Re: XRoar version 0.35 released

No problem.

I'll take a look when I get in tonight, and post my findings.

Re: XRoar version 0.35 released

Hi Pere.

I've noticed audio stutters slightly running v0.35.2 for me.

v0.35.1 and v0.35 seem perfectly fine though so not a problem. :)

Was just curious to compare with v0.35.3.

Re: XRoar version 0.35 released

Has anyone here built XRoar 0.35.3 for Win64?

Audio is playing up a little on my Win10 PC running XRoar 0.35.2 but was fine on the previous two versions.

I'd build the latest version myself but it's a little out of my wheelhouse. :oops:

Re: Flagon Bird

Hi Shock Trooper. Thanks for the suggestion. I managed to bag myself a Dunjunz cassette last Cambridge meet-up from Sixxie himself. I have to say Sixxie did a great job and it did make me think about producing a limited run of my games on cassette and cartridge. I'm planning to update Flagon Bird so...

Re: Joysticks and noise on the sound output

That's interesting Pere. After fine tuning my joystick routine to minimise the potential for `buzz' I found hooking the Dragon up to a TV using RF produced nice clean audio. This would have been my setup as a child which explains why I don't remember background buzz being a problem in the eighties. ...

Re: Joysticks and noise on the sound output

Hi Pere. I went through the same thing trying to eliminate `buzzing' when reading the joystick. As you've discovered it can only be minimised but not stopped altogether. :( Stew was a great help and managed to shed quite a bit of light on what's happening to create the buzzing including why differen...

Re: XRoar alternatives?

I'm always (pleasantly) surprised to discover people still play my Dragon/CoCo port of Flappy Bird from time to time. Like the original it can be pretty frustrating. :D Last Cambridge meet-up Richard Harding suggested making a tweaked version for younger players which was a little easier to control....
