They are many - Abbuc SWC 2020 Entry

Recommended Posts

@Irgendwer

I have't updated the results for CC65 for a long time because due to my special interests and lack of knowledge of C, I decided to programming in Millfork and CC65 is not on my radar anymore.

 

Maybe @tebe will thwart my plans and I return to Mad Pascal? Who knows ;)

 

Anyway... MP seems (from my point of view) to be the best choice for A8 at the moment due to plenty of libraries, examples, speed and last but not least the author who knows the platform inside out.

 

@popmilo sorry for off topic.

I have in general problems with generalizations. ;)

 

For me MP it isn't the best choice:

  • if I like to try something out quick and esp. on a native machine, there is no alternative to (Turbo-)BASIC
  • if I have the need for speedy code, I have to choose ASM anyway
  • if I have to port an algorithm which is implemented in C (which is far more common) I can save the time for adaptations
  • even I started with PASCAL before getting used to C back then, I never got warm with the syntax, but that's just personal taste (computers are made to print, not write something... ;) )

It's good to have the choice and if this stimulates coders to produce something it's even better. But 3% speed gain won't let me exchange my "{ }" into BEGIN and ENDs...

Unless you have an Action! cartridge around ;)

 

As for the rest, we can differ in opinion and live in peace :D

And if you rely on integer only ;)

Coderz please consider building much more complex worlds and game mechanics.

Black raven is exactly what I was thinking about when I said rts is possible on 8bit :)

Now just to find time to code that :)
