In Topic: How to I get started creating patches?

24 January 2018 - 12:09 PM

Of all the programming languages I have learned (and forgotten) assembler ranks #1 in terms of potential
speed but also #1 in terms of difficulty, especially for logic. So absolute kudos to you, Lee, for doing the
patches in assembler.
Back in the day when I was still involved in the (computer) demo scene on PC (mid to late 1990s) we used
to do the logic with C or some other high level language and the actual pixel output via assembler inserts
within routines... Mode 13h, ah memories from a long distant part of my um youth I suppose

mov ax, 13h
int 10h

Hey Bob,

thanks for that post. It reminded me that Reims is still a place I want to visit. I want to take in the scenery, even if
today most of the old track has been replaced. Every bleeding time I go to or return from Le Mans I think to myself
"just add a day to your trip and go see Reims". And then I remember that, as usual, I didn't get either the pre-race
Friday nor the post-race Monday off of work. So with that in mind, every time when the checkered flag is dropped
at 3 pm, I head for my car (parked a hundred meters up from the Carrefour Le Mans Roncerai, Rue de la Laigne
pointed homewards already) and start the 852 km trip back and realize - I don't have the time :(. Maybe next year
will be different as I've already requested the Friday and Monday off.

Reims is the track where I won my first race against the AI in GPL (in a '69 I believe) and next to Laguna Seca it
was the first mods I did for GPL. I only started working on cars much later. I think you will find my first few posts
about modding from 2006 or thereabouts here. Should be about Laguna Seca.

Well, it's funny, that an electric car (NIO EP9) is topping the charts at this time :)
Well according to the simulation guys, a current F1 would do it in around 5mins. 5 effin minutes! The ring.
Try to wrap your head around that.
