I've been coding on the C64 for about 4 weeks now and I'm stuck on a certain part of the demo in Hex 8.
I just cannot get the scolling text to show upper or lowercase letters. It will only show numbers and punctuation, etc?!
I use TMP by SounDemon in my MMC Replay in my breadbox 64 with Kernel-03.
I've triple-quadruple checked my code against the pic_demo.asm code and it's the same, apart from that I load the music,sines,chars,sprites and bitmap to the correct addresses instead of .incbin (which doesn't work in TMP).
music to $1000
sines to $3e00
chars to $4000
sprites to $4400
bitmap to $5800
I also changed:
message .scrl "welcome to yet another scrolling "
.scrl "message erfg er fg er oded for "
message .text "welcome to yet another scrolling "
.text "message erfg er fg er oded for "
because TMP uses .text not .scrl.
Is this right?
Any ideas? Anyone else found this problem?
I've tested my code on a breadbox with Kernel-02, a breadbox with Kernel-03, a C64C and even in Vice, but get exactly the same result.
Please help... I've been really scraping through the code in detail but haven't fixed this one yet.
Oh... and did I say hi
The Hex files series of tutorials has been really, really good.. Much thanks
