    Dug this up just now and thought this might make for something different. Post a photo / picture / image that you are in showing something silly, fun, retro etc. I'll kick off with this one - Here's me at 16 getting a promo Polaroid picture before seeing JAWS. Honestly, I love this shot and there is as far as I am concerned only one embarrassing thing about it, IT WAS FOR JAWS 3 ! 😂🙄

Everybody hates a cheater. More To review detailed rules on how to play, please visit the High Score Squad page here: Message Welcome to our 81st Squad Challenge, and our second DOUBLE FEATURE! This is going to be a fun one, guys. Astrosmash and Astroblast are essentially the same game published by Mattel for two of our favorite systems: Intellivision and Atari 2600. Yes, both games differ from each other slightly, with Astroblast playing slightly faster. Scoring, however, is the same. Both games share the same scoring formula, so hitting a big rock on the first level gets you 10 points in Astrosmash, the same way it gets you 10 points in Astroblast. Do you perform better in one game and not the other? Is the 2600 joystick what you score best at, but you fumble with the Intellivision controllers? You can play either or both games. Intellivision or 2600? Choose your weapon of choice! Scores from both systems will be combined into ONE Final Standings scoreboard. Playing across two systems will make this Squad Challenge more accessible to members who want to join in, and making this challenge a Double Feature adds an interesting twist. Let's make this a fun one! Astrosmash was originally conceived when an Intellivision game in development called Meteor!, an Asteroids clone, did not fill up the ROM space of an entire cartridge. The extra space was used to create a variation of the game called Avalanche! The Meteor! game was cancelled at the last minute, due to concerns that it was too similar to Asteroids. Programmer John Sohl programmed a "branch" around the opening-screen menu, leading directly to the Avalanche! variation, retitled Astrosmash. The games were compatible, since they were designed together, and used the same sprites and sound effects. In rare instances, if the console's reset button is pressed rapidly, an error can occur, resulting in the game starting in the original Meteor! format. Games and Instruction Booklets for both versions are provided below. I hope you guys are ready for a new season of High Score Squad and good luck to everybody participating! NOTE: Another great Squad Challenge is coming up soon! Thanks for playing, and enjoy! Astrosmash.pdf Astrosmash.int Astroblast.pdf Astroblast.bin

    In my honest opinion Atari should have released the 5200 games they had completed even when they stopped 5200 production. The games they had could have been the grand finale because Atari had some fabulous games they had worked hard on finished, or appeared finished, and would have given the 5200 games no other console had. Super Pac-Man Jr. Pac-Man Millipede Sinistar All of those games I remember playing in emulation during the early 2000s when I first discovered emulators. What I played blew my mind. The sounds on all games were spot on with the arcades and all of them played very well. These four should have been released. It definitely wouldn't have hurt Atari to try because these games were very well done. No other console received Super Pac-Man or Sinistar so those could have been seen as 5200 exclusives. It's a shame they couldn't milk the 5200 for what they could. Any new Atari 8-bit games could have been easily converted to the 5200 and, BOOM!, you have two releases, side by side, to make money from. That's what I would have done.

    Congratulations RadioPoultry! Congratulations @RadioPoultry! RadioPoultry's score ran away with the top spot on the scoreboard! I hope everyone enjoyed getting into Desert Falcon on Atari 7800. Desert Falcon is a unique 7800 game that adds Egyptian motifs and deeper strategy to Zaxxon-style gameplay. Some of the color choices throw me off or feel limited, but overall I think this game looks really good on the 7800 and is a fun play. RadioPoultry takes the 1st Place spot with a mind boggling score of 211,094. Incredible! RadioPoultry, you gotta tell us more about this "walking around" strategy! @atarilbc takes 2nd Place with a terrific score of 53,125, and @btbfilms76 came with his A-Game, claiming 3rd Place in our Final Standings for this Squad Challenge with 38,064 points. @RickR, @TrekMD, @Gianna, and @Atari Creep great showings, and hopefully had a fun time playing in this challenge. Congratulations to everybody on an exciting run, and to everyone who joined in this Squad Challenge and shared a score! I'd like to encourage RadioPoultry to post his new high score on the Scoreboard, and let's make sure this Challenge continues on! NOTE: Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be an Atari 2600 / Intellivision Double Feature! Be there!

