  1. I am starting to prepare myself for the next RGC in 1 month in Paris. So I had to look back to 2109, and in my opinion it is one of the biggest year for the Lynx. So many things... Of course, 11 new games for the programming competition, new developpers, games completed and released this year, new hardware... Just one example : Retroguru (Nop90) released no less than 5 completed games this year, and maybe a sixth one for the SillyVision Lynx Compo... Awesome work ! So I started to design a poster for the RGC, and I'd like to share with you the preliminary draft. And I probably forgot so many things (did not even mentionned new development tolls, like Milfork or Unity 8 bits as I haven't tested them yet - and upcoming part is really limited to some selected and recents projects), so feel free to point me toward missing stuff, or mistake... For developpers, if you uploaded a ROM of your game, I will put it on SD flash card and Agacart for demonstration during the show. If you don't want me to do so, drop me a PM. If you want to send me another version, drop me a PM also.
  2. I picked up Championship Rally at Portland Retro this weekend and I’m looking for strategies for Tournament mode. I haven’t yet beaten the first circuit...I can reliably get 2nd in every race, but can’t quite rack up 8 points. some questions for you all: 1. Braking (button B) doesn’t seem to do anything in tournament mode. I feel like it’s the same as just letting off the gas. Am I doing it wrong? Should I be doing some heel-toe motions? 2. What’s up with that moveable bush on the Desert map? It’s at the first turn, and I don’t believe any of the others are moveable... 3. What’s the best path on the City map? Should I take the first left, or the second? 4. Any tips for getting into first place?
  3. About 6 years ago, for a Jaguar, a created a VRBasic Translator (in .NET) that translates VRBasic code into C and then feeds it into the C compiler to get the target platform (Jaguar) binary. Since, allegedly, there's no BASIC for Lynx (I really wouldn't know, as I'm ignorant on the platform's history and only got familiar with coding it in C/Asm few months ago) - it looks like it might be worthwhile to port the VRBasic to Lynx as that might entice more users to the platform. I took the liberty to implement the Microsoft's syntax of BASIC, so this would be unfortunately quite far from the Atari 800 XL's Basic syntax (with line numbers), but: - it's still much more accessible than C - no Line numbers - no curly braces - no semicolons - you can use hardcoded paths to your art assets (sprites) right in your code (without using any external tools), and the backend will do all the heavy lifting (loading, conversion, alpha keying) at the compile-time, so on Jaguar it just works Here's one sample to show the syntax: ' VRBasic Sample 05 - Sprite Drawing ' Sep-2013 ' Declare the sprite variable as a global variable to avoid passing it to every function using it Module Globals Dim ImgWall As Sprite End Module ' Draw all colors in the palette Sub DrawPaletteAt (xp As Integer, yp As Integer) For idxColor As Integer = 0 To 255 DrawPixel (xp + idxColor, yp, idxColor) Next idxColor ' Draw some helper points every 32 pixels to assist with picking the color index For idxHelper As Integer = 0 To 8 DrawPixel (xp + idxHelper*32, yp+1, 127) Next idxHelper End Sub Sub Main () SetGraphicsMode () DrawPaletteAt (32,0) ' LoadImage takes a full path, so you will have to update it based on where you installed the VRBasic LoadImage (ImgWall,"c:\jaguar\_Projects\_VRBasic\src\Samples\ArtAssets\TileA2_16_Colors_Palette.gif",8) ' Now let's place the palette of the loaded image at the desired destination in our palette - for example at index 100 CopyPalette (100,ImgWall) ' Of course, since we changed the palette indices of the image after loading, we need to update the image data for the same offset ' Under Virtual Jaguar, upon every restart of the *.j64 (e.g. when it reaches End Sub for Main () ), this will have the effect of further offseting the colors, since VJ does not seem to reload the *.j64 (merely jump to Sub Main), thus the Image Data are not physically reloaded OffsetImage (100,ImgWall) ' Let's display the sprite roughly in the middle of the screen ShowImage (ImgWall, 160,100) Wait (5000) End Sub Obviously, the platform's specific functionality (sprites, palettes, etc.) would have to be recoded for Lynx (or use TGI), but the basic language should, in theory, compile fine (assuming no major differences between jaguar's C and cc65) right out of the box. I should also have a full PDF documentation, somewhere on my hard drive...
  4. Auction up on eBay https://www.ebay.com/itm/Atari-Lynx-System-Bundle/202783520419?hash=item2f36d6f6a3:g:cfkAAOSwOahdhTP4
  5. Hi. My name is Rich and I have a small VR channel on YouTube. I invite you to see my retro console collection on YouTube. I'm about to get to 900subs and I'm doing something special.
