This post was spurred on because I was replying to a comment today where someone was asking for my z80 to 6809 program and the link was dead. I updated the link to the latest version I could find on my computer. After replying to him I thought I might as well make this little post.
It’s been almost 1.5 years since I’ve posted anything here but life has been treating me like a baby treats diapers and I lost interest in using my CoCo. But lately I’ve been playing a little with some of my old 6809 code and enjoying it. I hope it continues to be fun and I have something useful to post here for the CoCo community in the future. I guess we’ll see.
For those that are wondering about my Defender conversion, it was at a point that it would play weirdly and crash randomly. I remember fighting with the code for hours and hours but couldn’t figure out why it was doing the things it was. I think I needed to improve the emulation of the scanline location code too, at least I remember doing a lot of thinking about that code back then. Anyways it will be a long time until I’m back into the CoCo enough to look at that code again. But maybe one day…
I hope all my CoCo friends are well,
