  • Retrogaming Radio - Wow, two months and we have a totally PACKED show! First, a new rant on HAT TIPPING vs. THEFT (we'll tell you what the difference is). We interview Don Daglow (Dungeon, Utopia, World Series Baseball, produced Adv. Construction Set and Racing Destruction Set) - Don rocks, you'll love it. Our Bits and Bytes segment is FRIGGIN' HUGE (thanks Dana and Gerry!) too. We also interviewed the developers of MESSIAH (RF SNES controllers) and the XGAMESTATION (build your own classic gaming hardware and program it) - fun folks to talk to. We've listened to you pinball lovers and Bryan and I collaborated on a look at Stern's LORD OF THE RINGS. We give away the location of ONE OF EIGHT easter eggs on the RetroGaming Radio Year 5 DVDROM. And if that weren't enough - we have even more for you. Don't worry - we have ANOTHER show for you shortly for November - double header RetroGaming Radio for your Fall enjoyment! - chris

  • Message from Brad "Zophar" Levicoff - Greetings to all Retrogames.com visitors. I'd like to invite all fans of animation and horror films to visit www.rightbrainanimations.com, home of Right Brain Animations.

    I put this website together for my friend, David Popolow, whose feature film "Circle of Freaks" will be playing next week at various film festivals across the United States. This short animation is posted on our films page.

    I invite everyone to check it out and give feedback on our forums page, or you can reach David directly at david@rightbrainanimations.com.

    Thanks to everyone, and I hope to hear from you all soon. Take care!

    I've checked out the movie before posting (last week actually ;) and it's pretty damn cool (stopmotion!!!). What Brad didn't mention, is that he is responsible for the sound effects, video editing and trailers of this project. - atila

  • DSemu 0.0.1a - The GameBoy Advance (and later maybe DS) emulator DSemu has been updated!

    'Another few small touches today. I reimplemented the MUL series in assembly, and that threw out a few bugs. It turned out that back when I'd changed MUL to reflect the proper opcode fields, I hadn't changed MULS. The proper pieces of asm has changed that though. Dunno if it actually helps any demos run, but it's always good to find a bug. Also, I had a couple of demos running strange. One cleared half the screen before drawing (instead of all), and one drew half the screen (instead of all). Turns out that both use DMA3 to do the screen operation. And what'd you know, I had the word/halfword bit flipped. Change it around, and both Leonard's Trip and Torlus' Walk3d work fine.'