  6. UPDATE: This is already sold. I have an official limited edition Defi Lynx pin coffret available for sale right now. Here are the details: These coffrets were part of the Defi Lynx promotion run in 1991 by Atari France. There are two known limited runs of these coffrets: the firts run consisted of 250 coffrets, numbered on the back as XXX/250 and the second run consisted of 100 coffrets, numbered on the back as XXX/100. Coffrets in the second run contained one extra pin that was missing in the first run: Klax. The coffret I'm offering for sale is the open one in the first picture. It's numbered 65/100, which means it belongs to the 100 units limited run. This coffret does NOT contain all 35 pins in the Lynx pin collection. It contains the 24 pins that are usually found in the 100 units limited run: 1x A.P.B. 1x Block Out 1x Blue Lightning 1x California Games 1x Chip's Challenge 1x Electrocop 1x Gates of Zendocon 1x Gauntlet: The Third Encounter 1x Klax 1x Ms. Pac-Man 1x Ninja Gaiden 1x Pac-Land 1x Paperboy 1x Rampage 1x RoadBlasters 1x Robo-Squash 1x Rygar 1x Shanghai 1x Todd's Adventures in Slime World 1x Warbirds 1x Xenophobe 1x Zarlor Mercenary 2x Atari Lynx Logo Pins are placed in the exact same order they were originally placed. All coffrets I have seen belonging to the 100 run had pins placed in the same way. Coffret's overall condition is very good, given its age (28 years). Just a few tiny scratches here an there. I'm looking for money offers. You can offer to throw in any (really, really) rare Lynx item as part of the deal if you want to bring the price down, but your offer must be mostly cash or I won't take it into consideration. I'm in Madrid, Spain and will ship to Europe, US, Canada, Japan or Australia. Shipping fees will be on the buyer, though. Feel free to to ask anything related to this coffret in this thread so I can clarify things for everyone, but I will only answer to offers made through private messages in these boards. This article has also been posted in the Atari Lynx Fans group in Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/lynxfans/permalink/2784496444954040/ This is an extremely rare opportunity. Be sure not to miss it. Good luck.
  7. Being a noob to the world of Lynx, why is this one so rare? All I can find so far seems to be a $260 & $330 listing on Ebay! Do they usually go for cheaper when they show up or is that about right? Those are both boxed too, but still.....I know the Telegames titles tend to be rare, but I think that's a huge leap in price compared to some of the other rarer ones I've searched for. Seems like a kick ass title for the Lynx regardless I remember the Strike series for Super Nintendo/Genesis, etc. I always found them interesting, but never got to play em.
  8. Some great classic TV commercials in this short video. Including Batman Returns. Which was a decent port for the handheld. Link: https://goo.gl/cKSmC4
  9. In my effort to provide documentation for lynx, I've started a new task : "vectorisation" of the Atari Lynx Schematics. I've done it with KiCAD. The schematics are based on the 4 part of Atari Lynx Hardware Schematics This is not the "final" version. Some parts were hard to read/understand. If you see any mistake, please feel free to report it. Schematics v0.1.pdf
  10. I was looking for the woman who worked with John Skruch when I worked for Atari and I found THIS! I hope this is not a repeat post, but this is AWESOME! http://www.digitpress.com/library/books/book_atari_lynx_hint_book.pdf I always loved the Zarlor Mercenary "Game of Life" egg and the Chips Challenge Mandelbrot generator. Notes: The RoadBlasters egg is wrong - you have to be holding a button when you drive into the tree. Toki eggs were unknown to Sunnyvale apparently (hehehehe).
