  1. tl;dr: Play games from 21st century systems and post your times! For the fourth year in a row, it is time for the Modern gameplay tracker. Here are the links to previous seasons of the tracker: 2018 | 2019 | 2020 So what is this? The basic idea is to post what games you played during each week, and for how long. You don't have to time it down to the minute (though some of us do), and estimates are acceptable. Then, at the end of the week, the statskeeper (that's me) totals everything up and we find out which games and platforms are seeing the most action. Each week, we have top 10 lists for consoles/computers and for individual games. Guidelines: 1. Be sure to list the system, the name of the game, and the length of time you play. Please note if the game has any alternate titles by which it's better known. If you list multiple games, please group them by platform. If you play on a backwards-compatible system, e.g. Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One or PS2 games on PS3, the game should be listed under the older platform's name. This also means that games predating 2000 played on a modern system should be posted in the classic games tracker. e.g. PS1 games played on PS2, GB/GBC games played on GBA, Wonderswan played on Wonderswan Color, Windows 95/98 games on a newer PC and so forth. 2. Each week runs Monday through Sunday (at midnight), though exceptions may occur around New Year. Try to post your times no later than night to Tuesday in your local timezone. I will generally wait until Tuesday afternoon/evening Central European Time before compiling the stats. If you post after stats have been posted, your times will be counted for the next week. Feel free to indicate in your post which dates your times relate to. 3. Playing on actual hardware is preferred, although emulators are certainly allowed. In some cases (homebrews in development, rare arcade games) there's no alternative to using an emulator. 4. Our cutoff year is 2000. That is, eligible consoles and computers have to have been first released somewhere in the world after 2000. Basically any systems released around the PlayStation 2, XBox, GameCube, Game Boy Advance or after. Anything released before this time period (including the Sega Dreamcast) please post to the Classic Game Tracker The same goes for computers: we count Windows XP or newer, but not 98 or older; Mac OS X or newer, but not OS 9 or older; and so on. 5. Arcade games released on or after January 1, 2000 are permitted. 6. You don't just have to post a bare list of times -- comments, stories, gripes, and helpful hints are always encouraged! If you're struggling with a level, got a new high score, or have some thoughts about what's great or what stinks about a particular game...well, that's the kind of stuff that makes this fun to read. How to make the statskeeper's life easier: - If you post a big list of games, please consider alphabetizing them first (after grouping them by platform). - Posting your times in minutes, rather than hours + minutes, makes things a little simpler. - Even if you don't know the exact time, it's better to post a specific number and say it's an estimate. If you say you posted a bunch of games for "between 20 minutes and an hour", I'll just average everything out to 40 minutes, but it's much better to have a sense of which games you played more and which ones you played less. - If there's room for confusion or ambiguity, please address that in advance so I don't have to research it myself. Non-US releases, homebrews in progress, alternate titles, and expanded re-releases can get especially tricky. That about covers it. If you haven't participated before, or if you did and got busy with other things, consider taking part in 2021! You may find that it has some interesting side effects -- I've found that keeping a log dramatically changes how I think about my own gaming, and mostly for the better (though personally I very rarely play modern games).
  2. A bargain bin USB SNES style controller for Mac and PC! Is it any good though?
  3. This software company that my company uses just posted a really cool article on their favourite 80's & 90's retro games, and even included how to play them on PC to this day which I thought was dope. Anyone else find a couple of their favourites on this list: https://bugherd.com/blog/how-to-play-classic-pc-games/? Got a huge nostalgia hit when I saw Starcraft lol 😅 Might have to play it tonight ...
  4. https://www.fangamer.com/products/undertale-ps4-vita I'm unsure of how many people here played Undertale, but this is a pretty big announcement if you ask me. I greatly enjoyed the game for the music and characters. Very nice game overall, and I'd say best played if done so unspoiled. I'm not surprised by a physical release for PC, but I'm pretty interested in how they handle some of the elements for the PS4/Vita... Considering some of the things that happen in-game. Any other fans of the game on the site?
  5. I'm working on an Atari 2600 music program, and I'm trying to figure out a good way to get music data from the Atari 2600 to the PC. The best idea I've had so far is to encode the data into audio, and to have the PC record the audio and decode the data. Anyone have any thoughts on this? It seems like it would be pretty easy to modulate the 2600 audio signal into a bitstream that would be reasonably easy to decode on the other end. Transfer rate would probably need to be slow, but the total transfer would probably only be 500-1000 bytes. Other ideas I've had are to display the data as hex and have the user transcribe it. I currently have this implemented, but it's a bit tedious and error prone to transcribe hundreds of bytes of data. Another idea is to use the Atarivox to store data, and then use the 2600daptor to transfer the data to the PC. This seems like a good method, but then the user has to buy $75 worth of extra gear. With the audio method, no extra equipment is needed.
  6. I am currently living in a small apartment, and my girlfriend will be moving in soon. In the interests of maximizing space, I am considering putting my numberous systems into storage and getting a nice emulation setup hooked up to my new TV. How anyone here ever done this, and did it work out for you? Now, what kind of a computer is needed for good emulation? I know next to nothing about hardware, and won't be building a machine. I'll just go to Best Buy when my tax refund comes back and buy a PC. Ideally, I would like to run stuff up to the Dreamcast era smoothly, if that can be done. If not, I'll settle for a machine that runs the classics. Any recommendations on an out-of-the-box machine that does the job? Also, any suggestions for controllers? Also, has anyone here had experience with a first-gen hacked Xbox? Thanks!

