There hasn't been an update in SIX MONTHS... so... here are the music files I did last year!
It's trying to use/emulate the original sound!

Is there a reason why Soundcloud links only show the first tune in an album?
It looks like I've been lazy and only converted one of the eight tunes! ^_^

Let's see...

Hm indeed even if you post the album link, like
Code: [Select]
https://soundcloud.com/user-744608534-557897601/sets/nicky-boum-amstrad-cpc


it only pulls the first one. They must have changed something over at Soundcloud...

I noticed it when I posted the PINBALL DREAMS CPC soundtrack a while back, but kinda forgot to tell you! SORRY! ^_^

EDIT: It IS the tune that appears on the webpage when you click on the link... so maybe remove the embedded part from Soundcloud?

Well, even a single tune is better than nothing though?

Let me try another random link...


https://soundcloud.com/ultrasyd/sets/chiptunes-18

I just noticed "sets" or playlists are different from Albums, maybe that's why?


PS Huh! That worked! What gives?

WEIRD!!! The only difference I can see is that mine has a "release date" and Ultrasyd's doesn't!
I have tried changing the "type" to Playlist but that didn't work! *confused*

Changing it to EP, Single, Album or Playlist seems to make no difference! Maybe it's an account-type issue! The full album is only available to those with Soundcloud Pro? I dunno!

The embedded code seems to work (see image). Is it possible to check the code (below) with what you have in the forum?

Code: [Select]
<iframe width="100%" height="450" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" allow="autoplay" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/playlists/1023876061&color=%23ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&show_teaser=true"></iframe>

Ah-ha! CTRL+U ... perfect! Nice one!


RaFT's playlist;
Code: [Select]
<iframe data-s9e-mediaembed="soundcloud" allowfullscreen="" scrolling="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/playlists/238282917" style="border:0;height:450px;max-width:900px;width:100%"></iframe>
My crappy rubbish;
Code: [Select]
<iframe data-s9e-mediaembed="soundcloud" allowfullscreen="" scrolling="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/780869128&amp;secret_token=" style="border:0;height:450px;max-width:900px;width:100%"></iframe>
For some reason my playlist links to "tracks" where RaFT's playlist links to "playlists". I have no idea why or how to change it! Time to start an intense HTML course! ^_^

It's a long shot, but I have created a trouble ticket with Soundcloud.
I guess no-one will answer due to COVID-19, but you never know!

I updated some code (paid for a renewed license for the mod we're using) and looking into it... might take a while.

Whoa! Don't spend money sorting out my crappy stuff!
There's always a link under the player to the full playlist on Soundcloud, anyway!


EDIT: It seems to work in twitter -

Eh, that's one of the more useful mods and one of the handful I'm spending money on; for the most part it works ok so it's worth having it up to date...

So I talked to the developer, it appears it's something that Soundcloud does... maybe it's got to do with account status??

Possibly! It works when shared on Twitter, but I don't think it's the same embedded code.
I haven't heard back from Soundcloud yet, but I wasn't really expecting to!

hey LTronic, i recognize you put a lot of effort in this game as you wrote your own engine for tile scrolling.
Is there a specific reason that you avoided to utilize the easytilemap functionality of cpctelera ?

Hey,


First apologies for the lack of update especially for amazing SuTeKH/Epyetor amazing work on this.
Sorry for the lack of answer man, I feel ashamed.
I've been through personal mess I won't detail here (it's not the place to) and then the covid-19 happened, though times...  :(


I hope to resume work on this, I've got a somehow barely playable build on my GitHub. Anyone interested in can PM me to request access if they want to have a look to.
I'm unsure it's still doable on "old" CPC or I should move to a "plus" range strategy because of memory issues.


I'm not using cpctelera easytilemap stuff because (and this is one of the major problems in this project) is the tilemap is dynamic and can be modified by game items like bomb or megabomb.
If easytilemap supports that maybe I should consider switching to, but I think it's a lot of effort as I basically converted that every original game tile (16x16 px on ST or Amiga) is splitted into 2 tiles on CPC (8x16 px aka two 8x8 px tiles aka two 4x8 bytes). Well, if my memories are good as it's been a while.


Any help/interest is welcome.

Stay safe and talk to you soon.

I'm sure you can still mutate the map data underneath the easytilemap - but you'll still have to do that logic yourself as that engine won't support it.


You've done a lot of work so far, so well worth getting down into it again, if you have time - no need to be ashamed of not having time for any reason.


Do what you can - Plus will give you free scrolling, sprites and better palette, and you can target a cart format (512KB), standard CPC is a bit more difficult but you can still target 128KB (no shame in that, being an Amiga game originally) if that works.
