    So I just replaced my original BLL loader and replaced it with the Epyx one, and switch back to BLL format for the data.

    I tweaked (well @Fadest did) the original loading function to take into account the 2048 alignment and the presence of a second CART.


    which second cart?

    and which alignment? there is no alignment.

    anyway, without knowing what your spr look like and how/where you load them it is hard to say anything.

  2. Let me share some game preview/demo which (for obvious reasons) did not make it into the Lynx 2020 Programming Compo. The game is fully playable with comlynx, but restricted in several places (again for obvious reasons).

    With the current situation, it was impossible to do any large-scale testing, thus I cannot guarantee that it works for more than 5 players.

    The available game settings are chosen a bit on the not-too-much entertaining side. Two modes are single shot games with too much items at the beginning, thus cleaning up should be very fast. They differ in the way the extras affect the players. The second two modes differ in the same way, but have a much lower drop rate and (close to) unlimited lifes, thus one can build up an inventory and play a longer time (well, I wont call it a beta testing mode, but anyway).


    The full version might become available later this year if the situation allows.


    The differences between the full version and the demo version

    • More background graphic sets
    • More playfields
    • More possibilities for configuring the game
      • game mode: win points, best of n games etc
      • start items and lifes
      • item drop rates
      • switching on/off for any extra, configurable if it affects all players or only you or all others
      • loading/saving config from/to eeprom
    • no slide show ;-)
    • bug fixes for anything found in the next weeks
    • ... some things I forgot ...
    • Packaging and cartridge 🙂


    Even so this should be completely clear, let me remind you that is is strictly forbidden so sell this ROM in any way (in electronic form or on cartridge).

    Our Card did use always 1024 byte blocks and bank-switching with AUDIN for 512K card or only 128 blocks for 128K cards.
    Since the level of AUDIN was not the same for Lynx I, Lynx II Mono and Lynx II Stereo, the boot loader had to be in both banks.


    I am not sure if any of the flash cards supper 1M games with AUDIN bank switching.

    yes, they do. at least the one i own

    Titan is just a graphics "look, what I can do" game with some fun ballistics. It was only 50% ready after the 4 days I had time to write code. I should have read the instructions earlier.
    Minimal is also just "work in progress"

    hehe with this competitors maybe i should have thrown in some 50% done game engine, too 😛
