Further developments:
Ryan marked it as a duplicate, but my bug is still present.

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. (it will crash if you trigger an unimplemented gameplay feature) I found a crash on ...

Re: Runen (1996)

I tried the game. Lots of things to write about... General: The game is quite slow-paced (especially when climbing), so in DOSBox, you should configure a single key to the fast-forward function. The default Alt+F12 is quite hard to press while playing, and if you press Alt while running, the "prince...

David, I guess maybe put all the "Runen (1996)" related posts in a separate thread?
Done.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VyhmbEjs9A I like what he says at 2:03-2:13: It used to be the privilege of computer graphics researchers to play video games during work hours. But apparently, scientists in machine learning also caught up in this regard. Way to go! :) From the paper : To our knowl...

Re: Level 6 Secret Passage?

@printsofpersia: You can try this yourself with this level editor: https://www.popot.org/level_editors.php?editor=Pr1SnesLevEd There are similar level designs on level 9 (before the shadow), on level 11 (the first pit you meet), and on level 12. The one on level 9 is a bit different, though: it goes...

Re: Forum spam

It looks like it's also possible to ban by hostname. To specify several different IPs or hostnames enter each on a new line. To specify a range of IP addresses separate the start and end with a hyphen (-), to specify a wildcard use “*”. I tried to ban node-*-*-*-*.alliancebroadband.in because the IP...

Re: PoP videos / images

Sword fighting is supposedly by "E. Matskevich". Mentioned here and here , among other places. The (other) black and white drawings are by Kozlik Mozlik a.k.a. Сергей Козлов. Are these all illustrations or covers of the "Prince of Central Planning" novel? ~~~ PoP also at about 0:29 in this YT video...

Re: Forum spam

Assuming the spammers have a finite number of IP addresses, maybe this forum becomes a less interesting target if they see IP addresses are being banned. The question is, do they see that their IP address is banned? They register a new account from a new IP address for every post. They might also b...

Re: Forum spam

(I moved the spam post to the Trash and Norbert's post to this new topic.) Unless you ban these by IP address, they'll keep coming. The problem with banning by IP address is that each account uses a different IP address. Even the first octets are different. (45 vs. 144 vs. 117) The only common thing...

Lots of news about the SNES Classic that recently launched. While PoP isn't one of the 21 built-in games, some of the others are interesting. Here is the list of the 21 games: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_NES_Classic_Edition#Games (It's actually 16 + 5, where the 5 are different between the ...

Created something similar on popot.org:
https://www.popot.org/chomper_dance.php
Of course, Jakim is credited (lower right).
I like how the chomping fits into the beat of the music. :)

Did you do this because Jakim recently returned to the forum?
