Great stuff! :D

 

As per my comment on the faster Manic Miner here , I can only say the same. The speed improvement is a welcome addition.

Thanks :)

 

These days, it's the only version of the game I play.  Once you get used to it, the original game feels pretty clunky.  I've been looking through my old stuff and noticed a couple of things in my notes that I never got round to putting in.  So, there may be another percentage or two to come out of it, yet.

The game now has an individual page on JSW Central. There is a link to the page on the main page of the 'Minor modifications of the original Jet Set Willy' section.

 

Please let me know, Mysterion, if you would like any corrections to the information given over there :).

The miner (see the pun there!) download issue was rectified, sorry for the inconvenience. :)

Okay, Willy fans.

 

This has now been updated to the current version.

 

I've added the same new code as used in the MM patch. The frame rate gets a little boost in 128k mode, but 48k mode is more or less the same as before.  Both modes, though, get the benefit of an extra little change to speed up the tile printing side of things. It makes things just a bit snappier when jumping between rooms.  It's not a huge difference, but every little bit helps. 

 

It's just a pity I'm completely crap at this damned game.  Those people that aren't, may appreciate a bit more FPS. :)

Sorry, dude.

 

I never noticed this when it you posted it.  The information regards the patch is now out of date as this one works differently.  It now uses a huge list of POP and PUSH instructions.  Doing it this way is a touch faster than the old method, as well as being a good bit smaller.  The whole lot now fits in to one 16k RAM bank, instead of the two it needed previously.  Like before, this code is generated programmatically when you hit the 2 key in the startup menu.

Thanks, dude.

 

I put a bit of testing time into it earlier today, but still can't get anywhere.  The Foot of the Megatree was about as far as I could manage, which only leaves me about another 50(??) or so rooms to go.

 

It's only taken me some 30 odd years to get as good as that, as well... :lol:
