Atari Gamer articles

Recommended Posts

I've been running Atari Gamer, a website focusing on Atari Lynx history and news, since January 2018 but it hasn't been until recently that I've got into a regular schedule of article posts. At the moment I'm limiting to one article a week, released on a Monday. I'm starting this thread to announce new articles as they become available.

 

Any feedback, comments, article suggestions are very welcome. I hope you all enjoy reading some fresh new content about Atari Lynx!

 

Last week's article was - Behind the scenes - making of the 48 in 1 Atari Lynx multicart.

I'm also working with Mark aka MillipedeMan with promoting his Lynx Handycast.

looks like an extened version from karris flashcard from 15 years ago...

 

 

As far as I know he's made it on his own but I could be wrong. I've not seen Karri's flashcart. It's a neat design though, he packed it full of demo and prototype games for me too, need to spend a couple of days trying them all out. Kinda wish I added the VGA output to my Lynx when I modded it so I could record everything...perhaps that's a project for a weekend coming :)

That card is not my design. I have a faint memory that we had discussions in the past and I may have sent him some of my findings. But putting such a large number of chips on a card and really get it to work is great!

I've been sending Atarimania all manner of odds n sods for their WIP Lynx section, but no idea when that area of the site will actually go live..

 

Your more than welcome to have it,if it can help your site in anyway as well.

All being well you should of received an email with bit of background info on audio side of Lynx hardware, 2 of it's best games, audio wise and attempts that failed to bring a certain series from the PC to Lynx.

 

 

That's all i am going to have for now.

 

The remaining material (scans) i sent Atarimania months ago reside on a memory stick at my place somewhere..

Zaku will always stay with me, for the drama at the time over the review RetroGamer magazine gave to it at the time, in terms of score...73% and space devoted to the review.

 

The magazine was labelled a joke, a disgrace etc.

 

I know there's no such thing as bad publicity, but it did seem to be a classic storm in a teacup.

 

Thanks for putting the preview up. .hadn't seen it prior to this.
