That’s because I didn’t use MYM format, I used my own format (FYM) that contains patterns compressed in RLE.
Impressive effects!

Not so many effects, but really great music here! Didn't knew that a "Apple II" have those sound-possibilities.

This is a mistake I made during 34 years! The Apple II does not have any advanced sound capabilities (only a 1-bit beeper). Nor it does have serial com, , timers, DMA, disk drive, etc. Because it is an open platform with 7 slots available for expansion cards. A bare Apple II only has RAM, ROM, a keyboard, a composite output and audio in/out for tape access (the only exceptions are the Apple IIc and Apple IIgs).
And some audio cards were released in the early 80s! The one I use is the most common one, the Mockingboard 2, that offers two AY-3-8910 and two timers. Some games were actually compatible with this card, like Ultima or Skyfox.

are FYM tools available?
added on the 2019-04-23 17:39:02 by g0blinish g0blinish
Only my YM->FYM conversion tool that I didn't inlude in the source archive because it was non fonctional at the party.
Here it is https://fenarinarsa.com/demos/MockingboardYM_2019_sources.zip
(look in YMOptimize.zip)

Ah okay, now i understand. Then it was an, so to speak, upgraded Apple II that was used here to create this sound. Nevertheless good music.

Hey, nice job! After my Bad Apple ][+ demo, I'll have to surpass myself to do better than you :-) thx for the competition :-)

no interrupts, no timer .. wow, didn't know that apple sucked that hard from the early beginning ;)

there are two ways for use A2 interrupts: see French Touch source or read MB examples.

The Apple II is the very first mass market personal computer, so of course it sucks. But it can be extended with a lot of cards, so it's really like a PC. In that respect I don't know if we can say it's an "upgraded" Apple II. Is a PC upgraded because it has a sound card? Remember that on modern PCs, sound cards are not mandatory, by default there is only one beeper :)

The French Touch sources archive is a gold mine, I wouldn't have made this demo without his work since it's one of the few that released his sources.

That's why I release everything I do under GPL, it may help others.

@wiz21 your bad apple version is simply awesome, I still haven't done anything related to floppy access yet and I target higher configurations. I really started to make this demo one month before the party so I have a lot of things to learn.
Motivational thumb because I admire you dedication and want to see more from you.
However since you self-voted, as a deal I offer to exchange your thumb up for this piggie.
