Who is the video animator?  Nice idea with the combination lock.

Thanks so much! I was the animator for the video. 🙂

Trying to crack the combination here.

 

40-number lock:

32-29-0

 

100-number lock:

79-74-0

 

Am I close?

 

(It does spin past 0 when dialing in the final number, so I'm probably looking for something that isn't there.)

So very close!!

Spoiler

Sadly the combination doesn't mean anything, I matched the movement more to the sound effects but I should have made some sort of secret code out of it! Next time...

It'll be a lot of fun but I'm also looking forward to seeing everyone again at the upcoming retro expo events!

Will there be virtual badges for "attendees"? 🙂

YES! I couldn't help but make one after you suggested it, hahah!

 

I've attached a photoshop format version where you (or someone you know with photoshop) can type in your own name and location to print out. 🙂

I have nothing against anyone here and do not wish to make any enemies, although this will surely upset some people.  Maybe I'm not seeing it the right way but I have to say it.

 

Why the [email protected]#$% would I want to tune into a live stream to watch an unboxing of games I've been waiting on that I purchased MONTHS ago?

 

This is no slight to Al or anyone.  I fully understand the difficulty Al has had and I have been patient and not worried about it at all.  He's a good man and I have full trust and confidence in him.  But dang, it's like getting sand kicked in my eye or something.  I just think it's in bad taste to do this before the games are shipped out to everyone.  Call me whatever.  Maybe I'm completely wrong here, but that's the way it feels to me. 

 

Regardless, I still like you all.

The plan was always to have this AtariAge Day on ZeroPage Homebrew before everyone received their games.  It was pushed out quite a bit as a direct result of it taking much longer than anticipated to get these games out the door.  And I am busting my ass right now to build these games to get them out, and will continue to do so until everything has been shipped.  Then I am taking a damn vacation.

It's okay, nobody is obliged to watch the stream. 🙂 You can pretend it never happened and enjoy the games you ordered when they arrive.

You really should try to delegate more work.

It's really not that simple a problem.  But having new 2600/7800 shells will go a long way towards making this a faster process.  There are some other things I'm working on as well that will help speed up physical production of games.  Although those issues really had nothing to do with the delays in getting everything printed, which was a damn nightmare this time around.  I've certainly learned some lessons here.

Well whatever you do, don't buy them from this place.

 

I don't know anything about the reliability of the sellers, but I keep hearing their shells don't fit in 7800s very well.

There was no PRGE last year, and there won't be one this year, either. It sounds like a cool way to try to do the closest thing to an AtariAge booth until we get to have new games unveiled at events like that again. And no orders were put on pause to make it happen, so I don't personally see any downside to it.
