A DOS computer today?

Posted by Serguei2, 25 February 2019 · 111 views

HP computers offer three OS installed to choose from:
- Windows
- Linux
- FreeDOS
If most people choose Windows or Linux, I start questioning why FreeDOS is also offert.
FreeDOS: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FreeDOS
I wonder why some manufacturers decide to support FreeDOS as well.
Today, most peop...

Tarzan Tarzan is maybe not a beat'em up or a brawler game but it's very close.
The goal of this game is to free monkeys from mad apes/hunters and yelling in the top of a temple.
You can't kill anybody here, you can only knock down them unless they fall in the traps on in water.

Like I said, you can knock down ennemies but they event...

Subroutines in C

Posted by Serguei2, in Programming Colecovision 19 February 2019 · 72 views

I learned something new in C recently:
Theses codes are for Colecovision.
This code is like if I type it in Basic, without numbers.
This one uses a subroutine.
Both codes give the same result except the last one use a subroutine.
When I saw codes from source games for the first time, I was confusing...

My brawler game ...    again Yesterday, I added "PRESS FIRE 1 TO PLAY" and changed 2018 for 2019.
I noted when I press fire 1 to start the game, in a fraction of a second, I noted something appeared on the screen.
I put delay when the second screen is about to appears.
Sprites from the intro somehow re-appear briefly before they disappear.
That's I'm worki...

ColecoVision sprite 16x16

Posted by Serguei2, in Programming Colecovision 01 February 2019 · 101 views

ColecoVision sprite 16x16 I noted in the Colecovision guide it is possible to make 16x16 sprites.
So I tried it and I get with a funny result.
My brawler game is too advance to change sprites to 16x16.
Also 16x16 sprites might take more resources than 8x8 but it's just guessing.
