Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

Very nice! I noticed with the latest build that the startup-music of each level and when missing a ball seems to be missing a note at the beginning.

Also see here for the areas where the pipe-outline has errors:

Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

The cyan-pipe-border has two bugs in them since a few builds. See two pipes from the bottom left and right. Extra-lifes should be awarded at 20.000 and then every 60.000 if I understand the documentation online correct. Laser still goes through gold-bricks while it shouldn't. Waiting for the E-extra...

Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

Ok, gave it another test run, and I got closer to the sound-effects-missing-issue in Vice: - If I set Autostart setting - PRG autostart mode to "Disk image" everything works as expected - If I set Autostart setting - PRG autostart mode to "Virtual FS" effects sound are missing fo...

Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

Latest bug report: - ingame-audio starts a little quicker now, but still about 5 seconds of silence (no effects) after game-start - C-extra still has the ball always going in the same direction. This makes it impossible to solve a level if the last piece is in a place you cannot reach - collision de...

Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

Am using the same, freshly built version on Linux. But it's fine here. :( It really doesn't have to do with VICE, as said it worked fine in your commit from a week ago! I checked with the VICE-monitor to confirm it never reaches the part that sets the volume. So it must have been something you chan...

Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

- when using VICE (drag and drop arukanodio.prg into the VICE-window), the game starts and plays the music, but the actual sounds during gameplay are silent for the first 10 seconds or so. Probably another value that is not correctly reset in memory on game-start. I checked with the VICE-monitor an...

Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

Nice! Here's my usual bug report :-) - I can't move to the right completely using paddles, only with joystick. There is about one multicolor-pixel missing. Tried on real machine and VICE - I had a situation during play where the ball went below the bat at the bottom, but it did not register, so the ...

Yes! This "It looks like it mistakenly recognizes the paddle and as such goes to the far left. Just tried in VICE 2.4 - same behaviour." was only my observations on the joystick-issue. The paddle-control was always fine and needed no fixing.

Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

It looks like it mistakenly recognizes the paddle and as such goes to the far left. Just tried in VICE 2.4 - same behaviour. Odd. No effect on the lastest build of VICE. Just added some threshold to the paddle detection. ??? What do you mean? The joystick already worked fine with the fix to "i...

Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

Found another bug that sets the pipe-color (at the border of the screen) to pink instead of light cyan. Basically when the music-player still runs it will dec $900e after you set it to $b0 in your main.asm. You coud probably just set it like this: lda $900e and #$0f ora #@(* light_cyan 16) ; Auxilia...

Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

I think I found the error: "is_using_paddle" is not initialized in the source-code. So whenever by chance this value is not zero on program start, the program will believe you are using paddles.

Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

Looks a little better, but still does not work when I drag and drop the file into VICE. The bat immediately goes to the left and stays there. It works if I do a manual stop/restore before starting. Same behaviour on my VIC-20 with Mega-Cart when I start through the file browser. Somehow the VIA-regi...

Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

Yes, but just checked on the real machine. It works even worse there. Most of the times it does not work at all, even if I stop/restore or sys65017 before starting. Some other times it works. I tried other games and all these work fine. Definitely something fishy going on here... Edit: Just tried wi...

Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

Very nice! Tried it for a little while, here's my bug report: - joystick detection does not work unless run/stop-restore is done before "RUN" when loading from disk. This is probably due to comparing to numerical values instead of set bits? This is a common problem - disk access sets (or e...
