Me neither until I got the machine! Was a little surprise that I couldn't use my regular joystick! The story behind all the TED based machines is quite intriguing.

Let’s Code MS DOS 0x1E: Power BASIC Snowflake

For this year’s Christmas Episode of Let’s Code MS DOS we are revisiting Power BASIC and will be coding a very seasonal snowflake. It will be based on the Koch curve, especially implemented using an L-system. This is a rather easy system to describe fractal structures. It is not as hard as it might seem and you will be able to adjust the curve to display different things.

Reviving a Dead SEGA GameGear

I have had this SEGA GameGear lying around for a couple of years. I got it very cheap, because it was sold as broken, for parts. It came with a few games and the TV Tuner. Upon trying it out I noticed the power comes on, but all else seems dead. The GameGear is prone to have very bad capacitors, so that is the first order of the day: recapping! This and a modern LCD replacement are what we are going to tackle in this episode!

RMC aka Neil's Cave Dweller Discord. They have a chat for every major console/home computer manufacturer, and there are always knowledgeable people lurking and waiting to answer some questions.

Time for a 2 year update [1] on the CGA Graphics programming I've been doing. I announced some years ago on Vogons that I was writing a CGA graphics library. This took a back seat for a while as I tried to figure out how to do 3D rotation (which was a much harder project than I thought).

[The graphics library will continue making progress on my other YouTube channel [2] which is for assembly language/CGA graphics tutorials.]

The McCake Roland MT32 Emulator

There's some weird popping going on in the audio when you're showing off the differences between MT-32 and the McCake, your microphone is fine though. What's going on with the audio capture I wonder? It sounds like buffer underruns.

See the pinned comment in the video. I narrowed it down to Final Cut messing up the audio. It was not audible during the recording, nor is it in my m4v files of those recordings. When I now open my Final Cut project, the popping is there. So I think FC has mangled the files somehow and it ended up in the exported video. Very annoying, especially since Final Cut is supposed to be a good piece of software... 🙁

Oh, forgive me. I never watch videos anymore on the actual page so I completely missed the comments.

Yeah that's uh, really crummy. You'd think Apple would care a lot about their own software quality.

Let’s Code x86 Assembly: 0x04 DIV and Debugging

In this episode we learn how to use the DIV opcode for dividing integer numbers, how to print integer numbers to the screen, as well as how to use a debugger to understand what our program does. In all coding tasks looking for errors and understanding what the program actually does is a key aspect. So a debugger (here we use the Turbo Debugger by Borland) is a very useful tool that every developer should know how to use.
