I am working in my own 1-bit, 2-bit and 8-bit tracker, so i can make the smallest modular music format possible, giving the possibility of using chiptunes in 4k demos possible. Arpeggio, here we go!

A quick test of 320 cubes for the latest comp - but at 5fps in Flash, I'll have to convert it to Ogl for the release...

I plan to use them as a low-res display.

So many things I want to start working on (DBF compo entry, GP2X demo, Spectrum tiny entries, android entry for Ludum dare) and haven't..

Last month I was working on something more interesting though, a good triangle/polygon rasterizer for Amstrad CPC. Nice code so far, lot's of effort, but a fairly big 2d rotating pentagon in  160*200 resolution, so far around 3-4VBLs. Can be optimized a little more and maybe do 2-3VBLs. My rasterizer uses an easier way to draw polygons, that can also draw n-gons without having to split the geometry into triangles (but it only works for flat polygons as I've found out). I even tried to implement a gouraud shader too (something I have not seen on a CPC demo before and is my dream) which semi-works on PC simulation code and is screwed totally on CPC so far (and slow 8VBL). I still have ideas to optimize and will make appearance on our entry for 30 years CPC megademo in 2014.

JavaScript has a decent framerate - don't view this under IE though.

Do you really have to use 'new Array' so often? Is there not syntax for a literal array? I think you could have done this:

Code: [Select]
var corners = [ [1,1,1], [1,1,-1], [1,-1,-1], [1,-1,1], [-1,1,1], [-1,1,-1], [-1,-1,-1], [-1,-1,1] ];

Awesome CK and cool Flash/js canvas comparison!  Always interesting to compare programs in multiple languages. Would be cool to see the Ogl one for completeness :clap:

Looking forward to your entry!

If I can get the lighting bug worked out in time, hopefully a small thing for Spookyness.

I'll try that - your suggestion works under actionscript, but I changed it to the current setup while trying to make it work for JS. Something else was probably broken, so I'll try changing it back.

(edit) Great suggestion MazeMaker - I've changed everything over, and it works. K++

Thanks Kirl, here's a preview, now that I've got some image data. Can you guess what it is yet?

Hi Guys!

Just wanted to say hello and report what I've done the last few weeks (this maybe sound a bit nerdy  ;D ).

I've a movie and TV collection with about 5000 files containing it, and a hardware Mediaplayer to render this stuff to tv.
After a while it was nearly impossible to browse my collection, just imagine you want to watch a movie starting with letter "J"..it was really annoying.

So I installed a Manger for this called "yamj" (Yet another movie jukebox), which downloads information, posters from the net and stores the information in several XML Files. A nice solution, but not nice enough for a lazy person like me :). This brought me to the next step: Making a website, containing my movies and TV Shows. This was done really fast using a template system and PHP/MySQL.

But I missed something... I was not really happy that I can browse my stuff on the web, but I was just not able to start a video from my webpage. This "evolved" to the next level: Add a function to the page which uses UPnP to tell the Mediaplayer to play file X. After a while of browsing the net I found the theory how to do it but I didn't found a program which was able to play a file, only using the commandline. So I did this too (and UPnP is a very annoying protocol...).

I packaged this stuff and uploaded it to a GIT repository: https://github.com/theknurz/yamj-ro-suite

If you have readed this.. I warned you..it's a bit nerdy  ;D

BTW, nice competition again, if I find time, I'll distribute something :).

Well, I just helped finding a musician for the Batman Demo.
Yes, AAP was a very funny fellow with his extraordinary reviews and I also miss the new freebasic demo additions at his site.

Good news, I started yesterday with my DBF entry and it's turning quite nice and funny in one day already. And I think I will not be in a hurry with the release this time, and I will add as much additional stuff in the next days.
