2600 programming guru Thomas Jentzsch hacked Centipede to use a trackball (or Amiga mouse) instead of joystick. You'll find the ROMs in reply #150.

Re: 2015/8/1: Commodore 64: Kickman

Odd - I thought I'd played Kickman with paddles on my C= 64... Wiki has this to say: Kickman was then quickly rereleased for the Commodore 64. The original version of the game was identical to the Max Machine release, but Commodore later developed an improved port with more detailed background graph...

Re: 2015/1/15: Atari 2600: Glacier Patrol, Byte Before Christmas, The, Stay Frosty 2

Thanks! Having the two continues allows for extra practice on levels that are tough to figure out the first (or seventh) time around. There's an Easter Egg to enable the level selector we used during testing, I posted how to trigger it in the SF2 HSC topic over at AtariAge, it's hidden behind a SPOI...

Re: Ms Pac Man Twin

Agreed, this is very cool. Rev, have you heard of Pac-Man Battle Royale? FOUR players at once...no ghosts, instead you can eat the other Pac-Mans. I played it at the Houston Arcade Expo a few years ago. Is this on the internet or something? It sounds cool! It's an arcade game from 2011 that's also ...

Re: Steam Machines?

Some of them are going to have 4K support, which could be interesting as I'm thinking about getting a 4K set later this year. My HDTV is from 2001, which predates HDMI by a couple years so I had to find an HDMI -> Component Video converter for my Mac mini DVR setup.

Re: What ever happened to arcade games?

They failed to stay ahead. It used to be that arcade games were significantly better than what you could play at home - higher resolutions, more colors, better sound, etc. That hasn't been true for a long time - sometime in the mid to late 90s I realized that new arcade games were looking significan...
