Merry Christmas - demo released

Recommended Posts

Things to do:
* Christmas music: The Christmas Song.
* Christmas tree: Space ship with hostile horde of creatures all lined up in a restless formation.
* Text messages, typeface and sliding effect.
* Snow with a somewhat sparkling effect.

Design phase. I guess that's it. Let's do it ...

Old technology is the whole point here, isn't it? 😄

Absolutely, but Adobe Flash was said to be this big security issue ... :|

I should make a new font browser.

How do you get Flash to run in Chrome? 

Well, here at my end, it displays an icon in the upper right corner. Looks like a puzzle piece with a little red box. It says Flash is blocked. If you click it, you might be able to enable Flash, but I think the option to run from Chrome is running out of time. There are thousands of iconic games written with the Flash technology, and I'm not exactly sure how, - but places like Newgrounds will try and preserve games, technology etc.

Like sometimes99er said, click the icon and a box will appear...

Click on "MANAGE", you'll see a 'slider control'...

After you move it to the right, it'll turn blue and your settings will be good until you exit Chrome.

Now just refresh the page, and enable it on the website

OK that worked. Thanks! However, it looks like Flash will not be supported in Chrome past December 2020. Are there such limitations under linux?

I'm emulation only. If someone would be so kind and post a video of the demo running on real hardware, namely an unmodified TI-99/4A, no expansions and CRT-screen. I would like to see if it's working without any unwanted bugs, glitches etc. If you're experiencing problems with any other hardware setup, please let me know. A video showing the problem will be helpful.

It works perfectly fine on my unmodified TI-99/4a (PAL) without expansions. The only hardware I used was FG99.

Excellent. Thanks. Nice to know that it actually works for the platform I'm aiming at. :thumbsup:

Flash plugin on Linux:

 

Try one of the FOSS alternatives. There's a huge pile of them. (like gnash and lightspark.)

 

Unless chrome changes their plugin API, they should still work.
