Circus Linux! 1.0.3 released

I’ve released version 1.0.3 of “Circus Linux!,” my “Circus Atari” clone
written using SDL. (The gameplay is quite similar to Breakout or Arkanoid)

This version adds support for real, honest-to-goodness Atari 2600 paddle
controllers. (This is thanks to a simple adapter you can build to
connect paddles to a PC joystick port. See the instructions that come
with “Stella,” the Atari 2600 emulator for Linux and Windows.)

All that I really needed to do was reverse the X value coming in, since
the paddle input is simply one axis and one firebutton.

A friend of mine is building the adapter for me. He’s only got one DB9
port working so far. Once it’s all finished and I can hook up the paddles
to port 1 (instead of 2), I’ll see about adding two paddle support, and
maybe bumping the game up to four players (MAYBE). :slight_smile:
