  1. Just seen this over on AA 🙄sadly my initial post suggested using the ROM in emulation OR Flash / Harmony cart but apparently it is NOT compatible with the HARMONY. 

    To remedy this user Batari has provided a Harmony only version with custom back switched code added to the rom itself ( his words, I don't know what any of it means 😛 )

    I have not seen anyone respond or confirm YET so take it as you will, I will give it a go when I have the time, likely not anytime soon but if you have a Harmony Cart and are

    curious to try yourself the rom is attached OR see the link below for original thread should you wish to go thank batari yourself (or update if it works or not etc) 😎👍🍻

    :mac_pirate: Admin Note: Merged two identical threads into one

    Ah thanks Justin, sorry I honestly did not see Arenafoot's posting. DOH! Well, just shows we all want to make sure everyone is informed and aware! 

    My understanding though just to update is it is NOT playable on a Harmony Cart? At least a couple people over on AA said it is a no go. Still, emulation 

    is fine and cool to finally be able to experience a game most of us never would have otherwise. 🍻

     


  3. First and foremost I have NOTHING to do with this but just noticed this over on AtariAge. I know some here are members there and some not so I wanted to be sure the news reached all of those who would appreciate the ROM to use in emulation or Harmony / Flashcart. 

    PLEASE if you ARE a member over on AA be sure to stop by and give thanks to user Dutchman2000 😎🍻I am sure he will appreciate it,

    Rom attached below or of course in the link to the original thread above, your choice to make it easy! 😜

  4. I will try to keep it short, first I agree 100% , I been against the loss of physical media from the start and I suspected where it would lead. From online activation to requiring servers to "authentic" a game purchase I seen red flags. I bought it, I know I own it so WTF do I need some server to verify that? That would even be acceptable IF they had put in place a simple means to basically allow one to keep playing even if servers go down, I trust MY hard drives or MY media, I NEVER have trusted a big corporation to decide if I can play a game I own or not and that is really what it boils down to. 


  5. Nothing changed hardware or spec wise, I like running the test since this is the best main desktop I have ever had or am likely to ever again, I also like 

    to just make sure I am maintaining it and running well. 🍻 I cannot really cannot account for the slight dip in numbers? Might be interesting to try every so often and see

    how results vary even with little or no change in specs. 

     

    Previous test back in February:

  7. Rambling on about silly comics I made 35+ years ago.

    Rambling on about silly comics I made 35+ years ago. 
    I was not going to post originally as it did not come out as well as I had hoped and I did not feel spending the time to do it over, so I been sitting on it for weeks, I WAS going to upload unlisted just to share privately but I decided %!#$& it, since I don't do many videos anymore I give people the choice to watch or not, anyway here is the video along with the title and description - 😆Rambling on about silly comics I made 35+ years ago. 🍻My old friend TONY sent me some comics I made with friends from 1982, so I would have been 13. Crazy stuff, I was not very good but see my reaction to reliving the memories and fun I have telling stories about these comics and art I made so long ago. Just reliving some memories, having some laughs, nothing serious here, mostly posted for my friends and family so don't feel obligated to sit through it all! BUT if you have nothing better to do and are interested in my silly little stories, throw it on and have a laugh. 😎

     


  8. True Story, back in the day I rented from a store that had an amazing selection of games, I rented Tengen Tetris one day, loved it, a week later I returned to rent it again, I could not find it, I asked the clerk, he said pointed to the Nintendo Tetris, I was thrown off at first and said "Er, no, I don't think that is the one, the one I rented was not made by Nintendo". Long story short, he denied they had, OR EVER HAD any other version, even me clearly stating you DID because I rented it, he was trying (for some reason) to cover so hard "Are you sure it was HERE you rented it?", he absolutely would not budge on it, insisted they never had any other version so I just dropped it. Only years later, when I would come to read articles and info in magazines etc, would I learn the story of TENGEN TETRIS and TENGEN themselves, now I still do not know WHY exactly this occurred, maybe the clerk bought (or stole?) the TENGEN version because he had learned that TENGEN would have to pull sales? Maybe the store was ordered to PULL the game off their shelf? But in either of those cases WHY claim they NEVER had it in the first place? So whatever the reason I can only suspect wrong doing on the clerk or store managers part because of their behavior acting like they were never in possession of the game, like it was some highly illegal item like plutonium or something 😜

    Anyways, carry on, was not my intention to disrupt this thread but all this talk about TETRIS, OFFICIAL, TENGEN etc, just brought back that silly memory that comes back whenever I hear the TENGEN name lol. FEEL FREE TO MOVE THIS to OFF TOPIC or perhaps WEIRD STORIES under CLASSIC GAMING or something.......CARRY ON GUYS. 😆😎🍻

     

     


  9. I will reply by pasting just what i said to some friends in Messenger as well in Facebook, keep in mind I was a HUGE fan of the original and pretty much seen every episode and some multiple times:

     

    I kept expectations low and really tried to like...we watched the first 6 episodes but NOPE....the new Jordan Peele Twilight Zone....not doing it for me, too hit or miss and really they are mostly just modern takes on the same old stories only not as good....

    Maybe for a modern generation who is unfamiliar with the source material it can be enjoyed more, I don't know, I was hoping / expecting more originality, I am all for fan service and even appreciate it and no they are not the exact same stories but being the huge fan I am of Serling's original tales having seen each episode more than once I definitely could read between the lines and see the episode they were reflecting in each new episode for the most part. I didn't expect Peele or really anyone to have the presence for the short host segments at the start / finish of every episode but I had hoped the episodes themselves to be more entertaining, again maybe it is more enjoyable for those unfamiliar with the original but I suspect long time true fans will not see this as a worthy successor or tribute, I would personally rather have watched pretty much any given original episode over any of these new ones. But I truly wanted to give it a fair shake before voicing an opinion, since each episode is pretty much self contained I think 6 episodes is a fair shake.


  10. Honestly, I was not sure where to post this, being a retro inspired platforming game but for Windows only. If Justin or anyone feels it should be in a specific category please feel free to move. Came across this post showing a video playing of this interesting looking game. Here's the video to judge for yourself along with a link to the page to download the windows game and artwork etc.
