Staring Sound and Music but where's newcoleco?

Recommended Posts

He hasn't been around in a while...also goes by Daniel Bienvenu.

His website has no contact info and I believe him to be the authority on Coleco sound programing in assembly.

 

Is there anyone with any other contact info?

 

Any tips, code, samples....

 

TIA

Hi Mike,

 

Here is a link to Daniels devkit. It has samples for everything including playing music & sound fx

Thanks...I have the latest but all of that is for C.

He also programs a lot of his music in Assembly which I use.

I was hoping he had close friends that could send him a message that people are looking for his help.

Yeah, I don't know about getting in contact. However the sdcc when it compiles the code also leaves a .asm assembler line by line file of the code upon compile and the equivalent c code that was used to generate it. I don't do assembler but it seems like your could extract the info from there.

 

ex: excerpt from 10years music and picture sample

 

;main.c:9: void main(void)
; ---------------------------------
; Function main
; ---------------------------------
_main::
;main.c:11: set_snd_table(snd_table);
ld hl,#_snd_table
push hl
call _set_snd_table
pop af
;main.c:12: screen_mode_2_bitmap();
call _screen_mode_2_bitmap
;main.c:13: show_picture(ptc_cake);
ld hl,#_ptc_cake
push hl
call _show_picture
pop af
etc....
i attached the compressed folder with the full assembled rom and assembler files.

Thnx...

I see what I can get from it and it doesn't hurt to experiment.

Even in Smart Basic I didn't entirely understand it and whenever I made anything I used code sent to me by Coleco themselves.
Call their 800 number and they sent you stuff to help you out. Pokes and Peeks.

Sorry to vanish for months. Personal reasons that I will explain in another post.

 

I hope you managed to figure out how to do your codes.
