1337 - Elite-like game for Oric Atmos

Recommended Posts

Wow! Nice work! - when can we expect a port to the 8-bit Atari? :-)

I don't think the author is an Atari fanatic so I doubt he will port it. However, there is always a chance he'll release the source code. You can follow development here. Please don't bug him about an Atari version or source code.

I really looks cool, but the wire frame animation seems a bit (too) slow.

The Oric has a 1MHz 6502 and a bit of a funky display so that's actually not bad. I do think he can speed it up more before he's done.

Understood. I wonder how many cycles he needs for a pixel.

 

Maybe I can help with my experience from my own Elite demo.

 

I tried to register to the forum linked to above to offer my help, but the process always crashes. Is that just me?

I see 1 problem. The C64 version draws circles with lines where this tries to draw a real circle.

I'll mention to the admin you had trouble registering.

That shouldn't be a big problem. There exist ultra-fast circle drawing algorithms. I am pretty sure he used them already.

Thanks, but I found a way to contact the admins myselft. Problem solved. :)
