Anyone else have a #Vectrex when they were kids?

I had one and I loved it! It was vector based so faux #3D in some games and was NOTHING like anything else around ..and it MAY be in my parents attic, but i'm pretty sure they made me sell it at a #yardsale... Like they did everything else that I didn't play with for 6 months... 😆

This is one of the few things I'm nostalgic about... #retro #rettogames #retrogaming #80s

In 1986, #YKK Global (famous Japanese zipper+ maker) created their own PC system: FACE16. I've been trying to find more info on this system online, but to no avail.

I've found photos from one Japanese blog, with no replies from the blog owner. I've also gotten information back from YKK Global, but it was relatively generic ("standard parts... office use")...

I appreciate any info on this, thanks!

Ground pin; Color video monitor input which appears to be a 7 pin DIN?; B/W video monitor input with similar inputs; SW0 (some kind of circular dial with dates?); SW1, set of dip switches

Further, a set of system identification/usage information. For brevity, skipping the Japanese text:
AC100V 50/60Hz

Finally, AC IN, with three AC OUT plugs above.

The screen shows some kind of software on display, with a blue background and text shown, and some visual imagery of the system components.

Underneath the monitor is the FACE16 system itself, however it looks different than the previous images shown in this Mastodon post; 
This system has two 3.5" floppy disk drives, stacked on top instead of beside each other. Two LEDs, one RED, one unlit. Power button on the bottom left of the system.

A keyboard is shown but details such as layout and design are not visible. It appears somewhat low profile.

The UT demo/FPS counter is starting to bug me. It locks out around 50FPS, but it FEELS faster than that.

I tried lowering some graphics settings to increase the FPS, but it doesn't change. I'm starting to wonder if its benchmarking capabilities are buggy.

In 1992 our Commodore Amiga platform game Hoi was released worldwide on two 3.5 inch diskettes, but as the US-based publisher didn't pay the royalties, we decided to release an AGA chipset remix for free in 1993.

Here's a full longplay video of the Hoi AGA Remix. We had lots of fun creating the game as three youngsters.

Wow. Okay.

It doesn't quite match the 128FPS he got in XP, but it's waaaay above the 50FPS he got in 98.

This also makes me think something is wonky with UT and a similarly low frame rate would be had in XP for that title.

Various alien races can be seen boarding some sort of transport or shuttle. A transparent, tubular, corridor protrudes from the side of a space habitat.

Since the early 00s I've been inclined to creativity. I started writing books at the age of 22, and although amatuer, managed to publish them myself.

Now, in 2023, I'm (slowly) working on writing two books, Dusk Incarnate, a modern vampire story, and Dissolution Protocol, a space opera.


I've also been big into making music, since 2017, when I was coming off the heels of harassment in a job for my transition (currently paused until I can reach a better position in life). Under the moniker #Eyeshadow2600FM, I've released 22 different pieces, and am working on my next (this number will change, and maybe so will this post!).


#sythwave #retro #electro


I also run a #SecondLife store, since 2015, which I originally erected in the virtual world as my first attempt at trying to make my own income, away from the world of the emotional distress of the public. Having taught myself how to model in Blender, I've amassed a business with nearly 300 different products, currently sitting on a sim that I own and run myself.

In-world location:

Web location:


I've also dabbled in the creation of #NFTs. I came into this particular world partially in-disgust at the artificial nature of it all. A lot of the "creators" posting auto-generated pieces that they didn't even make themselves, in a quick cash-grab attempt to make millions off of unsuspecting people.

So, ill-advised or not, I decided I wanted to buck this trend, and make something by hand. And I did. And then I got featured by the official Twitter account (before the website turned sour). I still have this collection, and another I started linked and listed on OpenSea, but am currently not adding anything new as I have a lot that I work on as it is.


In the real world, I'm currently a supervisor/manager at a large retail chain, and it is my hope that I can either move up the corporate ladder enough that I can just work from home, or use all of my skills listed here to simply not work for them anymore, at some point. And that's why I've written all of this here.


I've been on a lot of different instances, but has been my home for years, and will likely be for a long time to come.

@thomzane on oldskool systems, #samples are a mess. hardware like the #NES has dedicated sample hardware called DPCM (delta PCM) or some people call it DMC, you get these 1-bit bitstreams that tell the waveform whether it goes up or down over time, and then the hardware can play that back without much resource drain. When you use #famitracker, you can just load a WAV into a slot and for the most part (barring memory limitations) it automagically prepares it for playback.

Two other ways to do samples on #retro (which are closer to what *modern* hardware does) are either (1) to play the lowest note on the hardware where the sound wave for the square wave "sticks" high or low, and vary the volume to the level of the samples, or (2) use PWM, where rather than varying the amplitude of the wave (which is how you'd visualize it on a scope) you use another 1-bit bitstream and the length of time spent on a high or a low would pull the speaker in that direction for that amount of time, and the amount of time is so incredibly small that the speaker might not make it all the way to the other extreme before it gets sent in the other direction by the opposite bit.

Duke NES'em 3D was one of the first NES #chiptunes I ever wrote, so the song was written in soundtracker, and I used a bunch of shell scripts and compilers to compile it into an NSF.

For the voices themselves, first I got Jon St. John (Duke Nukem Himself) to record the lines. Then, to be honest I did a whole lot of bumping around in the dark. I didn't really know what I was doing, other than that I knew the hardware wouldn't push out a full-quality WAV. I somehow found that using a 3-bit amplitude worked out really well. Reflecting, the octal thing was almost definitely a mistake, because that's 3-bit and the amplitude on the square waves can be 4-bit. Maybe I just mis-entered the bit depth to convert the WAV I got from Jon? There was some PWM employed as well because I then converted the sample data to a macro that would get pushed out of a square wave channel rather than the sample channel. It..... kinda worked out? If you think it sounds good, I probably just threw my hands in the air and said "good enough" because the voice was one of the last things I added to the track.

So there you go! My method is NOT the way I would recommend doing it, or the way most people do it these days, but that's how you get that exact result.

Dear #retro #apple friends, did the Apple /// have the option to generate an interrupt on vertical blanking like, AFAIK, the //e?

I ask because the ///+ had an interlace mode switch and, by switching graphic buffers on vertical blanking, it *could* do 384x560 graphics.

Today I play mostly on an #Xbox Series X, #Nintendo Switch and a lot of #retro handheld.

Competitively I play #overwatch and #Fortnite

I'm also interested in game design and my dream is to make one.

I'm happy to join the community here and I hope to meet a lot of cool people here :)

Cheers !
