  1. I have a weird issue. When 2 sprites occupy the same scanline the sprite stretches. Here is when they are on different scanlines, notice they don't stretch Any ideas why this is happening?
  2. Sorry I forgot to update that. The latest version is available on the official site. You can also click here to access the game page which has a link to the latest source code and hosted demo. Not much has changed since it has been a crazy year. You can press fire and you'll be able to move the pet around a bit. It was supposed to be a feeding type game where you moved the pet towards the food but, I haven't really gotten around to finish the coding.

  5. Hi, I am starting a new Virtual Pet homebrew, and would like to get everyone's input. So far I have gotten the pet sprite to appear on screen. Not sure what to work on next so feel free to let me know. I was going to animate the sprite bouncing left and right like the Tamagatchi pets. Binaries vpet.bin Updates 11-15-2021: Added bouncing effect to the pet similar to Tamagotch pets. Uploaded first binrary
  6. The idea was that each player 1 would insert their own savekey into each port. A special “match” cart would read the data from each savekey and and simulate a fight using it. I don’t know how else to describe it. 🤔
  7. Can the AtariVox/AtariVox+ and SaveKey be plugged into the first controller port or is it only supported on the 2nd controller port? Also can 2 AtariVox/AtariVox+'s and/or SaveKey's be used at the same time?
  8. Here is Release Candidate 1 for stabilizing the ducks speed a bit. Let me know what your thoughts. duckgame.bin
  9. Their x and y velocity is set to the lowest it can go, 1. I will try to fix this in the next update.
  10. Sorry got a bit sidetracked by the Superbowl. I will try to upload the ROM to the thread tomorrow. UPDATE: Attached rom duckgame.bin
  11. WIP ● Mallard Season (16K) by @Mallard Games Please move, I am still working on this.
  12. Can you see this? UPDATE: There is no option to set it public/private. @Albert help!
  13. 1) I have no clue why you can't acess it, I have no issues. @Albert 2) I plan on adding Atari Light Gun support latter on once I get the basics going.
