The Elite Intro Reloaded (fixed)

sta IRQ_Pointer ; stx IRQ_Pointer+1 ; sty $d012
dec $d019
jsr music.play

that's the error, you clear it during the IRQ but not in the Init. Patch as I said in my comment.

i can inject my assembled code directly from pc over the u2

That prolly takes always the same amount of time to load and the irq triggers always in a favourable position.
Load it normally from disk and run manually. There is a chance it will hang also for you

hi folks... thanks for the nice words and the critism.

first some words about the strange behavior:
i developed this on pc and tested it strongly on vice 3.2. my "real" hardware is a reloaded mk2 board with an u2+ attached.
i can inject my assembled code directly from pc over the u2+ into the c64 ram. i've tested it several times and it worked fine.
i have no idea, why it on some configurations you guys are using doesn't work :O

and... d019 IS cleared:

sta IRQ_Pointer ; stx IRQ_Pointer+1 ; sty $d012
dec $d019
jsr music.play

lda #0
ldx #0
ldy #0


and... the NMI is set the following way:

lda #$7f ; sta $dc0d ; sta $dd0d
lda #<nmi ; ldx #>nmi
sta NMI_Pointer ; stx NMI_Pointer+1
bit $dc0d ; bit $dd0d

this kills the RESTORE key (remember the restore-bug-testing @ X2018?)

yes, the finish-code is ugly... and i missed, to include a more smooth one... :/

It works out of luck. The missing $d019 clearance makes the IRQ trigger randomly, depending when the intro is run. too bad because the rest is 10/10 for me.

Intro looks great!
Have no problems running it here. Vice3.1 with AR.

A lot of hassle to get his intro working on a real C64. Using the U2+ / dma load crashes the intro almost instantly. Even without the use of any speed loader cart and loading it from floppy (d64 disk image) it crashes.

To get it working I needed to unplug the U2+ and use it in standalone mode. Loading the intro without anything in the expansion port seems to be the only way to get it to work (for now).

Then there's the ugliness when pressing the space bar. This really seems like a rushed job to me and that's a pity.

I think it's a CIA timer irq. If you break at entry point $80d and then enable brakpoint on nmi you will get a break couple of times. And the CIA vector is still pointing to kernal routines since kernal is banked in.

Here it works in VICE 3.1-x64 with AR60pal cartridge seamlessly.. cool intro!

Ok seems more likely an IRQ init problem, I managed to get it crashing even without AR, just injecting the prg in a d64. So it inits wrong or bad depending on the moment it's run, maybe d019 isn't cleared on init and a spurious pending irq fires too soon. Try this
-3CD1  20 00 10  JSR $1000
+3CD1  20 52 3D  JSR $3D52
+3D52  20 00 10  JSR $1000
+3D55  CE 19 D0  DEC $D019
+3D58  60        RTS

Yeah, seems AR unfriendly. Detach all carts.

Strange flicker bugs up to a crashing experience on the raster lines turning the screen black - whenever Action Replay is enabled. Works fine without...

Didn't care to investigate the reasons though. Vice 3.3 nightly.

Rulez ! The little stars going over the border really makes it for me.

I have had frequent issues starting this intro with Win VICE V3.1 x64sc.exe with PAL C64C (ReSID). Various crashes.

Very cool intro! A few inconsistencies in the font ruin it for me though, the "v" looks out of place, and the "m"/ "w" look a bit small. Other than that, one of my faves from the compo!

Funny, I've coded something similar. :)
You'll see it later.
But thumbs up for this one!
