Great intro Wayne. I knew you had good c64 skills already. Haven’t been around much, but I am getting some time and the urge to code myself. Good to see you still releasing and refine your skills. Nice!

It was a “bucket list” thing to finish a crack (and intro) on c64 – glad it’s finally finished πŸ™‚ Thanks M9 for the fast conversion.

great work, lovely design. did you have to “learn” 6502, or did that just come fairly natural as you know many other systems?

It was fairly easy to learn the basics (there are only 3 registers after all!), but I don’t do anything fancy in terms of hardware tricks here – it’s all quite basic stuff. Maybe next time… πŸ™‚

Really nice work. Are you drawing the scroller dots with the CPU and OR’ing (emulating the Blitter), or in some other way?

Watch the top-left dot of the scroller (or any other you can easily focus on), and you’ll see how quickly the sine-movement repeats. It’s almost as if there are only 16 frames of animation…

Pretty impressive for the C64 to do that scroller, something similar on Amiga with 8×8 plotted dots would probably be wasteful to get the blitter to do it, and quite processor intensive for the CPU alone. Having never tried it, will have to investigate.

Having investigated it, its a piece of piss for the Amiga to do, only need blitter to clear screen for replot, still looks effective on the C64 though.

This intro is in a mode where the screen is tiled (40×25 8×8 tiles, from a choice of 256 total tiles). So I just use 16 tiles for a pre-calculated dot moving in a sine motion, and update the screen map accordingly every frame – the scrolling text is actually just changing the palette entry to yellow where a pixel occurs in the scrollbuffer.

Actually the whole intro is easier to do on the c64 than it would be on Amiga πŸ™‚

Youre right, I just wrote it for Amiga last night and ive got some optimizing to do, still a surprisingly easy effect that looks great.

Just need to use a 6 pixel high font now to match yours πŸ™‚

I did it on Amiga a while ago (turns out, June 2015!), but that wasn’t really finished when M9 wanted to use it and I don’t think it looks as good as the C64 version honestly… looking forward to seeing yours πŸ˜›
