Yes it's fantastic, one of the best programs ever written. I used to load up that game just to listen to the tunes.

They’ve been unfairly targetting Modern Vintage Gamer’s channel and taking down his Nintendo switch homebrew videos. These are manual flags by the way, so someone at Nintendo obviously doesn’t like what he is doing.

Doesn't surprise me. There are too many places to get it and its already on archive.org.




#4263222 What about the Commodore community?

Posted by shoestring on Tue Apr 23, 2019 1:28 AM

Heard that argument a lot way back in school from students who owned Apple IIs. Since when were they ever using their computers to do anything seriously or business related ? They were playing video games just like we were albeit on a different platform. But that didn’t stop them from making derogatory comments like “you only own a Commodore “ or “Games computer”. It was a coping mechanism because they knew we had access to the best quality games on the market at the time.

Wouldn’t be fast enough using traditional methods.

In a nutshell, VSP allows you do fast scrolling without having to copy data, this frees up the cpu to do other things.

Unfortunately microsecond timing is required, so pcb layout and temperature can affect the reliability of the technique. Thankfully my breadbin appears to be immune to it. The reloaded board has a workaround to prevent VSP related crashes.

Yes it’s a great port and Jeff Minter approves :). I’ve grown to really like it despite some of my recent nitpicking. Still hard to believe that there isn’t a NES console hiding somewhere in my c64.

#4260737 Super Mario Bros for the c64

I saw this . . . kinda meh from me.  I've already played this game re-released on every Nintendo system ever.  I can't really get too excited about a C64 version.  I wish they had done something new with it.

 

Graphics are slightly different but the sound is spot on and game play is close to the original.

 

I haven't had enough time to play it but I'll be spending a few hours on it tonight to see what the fuss is all about :)
