  1. Check out this thread from The Cover Project forum: http://www.thecoverproject.net/forums/index.php?topic=22545.msg210563;topicseen#new It appears people are making their own physical copies of "digital only" switch games. How it works: -Buy blank switch cases, have art inserts printed up and insert them -But micro sd insert for switch cart space in game cases (wiggy creating and selling these on TCP-Or they come in certain retail game cart holders) http://www.thecoverproject.net/forums/index.php?topic=23139.msg206496#msg206496 -Put digital games onto individual smaller micro SD's that fit them (and potential future updates) -Create and place small cartridge labels (this just getting started.) Kind of a cool idea and something I might pursue. Seems like a good way to create your own physical copies as much as is possible. Any interest or total folly?
  2. Hey everyone, I wanted to announce my new Electronics and PCB Design course on Udemy. I worked on it for 18 months and tried to create something that would enable people to learn electronics and PCB design in a single course, have fun, and not be overwhelmed by math and too much theory. The goal of the course is to teach electronics both theoretically, but practically as well with lots of bench work. And then once the fundamentals are learned, we dive into PCB design from schematic to manufactured PCB. Those that are interested in building add-on boards for various retro system, but haven't made a PCB, then this is perfect for you. Also, those that "hack" electronics, but want a deeper understanding of analog, filters, amps, and circuit analysis, you will find this course helpful without needing a Ph.D in math Here's the information, links, and discount code... (along with some images of project developed in the course; PCBs, simulation, bread board work). Crash Course Electronics and PCB Design @ Udemy -- 135 lectures, 87 hours. 50% Discount Code HAL9000 https://www.udemy.com/crash-course-electronics-and-pcb-design
  3. I've got a new discovery of a special joystick that can get digital control games on the Atari 5200 & 2600 like Meteorites & other 80s versions of Asteroids to be more analog for fine-tuning the placement of your shots. This can also be helpful on Star Trek Strategic Operations Simulator and Wizard of War. On the flip side this variance in movement of your onscreen character may not be such a good idea in certain digital games because it may slow you down when you need to always be full-steam-ahead (ie. PacMan, Dig Dug, Frogger, Q-bert, etc...). It also will not be a preferred method of control with 5200 games that already have the benefit of innately working in an analog way with an analog controller (Missile Command, Super Breakout, Dreadnaught Factor, and Star Wars Arcade). But on the certain digital-control games which require specific shot placement or character placement, it's going to enhance your control. I am really excited to tell you that Beamrider and Gyruss are completely beyond awesome with this new method of control. I have yet to try Pitfall or Pitfall II with this method, but I can imagine there'd be a benefit with them as well. So I'd like to go over the details of how to set this up on the 5200. First you will need an original Playstation flightstick made by Madcatz. This controller has a switch to enable digital or 'pulse' digital control. The following adapters will be connected to that flightstick: 1] A PC gameport to Atari 5200 15 pin adapter. (Source: bohoki here at Atariage makes them) 2) An Atari/Amiga controller 9 pin to PC gameport controller adapter (Source: Ebay seller Ikonsgr74 makes them) 3) Best Electronics Atari Systems to Sega controller Convertor cable (Source: Best Electronics- call their 800 number to order) 4) A Tototek Joypad Counverter (Version MD). This allows Playstation controllers to work on a 9 pin port of a Sega Genesis. (Source: Tototek website) Alternate method: Replace adapters 1,2, and 3 with a Masterplay Clone adapter, and user the Tototek with it. One more method: Use a PC gameport to 5200 15 pin controller adapter with an Innovation SmartJoy Emulator adapter (Playstation to PC gameport adapter). The latter adapter is not easy to find at a reasonable price these days. If you want to see a presentation/tutorial on this, here you go:
  4. Well, nobody will go abroad just to see/hear such stuff but if You're close to Danzig, You might just consider this. YM-DIGITAL the Atari 520ST band - along with the drummer Pinokio - will play a gig at "RetroKomp /LOAD ERROR 2017" multiplatform party, taking a place in 20-22.10.2017. The club's name is "Scena Muzyczna GAK", its address is: Powstańców Warszawskich Street no. 25, 80-152 Gdańsk, Poland. GoogleMaps: http://tiny.pl/gd8dh The party's site: http://retrokomp.org/?lang=en_US The band's site: http://ym-digital.i-demo.pl/ The club's site: http://www.scenamuzyczna.pl/ The concert might sound like this but of course with ST instead of Falcon. Another thing is, I dunno how about Factor6 but I don't have enough of material, so I intend to play some of my Falcon and TT songs too. We will play in 20.10.2017. But if You'd be interested in ATARI XL/XE too, then a day later - 21.10.2017 - in the same place, Pinokio will play a solo gig with ATARI 8bit and drums. Which definitely will sound like this Regards. Y
  5. Hello to all Atari 8-bitters If you find the postage costs of mailing out the printed magazine to your part of the world too expensive, I have been pondering on the idea of making the magazine available as a digital download, i.e. a PDF file available from the website @ £1 per issue. Good idea... or crazy talk...?
