  1. Some people had been asking Lance at Atarisales about Laser Blast X and have not the information. So I made a new more detailed video. This is based on the 2600 version of Laser Blast, but with more advance graphics and many extra features. I added X to the end to symbolize it being more extreme, having something extra, and also represent XL/XE Atari 8-bit computers, The game does run on the Atari 400/800 with as little as 16K RAM. because it does not depend on the oprtating system to perform many of its functions. Also matches the memory size of the Atari 5200. Some of the advance features include playing against 3, 4, or 6 tanks on the ground. Fixed distance apart or have them move independently. They can shoot laser back at you or hellfire type missiles. You can also have enemy spaceships flying between you and the tanks, that also shoot back at you. This was possible because the Atari 8-bit has 4 independent sprite (players) horizontal positioning and set them multiple times within a TV frame with DLIs. Instead of the 2600 2 sprite (players) and being triplicated 3 times fixed distance apart. I wish to thank Lance Ringquist, and my beta testers for helping me put this game together. You are seeing news about for this game posted directly from me. News about the games will be first be posted by either myself or Lance. Available at HTTP://WWW.ATARISALES.COM for $39.95
  2. I remember those cartridge shells being a little smaller and look like the company mounted an adapter to the back. Was it the Coleco, Intellivision, or Atari 8-Bit cartridge shells adapted to fit the Atari 2600 console?
  3. Hello guys thank you for support ing comments about what I do. Appreciate it. As some people know I also have my own Facebook group. Now it has grown to over 1000 members, moderating may start to become difficult. I have been looking for assistance that will also respect the policies of Video61 as well. Please contact one of us if interested.
  4. https://youtu.be/o7gEDmaCGwEHere is the first official announcment of NovaWolf. A game we had been developing for the Atari 8-bit and 5200. It is a Solar Fox clone. But I made it slightly different and fun game. It has a two player simultaneous mode. Many different game options to turn features on and off. No date has been set on the release as it currently being beta tested and debugged.
  5. 3D Printing takes time. I say do Best Electronics. Do ebay to see if anyone is selling parts. There are now several Facebook groups that also dedicate to specific categories. "Arcade USA" now has his own 5200 Facebook group.
  6. I am glad that this game is finally working. Put a lot of hard work into this game. I O I O Off to Atari I O I go.....
  7. Anyone know where I can find the source code for the Atari 2600 Miniature Golf? I remember a site had a bunch of different source codes posted. But can't find them anymore.
  8. https://www.facebook.com/groups/963846007156190/ I have changed the name of my facebook group to Atari 8-bit Game Programming to open up something where programmers and game players can work together and come up with some interesting ideas. I received some interesting suggestions in the past few days. I am looking to bring in some experience programmers to help with the novice guys to bring them up to speed.
  9. If anybody wants to provide feedback or make on the game, see something improved. Feel free to post it here. Even if it appears negative, I am open and responsive. I do want to make it into a game that many people can enjoy.
  10. Last night, I created a facebook group that will be about my games. https://www.facebook.com/groups/963846007156190/?hc_location=group I may be providing updates and promoting my games on the group as well.
  11. Megaoids is a cartridge game for the Atari 8-bit computer. Some technical information concerning the controllers: Since the Atari 8-bit is not plug and play through the joystick ports, you will need to select the controller by pressing option when at the title screen. Pressing Option will cycle through the different controllers. You will need to plug in the controller before pressing start. This applies to both versions of Megaoids. We put out two versions of the Megaoids cartridge with an earlier edition stating "Trackball/Driving." This will only work with the Indy 500 Controllers, only works with a specific model of trackball . This was because I received conflicting reports that someone made a trackball that uses the "Gray Code" and assumed that was how all the models worked. The CX-80 model uses the bits differently, so the first edition will not work properly with the Trackball. If your trackball has a joystick mode, use that instead.

This is for the updated Delta Space Arena that supports different controllers. I put out two versions of Delta Space Arena, the earlier edition states "Trackball/Driving." This was because I received conflicting reports that someone made a trackball that uses the "Gray Code" instead of how the usual CX-80 worked. It was not corrected in time before the first few cartridge were released. If your trackball has a joystick mode, use that instead.
  13. Have is my planned video for Secretum Labyrinth Dark Castles. The cartridge is still a few months from being released and things are subject to change. I still may look into improving some graphics and sound, but the game play is pretty well set.
  14. Thankyou for showing your continued support. We would highly appreciate it.
  15. Since I am unable to log into the other forum. I would like to continue discussion about this game here until things are restored. Anyone can sign up and make suggestions on what they would like to see in the game. I am attempting to contact the administrator to have my account restored.
