Re: Assembler video tutorials on Vretrocomputing

Re: Devpac debugging tutorial

@Total Eclipse: Like Keops, I also debug on Devpac; sometimes on a Windows laptop, but mainly on the real machine, as its the only way to be 100% sure its going to work! ;) (I just code for the TT though). While we are at it, it would be useful to bring to the surface the 'Devpac 2 Part 1' document ...

Re: new Nova drivers

Hmm.. I dont really have time (or much mental clarity!) due to my 2 young children waking up through the night, especially if I turn on the noisy SCSI TT HDD! However, when Idek asked for beta testers for the new unified driver, I felt obliged to offer, as I really appreciate what he has done for th...

Re: Looking for TOS with mushroom clouds

I had a TT that was used in an industrial warehouse and had custom roms with smiling faces instead of bombs and the company logo instead of the Atari symbol on initial boot up.

or do you mean that you want more physical channels on the TT which is possible due to its higher CPU speed? :) Thats the one! :) I cant remember exactly offhand, but in the readme it was something like twice the no. of sample playback channels with the special TT module... that wasnt ready yet.

Re: MMX

All valid points above and of course any new multimedia extension code would not work on older code. But In my opinion, I think that Gunnar and team may 'pivot' to supporting the Atari platform if: 1. The V4SA does not sell as well as expected. 2. That, or after the V4/5/etc has been done and dusted...

Re: MMX

@Stormy: I disagree.

The 68080 has AMMX which is very similar to the Intel version.

Also, its not beyond possibility that the Vampire team may implement the needed MMU/Traps/Exceptions/Bus Errors or whatever to allow plugging a V500 into an Atari ST...eventually.

Re: MMX

Eventually, it may be possible to use the Vampire/EmuTOS in an Atari.

I cant find the post now, but I believe Tuxie and Terriblefire were discussing what was missing. It wasnt much IIRC.

Definitely what Joska said.

Damn dude! It looks like those mice have trashed the MST...and maybe the SST board.

However, Im not sure the SST card will...

What *could* be a bit different is edge/floor detection and enemy sprite collision detection. I have tried to make this identical to the original, and I think I pretty much succeeded in that. But I'm sure fans of the original version will notice differences. Hey dont sweat it. You are not in a comp...

Re: New game: l'Abbaye des Morts for the Falcon

Ok then. Fair enough. Wasnt expecting it to be those reasons.

The Falcon (after about 2 years of inactivity) came out a few weeks back, in anticipation of this title.

However, after about a day of use, the PSU failed! :x

Looks like I will be on Hatari for this now for the time being!

I think the DML/Anima combo is really pushing the envolope here. This must be Atari 16/32 bits finest hour for game creation, surely?
