DarkChip 8 Version 1.1
This release now includes a set of Super Chip roms as well as the usual Chip 8 roms. The emulator now asks if you want to play Chip 8 or Super Chip roms and displays the appropriate list of games.
The big news for this release is 7 out of 17 Super Chip roms are playable which is a good start for Super Chip emulation.
Also, I've added an option to let you configure the emulated clock speed on the fly. You can speed up Chip 8 games or slow down Super Chip games with this.
Here's a list of the changes.
* Implemented Super Chip extended graphics mode (128 x 64 resolution)
* Implemented Super Chip scroll down command (currently VERY slow)
* User can now adjust the speed of the emulator using keys F5 to F8. This was implemented so that you can speed up the emulator if you feel it's too slow and to adjust speed for Super Chip games as the clock speed should be faster then Chip 8. So what these keys do essentially speed up the emulated clock speed.
F5 = Original Chip 8 emulator speed
F6 = Slightly faster
F7 = Faster
F8 = Very fast (Default Super Chip emulated speed)
Please note that on very low end computers speeding up the clock speed could possibly cause the emulator to skip frames to keep up.
* These Super Chip games are now playable.
* TODO LIST:
Implement settings for preferences (drawing color, sound, etc.)
Implement Superchip scroll left and right. Speed up scrolling routines
Increase Super Chip compatability.
Can you do that???
