Im is not sure about the idea between tune and cpu was the case of the stutter really, have newer understand its the reason for the stutter? there is both tune and sfx played same time, which is also the reason for the stutter as well.

howover im can see in the remixes im have done (like the above one), the "beeper" note was trigged each 4 frames in a speed of about 50 frames of second. with that in mind, two notes per 4 times (one  for tune, game logic, other for sfx, game logic), then the framerate would been 25fps for game logic (and graphics update). this if the cpu would have wait for the notes to been played finished. But its a slow paced game anyway.

So its actuelly possible wiki has right, but im do have seen much faster games since that with better rutines, but its qutie a very early game to been remembed.

On the Commodore 64, tunes is just tied to the screen rate and often/allways in the interups, so its dont got interupted from the game logic. Some tunes might uses cia timing throught (not tied to screen rate, but cpu based)

nice one.

Its a game im newer actuelly have played the original and has very annoying beeper music and all. Even its might have a history behind it.

Im have done various sound track based on this game, example Manic Miner: The Lost Levels for the Gameboy DS for about 13 years ago (where the original beeper was included for some of the levels, tune called "Smiths Ear Bleeder", hehe.

So its no wonder im have done various tune take with both SID as well AY.

Here is one of them (this one was AY one, single AY):

(ohh yes im DID also used the "annoying" beeper sound as the main instrument in that one, haha). Fell free to include this tune as well if you want the title sid tune im did for comply of years ago. There is comply of them on my home page.

im used flstudio, mostly with older version like version 11, because im is fan of block patteren and the newer version changed all shortcut. anyway you can download any older and newer version from thier homepage. so its not a problemo what version you ends using.

Recetnly im have do used Vortex Tracker 2.5 for doing various AY based music.

But there is various dac and no one is perfect. So its taste in mind.

that is a nice idea. :-D

SteamOS diddent work when im tested it for years ago. But also newer heard of Proton, so its might works under that.

Im have currectly no change to test it. you can test my games etc if they works or not.

im did not check with the beta version throught. For me its could been a compression issue as its quite odd and also its failed with the jpg as well for the test project im attacehment to the dropbox (as its was too big). But im havent checked with the beta.

Here im saved the file from a very old paint shop pro 7 app (yes, that about 20 years old tool) saved to jpg, png and bmp. only bmp works correctly here, but Windows picture viewer does load them file.

As im have recently reinstalled Windows, im have still yet to test gimp as its could been a compresssion issue.

Look like its more a libpng bug as we does not uses the newest one, but its should not happens with a file saved by a 20 years old tool as im tested here?

10
this is odd. Its seens its a color either the jpg or png format does not like under decompress or under copying, while its does load the same image pretty fine from the bmp format.

So its not a size or memory issue for sure (as its should fails on the bmp file).

Im is not sure what its happens, but must been some how a decompress error or a round error. im not sure. But im confirm.

Here is the project im tested it with and its failed on both the 2020 and the newest version, so its not a issue created recently:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/loppc80q85gmlcp/imageloaderror.zip?dl=0

PS. Im on purpose cropped it a bit for testing. If im blankout the size with one color, its load fine, so its not a size issue.

PPS. Also on some machines textures over 2k might crash on some devices, but not the case here.

11
some antivirus report false positive. etc when you example uses steam drm, some scanners does not like that...... bugger.

12
There was a jpg issue in Greedy Mouse as well as a jpg indeeded did crash as well in one of the newer update, but here its was just a very small floor image that caused the crash. im ended here to just convert the to png and then its worked again, its was no big deal for me.

So im will confirm the issue as there is some jpg issues here. A issue im do cant fix here, up to Gernot.

Anyway im got you possible to revert to the lastet 2020 version on steam until then or convert them to png. Size is no biggie today at all.

Yes, there is command for the extra Next features. There has been various nice basic games for it for sure. Shpeed is such a nice example, which was a game done in basic.

What you have here, we have 28mhz cpu, which is 8x faster than the original, and you have various access to sprites, hardware scrolling, tiles etc. Tiles is much much faster than bitmap (and can been used simulation for dual playfield effects). There was also a a RPG game recently, which as im have heard done in basic.....

Micheal Ware just like assembly.

Im do not have tried Next basic yet. There is some interface to been used on Windows as well.

Those rusty pixels projects is all done in Z80 Assembly. Im have source code for some of those game, as im of course is part of it. Im is not good to that, but im can uses that to design levels etc, which has been happens for both games.

And yes, im designed comply of levels for detour this time. Its fun to do. Lobo did actuelly did all graphics just in time. Awesome.

Lobo seens like Pet II C64 graphics and have done various art work only using the standard PETSCII font, even a game. And monster fighting game, that just looks great and speciel.

im do sure that jpg issue would been fixed soon, but regaardless im will not touch that version. Etc when you have done a game, its rarely you ever would upgrade anyway.
