Pickaxe Brad!

Happy birthday, Mr. Becker.  Somebody give this man a Jopac!
What happened to Odyssey Game Maker?  It's been 5 months since it was announced.  Still no download link!

:-[   Many thanks Rafael. I would not have thought, that today someone on the other side of the earth is thinking of me.. I feel flattered.

And yes. I am a big Videopac fan. I never thought in the early 80s, that this love will hold till now 2022.

And I think this love will not end in the next 52 years.  :D

Many thanks Mr.Leahy (I hope, this name is correct).  :)

Oh, I have several Jopac consoles and the games.  ;)
I love the machines and the games with the fantastic covers. They have a special place in my heart.

Because it's my birthday today, I can wish for something. And I wish from you Brad, that you continue to program fantastic Videopac games. We need good programmers in our small Videopac/Odyssey2 community... :)

For your birthday, I will promise to continue creating VP/O2 games. The "fantastic" part will be trouble, because I have "One-hit wonder" and "beginner's luck" written all over me.  I'm still trying to get the cartridge in...

The most important thing is, not to be stressed. You don't work at Philips, who gave you 3 months to finish a game. If you have a good idea, try programming the game. If it works well... ok, if it doesn't work...  is also good.

At some point you will have your second Videopac game and I am already looking forward to it.  :)
