Re: Latest version of BeebEm

Who implemented the ARM7 copro? I'm adding the same to MAME and have interrupt issues that I may need some help with. This was Kieran Mockford, and @pstnotpd integrated it with the latest BeebEm code. There's some info linked from the GitHub pull request https://github.com/stardot/beebem-windows/pu...

Re: VIDEONULA questions

there are some games how use flashing to have 16 colors ? I am curious to see if it is visible ? The only game I'm aware of that uses very fast flashing to create the impression of a new colour is Orcrest . It's a magazine game but the graphics are pretty good. Most games either don't use the flash...

Re: High Score Challenge S14 - R02 - Felix in the Factory

Not sure why, maybe because of the strange choice of keyboard controls. You can choose a different key set, for instance to the standard x,y :,? keysets if you want Chrisn. That's a really helpful feature. I don't think the original release had that option, as far as I remember... New high score......

Is this related to Mac Beebem?
Do you mean the debugger feature, or BeebEm more generally? There's another thread discussing Mac BeebEm here. I don't know if it includes a debugger.

Re: High Score Challenge S13 - R10 - Volcano

Could they have designed this game to be any more difficult...? It's hard enough to pick up the people, but then to add a time limit on the return trip is :twisted: You do remember who picked this one don't you Chris? I figured it would be "fun" to see how much we could improve with some practice.....

Re: BeebEm and the M512 80186 Co Pro

Those files were removed from BeebEm because of license and/or copyright concerns, as the source files came from MAME. With the change in MAME license a few years ago, maybe these files could be included in BeebEm again? Presumably the speech emulation could be re-added too. Yes! I've just checked ...

^ found original instructions :) : Interesting, the instructions aren't accurate ... you only need one tea leaf to reset your energy, not 5. Continuing the HSC tradition of finding bugs in games ... I found you don't need to collect any tea leaves, you can press T at any time to reset to max energy...
