I myself use my MD Tracker for making music for MD games, but could very well be used for QB games (as the program is in QB45). On PC it works on MIDI, but will only let you use 5 any instrument channels, 2 drum channels and 3 Lead Square channels... as close as it gets to MD not having a YM2612+PSG...

Current versions of DOSbox are MUCH faster than the old ones... I could even get more or less acceptable speed out of my Celeron1000 :shock:

OOP sucks. I have to agree with that statement. Being an assembly programmer, I can't understand how OOP code can be fast and efficient... in assembly you don't have OOP, and assembly is as close as it gets to the language CPU talks when you don't want to deal with opcodes in hex editor...

Thanks for enlightening me on the 5 ports part :) I love MD controller ports... 6-bit bidirectional parallel port (which each bit's direction can be configured independently) or 4800baud(I may be wrong with that number) RS-232C serial port. I like MD HW level, things are made so easy to deal with, a...

my bad about PCE not being able to flip sprites... I knew it couldn't flip tiles... Looking at 1 controller port on HW wise makes no real sense though... its not like its difficult to add another port... only reason would be to cut cost. On another note, the multi tap having 5 controller ports is a ...

I'm aware that the 6280 is faster than 68000... each CPU has edge on some areas... I like 68000 more that any other CPU as its very orthogonal, has lot of registers and all are 32bit (one isn't, but its not general purpose anyway) and flat address space. You've got an innaccuracy in Video... all 64 ...

PPUs are in NES and SNES, I have a VDP in MD :P Other than palettes, its better at some aspects than what you have in PCE/TG16... 2x Scrolls, line scrolling, vertical tile scrolling, tile/sprite flipping... More palettes would have been nicer though (4 for BG, 4 for Sprites as in some arcade machine...
