Hello,

here a new version of Bitume (v005) without the Shoot bug (thanks to @Nich and @remax to report this) and without Yellow Buggies Bug (thanks to @Joseman to report this)
This version also include the IMPDraw Overscan Loading Screen with loader (thanks to @Ast)

Update 17/12 :
A version of Bitume (v006) with a new loading screen have been made by @Kukulcan and CED (from cpc-power) and the result is amazing.

This is a neat game and reminds me of Asphalt and of a game I tried to make some years ago.

Really like the fire animation by the way. Helps make each kill feel satisfying. :)
Favorite CPC games: SwitchBlade, Stryker in the Crypts of Trogan, Turrican II, UN Squadron, Oh Mummy

It's a kind of sequel of Asphalt and there's a big gesture about it somewhere in the game  :D

December is going to be a great CPC Christmas month for me.  :)

Because I've focused all of my time creating 8-bit Memoirs, everything else has been put on hold. This has resulted in a massive queue of interesting new CPC games for me to play during December. It's gonna be awesome!  8)

I'm reminded of this every time someone posts about a game they've created.  :D

Hi @Arnaud

I made a mass storage version of bitume last version (with overscan)

I only had to remove the code of erasing the screen before  execute the game, I run out of space without interfere with the game code, hence the little corruption after the overscan screen and the game...

I'm playing my version and it appears to work well

Mind you if we upload this version too?

P.S. very good game!!!

Hi

I enter on an endless loop with red car on the sea level, 2 yellow buggies tried to overtake me and i didn't allow them to by running at the same speed.

Then one of the buggies finally pass me and left the road to the right, and i kill the oter buggie... since then nobody appears on the road, 10 minuts by now!

ok2

Again reproduced the bug! this was on the level 3, i let the first buggy overtake me and let it go away to the right... again, nobody appears on the road since then..

ok3

this time with orginal version (with overscan), no m4, only the cpc6128, the same, on level 3 if you let the buggy overtake you and let it go away to the right... endeless loop

Sorry but I don't really understand what's the problem with the erasing screen?
Bitume runs perfectly on xmass (with impdos)

Cpc-Power also have also reports this bug (http://www.cpc-power.com/index.php?page=detail&num=14916).

Well this version is not yet bug free  ::)

Ii'll take a look, thanks for reporting @Joseman

Arnaud.

the overscan version only active amsdos, just for this it doesnt' work on m4/xmass

and it use #A000 - #A038, that, in my opinion, can be a problem if a lot of roms are loaded...

Concerning the xmass, activing the rom 7 is not a problem with iMPdos... :p
iMPdos detects if the game is launched from a disc or from xmass...
Concerning, the roms installed, it' s not really a problem (concerning adress you spoke about)
Great work for the M4 version!!!

What is the more safe address in the range #A000-#A600 for amsdos, and ... about 10 roms more or less?

I'm not sure, then i take the entire range...

I would use a basic loader and check HIMEM. This will be automatically adjusted for more roms.
Then compare that against the max address you use and report an error if HIMEM is too low.

Then you will always know when it's safe to load or not.

Ok Ok, but there isn't correct only test amsdos!  maybe it doesn't matter to impdos, but for M4 and any rom that replaces the amsdos calls, if its enviroments are corrupted or only amsdos is reloaded they won't work!!!
