Jay Gets a Macbook

24th January 2021

There's a setting on mine (not sure if it is Window 10 or specific to this keyboard) to ignore palm touches and it works.

I can switch off 'taps' to click which was a right pain. I just wish I could switch off single finger touches and only*snip*

Trackpads are a right pain in the palm for sure! I usually disable mine, although the one on the Surface is identical to apples. You can dull it down and disable the tap to click/select (it also does not have buttons, but you can physically click the whole*snip*

Star Trek Discovery - Season Three

10th January 2021

I've enjoyed all three. They are not perfect, and I know they rubbed some people up in completely the wrong way but it is Star Trek and for me it was done well.

Your Unfinished Megagame

10th January 2021

Nemesis - entered into a competition, 99.9% done. I did the graphics, Stu on coding and we had some epic music. Just needed some tweaking, bit of balancing etc. Unfortunately, despite wanting, it did not happen.

New Year Resolutions - 2021

4th January 2021

I don't do resolutions as such, but I would like to lose a bit of weight (a theme here hehe). I lost 3 stone between Nov 2019 and Jan 2020, then put on 9 pounds this year (thanks to some fantastic home cooked meals and cakes - too many cakes) so I'*snip*

16th December 2020

That's fair enough. I couldn't / didn't want to go fully Mac so Parallels slotted in nicely. Partly because some things I wanted to use were Windows only but also some replacements just felt like compromises, too many 'apps' back then w*snip*

16th December 2020

I haven't booted my Macbook for a long while, but I did use it for a time and got used to it. Some things I liked quite a lot, others were frustrating by their restriveness. However, I did get used to it. The worst was when I first got it, OSX at that *snip*

Star Trek Discovery - Season Three

22nd October 2020

Have to say I’ve enjoyed them all. Each a bit different. Voyager is my favourite though, getting close to the end of my third rewatch. Catching up to how many times I’ve been through Stargate sg1 :-p

Amstrad CPC support (and zx spectrum, Atari ST and others) in Turbo Rascal

27th August 2020

Oh I seem to be a bit ahead, the latest zip does not yet include the Amstrad stuff yet, but I can build a version for anyone interested. Or you can install QT and stuff and build the latest from github ...

Leave it with me, I will post a link to a windo*snip*

I’ll let him know. Can get to it on github here, there should be a link to the latest release in a zip so you don’t have to worry about building it.

Amstrad CPC support (and zx spectrum, Atari ST and others) in Turbo Rascal

27th August 2020

You may or may not know that I contribute to Turbo Rascal, particularly the Vic 20 side but not exclusively.

Turbo Rascal is a development environment that runs on Windows, Linux and Mac, to create predominantly 8-bit but also 16-bit software.

Well*snip*

I Suck At Design - 2020!

8th June 2020

White space. Margin: 10px (or so) for content containers and between columns will make an instant world of difference. Spacing in button areas would need playing with to find what is right.

Personally, I like to use things like Bootstrap or equivalent*snip*

Found the culprit.

I'm using SPANIM to animate the sprite frames. SPANIM 1, ''I'', 3,2, 3,3, 3,4, 0 ' delay 3 for each frame, displaying frames 2,3,4 and looping infinitely.

I know SPANIM can be used to animate positions, scale, rota*snip*

Hmmm ok, The mask is simply another filter to include or exclude a collision check. $H10000000 and $HF0000000 masks on different objects will cause a collision. $H10000000 and $H00F00000 will not. The two numbers bits are AND'd together and if the *snip*

Have you used SPCOL and SPHITSP? Seems to have problems, possibly.

If I use SPHOME to set the centre of the sprites, the SPHITSP does not take this into account.

I was hoping collisions would be pixel perfect but it is rectangular overlapping. Ther*snip*

I have made some progress. Better stop for lunch. I have a spaceship zooming around the screen with a inertia style movement (like asteroids) and bouncing off the screen edges.

Thanks. Very helpful, bear in mind I will make weird mistakes or just not get something that is obvious once you know - so appreciate the help (and patience) :)
