Nintendo emulator: A/NES 1.2
The Nintendo emulator A/NES (not to be confused with A/NES Pro, which is based on the same source-code but with a rewritten graphics engine) had not been updated for more than 14 years. Now Morgan Johansson rediscovered his fun on working on the original version, which is restricted to ECS and AGA, respectively. Thus further releases are possible.

Changes in version 1.2:
  • Minor graphics optimizations
  • Rewrote stack-handling code (no more "stack overflow" errors)
  • Fixed bug related to Sprite-DMA that could crash the game
  • Removed some old debug-code that slowed things down (oops)
  • Added mapper 87

Programming contest: Results of BASIC 10Liner Contest
For the "BASIC 10Liner Contest" you could send in self written BASIC programms consisting of exactly 10 lines (amiga-news.de reported). Usually the winners are announced during the annual live show "NOMAM" ("Not only marvelous Atari machinery").

As Gunnar Kanold wrote, due to a case of illness the "NOMAM" could not be take place as planned. Therefore the results of the contest have been announced on Twitter little by little and finally the complete list has been published. On the Games list 2021 all programms are introduced with pictures. "The Children", released for Atari 800 XL, this year has been the winner of the category "EXTREM-256" getting an average score of 10,17 which was the best. This time no programms for Amiga was sent in.

Due to the overwhelming response, Gunnar Kanold is considering to change the mode of the contest: The team could hardly manage this large number of submissions. (dr) (Translation: (dr)
