Unfinished (way unfinished)...

Posting my first attempt at this song, don't know if it will be fixed or final before Christmas. 


This uses the Pitfall II type of 3-channel music, with notes in tune.

DPC+ needs Stella 3.1 or newer for emulation,

Oops, Harmony or Harmony Encore 2600 cart for real hardware will not work as I did not merge it with the header..



Thanks to Supercat via SpiceWare for this assembly routine.

It has a nice vibrato effect, a little bit better than Stay Frosty 2 as this is just doing the tune and a simple sprite display and not an entire game engine logic. 


DPC+ music has to be done in assembly as no kernel has been made for batari Basic. 


I got the color changed, and tried to have the display flip (so it is more tree-like), but no luck with my newbie asm skills!

Joystick speeds it up, but default 0 is already quite fast.

Merry Christmas to all here that celebrate it, and Happy Holidays to everyone else!
