Re: Early games were much more ambitiously programmed no?

Indeed, the control system on standard joysticks is probably the worst thing about it (graphics aren't that bad considering the colour/ scrolling restrictions on the standard ST). Really messed up. Yes it was US Gold, it was blatantly just a cash in. There is a version of an STe demo (in grey-scale...

I'm guessing those were offers for noticeably less than the hilarious asking price of €30000 :D

Re: [Sinclair] - RZX movies for Atari?

Just saw this post and had been thinking something similar for a while... Do we have any input recording/playback file format for ST emulators? I haven't heard of any, but it'd be pretty amazing to have the capability of doing a TAS (see tasvideos.org for some examples, like the console emulators an...

Re: "Metroid"

I found the bug! So now it should work on Hatari and on a real machine! I was accidently writing to one of the blitter registers when I shouldn't and that caused it to crash when I removed the mainsprite from the screen at the time I load a new room when you go into a door.

Re: Looking for 2 games name

A bit late now, but the puzzle game sounds a lot like Block Out... not sure if there were sampled voices in the ST version, but the arcade version had some kind of sarcastic commentary by the machine between levels.

Ahh, but if you check the two he sold already, each one went for $1250... although I don't see a "make an offer" link. He almost trebled the asking price for the final one??

Re: klapauzius.net is online

The different tones when you hit blocks and the unhurried speed (at least on level one, which I couldn't beat) make it quite relaxing - I gotta try this on my STE!
Unsurprisingly, it was not easy to play with my laptop's touchpad... :)

That's pretty extreme! I can see why a team would do that when porting old games to modern hw, but on an ST?? Is the game engine's emulator fast? :P

Guess so. But the SV is made by people who want to use it themselves, not make money. Personally my interest in this project is that I want a really good & compatible graphics solution for my own CT60. A very selfish goal, I guess :) Hopefully that ensures that it's useful to others too. I don'...

What a prat! So he buys up Falcons, does nothing with them to add any value, and sells them back at over twice the price?
