We've prepared a zine version of "How to Throw a Squatted Dance Party."

crimethinc.com/SquatDance

This anonymous step-by-step guide was composed by people who organize squatted dance parties. The link between unauthorized dancing and radical politics extends back decades, from the early rave scene and the worldwide squatting movement through Reclaim the Streets and Occupy. Such adventurous events can demonstrate how much more joyous life could be.

I just found a nice tutorial on how to write a simple game in #assembler on the #zxspectrum in 30 minutes (!) and I think this may be interesting to some of you:
chuntey.wordpress.com/category

The blog also features many more articles on Spectrum game coding in assembler so you may want to look at further blog posts there, e.g. there's also a great article on how the Spectrum video memory is arranged and how to address it properly.

I finally changed the colour scheme of the enemy. The old one will work fine for a stage that is not using grey and blue.

This is looking good!

I’d like to thank Amazon UK for posting me a hard drive, from fucking America, for literally no reason that I can discern.

I suppose that’s kept a lot of people busy… *sigh*

Last bit of sneaky before my hols; sprites are working. Cut out of a texture page, etc. etc.

Yeah, well... 

Someone should make a proper "holy shit, you have no idea how fucked up all 3 of the crackdown games were" video.

Yeah, well... 

The problem with basing a video on the Gamasutra post mortem of Crackdown is that it's mostly complete and utter bollocks, written when RTW were whoring for 110 MILLION EARTH DOLLARS to make APB, which, ironically, was also a complete fucking shit-show, from start to finish.

Right, ok, I have an indexed colour workflow I can live with. Things are being blit!

TIL that using GIF or PNG8 for a 16 colour, palette based workflow, is a complete waste of time.

Everything promotes them to 256 colour, or 24bit, because you know, it's the future... *sigh*

But, I've just found the cute single header parser for Aseprite, so tonight I'm gonna see if that'll work...
