Man I'm super saddened by this.. there are just a few people on AA I feel an affinity with or feel like I "know", and Nukey was one of them. He was there from the start of this whole AA experience spanning the 2 decades. Anyway, although many of you might predictably mock this, it doesn't matter to me: He is 100% in my prayers.

I do not believe mocking people that pray or people that died.

 

 People that mock other people for praying is a disrespectful move to put it mildly. People mocking deaths is disrespectful also. I've prayed plenty of times including those in life threatening situations.

 

Praying is normal including for what you did for Nukey Shay.

Could we get a sticky as a tribute containing all of his hacks? His work should live on :)

The moment I read the title of the thread, my heart sank. I really enjoyed all the stuff Nukey has made, such as Pac-Man 8K, Hack 'em, Pac-Man Arcade Enhanced, Galaxian - Expanded, Space Invaders Deluxe, and even Ms. Hack. I played them a lot on various emulators and even the Atari Flashback Portable console. RIP Nukey, I hope you are in a better place now. Thank you for being one of the best Atari 2600 hackers of all time.

I keep him alive almost daily with Pac-Man 8K. My absolute favorite Homebrew and most likely always will be. Rest in peace Nukey, and thank you for relighting a spark of my childhood for me...

I've been away from the forums for a while, so I'm just now catching up on some news.  Very sad to see this.  Not only were his hacks extraordinary, so was his willingness to help others, including me, discover the magic of hacking Atari games.  My prayers to his family and friends.  To all of us.