    When I got my DS in 2016 I quickly became addicted to Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Any free time I had I would play it. In early 2018 I became burnt out and no longer had that desire to play, it felt like it became a chore. The other day I got an urge to play again, so I charged up my DS and inserted the game. After not playing in so long I totally forgot what the game was like, despite playing it before all the time! Other DS games I really liked were Tomodachi Life, Nintendogs, Mario Kart, and Pokemon Sun. I know now not to get so into a game that it eventually feels like a chore and is no longer fun. I did the same thing with Sims 3. I want start playing games on my DS again. I still have that "burnt out" feeling for ACNL but the others I enjoyed I look forward to getting back into. Anyone else ever played something so often it almost became a "chore" to play any longer, or was no longer fun? If so, what game was it?

    Check in time! How are you doing? 2020 has been difficult to say the least. And now, with COVID cases spiking again in the USA, it feels like there's no light at the end of this tunnel. But know this: You have friends here. It's a small group, but we can help each other feel better. Retro games are a great distraction! So let us know how you are doing, and what we can do to help.

    How is everyone doing?

    I have been well. I can’t believe it is July. Time feels a bit weird since this all started, in early-mid March. I believe it was March 16 when my job had me (and nearly every employee) work from home. I really enjoyed that, and having such more time at home allowed me to get into an after work workout routine, which I still do now. Where I am in FL everything began reopening I think in early May. I ended up having to go back to going in to work May 11. Out of about 60 employees there was only 12 or so of us. Late June I was sent back home and luckily still have been, but I believe I’m going back for good in a week or so. This summer I started classes online towards my degree, so I have been quite busy with both work and school full time. I felt safe going to Universal late June as they had very strict guidelines and requirements (masks, temp. checks, etc), but in my town masks are not required and I’ve noticed people are wearing them less and less in stores. Spending so much time at home, when I am not working or doing school online, has made me realize I would like to find more interests and hobbies and I want to spend more time outside.

    How is everyone doing?

    Hey, guys, I'm hanging in there. We are under a heat advisory here in the Twin Cities Metro Area in Minnesota today. It is 87º F, but feels like 91º F. The humidity is up a little. So, I am at my computer in the basement, where it's cool. Cool it is, as well. I'm not breaking a sweat anymore. I perspire right away when I go outside. We are OK here. COVID-19 was concerning me a lot before, but I have not been sick with anything all year. Strangely enough. Proper hygiene helps. I always wash my hands for twenty seconds in a rich lather of Kirk's Castile Soap. It is a little expensive for soap, but it's worth the cost at about $4.00 a three-pack. I have been taking very good care of myself all year. I only go out when I need to, and then with a mask. It helps a lot. But, I am having a decent time, otherwise. I have been playing my video games, and trying to get a decent score with the Squad Challenge for Alex Kidd in Miracle World. So for, being it is a difficult game, I only scored at best 1,800 points. It is a challenge. For sure. But, as I stated, all is good. We are fine here and no one has been sick, which is a good thing. Thanks for letting me share. :O)

    How is everyone doing?

    I'm lucky enough to live where cases took a nosedive, probably because a huge chunk of the population goes along with the face covering mandate, ergo reducing the spread. Wife and I just spent an extended weekend in New Buffalo, MI. We stopped off in Michigan City, Indiana, on the way, and...well....Indiana is a "facemask recommended" state rather than a "facemask mandatory" state. Thankfully, most people in the store were wearing masks, and the store was big enough with wide enough aisles that keeping away from people who weren't wearing masks was doable. Michigan is a "facemask mandatory if your medical conditions allow you to wear one" state...which begs the question: if you have a medical condition that makes wearing a facemask a hindrance to your well-being...then why are you outside during a nasty pandemic? We'll see if I made it through unscathed in a couple of weeks! We've been planning a trip to San Diego. We were supposed to go in April, but of course, that didn't happen, so we rescheduled it for August. Now we have an issue: there's a Chicago mandate now that Chicago residents who fly into O'Hare or Midway from one of 15 states on a list, you are legally required to quarantine yourself for two weeks. California is on the list (even though cases in San Diego County are pretty low). You get fined something like $700 - $1000 per day you're not quarantined. Of course, what exactly they mean by quarantine, they don't say. (Do they mean stay in your house 24/7, not even go out to walk the dog? Stay home unless you have to go out to get food? etc.) And how exactly they're going to enforce that, nobody knows. They did say the list will be modified over time, and we're hoping California will fall off the list, but we're prepared to change our plans. I know it's for the good of everybody, theoretically, but it still sucks. What doesn't make sense is that here, bars are allowed to be open, but beaches are not, despite the fact that 1) Dr. Fauci himself said that one of the most dangerous things you can do right now is go drink at a bar, and 2) I've heard more than one medical expert say that aside from keeping yourself isolated, the safest place to be is in the water at the beach. Mind you, there are strict bar rules: once you get your drink, you are to leave the bar and go to a table, and there's a strict limit on the number of people allowed to be in the building. The common belief is that the reason bars are allowed to be open is so the city can collect the sales tax. But the thing is, almost all of the beaches have busy concession stands that could very well be providing tax dollars, but no. The rule is that everything east of Lake Shore Drive in Chicago is closed (except for the bike / pedestrian trail), which means there are full-service restaurants that aren't allowed to be open in addition to concession stands, independent ice cream vendors who can't sell their stuff, and at least two bike shops that can't be open. On top of all that, that means there are no lifeguards on duty making summer money, most of whom are minorities who could really use it. (Our mayor is black and claims to be on the side of minorities.) And no lifeguards on duty means that if someone ignores the "beach closed" mandate, goes swimming, and gets caught up in a rip current, there's no lifeguard to rescue that person. All the other beaches along Lake Michigan are open, but nope, the mayor won't reopen Chicago's. (Yet I'm still paying taxes that are supposed to allow me to use those beaches.) My wife was practically raised on the beach, and she's REALLY cheesed off about the whole thing. Speaking of my wife, she's kind of stressed because she's a teacher and is worried about the fall. It seems that all those in charge want schools to be open. Now...where I work, the word is we probably won't be going back to our building until some time in 2021. Just to give you an idea of where I work...my company's Chicago site takes up neatly two complete floors of a skyscraper. We have about 60 employees on site on both of those floors. (If you want to see the building I'm in, watch the opening credits of the later seasons of The Bob Newhart Show -- my building can be seen briefly about 45 seconds in! So you have an idea of how large and wide the building is.) Both our office manager and our parent company headquartered in Texas will not allow anybody to be in our office for more than 30 minutes at a time, and only one person at a time. Now...compare that to, say, 32 kids in one classroom. And my wife is diabetic, so that puts her at an increased risk. I told her if she's forced to teach in person in a classroom, I will pay to have a large Plexiglass barrier installed in her room. Other than that, though...I guess I'm okay. Now that I'm working from home, I like that I don't have a commute. Down side though is that means I don't bike the 7-9 miles to work and back every day, but I don't seem to have gained any weight. (My shorts from last year still fit without a problem!) And I really liked the strict stay-at-home order we head before because I'm an indoorsman anyway. 🙂 So far my wife and I are both healthy otherwise. Each of us knows someone who was diagnosed with COVID-19. One of her old college roommates ended up in the hospital with a torturous case of pneumonia as a result, but she's fine now. Former classmate of mine had it, but I believe he was asymptomatic; his wife is a physician's assistant who flew out to New York to help with their overcrowded hospitals. And one of my coworkers had it, too; she thinks she got it from her husband, who's a social worker. Thankfully, she's okay now, although apparently she was pretty miserable. Yeah, on paper, this thing has a high survival rate...but that's just it: survival. How many of those who survived actually came out of it 100% intact, with no long-lasting or permanent damage? We gotta keep each other safe, everybody.

    I might actually do this one if I get the time. I always liked the Alex Kidd games (even though I've played Enchanted Castle more often than I've played Miracle World).

    Here's the ROM file if anyone is looking for it. It's an interesting platformer. For me, the controls are just a little clunky and the hit detection a bit unforgiving. It's definitely not as refined as Super Mario Bros. but has a colorful and fun look. I'm not ready to post but I'm going to keep trying though! Good luck everyone!

    My Universal trip this weekend!

    This weekend I went to Orlando with my family. It was a great! On Saturday I went to Universal & Islands of Adventure. Currently it is required you wear a mask unless eating or drinking while in the parks. Before you exit the parking garage your temperature is taken. The park felt crowded and very busy but wait times were low as compared to a typical Saturday. I think the longest I waited for a ride was 30 minutes at most. Each ride required social distancing, so for each car, or whatever the ride has, it would be one family/group of people at a time. I got front row on every ride I went on because of this! That was cool. Lines required social distancing as well. Stickers on the floor indicated where to stand. Before your turn on a ride an employee gives you hand sanitizer. Wearing a mask all day in FL summer heat was difficult, and I don’t plan on doing it again. I would love to return to Universal hopefully not too long from now but not until it is safe to no longer wear masks. I have never felt so hot ever! The water rides had the longest wait times, it had to be at least 98 degrees out. 🥵 Overall, it was a fun trip! I liked Universal better than Islands of Adventure btw 😄

    I found a neat car video series to watch on YouTube. I loved tinkering with cars in the past when I had the "freedom" to do so because it was interesting to find a $100 car that was crap and get it going enough to drive around town. It's how I found a Mazda 323 coupe with moon roof that was a lot of fun to drive. $50 for the car, replaced windshield, bondo the hole in the hood, replace the tires all the way around. I got 40,000 miles out of it before the computer went out in it. 5 speed, too. It was a fun little car. I think I miss that car more than any other I had. It was suppose to be totaled but it ran fine...just needed some TLC. I still remember my Grandmother getting on to me for buying it. Then when it died all I head was "ahhh...that was such a good lil' car." Yeah...exactly what I thought LOL. Anyway, here's one of this channel's videos for you guys to check out. Pretty interesting stuff. Kinda makes me want to go and try to find some old barns or junkyards to go through. Enjoy!

    So..... I would love a modded Arcade1UP Countercade. Nothing crazy, just adding a Raspberry Pi with an image containing oodles of vertical coin-op games, maybe a larger monitor & a better controller layout. The issue is that I have ZERO skills. It looks simple enough but the terminology alone, never mind understanding how all the components I'd have to add work together, is so daunting. If I have to drill a hole, FORGET IT! If anyone would like to do the work for me, for a fee, that would be AWESOME. I know there's a lot of very talented folks here & this should be a layup for you. I would provide all of the necessary parts & cover all shipping. Let me know & I'll provide some example videos of what I'm envisioning. Thanks for reading this far!

    I need to try the Intellivision version. I remember it being a lot slower to ramp up the difficulty. Those two scores I posted were the first and second attempts. My kids scoffed, tried the game themselves, had trouble cracking 1000, and then seemed slightly impressed with my ability. I'll take that very small victory.

