Ecernosoft Posted December 21, 2022 Share Posted December 21, 2022 (edited) Ok, so, I'll admit it. At first I was not a fan of the 5200/8bit. Their sprite capabilities were only one step above the 2600, compared to the 7800 which is one giant leap away from the 5200/8bit. And it's background capabilities aren't great either. But I decided to give the poor '79 machine another chance, and I'm glad I did! It's got a lot of tricks up it's sleeve. Sure, it's harder to use said tricks than on the 7800, but I'm getting bored of that machine, time to switch things up! And plus, those color or'ing capabilities in PRIOR %xxxx0000 are awesome. Can't forget the hires P/M tricks too! Here is beta version 8.0: Conner And Anthony VB8.0.atr; Actual game. (Music has been disabled.) ConnerandAnthony_VB8.0.a Source code (Note: Won't assemble correctly if you try, since this is a "32K cartridge". Sorry, no source code this time. Thanks for understanding. Please note: Due to the fact that I don't want to rename the included file in the Makefile DASM code, For now, (This will change) the files don't have the version names. Sorry. NOTE: VB4.5 doesn't sound right, and this is because SOMEONE forgot the pokey sawtooth rule.... VB5.0 fixes this glitch and therefore sounds right. Requirements: Atari 800 w/ 48K RAM ; In case you are wondering, Anthony is Conner's brother. He is also blue. Since I don't have a real 800/800xl to test on, someone who does please test for me! Updates: Note: The only difference between VB1.0 and VB2.0 is the code. "gameplay" is the same. VB3.0: Music update. VB4.0: displaying the new misty maze palette that is.... acceptable. I'm still working on the gfx though. VB4.5: Bass line added to the music! ; Isn't that a better color palette? (Note: This is an NTSC game. Sorry PAL users, but the game will look wrong for you. I will add a way to correct the colors for PAL users though.) VB5.0: Music is FIXED. Get this version and NOT VB4.5. VB5.5: Identical to VB5.0 gameplay wise except for the fact that Marble speedway's palette is present, AND there are some code differences. \ VB6.0: Disk image included AND a spinning thing for Marble speedway. VB7.0: Music done. (Reminder: This is actually ICT3's music. Don't worry, the other zones AND C&A will get better, longer music. I was trying to get a system working. But, it sounds good, so I think I'll keep it! ) Also I Added Animated chains. VB7.5: Aqua beach song (mostly) done. Second half is missing though. VB8.0 boss fight music added. I'm still wondering if ICT3 will get music though. I'm also going to change the color palette for Meta village zone. And Now Marble speedway is Marble Alley, and the "Green hill zone" graphic is in the game, however that will be changed (for obvious reasons). Merry christmas everyone. 😃 Edited January 2 by Ecernosoft 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
