In Topic: AtariAge welcomes Philip Price, creator/coder of 'Alternate reality'

It was mentioned earlier that Elite did a Spectrum version of AR ... does anyone have details of that, as I've never seen any details about this.


Although I wasn't an Atari user - I remember seeing this great game playing on an 800XL (I think it was) and being completely and utterly impressed!

Even if they used the RPi, they would still legally have to be an Adopter and pay the fee since the final product has HDMI output on it.


Originally the plan, I believe, was to use the Pi mainly purely for that purpose. But it now outputs to HDMI from the FPGA itself.

Fair point. Hope a solution is possible as HDMI or equivalent would be good.

Is it possible to provide the output as Scart, but using a smaller connection? Scart seems to have a lot of conversion options available to other outputs - but is also still supported (although sadly to a lessening degree) .. mostly europewide I think?

Wonder how the Spectrum Next gets around this issue? Unless they've paid for the license of course. Originally I heard they were using the HDMI output of the RasPi Zero so in theory using the existing license. But it's FPGA generated HDMI now.
