Re: Update on next release

Ah, I was wondering if there was more to it.

If you don't mind explaining (and please point me elsewhere if it has already been written!), what makes the Wimp SWIs a special case?

Re: Update on next release

Wow. Lots of good stuff posted today!

I have been meaning to ask, what exactly is meant by 'wimp support'? Those games which have wimp front ends for config?

Re: Update on next release

I think the 'dev site' is restricted access and 'invite only'.

Sounds like Jon has been a busy bee with the recent bug fixes! And any new game releases are always interesting.

Re: YouTube videos

Was there ever an analogue joystick for the Archimedes? I believe there were, I couldn't name any of them though. If you ask over on StarDot, I'm sure someone will know which makes and interface you need to use them. There was a product called the 'Delta Cat' which plugged into the mouse port. Work...

Re: Update on next release

For what it is worth, I enjoy any sort of update on here, even if I don't follow it all. However it seems unreasonable to sound demanding when someone is dedicating their own time. I am in awe of your commitment, probably more so than the impressive technical achievements.

Re: Tontec 3.5" Pi Touch Screen driver

The tablet idea sounds fun, but how usable will an on-screen keyboard be? Surely a proper keyboard, mouse and perhaps joystick is essential for Arc gaming? I want to build a JASPP/Pi rig soon, and cannot decide on the parts. I quite fancy something portable that I can plug into a TV, perhaps built i...

Re: Pi 2 support

Ah, that makes sense, thanks.

I guess the Pi support is what could help get JASPP to a wider market. Messing about with 25 year old machines isn't for everyone!

Re: ADFFS under emulation

The cutting edge for Arculator is here (if you fancy compiling your own)

There is also a work in progress fork which aims to run on Linux (Arculator is Windows-only)

Re: ADFFS under emulation

Have you tried Arculator? From what I remember, it was pretty good at emulating the older machines at a sensible speed.
