  1. Disk Extended SuperCharger BASIC ----------------------------------------- Adding DOS commands to BASIC on the Atari 2600! How it works: ---------------- Disk Extended SuperCharger BASIC turns an ordinary cassette deck into an indexed filesystem with a directory structure for the Atari 2600 much like the ADAM Home Computers indexed Tape Drive advanced design. For full support, an auto-flipping Tape deck or an endless loop tape like this one can be used to make a regular cassette player function as a slow disk drive like the Commodore 1541. Or the player can manually rewind an ordinary tape to the beginning and keep pressing play, which can also be fun Ultra fast SuperCharger DOS - Fast Loader options ----------------------------------------------------------- The SuperCharger cart features built-in fast loading technology similar to Epyx fast loader and the ADAM high speed Tape drive in functionality, the buad rate can be increased to make SuperCharger DOS load faster. With Flashcarts and Emulators the SuperCharger Indexed File System can run lightning fast - many times faster than even the fastest Apple II disk drive! SuperCharger Disk Extended BASIC Backward Compatibility: ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 100% Backward compatible with SuperCharger vwBASIC, and cross compatible with Flashback BASIC (CBS RAM). Atari 2600 platform compatibility --------------------------------------- SuperCharger Disk Extended BASIC runs on classic Atari 2600 hardware with a SuperCharger and via any multicart that supports the SuperCharger format (such as the Harmony/Encore UnoCart and PlusCart) and all emulators. Performance: --------------------- Performance can vary depending upon the emulator or flashcart being used because some also emulate wait time via the loading bars. For best performance loading bars should be avoided by flashcarts or minimized to eliminate the wait time allowing the SuperCharger FS to load faster (this will emulate the Epyx Fast Loader effect like Harmony is currently doing). Capacity (Floppy Disk size): ------------------------------- The PlusCart and UnoCart support a very large capacity - large supercharger Disk Extended BASIC games can have 256 directory entries, for a 1.5 MB Atari 2600 game! Harmony currently is limited to four directory entries but I will send batari my samples and beta so we can increase the number of entries - Even older edition Harmony carts like mine from 2011 may be able to support 30 directory entries in the SuperCharger FS, and the newer Harmonies and Encores can support even more. A good analogy is that the 2011 Harmony is expandable to have a bit more capacity than an original C64 5 1/4 inch floppy. The newer models have the Capacity of a 720K 3.5 " floppy disk and the later models and the Uno and Plus have SuperCharger disk capacity of a 1.44 MB floppy. Programmers may wish to take into account the varying SuperCharger "disk size" capacities of the multicarts when creating large SuperCharger Disk BASIC games so that the games can run on them all. Availability: -------------- Disk Extended SuperCharger BASIC is currently in Beta and will be available free for download soon on the SuperCharger BASIC site
  2. I have finished a new game I've been working on. Its based on the text based game Big Rig. I have tried to keep the feel of the original game while improving the interface and visual aspects. Ive wanted to do an Oregon Trail style game since I was a kid. I could never really think of a good topic to do and didn't want to do a clone. I felt this would be a fun project. So basically this game is a 1990ish sorta edutainment simulation style game where you drive from Los Angeles to New York. If anyone feels like checking it out here is a link. https://elijahgardner.itch.io/...ing-ms-dos
  3. I am wondering if anyone has an .ATR file for the Atari 8 bit system that was a joke DOS that someone created. What happened is that when you did the A [ret] [ret] you got a directory with all the same file. There was some other stuff that made it seem like you were formatting your disk when you weren't, etc... It was quite funny prank to put on my friends Atari 800 when I had the actual disk.
  4. http://youtu.be/mOWfaZ5o35U Six Racing games that time and most gamers have forgotten. Does anybody else remember the awesome racing game called Stunts? Suggestions for Part 2?
  5. Hello, all. Long time, no post. I'm Brandon Cobb of Super Fighter Team, whom you may remember from Beggar Prince / Legend of Wukong / Star Odyssey for the Genesis / Mega Drive, and Zaku for the Lynx. How y'all been? I'm here today with news of our two newest free games [!], for Windows... Sango Fighter 2 lets you choose from 16 different generals in China's Eastern Han Dynasty, fighting it out to see who will control the entire country. Originally developed by Panda Entertainment in Taiwan, it is now available in English for the first time, with new features and enhancements. Try it out @ www.sangofighter2.com Super Fighter Special Edition is a new version of our company's namesake, built from the ground up in honor of the game's 20th anniversary. It features a new soundtrack, new attacks for each character, nearly 100 new frames of character animation, and more. Try it out @ www.superfighter.net Thanks for your interest. Have a nice day.
  6. Infocom crafted some of the best stories and characters in their 80s text adventures. I talk about two compilation sets that hold over 30+ games plus Leather Goddesses of Phobos. What do you think of Text Adventures? Did you play them back in the day...or still play them today? Which were your favorites?
