So I have my idea on what to do for the tribute this year, but I was wondering how best to do it.
My options are:
- to do more-or-less an update on last year's program, and do it on the C64 again (I have some great ideas and a much more efficient set of code)
- to use a slide-show program for the VIC-20 and then do more pictures but less running commentary-- this is necessary because of the lower memory available in the VIC-20 and also the high cost of doing the hi-res graphics in the VIC-20
- To try to cobble something up on the C16/Plus4 but that doesn't seem like a good idea to me at all, since my 16 has... well, about 16K of memory. That's right, this webpage, when served up with all its headers and scripts and whatnot is probably big enough to crash the BASIC memory workspace of the C16, which is 12.1K.
- To try something in 128 mode on my C128.
Personally, I'm leaning toward the C64 or VIC-20, and I am hoping to finally have a couple days off at the end of the week to put something like this together. But just thought I'd throw this out there for your thoughts.
