A very sad day in ninjabyte's history

So, we've stopped paying for the domain ninjabyte.eu and it got sold and converted to some pr0n/sex site (looks pretty disgusting).Essentially this is it. Was fun to work on this Europe wide project, but this is the end.Good news though:p2 and I are working on a very nice retro system at this very moment that will come with a CRT Also to any admins (I have no clue anymore who is after all these incidents):It would be nice to have this theme as an option for the main site too (theme settings) sin...

Configuration format

So I guess we will also have a so called Claw Data Notation to have easily editable configuration files that will be used by the OS and the games to store highscores and savegames and to load levels from.It will have arrays of numbers, numbers, strings and booleans and uses key-value pairs.Comments are there too. The overall style will be similar to Claw.I think I will also make it possible to compile it into bytecode too so that it loads faster but then the possibility of editing it easily is l...

Graphics and other system routines

Hello, in this topic you can suggest and vote for graphics and drawing routines that I we will use in he official API and system.To start, I want to have some sprite routines, but I can't get them to work: void oled_bdraws(int16_t x, int16_t y, uint8_t width, uint8_t height, const uint8_t bitmap[]) { uint8_t ow = width; if(width + x > BUFFER_WIDTH) width -= width + x - BUFFER_WIDTH; if(height + y > BUFFER_HEIGHT) height -= height + y - BUFFER_HEIGHT; if(width + x <= 0 || height + y <= 0)...

Design and layout

In this topic I would like to discuss the design and layout of the microcat.adekto made this drawing a few days ago: (2015-10-19+at+03.38.50).png The green boxes would go on the back and I was thinking about putting headphones jack and usb port on the top.Also the row of four button ontop might be replaced by two buttons.What button layout would you suggest? And how do you like the overall shape?

Programming language support

The microcat is going to be very modular and open. The BIOS will support loading different firmwares which can either be runtime environments for games written in (compiled-) scripting or VM based languages or C based games (similar to the Gamebuino). Changing the firmware will be easy and will be done using a graphical menu or the firmware that is currently running (if supported by it). The flash has an endurance of only 10^4 erase-write cycles and therefore writing C games will be supported bu...
