Atari 7800 Schematics Found in Dumpster Treasure Trove

Fifty pages of complete engineering schematics for the Atari 7800 and its associated ICs have been released by Curt, the historian behind the Atari Museum Website.

collapseos Z80-based Operating System

I recently stumbled across Collapseos – an operating system designed to run on Z80 hardware, such as the Sega Master System and Genesis.  Throughout life, I’ve seen restrictions* force some amazing innovations (think: that scene in Apollo 13!) and this is an excellent example of that:  Developers working under the confines of Z80 hardware to make […]

Please keep in mind that […]

Unreleased or Cancelled Jaguar Games

Jenovi just posted another great Cancelled/Unreleased video, this time focusing on the Atari Jaguar.  This episode brings to light a lot of the inner-workings of Atari during that time, which helps to explain why some of these games never saw the light of day. No spoilers, but as always, these are highly recommended for anyone […]
