Quote from: MacDeath on 18:06, 15 May 10Flying Shark is not THAT slow... the animation also is smooth and quite constant if I remember well.But, well, only need a little speed boost.The major issue is the colour of the bullets.It sometimes mix so much with the background you can't see them that well.perhaps if those could have flickering colours (alternate between 2 colours...)Also perhaps the sprites are a bit less coloured than they could.If the background's tiles are properly re-done form the speccy, the sprites are not (still in 2 colours).And colours could have been a bit betterly choosen.Exemple : 1st level :yellow + orange + light green + black.3 colours "containning" Yellow... no wonder you can't see the bullet.Perhaps getting the light yellow in White may be better.Or something like that.But the 27 colours palette from old CPC is actually not that easy to work with.Really unbalanced, it can be great for some sutff, and bad for some others.
Quote from: MacDeath on 22:17, 15 May 10I know it's a good palette for a 1984's computer...27 colours is far more than what a Speccy or C64 can offer.And as I said it's a bit unbalanced.Lack of Greys (only one...) and proper "Browns" (Dark red is not a real brown, nor is the Orange...) actually.This means you can't get reallistic stuff (wood or stone) or Grim and Gritty ambiances...I always say that if the CPC did have the 32 colours it could actually handle, with let's say +2 greys (light and dark), + 3 Browns (light, medium and dark) it could have change a lot of thing.But the Colours were generated strangely with a 3 level for each RGB... 3 levels, not even bits...I don't know if +5 custom colours could have been added to those.

Quotea cpc with 32 colours would have made it very interesting i couldnt agree more. there was lack of greys and browns and at times lack of grim and grittyness graphically.but why have 3 modes ? that always bugged me about the cpc it felt so limited in that area. would it have been possible to have better GFX modes than the 3 it had ?mode 1 would have been better with atleast 10 colours and not 4.mode 2 was really annoying only ever used for serious applications like wordprocessing etc mode 0 lovely colour but usually meant GFX were blocky and movement slow

QuoteI think what you are talking about is the video hardware of the enterprise computer.
Quote from: robcfg on 18:53, 22 April 10Zynaps had one of the best music I've ever heard on CPC!
Quote from: Shredder11 on 20:07, 09 July 10 One of my favourites and yes the music is brilliant, although the collision detection during the game was frustrating. Great game though!
Quote from: TFM/FS on 20:30, 09 July 10 ... at the moment I'm thinking about Starglider - one of my favorite games - how would it look like in an 128 KB version?
Quote from: Pentagon on 00:47, 10 July 10I wanted to try "Dun Daragh" again. The animation and the flying hair of that dude is so cool. "IRIDI?"
QuoteI really liked Marsport and have fond memories of taking it to my uncles house to show him, while the new single by a~ha 'Take On Me' was playing from a cassette.
Quote from: mr_lou on 16:50, 26 August 10For your information, I didn't get myself a standard version of girlfriend. (I've seen what those does to a man). QuoteIn other words she's ugly... and a van or lorry driver Instead I got the complete-geeky girlfriend. You got the joystick yourself you say? So go ahead and beat her record on Bosconian: She reached level 12 and got 221.930 points. Come back when you've reached her level of geekiness. QuoteRecord smeckord, the only game a girl will ever beat me at is Barbie! Or dressing up! Barge poles, and all that. Another example that, I think, should make her opinions both valid and respected among all geeks:Me: "I've got a great idea! Let's get an arcade machine!"Her: "....where would we put it?"Me pointing to the corner of the hall: "It can stand right there in the corner."Her: ".....nah, I'd rather have it in the living room" QuoteAre you sure you haven't married a bloke? P.S.: If Bosconian 87 was that great, how come it didn't score any points in this poll. You're down-voted ukmarkh. QuoteA bad game you hate, a good game I love... simples. I imagine it wasn't first peoples choice, wasn't mine either. Doesn't make it a bad game.
