What make it almost a 16 bit machine?


his graphics ability + its custom VDP.


Well programmed, the CPC is best out of the 3 main 8 bits machines.

In my heart it's the best but honnestly it lacks a textmode to get a super-speed refresh
use RASM, the best assembler ever made :p

repeat
call code
call sleep
call eat
until alive==1

You mean "Speccy with less colours" because most Speccy ports were 4 colours, or even monochrome.

That's not correct and not fair, MOST speccy games are 2 colors to avoid the color-clash disaster, and here the CPC loses 2 colors (in mode 1), and where the games use all the colors on speccy they look HORRIBLE and burning-eye-color-clash monstrosity, this way the CPC 4 color version is way better just because this horrible effect.

No mention to mode 1 / 16 colors rasters or simply the mode 0 / 16 colors of the amstrad that simply destroy the not-vdp speccy character display.

But that's no CPC fault, the ceiling and the floor can be rasterized on CPC as the ship nor the bullets touch that parts (extra colors), the rest of the graphics can be recolored and use dithering technics to simulate more colors, and the hiper-mega-black-box that the engine on the spectrum do to avoid the color clash.. come on, that's no serious  :laugh:

and again, without comment on mode 0 graphics (r-type 128k remake)

We are talking preciselly about that, CPC was underused during commercial life, most games were simple Spectrum ports and sometimes even using less colours.

Interesting, how does rasterizing allow the use of more colours?

changing the ink with precise timing, look unpredictaball with mode 1 and 16 colors:



I have been playing this game for 2 days and even the feeling is not being playing on a CPC but an EGA PC!!  :laugh:

R-Type is unusual in it's use of colour on the Spectrum though. The vast majority of titles, particularly those that scroll, are monochrome.

Does that mean that the ink is changed after a specific scanline of part section of the screen is drawn?   In that way it is possible to have more colours visible than would otherwise be possible?
