Re: Merging video output?

You are completely mad! But this looks very interesting...

I have nothing to suggest, unfortunately, but will wait for any advance with a lot of anticipation!

Re: Universal tracker

Hi Targhan! Thanks for popping up here and for your fantastic tracker. I once had a look a Vortex too, as Dbug did, but never continued with the project. These trackers (yours looks incredible!) produce really good music, but I always found impossible to spend >10 K for the music and player only, an...

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

I replayed version 1.1 directly from the episode 1 beginning until the end of episode three with the same or even more pleasure. No bug to report. I will also play a third time, in order to write down, for posterity, all the actions that must be done, when and where they must be done to win. Thus, ...

Re: FloppyBuilder evolution

Jede, unfortunately, does not have his unit operative :( In any case the routines are now working for saving and loading with correct error checking (I pulled the disk out while writing , and back in and it saved the game properly :mrgreen: and worked for Microdisc (my unit with real FDD) and Jasmin...

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

Thanks Dom! And congratulations for finishing the game !

@jede...that is a beta version you are showing. It does not display the version number and 'loading game data' message, and somewhat the continue from saved game is not working...

Re: FloppyBuilder evolution

Alright, the game now works (tested only under emulation) with both Microdisc and Jasmin :D It boots, works, saves and loads on both systems. I still need to test it with real drives and floppies, as well as with Cumulus, because several routines had to be rewritten. Current code is in the repositor...

Re: FloppyBuilder evolution

Hi all! With the enormous help of Fabrice Frances (he is doing the work, really) I am not only improving the disk routines in FloppyBuilder ()and therefore, in Blake's 7) a lot, but also started working on supporting the Jasmin. The new routines in Microdisc are so robust that you can pull out the d...

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

Patience, Dom. And if you need any help, just drop me a pm :) About the protection thing... I am not sure what you mean. The dsk seems to be unprotected for cumulus, as it does not show the P at one side (that status is changed using one of the buttons at the right, I think the on in the middle). So...

Re: Label and layout

Ah, ok. Sorry I misunderstood.

Just measured one: height is something such as 104 mm, and width 84mm, with a spine of aprox 6mm in width, and the short side that comes after the spine is around 16mm, leaving aprox 67mm for the back side.

Not sure if I made myself understandable :wink:

Re: Label and layout

My 3" label for Blake's 7 was made by hand on Publisher, and is 70x70mm and with a spine of 5mm

For 3.5 disks there are templates available (Avery templates are quite famous) and they can be installed on Publisher directly through the template configuration options.

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

@iss nice configuration! Which is that Micdorisc clone? And the floppy emulator... is it an HxC or a Gotek with an alternate firmware?

@star42, thanks. About the French version, it is only a matter of finding someone to translate that huge amount of text :)
