#4278833 DYNALYNX

Posted by sage on Today, 7:58 AM

Yep some info is not accurate, but there is a comlynx version somewhere right?

yes. but for some reason it is a bit buggy, seems the explosions are not killing. good for debugging, stupid for playing

#4276068 Flashcard - BT 1913 Bernd Thomas - where to find games for testing?

Posted by sage on Thu May 16, 2019 4:40 AM

Basically, you have to verify the file type is accurate with flashcard setup (LNX/LYX or O), the size is correct


Only problem. Some people decide to release .lnx files without header on the web. so, if you flash them with .lnx setting, it will fail. so, if you lnx file is exactly 128k or 256k or 512k and not 128k+64 bytes etc, you have to select lyx and not lnx.

#4247456 Splitting out Combo Game Carts

Posted by sage on Fri Mar 29, 2019 12:25 PM

Don't know if it's possible to split the two games, because it's probable that the two shares some functons (sound driver , gfx effect, input handling) to save cart memory.


What you could do is to make two copies of the rom and hack each one to make them load automatically on start only one of the two games. Than if you want to go further, you could clean from each rom cart the unused part and then hack the cart directory to remove the not needed sectors and shrink the rome to reduce it's size.


But I don't think it's worth the effort.

no problem.

see my battlezone patch which loads the easter egg game automatically.

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...
