Ah, sorry about that. The problem was I accidentally blew away my old compiler during tests of the new one, and building with the new one wasn't fitting in the 8k banks Mario Bros uses, so rebuilding the code had become non-trivial.

 

I decided to take another look at it, which ended up being helpful since I found my new libs pulling in lots of dependent code that I didn't need. It fit nicely when I fixed that, and so I went ahead and rewrote the keyboard interface. Q and Y will now work as joystick buttons in joystick mode. In keyboard mode, full 2 player is possible (Luigi uses J and K to move and Y or P to jump, Mario still uses S and D to move, and Q or Space to jump). There's no split key/joy mode.

 

Last version though, barring any new bugs from the upgrade (I didn't play too far)!

Nice!  This game is worthy of some additional attention - so good!

In Js99er.net.   After playing, then leave the game for a while (pause and goes to a demo mode),

when playing again in level 3 can clear all the coins, but it keeps running and it shows additional coins and no bonus.

(this remains, also in next games when reaching level 3). 

Until a full reset is done, then the game works okay again.

Is this a bug report for Js99er or in Mario Bros? I mean, can you confirm that this doesn't happen on real iron? I'm not fast enough at the bonus round to be able to reproduce the issue.

High probability it's in Mario Bros. I appreciate having the video, not sure when I'll look at it or if I'll be able to solve it, but will peek.

Was able to reproduce this even starting directly on level 3.

No guarantees, but you can try rev G here (I wish I'd used a point name instead of incrementing the letter). This has:

- potential fix for double-counting coins on bonus stage in single player mode

- updated compiler and better compiler flags

- make sure we can accept credits during attract play

Both my Chrome and Firefox think your file contains malware (which is not true, of course).

I've been getting that more lately too. AI detections, usually.

 

Since it doesn't even contain PC compatible code, it can fuck right off. ;)

If you browse the web, you at /least/ need an adblocker (either on the machine or at your router). Otherwise you are guaranteed to get hit by a drive-by ad virus. There are too many of them out there.

 

Some research suggests that they've literally decided to kill off ZIP files by automatically declaring them dangerous. I haven't tested this yet.

This is stupid AF, as the kids would say.  I know systems which reject password-protected Zip files, which I am ambivalent toward.  With minimal processing power, even a poison Zip (say 200k Zip which expands to a terrabyte) can be rejected if the headers are analyzed and validated, first.

 

As for Zip files in general, a good real-time protection will catch anything bad which hits the filesystem, provided the anti-malware software can catch it.  Since handling Zips is not a fileless process, this will catch whatever bad comes through.  I do think archival programs should also offer some level of protection against bad archive files, as well.  Not anti-malware, but at least confirm with the user if an archive is going to do something unexpected.

 

Summarily discarding Zips is lazy.

As a long-time Mac user I've never been compelled to install any terrible virus detection sw and have never had any issues (knock on my wooden head). I know that there *are* macos viruses out there, but seems pretty rare. 

 

Browser ad/tracker blockers, however, are essential.

As well as worms, browser sandbox break with privilege escalation, heap overflowing images, unsanitized input parsing for SMS reading tools.  Apple and Google were first-to-fall favorites at Pwn2Own for several years.  Now they have begun including cars.

 

MacOS X currently has more known total vulnerabilities than Windows 10, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2019.  Those vulnerabilities number ~50% more than Windows 7, and almost three times as many as Windows Server 2022.  The numbers for Windows Server are significant as Windows Server represents an evolution of the same code-base going back to (at least) 2008.  By year, the numbers look much more favorable to MacOS X depending upon the year.  In 2024, MacOS is holding at double the number for its nearest Windows competitor.

 

This is not to start a flame war between OS camps, just a note that no operating system is secure, and that one lock has seven tumblers versus the other's five make little difference to the guy on the other side.  Any less vigilance because "my operating system is less vulnerable and more secure than yours " is at one's own peril, and the potential suffering of others.

 

As an illustrative case, I recently did a post-mortem on a firewall which would not reboot and would not enumerate the local network.  It did not affect other operations.  No one in the environment accessing the Internet knew anything was afoot.  However, the post-mortem found a hidden and non-deletable user account and a botnet slave embedded in the system's non-volatile storage.

 

Also note recent FBI involvement in shutting down a botnet which had spread through vulnerable routers and firewalls.

 

Good bad actors make sure you do not know they are there.  One can be arrogant and say they take all the precautions they need to avoid infection or attack.  But ignoring any additional avenue of defense is foolish.  The average time between infiltration and detection is 229 days.  Of those breaches, two-thirds of victims were notified by someone else.  No one is too small to be a target.  No one has information or resources which are of no value.  And, the automation of attacks makes everyone an easy target.

You must be fun at parties! ;)

 

Well ignorance must be bliss then...
