Re: The site is under attack

Wow... That bandwidth figure. Seriously, are we keeping up infrastructure for human beings or this ridicule trying to find loopholes to drop a load of spam posts (e-mails, whatever) everywhere? If bandwidth is starting to become a problem I seriously don't know what we could be doing at all. Apart f...

Re: 80 column text mode at quite high resolution

I added documentation, hope it could help starting out! I set it up so navigating to the mode displays it in GitHub, so the repo link takes you there:

Re: 80 column text mode at quite high resolution

Did a bit of tweaking around. Now Mode 80 can actually fake Mode 9: mode80_screenshot_mode9.png To get there, as the repo is now, change the tileset in Mode80core.s, line 139, then in videoMode80.c, SetFontTilesIndex(0) (instead of 0x20 as in the Mode9 demo charset space is at position 0), as well a...

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: Well, I still have my old French textbooks, in general I like how the language sounds (especially French vocals, like this ), but it definite...

Re: 80 column text mode at quite high resolution

Wow, that's a cool means to view the forum there! :) 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. m80_dlist_tdef dlist[1]; dlist[0].vramrow = 0U; dlist[0].tile...

Re: 80 column text mode at quite high resolution

However I can't make it look very good on my LCD display that is 320 pixels across. That is simply not possible since 320 pixels is just not enough for this, no matter how you try it! Even with the most optimal mapping, one character would be 4 physical pixels, which makes it impossible to do 80 co...

80 column text mode at quite high resolution

So... mode80_screenshot.png Alec: Hope no problem! :D This was actually an older idea, but seeing how people would like to have a good 80 character wide mode, I made an attempt at it on this weekend. It looks pretty good even on my small NTSC composite display, I purposely designed it so the charact...

Needs a port of Tempest I say :)
Sure! It actually passed me whether I could emulate it. I somehow like the vector display, to use the CRT that way, and it would also be fun to try to mimic it in a compelling manner (I experimented with such graphics routines in the past).

Re: Five clock per pixel RLE mode

This is the post with the patch: http://uzebox.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2386&hilit=cuzebox+rle+patch&start=170#p27772 Yes, that's it. For a moment I thought a branch or fork existed having it, but apparently not. Why it is not added to the mainline is that it is a very specific hack to get th...

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

Thank you! Yes, it is SW development... Or better describe it as struggling to get quality stuff done despite the conditions. Whoever imagined this thing should spend an eternity in the afterlife in one. In the Customer Support Department, with the deadline perpetually yesterday. :evil: (It is not a...
