New Year's Disc 2020
Hello everyone!
Welcome to this years edition of NYD!

It was a hard year for me in 2019 - a big not expected thing happend to me. So
it was not so easy to create something for the A8. But I didn't want to stop
this tradition and even if I had no clue, what to code myselves I started the
call for entries at November 8th 2019.

Gunstar and eMKay where about the first who had contacted me and eMKay just had
a nice tune ready, so I had an idea, what I could try to code and asked both to
help. But due to some more problems here, time ran out to do a nice production.

At the end I had to cancel this project, to have at least one thing ready for
NYD 2020. Again: Sorry Gunstar and eMKay that I did not complete the thing and
your work is not presented as we had planned.

I really hope to come back to this project and make it to a presentable and nice

Ok, now back to this NYD...

My little intro should run on NTSC or PAL, but should be watched in PAL, as the
colours are not set for NTSC - sound runs well even at 60 Hz PAL machines this
time. Tools used to do this are: Rasterconverter, mads, graph2font, ATARI Font
Maker, Raster Music Tracker, WUDSN - Thanks to the authors of these tools. The
music was ripped from a modfile ebbhead made in 1992.

Other words from the people who had made the projects are added below the

We hope you all got well into 2020 and will have fun watching, listening and
yes, PLAYING!!! There is imho a very well done game there this time :) At least
my daughter had some minutes of fun playing the ATARI, yet.

Fabrizio Caruso - Mines
  - Atari Basic 10-liner strategy game
  - game available for many platforms (github.com/Fabrizio-Caruso/mines)

You are in a minefield where mines appear both
- under your feet once you move and 
- around you (more if you do not move)
You can clear the area around you with anti-mine charges but you can only carry
a maximum of 9.
If you reach a "$" item you get an extra anti-mine charge.
The field has upper and lower borders that kill you if reached. Left and right
borders wrap around.
The rate of mines appearing around you increases continuously.

- reach the highest score possible by walking on empty positions or collecting
  charges "$"
- avoid stepping on mines or the upper and lower borders
- reach the next 100 points to get a full recharge of your anti-mine charges

- walk into an empty position: 1 point
- walk into an anti-mine charge "$": 5 points

- use I J K L keys to move 
- use SPACE bar to clear nearby area (if you have enough charges)

Wrathchild - Doomfire
This demo I initially worked on in April 2019 after converting the original
Javascript into a C and Allegro prototype on Windows.
The aim was to then port take that code onto the UNO Cart’s ARM processor to
see it running on the A8 but that hasn’t been done yet.
There were two flavours, a 2x2 pixel mode for 2 rows of Graphics 10 per square
at 80 pixels wide or 4x4 pixels for 4 rows at 40 pixels wide.
For the NYD 2020, I have converted the C into 6502 assembler and first tried to
see if the 2x2 version would run ok on a stock machine. 
It was almost acceptable but I chose to move to the 4x4 mode instead and this
works fine. 
Coding was done across 3 days from 29th-31st Dec but has taken about a day
NTSC/PAL is detected at startup and colors/colours are adjusted accordingly
however the music will run a little faster on NTSC.
Having listened through the Winter Olympiad 88 songs, initially I was thinking
to use the Biathlon tune but preferred the Downhill one in the end.
