Hello from Australia
« on: March 11, 2015, 03:15:43 AM »
Hi folks,

I'm just a small time retro gaming enthusiast with a hand full of older consoles and computers. Looking forward to being part of this community.

Cheers,
Raj

Welcome to the forum fella, hope you have a great time here, we have tons of untapped information, interviews and much more. And we reward members that take the time and effort to post and share their stories, information and what not with us here at RVG, and if you become a regular and hit the 50 post count and hidden area on the forum unlocks itself to you were you can find lots of goodies as a thank you for your loyalty.

So get posting and hope to hear and read lots from you.

I'll start the ball rolling, how long have you been gaming on vintage computers and what year did you get your first platform?

:)

Sure.. Okay here goes.

Well I was born in the UK, and from that, my dad first introduced into Video games I believe around the year of my birth with an Atari 2600 (light sixxer) which I still have in great condition.

My first real computer was a BBC Micro B where I learnt how to code.. and from there I stayed missing out on the 16bits, etc.. until my first PC in 1990. However I've made up for it now with the following gear.

BBC Micro B, Vic 20, C 64C, Atari 800XL, Atari 1040 STe, Amiga 1200
Atari 2600, Nintendo Gamecube, Nintendo Wii, PC Engine, Megadrive 1 & 2, PS2, PS4
Nintendo Gameboy, Gameboy Advance, DS, PS Portable, Vita

And there's probably a few other bits and pieces I forget.

I've coded something on all the computers, some of the handhelds and some of the consoles, and my aim is to continue to work on games for those platforms (it's a slow hike tho).

So you could say I've been gaming for 36 years, but realistically probably more around the 29 year mark.. :)

wow, that's a great history of your work and timeline, we have a developers section here on the forum closed off to regular members you might consider becoming a part of it? but access has to be granted by an Administrator here on the forum.

the Dev Area allows both input and output by other fellow programmers and designers without ridicule of what ever project your working and in a lot of case can shed light of issues that may occur during the process etc. so if that sounds interesting to you , simply let us know here if your interested :)

Greyfox,

That would be great, currently working on a couple of items, one quite old school and the other a bit newer.
