As we discussed the issue is with me using an out of date version of vX0 gtbasic and emulator

I will redo these tests once I obtain an update.

Thank you

Manic Miner played in mode 3 with video repeater. Great experience!
I still have to learn how to jump over penguins and turkeys … ;)

I am porting Pitfall to the Gigatron while I take a short break from documenting gtBasic vX0. I have all 255 screens done and am working on the mechanics of character and sprites now. I think it will be finished within 2 weeks.

Looks pretty awesome. write a custom line routine for the vines, (very simple one that saves background pixels and then restores them).

I was going to do Pitfall as my next project, but I'll move onto River Raid.

Just working on the line routine at this moment. It is the last graphic routine I need to code except the main character running, jumping and climbing ladders and ropes

What algorithm did you use to draw a line between 2 points ?
I can use the same to save the background points

Sorted. Made my own line drawing routine and saved the x, y and colour table of the background to draw back the original image. Works great
