Jaguar USB Tap: The agony (of hardware bugs) and the ecstacy (of firmware)

Posted by dgrubb in Hacking with Atari, 24 December 2017 · 129 views

Development environment  To start writing code for our STM32F07 series uC via an ST-Link programmer (embedded in a cheap Nucleo board, see previous entries) all we need are a few easy to obtain tools: a C compiler (although Rust is becoming more interesting as an embedded language), a debugger and a tool for handling communication with the uC over th...

Published: 1995 by Atari
Developed: Beyond Games 2D arcade fighting games were incredibly popular in the mid-90s and console gamers wanted that experience at home. Unfortunately, with the notable exception of Primal Rage for the Jaguar CD, Atari's 64-bit console lacked conversions of well known arcade titles like Mortal Kombat and St...

Character Rendering Ideas for Jaguar Sidescroller

Posted by Clint Thompson in Cerca Trova, 04 December 2016 · 157 views

Seeing as how fast it is to create photo realistic renders in about 30 seconds per frame, I figured it would be interesting to attempt a very short animation of a female character, meant for possibly a sidescroller:

Please Allow Me to Ramble

Posted by StormSurge in Living In The Past, 21 October 2016 · 298 views

My apologies in advance for this post. You may think this is a strange place for this but I can't think of another outlet for it and I can make an Atari connection. ;) My stepfather is dying. Quickly. I'm not even sure if he's technically my stepfather, but he might as well be. Growing up, I hated him. I realize hate is a strong word but I HATE...

Posted by leolinden in leolinden's Blog, 17 April 2015 · 519 views

I've been playing the Atari a lot lately. I got some games from a comic store that sells used games. My favorite so far has to be Robot Tank. The reason being, it is amazing in the aspect that it is 3Dish. I can't wait to get more games for the 2600. What's a game you guys recommend?

The next episode of MythBusters takes on Doom

Posted by Fire_In_The_Valley in Fire In The Valley, 26 January 2015 · 245 views

The next episode of Discovery Channel's MythBusters — the show in which rumors, urban legends and myths are tested with a scientific approach — will explore an aspect of video games that most first-person shooter fans take for granted. The question the show will attempt to answer is: "Is it possible for someone to lug around...
