Very perplexed by Kaboom CIB (with wear) for $172.50. What am I missing here? Is this a rare variation or just some ignorant ebay buyer? Very confused and curious! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vtg-Activision-KABOOM-AX-010-Atari-2600-Video-Game-Cartridge-34-Of-90/401704355473?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055359.m1431.l2649
Ok, i have been working on this for a month or so in the evenings / night after work and i think its coming along nicely now in the current version i have tried to include most of the features of the original atari 2600 game: 8 levels 8 speeds 8 different point amounts for collecting the bombs in the bucket this version does not follow the same bomb dropping as the atari 2600, i decided to spice it up a little and use some degree of randomness (based on the x position of the bomber and the x position of the player for the seed some features are not included as yet, the item that most concerns me is the extra life every 1000 points, i may be over thinking this quite substantially but to me right now this seems to be very complicated. you cant check dead on 1000 / 2000 etc because if your at 995 then earn 10 points you are at 1005 and the check will not catch it. using greater than would cause a new life to be added every program loop if the score higher than 1000 which is not wanted i tried to use: if (score / new_life_points) = cint(score / new_life_points), this caused its own issues, mainly because the jaguar as i understand it does not take kindly to decimal numbers and in my tests 995/1000 although should equal 0.995, the jaguar decides it equals 0. Nice!!! this option is however thinking about it no good because it still only basically gives you if score = 1000. so for the moment im at a loss on that one, if anyone has any ideas let me know moving on, there are only two sound samples integrated currently, the explosion sound and a splash sound all sprites are 16 colours i hope to work on this beautifying it somewhat in the future, as i am quite enjoying actually making something useful for the jaguar things to do: new life every 1000 change bombers face to smile at 10000 add rotary support, which I don't think can be tested in VJ add title / options / game over screens achievements - i am undecided on this one yet add a selection of bombs to use add a selection of buckets to use probably a load of things I haven't listed thanks goes to: CJ / GGN / SH3 for continued abuse comments and help and putting up with my stupid questions at times which has lead to the creation of this spaghetti bowl of bad code if anyone has any useful criticism, please post it here, i shall be keeping an eye on the thread to see what people think of this Kaboom.abs
