  1. The official Android port of the Atari800 open source emulator has returned to Google play (Android market) with a new name: Colleen. https://play.google....e=search_result
  2. Hi All, SIO2BT project consist of hardware and software related to the wireless Bluetooth communication between the 8-bit Atari computers and emulated SIO devices. The Android SIO2BT App can be downloaded at Google Play. And the link to the PC Software and documentation. SIO2BT project won the first price in the ABBUC competition 2014. This year I extended the scope of the project to support a new Networking Device (coming soon as an Android App software update). To learn more, the original thread is here. In this thread you may express your interest in the hardware (I will send you a PM with details). I recently got some SIO plugs, so I can offer you 2 variants: - SIO2BT as a KIT (can be easiliy installed inside the ATARI computer) for 20€ - SIO2BT in a SIO plug for 30€ Shipping costs (worldwide) are 6€. For convenience I uploaded the current version of the manual Sio2BT Manual.pdf. Please note: - you can't use SIO2BT with stock Atari 800/400 (Incognito board or any other OS switch is required) - you can use SIO2BT with stock ATARI XL/XE, but some games/programs may not work (OS patch is recommended for best compatibility) I will maintain an ordering list to keep you up to date.
  3. Hi guys. We have released a very big update do the web-based emulator Javatari. http://javatari.org It now has a new interface designed for mobile devices with touch-screen controls. Finally run Atari 2600 games on your iPhone/iPad! :-) Also, it can be installed on the device as a WebApp, then you can launch it directly through the app icon. In this mode it also works when offline! Several advancements were brought from the WebMSX project (http://webmsx.org). You can very easily put games on your own page, or show games running in the web with a single link to the Javatari page. Just pass the ROM URL address... Please refer to the project homepage for the docs and examples: https://github.com/ppeccin/javatari.js Some images on an iPhone6: Enjoy! Paulo
  4. I don't know anything about android except than I'm not a 'smartphone person.' Lately I've been seeing inexpensive little android game systems like this one and am wondering how it all works and what I should be looking out for when selecting a unit. Raft of questions: Does anybody have a similar device and do they work well? How does button support work? Do they map to the screen? This is an android 2.3 device--is that good or bad? How will I get games onto this device? I'm assuming phone networks have handy app stores, and this unit probably won't. What can I look forward to as far as functionality and games that will really blow my socks off? (I have angry birds on my psp and think it's awful) Are there any stellar 4x strategy, turn-based squad strategy, space trading/combat, or sim-ish racing games to look forward to?
  5. Hello, guys! I finished work on the Atari Lynx emulator for Android. aLynx - Atari Lynx emulator for Android OS 2.1 and higher. aLynx supports on-screen keyboard, sound output, OpenGL rendering, load/save games states. Link on a Google play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.blogspot.rock88dev.alynx_free https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rock88dev.alynx Also, it will be interesting to hear do you think of emulator that could be improved, etc.
  6. The only Ouya thread I could find was the unboxing one, which seems to mainly be pre-release info and some grumbling about yearly upgrades. I got my Ouya a few weeks ago and am actually liking it a lot so wanted to start a new point of discussion. I am intrigued by the possibilities. I know the opinion from some is that these are just oversized cell phone games, but I have an Android phone and I hate it for gaming. I am currently carrying a DS XL for Mario Kart action. The only game I play on the phone is that silly Dragonplay Poker which is stupid, but poker is a weakness and I want to get to 10 million fake chips. www.reddit.com/r/ouya is where I've been going for most of my Ouya info, but I am looking for some classic gamer perspective here. So far I have found the emulation to be great--the only thing missing right now that I would love is better 8-bit support. I've been using my Wii as an emulation machine, but the Ouya has so far been much easier and has easily passed the "wife test"--she can get on it and play some retro games without too much hassle. The default controller is also much better (on the Wii I am always having to dig out a classic controller). I've got XBMC installed, which is pretty great. Very good instructions. We've enjoyed playing many rounds of "You Don't Know Jack." The controllers are OK. Not great, but not horrible. It runs quietly. It does not take up a lot of space. When I have time for games, it's definitely in the mix. If they ever get friends lists and all of that sorted out (so far this is the most serious weakness in my view), my Ouya username is the same as here. Really interested in hearing the impressions of others!
  7. Our story today starts with me using a phone without buttons. Yes, it drives me nuts. What happened was naturally I needed a phone with a good data plan and my phone carrier at the time was all like "no, we don't have a better data plan, sit down, keep using our outdated service and keep sending us money." So I moved networks. And many other people probably did too because they updated their networks after I left. Now you know how this works. I've been through three phone carriers since 2001 and honestly, they will be good for a while and just get complacent and someone else will come along, offer something better, and people will switch to that network will they become either overloaded or complacent. But competition in networks and people switching like the great herd keeps things from being stagnant forever. So I got the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime, a low end model phone which was the basic model of this network in 2015, they of course have moved on since. One thing I am enjoying about more modern Android phones over my Galaxy Pocket from 2011-2012 is the ability to more readily accept Bluetooth devices. The projection keyboard works. And I picked up a chicklet key keyboard that feels much like my MacBook Air keyboard, just a bit smaller. Bluetooth is basically the answer to phones with no buttons. There are also USB keyboards but all the apps I've seen required a hack at the root level, so this was not easily done. Now, if I had my druthers, I would get a keyboard the size of phone case. You just open up the case and there is a small Bluetooth keyboard. I tried to get the smallest Bluetooth keyboard I could find. Well, for cheap. So what I found before moving onto other projects was this keyboard that work work with a tablet. Speaking of tablets, I am impressed by what is available for the iPad like the keyboard attachment above. Even seen joystick attachments, things to make iPad part of a drum, part of a guitar, just amazing tactile stuff to give more feel to a tactile-less computer experience. But the only problem is when you go to put a protective case on a iPad and then it is too thick to slide in a dock like the one this keyboard stand has. Oh well. So what I was working with was not quite for the cell phone I had. So what I finally did was put some small metal plates in the back of the rubberized protective case. That way I was able to keep the phone in place with some strong, rare earth magnets from a old hard drive. [[For those that might remember the Red Green Show, Red had duct tape as the handy man's secret weapon. My secret weapon used for about everything? RARE EARTH MAGNETS! ]] So the screen is in place, and I have a Bluetooth keyboard so I have actual BUTTONS!!! And while the screen is view-able, I add another trick of magnifying the screen. Yes, I am playing with ChromeCast to project the screen onto a HDMI monitor. But a lower tech solution? A magnifying screen bought from Jo-Ann's Fabrics set just a little apart from the phone to magnify it by about ... I'd say 20%. Still an improvement though. So I hold the magnifying screen in place with a drinking straw and binder clips. So here is a comparison of how the magnification looks: Fun trick. So I've been playing with this a bit and it is getting more seamless. I turn the power on to the keyboard and that wakes up the phone when a Bluetooth device connects. At which point I can select on the main menu what app I want using the arrow keys. Most of the time I use terminal programs for getting on various Atari BBSs through telnet which has been fun. This blog is mostly about devices with buttons or adding buttons to devices so with that I'll end there. But I will be starting ANOTHER blog about my BBSing experience and part of which using my Android to make that happen. Thank you Atariage for the awesome opportunity to start many blogs for us to share many innovative ideas. And so I leave you with my phone, sitting next to a laptop, trying and mostly succeeding at mimicking a laptop. Phones... they are computers too, just stripped down and dumbed down for the average user.

