After watching the DragonBob part of Slight’s “Bitter Reality” megademo, I decided to try my hand at the animation routine. (I should use the display list, but was lazy). The animation is done by having three screens which are constantly flipped through. An object (“bob”), in this case a small circle, is moved around the screen. It is placed on the current screen, so when the next frame appears, it is gone....

Falcon NVRAM Battery replacement

Sunday August 26th, 2018 06:44:37 PM

It takes some time to connect another 3V source to it but it may be worth the trouble...
