Re: Port Crazee Rider?

It is an interesting take but Bezier curves are quite expensive and there are ways to make this simpler. The sites linked by DBug and other kittens (notably "the extent of the JAM" one: http://www.extentofthejam.com/pseudo/) pretty much detail everything there is to know to draw a raster road proper...

Re: Port Crazee Rider?

Interesting technique although I am willing to bet a few live kittens that it probably would have been much simpler to write that game in HIRES mode. Racing/driving games which use raster based road driving are actually playing to the strength of the Oric, especially the serial attributes since they...

Re: ROM 1.0 / 1.1 compatible programming trick?

By trying to make a code as compact as possible and Oric-1/Atmos compatible, I came with this idea: when I need to change a specific variable in memory that has a different address in ROM 1.0 and ROM 1.1, I can use an indexed instruction, and set an index with the right value according to the ROM. ...

Re: A new well-known compiler

Allow me to resurrect this very interesting thread/topic. ;) I have been working on optimizing a demo effect written in C these past weeks/months (a few hours at a time) and I have reached a point where further optimizations of the C code do not produce the expected result. => The generated code end...

Re: C/ASM profiling tools?

I've posted a follow up article on the same topic, with some concrete example of how to optimize code: http://www.osdk.org/index.php?page=articles&ref=ART12 Very nice article by the way! It gave me a few ideas for further optimizations of that vertical scroll routine but I must concentrate on my st...

Re: Psycho III

I think I have about 200-300 original tapes. Stored at my Parents' :D (which one day or another will need to move). It's actually "half a collection", because if I already have a transfered tape (scanned, pictured, with double-checked TAP transfer) I won't look for the real tape. Make sure they are...

Re: Oricutron feature request: external debugger support.

Your interpretation of this may differ from mine, but it looks like GDB doesn't obtain architecture information from the server, it has to be rebuilt for every architecture you want to debug. E.g. per https://docs.faircom.com/doc/knowledgebase/62424.htm "The gdb must be specially compiled to be awa...

Oricutron feature request: external debugger support.

I have created an issue for Oricutron requesting external debugger support. https://github.com/pete-gordon/oricutron/issues/126 Since I found that Chema's request in another post was absolutely sound and useful I had to make sure it was not forgotten. ;) If you find it important and worth sponsoring...

Re: Oric @DemoSplash party

I was aware of DemoSplash since a few people I follow on podcasts and Twitter have been mentioning it in the past few weeks but have not had a chance yet to look at the videos. It is really nice that they talked about the Oric and I will definitely have a look. In passing, I might actually go next y...

Re: Psycho III

Yeah I saw it as well, was too expensive for my tastes :D Well to be honest it took me a few hours before clicking on it. But we already had missed Psycho II and III once... And most of the time, we never hear of the games again, once they are bought on Ebay. But I won't ruin myself to save and sha...

Re: Serial/Parallel debug output

Just use the printer output, both Euphoric and Oricutron save the content to a text file, I used that numerous time for things like profiling for example. Looks for "PROFILER_USE_PRINTER" in this file: http://miniserve.defence-force.org/svn/users/dbug/tests/Profiler/profile.s Oh, this is exactly wh...

Re: C/ASM profiling tools?

It's my profiler: http://miniserve.defence-force.org/svn/users/dbug/tests/Profiler/ Maybe I should make it easy to add to OSDK projects and document how to use it... Thanks! For a start this is indeed useful and yup, this looks like this would belong as a part of the OSDK library. Obviously, it wou...

Done,
that being said, "prove you are a real human" is not equivalent to "not being a spammer".

Damn, both emails ended up in my gmail SPAM folder. :(
