Programming / Re: Arkos Tracker 2 BASIC support for music and sfx
« Last post by eto on Today at 02:10 »
I wanted to add a toggle for music so the player can turn it off if it's annoying, but if I do that, also all sound effects will be muted.

Is that intended? What can I do to enable sound effects again after turning off[size=78%] the music?[/size]

What French expansions were available back then?
Optical pen, mouse, voice synthesizer, memory expansions, floppy disc drive, ... All using the edge connectors. Peoples with Centronics CPC in France was really annoyed to not be able to connect them.

Hi Andy, from the PCWwiki, we would like to preserve it.

Ok guys, I prepared a RAR file for all the new games patched since the last list update. In each RAR file, for games that need it (specific controls, cheatcodes...), I added a TXT file that gives useful informations about how they work. 56 new games and 6 updates. I even added more informations for some games, like ZOMBI with a little PDF that describes the icons, or BOBBY BEARING in which I give more gameplay informations really missing in the instruction manual.

I also prepared a spreadsheet file with informations needed to update the GX-4000 conversions list : Name, year, author, "Plus" features, quick informations.

I was intenting to add all of this by myself by I have some problems. I'm a bit bother by my own ignorance. I understand the little code of the page to add text informations but how does it work to upload the files ? Where and how to point on them?  :-X

Programming / Re: cpctelera arkos 2 conversion problem
« Last post by prototano on Yesterday at 20:53 »
I'm back with this issue.
I managed to play arkos2 song with Lightweight format  with Arnaud example, but I need to do it with genereic format (AKG). This should be easy as I only need to change the call from PLY_LW_... to PLY_AKG_ But I noticed that the players included in Arkos2 (Arkos2\players\playerAkg\sources) are in .asm format and can't be simple renamed to .s to be included in the cpctelera make. I also noticed that the Lightweight player included in the first posts is different to the one included in Arkos2.
So I think there is need some kind of transformation to make those player functionable in cpctelera. The question is, is there already any PlayerAKG.s that compiles in cpctelera in the same way as PlayerLightweight.s does? I'm really a noob in ASM, maybe there's a easy way from the Arkos2 source file, but I don't know how.
Thanks
Also the Akg version.  ;D

You can get a cpctelera's assembly version of the player if you compile it with rasm and disassembles it with disark.
I have a attach a version of AKM which we used on Promotion (Already converted to cpctelera's assembly).

Thanks so much for this, loved playing it as a kid.
You converted so many games, that's nice to show they manage to give you a game that seems important in your own history ;)

I would assume that the small circuit is a 50Hz clock. On an EU monitor the refresh rate can be derived from the AC voltage, but if the AC is 60Hz (as it is in the US) then you need a new source or the computer needs to be adjusted. Other computers such as the Commodores or Ataris had a US and EU CRTC version, but the CPC only has one version, so the monitor had to be adjusted. It would be interesting to get a picture of the PCB to see what it actually does.

@TotO: What French expansions were available back then?
