  1. I would also like to see rapper on the 7800 anbx saw this article http://www.kmjn.org/notes/tapper_videogame_patent.html
  2. Transaction was perfect Joystick was awesome Robotron experience with twin sticks....wow.... you will not regret the purchase
  3. Whoa what!!! After just getting to level 4 you turn it into a speedrun!!! You are just cruel Rasmus...just cruel!!!
  4. I got to level 3 with a score of 7446 The music is perfect, a bouncy tune for a bouncy game this game has the perfect combination of a fun theme and also a just one more go pull it has that fun frustration of getting so close you just have to try again! nice work and level 4 will be miine...oh yes it will be mine :-)
  5. Only just spotted this fbForth 2.0: A File-Based Cartridge Implementation of TI Forth Paperback – August 20, 2017 Source: https://www.amazon.com/fbForth-2-0-File-Based-Cartridge-Implementation/dp/1973932679/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1534126695&sr=1-1&keywords=lee+stewart
  6. Seemed to have spent quite a few happy hours on the Atari 7800 with an Edladdin Dual controller -wow Suprise of the weekend was Water Ski - wow i sunk some time into this one and got to thinking a remake would be cool with dual joysticks, one for the boat and one for the skier Either way a fun game but not easy. Robotron - of course, what the Edladdin was made for - finally broke my level 10 nemesis and got to level 22! - woohoo!!! Winter games - still like the biathlon event and trying to shoot the targets Naturally had to play scramble for the 7800 and finally on the 2600 side Stay Frosty2 Thrust Juno first WOW what an awesome console!!!
  7. One word quality I am not the guy who spends time and dollars buying expensive joysticks but as a long time Robotron fan an edladdin dual controller was on the cards I liked that I could customize button colors etc and get that real arcade feel. I would buy another Edladdin product without hesitation. Robotron on 7800 with edladdin is simply awesome. Yes they are not cheap but it enhances the gameplay so well it is worth the dollars spent.
  8. Re RC 1-8 I am seeing many occurrences of bullets going straight through enemies playing on latest class 99 game is excellent
  9. Wouldn't it be fun to learn to use Forth on the TI99 then take some of that knowledge to the latest computing platforms....now you can.. www.8th-dev.com

  11. Great game difficulty seems about right...not to hard to say forget it but hard enough to make it ok just one more try worthy :-)
  12. or rather the 35th Anniversary of the Jupter Ace manual was re-published in August 2017, thought the forthies on this group might want to snag a copy https://www.amazon.com/Jupiter-ACE-Manual-Anniversary-Programming/dp/1785387294/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1513131648&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=stephen+vickers+forth
  13. Nope your right, Despite the magic of forth which is your words exist at the same level in forth no matter what you do you have to build your words on the original dictionary so there is an implied hierarchy so the pyramid is correct as it was :-)
  14. I like the pyramid with one comment shouldn't Forth Language Words and Your Program's words be on the same level?
