That's a password save function. You can finish the levels in whichever order you like, and obtain a password for your progress.

Yes, you can rewind your move. Either press the select button, or the button on controller #2.

No accessory is needed. When you have been given a password from "Outcode", you can enter that password in "Incode" and it will resume state of level completions.

Download the ZIP file that is the first post in the thread and read the PDF manual and the extra README.TXT file as it will explain what everything does.

Hi @chavert! I just downloaded the game (NTSC version) through the link, loaded it onto my Harmony Encore cart and it played successfully on my console. We also streamed the same version of the game on the show last night and it played fine as well. I also just tried the PAL and PAL60 versions through Stella and both of them loaded and played correctly.

 

The copies of the .bin files through the link were also used by the Nomination Committee for evaluation for the event without any issues. Can you specify how exactly the binary is failing and what you're using to run it? I want to make sure that there isn't a problem with the files.

I use an atari 7800 pal with harmony cartridge or harmony encore.

The game does not work or has a bug during a game.

The problem must be that it doesn't work well on atari 7800 pal

 

yes with an atari vcs console the ntsc game works well

How does it not work? Does it work and then crash? Have you tried both the PAL and PAL60 versions?


The game was tested on an Atari 7800 NTSC and did work fine.

Pitkat received awards at the 3rd Annual Atari Homebrew Awards show, hosted by Zeropage Homebrew. It received 2nd for Best Port (overall), 3rd for Best Graphics (Port), and 3rd for Music & Sound (Port) categories.

It was enchanting to be second to the outstanding Zoo Keeper port by Champ games. It was a neck to neck battle for 2nd and 3rd place with the amazing Tower of Rubble port. The awesome Robot City came in 4th in this category but managed to win 1st place in the under 4K category. Well done to the other port nominees alongside us - Blipsketball, Midspace and Avalanche.

 

A big thankyou to the Atariage members who voted for Piktat and to the sponsors of the Atari Homebrew awards - Zeropage Homebrew, Atariage, Argon and The Atari 2600 Homebrew Companion.

Hi All,


The R3 version of Pitkat has been released. It is available at the top of the forum.

 

Release Notes

 

R3 2021-03-31
1. New graphic engine to remove horizontal and vertical gaps. 
2. Adjustments of tiles to become 8 pixels wide (instead of 7). Kats have longer tails!
3. Adjustments of tiles to mesh vertically without a gap.
4. Adjustment of bitmapped backgrounds to take advantage of the new graphics engine
5. Simplification of floor graphic during gameplay.

 

Marco J.

@MarcoJ I've said it once and I'll say it again. PitKat is amazing and shows what this humble system is capable of. PitKat and Robomechanik are the two best puzzle homebrews for the system.

I liked the gaps... I "added" them to my own tenliner version for the A8:

I used them to center images the 7x7 tiles.

lol. Do I see Grogu there? Yes the gaps do help convey separation for monochrome coloured objects side by side and also vertically. In Pitkat R3 I've made character objects and ladders still 7px wide, which yes does leave them off centre. The move to gapless helps the soil/concrete and bitmaps gel together moreso than the characters. 

 

Cheers

Marco

I somewhat prefer the gaps in the actual game. But the title and selection screens look distinctly better gapless.

 

Regardless, it's a fantastic game.

I've been very happy to play around 20 levels on my a2600 (pal / secam) back on my tv with a unocart.

This is a great puzzle game
