Re: New ZX81 Games

Really nice and smooth and fun, but the white border in non-Chroma mode looks very strange when you've painted the side passages. (It also might be better to use down rather than up to enter your name, because with 2 for up it invariably insta-starts a new game with 2, which gives you the cursor key...

Re: New translation: Stock-Car

So here's a version with the highscore code lines in, and line 1000 changed from CLEAR to PRINT. If I print PEEK 21212 it's still 5, which is what I get from the working version, but when the race starts I get a 2/8010 error. (Line 8010 is a simple NEXT Y.) So it looks like that's not the solution :...

Re: New translation: Stock-Car

Another thought, you could prune some bytes from above line 1500, maybe use a VAL here and there then add your GOTO line just make sure line 1500 starts at 21,212. Use PEEK 21212 to track your pruning. It should match before and after pruning. I'd already thought that, eg I tried replacing the prob...

I figured, but it's a bit rubbish not to be able to go back down the exact same ladder you just went up. Did it catch fire or something? :lol:

Re: New translation: Stock-Car

There's only one thing left stumping me. To express all the above more simply: the version of the game attached to that post works perfectly. However, if you add just one line to it: 460 GOTO 8800 then it will crash at the start of the race with a C/7196 error, even if line 8800 is just 8800 GOTO 4...

Re: New translation: Stock-Car

:lol: "Vitesse"="Gear" ("boîte de vitesse"= gearbox) You are of course correct, but here in the UK the two words are interchangeable in the context of gears - that's why we talk about a "10-speed" bicycle or a car with a "six-speed" gearbox :D https://www.gearboxspecialistsbournemouth.co.uk/whats-t...

Re: New translation: Stock-Car

Here's the version with those POKEs applied. Stock-Car (EN V2).p There's only one thing left stumping me. I tried to improve the game by adding a high score, displayed on the instructions screen. It only took a few lines of code, seen here (NH is New Hiscore): nhi.jpg We set up BM and BS (best minut...

New translation: Stock-Car

This is a great little racer by Informatique Service with a bit of a Monaco GP vibe, most notably in the latter section where you're in a tunnel and sometimes have only your headlights illuminating the track ahead of you. stockcar-230912-123715.png stockcar-230912-124141.png It was a bit of a bugger...

Re: ARENA an Old/New game

I like it, although it's a bit harsh when antimatter debris gets dumped in the square right next to the centre so you can't do anything about a shot from that direction. Also not quite sure what the point of the "moles" is. It reminds me on a superficial level of Space Zap, which I was always surpri...
