The Dark Wheel

Reading hardware ports to detect Kempston joystick and/or keyboard inputs. Handling multiple simultaneous signals for diagonal movement and directional firing.

First, I optimise the box collision method described in tutorial #3, then I show a different, shorter method that allows pixel-perfect detection by ignoring the transparency.

How to detect when one sprite collides with another, such as the player with an enemy. (Requires the code supplied with tutorial #2.)

Ireland's first zombie movie, produced on a shoestring budget by Midnight Pictures. Filmed in Portadown, Northern Ireland, from 1991 to 93.

Tagline: They came from the grave ... Now they're going back!

Four friends return to suburbia after camping out in a local woodland. It's early morning, and the streets are empty, as you'd expect. But all is not as it seems. A horrifying disaster has happened in their absence. What follows is a fight for survival against the living dead and a desperate flight to safety. However, a more lethal threat arises: the whole town is a time bomb waiting to explode, and none of them knows it.

And therein lies the clue.

A detailed review of the Bush CRS-132 cassette recorder.

Addendum: the problem with recording through the mic socket seems related to cable interference. I had more success when I disconnected the ear cable while saving data, but it was still not entirely reliable.
