i think, the 98% of the PC programmers don't know nothing about pc-assembler

Is guess PC's aren't that well suited for ASM either... Besides? Why waste your time on ASM if a 25MHz PC could prolly run a C version of Mopi Ranger?

Testing once more... Why has it to be so difficult to distribute something?

That, and it's more than likely that a modern C compiler will generate MORE EFFICIENT code for modern x86 CPU's than you could assemble by hand.
The pipelines have become quite long, and there are dozens of different stalls to take into account, and what's fast on an AMD might be slow on an Intel (almost never the other way around, coz AMD chips rule), etc etc...

That said, you CAN write faster PC assembly than a C compiler can, but it will take you several times longer to make it efficient than it would take to program the same thing in e.g. Z80 assembly.

Yeah, but could a 25 MHz PC run DirectX 9 and .NET support? I guess that the answer is "no".

In fact, with that russian recompiling tool, it could even run in PC without typing a single line of code.

In stead of writing code, you'd be doing all kinds of other work... That tool is not automagical.

Problem solved...
Seems DirectX 9 does not install Managed DirectX by default.
I have added the newest Managed DirectX on the site (www.jegids.nl/mopi).

I can continue with the remake :)

Exqueeze me, but I'd rather not have to install all kinds of weird DirectX 9 stuff for a simple game that could work in DirectX 5...

This is what I like about MSX (or console) games: they just work!

It is official DirectX stuff. But it isnt installed by default. You also could download the complete DirectX 9.0c and install it. I just put the part that is needed on the site.

Hehe, nice Job Henk! Keep it up Smile Maybe a nice level editor, once the game is finished?

You might stumble upon some resistance when you ask people to install another ~40mb to get the game running. It's a drawback of the .net platform. (though the same counts for Java and its JDK/webstart/etc.). Nevertheless it's a nice project. Maybe you can share the code in the end, so that other C# fans may learn from it?
