Hit! Hit hard on Colecovision

Posted by Serguei2 in Robin Gravel's Blog, 17 March 2019 · 39 views

I worked on my GOOMW today.
 
I managed to tell the player hit 5 times to the enemy to beat down.
 
 
I used this formula: if x player and x enemy is less than 16 pixels, punch it!   
 
I would use check_collision but I decided my method is better.   

YOU ARE IN MY WAY! TAKE THAT!
 

Defeated. I hope he le...

Tunnel Runner (CBS)

Posted by DoctorSpuds in DoctorSpuds Reviews Things, 17 March 2019 · 47 views

Tunnel Runner (CBS) While reviewing London Blitz I recall mentioning Tunnel Runner several times as a maze game that did it right, so it seems only fitting that I go in depth as to why I think so. Tunnel Runner is the hardest game to find from CBS Electronics but is well worth it. I found something quite touching actually with this game, I got lucky and snagged a cart with t...

Captain Marvel - Spoiler-free review

Posted by Nathan Strum in (Insert stupid Blog name here), 16 March 2019 · 86 views
Movies

Marvel has a knack for making superhero movies. And by knack, I mean they've pretty-much got it figured out. Of course, when you think about it, they probably should by now. But nothing is a given.
 
I should note here I'm talking about the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies, not Marvel movies made by Sony or 20th Century Fox. Those have been,...

Follow the bouncing ball

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 16 March 2019 · 38 views

Follow the bouncing ball For the past couple of hours and last night before I went to sleep, I was trying to get the ball bouncing around the screen in my new JezzBall -inspired game. You'd think such a thing would be relatively easy, but no. It came down to this. When the ball hits the border, it either goes two ways. For 4 borders, 2 x 4 =8. I needed 8 different lines of code t...

Beneath Apple Manor

I was reading Dungeon Hacks , by David L. Craddock, the other day and found a short reference to the Atari 8-bit in the chapter on the first Rogue-like, Beneath Apple Manor :
 
For Beneath Apple Manor Special Edition , I reverse engineered the 6502 runtime environment for the Galfo Integer BASIC compiler and ported it to 8086 machines (IBM PC). Bob C...

Powershell to set clock on SonyEricsson phone via Bluetooth

Posted by OLD CS1 in OLD CS1's Blog, 11 March 2019 · 47 views

Powershell to set clock on SonyEricsson phone via Bluetooth SonyEricsson's PC Suite had a nice feature which would synchronize your phone's clock to your PC's clock when establishing a connection.  I found more often than not my frequently-synchronized computer time differed by a minute or more from the Cingular/AT&T network time.
 
(quick bitching about Sony)
SonyEricsson discontinued the PC Suite (...

Ultima 3 Musings

Posted by Karl G in Karl's Blog, 10 March 2019 · 59 views

I've recently started playing the PC version Ultima III: Exodus via DOSBox with an upgrade patch to allow for EGA graphics and midi music to more closely match the colors and music of the original on other platforms.  The PC version out of the box uses CGA graphics and has no music.
 

 

 
This was my introduction to the seri...

2K19 Galveston Cruise

Posted by SpiceWare in SpiceWare's Blog, 10 March 2019 · 85 views

Tesla Club of Greater Houston took part in 2K19 Galveston Cruise today that was hosted by Texas Infamous .  Groups came from Austin and San Antonio (and possibly DFW).
 
In preparation I did a Trip Charge this morning, which is charging the car to 100%.  For daily use you should only charge to 90% or less as it's not good for the batt...

All the world's cats...

Posted by BuckoBrand in My life, 10 March 2019 · 44 views

All the world's cats... Cats. Cats are supreme. They always know how to work themselves into the deepest chambers of our heart. But, sometimes, they can be mean. Like, in my favorite show, a cat says: "I plot your destruction while you sleep." Lol. Anyway, cats. Cats can be silly or serious. Or, they can be absolutely hilarious. Like, for example, Grumpy Cat. I mean, look up Gru...

Mame, Pi zero, arcade, DIY

Keep in mind, though the cost is fairly low for the parts, much of my time and energy went into research for the most efficient (i.e. cost effective) way to connect and power everything. I really didn’t want a bunch of different power supplies for all the different piece of the build. 
 
The monitor is the key to the whole system. The main...

Why I like High Score Club

Posted by Nuclear Pacman in Ablogalypse Now, 07 March 2019 · 43 views

I can't be the only gamer that has trouble deciding what game to play. That's the downside to having such a large collection of games. In the board gaming lexicon, there is a term for people who take excessive amounts of time to take their turn. It's called 'analysis paralysis' and I suffer from that when it comes to picking out a game to play or a movie...

VOL. III, ISSUE III
 
When a coworker approached me about two and a half months ago asking if I would compose the music for his video game, I was skeptical. After all, I had never seen a serious development project. Upon looking into it, however, I discovered that his ideas are full of potential and his drive to get thing...

Been a while since I posted here.  I've been suffering a bit of a creative block lately, but I've been forcing myself to keep moving forward on this project.
