This has been sat on my hard drive for a while but this year I decided to finish it off :-

[attachment=271197:xmas12.a78]
[attachment=271198:xmas12.bin]

CC2 users will need the following information :-

78POKEY 78BIOS

Many thanks to nonner242 for the graphics, PG for the music and sh3-rg for testing. The music is PG's version of this [url="http://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=62715"]MOD[/url].

The single binary works on both NTSC and PAL machines. Its fine on ProSystem 1.3e but the latest version (0.147) of MESS has a visual glitch. I haven't tried it on any other emulators so YMMV.

Merry Christmas!

EDIT: Now that most people have seen it I'll add a screenshot and a brief description.

There are six regions of parallax scrolling. The three at the bottom of the screen overlap and are drawn in two different colour depths as well. MARIA is very nearly maxed out in some of those bottom zones. The RMT music and graphics take just over 24K of ROM space.

Great stuff, Mark. I am humbled that you even greeted me personally. :)
It's truly a nice gift for Christmas to see this, I just posted on neXGam so that the people there try it too. :)

Way late to the party, I re-organized my 7800 donors (well, all donors really) and found a couple of Ballblazer carts, one of them is now this demo and it rocks!

 

Where is Groovybee, anyway? :?

He's been on the Intellivsion message board on this site.  His last post on the Atari 7800 board was in late April and left the Atari 7800 scene at this time.

Left for the INTV.

 

Bummer, I wonder if my new boards could change his mind. :(  I bet the whole XM thing is what got him pissed off, so many trolls, not everyone has a thick skin.

And we're happy about it. :) Bob is doing a great job taking care of 7800 homebrews. :)

 

 

Why would any of us be happy about such a talent leaving Atariland for George Plimptonland?

 

Come back, Groovy!

 

Besides, I thought he had left 7800ville to convert Star Raiders for the Atari ST over to the Jaguar...

 

 

And can we have some vids posted to YouTube of this? Thanks.

This holiday bin from last year was a fine piece of work by Mark et al.  Mark's back on the XM right now, so who's doing the XMas 2013 version?

 

Here's the text from last year which blessed us 7800ers & Jaguarers for a great year this year...it could easily be replaced with this year's commentary which could bless us with a great next year...it's all in ASCII and the new text just needs to be typed in...
