if someone is interested in a limited series of GW, today is the last day 🙂

Anything new about the physical release, does it happen?

can't edit posts?

 

I noticed that I didn't actually write essential stuff: 35 levels (7 planets), 9 music themes - including SID (POKEY MAX users)

Another musician for AY / YM joined the band - after inserting the SONari card you will be able to choose the music for YM2149 / AY-3-8910

A lot of new content is coming to the game. The team has been joined by:

POKEY Music: @Poison
GFX: @TIX

sample tiles in the attachment ... 🙂

Bravo gentlemen.

The new graphics are certainly an improvement IMO, the graphics that the released version has make it oftentimes very difficult to distinguish foreground tiles (i.e. active) from background ones. Well done to @TIX and also to @xxl for persisting in improving this nice game :).

no. Color schemes are different for each planet (7 planets) and TIX is responsible for that.

The graphics by TIX were really a benefit. 

But I wonder about the sound. 

The AY/YM board could sound like real music, but people prefer that low sounding.  

It's okay, but...

Why has POKEY always to sound like a crimped scrotum?

Why no low sounding tune for Pokey?

after all, you haven't heard new music on POKEY in the game yet ... the sounds you hear will shock you, and in an instant they will take you to the happiest moments you have experienced. fat bass, solos, almost mystical tastes ... as if baby Jesus would touch your ears with his bare feet.

Wow - that is some amazing sound! Would be cool to support SONari in emulation. Is documentation in English available? Mostly how it is mapped...

in short, the cartridge has two AY / YM chips (both are stereo)
left:
d560 - register selection
d561 - write to the register
right:
d562 - register selection
d563 - write to the register

This is a lot like DragonFly for the 7800!

 

That info should do it for now. We may ask for a demo app later on ;-)

 

Thanks!

the demonstration with the player (and the source code) is ready and just waiting for the editor's publication (yes, there is a music editor with SONari support) ... it was supposed to be yesterday but there is a delay.

 

a big surprise is coming 🙂

I can't imagine any bigger surprise than Gravity Worms working on U1MB/Incognito-equipped Atari 😉

I'm fascinated with how much focus you guys put on the sound tracks for things. I mostly find them annoying, especially if they play constantly throughout the game. That's just me, though.

The annoying part turns in, if a tune is too short or always the same sound style.
