      Atari's last game console, the Atari Jaguar represented a huge leap in technology from previous offerings. Featuring a 64-bit architecture, the Jaguar had great potential, but its power was difficult to tap. Even then, many great games were released and the Jaguar has an avid fan base today.

    • I like it. Maybe this can become something to unlock? 
    • Were you able to get the undeletion and recovery done?  
    • There isn't a PC-6000.  They have the PC-6001 with a chicklet keyboard, and the PC-6001A & TREK that have a regular keyboard. PC-6000 series just means all those models. The PC-6001 MKII is backwards compatible but adds new graphics modes, so I guess some of the manual would apply to it as well, but it came later.    
    • Thanks - I guess I had thusfar neglected to actually try starting Extended Basic with the Disk Controller card in the system, because it seems that locks up the system in the same way!  Does XB try to do something with disk on start?
    • I was told that a few of the 8bit comms packages support ANSI.   Has anyone tried the 40 column support in ANSI mode?   Thanks...   PS ATM, we support ASCII, VT52, and ANSI.  
    • Issue #33 BLINE had an update to assembly list from #29.  I check the listing on the #29 I posted and it already has the fix, so no changes to BLINE. An update to the Clock program from issue #31.  This mod allows for loading the SET program to load automatically. VANDENBG.LST is entered into VANDENBG.BAS from issue #29 for better XL compatibility. BBEXTERM.BAS fixes some problems with BASIC REV A and also puts basic on disk.  The BASIC Cartridge is no longer needs in 400/800s. The assembly listing compiles. An ATR is included. SYNTRON.BAS creates a file or a cassette version of the game. The CAS and an ATR from that CAS are included.SYNTRON.M65 compiles into a working game CCOM.BAS creates an AUTORUN.SYS for your DOS disk.  The assembly listing compiles using Atari Macro Assembler into a working program. There are 9 sound assembly listings.  Listings 1-5 and 7-9 assemble using Assembler Editor. Listing 6 requires Atari Macro Assembler.  I get 1 error on this one, something about a macro. Listing 6-9, it seems, do not appear in the magazine so I cannot verify that it is correct.  I left the OBJs off of the disk as I would have to make a second side if I included them.

    • The sprites in my screenshot are 2.125 pixels vertically (9 pixels drawn per 4 in the sprite)... which is due to the display kernel.  I don't think it looks too terrible.  The player is 15 pixels tall (30+ on screen) and the black ninja is 16 (32+ on screen).   I've gone thru and tweaked the screen background graphics a bit.  I like how the lanterns turned out... that came out of a fortunate accident where they were using the player graphics data as the color values.  I copied that data and tweaked it a bit:     I've started work on player movement.  It's a bit rough, but the player can run, jump, climb up, and fall.  The fall feels a bit sluggish, but that actually seems to match other versions of the game.  The black ninja just runs back and forth.   I've focused mainly on this screen because it's symmetric. I wanted to work out movement code before tackling asymmetric playfields.  I think I need to get the fighting code in first so that I can see what's needed in the display kernel to handle the sprites kicking and punching each other.  Maybe NUSIZ tweaking or maybe MISSILEs.... not sure yet.   Enjoy!   BruceLee2600_wip_20230201_NTSC.BIN
    • You do get tired playing shooters with this controller. I primarily use mine with Activision's H.E.R.O., I find that it gives me the best control over Roderick, especially during the lava screens.
    • Here is my colecovision connected to a vga monitor and my TV via rf out   As you can see i get nothing from the RF out so i suspect you won't have any composite from there either
