Hello my friends, Buck Rogers is now available for your listening pleasure. There is another contest sponsored by Strudders, so please make sure you listen all the way through to find out how to WIN WIN WIN. Thanks for listening!
I just got caught up with you, Ferg, after falling behind a few shows. Will have to listen to this tomorrow.
My wife and I are getting are house ready to sell in the next two weeks, so I have not been able to play Galaxian or Pete Rose to give you feedback. Maybe later this fall once we move into our new house?
I skipped ahead and listened to this episode. I see you got my feedback on time and included it. As for my name, it is indeed in Spanish so you should have pronounced it. Another great episode. Now I'm back to episode 89! I will be doing another long message with feedback once I am totally caught up.
My recent move has resulted in the end of my commuting days. My podcast backup is epic! I don't like to listen while I work because I find the 'casts become background noise & I don't focus. The 2600GBG has priority #1 & jumps all other podcasts. I will finish ep. 137 today no matter what!
Thanks Rob! Don't forget that I didn't notice that you said 20th Century Fox. 😀
Ha ha. Well, we're both tired / old / crazy, or all of those !
The whole rolling screen thing has nothing to do with PAL/NTSC. My CRT TV is multi format and has no problems with both formats, but Buck Rogers has some issues with the number of lines it produces. This is a quote from an Atari Age thread:
The title screen for Buck Rogers is 240 lines. Most Atari games (NTSC) shoot for 262 lines. Your TV doesn't seem to like having too few scanlines, and that is why it is rolling.
Buck Rogers then jumps to 249 lines when it displays "Level 01" (after you press the firebutton). Finally, on the play screen it goes to a normal 262 scanlines.
See if your TV stops rolling when you get to the play screen.
