Re: Run as rom this and make it stay?

I thought about adding a joystick support mode for the MGC but perhaps it would be easier to make mini versions of JOYPLUS that run before the games it supports. Then at least those games would have joystick support.

Re: Did Peter Scott live in Germany?

The sprites from Roving Robot, plus the effect between levels, are just like Haunted House.

Re: LOLPRICE

What I noticed is the cartridge label part number in the photo is SCL02/R, which is the same as the Electron cartridge. If I understand correctly the Master part would be SQL02/R. I was interested in it, but that observation made me cautious about bidding as high as the auction went. At the same ti...

Re: Firetrack maps

I'm not quite following you just yet. :?

The level format is certainly different to the Electron version, which is basically just expanding a run-length-encoded sequence of spans.

Re: Firetrack maps

The plotting routines will be different due to the different screen modes between the versions. I think I tried to figure out the BBC version and couldn't really be bothered at the time. :)

I'll take another look to see if I can find some similar-looking patterns in the data.

Re: MAME: How to ... ?

Is there a way to compile MAME for only one system, or do I have to do a full build first?
I tried this:

Code: Select all

make SOURCES=src/mame/drivers/electron.cpp TOOLS=1
It seems to want to process a lot of things that aren't at all related to the Electron.

Re: Proposed: "The Ultimate Electron Upgrade"

I think it's interesting purely from a ULA replacement angle. Looking at it from a "what would a mass market consumer want" isn't going to make it happen because, of course, you can buy something cheap that emulates an Electron, or whatever. So, it's going to cost more than the casual user is willin...
