Re: Defender

I think defender could be pretty well done in a video mode that was 2BPP and had 128 ram tiles and 128 rom tiles. That should be able to be done at 256/288 pixels wide. 4 colours would be less than the arcade original 16 colours. 256 pixels wide less that arcades 320. However there should be plenty ...

Re: RetroTINK upscaler for Uzebox & Others

That looks really good quality and I may buy one of them when I next get some money. For now I just have one of the crappy $8AUD Component to HDMI adapters from AliExpress. It isn't great quality but it certainly works. So that is a super cheap option to go to HDMI for uzebox if you don't need the q...

Re: Tempest is possible

I think the problem with the demon heads is that they are generated too often. They are meant to be scary, terrifying and very fatal. But you should not see them that often. There are 4 ways to kill them As they come up the web shoot/dodge/shoot. This is hard and don't bother trying unless you are i...

Re: Tempest is possible

Another round of bug fixes. I Think all the zooming bugs are fixed. Demon heads now have a proper behaviour. They now chase you. I tried making them roll towards you smoothly (like fuseballs do) but it seemed a bit friendly and comical like a giant beach ball. They instead jump/teleport from lane to...

Shame you can buy all but 3 of the components required from Digikey.
Digikey should have suitable replacements for everything.

Re: Missing and alternate components

The H11L1 which digikey does have in stock should be a replacement for the sharp optoisolator. Alternately - if you don't need MIDI input/output just leave it off the board. The electro capacitors are not critical and anything around the same value with a high enough voltage rating will do. No need ...

Re: US$ 5.00 - NES emulation on ESP32 - Why not UzeBox?

Not sure it has the horses to do a perfect emulation.

And as far as trying to expand or improve the uzebox that way - it does not interest me much. The fun is the challenge of the limits.

That said I love rossumur work.

Re: Flight of a Dragon

Sounds like a lot of stuffing around you had to go through. No I never completed game at all. I just can't play platformers very well. I was lucky if I ever made it out of the dungeon. I once made it to some castle that had barrels of gunpowder or something and died there. I've seen the map and I kn...

Re: Tempest is possible

I've run out of steam again so need to take a few days break. Here is a UZE file of the fixes so far.

It has one special fix/improvement I have not mentioned in the post above.

Have a play and tell me what you think of the new feel.
