Re: Transnitron Lives - and my mind is blown

Hi and welcome to the forums! It's a shame that they didn't release your game. It's pretty decent and different companies actually often realeased much worse stuff. But it's good news that it survived. We may never learn the story behind it but if I were to make a guess i would say that: - it leaked...

Re: Calling all Graphic Designers

What size? 16x16 pixels or 128x128 pixels makes a big difference in designing process.

Re: 2 Football Homebrew games from the 80s recovered!

Great! It's much more sentimental value than gameplay value I suppose but it's always nice to see such things recovered.

Re: Beginner's ASM Tutorial: Multiplatform Z80 ASM development videos... with vampires!

The CPC wiki has some pretty good documentation on how these work: http://cpcwiki.eu/index.php/CRTC http://cpcwiki.eu/index.php/Gate_Array Well, I suppose it is correct, I suppose it is thorough. But for learning it is terrible. When I opened these links I immediately wanted to run away ;) It's ful...

Re: Beginner's ASM Tutorial: Multiplatform Z80 ASM development videos... with vampires!

I can't do it for Amstrad, can't do it for Sam Coupe, can't do it for MSX, not to mention machines with different CPU...

Re: Installing ZXDB on your local computer

Thanks guys! I succeeded in installing MySql Server and restoring ZXDB. For anybody who would like to follow my path: 1) I decided for XAMPP . The instalation is really easy and the linked Youtube video is helpful. Mostly you click "OK" and "Continue". I probably installed much too much stuff for my...
