CENTRON 3D - Title Screen Shot

Recommended Posts

I am not a fan of having this kind of "secret" about the mode used.... We are in 2014 where fandal, tebe, xxl, etc release stuff and talk open about it... Or even release source code... (Reminds me Arsantica sources to publish).

Agreed, i can understand someone playing the cards close to their chest before release but Rybags is right and after release it probably won't take much more than ten minutes to reverse engineer the code. It's better to just document what's going on in a blog post when the game goes out or something, that way you're not just giving the community a game but offering up a cool technique for the coders to play with as well.

And another bonus with sharing the gfx mode or code would be to get the experiences of us to avoid some issues right at the beginning ;) not talking here down the ideas but could help improve... ;)

I'm trying to decide if '80s developer NDA mentality is cute or antagonistic. You'll make more money at McDonald's than you will trying to copy protect Atari games. Anyway, hope the game is good!

Doesn't matter... we work these things out 10 minutes after the release anyway.

Yeah... Chances that we'll see something we haven't seen til now are slim... Ultra slim ;)

 

I bet they are keeping a lid on it just because they want to provide us with a nice surprise, and show that they made real effort and produced something new.

 

@Bryan: I'm deciding 'Cute' ... For now ;)

Do you also ask for your Christmas and birthday presents to be given as soon as they are bought? And without the raping? Let's wait until Pete and his crew are ready to release it. The fun is not only in the getting, but also in the waiting until you get something.

 

Sincerely

You only forget to ask for no raping once.

I am willing to wait but am not ready to rape, it is too new to me and not in my nature. I hope that is OK with all other Atarians.

Hello guys

 

Oops, I usually check of any errors in what I write, this one slipped by me. That should have read "wrapping" of course, not "raping".

"For now.." x)

I only can say that if is blending colors is going to flicker "a lot"..

If Apac, I don't see the scanlines (but the "screenshots" look a little dark, so I suppose is one of these two)..

Color changes inside the scanline are good mostly for title screens, so .. what else is out there?

How do you know? x)

Borring time at work... Can't stop wasting time thinking about how its done :)

 

Based on this quote from Pete:

"ANTIC and GTIA will be working hard at VBL video updates and colour mixing. There is no comparison to the games you mentioned with Centron 3D. So the 6502 will be doing other calculations and not worrying about

video updates. This is what ATARI designed ANTIC for, to take the video pressure off the 6502 but you probably already know this."

 

That should mean dlist, dli and vbl colors and modes changes. Let see what type of crazy mix they came up with ;)

Nobody wondering so far why he posted a screenshot without the frame of the used emulator? Or is this usual today?

 

Better would be a short movie including the loading and then showing the screenshot.

I'd say raping is a pretty big surprise..

Hi Guys :)

 

@ProWizard: I'll upload a short vid of the screens we've completed on YouTube tomorrow

and will let you know.

 

Pete :)

I'm looking forward to it!

 

I just saw your other title screen picture and it looks great.

 

You will have other people potentially use your CMODE after they've backwards engineered it. With modern debuggers that probably won't take long.

 

You may find that other people find some quite inventive ways of using the mode, maybe not necessarily for 3D things. Perhaps it could be used for a 2D puzzle game of some kind?

Hello TMR

I guess we have the same kind of humor. :D
