Re: XeO3 level ported to Next (emulator)

Mike, have you managed to implement support for layer 2 in your emulator according to the bits and pieces of the layer 2 spec that have slipped out so far?

Would it be possible to test your emulator? Where can it be downloaded?

Re: Z88DK C+Z80 Development Tools

I just want to say that this thread (and the whole forum) is great! A real source of information and a friendly atmosphere. I'm happy to read that the Next target in z88dk will have both Timex and layer 2 support in the sp1 software sprite library. I guess that this could be used for animating parts...

C API for Next hardware sprites

I have been playing around with the Next hardware sprites in C for a while. As part of this exercise I created a C API for using the Next hardware sprites as specified at http://www.specnext.com/sprites/ . This API is a thin wrapper on top of the I/O port interface of the Next hardware sprites. I ha...

Re: WIP - Walkabout (z88dk)

Hi, I have created a C API wrapper for calling the Vortex Tracker II (VT) player and adapted it to the z80asm assembler syntax in z88dk. See my last comment in this thread at the z88dk forums: https://www.z88dk.org/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=14675#p14675 The z80asm-adapted VT player and the C API wrapp...
