Re: Retro Memories

Nice work Pablo! I agree about the creative side of our beloved Acorn 8-bits. The nostalgia fuels creativity. It does truly don't it my mate aerworuld.

Graphic are not on my radar - I would not know where to start! Hopefully I will be able to shrink the main program down and speed it up by replacing some of the stuff with machine code. That way if someone wanted to add graphics they could run it in a mode where that is possible... Might well be wo...

It sounds very interesting this system of yours. I was hoping to do a PAW for the BBC Micro myself, with graphics similar to TKV. Yours seems like it's got some of the right stuff and it's going the right way, I hope you do well LardoBoffin

Re: New version of Centipede for the BBC Micro (in progress)

Some disk filing systems let you use star commands as shorthand for loading and running programs with *RUN. So *CENTI would work if CENTI was on a DFS disk, but not if it was on a cassette. I don't know what the underlying mechanism is for this. Perhaps someone will explain it to us. :) Cheers, dav...

Re: New version of Centipede for the BBC Micro (in progress)

DFS and ADFS check for filing-system specific commands such as *ACCESS . Then, if it's not one of those, they behave as though you'd typed *RUN FOO. NFS natively recognises a tiny handful of commands like *I AM and *BYE (is that the lot?). Other commands, it passes to the fileserver, which can impl...

The star command version only works with things like ROMs and disks, not tapes.
I'm sorry my BBC ROM dyslexia is pretty poor I understood that you could only run * commands on things that were setup to run these commands in (loaded) ROMs? :?
