We just put online 64 NOPs, a new tech blog for Amstrad CPC computers aiming at improving your skills to create awesome stuff on your Amstrad. New articles will be regularly added, some of them are already in progress.

Nice content, I will take the time to read the article appropriately ;

But my first, immediate reaction is: why not extending the current Memory Full website (http://www.memoryfull.net/) instead of creating a new WordPress blog ?

Targhan

Nice and clean presentation. I hope new contents will be added soon. Many people seems to be interested in hardware scrolling...

Feel free to add it to any relevant section on the wiki - front page, links page, programming resources, whatever :)

Thanks for your words!
Some words about the story of this blog. The idea was born when some people here asked me to write articles about splitting. I didn't start by writing that, but after some discussions with Toms, we had the more general idea to propose a website with articles on all subjects related to the development on CPC (demos, games, software, hardware, etc.).  The articles on the splitting will come later!

@norecess : we wanted to do what you say first, but Memory Full is a site dedicated to the history of the CPC and not to development... Moreover, WordPress allows for flexible layout, contributors can layout their articles themselves, you can work on draft versions, easily insert images, etc. In short, it was less work for us to use WordPress.

@Gryzor : yes, thanks!

@Targhan : there is nothing rigid, but an article should appear every 2 weeks at the beginning. But it will probably depend on external contributors... like you :)

Hwikaa just published the first article of a serie about designing graphics...

Damn it ended just as it was beginning to be really interesting!

Great tutorial style, looking forward to the next installment!

Hwikaa

Thanks for the kind words, guys. This was my very first ever article, so I'm happy - and relieved - that you found it interesting. And there's much, much more to come. :)

The blog is still growing... Grim wrote an article about Fast decimal scoring system. This time, it's a bit more game programming oriented ;)

BSC

Great! But why is half of the articles in french?  :P ;)

No, seriously, this is awesome and I might want to write something about my new music engines some day ..

I don't think there has been a news for this, but @m_dr_m published an article on 64 Nops about instruction timing and the modified flags. Bookmarked!!

Another one by Madram: Rosetta Sugar. J'apprends à coder AVEC mon CPC. Don't panic yet, the article is in english ;)

Second part of the series initiated by Madram: La Lypémanie Vaut Mieux. Cross-Language inside!

roudoudou

great to see there is an alternative to SDCC, finally!!!
use RASM, the best assembler ever made :p

I will survive

Targhan

Getting more interesting. @m_dr_m Please pick one language and go for it. English readers would be interested in this article, and one language allows better reading. This is not amslive. You can actually reach an audience here.

I'm not an English reader ! I'm a tea-leaves reader.


I asked for cues that non-french speaking readers would be interested.

Very interesting read! I still use the old random number generator ripped by "some guy" from a Spectrum game. Next time I'll use what's explained in the article. Thanks!
