Re: Boray Gammon (Now V2.0)

I think the plus/4 version maybe turned out to be the best one. With extra shades of red on the board and maybe a little better sounds than in the c64 version.

Re: Boray Gammon (Now V2.0)

Now also for the Plus/4: This version is available for the C64 and the Plus/4 (or other 264-series computers with at least 32K of RAM). New AI-player, "Uncle Ted", who is a composite player. It's actually Clever Vic, Sid the Kid and Reckless Ray taking turns. Now possible to choose between...

Re: Boray Gammon (Now V2.0)

There is now a C64 version as well: http://www.boray.se/commodore/gammon/ The program was ported to the C64 in 2017 and also a bit improved upon. I tried to improve the AI, but in the end, the old "Clever Vic" wins more. I decided to add the new AI anyway as another opponent to choose from...

Re: VIC Game Club No. 11 – Paddle Games

My two paddle favorites are The Sky is Falling and Clowns.

Omega Race is one of my top favorite games ever, but not played with paddles.

Re: VIC Game Club No. 9 – Arcade Racers

I liked Road Race as a kid, especially the graphics for the instrumentation and driving with gears.

Re: BasEdit.NET

You are better off using mono directly to run .net applications in Linux. You need to install specific packages for visual basic support in mono.

Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

Tried the latest demo. Very nice, but there was a bug. On first track, I got multiple balls, but maybe I just saw two. When all balls were lost the game just continued so I couldn't continue. Maybe two balls were traveling at exactly the same position or something. I resetted reloaded and played aga...

Re: Complete VICE Newbie needs help

When buying SD2IEC here, you can choose to take power from the user port instead of the tape port, and it will work with the plus/4 as well: https://www.thefuturewas8bit.com/index.php/shop/commodore.html I guess that would be the best for most people anyway. There are plenty of tape drives around, b...

Re: My 2-prong DC PSU experiments

Thanks for all the interesting info in this thread! I tried a 9v AC 30 watts transformer to get my 2 prong Vic working but was not satisfied with the result on my old Vic. The screen showes dark horizontal parts on the screen. These dark parts slowly move in a vertical direction. Found this thread ...

Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

I think selling the game probably would be a copyright issue as it's so close to the original. There is no way to patent a game idea, but the graphics, patterns/tracks and music is most likely the property of Taito.

Re: Image display on non CRT

LCD TVs provide a far more stable picture, especially for PAL there 50 Hz CRTs were flickering quite a bit.
