  1. Got my club package today (yes all the way here down at the bottom of our globe), love the two games, can't wait to give them a play!
  2. If you are having problems installing the latest version of my Sprite and Tile Editor, make sure you uninstall any old versions first and then do a fresh install. I switched from a 'Click Once' installation to a proper (offline) installation package. It is also fully signed, but of course the rules are now changed and Windows 10 still puts up a warning. I will have to replace the certificate with one with a higher level of encryption (and of course more cost).
  3. I was just copying the arcade screens. If Sunsoft are the current license holder, I will need to change it.
  4. Thank you Amy, I will add Dan2 and perhaps ZX7 to the output formats supported by my Sprite and Tile Editor.
  5. Just a reminder to everyone, Cavern Fighter is available to order on the Collectorvision website: http://collectorvision.com/games/cavernfighter.php Once Toby has had some sleep from assembling and shipping 800 Phoenix's I am sure he will be good to get a batch going of Cavern Fighter.
  6. And while I am sort of stuck in a recliner, I did some more i.e. other two screens from the arcade. None of these layouts/designs are final, but think it's not looking too bad so far. I have added some sprites (as the monkey faces on screen four needed them), they are just hacked in and stationary so there is a bit of flicker evident at the moment. I need to work on all the character animations, especially momma kangaroo. Heaps of space left, 11k no compression used as yet. CoolCV - Kangaroo.ROM 2021-04-10 17-42-41.mp4 Kangaroo.ROM
  7. Been a bit unwell for a while (again), but felt I could use the computer tonight and quickly made a rom shell, with the graphics I showed above. No sprites in this one yet, but good to see the screens running. I need to do the other level. Sample Rom attached for any who are interested. 9k so far, but haven't turned any compression on. Kangaroo - Colecovision - Graphics Preview.mp4 Kangaroo.ROM
  8. And also tonight there is a rather quickly pushed out 'Quality Update' for Windows 10 Version 20H2 2021-03 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 20H2 for x64-based Systems (KB5001567)
  9. The application uses screen size information stored in the .config file. Even if you uninstall this might be left behind. Try uninstalling and checking that the directory is completely gone and then re-install. I'll do some checks on the latest build of Windows 10, as I just installed it yesterday as well.
  10. My tool will work on Windows 7 as long as you install .Net 4.7.2 or greater.
  11. Yep sorry, been a fair slog getting past a few technical limitations, but it's definitely getting close now
  12. It was the intention, shipping might be taking some time due to the size of the book though. I only received my copies to sign a couple of weeks ago. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. It is what is called a "Print Replica", due to the listings mainly. Selecting that must limit it to certain types of Kindles (who knew there were so many models!!). You could still read the book using the Kindle App if that helps.
  14. Let me know how you go, just because no one else has had the same problem doesn't mean there might be a wider problem. You would expect Amazon to support all of their own book readers though.
  15. Yep that is correct, I need to clean-up the links in the older articles on my website, but my admin sections is currently not working. Haven't had time to fix it with all the other stuff I have going on. Make sure the old version is uninstalled as well, otherwise it can cause the new version not to install a short cut icon on the desktop and you will still be trying to run the old version. And I am in Australia so my time zone means I am asleep when most of you guys are awake.