  7. Hello, all. As part of my continued spring cleaning efforts I'm selling my Taiwanese video game collection for PC (DOS) and Mega Drive. Also included are two American games. Some pretty cool stuff here, most are rather difficult to find: PC: 熊貓大進擊 (aka Panda, Go!) <- Two versions: One complete (CD version), second is disks and manual only. 西楚霸王項羽 (aka Xiang Yu, The Overlord of Western Chu) <- Complete except for outer box. 西遊記 (aka Journey to the West) <- Two versions: Both complete (CD and disk; disk version not pictured because box looks exactly the same). 爆笑保齡球 (aka Hilarious Bowling) <- Complete. VR網球96 (aka VR Tennis '96) <- Complete. 排球原人 (aka Volleyball Hominid) <- Disks and manual only. 天才寶寶大進擊 (aka Little Geniuses, Go!) <- Disks and manual only. Metal & Lace: The Battle of the Robo Babes <- Complete. One Must Fall 2097 <- CD w/manual & all inserts. MD: 麻雀惡魔塔 (aka Devilish Mahjong Tower) <- Complete. 悟空外傳 (aka Legend of Wukong) <- Complete. 世界職棒爭霸戰 (aka World Pro Baseball '94) <- Complete. All disks/CDs in great shape. Recently all were tested. All CDs are fine. Floppy disks however, ~95% read OK w/no errors. However I cannot guarantee any of the data on the floppy disks due to age. Game cartridges likewise are recently tested. They work fine. I originally bought these games for research purposes, including making scans. Staples were removed from the manuals in order to get the highest quality scans. Sold "as-is." Please keep this in mind when considering a purchase. I prefer to sell the collection complete, for USD$350 -> USD$300 (includes shipping within USA). Please inquire about international shipping. Please get in touch by PRIVATE MESSAGE if interested. And don't litter the thread with "PM Sent!" messages. Nobody cares. Pardon the lackluster photos. Thanks for having a look.
  8. Hi! My name is Greg. New to the forum. Finally getting around to posting on here. I have been collecting retro computers and consoles for a number of years now, but have yet to really participate in forums. Currently I own an Amiga 600, TI 99/4A, Atari 800XL, and now new to the stable is a Tandy 1000 EX. It was obtained second hand for $5. I spent this afternoon taking the machine apart and cleaning; as well as inspecting the hardware. The computer is all clean now and boots to a prompt for a bootable discs. Herein lies the issue... I have no discs! I don't really have a way of imaging discs for 5.25 drives at this time unfortunately. After some research, I found that I will require MS-DOS 2.11 to be able to boot this machine to run software. Here are my questions. 1. Does anyone have a copy of MS-DOS 2.11 or has the means to copy a disc for me that could be mailed? 2. What is the easiest way to image these discs nowadays? Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. If you can send me a copy that would be great. I would paypal for the copy of the disc and to cover shipping.
  9. Hi. We @ Super Fighter Team did something unorthodox for us back in 2013: developed + published an Android game [!!]. Originally a commercial affair at 99¢ a pop, we recently released it as a free download. W0w. So what's the game? (Hint: It's mentioned in the subject title you clicked on.) It's Commander Keen in Keen Dreams, adapted from the original for PC (DOS). If you have an Android device and like classic games, mayhaps this is for you. http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.keendreams http://www.keendreams.com/ On another forum I took a moment to do a quick write-up on the game's development history, figured I'd copy & paste it here too in case people here also find it interesting. Hope y'all enjoy a little reading... We first agreed to develop the Android version as a favor to the previous IP holder. Super Fighter Team is a classic games firm, meaning we produce new games for classic consoles and computers. Doing mobile stuff -- aside from Super Fighter Block Battle for the Symbian OS that we'd done years before -- wasn't something we were interested in at the time. I didn't even own an Android device back then, I was using a Nokia N9 running MeeGo. When I finally decided to "give in" and produce the Android version, however, I admit I got a bit excited to have us embark on development for a new platform. Not wishing to jump ship on Nokia just yet -- even though just about everyone else in the world had already -- I refused to buy an Android device, instead opting to install the buggy and very unfinished NITdroid port as a dual-boot on my N9, to do my QC testing. (Our programmer had a full-fledged Android device.) And... surprise!! It turned out to be a fun project. We adapted the game from the original DOS source; there's no emulation involved anywhere. (As a purist, I'm not exactly big on emulation). The sound effects were recorded directly from the YM3812 chip of the Ad Lib sound card using special hardware called "adlib digisnap." The reason that some people seem to hear "things that aren't there" when playing the Android version is because the volume of the SFX had to be raised quite a bit. The original volume being fed to the YM3812 chip is very low. The card relies on the user to control the volume via the volume slider on the card or through powered speakers. If you play the original Keen Dreams on a DOS machine, and turn your volume WAAAAY UP, you'll hear those same "things" that some people pointed out. It's all in the original code/data, folks. It