  1. Hi everyone interested, while we are at the middle of creating our entry for the 30 years Lynx compo organized by atarigamer.com, I thought it might be nice to share some details on tools or concepts we use. I will happily answer questions but some replies may take a while during the compo We work on a rendition of Assembloids, a fast-paced action puzzler. The concept was originally developed by Photonstorm for the flash game 'Quartet' and we ported it to C64 and Atari2600. The original artist contributed to the C64 variant back then and we have the official ok to spread the love across multiple systems. The Atari Lynx surely was missing so far! We try our best to give it some different style and touch for each system and to make the best use of the given hardware. Not too long ago we formed some hobbyist homebrew game-dev group 'PriorArt' and you can find us here: http://priorartgames.eu For Assembloids Lynx, I (Martin) work on the code, Oliver 'v3to' Lindau does most of the main graphics and Kamil 'jammer' Wolnikowski is the man behind the sound effects and music. I get most fun out of developing for any platform when I have everything understood from scratch and am aware of every single byte written. This also means that all bugs are my own So everything is written in assembly language and I usually write my own tools. For this game the only external tool I use is 'sprpck' that basically does exactly what I need and had not time/motivation to write my own converter Thank you for it! But no other libraries, loaders, converters or routines by others were used. This may sound tedious but it is half-the-fun. Of course this approach heavily relies on information available somewhere and I thank in particular: Bjoern Spruck for detailed information and examples, Bastian Schick for much of the legacy documentation and pioneering work, Karri for sharing thoughts and enthusiasm, And LXdev for his 'Diary of an Atari Lynx developer' which was a great start! And also Bernd Thomas for his flashcard that I needed alot to test things on real hardware which still differs alot from emulation, Sascha 'Luchs' for hints and contacts and a couple of hardware-tests, i.e. for the true RGB image routine the Retrokompott podcast (with Oliver Lindau) who triggered my urge to look into the Lynx, Igor from atariage.com for constructing a 'center of knowledge and information' for the Atari Lynx + everyone involved in emulation-development which is the key for anything getting done today [sorry if I forgot something while writing this up, feel free to ping me or simply comment here] And, naturally, my own group mates for their patience during endless (still ongoing) test-iterations Preferring coding in assembler from scratch, I soon needed/wanted some own loading routine. The one I now use loads pretty fast and the whole loader fits into the smallest possible decode-unit of 50 bytes. There is an Atariage thread about the start of my routine. I also prefer to stay optimal and not 'waste' space (this is purely emotional these days as 128KB or 1MB hardly make no cost difference anymore). Anyway, Assembloids Lynx suits into a 128KB cartridge. This is already way too much text so I will take a break here and add details here and there Cheers, Martin 'enthusi' Wendt
