  1. You already have Cosmic Hunter? I have a duplicate of it.
  2. I have the internet again...for now. I didn't have it all of Wednesday and part of Tuesday. So while I have the chance to, I'd like to say if I go away for a few days, it's probably because my stupid internet has gone down. I thought I was going to have to call the stupid internet provider, and I probably will next time it goes down for a few days. It's gotten really stupid.
  3. If there's one thing the Jaguar needs, it needs more 2d platformers. While my internet was down all of yesterday and half of this morning, I had more than enough time to work on it. Once you get past the first hole, there's nothing there. You can download what I have at the onion ring of fate website I tried this on my Skunkboard. I tinkered with trying to make a sound effect for jumping, but it made the background music a little "shaky" so there isn't any jumping sound effect.
  4. Changed some Shooting Gallery stuff to make it more like the Channel F version. I made the first number be the number of hits and the second number the number of shots fired. the one on the left is my version and the one on the right is Channel F. It's still 99 seconds, but not 120 seconds like the Channel F version. Mine doesn't display the timer, though. press_fire_2021september14.bin
  5. Added a few things to Shooting Gallery: You can no longer hold down the button and have it spew out bullets. Missed shot results in -1 point. Added timer in the game because I doubt it's possible for someone to score more than 99 points. When it gets to 0 the game ends. Different game ending sound And a few things in Stac-King: Found and fixed a bug pertaining to new screen sfx. Made the speed of the last block faster. press_fire_2021september13.bin
  6. I was laying in bed trying to go to sleep when suddenly I now have to blow my nose every 30 seconds or so. I don't know why, but it's angering me.

      Last night when I lay in bed, I heard a strange, unevenly clicking noise from somewhere. I contemplated getting up to investigate but went to sleep. Today I heard the click again, but still not sure what causes the sound. I have no electronic devices standby or anything mechanical that could cause the noise.

  7. After a few months, I thought of another game you can play with just the fire button. This also possibly marks the first time someone tried to port a Channel F game to the Atari 2600. The game is Shooting Gallery. I was playing this and thought "Gee, all this game uses is the fire button," which led to this. It's the fifth game in the menu. You get 99 seconds to shoot as many blue squares as you possibly can. The gun (line) indicates which way the bullet will travel once it is shot. I also changed some colors around. Let me know what you think. Black score - stac-king gray score - Bomber Pilot Green score - Yum! purple score - Runny Nose light blue score - Shooting Gallery press_fire_2021september12.bin
  8. Try adding this to the code: pfhline 0 9 31 on. That should give you a line stretching from the end of the right of PF0 to the left of the other PF0.
  9. You could just do if ballx>130 then goto balldisappears
  10. I have three Odyssey² games just sitting here. I prefer they not clutter my space like it has been. They are: Showdown in 2100 A.D. Speedway/Spin-Out/Cryptologic Blockout/Breakdown Because they are common titles, they're perfect for repurposing and making into homebrew carts, or, if you're just getting into Odyssey², here's three titles for your collection. Anyway, if you're interested, PM me. All you pay is shipping.
  11. I forgot I had this and I wanted to share it with you: Here are some TV spots of Game Boy games.
  12. Seven hours without internet is a really long time.

  13. Here's a sneak preview of the very first Wacky Calendar for October 2021. As you can see, I need to finish the rest of it and color it by September 30. This was just a test to see if it could come out good. I was using a whole bunch of small print and drawings for this, so I wanted to see if I could make it look good when I scanned and colored it. After a multitude of tests to see what could be done with Photoshop, I think I have the magic formula here. I'm half way done. I have an idea for Halloween. It's a special Halloween since it falls on a half calendar day this year. This is the type of stuff I do when I get extremely bored. That and work on video games for ancient consoles I just happen to have. I'm still plugging away at Jack and the Beanstalk for the Odyssey 2. I only got like 6 hours of sleep last night. I think I'll nap on the couch if I'm not really hot.
  14. Trying to fix some rather mean vicious bugs in JatB. I think it has to do with the way I set up bankswitching. I tested it myself and I think I found out what the problem was and I hope I fixed it. What I did was change the level number for down the beanstalk checking from 4 to 5 like it should be. At least I think I fixed the bug where it sends you to a place off the vine if a bat hits you. I foumd a bug pertaining to the down movement of the castle, when you go down into a new room and are touching the right or left wall, it moves you up until you aren't touching it any more. But since this doesn't make you stuck in the wall, and I have no idea how to fix it, I'll have to let it be this way. I'm hoping this can be finished one day so I can release it. Meanwhile I have begun work on my comics nobody reads again. Something else to pass the time until I die. I also re-invented the wacky calendar. This will be a monthly thing on my blog where I post a wacky calendar for that month. What inspired me was this old magazine the cable channel Nickelodeon made and in it there was a thing similar to what I'm working on. Right now I'm ready to work on October 13. This is an example of my comic and drawing style. Expect stuff like this on my wacky calendar for October 2021.
