Re: Apple II port to BBC Master computer

Ah, the branches. I use them differently: I eventually merge every branch into master. Yes, that's what you're supposed to do really but each of my explorations started out tentative before becoming a bit more permanent. I'm using them as labels which is basically all they are in Git anyway. I will...

Re: What is the best version? What are the diffrences?

I looked at the results of my earlier accuracy tests: http://forum.princed.org/viewtopic.php?p=14140#p14140 Maybe it was easier to port the C source of the DOS version to computers than to consoles? I just tried this test on my BBC Master version and, although it's hard to pull off the move, it see...

Re: Apple II port to BBC Master computer

Okay, no need to hurry. :) Hiya David. Thanks for all the feedback. I was on vacation for a couple of weeks so only just got back to looking at PoP. So is the crash an assertion failure? Yes, the nice thing about the way the original Apple II code is structured is the jump table interface between a...

Re: Apple II port to BBC Master computer

Ah, another new PoP port for old hardware! (after the Commodore 64 version) I tried this. It plays like the original except for the flickers. I guess you already know, but the hit points are missing from the screen. Hi David, thanks for trying it out and taking time to post. I am currently working ...

Re: Apple II port to BBC Master computer

Hey kieranhj. BBC Master, so obscure. :) Good luck completing the game. Quite a project. It's too bad that that emulator stops when switching away from its tab. Because it means players are forced to wait for all the disk drive 'nonsense'. Hm, "]" seems to be up-right for me. It would be nice if pl...

Apple II port to BBC Master computer

Hey folks, I thought I would join your lovely forum and introduce myself. For the last six months or so I have been porting the original Apple II 6502 source & sprites to the BBC Master computer. For those of you outside of the UK, the BBC Micro computer series was created by Acorn in the early 1980...
