Re: at67 emulator

I've added some screenshots of features I've added to the Emulator over the past few months that I never really talked about; they can make your development with the Gigatron significantly simpler if used properly. This is great stuff at67, I am continuously surprised by all the features in this em...

Re: PucMon

I had a re-think about how I was drawing the ghosts and managed to save around 1500 bytes by drawing the ghosts skirts as an extra 12x1 sprite draw call, (effectively 9x1 with overlap), instead of the 12x9 whole sprite frame switch I was doing previously. Very clever! It worked well on my Gigatron ...

Re: My Gigatron Build

You can also upload .gt1, .gasm, .vasm and .gtbas files directly to your Gigatron through one of the above Arduino solutions using right click in my emulator. That is really cool at67, I didn't know your emulator could do that! I just tried it and it works if I enter the loader manually on my Gigat...

Re: Parsec - I'm making a game

Great work blaknite! It worked perfectly on my Gigatron (currently running ROMv4), very smooth!

Re: My Gigatron Build

Congrats on your Gigatron build RetroCode, and welcome to the community! Also, random question - where's the best place I should look if I wanted to send a program to the Gigatron? Would I need to use an Arduino? Incidentally, I have tried a few times to search the boards here, but it keeps complain...

Re: PucMon

Thank you klf, at67, alastair, and walter for your guidance! Your responses made me feel a lot more confident about ordering the proper parts. I ended up going with the TL866II, a UV eraser (it was around $20, hopefully it will suffice), a ZIF socket, and a handful of extra EPROMS for keeping differ...

Re: PucMon

I've played it hundreds of times over the last few weeks and haven't got past level 7, so you're doing much better than I am; it's still nowhere near as brutal as the real PacMan though. FWIW, I was never able to get past level 4 in the original Pacman :oops: ...CALLI saved me around 850 bytes of m...

Re: PucMon

I've done as much as I can with the 32K RAM model, here are some links to a video and the .GT1 files for ROMv3 and ROMv5a/DEVROM. ROMv3 plays the same game as ROMv5a but is missing all the sound effects and only has the intro tune for audio. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXiNF7V9IMI ROMv3: PucMon...

Re: PucMon

I'm quite new to Gigatron, but I was able to load .gt1 files via BabelFish and an Arduino Uno last night for the first time. Just wanted to say great work on PucMon, it worked flawlessly on my Gigatron and ran very smooth. I'm very impressed with all the work you've done, especially on gtBASIC and ...
