Re: A few fun text adventures

I like that format, reminds me of a series of books when I was younger (sorry, it's in french). It would give you a page number to go based on your choice with a bit of random here and there. Was full of awesome pictures here and there. Eh, combining your SPI ram graphics mode with the 80 cols mode ...

Re: The site is under attack

Ok guys, I think I fixed the problem for now. Looking at the detailed access logs, the site was indeed under attack from a shitload of leeches bot and crawlers mainly from China. I cannot understand why the same bots were recrawaling the whole site every 10 minutes or so. Anyhow, I banned them all u...

Re: The site is under attack

Space Spartans was amazing when I was a kid, and still does with all the controls it had. +1 for Space Spartans! I don't think you'd need another chip for the voice. The simplest would be to have a SD file with all the words sampled in it and just stream them Uzeamp style. I would be glad to help y...

Re: 80 column text mode at quite high resolution

Each row has to end with a null byte (memory is 81x25) to jump-table out of the sequence so I only got 127 characters usable. Ha, I arrived with the same solution with my last version with the attribute bit! :ugeek: But I will trash it and use Jubatian's, looks pretty good and the size of the tiles...

Re: The site is under attack

You can check the stats for the site. I don't have much more info available I think. I can't understand why the forums and possibly the wiki and other pages are hammered like that. Makes no sense, maybe some bots found a weakness in the PHP code and is exploiting it somehow. Maybe the crawlers tries...

Re: 80 column text mode at quite high resolution

If you fill up the whole character set, half with the "straight" characters (0 - 127), next half with the inverted variants (128 - 255), then essentially you will have that! Yeah Indeed, that's what I tried with mode9 but the roughly 110 tiles inverted set could not fit in flash so I resorted to ad...

Re: 80 column text mode at quite high resolution

This is really insane and clever. My head hurts trying to understand it. You can already do inverse if you start playing around with it: Set up a display list, then you can (should be able to unless I bugged it!) set any global Foreground / Background color Sorry I wasn't clear, I meant an attribute...

Re: The site is under attack

Of course not all those guests are bots. :) But a it has ramped up like crazy in the past month. We are talking like 7gigs a month for some user. Way more than real users would consume. I will restore it when I figure out what is going on and resolve the issue with IP range blocking or else. Btw, I ...

The site is under attack

We are under attack from web crawlers or something else. All those 600+ guests are certainly no real users, There's no new buzz about the uzebox on the net that can justify this. These A-holes are leeching 5Gbytes+ per days lately! :evil: I will try to block all bots as best as i can and if it doesn...

Re: A bit of time off, but awesome stuff going on here

Ha, here in Montreal Canada, it's still very affordable! And the IT world here is desperate for talents. But the catch is you have to speak french. :? :roll:
