Re: JOric

Based on the symptoms, I'd say that you are having problems with all the SEDORIC based programs (Space 1999, Buggy Boy...).
These tend to switch between the ROM and the Overlay, while more recent demos and games (Blakes, Pushing...) are never enabling the ROM at all.

Re: JOric

This tool was very useful in finding a couple of bugs in my VIA emulation. I'm glad this tool from 2011 is still useful so long after it was done :) (Reference to this page: http://forum.defence-force.org/viewtopic.php?t=718&start=15) Your results seems very good, the only difference I see is on th...

Re: Upgrade Time: Encounter

There's the W8912 command, unfortunately that one uses A and X to pass parameters, instead of the PARAMS zone.

Re: Upgrade Time: Encounter

Well, the volume is per channel, and you can decide on which channel(s) you decide to mix the noise on, so if you reserve one chan for the noise, you can have it at half volume for sure :)

Re: Connectivity problems...

So, we've been running with the new router for a couple of weeks now, have any of you experienced any of the timeouts / inability to access the pages recently?

Re: Upgrade Time: Encounter

I think it would be rather easy with Twilighte's routines to play a sample sound. But I can't recall the memory size that such a sound would require. Nah, I want to stay 100% BASIC. BTW, if the sound adds delay in the playing, it would be cool to have an option to disable it. Nothing worse than hav...

Re: Upgrade Time: Encounter

One thing that is still sorely lacking, is audio. I'm thinking that it could be nice to have some simple music playing when the title picture is showed, and maybe some simple "foot steps", "wind", "bird chirping" effects on the various scenes? Not sure how complicated it would be to do a dog growlin...

Re: Upgrade Time: Encounter

Stupid question: why did you choose to focus on Encounter, especially? It's one of these games I had back in the days, I never finished it because my English sucked, and I thought it would be easier to not get lost if that was a graphical adventure like Doctor Genius. (I even spent a bit of time du...

The fifth part of Upgrade Time is now on youtube:


This time the topic is "how to improve the user experience", so don't expect any new fancy graphics :)

Re: OSDK Linux/macOS recent version?

I've not done anything about the osxdk except giving my benediction for the fork :) I refuse to huse github / bitbucket or any hosted repository for various reasons (religious, conceptual, pernnity, etc...) in general, and I dislike git as a source control system in particular (I see the point of ho...

Re: Upgrade Time: Encounter

It's the case because I stick to black and white, which are the default INK and PAPER value, so all these algorithm basically only need to "put the pixel" without having to wonder about the attribute placements. That being said, in the previous video, the pictures of the staircase had glitchy colore...

Re: Experimental very fast tape loading

My proposal is modest but I think it makes sense - in short you don't need PHP/RTI in the interrupt routine. Use only RTS instead - gain 3 cycles and 1 precious byte. :) Nice one :) Indeed, the only difference between RTI and RTS is that it restores the status register, which you don't need to do s...
