Old News

December 18th 2011

Cooper finished another puzzle game for the Atari Falcon 030. It was already released at Sillyventure 2k11

See Pouet at http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=58102 or our Games section for download

August 11th 2011

Simon Sunnyboy finished a little helper routine to draw tiles onto an ST-LOW screen from AHCC.

The routine draws either 16, 32, 48 or 64 pixel wide tiles in all 4 planes with any amount of scanlines on an ST-LOW screen.

The x coordinate is cropped to 16pixel increments for speed.

Download in the AHCC section.

Cooper and Simon Sunnyboy attended Atari Days Nancy 2011 this weekend in Tantonville, France.

It was a small but great and very friendly event with an ace catering! :)

Check the photos at SSB's blog

August 1st 2011

Simon Sunnyboy learned abit how to use LINEA on a low level. The result is a small routine to provide an RC_COPY equivalent for AHCC.

The routine can be adapted to Pure C using the Pure C native LINEA API with small rewrites. Same functionality as GFABASIC RC_COPY but now for C. (ST-LOW only due to hardcoded values)

Download in the AHCC section.

February 20th 2011

Simon Sunnyboy ported GT Turbo's interface for Wizzcat Protracker Replay from GFABASIC to C. You can now replay Amiga protracker modules at 12KHz on the STE DMA sound hardware from AHCC. Credits go to GT Turbo and Wizzcat ofcourse!

Download in the AHCC section.

February 15th 2011

Time for another small code release. Simon Sunnyboy finished his rasterbar sources for AHCC and you can download them in the AHCC section.

The package should be compatible with Pure C if you tweak the project file. You basically have to add the files ssb_rast.s and ssb_rast.h files to your project.

January 9th 2011

Whew, what a long time since the last update!

Cooper released his latest Atari ST puzzle game called Kolmik (Deluxe Edition) on Christmas 2010. It has been on DHS for some time but I (SSB) didn't update our webpage.

Grab the game at the Games page and don't forget to vote on Pouet!

July 10th 2010

Simon Sunnyboy added his STLOW access library for AHCC to the AHCC page.

You can now easily switch to ST-LOW or ST-MEDIUM from your C code. Just link the new library and use its calls.

February 14th 2010

Starting with today Paradize officially supports C coders on the Atari ST. Simon Sunnyboy plans to move to C in the upcoming time. In this process a lot of libraries and helpful C code will emerge.

You will find those libs and stuffs on the AHCC Support page. AHCC is a free and Pure C compatible compiler that is still developed and supported so go grab the AHCC Compiler package and enjoy!

For the start we have a small library for accessing the IKBD, e.q. reading keyboard, mouse and joystick without the help of TOS. Support libs for switching to ST-LOW, Falcon TrueColor, Jagpad access, DMA Sound and replaying SNDH music will soon follow (hopefully before Outline 2010)

Happy C coding!

Some small additions:

May 25th 2008

Today Paradize releases a special goody for all the GFABASIC lovers out there. Simon Sunnyboy's Rasters for GFABASIC install a Timer B handler to have support for rasterbars in GFABASIC. The routine rasters a color register of your choice (0 by default) with a list of colors the programmer can specify and alter on the fly. The width of the raster bars can be controlled as well.
A raster stabilizer is fully included in the raster handler but a seperate version of the stabilizer for use in your own raster routines can be downlaoded as well.