just isn't easy to notice. FM sound and music are quirky like that. I'm happy to boast that our version of Keen Dreams, unlike many many MANY apps floating around out there, has absolutely NO ADS, NO IN-APP PURCHASES nor any other GARBAGE that you don't want hindering your gaming enjoyment. We at Super Fighter Team don't believe in all that crap. We're not chislers. We just want to make good, high-quality, fun games and share them with people. The game was recently released for free after my push to make it so. I personally did not wish for it to be a commercial game in the first place, but since we didn't/don't own the IP, we didn't have final say in the matter. The game cost us a good chunk of change to develop and it never turned a profit... but see, we never cared about that. We were just happy to get a license to produce and publish the game. But as has been announced here already, the game is finally FREE now since we were finally able to convince the IP holder to let that happen. So please, visit Google Play or our website and download it to all your devices, share it with friends, enemies, strangers... heh, heh. If, in the future, we end up producing and publishing versions of Keen Dreams for classic machines, those will be physical products and thus we'll charge for them. But Keen Dreams for Android is a digital download. So... go download it with our compliments. Thanks! Keen_Dreams-Android.zip
  10. So I just installed Chasm: The Rift on my DOS PC and I noticed something really weird. It auto-centers the crosshair whenever you move backwards in unlimited mouselook mode. It's beyond annoying. Especially when compared to Quake's +mlook (in the console) where it does none of that shite. I understand that it wasd+mouselook did not really become the standard until the early 2000s but to have any auto-centering and no way to turn it off is annoying as hell.
  11. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12zGtbW9fis Not every series of first person shooters gets a proper sequel like Call of Duty or Halo. Instead some FPS games come on the market, maybe get a sequel if we're lucky and then sadly fade into the sunset. This week these 7 unloved FPS gems get one last glance from fans of the genre.
  12. Hello, all. Just dropping in to let everyone know that Commander Keen in Keen Dreams (classic PC game for MS-DOS) is now available for Android enabled devices, under official license. We adapted the game directly from the original source code, and the sound effects were digitally recorded from the YM3812 chip of the Ad Lib sound card to ensure they were perfectly preserved. The game can be played using the touch screen or a gamepad. Check it out at Google Play... http://play.google.c...=com.keendreams Thanks for your attention. Have a nice day.
  13. Dear all, I've indulged myself with a great new 3"1/2 disk drive that I bought from "Sell My Retro". Until I can find and afford a true XF351 prototype, I'm truly happy with this disk drive. It's a hand-made clone of the XF551, with a 3"1/2 mechanism. I got it with a bootable DOS II+ disk (Stefan Dorndorf). It works fine. I tried to operate the drive with the SpartaDOS X cartridge, and formatted a 720kb disk, fine! Now, I'd like to get your expertise: SpartaDOS X allows me to format the diskette but not to make it bootable with a copy of the DOS... For a 3"1/2 disk drive, what do you think would be the best DOS, to create "bootable", 720kb formatted 3"1/2 diskettes? I would also like to get any documentation about this motherboard, to figure out what this J6 section (S1/S2/SIDE/STEP/DIR/TR00/VCC) is useful for. Thank you! Laurent (I've got more pictures of the drive and its motherboard if anyone is interested)
  14. http://youtu.be/yMH7QpcTVE0 Not every series of first person shooters gets a proper sequel like Call of Duty or Halo. Instead some FPS games come on the market, maybe get a sequel if we're lucky and then sadly fade into the pre-rendered low textured sunset. Well, I'm here this week to make sure these 6 unloved FPS gems get one last glance from fans of the genre. What games should be in Part 2 & 3? Let me know!
  15. Found this at a HPB years ago and was able to install Black Gate, never got around to trying Serpent Isle or Forge of Virtue (plus I didn't have a 5.5" floppy drive). Lots of goodies, including the maps, registration cards and guides and so on! It's time for it to go to someone more interested in DOS and old Origin games. If you know of any other forums that would be interested, I would appreciate it! Updated w/ intl. shipping: eBay Auction -- Item Number: 331645563799 eBay Auction -- Item Number: 331637182725
  16. I was reading the Dos 3 manual (ducks) while sitting in the smallest room of my house (guess which one that is) : "In addition to the Master Diskette 3 (CX8104), your ATARI Disk Drive comes with an ATARI Formatted Diskette 3 (CX8111). Although this diskette has no files or program data on it, it has been preformatted at the factory. Preformatting means the diskette was divided into tracks and sectors before packaging (Figure 3-1) so that it has an improved sector layout. This improved sector layout makes it possible for you to store and retrieve information more rapidly than is possible with diskettes formatted on your ATARI Disk Drive." How do these improved sector layouts work? Or is this bogus and Atari just wanted you to buy these "improved" disks from them?
