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: Oric DSK Manager

I've a new bug report :) ISS linked a patched Sedoric floppy on the http://forum.defence-force.org/viewtopic.php?f=25&p=17473#p17473 thread, I wanted to extract the patch files using ORIC DSK Manager, but when I tried to load it, I got an error dialog: "Error in Archive Operation See the application...

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: ...

Re: OSDK 1.11

Let's be clear on one point: Me migrating to GIT would not imply to me migrating to GITHUB or any other online GIT hosting system. As I've said numerous time: Defence-Force.org has been running for longer than half of the websites around here, it was here before GoogleCode, it was here before CodePl...

Guess it does not hurt trying.

Re: OSDK 1.11

The original reason for the OSDK having its own set of Fabrice tools is that originally this repository on SourceForge did not exist, and Fabrice builds were compiled for DOS, failing to run on 64 bit windows. But yeah, I should import all his changes, should probably do that when I get the time to ...

Re: OSDK 1.11

So, quick answers: - Regarding Staging, I see what the point is for normal development, but GIT is restricting users that do not need the workflow. In a particular case we have files (configuration files) to share with a third party, and for their workflow it's practical to use git. So we modify the...

Re: OSDK 1.11

I do use git (at work) and I absolutely despise the interface (textual commands) as well as the lack of shortcuts for the most commonly used operations. Basically it's a geek tool designed by somebody for his own purpose, it does that brilliantly, and it has become a de-facto standard not because it...

Re: Upgrade Time: Encounter

Due to real life interferences (I'm on call for the next 5 days at work, and next weekend I've to attend some family celebration), the next episode of Upgrade Time will be delayed (and probably the next one as well), so here is a teaser to let you patient:

Re: OSDK 1.11

The reason we are on SVN is because historically there's been many persons not even knowing what source control was, who never really did any programming, just wanted to get a small game done, and SVN + tortoise was an easy way to get their code present in the system very simply. I personally dislik...
