Re: Different versions of Zarch?

Looks freaking amazing! Very strange for me because I was wondering last night if anyone would ever attempt to enhance and optimise Zarch - and today I found out they have. How many fps' does it run at on an A3010? Seriously thinking about buying an Archie again now. I'm sure you've also read the t...

Even better sound for the Archies ...

I'd like to mod another machine like an A3000, with another operational amplifier.

Which one would be an even better choice than the OPA4134PA Burr Brown OPA ?

Thanks for your help.

There are more qualified people to answer but with my Archies and RPCs, I don't absolutely try to get a motherboard 'ultraclean' : as long as the vinegar has been poured on and let working for a dozen minutes, to me it's enough.

Re: Sprite routines in MODE 13 - how did YOU do it?

The runtime cost of generating/compiling a sprite is next to nothing : see in my videos : I plot 4 consecutive white pixels, each time I have generated the ARM code for one segment (not line : segment), so even if you've got a big sprite with long segments of pixels on a given line pertaining to the...
