Re: 8271 disc controller craziness -- do not try this at home!

Nice progress here everybody and very interesting to follow (though pretty much over my head tbh) Are you guys aware of the Degate tooling? I understand it's designed to help with this sort of stuff, and can help decode ROMS etc https://degate.org/ and the video where I first saw it in action https:...

Re: Spycat variant

Very nice, You should consider filming a long-play and getting it posted on YT (Like Vindaloo recently)

I wonder if that Atari 8bit port took the bug or not?

Mountain Panic NuLA Edition

Hi, It's about time to release to the wild a little mod I've been working on. I started back in 2018 when Dave Footitt released his source code to Mountain Panic on github https://github.com/dave-f/panic . I'd had fun converting Galaforce to the NuLA ( https://stardot.org.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1...

Re: BeebEm for RG350 (Retro Handheld)

Nice work there, I just received a RG350M and was pleased to see your port.

It works really well, I had a good bash at Life of Repton last night!

Are there any config options to push this into a BBC Master Mode? Prince of Persia calls! :wink:

Re: Akalabeth - World of Doom (Ultima 0)

TO" commands which I think are left over from the original source (lines 3087 to 3089 in the uncompressed source). I don't know when you'll get to these (seems dependent on a monster type?) b...

Re: Akalabeth - World of Doom (Ultima 0)

Thanks for the info - indeed I've played a fair bit of it and not hit that path. I've added an init for that var, Apple II BASIC is clearly more forgiving, originally called TASK, defines what monster Lord British says you need to kill.

Oh and yes - Same food scoffing as Apple II

Re: Akalabeth - World of Doom (Ultima 0)

Thanks Chris,

Interesting on the missing var, line 2550, I'm actually wondering if it's a hangup of the BASIC packing in the PRES AdvBasic tool?.
I think I'll do a slightly toned down packed version to see If I can repro
