Cafeman, that is very very cool.Great work . I have both of your games Koffi and adventure 2. Is Adventure 2 going to be complete in the box. Any news on Airworld. I would love to have a copy of that for the 5200.

Any progress?


I thought I'd get done over summer, but that didn't happen. Various summer activities kept me away from doing too much, but now that the swimming pool is closed for the season and I've burned most of my vacation time, I have time to finish up AdvII XE. You should be seeing more frequent updates by me and don't be afraid to prompt me now & then. When I see interest in the project, it reminds me and motivates me to work on it!

The last thing I was working on (in August) was switching the entire sound routine and sound/music data over to a free 8K bank (now that I have a full 64K to work with on the XE), and trying out some new tunes. I never really mastered doing good sounds using Pokey so a lot of the time was playing around and experimenting with FX like decay and vibrato FX.

Unfortunately, my PC got a bad virus/rootkit infection a week ago, and I just got that resolved yesterday, haven't even hooked up the PC yet. If you don't hear back from me in a week, prompt me again.

consider this INTEREST EXPRESSED.

...although I wouldn't try to rush you, and I'll be grateful for whatever/whenever! Thanks!

Latest update: something fried in my PC (after spending $130 on getting viruses cleared off it, argh!). I'll know today or tomorrow if its worth fixing or if I'll need to buy a different PC. It might just be the power supply. So no progress on Adventure II XE right now.

Once I get my PC troubles resolved, I will finish up new sounds & music and then see if its worth implementing some of my other ideas from long ago, or if I should just ship it as-is. I'll post a demo as soon as I get the new sound routine working - I will set a goal for Oct 1 (HAW HAW, okay pretty soon I promise) to post the demo here. FYI!

Interest check :) - I never opened my 5200 AdvII to keep CIB since I was planning on getting the XE version to play - been a long wait :)

Finally got my homebrewin' PC fixed and back in working order! A power surge fried the power supply, so I just needed a new power supply. Tried to 'get back into it' but its amazing how quickly I forget ASM rules. I didn't work on the game in September at all, unfortunately, until a day ago.

Don't plug your PC into unprotected outlets!

I feel for ya on the PC hardware issues. My "Dev" PC bombed out on my last month took me about two weeks to recover all the needed data off the drive. It was another three weeks before I even got around to "rebuilding" it. Which took about a day. And that was just restoring, installing the devkit/visual studio, and running the ten million microsoft insecutiry updates and dis-service packs! :lol:

Cafeman, your "Adventure 2" was the very reason I bought a Atari 5200 system again. But having it on a Atari 8bit computer and playing it with a 2600 joystick makes me want to get it again. I hope the game is coming along well.
