Kurzbeschreibung

28. Oktober 2005
Maybe it was the recent Atari 2600 milestone anniversary that fueled nostalgia for the golden days of computer and console gaming. Every Game Boy must ponder his roots from time to time. But whatever is driving the current retro gaming craze, one thing is certain: classic games are back for a big second act, and they're being played in both old and new ways. Whether you've just been attacked by Space Invaders for the first time or you've been a Pong junkie since puberty, Chris Kohler's Retro Gaming Hacks is the indispensable new guide to playing and hacking classic games. Kohler has complied tons of how-to information on retro gaming that used to take days or weeks of web surfing to track down and sort through, and he presents it in the popular and highly readable Hacks style. Retro Gaming Hacks serves up 85 hard-nosed hacks for reviving the classic games. Want to game on an original system? Kohler shows you how to hack ancient hardware, and includes a primer for home-brewing classic software. Rather adapt today's equipment to run retro games? Kohler provides emulation techniques, complete with instructions for hacking a classic joystick that's compatible with a contemporary computer. This book also teaches readers to revive old machines for the original gaming experience: hook up an Apple II or a Commodore 64, for example, and play it like you played before. A video game journalist and author of Power Up: How Japanese Video Games Gave the World an Extra Life, Kohler has taught the history of video games at Tufts University. In Retro Gaming Hacks, he locates the convergence of classic games and contemporary software, revealing not only how to retrofit classic games for today's systems, but how to find the golden oldies hidden in contemporary programs as well. Whether you're looking to recreate the magic of a Robotron marathon or simply crave a little handheld Donkey Kong, Retro Gaming Hacks shows you how to set the way-back dial.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Relive The Classic Games Of Yesteryear 24. November 2005
Von Dan McKinnon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Ever miss the days of old when the Atari 2600 and the original Nintendo ruled the land? Wish you could relive the old days of Pac Man and Super Mario Brothers but you don't have your classic systems any more?

If you answered yes to any of these questions and still have a hunger to play or at least learn about the classic games of the past, then Chris Kohler's 'Retro Gaming Hacks' is for you!!

While it's called a "Hacks" book, this book is mainly comprised of talking about emulators and how to play these classics on your PC, Macintosh, or another gaming machine. While the book goes into detail about buying classic games and systems online and/or buying vertical JAMMA machines, the easiest and most economical way is to run emulators. Since the games of old all use the most basic of graphics engines and memory relative to the computers of today, the best way you can experience said games is via the home computer route.

With over 400 pages of material, Mr. Kohler talks about systems such as the Atari 2600, 5200, and 7800. The Colecovision, Commodore 64, and the Amiga. The original Nintendo, SNES, Sega Master System, Genesis and Dreamcast are not forgotten either. Basically if there is an emulator available for a gaming system, this book covers it all.

After discussing a myriad of ways to find and run emulators, Chris talks about some basic programming and how to write your own DOS based games, and also discusses how even Dreamcasts and XBOXs can serve as great emulator machines to play these stapled of the video game world.

If you collect, play, or just want to learn more about the classic games of the past, this book is for you. If you already know how to use emulators for the PC but want to branch out and learn to emulate on other operating systems, this book is for you. If you just want to take a stroll down memory lane and relive part of your childhood, this book is for you.

A very entertaining read, and great for hobbyists that love to tinker with old game systems and don't mind getting their wire cutters out or sautering iron hot and ready to go.

***** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fun topic, great book 13. November 2005
Von Jack D. Herrington - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
If you have any interest in reliving your gaming past on Apple ][s, or old Nintendos or Ataris, you will love this book. The book has recipes for emulating all of those consoles and even building and hacking your own hardware. I really enjoyed reading this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen How cool is this! 2. Februar 2006
Von J. Thompson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Some of these 'hacks' I knew about, many i did not. But every 'hack' in here offered some level of detail that made my retro gaming experience just that much better.

The bulk of the hacks are focused on emulators - how to get them, how to use them, etc. Which means that you will be Retro-gaming on your PC. Before I nabbed this book, I thought that would be a slightly less than awesome experience. Mainly because the controls leave a lot to be desired (who wants to use a keyboard to play Satan's Hollow.) But thanks to one of the hacks, I now know where to go to get retro game controllers that fit right into your PC.

While retro-gaming on the PC is the the focus of the book, it by no means describes all the content. There is tunds of cruncy goodness in here on obtaining old platforms and cartridges, to hacking your old cartidges / games into your modern platform.

All in all a joy to read, and even more fun to implement. Pick it up! Its a good 'un.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful Book!!! 9. März 2008
Von Mark Zablocki - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
What an absolutely awesome book! Mr. Kohler did a wonderful job. I love this book and recommend it to everyone interested in retro gaming. It is packed full of useful and insiteful information. To top it all off, the book is in a fun, easy-to-read and enjoyable format. I can't recommend it enough.

I hope Mr. Kohler does a revised and updated edition of this book. The information in it is too good to be allowed to just fade away. I'll definately buy an updated copy.

Just one comment to the author Chris Kohler should he read this review: How about a hack about the Scot Adam's text adventure series for the section of your book on Text Adventure games? Scot Adam's was big in the early 80s.

Thanks!
