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

=D> Are you going to do an Beebcade (Arcade Compilation) Like a MAME frontend. So you can launch to the different ports you've done. You must have a fair few now.
Look awesome as always Tricky. Nice work.

Note: This is just a bit of extra artwork I put together for Kieran. (Subject to changes). Up to him what he does with it mind you. He seemed to like it. :D I was just doing a test print of it.

Dithering is the key. Best combination for 4 colour screens is Dark Blue, Red, Green and usually black. From that you can get loads of pseudo colours. :D Blue/Red - Purple obviously. Blue/Green - A sort of light Blue colour. Red/Green - A sort of Yellow colour. Then obviously Black/Colour for variou...

It's in Mode 5 and to be honest once everything is loaded up it pretty much takes up nearly all the ram that is left roughly 22k I believe. Although someone like Lurkio or others who've w...
