I made also a load of games on the Aari 800XL (never spread they really then, no internet
Using turbo ? Basic I believe, a very powerfull basic on the XL/XE serie with compiler.
I enjoy making games on the Falcon using GFA basic, and yes with the Falcon powerfull processor and the blitter
you can also make action games !!! Running in 1 VBL (Sync). But even in 2 VBL they are still quite good ( example Roxx
on the STE) I also made several demo's in GFA
For tracker music or chip sounds you caninline ASM code, but they are easy to get hold off and you don't have to
know ASM. Most of the come with a small piece of code thjat you can copy into your listing....
So the only thing now is: What where you thinking of making ???
At the moment, never used turbo basic...but i know this is very powerful.
In the 1988/89 i used Atari basic only (see my two old games), and them are not compiled.
Beautiful graphics, but very very slooowwww!!
About Gfa Basic on Falcon (STe too) i would like to makes some game a/o demo, just to enjoy.
Well, i know the VBL word (Vertical Blank, i think), but your phrase "running in 1 / 2 VBL" is too for me!
Anyway, is intersting that i can to copy small piece of code in my listing..yes, that's a good idea.
I love "cartoon graphic", so my first approach will be makes little pieces of code about that (both Falcon and STe).
Also, i love "digital music" and i would utilize the STe and Falc hardware.
I would...(i hope my child let me works)
