Applications / Re: Arkos Tracker 2 - Released!
« Last post by skylas on Today at 00:32 »
No, the stop doesn't do anything but stop the sound. It doesn't need to do anything else, because there is the init function if you want to start/restart.

I'm pretty sure what I said will work. Simple call the stop, and then the play (WITHOUT calling the init method on restart) whenever you're ready.
Thank you all for your answers!
So, in an example while the song is being played):
call player+3:load"1.scr":call player,music, 0  .   
 But this seems to restart the song, maybe I didnt understand well something

Thanks - that's a good tip. I'm going to replace a few of the capacitors around the amplifier as a first step

Just found a game I converted back in november 2020, must have forgot about it. :doh:
Rock'N Roller

Joypad 1 Button 2 to pause, any to unpause.

CHEAT MODE (Infinite Lives):
Wait for the game demo to start, at this time hold UP on joypad 1, only release it when you see the credits and blue screen appear in the design.

Demos / Re: Revision 2021 demo: Can Robots Take Control?

You can find the final version here: https://files.scene.org/view/parties/2021/revision21/oldskool-demo/crtc_final.zip

There are not much changes:
- sound and/or crtc transition glitches depending on your CPC version are still there
- greetings logo has been updated
- one logo screen has a palette change

However, we have made some modifications regarding the disk support
- better synchronization with the music for fast drives
- fewer crashes when loading
- 3"5 disc only uses one side; you can still use the one of our previous demos ;)
- 3" disc version has been added; you can then watch the demo on a bare CPC ! WARNING there is no turn disc support. You have to manually flip the disc during the rotating 3d scene and during the display of the very last logo
- m4-cpcwifi version has been added;  there are two limitations: there is a sound glitch when loading files, the demo does not loop

@Optimus it should solve your issues

There are diodes behind the joystick ports to stop this, probably one of them has failed.
