A couple of days ago there was a meeting of Batman Group members in my house and I showed what I am working these days.
My idea is to dedicate a few more days to complete a small engine for games with horizontal scroll at multiple speeds in both directions, and back with Pinball Dreams ASAP.

The game for which I am doing this will be not a BG game, nor a Mario conversion, that is just a test skin.
Sounds cool. And the Mario map just looks so good as a test case, it's one of the reasons I used it when testing my Plus scrolling engine. It looks very pretty for the classic hardware though. :-)

The CPC already has the same strong colours as Segas consoles Surprisingly it can do graphics of the same quality as the Sega master system too. Thumbsup!

Hi!

I did not expect any of this to come to light at such an early stage of development, but our community manager is a very active and restless guy :) So, this is the story of those screenshots:

A colleague from another group asked me a couple of weeks ago for a horizontal scrolling routine, so I started to think about possibilities of doing it pixel by pixel at 50 fps for 64kb of RAM and a large screen size.

A couple of days ago there was a meeting of Batman Group members in my house and I showed what I am working these days.
My idea is to dedicate a few more days to complete a small engine for games with horizontal scroll at multiple speeds in both directions, and back with Pinball Dreams ASAP.

The game for which I am doing this will be not a BG game, nor a Mario conversion, that is just a test skin.

Regards!


Hello Rhino :)


That's really awesome, so the classic CPC is able to do full screen/overscan in 50 fps pixel per pixel scroll ? doh !

There have been several C64 fanboys on Youtube claiming that no CPC game updates at 50Hz

That is incorrect as we know.

Mission Genocide is 50Hz. 50hz display, 50hz logic/game update. :)

If your games took 30 minutes to load from an external tape deck and had a palette that was as bland as butter, you'd be angry too  :laugh: :laugh:
