    After learning that the Retro World Series added another event in Minneapolis for April 7, I reached out in hopes of landing an interview for Episode 7 which will air next Wednesday, March 27. I was unable to schedule an interview for my pilot episode, but with two events in April (the other set for Las Vegas on April 26-28), my hope is to secure an interview by no later than Monday so I could edit the segment in time for Wednesday.

    You can download the newest version of Hatari here: https://download.tuxfamily.org/hatari/2.2.1/ When you open Hatari, it will run without a floppy disk image present. Press F12 to open the Hatari main menu and click "floppy disks". To the right of Drive A, click "browse" and find the Buggy Boy disk image file. Go back to the main menu, select "reset machine", and click OK. The emulated ST will reset and after a few seconds Buggy Boy will finish loading up. Hatari disables joysticks by default, but you can enable them in the main menu (F12) under "Joysticks". For Buggy Boy, you'll want to select Jostick 0, so click the left arrow and switch "disabled" to either "use keyboard" or "use joystick". I'm using keyboard, myself. The default key assignments are the arrow keys for directions and right ctrl for fire, but you can redefine them if you want. Keep in mind you will lose all these settings when you close Hatari unless you save the configuration from the main menu.

    I managed to squeeze in enough time to work on a few training sessions and, holy crap! Rocket League cars can fly!! Somewhat. Training! The key to this game is to practice the training sessions.

    I love this game! There is a way to get a few extra bonus points. Look at the flags in the upper right hand corner. Collect the colored flags in the order that it shows and the flags will start to flash for a short while. I think the flags are worth double while flashing. I have managed to collect flags while they are flashing to lengthen the time the flags flash. I remember playing this game at an arcade/go kart place my hometown use to have decades ago. It was the only time I seen the arcade of Buggy Boy. I never knew any form of home computer or console got this game until recently. Unlike the arcade version, however, the ST version lacks other cars on the track to annoy you. It's just you and the open road. Controls are simple making this an easy game to pick up and play. And you don't have to hold throttle down the entire time. The throttle works the same way as 2600's Enduro. Get it up to speed and let off. It will maintain speed until you either hit something, slow down, or crash. Fire button is used to shift gears. Awesome score, RP! I'll have to give it another go.

    Got it running on an emulator (Hatari). There were one or two small annoyances. I can give the details of how I did it in a little while, in case anyone has trouble. My score was 66,440. Neat game!

    I played. 84,740. Made all 5 Legs. Learned a few new tricks during this run. One of my favorite ST games. I just wish ST games were more abundant in the wild. ST games are more scarce than anything predating it.

    The only true cart device I know of was for some sort of MIDI use. But anything cartridge for the ST is very rare. There's no where really to turn on developing homebrewed games on cartridge because the boards are almost non-existent. This is the only information I could find on it. https://www.atarimagazines.com/v4n12/STCartridges.html

    Squad Challenge - Buggy Boy (Atari ST)

    I honestly didn't know that was a cartridge port. I thought it was some kind of I/O interface port. I'm going to join in about a week...once my house if back in order.

    STs never had much of anything on cart. A few things but mostly accessory stuff. That's a good thing, too. Yes they have cartridge ports but I believe it was a wasted port as no one seemed to use it. Makes sense because disks were cheaper than carts but they were also very easy to pirate.

    If I recall this never had a cart? Only disk?

    One good reboot I can think of is Batman. I think the Christian Bale "Dark Knight" series is much better than what came before. Star Trek is another. I can't say it's better than before, but at least it brought new life and new fans to Star Trek. As far as sequels, Star Wars is a really fascinating one. Watching episodes 7 and 8 really makes me wish they'd done these BEFORE episodes 1 - 3 were made, as the OG cast is really old. They still get the job done, but it makes me sad to think of the missed opportunities.

    I agree. The rebooted Footloose was not that great IMO.

    At least they are sequels and not a stupid reboot.

    This would be totally awesome. But like so many sequels these days....what the heck takes them so long? Think about it...Bladerunner, Star Wars (with original cast), Ghostbusters, Indiana Jones, etc. They waited 20+ years in most cases, and by then the momentum was gone, and the actors had aged considerably. You just have to respect something like the Back to the Future trilogy, which went ahead and filmed parts 2 and 3 back to back, and then closed the book. No more sequels.
