Re: Horizontal HIRES and Text scrolling code needed.

Does it has to be HIRES? If you can afford to have a repeating pattern, you can do some fancy things, like the wobble effect in Barbitoric which is 100% TEXT mode. http://defence-force.org/pages/demos/barbitoric/pics/barbitoric_6.gif Also using TEXT mode you can use double size characters, which hal...

Re: Oric DSK Manager

And yeah, my copy of the SEDORIC manual is definitely getting dog-eared at the moment .. all the commands I should know, feel I should be an expert on, but in actuality I have no clue about. Do you have an actual english version of the manual? On the library I only have the French version (and not ...

Re: Spam and Inactive users

You're welcome :)

I'm trying my best to make/keep the whole DF thing in the way I would like many places to be, with a reasonably good signal/noise ratio, no name calling and community fight, free sharing of information, etc... I admit that sometimes I lose my cool on some topic, but I'm trying :)

I believe you are right, I did not know about the merged files either until last week.

Spam and Inactive users

Thanks to the manual registration, the forum has avoided a massive wave of spam, since Saturday morning about 150 accounts have been created but they stayed inactive. What I did is that I changed the "captcha" question on the registration page, and I mass deleted all the inactive users. What that me...

Re: INSERT MASTER DISC IN DRIVE A

Sorry, I was gone for the week-end (family celebration thingy), I'll take a look later. I did try to patch the .h already a few days ago, but it did not work, I guess I fumbled when I did it. For reference my version looked like that: Line 265: 0x49,0x4E,0x53,0x45,0x52,0x54,0x20,0x4D,0x73,0x74,0x20,...

Re: Oric DSK Manager

Do you think that loading the three patch files one after the other, instead of as a merged one, would still work fine?

Re: Upgrade Time: Encounter

I managed to find a bit of free time for a new video, this time I worked on the replayability of the game by adding a high-score table.

Re: Horizontal HIRES and Text scrolling code needed.

HIRES scrolling is generally a very context specific operation, and ultimately it depends on a number of factors: - How much memory are your willing to use - Do you need to scroll the entire HIRES screen - Does the scroll area contains attributes or not - Do you use some backbuffer (or work directly...

Re: bas2tap/tap2dsk bugs

I guess we could just extend the TestSuite with a few programs to test these cases. http://miniserve.defence-force.org/svn/public/pc/tools/osdk/main/TestSuite/ The idea is the following: :: :: The idea is to run each of the OSDK tools to generate a particular set of data, :: and then check if the re...

Re: INSERT MASTER DISC IN DRIVE A

The version that comes with Tap2Dsk *is* a master version, else the SYS, INIT, MOVE, etc... commands would not be working. Do you know where I can find a patched version of Sedoric 3, or at least a version of Sedoric 3 with the patching routine, known to be working? If you find one, I could update t...

Re: INSERT MASTER DISC IN DRIVE A

So, regarding Sedoric, what I'm using is the version that comes with Tap2Dsk, which is basically a "source-codeified" version of Sedoric 3 (without the patches) I tried the patch earlier, for some reason it did not work, I know the patch was applied because I got "Mst 3" in the text. Does Sedoric 4 ...

INSERT MASTER DISC IN DRIVE A

I've some more questions about Sedoric. The operating system is "bank based" with various commands present in various blocs: "BACKUP" is in BLOC 2, "DELETE" and "MOVE" are in BLOC 1, etc... The first time you access a command which is in a bloc that is not yet loaded, you get this annoying message: ...
