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  14. Still a no go, I have used two different pcs with windows 10 and installed the Visual C++ libraries required and still getting the error messages asking for required dll's. I'm stumped Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  15. Does anyone know if the Hyperkin Ranger Adapter works with standard Atari controllers as well as the Ranger? Will this work like a two port quadtari? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
