Of course, but nothing prevents to ask why it was not written in english. Or is it forbidden because people will be offended by a relevant question (hello targhan)?

The way you asked, it came across negative and confrontational. It may not seem to you, and that could be because perhaps English is not your first language. By the way you're responding now (forbidden?), it makes me think it wasn't a case of "lost in translation", but anyway.

IMHO you could have phrased it differently and the result would have been way different.
Released The Return of Traxtor, Golden Tail, Magica, The Dawn of Kernel, Kitsune`s Curse and Brick Rick for the CPC.

If you like my games and want to show some appreciation, you can always buy me a coffee.

Quote from: Bug Powell on 18:38, 18 July 21So, in your opinion, by asking publicly "why *someone* did *something*", it is agressive? Seriously?

No, not the first question. As I said, politely asking is always well received here. It's the other two sentences, where you give a reason that could be ethically questionable and then explain, why this is bad behaviour.

Why did roudoudou write his articles in french? does he think that people who are not french can not be interested by fdc programming? the cpc community will never grow up if you keep writing technical articles in a language that most people can not understand.
i tried to write in english first but i wasn't inspired, sorry
Grimm is supposed to do a proper translation, "soon" (in fact i cannot tell when)

use RASM, the best assembler ever made :p

You should NEVER be forced/percieved to be forced to have your content in another language, thats for someone else to translate, be proud of your language and use of!!!


English isnt some universal standard, going by population Chinese is a better language :)
6128 for the win!!!

ajcasado

To choose the language of his work is a privilege of the author. If the work is of your interest and you are lazy to learn that language (as in my case), you can always translate it with automatic translators. If you need some clarification ask the author or the community for help.
I guess that if someone takes the trouble to share his/her knowledge, will be eager to help with any question.

Great point. Maybe we should start writing in Mandarin to promote interest and ignite a Chinese scene (edit: it seems pretty big already. http://cpc.people.com.cn/)

How much ROM would you need to fit the chinese characters?

Once again, "same drama". People do not have to justify themselves when writing any kind of content. Please keep in mind everything is done on a voluntary basis ; @roudoudou could just sleep and enjoy some relaxing time instead ;-)

That said, @Bug Powell , there is an excellent resource for Amstrad CPC programming all in English (with an orientation on demomaking): http://cpctech.org.uk/ , created by @arnoldemu . Content is a bit old but it's still relevant. All the examples in there are pretty clear. I just tried the URL and it did not work for me, but it's still accessible thanks to web.archive.org: https://web.archive.org/web/20210606202240/http://cpctech.org.uk/

http://cpctech.org.uk redirect to https://cpctech.cpcwiki.de which uses a autosigned certificate. Sure, any modern browser will be reluctant to go there.

@Gryzor : you need to know about 3000 characters to read a Chinese newspaper, so if you could represent each in 8 bytes like the English alphabet, you would need about 24k. However, in total, there are over 50,000 Chinese characters, meaning you would need over 400k.
Therefore, the answer is " a LOT of ROMs"! :D

@m_dr_m It would appear that your link goes to a site that has very little to do with retro computing :D :D

Mmmyeah,I think you need more than 8 bytes for those drawings...

Animalgril987

Yeah, some of the more complex ones are probably about 3/4 English characters in size to be readable. So as I said; a lot of ROMs :D

Once again, CPC people you are too nervous.
As wrote previously, the problem is the way you have said things "in english". And don't search to put the fault on the CPC peoples, because you do the same some weeks ago for a Discord access... For what in the end? Nothing.

Where is the drama? If asking a question is a drama or not polite...

That's not asking a polite question, that's whinging about french people doing things in french and the whole CPC community for having the temerity to have non-english-speaking members. Don't be disingenuous.
Additionally, the whole "stop being oversensitive, you're only offended because you misinterpreted what I was saying" thing is textbook gaslighting.

Ahem. Can we stop with the drama now people? It's only Tuesday! :D

Seriously, who would like to join a discord channel for which you have to beg for it?
That avoid to have some trolls... :-\
