Hawk I am an Atari 8 bit guy, too 🙂 I've got a stack of them next to me right now...getting ready to go to storage for a while. I'm going to keep a 1200XL, 800XL, 130XE, and a 600XL here, however. I've got some goodies to go in the 600XL...most all of the "high end" stuff, except for a VBXE - which will have to wait a little while. What interests me most is the PokeyMAX V3 that I have. It eludes me as to which configuration it was programmed for (dual POKEY, COVOX, and ??)
I finally pulled the SBC out of the Tauon keyboard assembly (one of the USB ports is defective). A $5 generic USB hub rectified the problems that it gave me. I've not had any luck with the only two DVI enabled monitors I have access to at the moment (one is a Dell 2007FP and a Dell something or another). Was really hoping it would work with the Dell 2007! The split screen with a BASIC Engine NG and an original BASIC Engine via composite would be cool.
@Hawk and @davegardnerisme SCREEN 14 is what I really like to use, too, and since I know that some others dig it, that will be the resolution of the couple of games I'm plugging away at.
I started a sprite and/or tile tool a few weeks back, but it will have to run at SCREEN 15 as a minimum - at least the way that it is laid out now
Edit: @Hawk Even though I should be MUCH better with Linux, Unix, etc. than I am, considering that everything I started on from the late 70s through the late 80s were command line based...I am worthless on them 🙁 I fired up an Ubuntu virtual machine, but am not certain of all the steps required to get the SDL version going. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
