    Comparing 7800 with SNES

    The 7800 is a very flexible system. It's not limited to the processors it has been given (6502, TIA, MARIA, RIOT). It's memory can be expanded upon through the cartridge as can it's sound abilities. I'm betting if more time was taken that cartridge slot could also handle an additional CPU to work along side the 6502. The 7800 is limited only by the imagination and willingness of the person developing for it. And I also bet that, with a little bit of reworking, the 7800's sound abilities and expansions could handle a different sound processor besides POKEY. The SNES is an OK system but still suffers from some slowdown issues on some games when too much is going on onscreen at one time...something the 7800 doesn't have a problem with. The original Top Gear is my favorite. Spent a lot of hours on that one.

    My First Atari Computer!

    I've wanted an XEGS for a long time. I thought I had one too, when several years ago I bought one for a good price on ebay...until the seller refunded me my money to relist it and get more money. Fast forward to today. Recently I stumbled on a lot that included a bunch of games. The price was too good for me to pass up. So now it's mine! Feel free to recommend cartridge games. (I only plan to collect carts, excluding multi-carts)

    My house is burning down

    Another update. Insurance got with Dad today. We're getting $70k for everything. Well, everything but my collection. Alas, it wasn't factored into the payout, so I'm on my own with rebuilding. However, the fine folks over at RFGeneration have announced that they're starting a drive to chip in and help out, and I feel so grateful.

    Quick thoughts: The graphics are really nice Sounds are fine. I like the PP theme music. Well done Several screens! And they are pretty varied in the gameplay. Controls. Well...it is a prototype I guess. The jumping is very difficult to master. They should have skipped the tail wag and made the button jump. Overall: Fun! It's so cool that this came to light after all these years.

    I found this Rick. Armored Bullies (200 points each) Bullets cannot hurt them. Push them off the road by ramming their side. Best if you ram their front wheel with your back wheel. They will try to do the same to you. Oil and smoke can knock them off the road Description:Wide and fat Tireslasher (200 points) Can be shot by bullets or caused to veer off the road and die with oil and smoke blasts. DO NOT let them get to your side, as they have tireslashers to cause your tires to slash and spin off the road and crash. Description:Small and has white tireslashers sticking out where the hubcaps are supposed to be. Limo (500 points) These guys will get to your side and shoot at you with a pistol. It doesn't always hit, but if it does, you will get shot and spin off the road. Also use oil and smoke on them if they are behind you. Description:Very long and has a pistol pointing out the window at you usually Helicopter (700 points) Will drop bombs on the road. They will produce craters which can destroy you if you drive over it. Description:A white helicopter Stop in the road and line yoruself up with the helicopter and it won't drop bombs...Then release a missile if you got one. Otherwise, just keep going and dodge the bombs and their resulting craters. Crater:A large hole in the road made by the bombs. These will cause you to fall in and crash. Description:A small hole in the road about 1/4 the size of your car Boathouse:Eventually you will see one of these near a lone bridge. Drive into it! Description:A building next to the river that is about 4 1/2 times wider than your car Torpedo Tube boat (200 points):Releases Torpedo tubes, or the water eqivalent of a land mine...DO NOT carelessly tailgate it.. Bullets can kill it. Description:A large blue boat that travels rather slowly dropping Torpedo Tubes

    I'm very sorry for your lose, but I encourage you to see what the policy says. Many policies cover contents to a certain amount, and that could include your game collection. You would most likely have to submit a list, and perhaps itemize value too (I'd recommend pricecharting.com for older stuff). It might take a little work, but it could pay out in the end.

    Congratulations btbfilms76! Congratulations @btbfilms76 on your fantastic score! I hope you guys enjoyed checking out Ghouls 'N Ghosts on Sega Genesis! This was a tough one! I was happy to see you guys jumping into this challenge even though there was some emulation required that you may not have had set up. You guys posted some seriously impressive scores on a very challenging Single Life Run. @btbfilms76 posted a score of 15,700 points before the cutoff time last Saturday night, @Control Issues was right on his tail taking 2nd place on the board with a score of 12,400 points, @RickR took the 3rd position with his A-game of 6,700 points played during a busy work week, and @Atari Creep rounds things out with an impressive 5,400 points. Congrats to everyone who jumped in to play in this squad challenge and shared a score! Note: We've changed our schedule to accommodate for a horrific Halloween Squad Challenge coming up for the later half of October! Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be for the Mattel Intellivision! GHOULS 'N GHOSTS SINGLE LIFE RUN FINAL STANDINGS 1 BTBFILMS76 15,700 2 CONTROL ISSUES 12,400 3 RICKR 6,700 4 ATARI CREEP 5,400 Here's something unexpected: BTB and Atari Creep went into OVERTIME and continued playing the Squad Challenge into Sunday and Monday after the cutoff time (11:59 PM PST, Saturday, September 14th) and ended up posting their best scores. Both btbfilms76 and Atari Creep did livestream events on their Instagram and YouTube channels playing this game and showing how it's done in Ghouls 'N Ghosts. In the spirit of friendly competition I’m adding these scores in a 2nd section called “Extra Credit”. It would be fun to see these two dudes duke it out and keep this alive in the Scoreboard, I'd like to encourage @btbfilms76 and @Atari Creep to post their new high scores on the Scoreboard, and maybe this Challenge can continue on! And don't forget to check out BTB and Atari Creep on YouTube and Instagram! EXTRA CREDIT 1 BTBFILMS76 18,100 2 ATARI CREEP 15,000

    Ah thanks Justin, sorry I honestly did not see Arenafoot's posting. DOH! Well, just shows we all want to make sure everyone is informed and aware! My understanding though just to update is it is NOT playable on a Harmony Cart? At least a couple people over on AA said it is a no go. Still, emulation is fine and cool to finally be able to experience a game most of us never would have otherwise. 🍻

    I thought I would be able to return sooner but that didn’t happen due to all of the non-gaming stuff which consumed my daily schedule. I then decided that I wouldn’t return until I was sure I could do so without rescheduling/canceling. Life has slowed down to where I can return to retro gaming and return to Twitch with a new episode of Retro With Marco! I hope you will join me this Tuesday, October 15 at 9pm ET / 6pm PT when I will have the following: - High score and speedrun shoutouts - The Toshiba Pasopia & the recent tape dumps - A quick look at Arkandenoid for the C64 My plan for the show is to return to the bi-weekly schedule but I will keep everyone updated here, on Discord, and on other social media. https://twitch.tv/retrowithmarco See you then!

    Comparing 7800 with SNES

    Hi everyone... Today I was looking at some stuff on the SNES via the Internet and ran into this game called "Top Gear 3000"... It's a typical racing game, but the game engine is very fast due to a co-processor on the cartridge to draw the roads on the fly. When I looked at the game play, it reminded me of the Atari 7800 game "Motor Psycho" where you race these tracks and even find yourself flying in the air when you hit a ramp. I was thinking the 7800, although not as fast as the SNES with a co-processor, really does hold its own when comparing both games.

    Thanks so much! I am working as quickly as I can to get it out to you guys. :3 The list is ever dwindling. :3 Oh really neat! I would love to see what you could come up with though once you get more time. I know what you mean though. I work full time, go to university full time, and raise my family so I have only a few hours a week to work on the game bleh. At least it is nearing completion. I just have the last few levels and the final boss to complete and it is done! Plenty of updates, though yes 2 years since the last demo. I was going to release an intermediary demo, but I am within the finish line of finishing the game so I figured let me just push and try to get it out as soon as I can.
