Gorillas Advance v1.8 (GBA Game)

Do you remember the old qBasic game “Gorillas”? Now Ben Stark did a remake for GBA, but read more…

Hello, my name is Ben Stark.This is my first video game written from the ground up for the GBA. It is also one of my few first programs written in C. My contact info is below if you have any ideas, suggestions, hate mail, or bugs.Gorillas Advanced puts two badly drawn Gorillas and a pixel sized banana against each other. On each side of the screen is a gorilla. Inbetween them are blue scyscrapers. You must enter the angle and velocity of the banana, while taking into consideration the wind factor, to hit the opposing gorilla.There is a single and two player option in this game, and the score is kept on wins. In the single player mode, you play against the CPU. In two player mode, you swap the GBA between two players.

PS2 Demo from TUM 2002 (PS2 misc)

I’ve been on the demoparty “TUM 2002” recently. We had a console competition with one entry for PS2 by WiRE/Napalm.

Unfortunatly I can’t remember the name. The results and downloads aren’t up yet, but you can throw an eye on the TUM homepage from time to time. The results should be up soon…

Zelda Demo (GBA Techdemo)

The “Zelda Demo” has been done by Alex Pagliaro aka Dark Cloud. Here is a small extraction from the readme:

This is a small demo of sprite animation, backgrounds, and sprite+background collision using graphics from the Legend of Zelda. It works pretty well except for one small bug which I can’t seem to figure out. But you probably won’t encounter it. I might make the source code public if I clean it up a bit first.

HBLANK and HBLANK 2 (GP32 Techdemos)

On the 21st December “Mr. Spiv” updated his page with following:

I put two technical demos online showing how HBLANK emulation can be used… effects are lame and done in hurry.. but I’m a lazy man.

The description:
hblank.fxe is a simple example of HBLANK interrupt and DMA triggering emulation. The picture has 256 colors and the color bars on background are done changing the background color (LUT color 0) on every raster line. Less than 4KB of data needs to be moved per frame refresh in order to make all these effects.. so very CPU & BUS friendly. Demos run at 66MHz and almost 60fps…
hblank2.fxe does basically the same but with 16bits picture and two layers.

Thanks to Mr. Spiv himself for the news.

Various… (misc)

Hi everyone…

  • I’ll be away from the 27th December up to the 5th January. I’m hardly reachable in that time and may not post news nor reply on any e-mail I get.
  • From this Friday to Sunday I’ll be in Mannheim/Germany on the “TUM” demoparty. More Information could be found here:
  • PDRoms will get a News-Archive very soon. Pancid is allready working on it.
  • I’m seriously thinking about getting a FTP server for PDRoms. This should be seen as additional service. You will be able to get all the homebrewn stuff avaliable here without clicking through all pages. We already had a discussion in #pdroms EFNET but I want to get a few more opinions. Please feel free to e-mail me.
  • I think that’s it so far, have a nice day all…
