Re: Using the new features

Using the new features

I'm writing a new game for the Spectrum in MC and have left some space spare for use with the Nexts new features. I have set the background to INK 0, PAPER 0, BRIGHT 0 (0) and want this to be transparent to allow layer 2 to be visible. I also want INK 0, PAPER 0, BRIGHT 1 (65) to be transparent as w...

Does ZEsarUX have its own assembler?

Using hardware sprites

What do you do to print a hardware sprite on the next?

I'm currently printing tiles using a routine, how do I replace this with hardware sprites?

I am under the impression the whole hardware sprite thing is just a series of OUT commands, is that right?

@Sokurah

Interesting point.

Must it use the new features (hardware sprites, SID sound etc.) not available on a standard Spectrum to be classed as a 'Next' game?

This game plays differently on a Next compared to a standard Speccy.

New Game: Pooper Scooper

Avoid the baddies, clean up the crap, different characters have different abilities that need to be employed to complete the levels. Keys QAOP and space, H to hold, M for music on/off.

Re: Did you miss the Kickstarter? Would you still want a Next? Now you can!

Missed the kickstarter and now missed the shop.

Will it be available again or am I looking at going to rip-off ebay merchants?

Layer 2 BMP data

Where does the data for the layer 2 reside?

I presume it must be on a directory on SD?

If thats the case gamers could just browse the SD folder and check out what later levels contain, a bit of a spoiler in other words.

As you know I'm in for one and willing to pay slightly more if it will arrive within a month instead of the current 8 month timescale.
How much is "slightly more"?
