Orbit © 1978 Atari

No hay codigo para iniciales en Orbit:


 

ORBIT
• The initials “LR” (for Lyle Rains), “OR” (for Owen Rubin), “Ly” (for ?), “Mh” (for Morgan Hoff), and “PM” (for Paul Mancuso?) can be found in the program, coded as graphics. According to programmer Owen Rubin, it’s quite possible these can be triggered to appear on the screen!

https://www.arcade-history.com/?n=&page=detail&id=1890

Present in the same graphics ROM as the object graphics, these initials (L.R., O.R., L.Y., M.H., and P.M.) are those of people who worked at Atari's early arcade days:

Lyle Rains
Owen Rubin
(unknown who L.Y. is)
Morgan Hoff
Paul Mancuso

According to Rubin, the initials would be displayed if a special sequence was entered on the game's number pad. Unfortunately, close examination of the game's code reveals that this sequence is no longer present. Given that Atari had a thing against crediting their game programmers/designers/etc., it's very possible they discovered the code and removed it rather than erase the initials, figuring that there would be absolutely no other way consumers would be able to see these.

I.F.O. (Identified Flying Object) - O.V.I. Objeto Volador Identificado (1987)

Después de décadas de búsqueda pude encontrar una pelicula que vi en televisión de horario de trasnoche donde creo haber visto un atari 400 (realmente parece más un apple2), pero si recordaba el código basic y el joystick, además de la geografía semiárido, una bicicleta y un helicóptero remote control (RC).

Ahora revisando lo poco que aparece de código fuentes queda claro que es Atari Basic. POKE 53248

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0298093/

Tambien conocida como: Defense Play, I.F.O. Air Racing.

After decades of searching I was able to find a movie that I saw on late night television where I think I saw an Atari 400 (it really looks more like an apple2), but I remember the basic code and the joystick, in addition to the semi-arid geography, a bicycle and a remote control (RC) helicopter.

It has some Atari basic code, using POKE 53248
