...and now, the four tables of the game :

[attachimg=1]

You should see them animated! ^_^

Even though it's still very early in the project (and a lot of CBM fanboys would kill me on sight), I have to say that I prefer the CPC version to the Amiga! Rhino is, without a shadow of a doubt, the "Coding God" of the Amstrad!

I got proved that a 464 can load tapes recorded at 6500 bauds.

i tested that on my 464, Turrican 2 intro part played in 1mn05, and each level took 20 seconds to load :)

I'm interested. Can you elaborate? Provide links to tools and documentation?

Back to topic, the pinball screens are... gorgeous? Given the platform limitations, there's no word strong enough!
Had a CPC since 1985, currently software dev professional, including embedded systems.

I made the first CPC cross-dev environment that auto-installs C compiler and tools: cpc-dev-tool-chain: a portable toolchain for C/ASM development targetting CPC.

Hey Rhino,


I'm amazed at this preview. I have a few questions, if the CPU use is only about 50% does this leave the possibility to have the songs using samples for 1 of 2 of the channels, perhaps using Arkos Tracker v2? I love the AY for some sounds (bass, drums etc) but sometimes the square wave is annoying for main melody channels! I was curious if any of the channels might have sampled sound?


Also I'm assuming this game will be a paid one, or at the very least you should setup a donation account for all the hard work gone into it?


Thanks,


Sice

I'm sorry to answer so late, but I've been disconnected from the retro world for a while.

The problem using samples is basically a memory issue.  On the other hand, we can not sell physical editions since we do not have the rights, but we have thought about doing a very limited edition only for developer members. And thank you for your donation offer, but we are happy to do it just for hobby and love to CPC.

Regards!

I'm just curious, because I don't know: Do I need somekind of right permissons if I copy an idea and design and "only" transfering it to an outdated computer with no commercial potential?

Yes you need.
Youtuber Hiponios paid 2000e for making a smurf game for the Amiga with a game designer software.
The game was free for download, 50 persons got it.


You really don't know when and who will hit you.
I wish we had an answer from PD's rights owner.

Ideas are not copywriteable. Execution, though, is. And 'design' is execution, so yes, you do.

Please don’t say that! The demo you released showed how capable our CPC could be in the right hands. I’d love to see this reach completion especially given the C64 version is still AWOL!

Pinball dreams is already really amazing - I had no idea that this kind of smooth scrolling and sophistication in graphics is even possible on the CPC.
