Hi Anima,
Any news on the Falcon version at all? Or what you might have up your sleeve next time?

Thanks,
Paul

Actually the Falcon version needs some more fixing before making it public. Debugging on real hardware is quite time consuming especially when you have to transfer a lot of data for each test from the development machine. So I am thinking about to add the sprite/tile streaming first. However, the overall progress is still slow due to RL things.

I guess you're first testing in Hatari?

Yes. Unfortunately changing the video counter mid screen (raster line interrupts) doesn't work so I need the real hardware. :(

Do you have a PARCP-USB? You can transfer all data files ones and for all and then configure PARCP-USB to transfer and remote execute the binary only. Do that in a script and you can cross-assemble/compile, transfer and execute with a single command on your PC/Linux/OS X environment. That makes it the development process very smooth. If you have a CosmosEx you can configure a shared partition over the network. Works well too, but no remote execution.

No. However, your advice is a good reminder to buy one... ;)

Petr still has some in stock and it's worth every penny!

Hi Anima,
Thanks for the reply, trust me I know all about RL getting in the way of computer stuff!

I would also say, my PARCP-USB is invaluable for getting files across from the PC to the Falcon - recommended.

Cheers,
Paul

Hi Anima,

Are there any updates? I am looking forward to playing the STE version :-)

Sorry for the late reply but the progress is still slow. Even for the Falcon version where the main issues are still the Blitter routines (instruction caching) and the bugs within the original code which lead to bus error exceptions (stack frame fixes for 68030).

Obviously the sunny weather was responsible for the slow progress as well. I hope to find some more time for this in the next days.

No problem Anima. We are patient people. :)

Nice to read that it isn't dead (as the foes it includes) indeed! :D

Hello!

Please, some news about the STE or the Falcon work in progress? :)

Thank you.

No news or answers since 6 months ago... Should we consider the project as dead? :?

I wish people would stop harassing developers for info. Anima has always been upfront and vocal regarding any updates to his projects.

I understand it's exciting to see progress in projects, especially stuff like this, but it's annoying getting emails about threads I'm subscribed to only to find it's another person asking for an update.

Leave the guy alone, I'm sure life is busy and he'll get back to his hobby at some point.

What if Anima does not have anything against asking for info on the progress? Have you consulted him and he wrote you to kindly write here that he wants to stop harrasing him for the info?
I would say that if a developer stopped or paused for some longer time his work, it does not hurt to just write one sentence that the work is paused/stopped. That way all is clear. And if the developer really doesnt want any posts on his work, then the only best way is to work "undercover" :) and give the first public info on the day when he/she releases the production. Cant see anything more clear.

The guy has 3 posts, all of them in this thread and 2 of them are asking for an update.

It looks desperate, makes a mess of the thread and sends unnecessary notifications to people who are subscribed. And I mean this for all threads similar to this.

My point is valid, Anima was always very forth coming with news and updates, he didn't reply in February so maybe people should take that as a sign. He'll no doubt update when he has something meaningful, he always has before.
