Placamaster 68k v1.30 (Genesis misc)

tomman has relased an update to his “Venezuelan license plate generator” for the Genesis/MegaDrive.


– Full code rewrite in the latest and greatest BasiEgaXorz version (1.24_rev3):
+ Plate generation engine and customizer module 99% free of nasty bugs
+ Rewrite using subs/functions – up to 5% slower, but easier to mantain
+ Replaced most string handling functions (Left$/Mid$) by direct string array handling – faster and less prone to crashes
– NEW: You can now select the state for MINFRA plates with custom serials! Or if you want, you can still use state autodetection, based on the plate’s serial (now plate-type dependant)
– Now customized serials (and those from plates shorter than 7 characters) are perfectly centered into the plate
– Customized serials max length now depend on the plate type
– Fixed a minor bug in plate information: Miranda/Merida state plates were being detected with the “wrong” state (crossed wires
– Minor fixes here and there for minimize those annoying “artifacts” on scene “transition”/drawing routines
– Minor redesign to the font used to draw plate serials: more cleaner and rounder
