Re: The perfect fall/jump

If we were to use the laws of physics, we would probably eschew a jump table. Instead, we would give the sprite an initial vertical velocity (henceforth known as u ). At any instant in time during the jump, the velocity of the sprite can be calculated as v = u + at where v is the velocity at time t...

If one would turn off the music & sound effects, use all shortcuts, no safe strats and optimal movement I think it would be possible to get pretty close to 2 minutes.

Wow! Grats mate! :D Is everything (sans the logic) inside that 512?

Re: 3D Construction Kit games...

You may be interested in the 3D Construction Kit website which covers the initial 8-bit version of the software and the later 16-bit release. http://www.3dconstructionkit.co.uk/ Lots of interest there. Especially Mandy's fanzines which were the official user group publications. Thanks for the link!

Re: ZX Larry (Leisure Suit Larry remake)

One advantage of having a char-based cursor is that it's much quicker to fully 'explore' the screen, never liked point and click games where you had to 'hunt' pixels to make progress. I tried R-Tape's speed mod and it feels spot on to me. Also it would be nice being able to cancel using the joystick...
