Re: Pictoric (was: New conversion algorithm)

Thanks!! I tried the current AIC mode of the script, but the result is not that much clearer than my current algorithm...
There are more details, but the dither makes the whole thing looks a lot more "noisier".

Re: Assembly functions for Sedoric OPEN, TAKE, PUT, CLOSE

Yeah, I have seen this function. But it is just "passing through" sedoric DOS commands...
I am looking for something more similar to the assembly code of the READ/WRITE function, that bypass the sedoric DOS commands.

Re: glOric - a Fast 3D Engine for C and Assembler projects

Very interesting work!
Looking at your code quickly, I imagine that it would run faster if you used look up tables for the math functions.
I have a request by the way: Could you add a function that specifies the area of screen for rendering? (so that an interface can be placed around it)

Assembly functions for Sedoric OPEN, TAKE, PUT, CLOSE

I found somewhere (can't remember where) assembly code for the Sedoric functions READ and WRITE (as shown below). But I cannot find anywhere assembly code for OPEN, TAKE, PUT, CLOSE (there is some old documentation, but it is extremely complex to read). Has anyone come across ready made assembly cod...

Re: Pictoric (was: New conversion algorithm)

Am I right ? Exactly!!! And additionally, is it possible to optionally specify those two colors (rather than let the software choose)? If you could produce a version that does this, then I would like to integrate it with 8bit-Unity. My own AIC encoder is quite poor at reproducing details. For examp...

Re: Pictoric (was: New conversion algorithm)

Just a quick question: can this algorithm be adapted to spew out AIC format pictures???

Re: CC65 to DSK

Since my copy of cc65 resides at c:\cc65 then the environment variable needs to be name:cc65 path:c:\cc65\bin There was also a cc65_home environment variable that needs to be deleted. Thanks for this useful tip. I think this bug only affects people who have previously installed CC65. I will add a n...

Re: CC65 to DSK

I found a bug in the ALTAI/PASE joystick support. I updated the download link, please re-download! :oops:

Re: CC65 to DSK

Hey Guyz, I am back again with an improved Disk! I have clarified the keyboard keys in main menu, added support for ALTAI/PASE/IJK adaptor (with auto detection of adaptor type), improved the FPS (slightly) and tamed the drift. I tested the joystick support in Oricutron, but I would really appreciate...

Re: CC65 to DSK

Does anyone here have a PASE or IJK joystick interface?
I am implementing both in 8bit-Slicks (and emulating them on the 8bit-Hub), but don't have the "real" hardware to test that it works correctly...

Re: CC65 to DSK

Thanks for the feedback guyz. I will clarify the control keys in menu (A D Ctrl). Regarding the excessive drift, it is due in part to low frame rate. I need to optimize a couple of routines in the code. I will release an improved version soon.. Also, i will soon release the new 8bit unity with Oric ...

Re: CC65 to DSK

Alright, it's time to reveal the first "beta" of 8bit-Slicks for the Oric (all 48K models). The game is more or less playable with 2 players, but slows down a lot when adding 3rd/4th player. Keys are WASD+CTRL and IJKL+RET. I will work next on improving frame rate and adding online functionality nex...

Re: Universal tracker

On a side note, have you guyz heard of this: http://jiggawatt.org/muzak/xpmck/
Has anyone investigated porting this to the Oric?

Re: CC65 to DSK

A little teaser of things to come... (took me just 30 min to get it working on the Oric, thanks to 8bit-Unity)
Have a good week everyone, and see you again next week-end!
