Quote from: Gryzor on 21:08, 13 June 09WWhat is trackmos?
Quote from: Longshot on 15:12, 16 June 09A trackmo is not a megademo.A megademo is composed of a loader with different parts, very often with their own music. A trackmo (the first one was from scoopex in 1990) is used when there is no "break" in the show and the music is never stopped.To do a trackmo on cpc, you need a loader able to execute others things while it loads data.
Quote from: arnoldemu on 13:48, 17 June 09The first version of my loader is now ready (no music):1. a "master maker" program which you use to format disc and to put your files into the special format2. source code for loader so you can use it in your programs to load the programs put onto the disc.3. Standard DATA format for track 0 (so you can display graphics with CAT), a different format for other tracks.I am working on the master maker program so that it will report more errors, and then on the loader so I can use every byte on the disc.
Quote from: Axelay on 20:08, 17 June 09I was wondering, will there be source code for saving as well? If you used it in a game and wanted to save a high score table to disk, for example.
Quote from: arnoldemu on 14:32, 19 June 09Currently no, but I can add that.There is already code for writing files, so that needs adapting.BTW, this is code for a special loader not one that writes AMSDOS files.If you need code to read/write AMSDOS files (and still be allowed to use the RAM that the firmware occupies) then I can provide this too (same kind of code that some cracks use).