  6. It seems like the vast majority of games coming out on Switch are digital only. As it so happens nearly all the games I want are digital only... Is this really the future of gaming? They bring back cartridges and put nearly nothing on them. What gives?
  7. I've got a new discovery of a special joystick that can get digital control games on the Atari 2600 and 5200 like Asteroids (2600), Gravitar (2600), Meteorites(5200), and Star Trek (2600 & 5200) to be more analog for fine-tuning the placement of your shots. This can also be helpful on The Earth Dies Screaming and Wizard of War. On the flip side this variance in movement of your onscreen character may not be such a good idea in certain digital games because it may slow you down when you need to always be full-steam-ahead (ie. PacMan, Dig Dug, Frogger, Q-bert, etc...). But on the certain digital-control games which require specific shot placement or character placement, it's going to enhance your control. I am really excited to tell you that Gravitar is especially awesome with this new method of control. I have yet to try Pitfall or Pitfall II with this method, but I can imagine there'd be a benefit with them as well. So I'd like to go over the details of how to set this up on the 2600. First you will need an original Playstation flightstick made by Madcatz. This controller has a switch to enable digital or 'pulse' digital control. The latter mode is similar to what is offered by the Atari Trakball for the 2600 and Atari 8 bit computers when it's in joystick mode. It delivers pulses when making smaller movements to slow things down a bit. In other words, it gives a pseudo-analog movement of your character/ship. To get it to work on the 2600, you'll need the following adapters between the 2600 and the flightstick: 1) Best Electronics Sega Genesis controllers to Atari Systems Adapter cable (Source: Best Electronics- call their 800 number to order) 2) A Tototek Joypad Converter (Version MD). This allows Playstation controllers to work on a 9 pin port of a Sega Genesis. (Source: Tototek website) Alternate method: 1) Buy a hard to find adapter made by Innovation that converts Playstation controllers to 15 pin PC gameports called the Smartjoy Emulator Adapter. (Source: Ebay (as of right now these are quite expensive)) 2) Obtain an inexpensive 15 pin PC gameport to 9 pin Atari/Amiga/Amstrad controller adapter (Source: Ebay seller Ikonsgr74) Methods for getting the Madcatz Flightstick connected to your 5200 are found here: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/284238-new-discovery-for-going-beyond-digital-control-on-your-5200-games/?do=findComment&comment=4140266 If you want to see a presentation/tutorial on this, here you go: https://youtu.be/igynk3Tfy6E
  8. So I saw the latest My Life in Gaming video talking about their video game soundtracks they had collected. (Youtube Link Here) This got me to thinking... I'd really like to find a digital distribution service with video game soundtracks. Amazon is kinda spotty on this and tends to only have some of the biggest releases in this category. (I randomly checked now and FF7 was available for digital but not FF9.) I managed to find a few random sites in my searches, but none of them are really delivering what I want... I'm going to link them here, but at the same time, I'm curious if anybody here has some good sites for listening to, purchasing, downloading, or anything along that line for video game music. And no I don't mean YouTube. YouTube works, but it's not the same as having a dedicated downloads that aren't just random rips from around the Internet. While randomly searching, I found the following couple of sites. VGMRips - Contains mostly chip-based organization and older consoles and handhelds. Can play from the site and sounds like the original consoles. Can download as well! https://retro.sx/ - Contains a very large variety from old to new, but it's kinda spotty and seems to focus on more popular selections. Can play straight from the site or download. https://www.sumthing.com/ - A very random one, but this is closest to what I was trying to find. It's a digital music store that has some video game soundtracks on it. Problem is it's really limited to what seems to mostly be Capcom and some newer titles. https://bandcamp.com/ - This is a generic indie music site, but there's a lot of video game bands, indie video game soundtracks (Shovel Knight is there!), and plenty of video game remixes. It can be a crap shoot to find the exact thing you want sometimes though. http://vgmdb.net/ - Video Game Music Database. Pretty much just is what it says. Large database of Video Game Music soundtracks. More of a catalog than anything unfortunately. It does contain links to purchase off-site, and they have a marketplace with people selling them. OCRemix - Yeah this one is probably already well known. Doesn't hurt to link though! Completely free remixes, thousands of community submitted tracks, 40+ dedicated remix albums. It's good stuff! ALSO FREE! Now that I've shared... Does anybody have a suggestion of closer to what I'm looking for? I'd prefer not iTunes, but that's looking like one of the better spots for what I'm thinking.
