  1. Today
  2. Hi Shinto, I reviewed Super Burnout in a Member Blog post here at Atari.io some time ago. Here are my thoughts from that post. "Super Burnout is a solid if somewhat shallow racer. The game looks good, sounds good and controls well but it is otherwise very straightforward. Arcade-style time challenges, checkpoints and bike customization/upgrades may have done more to flesh out the game. As a technical achievement and an example of how the Jaguar handles 2D, Super Burnout is a showpiece. It's arguably the best racer on the system and is enjoyable in both single-player or versus mode. I hesitate to call it a "must-have" but if you like sport bikes and racing games, it's well worth your time." Thanks for reading!
  3. Just so you guys don't think I'm dead (because of no posts lately) -- although I'm sure @MaximumRD would respectfully report on it if I was, there's a new project I've been working on.  Restoration of a 2003 Subaru.  It's got a water leak (which makes it smell bad), and needs some engine work.  But I'm having FUN with it.  My father was an auto mechanic.  It feels good to get the hands dirty.

    AND...I got a NEW JOB!  I start next week.  Should be lower stress.  I hope.

      No posts from me lately because I couldn't get to this site as Firefox blocked me.

       

      More importantly, congratulations on your new job! I hope it leads to less stress & more compensation.

       

      Also, good luck with your Subaru restoration.

  4. Yesterday
  5. I don't have a Jaguary, never did. I had four Amigas over the years but never got Theme Park. But I still loved this episode!
  6. Last week
  7. <iframe width="1004" height="753" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/BqbQVO9m01w" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> Novawolf is now available on cartridge for the Atari 8-bit and Atari 5200. Works on all Atari 8-bit computers. 400/800 with 16K to 64K XL/XE systems. Novawolf brings challenging and intense game action to the Atari 8-bit computer and 5200. Have to collect tiles with four enemy shooters on all four sides shooting bullets at you. Can play as yourself or play with two players. Each level has a different shape, can include minds and walls you need to avoid. Also can have a moving asteroids or alien craft. Game options let you play against two or four enemy shoots, 45 or 90 degree turn movements, turning the back grid on or off. turn walls, minds, and enemy ships on or off.
  8. Part 2 for the Toyshock International LTD 3/4 scale Haunted House Pinball Machine
  9. (Willie!) Giving the Blaze 12 in 1 mini Pong a try
  10. I am not sure how many here program using the 7800 Basic. RevEng done a good job with some recent updates. I figured out most stuff. I cannot exactly go over to the other forum for help right now. Have to go by if someone posted about a similar issue. What has gave me a lot of delays with older versions was "unresolved symbol" list and the compiler not showing what it was. Very frustrating. I put the 7800 games aside in favor of doing more 8-bit and 5200 stuff. The other stumbling block was converting MADS assembler to DASM. Being case sensitive and acculumular not being represented with a @ (ASL @) made it difficult to port code from the 8 bit version. I made some progress with trying to get one complete game that I can use as a template for others. I have graphics for the sprites for 2 games. PNG images. Maybe do more as I figure more stuff out.

      That episode "Charlie X" is one of my favorites.  I've always thought Charlie's benefactors and the Trelaine aliens are probably "Q".  

  11. Found a shelf at goodwill today to put most of my sega genesis stuff on
  12. (Willie!) Thanks to my Co-Host Matt for bringing this to our attention I am loving this game!
  13. Playin' some spooky video pinball on Toyshock International LTD 12 in 1 3/4 scale mini pinball machine! (I had this in my game cave for a whole 30 minutes, then it was confiscated by the wife for her room :P, although i did buy it for here so...)
  14. Earlier
  15. After a lengthy build time, the gates to the Atari Jaguar Game by Game Podcast episode on Theme Park are open! Inside, you'll find, surprisingly, the longest episode to date. And despite the Park Advisor's objections, admission is free! Coming up in the next episode we'll be covering fan favorite racing game Super Burnout. Please post any opinions, reviews, or feedback here, in a PM, or sent (as text or audio file) to jaguar@gamebygamepodcast.com. Thanks!
  16. Another "charming" game on the Odyssey 2! Pachinko!
  17. Same here. It was looking good for a few weeks but not the past few days.
  18. Not sure why, but it's gotten worse for me. Now I am seeing the warning everywhere on the forum when using Chrome on my desktop.
  19. Thank you for the positive reception for the release of this game. Awhile ago, I seen some posts that there had not been anything like "Solar Fox" ported to the Atari 8 bit. Just about every other system had a Solar Fox, but not the 8-bit. For the last year I had it under the working title "Quantum Fox" but some felt we needed to bring something new to the table with some differences. Some levels have an extra asteroid or alien space crafts. Some levels have impassable ways and minds you need to avoid. Many game options. Can play with enemy shooters on all four sides or just have them at the top and bottom. Play 45 or 90 degree directional. Play with 2 players at the same time.
  20. Checking out the Arcade1UpOfficial Pac-Man PartyCade my wife got me
  21. Checking out the LGB 4049 Work Caboose
  22. Awesome! I see this one making it as one of Justin's Squad Challenges.
  23. Battlin' the evil Robotron's on the Atari Lynx!
  24. I've beaten a few games this year...here is what I can remember right off the top of my head: - ION Fury This past weekend - The Outer Worlds (PS4) this past weekend - Odin Sphere (PS4) - Borderlands 1 & 2 GOTY (PC) for the 2nd time now - Song of the Deep (PS4) - Grim Fandango (PS4) - ToeJam and Earl: Back in the Groove (PS4) - Uncharted 4 (PS4) - Doom 2016 (PS4) - Horizon Zero Dawn (PS4) That is all I can recall off the top of my head for this year. While it does appear that the PS4 gets all the attention based on this list, it still doesn't get played as much as my Genesis and Atari systems do. But most of those games do not have actual endings...LOL.
  25. 😮😢RIP Iconic Star Trek Writer Dorothy “D.C.” Fontana Passes Away at 80

  26. Back the Grid to build a poster out of the Tron Trading Cards from the early 80's!
  27. In ITC#64 I talk about a common issue that plagues many Sega Saturn gamers today. That issue is none other than the gave save juggling required between external game save carts and the Saturn when the internal coin cell battery goes dead. Sure you can change the battery, but aside from Dreamcast VMUs, the Saturn has to be one of the most hungry 2032 battery eaters that exists. In this video I show you that this can be remedied by removing the old battery backed sram memory chip that the games save are stored onto, with the use of a non-volatile ferroelectric or FRAM memory chip instead. This mod doesn't take long to do, but as the chip is semi small and an SMD device, this isn't something I'd advise for beginners. Still an inexpensive and very worthy/needed upgrade to the Sega Saturn. Enjoy and thank you in advance for watching!
