Time Pilot demo

Recommended Posts

You're so kind ... thanks a lot again ... 

I just compiled the source pgm in the .zip directory tms9900 and it works perfectly like tpilot1.obj in the same directory...

Now it's up me to understand the code (line by line :( ) that will be an adventure... 

Thanks you so much again for this very good example of game template ...

I never thought that the TI99 would be able to make similar games in a similar graphics mode ... I am from the 80s and my memory of the TI99 after hours and hours of typing programs I found myself with games with jerky movements and fluidity of a snail ... now 30 years later I want to work hard to understand what it meant to make a real video game on the TI99 ... it takes patience but I will succeed ....
Thanks from an old TI99 enthusiast ..

Any other suggestion, recommendation, book, listing , example or diagram that comes to your mind is absolutely welcome

Get in touch

Francesco

If you're looking for examples, the source code for several of my games is in github. Here is the code for Bouncy's obstacle course, for instance:

https://github.com/Rasmus-M/obstacle

I have attached the game in case you haven't seen it.

a Sort of TI99 source code bible... :) ... thank you so much

I assume everyone has looked over at the Colecovision version of Time Pilot.  Given it uses the same video chip as the TI, it shows what could be done.

Not trying to sound like an a** but my intention was to create a Time Pilot version that is more true to the arcade version and superior to the colecovision version. Think (hope) that showed in the demo a little bit. 

 

Always thought we can do better than the stock colecovision version (which is understandable considering the ROM size they used).

If I understand opcode correctly, he is/will be working on an arcade conversion for the colecovision with superb quality.

I love you guy but nothing comparable with the version of Retroclouds ... did you notice the difference ?!? .... one is colecoxyz and one is TI99 arcade like...

I agree, the Coleco version is nice, but you can do much more, with smooth multi layered scrolling for clouds and more details for sprites