  11. A real labor of love is finally complete. An Atari drawing for everyday of the month of October 2016 (31 drawings), now in one beautifully printed collection, Inktober 2016 | Atari Propaganda. Atari Lynx, Atari ST, and Atari Jaguar are featured most of the time, but there are a few bonuses in there as well. Because I am not one for heavy marketing, I want to make sure that everyone who would like a copy of this collection can get it for a deal right up front. I also don't want to spend the next year packing and shipping books, I got more Atari art to make darn it! So here is a bit of encouragement to purchase sooner rather than later. If you purchase the Atari Propaganda collection before the end of the day January 27th, you can get the $20 book for $18 USD (%10 off). If that is still too much, sign up for my mailing list (link at the top of my website) and get an additional %15 off of a single copy making your purchase $15 + shipping. This includes a dated signature from the artist of course. Not interested in buying the whole collection? Not a problem, I also have all the larger (8.5x11") art prints of every drawing on sale as well for $7 a piece. Pick the ones you really want, without the hassle of flipping the pages of a book. Thank you for the support, and enjoy the Atari fan art goodness! Atari Propagand Book Product Page (purchase here): http://williamthorup.com/product/inktober-2016-book/ Individual Art Prints http://williamthorup.com/product-category/art-prints/inktober_2016/ Get your extra 15% off coupon here: https://goo.gl/t0y69l Digital gallery of all the artwork included in the book: http://williamthorup.com/inktober-2016/
  12. I recently purchased this retail standee display and accompanying items. The Batsignal lights up when you press the button and it still works. It runs off of a 9V battery. I'd never know of Grey Matters magazine before finding this and attempting to find copies of other volumes doesn't look easy. Hope you all enjoy and if anyone knows of other Lynx displays I'd like to see them. http://imgur.com/gallery/AFodP

I'm looking for some games like Paperboy, Batman, Ninja Gaiden, Lemmings, Robotron, California Games, Stun Runner, etc. If anyone has any they're willing to part with reasonably inexpensive, let me know!

  15. With MGC being about 3 months away, figured now is the best time to send out my feelers for helpers for Jagfest section there. I am hoping to make it this year to help celebrate the 20th anniversary of this event that started in chicago on july 12th,1997(working on getting my license to drive instead of taking megabus or relying on going with others) if anybody is interested in helping let me know. Side note: we also looking for some help on the section for VGS in July as well while we can't do much with space limits,but any help with jagfst section is good. so let me know about that as well.
  16. - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Oklahoma's Retro Video Game Exhibition Returns TULSA, OK (April 5, 2013) – Classic video games will return from history, as mid-America's one and only OVGE returns for the tenth Oklahoma Video Game Exhibition! On September 21, 2013 video game collectors and enthusiasts from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and even further will travel together to the Spirit Bank Event Center in Tulsa to celebrate the history, hobby, collecting, and entertainment of the video gaming industry. “Before the OVGE, people from the surrounding states had to travel across the country for events such as this,” said Jesse Hardesty, founder and organizer of the OVGE. "And since the OVGE first began back in September of 2003, we have inspired many other retro conventions in the surrounding areas." In 1972, the release of the Odyssey by Magnavox, the first multi-video game system for the home was a new technological curiosity. Seven years later in 1977, Atari released the 2600VCS and both created and changed home entertainment forever and the beginning of a new industry! Then, in the year of 1983 an overflow of poor games and even poorer sales resulted in the great crash of the video game industry. A crash that wouldn't heal until 1985, with the introduction of the Nintendo Entertainment System, video game sales and popularity have flourished ever since! Still, many video game players find themselves returning to classic video games. With the advanced high definition graphics and motion control of today’s video games, why are so many people fascinated with the classics? “Even though modern game systems have amazing graphics and sound, the most important aspect of any video game is that it actually be fun to play. Because classic game systems, like the Atari 2600, had very simple graphics, game designers had to focus on the game-play. Those same games that were fun in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s are still just as much fun today,” stated Albert Yarusso, modern video game programmer and co-founder of AtariAge.com. It is this simple pick up and play philosophy that makes for quick gaming and is a philosophy still active today with the rise of mobile games and powerful portable handheld gaming systems. "With video gaming being today’s main form of home entertainment, the history behind it should not be forgotten,” said Hardesty. “The Oklahoma Video Game Exhibition provides today's youth and their parents a chance to visit and interact with that past." This year, some of the proceeds from OVGE will benefit the Autism Center of Tulsa a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by autism, a series of spectrum neurological disorders now being diagnosed in approximately one in every eighty-eight births in the United States alone. Numerous video game systems, computers, and arcade machines, will be set up for the public to play plus tournaments and door prizes! Vendors and exhibitors will have memorabilia on display with most items for purchase. Doors will open to the public at 9:00 a.m. and close at 5:00 p.m. Cost of admission for ages eight and above is $5 dollars at the door. The OVGE is organized by gaming enthusiasts who want to share their hobby and passion for classic and modern video games with the public. For more information and complete details, visit www.ovge.com.
  17. I noticed that best-electronics-ca.com is selling refurbished Lynx decks for around $45, which seems pretty straight to me. They offer both the Lynx I and II. Does anyone have an opinion as it which one I should get? Personally, I think that the first model looks cooler.
