Please put me down for one of the mugs. My order on your web site isn't

I'd like one(1) too Roger, but paypal thinks I'm somebody else, neither the 
new password I gave it yesterday, or the one they gave me before is working.  
nastygram #2 in 3 days sent to paypal.  Apparently little or no connection 
between the left and right hands there.

termcap

I can't find the message now, but someone was looking for a termcap  
file. Currently I am going through some of the .DSK I made for use  
with Mess and I found an abbreviated sample of a termcap file, which  
if memory serves was used for something BBS related.

  It includes entries for WYSE50, VT100, Atari ST, CoCo3 OS9 LVII,  
Model-100, dec VT-52,  Heath Zenith 29, Silicon graphics, WYSE30, Sun  
Workstation. This is apparently from 1990 (by Simule Turner, edited  
by Brett Wynkoop)

If you want this file, please contact me.

Japanese PC Game in CoCo Style?

"Beluga Mk II" (C)2007 T. MATSUSHIMA
Video 1st 3 Stages: http://de.youtube.com/watch?v=u2IArNy2If8
I guess this is a PC game reduced to CoCo Colors/Resolution. Should be 
portet... ;-)
(The download http://matzun.hp.infoseek.co.jp/beluga.zip doesn't work 
for me).

Re: Vcc 1.40

The support for cassette files is very nice and has worked on all the ones I have played with so far. Really
great emulator!

I've changed a lot of internal stuff
around so I'd appreciate any bug reports you might wish to give.
I've not had time to write the revised docs, maybe next week. It should be
fairly self evident however.
The Cassette support could use a little more work but its mostly stable.
Good weekend to all.
Joe.

Hello Howard,

I just tried the button and it's bringing up the shopping cart just 
fine, and others are checking out since I'm getting orders.  If you 
can give me more details I'll try to fix the problem.

Thanks

Re: Coco Digest, Vol 57, Issue 1

Is there a way you can eMail this to me? It sounds like something I can use... also sounds like it *could*
potentially be used outside of the CoCo realm for non-windowed stuff (even perhaps another BBS??? (best
now to make them TelNet capable)

Re: Japanese PC Game in CoCo Style?

Torsten,

I am not sure it is - it looks like it could really be an actual CoCo 
game (but it certainly isn't one I recognize). The download, though, 
does appear to be a PC/DOS executable in the zipfile. I wonder if it is 
a real CoCo game, but written for the CoCo 3, using CoCo 2 screen modes 
for less CPU load (so more could be dedicated to sound)? Maybe even 
written post-1992?

I can't imagine why someone would create a game for the PC, and 
old-school it down to CoCo colors/res? I can only think of one other 
possibility:

Maybe it is a CGA-only game? AFAIR, though - CGA didn't have a 
red/green/blue/yellow palette set. I don't even remember a hack to 
enable such a thing. I suppose it could've been done in an EGA mode of 
some sort. At any rate, the sound probably come from speaker twiddling 
(though it seemed like cleaner sound than that - like a DAC tied to the 
parallel port).

I would love to know what the truth/reality of this game is - it looks 
like something on the edge of what a CoCo could do, given the right 
programming.