  10. Hey guys I'm a college student who just recently bought an Atari 2600 and I happened across a copy of Cosmic Ark by Imagic at a local game store. I was blown away by the game considering what it was doing at the time and was having enough fun with it that I decided to see if could try creating my own clone of the game for Android phones. The reason I'm posting this here is because I was wanting to get some feedback on features I could add and once this project gets a little further hopefully some testing. Currently I've been working on it in Unity 5 and have been using a bunch of placeholder for models (i.e. the ark is made of a bunch of cylinders) and I've got a basis for the asteroid attack part of the game working as seen in the gif. http://imgur.com/wkGdHwC I definitely plan on including an online leaderboard as well as two different controller schemes (HUD Joystick/no HUD touch controls). I may possibly add n remix version where you can purchase upgrades as well as a classic mode which will stay as true to the original game as possible. Since I don't have much money I do plan on putting ads in the game, whether its a little banner on the start screen or possibly that new system that asks if you want to watch video for a reward. I don't plan on putting overly invasive ads that appear after each round since I find that those completely break the flow of the game. So if you have any feedback on features you'd like to see, how to handle ads, or if this is even a good idea, I'd love to hear it!

  12. Hi, I recently installed Colleen on my JXD78000b tablet. The Emulator runs quite nice, but I can't figure out how to properly assign hardware controls. The JXD has a lot of physical buttons and a gamepad and analog sticks. So far I was only able to assign the joystick to the gamepad and the fire button to one of the buttons (but not to the one I'd prefer). It would be fantastic if there was a way to assign also the function keys (like start/option/seelct) and some common keyboard keys to the buttons. Even better if there were game specific settings. Did anyone figure out if that's possible at all? Thanks a lot!

  14. I thought I would share this article that I found on Android Central. https://www.androidcentral.com/wonder-android-switch-competitor Obviously things are still in the development stage, but it does sound rather intriguing to me.
  15. I did not see it mentioned here before but if it is old new I'm sorry. Jeff Minter (of Tempest 2000 fame) has released a revamped version of his oldy Gridrunner for Android and iOS. The Android version is Donationware and the iOS version is $0.99. Maybe this is the time to upgrade my Symbian phone to Android Robert http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=t4WOnuqeetI
