#4239673 TailChao's HandyMusic on cc65

Mixing Chipper and HandyMusic is not a good idea.

As chipper exports HandyMusic script as well, thats not a problem ;-)

#4223409 List of stereo games

Thanks for clearing up Lexis...


For extra credit, if you could survey your games as to how many players can play "locally" (on 1 device, for example there could be a chess game that supports 2 players where you pass the device back and forth, or similar) as well as via ComLynx (2-N devices), I'm tracking that too.

the (hidden) bonus game in lynx reloaded features 4 players on one unit.

Try it out, will be very interested to see the results. I'll be working on improving the emulator section next year because right now the resolution is not correct. I want to add a 1x and 2x Lynx resolution versions. Shouldn't be too hard, just adding some toggles and new graphics for the console surround.

Yepp and I am improving the emulator itself.

I would find a 1MB Version much less impressive. 512 KB seems like the logical limit :-) very well done, sage!

Yeah, but it looks som much nicer :-)


But you are right. Its not that impressive anymore.

Anyway, it seems full reolution need much clever ROI finding algo. A short test revealed that it will exceed 1MB with current method.MAybe if I go back to b/w instead of grayscale.

The bullet hell shooter was only the "inspriration" for the remixed music. But there are some more nice platforms:

And can those be used to minimize the edge jitter?

 no. :-)


What is possible is to split in two triangles /|  and |\ . then one can get rid of it. but at what price.

I never imagined that someone is able to use it...

PS: It runs fine with retroarch on my android phone.

#4098431 Lynx loader from scratch

Posted by sage on Fri Aug 24, 2018 11:53 AM

actually it depends on how the multiplication is written. if it cares about if bits are set or not.


anyway: already with the microloader + unpacker for the first game binary you are so fast, that the "blob" from turning on is already disturbing the music ;-)
