Team Pixelboy News Bulletin - January 1st 2021

Recommended Posts

Hello.

 

I have 2 questions regarding the homebrew and SGM compatible game list :

 - Since, if I understood well, there is a lack of cartridge shell that limits the number of actual titles that can be sold, would it be possible to sell titles as dematerialized software (in other words sell the .ROM and provide a link to PDF to get user manual and overlays) ?

 - I thought (or was misinformed) there is a SGM version of Donkey Kong, is it true or not (or maybe announced but never release) ?

From your post count, it seems you're kinda new here, so a belated welcome. Most of my released titles are already available in ROM format. Just do a search on the forums using the keywords "Team Pixelboy News Bulletin" and look for bulletins dated December 25th, from 2013 to 2020. As far as manuals are concerned, I think it would be a flagrant turnaround on the main announcement made in first post of this thread if I started releasing PDFs of my manuals.

Team Pixelboy should not to be confused with Opcode Games. They are completely distinct entities.

You actually gave me a link to this thread in a email after I requested how to order some times from your website :-). Thanks.

I indeed have an AtariAge account for a while but do not post regulary...

I already did and downloaded some titles... for free. So I think I could pay for a title or two (or make a donation ?) since other customers paid for their cartridge.

It seems there is a hidden message here that says me to look at another place :-). Thanks for the tip.

 

Thanks for your beautilfull releases.

 

BTW : I live in France so I have a Colecovision console with a scart video cable (most certainly RGB) so I can better enjoy those beautifull games, SGM compliant or not 🙂

Nope, but I can recommend monitoring eBay and also Good Deal Games.

I'm sorry to say that the pre-order period for the Asteroids Controller is long past. Also, I've reached my limit of pre-orders for the Asteroids game. But anyhow, you can see pictures of the controller here:

Star Castle will likely be released on Christmas Day 2021. That's the plan for now anyhow.

 

To pre-order a copy, just send me an e-mail at pixelboy at teampixelboy dot com.

What's the status of BasicVision?   I try to keep a list of BASIC or BASIC-like compilers for consoles.  Thought I should ask as it has been awhile.

 

UPDATE:  Answered.  Thank you for the scoop! :)

Small update for those who are interested: After giving it some thought, I've decided to drop the Armor Attack project. I think I have enough on my plate for the remainder of the year without adding a new last-minute project to it.

 

If anyone out there wants to make his own version of Armor Attack, you'll get no objections from me.  :)
