yes. good idea. had the same thing in mind when I saw all these wonderful G2F pictures. It would make a great slideshow when e.g. using it with SDX batch files and a SIDE and alike.

#3867334 What Atari games have the most satisfying ending to them?

Posted by twh/f2 on Sat Oct 14, 2017 5:18 AM

I always liked the ending of the game "Schreckenstein" by Peter Finzel. 

The game has a very balanced difficulty and with fair amount of training it can be very satisfying to go through the challenging final level. After that one can see the congratulations screen.

In eternal  memory of Raster I would call it RasterDrive.


Rest in peace friend!

That's a very good question. I guess Mr. Dell himself could comment on this. I think that eclipse+wudsn currently doesn't compare to VSCode (function wise) at all.

But Eclipse is just the framework for WUDSN. I guess WUDSN could also rely on another framework like VSCode. As far as I know VS Code is completely based on JS/NodeJS. So bringing WUDSN functionaltiy to VSCode would mean a reprogramming from scratch.


Eclipse has much Java-specific IDE overhead, which a MADS programmer wouldn't need. It would be nice to have a slim & easy-to-setup editor for MADS and/or CC65 incl. debugging with Alitrra.. .

 --- ok dreaming :) Until then I can live with WUDSN which is a great option of course.



#3686080 help me bug fix 32bit multiplication

@home now and yep. it really solves the problem!!!


it's a perfectly logical bug fix.. afterwards. I expected something more fundamental to be the problem :-)

#3686014 help me bug fix 32bit multiplication

Posted by twh/f2 on Thu Feb 2, 2017 9:38 AM

Hi !


I have here a 32bit multiplication routine which is simply adapted from this code from the Codebase64.




The following code was adapted by FJC. 

Num1	.ds 4
Num2	.ds 4
Num3	.ds 8

​.proc MulLong ; 32 bit multiplication: Num1 by Num2, result in Num3
	lda #0
	sta Num3+4
	sta Num3+5
	sta Num3+6
	sta Num3+7
	ldx #32 ; loop for each bit
	lsr Num1+3 ; divide multiplier by 2
	lsr Num1+2
	lsr Num1+1
	ror Num1
	bcc rotate
	lda Num3+4 ; get upper half of product and add multiplicand
	adc Num2
	sta Num3+4
	lda Num3+5
	adc Num2+1
	sta Num3+5
	lda Num3+6
	adc Num2+2
	sta Num3+6
	lda Num3+7
	adc Num2+3
	ror ; rotate partial product 
	sta Num3+7
	ror Num3+6
	ror Num3+5
	ror Num3+4
	ror Num3+3
	ror Num3+2
	ror Num3+1
	ror Num3
	bne multloop
	lda Num3
	ldx Num3+1

But I'm afraid it has a bug which I can't really fix. The following shows the dilemma:  $4 * $16b62 = $5ad88
	mda #$16b62 Num1
	mda #$4 Num2
	jsr MulLong
	mda Num3 Temp	; save result

	jmp *

It's producing: "$1AD88" rather than "$5AD88".


However this one works:  $16b62 * $4  = $5ad88

	mda #$4 Num1
	mda #$16b62 Num2
	jsr MulLong
	mda Num3 Temp	; save result

FJC: It seems that some upper bits of multiplier/multiplicand aren't handled properly (so result is different depending on which has set or cleared upper bits).


Any ideas?! Any help is appreciated!!

Can't believe that I tried out this game after such long time after official release.

And it's simply outstanding!! Awesome game. Just a brilliant example of idea and execution over high resolution and modern apps.

Thanks Christian!!!

#3536358 New to Atari 8-bit. Can anyone recommend me the must have games

Posted by twh/f2 on Mon Jun 20, 2016 10:54 PM

Just picked up a very nice condition 65xe and 130xe with Donkey Kong and Frogger. 


Im new to the 8bit computer line so not sure what some of the must have games are. I tried looking on Youtube for some complication videos but most were either a few games or didn't even have the name of the games listed. 


Also are there any SD flashcards for the 8bits? I saw the Atarimax Multicart and read it can hold about 40 games 


What you need is a Sdrive or Sio2SD solution. It emulates an Atari floppy drive almost 99% compatibility.

Here is my list of favourite games which I have put on my SD card in a dedicated directory "topgames" :-)

#3507794 Atari & Arcade toys for kids?

Posted by twh/f2 on Tue May 10, 2016 1:13 PM

Lucky me -- I'm Dad of a "future gamer" .. Since my son was born I like the idea to have him play and grow up with plush toys and symbols of classic Atari / Arcade / 80s toys and stuff.


For instance I like plush toys like the Nintendo Mario, Q*bert, Pacman, Slimer (Ghostbuster) and so on.


What toys / atari 8bit-related stuff (toys, clothes, wallpapers) do you have for your kids?
