Lines Demo 2 (CPC Basic)
« on: 02:28, 04 March 16 »
Hello there,


under normal circumstances I would not have been able to come up with the next release so quickly.
But you guys helped me within minutes and hours after I posted a question. So I just had to do what you told me instead of reading, trying, failing and cursing another 1001 times.


Please enjoy my lines demo 2.

Thanks Fessor for color cyling and screen ram grabbing help, Morri for being an impressive role model for Basic coders and all others who helped with clever advice. I already mentioned you in the greetings part. :-)


The next release will take longer, I will read about hardware, z80, sprites and so on. While I learn, I motivate myself by watching what you cool CPC dudes do on the machines Sir Alan Sugar gave us as his heritage.


I don't want to protect my sourcecode since we should all profit from one another.

Yeah, its impressive what can be done in and with Basic. Even some commercial Games are programmed in Basic with some MC-Extensions.
Hanse (100% Basic), Radzone (Basic with MC), Pirates(!) (Basic with MC) to name a few.

Pirates?!?! Jeez I didn't know that.
I believe that all kind of round-based games should work fine in Basic.
Games that work real-time can get timing problems/slowdowns.

This is a nice usage of the fill command for the first effect!


Next time, try to use mode 0 for color cycling effect in basic


Take a look at my former demo basic demo 2, there is a lot of tricks in it!


starfield in color cycling mode 0
moving big blocks in mode 1 refreshing only differences
it's a little slow but visual is ok

Thanks roudoudou,


I know your demos already and think you really know how to treat an Amstrad machine.  ;D
