I played it for a while tonight, it's quite good.  The game doesn't record your high score (what room you got to) when you die so I'm not entirely sure how far I got, but I think I was able to make it to room 20 or so.  Fun game.

I posted the map demo today at AtariAge that accurately replicates the original map for Zelda.  Here's the link:  http://atariage.com/forums/topic/226443-adventure-demo-7800basic/page-3

I won't be releasing the source for it to respect Ninendo's copyrights and I won't be making an actual game with Zelda graphics, its just a map demo of the Zelda world.  I thought I'd share here in case anyone is interested in taking a look.

Retro News & Chat / Re: So, hey, what's your favorite retro FPS?
« on: July 04, 2014, 00:18:56 AM »
I remember just about all the games mentioned.  I got my first 486 PC in college in 1991 just a year before Wolfenstein 3D was released.  There were some great FPS games released just prior to that, my favorites were Blake Stone and Catacomb Abyss.  You can download them here:  http://www.dosgames.com/g_3d.php.  I attached screenshots of those two.

I wasted days of my life playing Wolfenstein 3D, and then multiplayer Duke Nukem 3D in college when we still had to use a null modem cable.  No one had a PC with a network card back then.  :21:

I guess everyone still thinks this is a Zelda port for the 7800 despite Atarius saying it won't be.

It's my fault I guess for posting the very first demo and making it look like Zelda.  :40:

Yes, the forum software is different.  No worries, practice makes perfect.  :)

Yeah, I'll do better, I simply wasn't paying attention to what I was doing.  I really like this Homebrew forum and have barely even begun to dive in.  I like that there are so many retro consoles represented in a single forum.  I'm a huge C64 fan too, I'll be reading those homebrew posts with great interest.  I posted several of my old C64 programs on my website (bjars.com, which I know is down now due to excessive traffic) and always wanted to make a game on that platform too. I wish there was a basic/assembly compiler similar to bB/7800basic for that platform as well.

Hey Atarius, thanks for posting that.  I've tried the 7800 game and it looks great!

You're too kind, loon. You've made some amazing stuff too, and still get a kick out of drunken pooper. ;)

That I did.  Still getting used to the forum differences from AA.  For some reason I want to click on the quote button at the bottom of a post, and on this forum it's at the top.  I'll pay more attention in the future.

Why did we have to be the only country in the world that uses 'football' for an entirely different game? :21:

Ha.  The metric system still confounds me when I travel internationally. :40:

Thanks TrekMD.  Over at AA on the 7800 programming forum you can also download a soccer / international football version of the game I made for gambler172, as well as a few others from him.  Maybe I should have called this American football challenge?  Why did we have to be the only country in the world that uses 'football' for an entirely different game? :)

That looks pretty good! Atarius is here now too, so maybe he'll comment about the game.  :)  It's a complete game and is kind of fun, but I've been focusing on my latest 7800 adventure game project lately.  I recently discovered 7800basic and made a 7800 version of this game too.  You can see that version here: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/226181-touchdown-challenge-my-first-7800basic-game/.


I actually keep meaning to post a thread for the 7800 version but keep forgetting!  :79:

Ha, no worries Laird.  I appreciate you posting about my games at RVG.

It's early in development, so we'll have to wait to see where it goes.

This all for fun and I have no aspirations to sell it or make a profit in any way.  I am planning on using Zelda graphics and the map for pure nostalgia purposes, but I have no intention of replicating the original game.  As I'm using a new development environment for the 7800 and working with the author, this could be a very long process.  If you're a Kevin Costner fan, you'll understand this quote.  "For love of the game". :)

Ah, no worries.  I'll wait until July 1st to check it.  Better check it that same day too if you're having issues with traffic!  :(

I'd love to spend the $$$ and get on a better web host but I'm trying to keep my hobby cost-free. :)

Hey Steve, welcome to RVG!  Glad you decided to join the forum.  I tried checking out your site but I'm getting an error message that says that traffic has been exceeded.

Crap.  Nothing I can do about the traffic exceeded notice other than give my web host more money.  I only get 1GB a month and I've been on a free web host since I started the site in 2006.  It won't be available again until July 1st, unless you want to check out the wayback machine. :(  I haven't had an issue with traffic until 2014, I guess I'm simply getting too much traffic now.
