Re: Gameloader / Bootloader problem

Excellent! Thanks a lot Chaps - it's working for me again now.
I never noticed that message BOOT: MENU/GAME at the bottom of the screen when running the Bootloader before..

Gameloader / Bootloader problem

For some reason when I load a game using the Bootloader (0.4.2 or 0.4.4) the Bootloader program never comes back - it's as if the game (like Arkanoid) has overwritten it. The Bootloader used to work so I'm confused as to what's happening ..... I set the fuses Program the boot loader Set the lock bit...

Re: Uzebox Code Challenge 2013 Opens!

That's brillant!

You'll have to post an .uze file for me to test it on real hardware.

If you want to clip the lines here's a good algorithm (although it's a lot slower than not clipping)

Re: Wireless SNES controllers

Well I got them - and they are really good ! They work on my SNES fine but they don't work on the UZE. It sort of almost works - it seems to think the B button is start and ignores all the others so some sort of info is getting across .... On well - no time to debug now - back to finishing my game.....

Re: Converting Decimal to Ascii

Thanks for the advice. Using a dirty flag to update the scores is a great idea - my problem is I'm always running out of ram (especially before the game is finished) so I didn't want to use one more byte yet! I use BCD on the 6502 all the time because it is so fast - I didn't realize the Uzebox has ...

Converting Decimal to Ascii

Hi, I was recently working on a game and found it framing out a lot - especially due to converting binary numbers into decimal so I could print them on the screen. Given two scores, one hiscore, the level and lives that was five numbers every frame! Anyway I used the wdt_reset() call to do some timi...
