We have only just started the MRC Bounce Challenge and already have received two entries: Jone Jumpy by Jonemaan and, as of now, Bounce by Sonic. This turboR-only demo shows a modified screenshot of the MSX Resource Center with a bouncing ball. The demo contains a nice shadow-effect to honour the late Fuzzy Logic. The demo only works in DOS1 mode and uses Team Bomba's BitBuster for compression.

Several persons and groups are already working on new entries for this challenge. Would you like to join in as well? Your entries will be judged by ANMA's André Ligthart and we will reward the best entries, and one or two random entries, with nice prizes. You can send your creations to bounce@msx.org. Good luck!

Hmm.... You running in DOS2? Since I was going for first entry I didn't waste the time on making it DOS2 compatible. BTW, the syntax error is normal; I didn't cleanup the BASIC RAM on exit.

Sonic, you, especially of all people, should know that Turbo R equals DOS2 Smile It runs on it by default, but I'll give it a try in DOS1 mode Smile

Well, considering I made it on NLMSX that kinda comes as a surprise Tongue Smile

So stop running the darn thing in DOS2!!! Tongue And yes, I do know that Turbo-R equals DOS2, which is why I dumped all the files on a DOS1 image and sent it to MRC. I guess I should have mentioned that it should be distributed as a DSK file, not an archive.

So, dump the whole lot on a DOS1 disk image and let your TR/emu rip. Snout tested is on hardware and it's supposed to work. Apparently the ball looks like a smiley tho Tongue Wink And it works on an ST too, indeed... Thanks for wanting to see it tho Smile
