That's looking quite good. :)

 

It actually seems to be a bit faster than the B version and there's no (or little) flicker something which seemed to plague the 'B version.

I thought it was miraculous when they converted Chuckie Egg to it but getting MM is pure magic!

 

For its time, the Acorn Atom was a brilliant little machine!

Hi guys,

do you like my BBC to Atom conversions ....... ;)

I love writing software for the Atom. The MM intro screen is ready now:

The game is not finished yet, I'm still having trouble with the collision routines.
MM can stand on top of a monster and the highest keys can not be reached so it still needs some work.
The flicker is not all gone because the MM plot routine is the same as the BBC version which maybe can be less if triggered by vsync.

PS You can see more of my conversions here: https://www.youtube....r/oss003/videos

Greetings
Kees

It looks very promising, Kees. Keep up the good work and let us know when your Atom conversion is ready!

I concur that does look quite good. :)

 

If you take a look at the BBC versions of MM and then JSW, the 'engine' in JSW does not seem to suffer from the flicker at all (or very little) , I'm not sure if that is going to be any assistance though.

Welcome back. :)

 

Great news, appreciated. I'll fire up an Atom emulator later and check it out. :D