    XBOX arcade cabinet

    From the album: Custom Arcade

    This was our first custom made cabinet! It has been painted black and upgraded to an HD screen. It houses a 2.7 Ghz PC with Windows XP serving a modded XBOX. It uses an I-PAC with an XBOX adapter so it can be used for either the XBOX or PC. It also has the right side controls wired to an Atari controller PCB to play an Atari 1040STE that is in there, too.

  9. I recently acquired a big lot of "new old stock" CompUSA mousepads in assorted colors and thought there might be some interest here. Whether you're a retro PC or retro Mac fan, CompUSA was a go-to store for a lot of us back in the 90s and early 2000s. All colors pictured are available and would be happy to supplement this stock picture for a photo or two of the exact mousepad you would receive. Asking $15 *including shipping* per mousepad OBO. Shoot me a PM and we'll go from there. Cheers.
  10. THE STORY: I was looking at computer cases the other day for my big PC, as it's getting older, and while the hardware is all still good and plenty fast for me, I figured it might be time for a cosmetic upgrade. Everything looked like the same boring thing. I was like "Man I wish I could get a case that has a retro look...then got to looking at some cool case mods...and then it hit me! For those that don't know, a case mod is where you shove PC innards into something besides a regular computer case. I had a buddy that shoved PC components into an old Xbox case, you can look online and see everything from giant, custom made beautiful cases, to the downright strange (a computer case made completely of ice...somehow?) I looked online, a casual search showed that nobody seems to have made a case mod out of an old Intellivision...so I decided that's what I'm going to do! Space-wise, there obviously isn't enough room for my big PC to fit into the Intellivision, but I have a little server/HTPC on my living room TV, and with some experimentation last night it looks very possible to fit everything inside! THE PLAN: I have a broken Intellivision I bought to fix the controllers on my working one, so it'll be perfect to use and not sacrifice a working unit. Only downside is that there is only one complete controller, so I plan on having that one for realism, and the other side I'll maybe 3D print a cover or some sort of clever thing to make it nice (besides, I might need the space for airflow or the power supply...). I can cut away most of the mounts for the Intellivision innards, and cut out the appropriate holes for the GPIO, power, & USB header I've got my little server/HTPC, it's in a tiny HTPC case, and consists of a mini ITX board, card reader, hard drive, and power supply (also had a DVD drive...but I can forego that): The ITX board just barely fits without cutting, so when I cut the hole for the GPIO, it will fit perfectly, and the CPU fan aligns just right with the center controller cord grille. I can take out the ITX mounting plate from the case, so the board will be secure. The hard drive is a 3.5in, but I have an extra 2.5in laptop drive that will be better for space, I figure I can mount it on the upper cover somewhere. The card reader may not fit, I was planning to put it where the cartridge slot is, but it looks a bit too long for the upper cover mount. However...I may not use the upper cover mount screws...so that will be a wait and see. If not the card reader, then just the smaller USB header that does fit. The power supply will be the biggest hurdle. It simply doesn't fit no matter where I put it, too fat. I'll probably need to buy a new one, but even the smallest kind will be tough to fit without lots of cutting. Alternatively, I may try to open the power supply up and see if I can mount the innards to fit. Since it is very low power (the thing draws less than 40 watts at full throttle!), it doesn't need a whole lot of airflow, so I think as long as a I keep the CPU fan & power supply fans unblocked, I won't need additional cooling. The Intellivision already has some vents underneath the wood grain, so it will be a good intake from the bottom, exhaust up top flow. Obviously mounting everything will be custom, I'm thinking a shopping trip to Frys Electronics to get some stuff for mounting. I'll attempt to keep everything as hidden as possible, but that missing controller will be a dead