  1. Does anyone know the programming behind Entombed's maze generation? Just curious.

  2. February would be warm, they said. Never trust meteorologists, a broken clock is right twice a day but meteorologists are never right.

      And yet a groundhog can always predict the coming winter with such accuracy...go figure!

    2. Atariperson23


      If I was a meteorologist, I would just say "the temperature is between -200 and 200 degrees" so no one would accuse me of being inaccurate

  3. Fix all 8 compiling errors, compile again.

      ah yes; the dreaded semicolon.

      @DragonGrafx-16 I am so going to post that on our work chat.

  4. Yeah at the time it came out a lot of people didn't complain that much about the inaccuracy of Pac-Man. I found it tolerable. It's not one of the worst games ever, or even on the atari 2600... not by a long shot
  5. My advice for you is to ask other people here how much you sell it for. That way other people don't get angry and you can still profit a lot from the cartridge.
  6. Steven Spielberg told Warshaw he could just do something similar to Pac-Man...
  7. "Excuse me, there's some annoying marks on my cartridge and it makes it look very unsatisfying. May I please have a refund?'
  8. Genuine question:

    Why do some 2600 collectors want pirate or label variation carts? You can get the real cartridge for much cheaper.

    1. Rogerpoco


      Already have the "real deal", and tho there are thousands, there are still only "so many" different carts out there.

      So, like the Everest thing-"Because they are there".

      Collectors collect, it's really, REALLY a ridiculous thing, and I'd love to bag on people for doing so, but...

      The bug bit me several years ago, lol, I'm now one of those crazy people, "happy accident".

      Gotta collect 'em all!  

  9. just wondering how does this thing exactly work?
  10. What's better, the 2600 or Intellivision, and why?

      His answer made me spit out my drink.

      I was wondering why the O/P posted such an odd question, and then I saw this in his profile: InterestsMaple Leafs fan.

      Ohhh...now I understand...
    4. Atariperson23


      Yeah I like the Maple Leafs, even though they're the dumpster fire of the NHL. 

  11. Is it possible for the Atari 2600 to save your high scores after you turn it off?

      Yeah, the sentence was a little garbled. My bad.

    3. Keatah


      All this wasted bandwidth because no one can understand the intent of the question? Ridiculous.


    4. CPUWIZ


      It's not about understanding, it is about encouraging people to think, before they type.  The internet is full of garbage sentences and people always say "Well, you know what I mean.".  That is the wrong approach and you will turn into a full on mouth breather over time.

  12. Gravitar must be the hardest game on the 2600.

  13. I think it means their games have better graphics than their competitors (Atari, Imagic, Coleco) which wasn't really true but was good advertising.
  14. Hi guys, just wanted to share my highscore of 33 on Freeway, played via Atarimania, game 1A. Couldn't beat it yet but stay tuned.
