Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

Yes, seems so. In my playtesting I just ran into this: aruk.png Some "dirt" seems to have remained at the bottom after the last level was completed. Also "High Score" at the top is missing a letter. I have also uploaded a VICE-snapshot here, so you can verify memory contents: htt...

Re: WIP: Manic Miner port

Perils of Willy was 16K on the VIC-20. Sadly, I suck at these games, could barely finish the first level. Looks very true to the original though.

Re: New physical cartridge release: Cheese And Onion

Nothing to do with VICE. You can just rip the image from the cart by using an XPander for example by saving BLK1,2,3 and 5 and then start with SYS64802. No special magic about it. Made a version for myself this way that I just crunched with exomizer and can load and run from SD. I cannot share this ...

I would specifically like to see how the Micromys V5 that groepaz mentioned earlier looks on this.

Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

Just tried playing with the digi-sound. While it may work for the music in the game, the in-game sounds sound really harsh and cause ear-bleeds after about a minute or so. Furthermore, they decrease the frame-rate considerably so that you can hardly follow the ball. When you get 3 balls it's absolut...

Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

I had a go yesterday and found a glitch. I had a Laser and catched a B-block. I was firing the laser when going into the break. Then the next level was full of what looks like laser-shots where there are usually spaces.

I actually just tried again and got the same situation.

Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

Would like to up to +32K.... :) Definitely do that, 32K expansions are much more common than 24K-setups. From "Doom" we learned that some people have problems with expanding their VIC with 35K-expansions though. If you want the cart to sell in numbers however you could also use the 3K-are...

Re: SD2IEC on the FE3 Cartridge

I have also heard of people not connecting the SD2IEC of the FE3 to the serial port. However you MUST connect it by serial cable to the serial port. It will NOT magically work through the the expansion-port.

Re: New physical cartridge release: Cheese And Onion

Looking at the screenshots it doesn't look too sophisticated. The description says: "There is only one control: Thurst" (I suppose they meant "thrust"). From what I can see this does not look like something I'd pay 22.99 GBP for. I know I may be wrong and the game might play fant...

Re: Ultimem BLK6

No, the VIC-20 (or more precisely the 6502 CPU) itself does not allow for RAM below ROM (like the C64 does). So you can just use the standard memory-areas that are unused in the VIC-20: RAM1,RAM2,RAM3 ($0400-0fff) BLK1 ($2000-$3fff) BLK2 ($4000-$5fff) BLK3 ($6000-$7fff) IO2 ($9800-$9bff) IO3 ($9c00-...

Re: New physical cartridge release: Cheese And Onion

A package with the early Christmas-gift to myself arrived today:

I'll have both fun playing and cracking it using my XPANDER-3 and SD2IEC.
Of course my cracked copy will stay private :D

Re: HASL for cartridges? (split/OT from: Cheese & Onion)

The game looks so great that I really don't care if the cartridge destroys my VIC-20's port connector over time (the likelihood of which seems pretty low at that)! Misfit, please don't be angered by a single, poorly voiced opinion. eslapion probably means well, but issuing a warning to people not to...

Re: New physical cartridge release: Cheese And Onion

I would like a digital version for those people who buy the cartridge. Otherwise I will have to crack it myself :twisted: (but keep it private of course).
