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:

Re: 80 column text mode at quite high resolution

Was debugging my telnet client and fell on this 8-) uzeforums.jpg Looked at your demo and counting the chars on a line...seems to be more that 80?!? :shock: What I'm I missing? If you could fit an inverse video mode into it that would be truly be something. Mode 9 is 80 chars wide in principle, but ...

Re: Five clock per pixel RLE mode

Hopefully this works on your real hardware. It sure works fine...fast and smooth, it's very impressive!! :shock: Never though I would see big polygons like that on the Uzebox, kudos! But don't be such a tease, we need a game now! :P I'll look up and find the patch needed for Uzem to run in the emul...

Re: Five clock per pixel RLE mode

Well - there has been progress since this thread. I posted a moving polygon HEX file here http://uzebox.org/forums/viewtopic.php? ... 402#p30402 About a month after this threads last comment. Yeah saw it, but I can't run it in CUzebox, just hangs. I guess there was a patch? Anybody has a recent win...

Re: Unlimited RAM/ROM

Pretty awesome stuff, seriously tickles my geeky side! :geek: I want to run this, let us know when you have something ready to publish. Btw, regarding video modes, for 2K I have upgraded my 80x28 videomode 9. Now supports using the tile indexe's MSBit as an attribute to select between to background/...
