A duo of Switch games are at the top of the list, though with rather moderate times. The 2600 HSC game Fantastic Voyage then follows. These three games also impact the systems list.

 

In other words, it has been a week. Thursday evening my old PC warned that the hard drive was about to break down any minute. I had matters to take care of those so I used it for a bit. On Friday evening, it said the hard drive may never boot again if I keep using it. That is when I moved it over to my new PC and begun copying over files. It took all evening and almost all night, as I didn't really want to power it off and hope it would spin up ever again. I managed to get all my documents and important files (but missed Local Settings in the user folder, which I might try to recover as it contained a few nifty things).

 

Now I'm running on the Ryzen 5 4600G that I bought a couple months ago. I was planning to migrate, but not quite as immediately as it turned out. Since I'm cheaping out, I have replaced the old version of Microsoft Office with Libre Office, which though is somewhat sluggish when it comes to inputting data into columns in the spreadsheet once you have 10000++ rows and a half dozen formulas on each row that trigger for each input. However sorting those 10000++ rows based on two columns is many times faster on this PC, which perhaps is a given. I'm still getting used to it, just like one gets used to a new car after you wrecked the old one.

Eeek! Bastian Schick also had a hard. drive scare recently. You can always use another backup!

I hooked up my Sega Saturn for the first time in 2024.   Played:

F1 Challenge 90 minutes. 

 

 (I didn't beat any race yet, as I don't have the tracks memorized. I tried every track and every car at least once. Great music but don't use the framerate-slaughtering rear-view mirror option!) 

 

Sega Rally Championship. 60 minutes. 

 

(I loaded my old game save and didn't come close to my best times. Didn't come in 1st on this session, but did get a 2nd place.  Played as all 3 cars which are wonderfully different from each other in feel.  This is a 10/10 racing game, very playable and superbly programmed.  After recently watching YT PandaMonium's 4-hour feature on "Saturn Rally", I had to pop it back in. )

Here are my times for this past week (June 17th through 23rd, 2024):

 

Sorry, again no times this week. I'm still converting my choose-your-own-adventure game "The Grindy Adventure" from the German paper version into an electronic version at chooseyourstory.com. By now I've finished all the chapters of the original version, and I'm now doing the chapters which in the original version were referenced, but never written. However, I take care not having them branch off too far, so most end with an ending or in an already existing chapter, only a few of them continue branching.

This past week I played:

 

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2 for PS2 - 133 minutes

 

The Monkey of Zelda (Hack) for NES - 86 minutes

 

Sonic Delta Reloaded (Hack) for Genesis - 276 minutes

 

X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse for PC - 96 minutes

 

Progress:

X-Men Legends II: I finished Chapter 5 using Enigma's Havok mod as my lead character, then went back and re-completed the final boss fight on my Polaris file, figuring out that the glitch I experienced only happens if she delivers the final blow.

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2: I played through Dragon World and got Hercule's Breakthrough capsule.

The Monkey of Zelda: I replayed the first quest because on my first recording I forgot to turn the sound source back on until level 8 and that doesn't make for a very good video. I got a much faster time of 86 minutes too since only the overworld is changed in this one.

Sonic Delta Reloaded: I played through the entire game as Tails, getting all three sets of emeralds.

Atari 2600

Dig Dug - 81 minutes

Red Sea Crossing - 73 minutes

 

I'm still trying to make it all the way across the Red Sea at least once.  I've gotten about 4/5th of the way.  My score was 40,200.

 

If I don't improve on Dig Dug, it will be the end of my tournament season. :(

All but More Invaders were already listed separately, so in this case I welcome that you split your times on the individual titles.

Atari 8-bit:
Cops 'n' Robbers - 5 min.
Getaway! - 9 min.
Keystone Kapers - 19 min.
Lawkeeper - 5 min.

 

Commodore 64:
Bounder - 5 min.
Cosmic Causeway - 8 min.
Impossible Mission - 14 min.
Mega Apocalypse - 5 min.

 

VIC-20:
Snakebite (Firebird) - 7 min.
Snake (Artic Computing, aka Snake-Byte) - 17 min.

 

Yeah! After one month of absence, I finally played some (retro) video games. Of course I had dabbled with Microsoft Solitaire Collection in the mean time but I tend to not count that as gaming.

 

The A8 games are part of the current (soon to end) HSC round. Despite being an extended round, I didn't get to put down some scores until last minute. We played Getaway! seven years ago back when I still had the patience to spend more than hour on a game. It still is playable but a bit long winded to get going.

 

The C64 games were played on THEC64 at my friend's house during the yearly barbeque party. I didn't put too much effort into it, but for the first time learned that the ship in Mega Apocalypse can be rotated somehow (like Asteroids), instead of just moved around. I suppose there is always something new to learn 35+ years after a game was released.

 

The VIC games were a combination of THEVIC20 and the VIC-20. It is rather interesting how many Snake Byte games the VIC-20 has. There is a cartridge game by Sirius, and at least two tape games for the unexpanded machine, one from Firebird called Snakebite and one from Artic Computing which says Snake only but was known back in my days as Snake-Byte II, perhaps to differ it from the Firebird and Sirius games. Given that Zimmers FTP has versions both for keyboard only and a joystick version in Dutch, I wonder if Artic obtained the rights to a type-in. However I also see they released Snake on several other computers like ZX Spectrum and BBC Micro, so perhaps it was theirs all along, and pirates just copying it under a different title.

 

Edit: After looking it up, I'm even more confused. The ZX Spectrum game doesn't at all resemble the VIC-20 game, and there is a YT video of Snake for the VIC-20 which plays a completely different game. Yet Mobygames and others refer to the game I played as published by Artic, and I would assume RGL when making THEVIC20 obtaining licenses for games included got a confirmation from whoever still maintains rights for Artic Computing that "yes, that is our old game".

 

Edit 2: The instructions on the inlay as seen on Retrocollector matches the game after all, so I suppose it really is Snake (his name is Sid by the way). There is also a different Snake by Micro Gold which I haven't identified which one it is.
