Jeskola Buzz 1.2x — 2008 updates

Oskari Tammelin aka Jeskola has jumped into the Buzz 1.2b (Oct 2000) replacement madness that’s been going on the past several years by returning to Buzz, rebuilding the lost 1.2b code, and giving it a much needed update and bringing it up to date while at the same time adding new features, replacing old hacks developers have used in the past by giving them native interfaces, and much more.  Serious progress has also been made — and in part made Oskari’s job of returning to Buzz much easier — by the open sourced and very impressive programs Buze and Aldrin (linux) with more progress to come, but more on that some other time. Below are a few images of the current Buzz beta and some links to the latest beta and change log:


Gameboy Camera (DJ Edit)

My next post was originally going to be about the Gameboy DS Lite. I recently bought a Krimson Red model (the previous models actually put me off) along with an R4DS Flashcart so I can load up homebrew roms and my own little experiments. However, I recently found myself taking a quick trip to Gamestop and stumbled upon a used/dusty lower shelf of Gameboy and Gameboy Advance accessories. Immediately my eye hit an old GB Carrying case, which my brother had with his original greybrick way back in the day. At 99 cents I couldnt pass it up…and since it was made for the original GB there was plenty of room to put my GBC, NDS, and all their accessories. That and its all retro and old and clunky.. the irony of it entertains me. When I took the GB Carrying case off the shelf, behind it I saw 2 GB Cameras for sale. The typical red one and a green one. I picked up the red one. Originally thinking only about the lowfi camera fun I could have with it I had completely forgotten about the DJ mode hidden on the cartridge under “Games”. In any case, that was a well spent 2$’s. Now, here’s some details on the GB Camera sequencer/synth/mixer…
