#3938996 Tutorvision detection ROM

Posted by nanochess on Thu Jan 18, 2018 10:16 PM

I've corrected the problem counting the cycles for NTSC/PAL, and I'll look into the solution suggested by Joe for the start of IntyBASIC.

 

I would be pretty glad to make it compatible with Tutorvision 8)

Everything going smooth and feature settled after rejecting Rev's request to put a pony in each screen.

2048 has new themes, Oh Mummy! looks and plays best than ever, Meteors it's even better and has also some extra nifty features. :grin:

Apparently a fourth game could make it into ;)

Total respect for Bill, always so kind and patient. Unfortunate how some person is abusing of that.

Glad to see you back. :)

Sad these games are being cancelled, but you know your time better.


#3936050 Taking advantage of C++17 to build 6502 code

Posted by nanochess on Mon Jan 15, 2018 4:25 PM

When you write code for 6502 everyone knows no automatized generator of code can be so good as a human in special for 6502.

And when you're writing for 4K or 8K, simply any wasted byte is a pain.

Batari BASIC is good because the BASIC language translates more easily to 6502 and almost without requiring runtimes, here wasting a byte is compensated by the fact of easier coding.

But using C++17 is essentially overkill and only good for a "I did it, it's not so useful but I did it".

If you want to get some performance of it you'll end coding like in BASIC, inside the main function almost with only if and gotos.

nanochess,  I didn't know you were into the TI?


Just trying to have a pretext to learn to code in 9900 :grin:
 

I love your efforts on the Intellivision!  When you started IntyBasic, I was hoping to do something with it.
I haven't got very far with it.  I am still trying to learn how to do something good on the TI for 35+ years....


Thanks! and the newest versions make coding even easier. ;)
 

For me the Intellivision and TI are my first systems and I still love them.
Of course, I later had the Colecovision and then the C=64 which filled my teen years.  Some great games on that computer!
 
I still want to create something fun for the TI or Intellivision...  I just need to acquire a stronger skill set. LOL
 
Any idea when miner is going to be released?
 
Be well.


Miner 2049er for Intellivision is in beta testing already, just one detail reported to me and it should be available by end of year if everything goes well in the physical side of boxes, manuals and so.
