A new way to code Coleco games!

For awhile I've been tinkering with their IDE as it covered other systems, like the Atari 2600 and some of the arcade systems from the early 80's, but they just recently added support for MSX, Sega Master System and Coleco programming. Awesome stuff!

Re: Coding on the CV

I gotta say, that's a pretty epic reply :)

Someday (I keep telling myself that so I don't commit harikari) I'm gonna sit down and get back to programming... this will help a lot!

Re: Turbo Pascal 3 bitmap graphics extensions

Definitely need to try this out. Are you open to making sound and controller modules, too?

Re: Turbo Pascal issue under CP/M

Oh, it was unreleased, just more of a refresher exercise for myself. It was called Rock! Paper! Scissors! Fight!, so of course it was a twitch game for two players, basically just rock paper scissors but with an arcade flair. I wrote it in BlitzMax, which is a compiled BASIC language. I got about 85...

Re: Turbo Pascal issue under CP/M

Fully? No, I tend to not use the block commands, just basic navigation. Honestly its been almost two years since I touched it (about the time I started my business... if I'm not there, I'm here doing paperwork, etc.). I'm really hoping to ease up on the at-home stuff so I can get back to some recrea...

Re: Assembly with Turbo Pascal 3

I would suspect that TP3 for DOS had a lot more going for it than CP/M (TP3 was the last version Borland made for it). You are right, there is a ton of documentation for MS-DOS, little for CP/M. I don't have proof, but I think that TP3 for MS-DOS outsold the CP/M edition by a pretty wide margin. As ...

Re: Turbo Pascal issue under CP/M

I don't have a floppy drive on mine, so I can't recreate. I don't remember having an issue with the DDP that Milli made me. Maybe if you had a DDP version of TP3, copy the (working) files onto the disk? I don't know...just thinking out loud.

Re: HDMI for the Adam

Sounds like a worthy project. I've always thought that the RPi is a perfect companion for most classic computers. If the software was there, it could be a wifi modem, SD card reader, USB printer interface, USB keyboard interface, joystick interface... and so on. 80 columns? Sure, why not. It could t...
