Thanks so much almightytodd! I definitely wanted a name that would be intimately tied to the Atari 2600 (and 6502+variant architectures) and ZeroPage jumped out to me almost immediately. It had a great sound to the words and definitely had an association to a specific era of programming & gaming!

 

I love the name of this... ...was the ZeroPage concept unique to the 6502? Or did other architectures also use it?

Thanks to everybody out there for making today's livestream of ZeroPage Homebrew the most watched episode in the show's history!! (Yes, even more than the live unboxing of the Retron 77)

 

You rock, thank you so much for your continued enthusiasm and support for the show. It just keeps getting better and better because of all of you! 1f642.png

Hi grafixbmp, I haven't covered that one! We've played the Dark Chambers to Gauntlet hack but not the one made from Haunted House.

 

Do you have a link for that? My searching hasn't come up with a result.

 

IMHO Gauntlet is one of the best most thorough hacks of haunted houseive seen.you've probably already covered it though.

I think he meant hack of "Dark Chambers". The only other Gauntlet for the 2600 is the one released by Answer Software.

I have just placed an order for an UnoCart and we will be debuting the very first (I believe) UnoCart exclusive game in an upcoming livestream! This WIP game has not been publicly announced anywhere so stay tuned for more details!

So anyway...

 

I thought I'd give Twitch a try. I created an account and then it offered suggestions of categories to try. I chose "Retro" and here's the channel that came up...

I like how he's the self-proclaimed "video game player of the century"...

Yes. Here is the link to Greg's post on [stella].

 

But if I read the post correctly, the 8K version might be the most complex one (not the SC version as I thought).

Dark Mage Supercharger (1997) (Greg Troutman).bin

Great Pac-Man show!

Funny how the terrible Atari Pac-Man changed millions of minds that the Monsters were ghosts.

I believe it is because “a ghost is transparent and invisible sometimes” describes what is in Atari’s version!

 

 

Boo! Scared you!
