  1. Thanks @RickR. Yes, even though the forums are safe, the warning has been applied to atari.io as a whole so there's no getting around it until it's resolved with google.
  2. I think that would be a terrific idea @RickR! We will be hosting TurboGrafx-16 Squad Challenges at least 2-3 times a year, so I expect you'll get a lot of enjoyment out of that system.
  3. You're already beating me! I'll have to give this another shot this week!
  4. ⚠️ Here's what's going on with the Atari I/O Malware "Security Warning" Issue: https://forums.atari.io/topic/4465-atari-io-malware-security-warning-issue/ If you have experience removing malware from Wordpress sites we could use your help!


  5. Hi everyone, Your browser may be giving you a malware "security warning" when you visit Atari I/O. I'm aware of this issue and working to resolve it. The forums have been updated with their latest security update this morning and should currently be a safe place to visit despite the security warning. The malware issue is affecting the "main" side of the website (http://www.atari.io) which runs on Wordpress. The forums side of the website (https://forums.atari.io) has always been hosted on a different server and runs on different software, which is more secure. However, because Google has detected the malware issue in the Wordpress part of our website, they have issued a warning for the entirety of Atari I/O until the issue has been completely resolved. Once I've been able to identify and remove the malicious content from the Wordpress side of the site, I will need to request a security review from Google and provide them with documentation showing the changes made to the site. This may take a little time. If there's "a doctor in the house" and you have experience removing malware from Wordpress sites and would like to volunteer your assistance in helping me resolve this issue please send me a PM. I will be working on this and will keep you updated as I reach important milestones. Best Wishes to All!
  6. I love stuff like this. I love the artwork, this looks like it could be straight out of Tim Lapetino's "Art of Atari".
  7. I should try giving those things a read once in a while
  8. @LSGreger I love hearing that! Happy to see this go to someone who really appreciates it! Best wishes
  9. It absolutely is! A lot of fun! My main strategy was just to keep my speed down to "cruising speed" and take my time so I didn't crash. I've never heard of that trick, I'll have to give that a try! Seems plausible since there must be some reason the Pause button was moved to the second controller. Maybe there's more going on here? Seems like we have a mystery on our hands fellas.
  10. Honorable Mention Greenween! Congratulations @greenween on a score to be proud of! The score wasn't posted before the Squad Challenge came to an end, but there's still plenty of "nerd cred" to go around. Great to have all of you participating! DIDN'T QUITE MAKE IT IN TIME ∞ GREENWEEN 50,810

We're getting into the spooky spirit of Halloween by playing Splatterhouse, an absolutely horrific game on TurboGrafx-16. This is one of the TG's best! Splatterhouse was a big draw to players first coming over to the TurboGrafx-16 from NES. This is NOT a Single Life Run, play it full-out and enjoy the spookiness. Remember, you can play TurboGrafx HuCards on TurboGrafx-16, TurboExpress, and TurboDuo! I hope you guys enjoy this Squad Challenge and have a great October. ROM and Instruction Manual are provided below. Good luck to everyone playing! 🎃 NOTE: Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be for the Nintendo Game Boy. Be there!

  13. Congratulations RadioPoultry! Congratulations @RadioPoultry on your fantastic score! I hope you guys enjoyed that super spy action in Spy Hunter! I hadn't played this game in years, it was nice to pick it up after such a long time. It was always one of my favorite games to play on the NES growing up. You guys posted some seriously impressive scores on a very challenging game. @RadioPoultry posted an astronomical score of 100,715 points! Unreal! I ranked 2nd place on the board with a score of 64,330 points, @kamakazi20012 took the 3rd position with his A-game of 39,470 points, @RickR took 4th with a solid showing of 22,125 points, and @Atari Creep rounds things out with an impressive 15,510 points. Congrats to @RadioPoultry and everyone who jumped in to play in this squad challenge and shared a score! Radio should be very proud of his accomplishment and I'd like to encourage him 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 a Halloween challenge for the TurboGrafx-16. Be there! SPY HUNTER FINAL STANDINGS 1 RADIOPOULTRY 100,715 2 JUSTIN 64,330 3 KAMAKAZI20012 39,470 4 RICKR 22,125 5 ATARI CREEP 15,510
  14. OutRun! I've always loved the aesthetics of that game. I love living by the water. It's just a lot of fun!
  15. Dude that is so sweet! That's just to cool! Tremendous job!! 🙌 Great to see you breathe new life into this beauty!
  16. Best I can do! This was a really fun game. I don't want to win this! One of you guys has to top this score tonight! My High Score: 64,330
  17. You did great @Arenafoot! This overlap between Homebrew Forum and 2600 Form etc. has been a paradox that we've been trying to sort out for a while and make a change. When I put the site together I created the Homebrew Forum thinking this would be THE place where people go to talk about the Homebrew scene. A lot of people post to the 2600 Forum instead, (or whatever forum the system is that the homebrew is for.) I've considered making the Homebrew Forum exclusively for development, but that seems just as confusing. Your posts are fine either way, just needed to merge two great conversations into one.
  18. Not a problem! You guys are posting great content and I'm grateful to have you guys here! 🙌 Sometimes we just need to tidy up a bit when we have duplicate threads on the same topic.
  19. Great idea @nosweargamer! I'd like to offer a special WELCOME to everybody who just joined our community! And a huge thank you to NSG for hosting his October Giveaway here! W E L C O M E E V E R Y B O D Y !

  21. I'll miss Robert Forster. What a presence. Just watched him in El Camino tonight, then saw on my phone he passed away from cancer. Was brilliant in Twin Peaks and Jackie Brown. One of my favorite actors, I'm sad he's gone.

      😔 (BTW, El Camino was great!!)

  22. I'm not going to be eligible for NSG's October Giveaway (thanks for hosting it here this month @nosweargamer!) but my favorite scary game is Splatterhouse for TurboGrafx-16! Runner-up would be the original Atari arcade version of Gauntlet if you consider that spooky.
  23. Agreed Wow. That's not very convenient for me. Thanks for sharing!
