The download link seems to be not functioning for me. Is any one else able to download it?

Is this a 7800 rom then? That's just Awesome! :D I see someone did it for the 2600 too.

scene.org, pouet.net etc. are down today, for whatever reason. In the meantime, grab it from the attachment.

 

Oh yes, fwiw, I coded this.

Actually I mean this. I enjoy some programming after work, but I don't have the energy to program games in my free time.

Understood! How long did it take you to code the 7800 Nyan Cat demo?

Don't know, couple of hours over a couple of evenings. Music is taken from the 2600 version.

I don't know. I can only test 32k ROMs. I can't really think of anything much impressive, not without additional RAM.

Also, the TIA's sound capabilities suck. While some people have done pretty decent music for the 2600 I don't think I'd want to do a 7800 demo with TIA sound. To be honest, the 7800 is a really ridiculous thing.

You can do some interesting things with 7800 graphics like G2F and 160C (high colour mode like APAC on the A8s). Have a look at my profile for links to the games I'm working on, tech demos and tools too.

I just played this via the MESS emulator and it was really quite good. I actually prefer this version to the official one. It would be pretty cool to have it as a screen saver; probably would be difficult to make one though that's light on CPU resources.

 

I know my judgment probably doesn't mean much as you’re looking for feedback from your fellow peer programmers but you really did a great job IMO.

 

It's still a VERY annoying internet meme though but this version makes it bearable. It's like being stabbed in the eye with a cotton swab rather than a screwdriver.

also has cotton swab qualities too :lol:

Wait a minute, you might program more for the 7800 if you had more RAM to work with and a better sound chip? What is this- some kind of sick advertising scheme for the XM?!?! ;-)..... :lol:

Well, I'm more waiting for easily available PCBs with EPROM, RAM and a socket for a sound chip (doesn't have to be a Pokey...you could stick in a CPLD or Micro emulating anything, right). That would be quite sufficient for me.

The 7800 version can be downloaded here :-

 

 

I want to see a conversion of "Midnight Mutants" to the "Charlie Sheen's Adventures" where you are a frikkin' warlock rockstar from Mars and you have to save the planet by gaining Tigerblood power-ups and Adonis DNA enhancers as you try to take down the evil Hollywood studios and save all of the planet's women for yourself...

 

Each time you kill a villain, an audio sample would play Sheen proclaiming "winning" and if you have an SIO-to-Ethernet cable connection for the 7800XM, it'll post your current score with hashtag #winning to Twitter.

 

I'd pay $50 for that. And you know Charlie Sheen would eat that up big-time.
