Christmas Tune DPC+ demo


Recommended Posts

Unfinished (way unfinished)...

Posting my first attempt at this song, don't know if it will be fixed or final before Christmas.


This uses the Pitfall II type of 3-channel music, with notes in tune.

DPC+ needs Stella 3.1 or newer for emulation,

Oops, Harmony or Harmony Encore 2600 cart for real hardware will not work as I did not merge it with the header..



Thanks to Supercat via SpiceWare for this assembly routine.

It has a nice vibrato effect, a little bit better than Stay Frosty 2 as this is just doing the tune and a simple sprite display and not an entire game engine logic.


DPC+ music has to be done in assembly as no kernel has been made for batari Basic.


I got the color changed, and tried to have the display flip (so it is more tree-like), but no luck with my newbie asm skills!

Joystick speeds it up, but default 0 is already quite fast.




Merry Christmas to all here that celebrate it, and Happy Holidays to everyone else!

Have you ever tried to compensate TIA's volume compression? IMO the music should sound even better then.

No I have not.

The most I can do is enter note data.

This player and the nice sound of the playback is all thanks to the programming of Supercat when DPC+ was first created.
