And then things really took off:. The rest of the group took turns polishing, hacking and tweaking until the program was a video game.
Two ships, controlled by two humans, maneuvered around the collapsed star's gravity well. The ships fired rockets in an attempt to obliterate each other.
The ships could thrust, turn and move through hyperspace. Russell and his crew never thought anyone would ever pay for interactive entertainment like Spacewar!
That seems crazy now, but in computers were uncommon. Household computers were unheard of. Video games weren't ready for the consumer market.
The Precision CRT Display Type 30 demonstrated here is one of the family of computer-operated displays designed by Digital Equipment Corporation to extend greatly the usefulness of the computers.
With the unique Light Pen Type 32, a completely untrained operator can communicate with the computer. For example, the Light Pen aimed at the scope face could signal the computer to modify an engineering drawing displayed at the scope.
The modified drawing would be displayed instantaneously. Fleet Action , a new old-style game based on the original Spacewar! Kuhfeld's flavor of Spacewar!
This application is actually up for a re-write. Frame by Frame On: display each frame, Off: double frames, no flicker. Emulation speed Normal x 1 Faster x 1.
Clear Scores. Special subpixel rendering is employed in order to boost the visible resolution beyond the physical resolution provided by the display element in the browser.
Compare these contemporary photos:   . Versions available by the "versions menu" at the top left of the emulated display : Spacewar!
The program is dated "24 sep 62" and is loaded from an authentic binary paper-tape image spacewar3.
Colission radii and turning pivots of the ships have been adjusted accordingly. This is quite similar to the presentation seen in other emulations.
Please mind that the changes have minor effects on the gameplay. The code is based on the original PDP-1 assembler sources by Steve Russell as available at bitsavers.
Landsteiner, ; this is not an authentic version! The program features the pre-particle-system "Crock Explosion"  and optionally a faster movement of the starfield sense switch 4 , torpedoes are single shot only no salvoes.
Some of the differences are more cosmetical: The ships' exhaust flames are half the size of later versions, also the display of the starfield hasn't found its final form yet starting at an other position as compared to later versions.
Moreover, the original starfield routine, found here, is modulating the varying brightnesses of the stars by how often the individual stars are drawn, whereas later versions are using the built-in intensity levels of the Type 30 CRT display instead.
For more on the making-of of Spacewar! The label suggests that this was a tape sent from MIT to an other facility.
This earlier version shows minor differences regarding the polarity of the sense switch settings. The program is presented here with two patches applied, namely the hyperspace-patch to include Martin Graetz's original hyperspace routine, the " Minskytron hyperspace "  and its "warp-induced photonic stress emission", and the auto-restart patch for seemless playing.
There are exactly three jumps to hyperspace per player. This represents the the game as described and depicted in J. It still lacks a scorer-patch, which seems to be lost.
The patches are provided by the paper tape images " hyperspace The auto-restart patch was to be applied to the hyperspace-patch and is by this officially a patch to a patch.
Thus, loading the full program had become a fairly complex affair then, involving up to 6 tapes. Listings of Spacewar!
Please mind that this is still the game early in development. The game requires a manual restart in this situation. This is Spacewar!
Moreover, version 4. Otherwise most of the stars would remain invisible. Like other version of Spacewar! The source code is dated "spacewar 4.
The code is run from a binary paper tape image sw41f. This is an authentic representative of the 4. Additionaly to some internal modifications it features, like all versions 4, a working single shot mode for torpedoes sense switch 3.
The code is run from a binary paper tape image spacewar4. A visually distinctive detail of versions 4. Also, two ships colliding in free fall in the center will explode at the "antipode" rather than at the center as with earlier versions of the game.
Like all versions by Monty Preonas, it usues an implementation of the background starfield alike the one of Spacewar! The game features a special Twin Star mode to be engaged by sense-switch 2 accessible by the options menu at the top right corner of the screen.
This visually distorted mode puts the Needle in the center of the screen in between a doubled sun and draws any other objects relatively to this ship.
Moreover, some items are drawn at a double offset and torpedoes are displaced for real, resulting in a quite vexing game play.
This mode was probably initially intended as an ego view from the Needle's perspective and left as-is as an amazing novelty.
Compare "Spacewar! A patch for a special on-screen scorer is available for this version see the note on scoring below. The game was newly assembled including the dedicated scorer patch.
Sources "spacewar4. Altered starting positions are probably the most interesting feature of this version. Controls have been swapped accordingly to accommodate for this.
These are the changes as applied according to the description provided by John W. Andrews: Altered setup position width spaceships facing the central star, The length of exhaust flames indicates the amount fuel left, Ships collide with background stars on re-entry from hyperspace, A collision with the gravitational star kills in the default setting, 36 torpedoes per ship instead of the standard supply of Reconstruction by me, N.
My own tour de force on Spacewar! Think of Ptolemaic space travel with the Wedge orbiting in epicycles. For the changes applied and related deliberations compare the discussion here.
Please mind that this is not an authentic program! Bonus track 1: Spacewar! This is a scaling factor, therefor, the lower this value, the more the trajectories of the torpedoes will be modulated by what resembles a sine-like curve.
The effect varies with speed and position. To demonstrate the effect, this value has been set to the lowest value 0 , with the default value being the maximum amount of 9 bitwise right-shifts effecting in straight trajectories.
This module uses the original code of "Spacewar! Additionally, the torpedo life-time is set to be a bit higher value, to emphasize the effect.
For hacking parameters or game constants in general, see the options menu at the top right of the screen. Bonus track 2: Snowflake This is another famous visual PDP-1 program from the s, an early example of computer animations.
An alternative 8-dots display mode is available by operating sense switch 2, see the options menu. While there is not much information to be found on this program, you may read some about it here.
The program is run from a paper tape image " dpys5. Note on Scoring In the original game, the game halts at the end of a match which may be set up for a spefic number of games by console switches not implemented in this emulation and scores are displayed in binary using the console lights for the accumulator and the IO-register.
The Game Spacewar! Sense Switches Some settings to modify the game's behavior could be adjusted by flipping one of the sense switches, an array of 6 switches dedicated to user interaction on the PDP-1 's console.
Hacking Parameters Most versions of Spacewar! You can force them to show or hide by the use of the options menu.
There is a service screen available providing information on the emulation and the code modules loaded, accessible by the small button at the lower right corner of the display's bezel, just where the cable outlet of the light pen would have been.
This button also triggers a full reset of the emulation. Please mind that the stars will be actually as the bright as in the frame you will happen to grab.
This migh be an odd frame showing them just by the dimm afterglow. You may want to retry in this case.
The game is officially referred to as "Spacewar! Please mind that the character-set of the PDP-1 did not include an exclamation mark while Steve Russell did put some importance in it , so this might be found on handwritten labels only.
