Thanks, I like them both. But speaking of WIP projects, let me say that D2K really will leave us breathless... :)
And, there are also 2 more impressive WIP of which at the moment I can not say anything... :)

 

I'm thinking of switching from D2K to Donkey Kong Remix.  I'm just finding D2K to be too difficult to play and not very fun.  Only problem is I'm having trouble getting in touch with the programmer to ask for his approval. 

 

Your graphics will of course still be used and very much appreciated.

I really think you're right and I love the idea a lot. :)

Now you're just being silly. 🙄 It's the name of the new MacOS release.

I thought it was Catalina?  ;-)

I was never a big fan of DK2...   Now Popeye, I played the heck out of that game, loved it!

Yessss!

I should also add that Synthpopalooza has offered to update the sounds. :)  I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do with it.

would it be possible to put BOTH games into one amazing cartridge? “D2K Remix” ????? I’d lose my mind if that happened!

That would be doing too full games and take twice as long.  I have other games I want to work on.  But thanks for the suggestion.

The idea is ... on the recent POKEY version, the ramp music is an octave too high, and there is a technical reason:  $Ax on POKEY in 8 bit mode can not reach the low A#2 needed to play this note.  It only goes to B3, so the original Atari XL programmer transposed it up an octave. 

 

My solution is to pitch everything up one semitone to B2.  It will sound better :)

Is it possible, to create a game, that is "too full"? :P

Alternatively...

 

We can use the YM2151 to simulate the triangle waves and scratchy timbres of the arcade Donkey Kong.  It's going to take experimentation,  but I believe that by using algorithms 7 and 8, the desired sounds can be done.

I sure am glad I was able to fix my grammar mistake in another thread!  Though it would be fun just to start a 'non-sober' thread, where the requirement is to be drunk to post in, just to see where it goes!

Has it been stated when the XM will be available to the people that didn't pre-order?  Quite probable I missed it when partaking of Scotch or something.

More orders taken when you see all 250 shipped. Stay tuned. This has been said about 37 times in the last 9-12 XM threads over the decade but in case you missed it here it goes the 38th time just for you.

I don't remember there being 250 pre orders taken. I thought it was 100 or 150 but I could be completely wrong.

But he's sure this is the 38th time it was mentioned.  Also, what's a Qwhiskey?  When you drink a whole bottle too quick and spew a fountain of it?

RevEng:  Would you be so kind as to convert the DX-100 factory patches here, to .OPM?  Thanks.  I wanna try the famous Solid Bass patch. :)

I actually had those converted to OPM already, but I went ahead and created a script to split out the 48-instrument files into 8-instrument files.

I've started a meagre OPM collection at 7800.8bitdev.org and put them there... more to come when I get a chance.

Let me know if I'm good to stick your patches there too. (credited, of course)
