  1. 256k is enough to fit everything . Is there a way to use it with Batari Basic?
  2. Hello, I squeezed together a 3mins-song to ~220KB. Any chance to put that in an oversized (virtual ROM-file-)cartridge?^^ The decoder for that is small and would fit easily (a homemade ADPCM that already ran in QBasic back then^^).
  3. Nothing different. I already tried different ROM sizes and optimization modes.
  4. set romsize 2k set tv ntsc set optimization speed gosub ps10 player0x = 20 player0y = 20 ruck COLUP0 = $5E COLUBK = $5C drawscreen goto ruck ps10 player0: %00011000 %00111100 %00011000 end return This one is fine if I run it in Stella regulary. If I switch Stella to developer mode, the pink color turns green and the "signal is bad" (No idea how to call if an ancient TV set is slighly mistuned so the image start bouncing up and down). Stella also says "PAL" instead of "NTSC".
  5. That I use too many cycles can't be the case. It is happening too if I run an empty loop with just drawscreen in it.
  6. Hello, I downloaded batari basic and I made my first game with that. 4K-Rom. Now I have a few questions to that, where I didn't find answers in the www yet. 1. Stella emulator didn't run my game in developer mode until I did a little tweak. Solution? My game didn't run properly when I switched the stella emulator to developer mode. The game, written in NTSC-mode, gave "Snow" and was wrongly run in PAL. It especially happened if I turn on the input pin randomizer functions in developer mode. By trial and error I found out that setting pfrowheight was the cause. I didn't manage to get it work first. But then I found out, that in one of the assembler include files a "#" seems to be missed. I added that and since that the game runs fine. I found out that solution because the else-path of the affected if-branch had an "#" for that line. I thing, this hacky way isn't a real solution. How to proper fix this issue without hacking an include files?^^ 2. Define score characters for the values A-F possible? I modified score_graphics.asm to do that. I added one blank character for "A", because 6 digits with leading zeros was not the best choice for a game mode selector in the beginning. This increased scoretable by 8 byte. Can I do it that way? Beside the score "font", there are org and rorg statements for each cartridge type. Do I need to shift the value of these by 8 byte for that? Their addresses look like the end of a cartridge so I have to shift it back by 8 byte to prevent the compiler exceeding the rom limits. Or not?
