    The guys from ChampGames are currently working on an amazing home port of Galaga for the Atari 2600.  I know NSG posted about it but this deserves its own thread.  Head to the thread in AA to get the demo binary:  Champ Games - Galaga 2600

    Hey guys. I swooped up an 800 today for nothing. I can finally play the GORF cart @Willie!gave me so long ago. Lol This is (aside from an XEGS) my first Atari 8 bit computer. This unit did not come with a power supply, anyone know of an alternative for power?

    This came in the other day and it works amazing great and is easy to use. It came in a pretty neat 3D printed box I can store it in too. The only complaint I really have is the same complaint I have with similar products like 'everdrives', etc; that the loading time can be a little long. But that can't be helped given what such a product does. Overall. Everything I expected, a quality product delivered in a quality way. I would suggest purchasing one if you're on the fence.

    You think the caution label scares you? There used to be a shop at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas that sold all kinds of hot sauces. For certain sauces, you'd actually have to sign a release for the State of Nevada before they'd allow you to purchase!

    hi everyone,
     
     newest video on the 45 degree controller option peter installed in novawolf, its a brilliant option peter, great job. this should be our last option installed, now its purely doing beta testing.
     
    This video shows the latest build of V61's new game for the Atari 8-bit, "Novawolf," with a new option: 45-degree turns, which can be set on the menu before you start playing the game. Before, you could only perform 90-degrees. As like before, this is an unfinished prototype. Game parameters may change.
     
     
     
    Thanks for watching!

    Depends on the sauce, really. There's a thai restaurant near where I work (in fact, I had dinner with TrekMD there once ) -- I'll use any and all hot sauces they have there. But I'm not one of those hot sauce people who has to look for the hottest of the hot. I like a little pick-me-up.

    Can't say I do.  I've never been much of a fan of adding hot sauces to my food.  But I don't like food to hot or spicy either.

    The house closed on 7/31. We got 9 offers  in a weekend and ended up selling to a friend.  She wasn't the highest, but she was ballpark and considering this is a divorce sale, we both wanted the house to go to someone we care about.  It was super stressful prepping everything and my ex-wife's move was way more chaotic than it needed to be.  But we made it! 
    The house was the last big thing between my ex-wife and I to put a period on the divorce.  We'll always have our daughter but she's (fortunately) grown so with the exception of college graduations, weddings and funerals, I imagine contact will be fairly limited.  15 years is a long time and its amazing to me how much time and energy it takes to unwind the legal entanglement that is marriage.  Its been over a year since everything started unraveling.  It will definitely be a consideration for relationships moving forward.  
    I've spent the last year largely on self improvement and work.  I've dropped 50lbs and I'm back to what I call my rock n' roll weight - a number that hasn't been seen since 2004! I've started exercising regularly, cook almost everything, cut back on drinking and limited eating out.  I've also simplified my life and got rid of a lot of "stuff."  I've been playing music with friends again and we rent a "lock-out" studio in an industrial space to practice.  Maybe we'll actually get to a point where we want to gig... 
    Anyway, this will probably wrap this whole thread.  I appreciate all of the support from my fellow atari.io forum folks.  This stuff is tough and sharing it has really helped! Thanks to all who commented or sent messages of support.  
    To infinity and beyond!

    Congratulations RickR!
     
    Congratulations @RickR on your ULTIMATE score! I want to thank EVERYBODY for participating in our little event this year, and for celebrating the life and works of Howard Scott Warshaw who went for so many years without recognition, carrying "the blame" for the video game crash. I hope doing HSWDAY once a year is a fun way to break out these old games and appreciate them for what they are. I hope everyone had a good time playing Ultimate Yars!. Congrats to @RickR @greenween @atarilbc @TrekMD @kamakazi20012 and @Atari Creep for being among the most elite Yars' Revenge players! I'd like to encourage RickR to post his new high score on the Scoreboard, and maybe this Challenge can continue on! 
    Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be for the TurboGrafx-16!
