No Man's Sky - Atlas Rises

12th August 2017

I loved it to start with, but then get lost with all the new additions last time. Tried the new update and a few Atlas jumps and it's borked. The Atlas thing just stares at me and no dialog like the others. All I can do is escape out =/

GLBasic Down

9th August 2017

I enjoyed messing with GLB ages ago but was also somewhat pained by that lack of feature xyz. Eventually, and because my target platform was Android, I put AndroidExtras together (me = FiveSprites on GLB forum). That fixed lots of problems with audio - s<snip>

iPod Discontinuations

29th July 2017

I've had an iPod Shuffle for a long time. It's great and perfect for what I wanted - something I can chuck around and not worry about smashing the screen.

My biggest issue was the pitiful amount of storage space (by today's standards anyway<snip>

Not that it matters much, but you can replace:

£36 per hour

17th July 2017

Most of our local schools ask for yet more and more. Not much we can do about it as they're getting squeezed to death budget wise. Six quid for 10 mins of lesson time a week is taking the royal piss though - off you fuck with that sunshine!

Little Bugs - Gotta Catch 'em All

I don't know if it's just me, but a few times now I go to visit socoder and get the google page saying page unavailable, view a saved copy. click on the bookmark again or refresh the page and it works fine.

Atari Flashback Portable

Yeah, the portable isn't the new thing announced. It's also been around for a few months now. You can even grab one here:

I really just hope the cables will be a bit longer. Ok, a lot longer. The NES Mini cables are piss poor =/

I'm more interested in what the hackers will do with it - just like the NES Mini. Hopefully won't be long before you can stuff lots more games onto there.

Arduboy Owners Club

27th April 2017

I never really looked past the spec sheet for the Arduboy. It's too small (and pricey) for my tastes. Same with the Gamebuino.

I much prefer hacking things up myself and then re-using the bits once I'm bored - I have a shelf full of "thin<snip>

Monkey Pi

4th July 2016

I've not looked at Monkey in ages, but I do know that a standard Linux port won't work.

Linux targets are x86. The Raspberry Pi is an ARM architecture so it won't work.

Monkey will need to have a specific target for the Pi.

Arduboy

17th June 2016

It's incredibly easy to just grab any old arduino and hang a display off it. There's loads of open source game libs for them.

In all honesty, and for the price, you're better off looking at the pocket chip: [url]https://getchip.com/pages/p<snip>

RPi Zero Availability

I tried asking if I can buy in quantity for a project I'm working on with a friend - absolutely no chance =/

At least I managed to order a few more for reserves

RPi Zero Availability

16th May 2016

Well, mostly yes. The processor is different so you need to change the architecture type when building. They also changed some of the memory map, so you'll need to double check that too.

I've stuck with the PiZero rather than trying to run on <snip>

Raspberry Pi Zero Bare Metal Fun!

Raspberry Pi Zero Bare Metal Fun!

I'm no pro in assembler, so it's mostly C. There has to be some ASM for various things - not least starting things up, but once done you can pretty much ignore that.

When I was reading up on the Spectrum Next, I found that they were using a Raspberry Pi Zero for HDMI connectivity. I'd previously thought of this using a standard Raspberry Pi for the 6502 project that's a bit on-and-off. The problem I had was tha<snip>