giveaway either way As far as keeping it look nice, the Intellivision has seen better days, but should be fine after a good cleaning. I'll try and keep most of the mountings and screws and things on the bottom or back of the case where they can't be seen. I think for the sake of airflow and possibly mounting things I may need to put taller "feet" on the console, but it shouldn't be noticeable. I'm thinking I might put a hinge on the cover, so I can open it up easy. I think I'll start by cutting away the old plastic mount moldings in the Intellivision so I can start figuring out where exactly to put things, I'll post some pictures tonight. I know there are easier things to do, yes I'm aware of the Raspberry Pi, & other such items. But I want a full-blown Windows PC that I can nicely display on my living room TV, and I already have almost all the parts for it! Hope 'yall enjoy reading, and hope I can get it done in a reasonable amount of time. Should be a pretty fun project I think. Let me know if you have any tips/ideas, or questions!
  11. 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?
  12. A few months ago, the alpha version of this game caught my attention an onlive 'indie showcase,' but I was too late to try it out. The full version is due out friday (though I don't believe onlive will be carrying it). If you haven't seen it, take a look: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jr3QHJJnAUA It claims to be a roguelike, and with random universes, permadeath, and short gameplay sessions it seems to hit some of the high points of the genre with a theme more compatible with my tastes. Cost on it will be $10. Did anybody here jump on the kickstarter for beta access? It'd be nice to get some more details on mechanics. On the down side, I'm reading resolution problems running it on 1024x600 netbooks, which is where I was hoping to play it. It seems like about the perfect netbook game, so that is a shame. It wants 1280x768, IIRC. I believe there will be a demo shortly after release, and I may have to wait for that to try it.
  13. Sprybug recently requested that I capture some video footage of a homebrew he was working on, Super Mario Bros 2600, to verify that it worked properly on real hardware. I have a video capture device for my PC that is capable of capturing analog composite or S-Video. I sometimes use it to capture gameplay footage directly from the console. Because my Atari doesn't output composite video, it is necessary to use an old VCR as a middle man. The VCR I am using is busted (in other words, it chews up VHS tapes and spits them back out) but the audio/video portions of it work fine. So, I proceed to connect the coax cable from the Atari to the VCR, and from the VCR to the TV. Next, I connect the A/V cables from the VCR to the capture device. It is a Hauppauge brand USB dongle which supports analog NTSC and PAL video formats, both S-Video and Composite. I set up the game and begin recording in standard NTSC definition 720x480i. Here is the result: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HF25v7LL5m8 The video feed is roach quality and almost entirely grayscale. I have used this capture device to record from both retro and modern consoles like NES and GameCube, and the colors always display flawlessly. At first I thought that the composite video (yellow cable) was to blame, so I turned the system back on, and switched the TV set to "game" (A/V) mode, disconnect the RCA cable from the capture device and plug it into the TV set. Once again, the colors were crystal clear and vibrant on the TV, ruling out the possibility of a bad cable. Why does the Hauppauge capture device work with all of my other consoles but not Atari?
  14. 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?
  15. I have a lot of games I'm trying to get rid of so I wanted to offer them here before they end up at the game store. I may entertain cash offers but mostly looking for trades at the moment. Maybe closer to the end of the week for cash. I have my wishlist along with the other stuff in the attached link. Feel free to offer any items that aren't specifically on my wishlist, especially NES/Famicom, SNES, and PS1 games and/or accessories. Action/platformers, puzzle, and horror games are good for me. Send me a PM with any offers, and please get your offers in by Friday around 12:00 noon EST.

