  1. Salzburg-Regular and Salzburg-Bold along with HammerFat will get you that early Atari computer (and VCS) cart/packaging look...
  2. My 800XL/130XE were my main computer from '88-'97, and I know that any of the disks I made with stuff I'd like to recover (programs written, local user group disks, BBS logs, etc) are going to be from one of the stock 1050's I had... Anyways, I'm pretty sure that early on when stuff like the Catweasel board came out, it could only handle Atari 8-bit 'Single Density' disks, but I can't really find any up-to-date compatibility info on something fancy like the Kryoflux/SC Pro/etc. I'm guessing that since these modern options are just dumping at such a low level, it's up to whatever you use to convert-that-data-to-the-resulting-computer-format's-disk-image if a certain density/layout is 'supported', right? ...I remember a utility or two for DOS on the PC that could read disks on a PC drive, but I'm pretty sure that was limited to either single density or double density, I forget 😕
  3. Missed opportunity to use 'Katamatari'
  4. Does anyone know if there's a set of scanned issues of Atari Interface (Magazine) or Current Notes out there? I'm not looking to get a hold of them or anything...it's just that in my finally-getting-around-to-trimming-down-my-old-computer-stuff sorting, I found my box of miscellaneous Atari 8-bit (and ST)-related mags with mainly the above titles, and I'm wondering if I should bother sending them to somebody that'd want to deal with them, or if I should just trash them. When I got them originally (from someone else's collection in like ~'94) they weren't in the best of shape (missing covers, stains, etc)...and being badly stored in an outside storage unit for 15 years hasn't helped their condition (some water damage, etc), so that is why the trashing-the-whole-lot option comes up :/
  5. You might be thinking of Rally-B (Rally-X-ish) that came with an old bAtari BASIC version. I attached the copy that's been sitting in my archive dir RallyB.bas

    Faceball 2600

    The Atari 8-bit version could be linked via SIO cables. When I saw it in action back around `95 at an Atari club meeting, I'm pretty sure to get it to run w/just one player, they had to short 2 pins on the open end of the SIO cable with a paperclip :/
  7. Yep, high scores save fine. (...is there another way to show the high score table other than playing & losing a game? )
  8. There might be something wacky with the header on this. It's valid according to GBATA, but NO$GBA whines about a value at 0xB2. My kludge to get it to work on my EZ-Flash 3in1 was just replacing 0xB0-0xBF with 16 bytes from an already-working-on-my-setup homebrew ROM...and NO$GBA stopped whining too. :/
  9. Nice take on the 'paratrooper game' type ...the randomness needs fixing though. At the moment, you can start a new game, wait for the first paratrooper to fall a little bit, then hold Left without letting up and you'll eventually win the game
  10. A 2600 game you were thinking of is probably Cosmic Ark
  11. I'm pretty sure it's David Galloway's work.
  12. A bBASIC 1.0 change that could make a nice addition to your editor would be for handling multi-colored Players (and/or more animation frames) I've always been a fan of how http://alienbill.com/2600/playerpalnext.html handles this sort of thing, even though coloring breaks when you copy/paste/clear the drawing area
  13. Those shots are amazing ...Candy, shmandy!
