Back to the Intellivision
I decided to get the Intellivision out of the garage because itís been cold and I wanted to see if it still worked okay. Right now on the floor of my room is a Saturn, a Channel F, a GameCube, a Dreamcast, 2 Atari 2600s (I need to put one away), a 7800, an Intellivision 2, and an N64. So about half...

Vertical MAME pt 3
Thereís a saying which goes something like progress is seldom made in a straight line - which basically means you canít really anticipate what you need to do until youíve started. But if youíre wise youíll minimize your losses. For me that means spending time rather than , which is why I am...

A8 MMS - Measure Counter
I have yet to input music into the MIDI MUSIC SYSTEM (MMS) software and have it correct the first play through. I can hear the error as it is played but MMS gives no indication of which measure it might be in. One solution requires an Arduino, MIDI shield with a THRU port, and numeric display. ...

700 arcade games
Several years ago I rescued a number of old 4:3 LCD monitors my employer was discarding, including several particularly nice 20 1600x1200 Dell 2007 FP. My plan was to use them to create vertical monitor MAME cabinets. But having learned from past projects, I resisted doing anything on the...

Xybort (part 4)
This morning I worked on Xybort. I added an enemy ship to shoot at. I also added some custom sound effects. Next, Iím going to work on the enemy ship to move. But I guess this isnít going to be a very thrilling game. It needs something. Iím wondering whether I should add stuff to not shoot at that...

Xybort (part 3)
Began work on the main game. I had quite the problem with the title screen code when I updated it to make it go to the in-game bank. But I think I fixed it. But it took an extra hour or so trying to figure out what was wrong, and I never did figure it out, but I did fix it. I made it so when fire...

Conversation with Mark Eyles about Bubsy 3
Some days ago, I asked Mark Eyles through E-mail about Bubsy 3. At first, he thought I meant Bubsy 3D. So he said that he wasnít involved in this and gave me a link to Bubsy 3D page. Then I explained to him more about it and he then understood me. He said, that he never worked on Bubsy franchise....

Xybort (part 2)
I finally got the score in the game. I went to sleep at about 11 a.m. and woke up at 9 p.m. And Iím still sleepy. Itís still just a title screen, but it occupies about 900 bytes. So if Iím using stuff like this all the time, the game itself has got to look fairly simple. I think Iíll make the enemy...

Odyssey 2...021
Spent the first few hours of the new year trying to work on an Odyssey 2 game. I introduced a new variable and then wanted to set it before the game started. So I started out with bank 3, which is where the Odyssey 2 starts out all roms. I got the keyboard semi working, but the switch to the other...

Iím still a little woozy from that doozy of an eye ache I had. Nevertheless, I decided to work on the fly swatting mini game in Frank the Fruit Fly. I forgot that when it comes up, you need to press A to start it. I was all how come I didnít make it so the hand moves? I thought I did. Then I...
