  1. I received my copy last week, too and the shell seems to be like yours. For me it's not that big problem, as we all do this for hobby most. I will try to adjust the thing and everything is ok for me. The game is the aim here and it pays everything back
  2. The official release of my game was initiated by Adam for the KazKompo 2019 (http://atarionline.pl/v01/index.php?subaction=showfull&id=1578860180&archive=&start_from=0&ucat=1&ct=nowinki). There you can find the game within the complete archive. Now I added the game with manuals at pouet.net, too: https://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=84604 And of course it will be online in a few minutes at my own homepage (https://www.ppsberlin.de) And yes, at some day, there will be an updated version...
  3. Nice! Bass reminds a bit to ST - but the Yamaha is deeper there - the whole style is as in the demos or cractros back in the days on ST, but 1 true channel more than there.
  4. Maybe I can help one or two people with an original copy. Wolfgang sent me some exemplars.

    NYD 2020

    Ok, missed the timeline a bit... But here, we are: NYD2020.zip Pouet: https://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=84458 New Year's Disc 2020 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hello everyone! Welcome to this years edition of NYD! It was a hard year for me in 2019 - a big not expected thing happend to me. So it was not so easy to create something for the A8. But I didn't want to stop this tradition and even if I had no clue, what to code myselves I started the call for entries at November 8th 2019. Gunstar and eMKay where about the first who had contacted me and eMKay just had a nice tune ready, so I had an idea, what I could try to code and asked both to help. But due to some more problems here, time ran out to do a nice production. At the end I had to cancel this project, to have at least one thing ready for NYD 2020. Again: Sorry Gunstar and eMKay that I did not complete the thing and your work is not presented as we had planned. I really hope to come back to this project and make it to a presentable and nice thing. Ok, now back to this NYD... My little intro should run on NTSC or PAL, but should be watched in PAL, as the colours are not set for NTSC - sound runs well even at 60 Hz PAL machines this time. Tools used to do this are: Rasterconverter, mads, graph2font, ATARI Font Maker, Raster Music Tracker, WUDSN - Thanks to the authors of these tools. The music was ripped from a modfile ebbhead made in 1992. Other words from the people who had made the projects are added below the lineup. We hope you all got well into 2020 and will have fun watching, listening and yes, PLAYING!!! There is imho a very well done game there this time :) At least my daughter had some minutes of fun playing the ATARI, yet.

If you reach a "$" item you get an extra anti-mine charge. The field has upper and lower borders that kill you if reached. Left and right borders wrap around. The rate of mines appearing around you increases continuously. Goals: - reach the highest score possible by walking on empty positions or collecting charges "$" - avoid stepping on mines or the upper and lower borders - reach the next 100 points to get a full recharge of your anti-mine charges Score: - walk into an empty position: 1 point - walk into an anti-mine charge "$": 5 points Controls: - use I J K L keys to move - use SPACE bar to clear nearby area (if you have enough charges) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Philsan - NewTek demo ********************* - inspired by Amiga NewTek Demo Reel #1 (1987) - images ripped from Amiga, edited and converted with RastaConverter program by Ilmenit - slideshow code by PPS -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Philsan - Snowfall Atari ************************ - compiled Turbo-Basic XL - graphics 7 image edited and converted with Atari Graphics Studio program by Tebe - RMT player by Raster, adapted for TBXL by Marok - original Atari Basic snowfall code by Fred Key (1986) - Depeche Mode Little 15 tune by JaKub Husak (2010) - packed by Homesoft -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- milpool/TiRED - 2020 ******************** _____ _________/_ /-----.______ -------. _( /__/ ) ___)_____ )_____._ \___ ____/ _/ _- /__ _/ |/ \ _// : \_/ \___\ __\_____/_____:_______/mpl : : : : TiRED - 2020 - Atari 8Bit intro : :_ . .// TiRED sends a happy new year to : : the atari scene with this little . : intro. GFX/Music/Code by milpool! . : Requires 64kb. . . : . _[ trd2020.xex ]________________________: \_______________________________________/ -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Wrathchild - Doomfire ********************* This demo I initially worked on in April 2019 after converting the original Javascript into a C and Allegro prototype on Windows. The aim was to then port take that code onto the UNO Cart’s ARM processor to see it running on the A8 but that hasn’t been done yet. There were two flavours, a 2x2 pixel mode for 2 rows of Graphics 10 per square at 80 pixels wide or 4x4 pixels for 4 rows at 40 pixels wide. For the NYD 2020, I have converted the C into 6502 assembler and first tried to see if the 2x2 version would run ok on a stock machine. It was almost acceptable but I chose to move to the 4x4 mode instead and this works fine. Coding was done across 3 days from 29th-31st Dec but has taken about a day overall. NTSC/PAL is detected at startup and colors/colours are adjusted accordingly however the music will run a little faster on NTSC. Having listened through the Winter Olympiad 88 songs, initially I was thinking to use the Biathlon tune but preferred the Downhill one in the end. I hope, that everything is in and I did not forget something. I tested every entry and every disc with my 600XL with U1MB and ASAP's microSD2SIO Device. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    NYD 2020

    As you can see, some things have arrived yet... Even if I had to make a decision to cancel one of my projects - that makes me absolutely sad, esp. for the 2 people who have helped me, but for sure I will review it later and it will become a great thing! - at least one little thing is ready for the NYD by myselves - had some doubt about even that. Still time for something to do - not me this time... If you sent something tomorrow: This year I won't have a computer near me, so my usual relative short reaction time might suffer from that. I will contact everyone just before release time, if something won't run at the (PAL) ATARI.
  10. xBIOS is a great tool and it still grows up!
  11. If two player game counts... Schloss Schreckenstein (http://a8.fandal.cz/detail.php?files_id=4420) - superb 2 player plattformer Tigris (http://a8.fandal.cz/detail.php?files_id=3267) - great 2 player tetris clone Mig Alley Ace (http://a8.fandal.cz/detail.php?files_id=2348) - hours and hours fighting in the air And if you are ABBUC e. V. member... you can try my Another Pong 🙂

    NYD 2020

    Oh, I thought, this 'disc' is well known these days. As Lastic and Preppie told, NYD 2020 will be the next edition of the New Years Disc, which I asked people in 2006 for the first time, to send me something they created for our little A8. The discs have become a very nice start in the new year since then and people all over the world sent cool things, so that we all can start the new year watching, listening, playing, having fun with our old machines. Follow the link Preppie posted that links to my website to find all previous editions. You can search this forum for nyd or new years disc, too. You'll find all the other threads. Best thing is, you don't have to be a champ coder, just have fun creating something and share your work, to share your fun with us all.
  13. As usual, I'm waiting for something you want to share with the community to become part of the next chapter of NYD. If you have something ready, sent it to me, via pm or to the NYD email address (nyd**at##ppsberlin**dot##de). Entries needed to be sent till end of day, December 31st 2019. Release as usual around CET 2pm, 2020-01-01
