Re: Beehive - a Mega Drive tile and map editor

Hi! Yes, I encountered the middle mouse button issue myself when I tried using a touchpad! I'll make it so CTRL+LEFT CLICK pans, like Maya. BMPs need to be 16 colour, I'll be integrating a proper image loading library into it at some point. Collision gets exported as its own tileset and map, similar...

Re: EchoMML (MML for Echo)

This brings back warm memories. I had a C64 program that parsed MML, spent weeks messing around with it.

What does this do with volume/pitch slides? Does it bake new notes into the output?

Re: Tanglewood - now on Kickstarter!

Excellent news, Matt. I am glad that you stuck to it. Only sorry that we did not get you UMDK to use in good time. Best of luck with it and I hope you reach the Kickstart Goal. Cheers. Thank you :) I'm still interested in a UMDK the second someone starts manufacturing again! And hopefully if this t...

Tanglewood - now on Kickstarter!

Hello lovely homebrew community! As you may already know, since starting my journey learning 68000 ASM and collecting dev hardware, I've been working on Tanglewood - a dark 2D platformer-with-puzzles - and recently completed a major milestone and released a tech demo. I'd like to see my game through...

Re: Fastest way to clear memory

Educated guesswork: clearing all regs and using movem would theoretically be the fastest method. As usual, though, I get dubious about questions like this: why? I wrote a MemClear routine once, it gets called during init, never looked back. Clearing VRAM is where it gets interesting. DMA fill/copy l...

Re: 68000 instruction timing from source?

I'm going to start with a simple Exodus plugin - I already have a SNASM68K COFF reader for it so I can match addresses to source, so this makes sense. I'll just make it dump out accumulative cost per instruction in CSV format for now and go from there.

Re: 68000 instruction timing from source?

I'll get busy then! Static analysis isn't properly representative, of course, but it's a useful first pass and can be used for comparison of small sections of code during an optimisation refactor, rather than the whole picture at runtime. Examples of instruction-counted code is a hot topic on this f...
