    DegasElite reacted to peteym5 in HD quality motion picture recordings is nothing new.   
    If you wonder how a movie going all the way back to when humans starting making movies, and it looks like it was filmed with a modern digital camera. There is a reason for that, it is called FILM. It is a chemical analog process that uses light, putting the images onto this paper thin stuff. I came across this video that explains how it works. Shows how stuff recorded onto Video Tape cannot be transferred to modern digital media and expect great results.

    You know, I just brought my cat to the vet. She needed shots and a checkup. She is still quite healthy but needs some dental work and future blood work done. But, she is still doing good for a 13-year-old cat. She'll be alright. :O)

    Beagles are cool dogs. I like beagles because they are friendly to people. Very social dogs.

    In my life, I have raised three ferrets, just not all at once. Their names were Snickers, Pepsi, and Cola. They were cool little pets. Snickers was alone, while Pepsi and Cola were litter mates. Fun little guys, those ferrets. :O)

    I have a cat. Her name is Yoda. Originally, she was named Diamond. My landlord's son rescued her from a crack house and had her for a while. Eventually, I received her and I take care of her now. She is approximately 12-13 years of age and she is a Himalayan. Very fluffy cat, and nice to me. But, she is a little skittish around other people and can be territorial. I think that she was affected by the drug use in her old place. You can say that she was a rescued cat. Here she is. Thanks for letting me share. 🙂

    Yeah, GD-ROM sort of dealt with Windows CE and stuff, from what I remember now. The Dreamcast was neat, I got one at Launch on 9/9/99. 🥰🥰

    Well, the 25 Discs (26 if you include the Soundtrack Disc) and the Source Code, several MBs of that I have too, it amounts to a bit of weight, and a bit of a pile to look over and widen your eyes with. 😄😄  Most wouldn't believe that they were looking at $3-5 million dollars wasted and a lot of blood, sweat, tears and sleepless nights just thrown away by four upper level people in a company... Really and truly a really sorry sad state of affairs there, you know. It kind of pisses off an old Jaguar fan too!! Just what all did they really throw away in the trash? Did they care? Did they even know? The Black Ice Team really did know and care!!! 😄😄😞😞

    I thought that you meant the main code for one disc. But, I guess with a 700 MB CD-R, it still would be well more than 9,560 lines of code. It's actually a lot of space, for a compact disc, for most things. Also, the Jaguar CD can handle disc capacities of up to 790 MB. but, the CDs never went that high for the Jag. However, I think that there were 800MB CDs. Well, there were the GD-ROMs for the Dreamcast, which could go up to a gigabyte in size. But, I am sure that those discs were specially made for that purpose.

    I haven't heard it was that high. Lots of conjecture and rumors though on it.
    Many people would love to get it or find the code that is left to see. 🙂🙂

    Yeah, it amounts to 25 or 26 (27?) Recordable CDs that still exist, it seems. I understand, Atari paid $7.50ea for the CDs back then. 🙂🙂

    No.
    There are many ISO 9560 Files for this that exist, I guess. I am told, that it is raw code and it amounts to some 20GB in the uncompressed state it is in now and being unencrypted.
    Years ago, Curt Vendel ended up with everything that still survived of this rather ambitious Atari project -- Atari had spent between $3 and 5 million dollars getting it to the 30% completion state in ended up at (was it is a higher percentage? ). The last day of production on this was, Sept 7th 1995, I believe. The Black Ice Team was disbanded and the project was abandoned that day. All materials were trashed or auctioned off by Jack/Sam Tramiel/the famous ( infamous? ) Don Thomas Actions of 1996, I understand. The HDDs and everything just disappeared to it and were lost, it seems. The HDDs have never been found and Curt did not seem to have them. None of the Team was allowed to keep anything from the project by Leonard or Atari Security when they each left and everything halted. Little of the project still survives nowadays, you know. The sands of time have claimed everything else that existed and it has been lost, it seems...  Really sad. 😞😞😞😞

    Hey, folks,
     
    I have been studying up on "Black ICE/White Noise," the cyberpunk RPG thriller for the Atari Jaguar CD, that was never completed before Atari's demise in 1996. It has been intriguing looking up information on it. It really interests me about how much effort was put into making this game. Well, I really don't know how much of the game is out there, if anything significant at all. I know that there are interactive video scenes compressed into Cinepak code when the player interacts with NPCs to get information and other things in the game. I have watched videos on YouTube about scenes from this still embryonic-stage game (or, maybe fetal-stage, if you might want to get technical about it). There is a documentary about the game that is coming soon, but I have only seen the trailer on YouTube. I am sure that some people are most curious about this obscure, incomplete game. I obviously am. Does anyone else know anything more about this topic? I assume it might be very little. Atari kept it really under wraps. Thanks for listening.

    My rarest A2600 game? Possibly Miner 2049er: Volume 2. But, it isn't CIB. Only the cartridge exists in my collection. I also have Racquetball from Games by Apollo CIB. That might be the one CIB game that is rarest in my collection.
