Re: Anyone up for a collaboration to do something amazeballs?

If I took 2.8K of RAM for doing a video mode, do you think you could do the game state in what was left out the 4K total? Maybe not a full battle system with many characters. I do think the SPI ram sequential mode lends itself well to gameplay structs though. Read what is needed into a temp buffer,...

Re: Anyone up for a collaboration to do something amazeballs?

I'd always thought this one was beyond the realm of practical, and I still do. The tops of the columns can overlap any sort of other column, not to mention the characters. I actually think a simple first person shooter is more possible than this. Any thoughts?

Re: The P8X Game System

I think all P8X games can basically be done with Mode 3 at this point. Abbate des Morts in particular with just a few ram saving tricks on level data(state of items in all rooms..like Toorums Quest). That game looks awesome and I do hope someone does something isometric someday on Uzebox. I would im...

Re: The P8X Game System

Still a cool part of this open source retro console era. The l'Abbeye des Morts game is actually pretty good, and I am working on porting it to Uzebox.

Re: Hardware didn't hold the line !

I deleted all the other posts which were basically the same as this, because they were inserted into random threads which does not help you or anyone. Let us know the specifics of your problem so we can help get you going, and perhaps you can help us with better documentation.

Re: Hardware didn't hold the line !

Eh, you might have some point on the documentation, but we can only guess how to help at this point. Based on your other similar posts, it sounds like you are having problems flashing the ATmega644 is that correct? Are you on Linux or Windows? You will need an ISP like the AVR MKII ISP or similar. F...

Re: About game sizes

So, basically the uzebox can be used only 10000 times until it won't let you load games? Well, I think 10,000 is the *minimum* before the flash could start going bad. Also, you can play the same game as much as you want without rewriting; it does not wear out just reading the same data over and ove...

Re: New Game: Circuit Puzzle

Damn, this is impressive Matt! Fun, good presentation, style, and attention to detail; great stuff 8-) Also I do like that cursor movement quite a lot, and it feels like you are moving real pieces with the PCM. Eh...trying to think of a suggestion on this polished title, but I can't think of any imp...

Re: C64 SID emulation

I believe for the right scenario where one was willing to sacrifice something in graphics, you could update the sound more frequently(higher sample rate like SNES) and use more memory for advanced things. I guess the purpose of emulating the SID is more to use all the music already created for it, a...

Re: Tempest is possible

@CunningFellow - you mention extra songs under the probably can't do section. Probably impossible, but what if data in the streaming music format were used directly after frame data? It requires a relatively small buffer(ram I sure you don't have), and cycles to seek(which again you must be tight on...
