Re: Using the Wordpak2+ on the Dragon

just an update on the Foggy's screen. I have entered the page for this game on Rucksack Games and have been tweaking the colours on the palette used in the program and have been changing a bit some tile colour combinations when needed. In the end I got a result that is almost a copy of the original ...

Re: Using the Wordpak2+ on the Dragon

Hi John, big thanks for sharing these videos, good work! V0 and V1 works same on my setup. V2 in mine does the same than V0 but using interrupts, while V0 uses a V9958 function Maybe something went wrong when I copied V2 to the VDK file ... anyway, it doesn't matter as the point was to confirm that ...

Re: Using the Wordpak2+ on the Dragon

Looks nice! Are you able to update the display fast enough to make something playable? Hello Ciaran, The screen is in fact a background and is drawn in a millisecond The movement is still unknown to me. I need to learn how do the sprites work in this graphic mode ... Of course the idea is ... AGD g...

Re: Using the Wordpak2+ on the Dragon

@dublevay Hello John, Have you had the time to test any of the three images 'mixer' programs I uploaded here? It would be interesting to know how they work on your setup that seems to be quite like mine. Once known the result we could decide if we should go for an upscaler module ... Thanks in advan...

I will be looking for schematics that help getting both synchro pulses (VSync and HSync) out of the Composite Sync that Wordpak2...

Re: Using the Wordpak2+ on the Dragon

After a lot more tests with a friend from Retrowiki who knows far better the MSX2, the result keeps
being awful. No matter how we do the page changes, the V9958 decides to show both images interleaved :-(
Attached is a video showing the testing program
cheers
