July 30, 2018 by muguk

At HaxoGreen 2018 in Luxembourg, Gunstick/ULM released an updated version of his talk on all things chip-sound.

HaxoGreen is an international, 4-day open-air event in Luxembourg for people interested in technology or art. It provides a small but relaxed atmosphere for free exchange of technical, social, and political ideas.

At this event, Gunstick/ULM gave an updated version of his guide to the evolution of soundchip music on the Atari ST. It's a blow-by-blow walkthough of all things YM-2149: from the early days through to the modern era of music-making on our machines.

Watch it on YouTube.

Random review

This game is true to the original version, almost pixel by pixel. The graphics were ripped from the Speccy and updated for the ST. Luckily, the pixellated look remains. The maps were designed from the ground up on the ST but created to be as accurate as possible to the 1983 classic. In the end, this gives us a very solid and fluent conversion, programmed in pure ASM, with an oldschool look.

Did you know?

In the mid 80's Atari was approached by a company called Nintendo. They asked if Atari was interested in distributing their new 8 bit system. At that time, Jack Tramiel was head of the Atari company. He declined the offer, saying Atari wanted to stop releasing consoles and focus on personal computers instead! So in the end, Nintendo had to distribute the consoles themselves ... In just a few months, they wiped Atari from the throne!
