  1. Currently looking at your tutorial, is ConTEXT required? Would Programmer's NotePad work as well?

      ConTEXT is not currently being updated, that doesn't make it a bad choice, as it's still available.  But at the end of the day you can use quite a number of text editors, I currently use Sublime myself, but that does require a license. Programmer's NotePad has a lot of the required features (and probably more with all it's plugins).

  2. I see how you set that up but I still have to figure out some timing issues such as when opening my gate animation pauses everything else.  Slowing down the bat flapping causes pauses.

     

    Either way, I'll fix all those issues when I'm almost at game completion.

     

    At present I am adding the finer details, title screen, game select screen, audio...  Basically polishing and working on the Super Game level.

    At this point when I look at my comment section it seems that I am the only one that cares about my project so I am in no hurry and I am not under any contract.


    Originally I was contacted from the Coleco License holders about my hardware project.  I think they were just looking for a payout.
    Another back burner deal which is why I asked if you were for hire because I have no time to write the operating system.

    Of course that is another project for another day having to deal with real life.

     

    It would have been nice if you gave me pointers on my game but we all have priorities.

     

    Other than that, you are all caught up.

      Yeah I got contacted by the Coleco License Holders at some stage too, asking about pricing for me to develop something.  I basically asked them a question about proposed distribution size and they never answered me.

       

      May have been poking around due to Berzerk, but we have arranged an official license for that now, so I can proceed.

       

      Sorry I haven't had much time to look at things, family life is still hectic, and I still have some more to finish off on the NES Sydney Hunter game.  Once that is done I will be completely focused back on all things Coleco and MSX :)

  3. I've done purges before but it looks like I finally unloaded my Tandy Coco collection, all in one shot too

      :( not your Coco gear. I will say it has a particular nostalgic appeal, but does not appeal to all.

      My panel was called The Rise of Homebrew and about how the market for home brew titles for Retro systems in increasing. The Pax organisers have committed to continuing at Melbourne i.e. it is now one of the regular events and it will be even bigger next year.

      Cool, thanks for the heads up. Youtube went crazy by the looks of it (I suspect they have just published another update, as comments and inbox went unavailable). I cleaned up the repeated comments.
