  1. Best to load the file into STOS as a .asc file (a plain ascii file). You do this by using as Gemdos hard drive and buildling from VSCode to that hard drive folder in Windows/Mac/Linux I have a new Tutorial that covers this and and more using VsCode to Build. No need to cut and paste. https://intotheverticalblank.com/2021/09/14/stos-tutorial-3-vscode-plug-in-development-pipeline-and-missinglink-hello-world/ -Jeff
  2. I'm a spaghetti western fan, and they were one of the few ways my dad and spent time together. Our favorite was "Once Upon A time In The West". I feel like that is the feeling I'd like to get, especially if I can get the pokey to mimic a Morricone style score.
  3. Needs another revision before an actual demo. Soon.
  4. That's really the core of it. It's using WSYNC to change BG colors on the fly (inspired by splitmodedmeo). More to do on the sunset. I plan to have the sun will start going down, causing the BG colors to change. the impending darkness will act as a timer if I decide to go in that direction.
  5. Yeah, that's pretty much the idea. And like you said, maybe mix a couple different game styles.
  6. It might end up being only "semi" action, or the action portion being just one of the elements. It's very very early.
  7. I've been trying to create a "Western" themed game for many many years now. This is short video of where it is going, but it's long off from being completed. Atari 7800 Homebrew Teaser: Half-Past Sundown A Western Tale - YouTube Gameplay, if you can imagine this, would be somewhat like a western "moon patrol" but with a story attached. The proposed box art is an unused painting my grandfather did in the 1950's (he was men's "adventure" magazine illustrator). The "character art" (albeit, not optimized in any way) is based on cowboys drawings my dad did for me in 2006 before he got dementia. The game is programmed by myself. So here is the video of "Half Past Sun Down: A Western Tale", a game literally three generations in the making. Atari 7800 Homebrew Teaser: Half-Past Sundown A Western Tale - YouTube 7800cart1.pdn
  8. Launching very soon...
