I agree! and hopefully, here, I can safely re-iterate my sentiments from the
message board without fear of the Bane. It seems to me that with your
amazing visual and pauls amazing audio accomplishments recently, the
rennaissance of the 2600 is truly at hand. It is doing things I never
imagined possible, and I cannot wait to see the first homebrew
projects/demos/games that really show off these new techniques (just the
proof of concept work is already incredible. I was floored by that baby,
floored by an actual colour bitmap being displayed by a 2600, floored by
pauls music, etc.) Thank you so much for all your hard work

(aka Godzilla on AA message boards,)
(aka Kickass from Stella long ago.)

So... whatever happened to that tank and airplane game I was working on with
? (piero ?) god it was forever ago. He said he finished the kernal... (ah,
erik mooney,)

(started with this message many moons ago:
here erik reveals himself, after working in secret with me
the graphics data & rough game info (after erik gave up,) I need to find
those old iffs :-)
