Re: The quest to a portable Uzebox - update!

I have never pad printed onto a 3D print or know if it works well. From experience with silk screening and pad printing I will say pad printing is more likely to work well. PLA plastic could be a problem and you may have to print in ABS or PETG which both obviously work well with pad printing. I got...

For the enclosure I will make two versions available. One with the embossed text and one without. I stlll need to try silkscreening for the text, would look so much better.
You probably want pad printing / tampo printing.

Re: Video mode experiments

Could be interesting indeed to collect some of these ideas! RLE mode that is 5 clock per pixel and has a demo already. Isn't the video mode itself mostly complete at this point, by the way? I see you are pushing towards vector graphics and 3D, the demos look pretty solid, but I could imagine those ...

Video mode experiments

Probably mostly a question aimed at Jubatian, but anyone else working on something or with ideas can chime in. I am wondering what video mode ideas are being worked on or thought about by people. From me there is the RLE mode that is 5 clock per pixel and has a demo already. 4 Bpp 9 clock per pixel ...

Re: MicroMages NES

I think I remember in the thread about Joyrider that JHoward said he used something like meta-meta tiles to make the map larger. As of yet I have not made a game totally in ASM for the Uzebox. The AVR is just so well suited to C that for non speed critical things C is better in most respects. T2K us...

Re: Demo of the RLE video mode

Does this use SPIRAM? No - I am not enthusiastic about the SPI RAM. It is too slow to be used for frantic fast moving stuff which is kinda my gig. Woah! This looks awesome! I can't wait to see the kind of games you come up with. Thanks. The plan is still SuperHexagon. This demo was just to show off...

Demo of the RLE video mode

The rotations are "canned" data. I did all the maths on the PC and just cut and pasted the lines into the Uzebox C code. This is not because the Uzebox does not have the horses to do the calculations, but because I am lazy and gave up on trying to debug the problems I was having doing it all on the ...

Re: /* Bot Spam and IP Bans */

I think someone may have missed a user called WarnerCorie that has posted random gibberish to a few posts to try sneak past as a real user.

Re: UCC2014: Final Results!

T2K was done (long) before Jubatians awesome work on the SDHC + Fat32 bootloader. So there may be 2 problems. First it will only work on 2G FAT16 cards. Second if needs a fast SD card or the screen is corrupted. If you get the message "No SD card file" it is probbaly the first. I have a new release ...
