Latest revision (726) as always in VICE 3.1. There never is a sound with the break-extra (when leaving the level to the right). I specifically checked both digis and normal sound.

Edit: This sound at 13:58 specifically: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Th-Z6QQ5AOQ&t=13m56s

Also found an error in the docs:

# Title screen keys

* A, S, D, F: Move screen around.

Should be H,J,K,L instead

Well, looks like everything got fixed with 736 – sound is good with the latest VICE built from the repo.

Am not too sure when the bonuses appear but I hope it got very much like the original.

Can't say if it works now, since I never got a B-block anymore in the last 20 minutes of play :( While this may be realistic, for testing purposes can you go back to the old behaviour?

Edit: Finally got a B-block. No sound effect at all. Latest VICE as always :cry:

No. :mrgreen:

But you can pick your bonuses with rev. 739 (key 0 (random) or 1-7) :)

I tried on my real VIC with Rev 736 for 20 minutes just now. No B-block appeared. Also I never saw a P-block in the last 45 minutes (real and emulated).

I've barely managed to complete the first level this way. Really frustrating... Although I use paddles, at some time the ball just gets too fast to be able to honestly catch it. Before with all the B- and P-bocks I could at least see more levels. Like this, there is no way I would ever see levels after 3 or 4...

Will check rev 739 now. Edit: Ok, checked. Picking the extras work fine. However still no sound effect for the B-block when exiting the level... even on real hardware.

#750 is out. Most notable thing is probably the splash screen with countdown for the tape version.

#753 (with the new digis) is now available for download: http://hugbox.org/pixel/software/vic-20/arukanoido/

Lots of things broken again. %p

Rev. #815 is out at http://hugbox.org/pixel/software/vic-20/arukanoido/

The obstacles are now circling around at the bottom of the screen (lots more to be done) and it's easier to catch the ball when it hit one. Also, the D bonus is working again.

Much more fun to play!

High quality arcade digis will be made available for Utlimem, FE3, Megacart(?) and McCes' "Vic adaptive" – audio decompression in the tape loader is working so far. If there isn't any of those expanders you can choose beamrider's tunes or have in-games sounds replaced by the arcade ones.

Probably not. Thanks a bunch… but I must admit that just that message doesn't help a lot. Will give the cart version some extra testing.

Did I mention that I'll never ever set a release date for a game again? :D