  16. Just wanted to share this "new" platformer that's back on Kickstarter: It did not meet it's goal two years ago but the developer kept plugging away. I have no stake in this other than I'm a backer (and was 2 years ago) and would love to see this get a release. Right now its targeted for PC & Mac but their stretch goals are for Switch, PS4 & Xbox One releases, with the Switch being their first stretch tier. If you like these type of platformers give it a look and keep an eye out for the demo.
  17. Right now I am working on 4 of these systems, HP Elite Tab 900 G1s, 1 has a working battery, I am working on either buying 3 new batteries or rejuvenating the 3 dead batteries on the others. A picture shows all I guess. Running Windows 8.1 and will be running a set up version of LaunchBox Premium. Russ

  19. Hi, I loved Battlezone when it came out in the 1980s. I just discovered yesterday I could play it online via my PC. I have to use the arrow keys and space bar to aim and fire. I'm looking for a joystick with a usb that I could use. Any suggestions on joystick/controller that will work, and where to buy it? Thanks, Chris P.S. I can't wait to get higher scores using a joystick.
  20. I'm not sure if anyone can help me with this, but ! Here goes ! I recently found a good emulator for the NEC PC6001. I need it to complete a video for my youtube channel but I'm having difficulties getting it to run a .cas image for pac-man that I found on Archives.org. I have't been able to find an alternate image of this game anywhere online. I do know it exists because of this. http://p6ers.net/hashi/emupacman.html I've tried to make it work in Mess & with PC6001VW Emulator to no avail. Anyone know where I can get an alternate rom image to work with this emulator. Because so far I'm turning up nothing in my searches. Attached are the clips I currently have.
  21. Not sure if anyone posted about this or not but, just in case....... Custom Atari 2600 PC by Hard Drives Northwest

  23. Hi guy, I love developing and remaking old Atari 2600 games. Please vote for the game you like most. Sry forgot one. Dragon Fire^^ Pitfall Remake: http://thetravelergame.blogspot.co.at/ Dragon Fire Remake : http://dragonfireoldschool.blogspot.co.at/ Both are still in development. Take care.
  24. Selling off some games I don't play anymore and are taking up space. I'd rather they go to a new home and to someone who will play/use them instead of sit around and collect dust. Buyer pays shipping (will do international) and I take payment via PayPal. Prefer it if the payment is sent as a payment - I'll pay the fees. I'm willing to take offers too, though I already have the prices dropped low so don't stretch it too far! I'll test every game that I can test before payment and shipping to verify that it works - if anything is wrong then I'll let you know immediately. Ask for pictures and ye shall recieve, it's time consuming to photograph every game individually before they're even close to sold but I'll try to get them ASAP upon request. Strikethrough means pending sale but not yet sold. PS2: Drummania (JP import) - $2 Lethal Skies (no manual) - $2 Final Fantasy X Greatest Hits - $2 Ys III (JP import) - $20 JoJo Ougon no Kaze (JP import) - $10 PC jewel case: $1 each.
