Re-hacking the 80’s- part 4

<read previous part Unbugging the past In this part I’m going to describe how I removed a ‘feature’ of the game that I consider to be a bug. Backup material But first: Maybe you imaginary readers would like to have the disassembled source I use, so I uploaded the currenty version. I still add comments … Continue reading →

Compulsive overeating disorder

And seeing ghosts as well? You are not well! (I made this cartoon this morning and looking at it now, I find it’s not that obvious the yellow blob is pacman. I tried to edit the picture, but there’s a bug in the loading routine, so this will have to do)

C64 browser plugin test

A while ago  I found a C64 emulator in javascript. I seemed an ideal substitute for the JAC64 browser plugin, because Java in the browser is hard to get working nowadays. I had a lot of trouble getting the javascript module working and performance was not very good under Chrome. It didn’t help that I had trouble … Continue reading →

This will have to do

Experimenting a bit with a spilt screen on my C64 SuperHires viewer. Here’s a cartoon with the standard C64 font. The font is not great. But for now this will have to do.

More progress

Still working on a cross platform super hires C64 drawing program (looking for suggestions to make the description even longer). Drawing works pretty good now, just needs a bit more intelligence. I can export the sprite layer, but must work on the bitmap layer/color layer. When drawing a random line I was reminded of a seventies … Continue reading →

Project progress

A few weeks ago I made a cartoon that was also in C64 format. I’d like to make more in that format. I tried a few programs that were good, but they never quite fitted my way of working. So I decided to make my own drawing tool. I decided on Super Hires format (hires bitmap with … Continue reading →

Inspired by Helsing

Aslan Games made a game for a 4 Hour game jam, inspired by my Helsing’s Hunt. You can play it here. Maybe it’s because the timing is different, but i found this version a lot harder! Overall I liked what they did in four hours (I made my first version in 8 days). Maybe I’ll ask … Continue reading →

new C64 drawing

Because my cartoons are usually quite simple and single color, I figured I could make them for suitable for the Commodore 64 too. Here’s a first try. It’s made with Timanthes on the PC and exported for C64, because how much I still like the C64, I am not going to draw with a joystick … Continue reading →

Zombie choo choo

I made another game for Ludum Dare (I will post more on that later, the game can be found at http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-32/?action=preview&uid=14225). I had some weird inapproriate music to go along with it, which I like. It’s simple. A loop I made with Sid Wizard, a great tracker for the Commodore 64 (http://csdb.dk/release/?id=131846) . I’m still working … Continue reading →

Mssiah test

I bought a Mssiah cartridge recently, so I could use my C64 as a live instrument (with the option of using a midi keyboard). I’ve played around with it a bit and here are to examples: The first one is a test with with the Mssiah mono synthesizer and Mssiah drummer, using a looper. 1st … Continue reading →
