I would also like to be up to date with any (however small) progress in this port through this thread.

I mean, some of the best and most informative threads here on the EAB began like this.

And if this doesn't get finished, nothing is lost either.

So I guess I'm in the minority here and it's likely a battle I won't win.

All I'll say is this:- I've had nothing but support from the EAB on my posts of project updates, but I do actually show something visually because it helps with feedback and generates discussion in what is a discussion forum.

It's not that I'm not grateful of the updates here, it's just they're not adding much value in my eyes (for me at least).

I'll be passive about it from now.

Thumbs up

I went to the site, and listened to the music from the title screen, and industrial area. Really fantastic! Better than the arcade !!

From the site http://www.electriccafe.xyz/double-dragon

"An alternative option will be to see if we can use the TFMX music system (used in games like Turrican). As this will give us upto 7 channels of music (I think) and I believe this gets mixed in software down to 1 output channel, leaving 3 channels for SFX."

I think TFMX is great, but it suffers from one major flaw,
the performance impact.
And that's why it was only used in the title screen with 7 channels and
not during gameplay (Turrican 2).
I found this video on YT which talks about a similar audio
engine but which should impact much less on performances,
maybe it could be used instead of TFMX. Who knows!

To be clear, TFMX was used in game for Turrican/Turrican 2. But just in 4 channel mode, rather than 7 channels

Just to add TFMX is using the CPU to mix so its not useful in game.

13th September 2020 Update !

"Locked framerate & state machine

We now have our game loop locked at 50fps so each frame is 20ms in realtime. This is important to get in place as it will effect the timings of everything from animation to the feel of the game. If a beat’em up is not fluid and reactive to the joystick input then there is no point. We aim to make the fighting in this port fast and furious so it feels like a proper scrap.

Additionally we have been finishing off the logic of the state machine for the player, and getting it working just right.

From here I will be concentrating on coding the game engine, the AI, hit points etc.. this can all be done with simple rectangles for now. But while i’m working on that my friend will be sorting out displaying graphics onto the screen, and then onto some simple scrolling."
