Re: Hack & Slash

This past year, I've been picking up on Node.js and TypeScript. That lead me to begin a legacy C port of Hack & Slash using TypeScript. While it's still alpha, it's far enough along that it caught the attention of a few Amiga BBS sysops -- telling me their story, encouraging me to finish the wor...

Re: Introducing NinjaTerm 2.0

Does VICE allow for RS232 via TCP emulation? Have you tried it with NinjaTerm running on xvic? I've tried running DesTerm after running x128 -rsuser -rsdev1 192.168.1.254:23 to connect to a telnet service running on a local Linux box. I can see the TCP established connection on the Linux-side, with ...

Re: VIC Game Club No. 6 – Omegas

Cool "game club" thread. If you beat any of the posted high scores in the Wiki, do be sure to put them in -- gives me something to shoot for. You'd think I'd have a better hand and anticipation having innate knowledge of the underlying programming to post ludicrous scores. Haha, that's whe...

Re: VIC Game Club No. 5 – Berzerk MMX / MMX+

MMX seems more difficult than some other versions because Evil Otto shows up so soon. One day I'll have to sit down and compare all of them at once... Evil Otto's appearance is a result of the level and the number of robots spawned. And he goes berzerk if 2 or less robots remain on the level. Somet...
