Unfortunately I was not able to attend Nordlicht 2019 Nordlicht 2019 Website. But… There are the remote entries!
This entry was made for the “GFX Compo (Oldschool)” competition, the entry must run on oldschool hardware (in this case a C64), and an executable is allowed (or even mandatory). I chose to use a 100% BASIC program to display a very nice image. At the same time I am exploring the competition rules. Where, exactly is the border and how far “Crossing the Border” is allowed.
The image shows two realms with a common border. Is there an army waiting or an uneasy truce? Maybe they are friends. In all cases for further development “Crossing the Border” is a mandatory step.
convert.hs script is a Haskell
program to generate the Basic
DATA statements which store the image
and the colour information of the image. The tool will take any binary
file and it will convert it to a valid Basic program. This Basic
program can be loaded directly by a C64 as the linked list of
statements is correctly generated.
Grafx2 graphics program for pixel artists. It has the possibility to save the image in the C64 format which ensures that the image and colour data is saved in a C64 compatible format. And, of course, that no more than two colors per 8*8 cell are allowed as we use the HiRes mode.
Mtpaint is another graphics program for the pixel artist. It has some nice features which Grafx2 is lacking so I use both programs alternately.
For further information see the Crossing the
Borders homepage. For
greetings have a look at the Basic code. The basic code can be found
