Re: Cumulus Preorder Thread

If you can print a case in black and white instead of black and orange you could switch my 1 possible to 2. :)
I'm just waiting on a few more comments/reviews from people that have them before switching one to a definite. (EDIT: Updated, but check that with metadata directly)

Re: Line routine - Second attempt

Re:

Ok, so someone else can mull over the math concept and possibly come up with a solution... Here is the simple part of the math: X1 - X2 = DX Y1 - Y2 = DY If DX > DY THEN DX / DY = number of steps in Y per step in X ELSE DY / DX = number of steps in X per step in Y However... that isn't an even numb...

Re: The Return of Viking Chess (Hnefatafl)

@jamesd: Yup, I'm a bit weak on the use of pointers but I like the loop unrolling. I'm sure I'll use that somewhere, thanks. ... The problem with loop unrolling in C is that pointers are 16 bit and the compiler will probably generate a lot of extra code that may not be needed if you were to do it i...

Re: Speech

Twilight didn't comment much of the code but as he mentioned in his post, the text to phonemes table is at the bottom and the top must be the data for phonemes. There should be pointers to where each phoneme data starts and if it's like other speech programs I've seen it should just loop outputting ...

Re: The Return of Viking Chess (Hnefatafl)

Thanks Dbug/Chema, This is what I had before using compression: #include <lib.h> unsigned int ArrCount=7200; unsigned char _MaskC[7200]= { 0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40, 0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40,0x40...

Re: Cumulus Preorder Thread

Since I'm in the US I'd need to know about power requirements, shipping costs and payment method before I could commit to one. (EDIT: DONE)
So possibly 1.

Digging up this old thread... I got busy at work and didn't really have time to do anything with this and then I just sort of let it die. Recently a thread about hacking Donkey Kong for the Apple II and the poster suggested using the Mockingboard. FYI, the Mockingboard is a sound board that adds 1 o...
