Re: Dragon demos for download?

Not sure about this demo being available on a ".vdk", but here is a link to a YT video:

Re: help 64k disk

Hello, I think it is still possible to directly address the WD2797 chip after disabling DOS on a Dragon computer. I seem to remember a friend of mine creating such routines back then, so he could load pieces of code that would require the whole RAM, including the DOS memory pages. He might have done...

Re: FOGGY converted from ZX-Spectrum to 6809

A nice job, for sure! But I still prefer the PMode4 display, that is much easier to "read". There are not so many games that look great under PMode3 ("Lunar Rover Patrol" being a notable exception).

Re: Adventure/RPG game on disk

Hello, and welcome! If that game was in French, then it's likely it was either "Graal Quest" or its sequel, "Creator Quest". I intended to create an English translation (both games play in French), but never actually found enough time to do so. These games are D&D-inspired: First, you have to genera...

SourceMaker (PammComms)

Hello everyone,

I found the tape dump of this nice utility in the archive, but not the disk version. Did I miss anything or is it really missing? In the latter case, I will gladly provide the disk dump (".vdk") created from my own original, some years ago.

Re: why did the dragon only use green in most of its games?

PMode3 games using a buff background looked rather awful most of the time ("Junior's Revenge" for instance). There is an exception, though. Not sure about the actual title, but it might be "Cosmic Crusader" (the 3D shooter featuring waves of ant-like aliens). The main screen is very readable and it ...

Re: Juxtaposition - CoCo and/or NTSC

... Great idea! and such a nice game, too.

To anyone who enjoyed/enjoys/will enjoy playing it, I can onbly recommend reading the trilogy of novels that it was loosely based on, ie. the "Blue Adept" trilogy by Piers Anthony (Blue Adept / Split Infinity / Juxtaposition).

Re: Music software for the dragon?

Hello,

I'm not sure Microdeal's "The Dragon Composer" could be what you're looking for, but I would still suggest checking that one first. I believe the original documentation will be available.
