game screen progress

Posted by SpiceWare, in Draconian 14 May 2017 · 505 views

Game screen's been rewritten to update the audio sample on every scanline.  Squeezing it into the score display area was a bit tricky, ended up replacing the original loop logic with the new Fast Jump feature.
The radar's currently showing a test pattern to confirm it's displaying 8x16.

* we discovered an issue with Fast Jump that required an update to the Harmony/Melody driver as well as Stella's implementation of it.  As such, you'll need Stella 5.0.0-pre8 or newer, which isn't available yet.

Have you updated all the kernels to the new CDF/FastJmp method? Chris

Made some progress this morning before work, should be able to wrap up the new kernels tonight after which I'll start in on testing the player reposition kernels.


Also made a minor change to the demo to confirm the HMxx registers are being updated correctly before I start testing the reposition kernels.  Screenshot of the results has been added to the blog post.
