New toy
« on: 2008-12-13, 08:14:34 PM »
So, I received a Christmas present early from a guy at work. I think it's rather nifty at that. It does the same thing my hacked up wireless router does, but much much simpler.

Here's a link to it.

I've already loaded an old old game of mine from circa 1994 on it.

When you refer to an old game of yours, are you talking about one you owned or one you made?

One I made in native C code that ran in (initially) Dos. Later iterations ran on Solaris using the X11/X86 graphics interface. It was basically the Red Baron game I unsuccesfully tried to remake in SGDK1. I did finish the game (sorta) in SGDK2, but got distracted by the new bells and whistles in SGDK2.

I have a few really old Dos games I wrote floating around, I just need to find a 5 1/4" inch drive to read them.

so basically, youre making your own 8-bit console that reads almost any dos program that you may have made?

Pretty much. The SDK is pretty slick as well as it will run in a kiosk mode, where the boot is silent and it drops you immediately into the game environment. Much like the arcade games of the 90's.
