Re: Aznar, the Sport Star

Aznar just managed around 28 seconds in a swim, so I think he's nearly ready to compete (the blood transfusion and Georgian anabolics really helped). This is very impressive for BASIC. Because I've been concentrating on the power bars, I haven't thought much yet about how you're giving the effect of...

Re: phpBB upgrade

I saw some of this happening - it was terrifying! Thanks for trying Peter. That's a horrible job (and I have to admit that I'm not envious of it).

Re: Aznar, the Sport Star

About your qualifications, these are not so bad, but be honest... Are you trying to compete before training enough...? Probably, but I said "so far". The swim and 800m times are from training, because I crash out of the competition due to being rubbish at swimming. Are the gold medal times your own...

Re: Aznar, the Sport Star

This is great fun! And BASIC too, top stuff ivan! I love the idea of fine tuning the cadence, rather than outright button hammering. The stopping for air during the swim, and pacing yourself to avoid cramp in the 800m are great additions. Here's a summary of the instructions: -use 1 and 0 to scroll ...

The No brek h tel could do with a bit of TLC inside and out. The oldest computer on show was probably 20 years younger than the decor.

I was there. Quite fun, although I spend most of my time trying to get on arcades. Top 2 are currently:

Yeah same here. I was itching to try Rally-X but it was always bloody busy.

Re: Little bugs in the database 2

There's a new bug though (in ZXDB) regarding Line. These two entries need merging: https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=96&id=35092 https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=96&id=34339 Erm, has the above merge gone wrong? When I look up the ZXDB entry for Line now I get a load of brok...

Re: Short beeper routines in assembly

OK. My understanding is that you have issues with too much noise while replaying sampled speech. Is that correct ? No—I meant that I couldn't do it at all. I wondered if the code was already out there online to save me time. See also: http://randomflux.info/1bit/viewtopic.php?id=21 Brilliant link. ...

Re: Short beeper routines in assembly

What exactly are you trying to do ? It's something for Woot. Ultra top secret. For example, I have tried to diassemply effects in Starquake and firelord and I never got even rough idea how it works. I couldn't unravel these either. It's interesting that some of the most elaborate sounds have a simp...
