Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

I still think the first thing would be deciding the extra characters that are needed, if any, because I'm afraid ther won't be enough room for all! I assume we can have a different font for each language, so we can have all the extra characters for french? As far as I remember, most of the French g...

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

fine, i've tried the svn tool. Unfortunately, it seems that i've not succeeded in using it (or i've put a wrong password :)) You don't need a password to get read access, fetching files, looking at logs, etc... but you do indeed need a password to do any changes to the system. As far as my records ...

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

Chema: It looks like we have some volunteers for making a French version of Blake's 7. I guess we want to still be able to generate new (patched) versions of the game in English and Spanish, so ideally French should be an additional third target. Could you give them some guidelines on how to do that...

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

hep les frenchies, vous avez prévu une petite traduction en français? Merci beaucoup :wink: On en a discuté avec Chema, mais c'est loin d'être trivial: C'est pas un jeu moderne avec toutes les lignes proprement dans un fichier a part et facile a traduire... c'est directement dans le code source. Te...

Re: Merging video output?

So, to summarize what we had so far: - The desynchronization has nothing to do with the cleanliness of the signal coming from the clock, it has more to do with internal ULA implementation that takes a number of clock signals to initialize, which possibly depend on the electrical state, random values...

Re: Yet Another (EDIT: now also for Linux)

I guess I forgot to implement the CRC fix in the FloppyBuilder.
I could probably use your tool to validate that the result works :)

Re: Merging video output?

ISS: Thanks for the suggestion :) Yesterday I also contacted Mike Brown, since he had been working on the ULA quite extensively, by sending him that: Hi Mike, I'm currently doing some thought experiment involving hardware synchronisation of multiple Orics to try to get them to have their ULA synced ...

Re: Merging video output?

Since I asked the question a few months ago, I had some more brainstorming done with one of my colleagues who lent me his oscilloscope for a couple of week, and then with Thierry who helped me by doing a few experiments :) Basically there was multiple questions to solve: - Is it possible to power tw...

Re: Universal tracker

The idea is to first check the memory size/cpu usage of the AKY format compared to MYM.
If it's better, it's a no brainer, they are conceptually identical, and replacing the less efficient by the more efficient is the way to go.

Then I can take a look at having the native player converted to 6502 :)

Re: Universal tracker

Ideally, a native 6502 player would be nice to have: The mym format is not particularly compact, and the replayer itself is not specially fast either.
I wanted to port the Vortex tracker replayer... but that was when Twilighte was starting to fade away, kind of killed my motivation.

Re: FloppyBuilder evolution

I guess when we have this fully functioning version it will become the reference implementation of the loader system, which means I'll use it as the base for the updated OSDK sample project, which I guess means I'll have to make some small application that allows loading and saving of stuff.
