RetroChallengeRetry 2020/04
April 6, 2020 (Monday)
There is an unofficial RetroChallenge this month, the RetroChallengeRetry! So I bought a kind of computer I know nothing about and have zero experience using: An MSX computer. My goals: Make it work, play games, and if I have time, program something on it!
PCjr cartridge PCB version 3 image
PCjr cartridge PCB version 3
March 31, 2020 (Tuesday)
I recently updated my 64k PCjr cartridge PCB design to offer greater flexibility. It can now use any Chip Select, can replace the system BIOS and now also supports 32k chips.
StellarRoads: Platform game for PC (DOS)  image
StellarRoads is a 2D scrolling platformer where you can only go forward and survive by skillfully controlling the vessel's speed and jumping right on time!

Heavily influenced by the well known 1993 classic SkyRoads by Bluemoon, StellarRoads can be seen as a sort of 2D "demake" of SkyRoads.

Platform: DOS (or DOSBox)
Video modes: VGA, Tandy or CGA
Sound: PC Speaker, Tandy or Adlib

Carefully coded in x86 assembly to run well original hardware, even at only 4.77MHz with CGA. I hope this game will be yet one more game worth enjoying on your retro PCs!

About me

Hello, I'm Raphaël Assénat. I live near Montreal, a city located in Quebec province, Canada. I have two big passions in life: Computers and Electronics. Those two disciplines allows me to quench my desire to create things, my curiosity, and my desire to learn. I'm always working on many projects at the same time and I do not have enough time to do all the projects I'd like. But fortunately, once I begin working on a project, I rarely stop before it's finished.

Programming is my main hobby, and I doing it in C and assembly. Preferably on Linux or Unix platforms. I'm not interested at all by windows programming. What I like the most is when I have the chance to work on projects involving both programming and electronics. For instance, writing software to drive external circuitry designed by me, or even better, programming microcontrollers.

Other than computing and programming, I like to read, play piano and relax by playing RPG video games. (And thus many projects on this site are related to video games...)