    ColEm Emulator Updates

    Hello, All! I have released ColEm 5.0 for Android, a new version of my Coleco emulator: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.colem -- free version https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.colem.deluxe -- full version, currently on sale This release is based on the latest Windows/Linux ColEm 5.0, released last week. It finally adds complete Coleco Adam home computer emulation, with keyboard, disk drives, and tapes. Both disk (.DSK) and tape (.DDP) image files are now supported and can be run from the File Selector. The "Settings | Emulation" screen adds options for Adam emulation and virtual keyboard. Since Adam emulation is still very new, please, let me know if you experience any issues with it. Hopefully, these should be gone in the next few months. Additionally, the "Change Folder" dialog now contains buttons for all your storage devices, such as SD cards and USB flash drives. To select a storage device, simply select "Change Folder" from the File Selector menu, click on your storage device, then click on "Ok". As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning ColEm from the store. You can easily reenable cheats though by downloading this file to your Downloads folder: http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/ColEm-Cheats.zip ALL CHANGES: * Based on the latest ColEm 5.0 sources. * Coleco Adam emulation is now fully operational. * Added support for Adam disk (.DSK) and tape (.DDP) files. * Added "Settings | Emulation | Coleco Adam" option. * Added "Settings | Emulation | Coleco Adam Keyboard" option. * Added "Settings | Emulation | ColecoVision Keypads" option. * Added list of available storage devices to "Change Folder" dialog. * Added available storage devices to the top row in AndroidTV UI. * Changed message indicating that Android denied a directory listing. PS: ColEm Deluxe is currently on $2.99 sale for the next few days: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.colem.deluxe Enjoy!

    I had a DS Lite that I picked up in '06 or so. I got really into the Castlevania games and Etrian Odyssey series. In terms of "burnout", Elder Scrolls Oblivion comes to mind. I really like RPGs but I prefer them to be slightly more linear/guided and story driven. At first I was really excited by Oblivion but by the end, I was over it. When Skyrim came out, I picked it up anyway (hype machine) and couldn't spend more than a few hours on it. The memory of Oblivion just made it taxing. Hope you have fun getting reacquainted with the DS. A lot of great titles for sure!

    Mind Field CC65 Sample

    https://github.com/peteym5/CC65_Mind_Field I have completed my first game in C Programming Language. I am doing this for my own learning experience and sharing what I learn with others. The game is simple as with the Pascal Version. The difference here is that I added an additional ML call to scan the screen around the character you control. The minds highlight in Blue. This is one of my reserved games and this version is being kept as open source. I have considerations of a more enhanced version that will have a vertical scrolling screen with obstacles, shells,moving tanks, and bunkers with enemies shooting from them. It will be sort off a mini "Ikiri Warriors" type game.

    I do have to express that I was completely clueless to the XE line of computers. The only reason why I knew anything about the XE stuff was because of that XEGS setup I found, used, at a consignment shop for $40. An Atari machine I had never seen before, with two disk drives, a few games disk and cart, a printer, joystick, light gun, I mean everything was there with a few bonuses. How could I pass that up? That machine came along not long after my Mother passed away. I got lost in discovering it. Because of the paperwork with that machine is how I also discovered Video 61. Imagine my surprise when I called every number of past Atari dealers that was in that box thinking that none of them were around anymore only for one of them to still answer the phone. I was shocked but did order a few disk based games based on that printed material. Lance has really left me with a positive experience...even when Zaxxon for the Atari computers refused to work on my XEGS...he sent me a copy that worked. I owe that XEGS a lot of gratitude.

    Now that I think of it @Video 61 I think you also talked me out of the Atari Mega ST2 with Megafile 30. I thought that was a tidy looking ST unit, but realized after our call that day the only thing that would keep me entertained for the next 20 years was the 520 STFM. For playing games on TV there's nothing better.

    My father had a Nintendo DS, but he never had interest in it, and I think it was lost. He was never interested in the more advanced games, but loved Artillery Duel for the A2600 and Choplifter for the A7800. Sometimes, when I play certain CRPGs (computer role-playing games), I get bored because I get stuck. Miracle Warriors: Seal of the Dark Lord for the Sega Master System was one of those games. It became a chore because I could never figure out how to summon Terarin, the Dark Lord, so I could defeat her. It was my cousin's game I played, and he was stumped as well. We eventually gave up on it. However, if I tried it today, I could probably defeat it. I have beaten many RPGs: Legend of Zelda, Phantasy Star (the first two games), Final Fantasy for the NES (the original RPG), Shadowgate for the NES, and those are among the ones that I remember. Thanks for letting me share.
