Seems to be Pro level graphics form the analysis anyway. Maybe I will get tempted :D. Sure Tenka, while you do that I'll be pretending I am playing the real classic, Boot Hill. Graphics have come on a little since then lol I remember playing this with my Dad in an arcade :rip:

:teehee: here's me trying to be majorly retro with my reference. Mission failed... Pretty entertaining learning this to be the game you played with your Dad :) How old were you at the time?

:) It was released in 1977. I probably played it while on holiday in 1978 so I would have been 13. My Dad died quite young at 61 in 2000. That background wasn't generated, it was some kind of static image on the glass. Some games didn't have this so it was just the white stuff, two gunslingers, bullets and wagon, etc. Loved the music too, we thought it was hilarious.

Pong was the first one I remember and then a football variation. Breakout, Space Invaders, Asteroids, Galaxian, Pac Man, Defender (amazing sound in this one), Missile Command, Centipede, Donkey Kong, Scramble then Star Wars was roughly what I remember. I needed to check here to see what came before what https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_ ... me_history

So I think about 1980 was the most influential to me and probably why I got interested in programming and electronics. These were all video games played on a monitor. There were other games before this like a submarine torpedo game and a driving game. Pong was pretty amazing.

Perhaps not surprising, RDR2 is now delayed into "Spring 2018". A wee bit disappointing, BUT it will now allow me to concentrate on Destiny 2. :D Well, at least until Battlefront 2 comes out anyway!
