Could they have chosen orange, or brown, instead of magenta?

And should they have?!
All the available browns had been used up by the C64.

Re: Finding LSB in a register

Seems to almost do what it needs to. The only thing left that I should've mentioned before is that it needs to RESet the LSB in HL (the data register). So whereas maybe HL=05c0h, after creating the mask, bit 6 of L needs to be cleared, giving the result HL=0580h. Does that make sense? This any good...

No loops:
ld bc,hl
dec bc
ld a,h
xor 255
and b
ld b,a
ld a,l
xor 255
and c
ld c,a
Just uses HL & BC
ld bc,hl isn't a valid z80 instruction

Re: divIDE Fuse Tutorial

Nice guide! I'd just like to point out that you should save a snapshot once you have it all working, so that you don't have to 'reflash' the emulated DivIDE flash memory each time you run Fuse.

Re: Exomizer 2.0.10

Is your code returning to BASIC? If it is, you'll need to push IY to the stack beforehand and pop it back afterwards.

Re: Exomizer 2.0.10

Hi, I am having similar issues with exomizer. I have tried both versions of the decruncher that come with the main zip and both just don't decompress properly, fill the screen with garbage and then reset. I am passing the compressed data to HL and target memory to DE and calling the deexo function....

Re: Vortex Tracker help

I know this doesn't answer your question, but have you tried Arkos Tracker 2?

But at least it's now 3 bytes smaller AND 5 t-states faster!