  18. I love reviewing weird and unusual games that most people may not have heard of and a few months ago I started sharing some of my favorite games from the Lynx. So far there are three episodes to this "Lynx retrospective" where I discuss the games. It starts with Electrocop, then Gates of Zendocon, followed by Slime World. My next one will be a conclusion video (unless suggested otherwise) where I showcase a few more games for the system with little snippets about each one (Blue Lightning, Paperboy, Hydra, Gauntlet, Toki, Rygar, and California Games to name a few). I thought fans of the system would get a kick out of it ^_^ I hope it is found to be enjoyable... Episode One: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LP5EHK0JLLw Any feedback or suggestions for more games would be welcome. Should I give games like Blue Lightning their own video or should I just end it with the compilation as mentioned above?
  19. Hello to every Lynx fanatics, Is there a good game designer, pixel artist ready to invest some(a lot ...) time in a homebrew project ? I am a hobby developer but have sadly no design skill and knowledge. I have a beginning of a raycasting engine which needs contents. I attach the current dev. status(game.zip) so you can figure out if you'd like and are ready to enroll. If you do please PM me. Even if you don't feel like an artist's soul, any ideas, suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
  20. Hi, Has anybody been able to compile the tgidemo from the cc65 samples? Installed cc65 according to http://atarilynxdeve...nt-environment/ According to the README file it should be supported for lynx but I haven't been able to compile it successfully. I'm trying to compile this from a cygwin window with the gnu make installed. $ make -v GNU Make 3.82.90 Built for i686-pc-cygwin Copyright © 2010 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

  21. Hi, everyone. I have the following Japanese editions of Lynx games available for trade: Klax (loose cart) Gates of Zendocon (CIB) Shanghai (CIB) I would like to trade any of them for the following Lynx collectibles: Hard Drivin' pin Official Atari Lynx Club pin Official Atari Lynx Club wallet Official Atari Lynx Club cap Official Atari Lynx Club t-shirt Défi Lynx t-shirt I'm also looking for the CIB Japanese edition of any of these Lynx games: Chip's Challenge Paperboy Rampage RoadBlasters Rygar Todd's Adventures in Slime World Zarlor Mercenary I might be willing to hear other interesting proposals for trade if the offered item is rare enough. If necessary, money can be used to balance the trade either way, but please note that none of these items are for sale, they are exclusively for trade. Anyone interested can PM me. Thanks in advance for your time and interest. Regards, Juan José.
  22. I can either do money or trade. Stuff for trade: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/228532-complete-genesis32x-lot-interest-money-or-trade-prices-added/ http://atariage.com/forums/topic/225148-segasaturns-fs-threadbooks-computer-parts-etc-updated-721/?do=findComment&comment=2984944 Or money if we can do a deal! I'm looking for a lot of different Lynx games. Just pm me with what you have!
  23. I've listed a bunch of Lynx and 7800 games fulfilled by Amazon Canada, search or click through them here: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aag/main/ref=olp_merch_name_2?seller=ASVVEHBRLZEPV I didn't spend a lot of time setting prices, feel free to make me an offer on here if I've overpriced something and I'll reduce it on the site. I listed them here because I need to get rid of a whole load of stuff and I shipped it all to Amazon in a single box for CAD$10 - packing up and calculating the shipping for 60+ individual boxes is just too much effort for me. Also shipping is cheap (or free if you have Prime or order enough) within Canada, and hopefully shouldn't be too bad from the US either.
  24. ** EDIT ** This system has been traded, thanks for all the interest! Lynx 2 system which includes the following items: Boxed Kit Case (purchased new from B&C) Com-Lynx cable Power Supply NOS screen installed from Best Electronics Boxed Games: Chip's Challenge (purchased new) Ishido (box is rough) Rampart (purchased new) Shanghai (purchased new) Steel Talons (box is good) Tournament Cyberball (box is fair) Xybots (purchased new) Loose games with manuals: California Games Klax (purchased new from B&C) Warbirds Loose Games: Checkered Flag Crystal Mines II Gates of Zendocon Qix Roadblasters Xenophobe Zarlor Mercenary Everything works. Not willing to break up the set at this point. Looking for $150 shipped to the 48 states, or will trade for a PSP 3000 with charger, memory stick and some games. Can ship outside US, however you will need to pay additional for actual shipping cost. Pix:
  25. So I have noticed lately that the game gear case is horribly designed in this regard, placing the game cases above the screen which will eventually scratch them. My Lynx case also has stuff move around it sometimes, though I use my sun visor as a screen protector basically I tried putting a small screen cleaning rag on my GameGear but it always slides off exposing the screen to potential damage.. SO....what do you guys do to keep your screens scratch free? I swear one of the best tertiary design effects of the DS two screens layout is that it keeps the scratches off. Kids still manage to destroy them somehow. Thanks in advance!
