Re: Development of Blake's 7 (was OASIS development)

Cool news as always ;)
So is there hope for Christmas? ;)
(I mean: to have the game released for Christmas... 'cos I'm confident in the fact that there will be Christmas at the end of the year :lol: )

Re: Assembler / disassembler

Ok thanks!
In what I'm mainly working at these days (tape loading), cycles counting is really important and determines the way of coding.
I guess I'll have to try and learn now!

Re: Assembler / disassembler

Thanks fr the replies guys, it seems quite clear ;) I'll be a total newbie here, is there some user interface, kind of: "I write my code, it displays the address and cycles count automatically"? BTW, when I saw your source 'Load_Vader_0400_source.txt', I wonder what tool are you using because of the...

Assembler / disassembler

Hi all, Ok, I'm getting tired of writing my own assembler programs by hand in a TXT file, like this for instance: Address / cycles / op codes / Asm instructions / Comments 0431 6 20 6A E7 JSR #E76A Init du VIA ***ROM1.0: E6CA It's fine for short programs but when they start being longer than 100 byt...

Re: Orix update thread

Thanks!
Forget about the maths, if needed I'll do it ;)

It sounds quite good for only 4 levels.

Re: Orix update thread

It sounds quite good!
Streaming would be fun, just for curiosity what's the WAV file parameters? (if it's a WAV file...)
Frequency, bit resolution ?

Re: EDGE - a new game which needs sounds and music

Very nice ndeed. I dunno about music though - wouldn't some kind of sound effects be more useful? I imagine moments when the sound might be of use in the gameplay, like if you land next to a tile that has 3 sides, it gives you little cues about the walls around you on each tile, and so on .. Couldn'...

Re: Parity check live

It's actually not a code location problem, but a screen location problem ;) What happens is exactly this: loading a Hires screen while in Text mode... Everything gets scrambled, there's no escape! BTW loading a TEXT screen would also crush some of the display... From there I have several options: no...

Re: Parity check live

Discovered a problem: loading a Hires screen will scramble the results. Maybe I should have an option to avoid actually loading the file - just checking, but I want the utility to remain less than 256 bytes long, and I think there's only about 8 bytes left...

Re: Parity check live

Please welcome LOAD VADER !
:D

Tried to make the program a bit more user-friendly, and wrote a small instructions program.
Have fun (or not) with errors!

Amazing good idea!
And no extra hardware except the audio cable...
I love that!

Re: TapOric - android TAP player for Oric

Hello everyone, I'm glad to share some success with my last project dedicated to Oric: TapOric . Yes! I have a good feeling about this ;) Basically it's a TAP player, but it converts data to WAV-like-samples in real-time and sends it trough headset-output to Oric. Currently working are FAST mode, t...

Re: Parity check live

Well spotted, Sam 8) In France and Belgium! In French, saying (for instance) that your health "fait le yoyo" means it's going "up and down", so it could apply to the data quality on tape. Right now, I tend to prefer Load Vader (sorry ISS), compared to a re-loaded WTF? (which remains "wrong tape file...

Re: Parity check live

Ha ha thanks, kinda love Load Vader too... And ISS, very good memory ;) I had a bit of regret not having used "WTF?", but what refrained me from using it was the fact that it would give no good results in a search engine... Assuming someone would search for it ;) "I will always load you" makes me la...
