SkoolKit 4.0 Released

posted by TecSoft


SkoolKit is a set of command line utilities for disassembling Spectrum software, into ASM format or into a bunch of HTML pages.

Here are some of the things that SkoolKit can do:
— disassemble SNA snapshots, Z80 snapshots, SZX snapshots, and raw binary files
— do a reasonable job of distinguishing code from data by means of the default static code analysis algorithm
— do a much better job of distinguishing code from data by using a profile, trace or map produced by Fuse, SpecEmu, Spud, Zero or Z80
— automatically label routine entry points
— automatically annotate every routine entry point with a list of the callers (hyperlinked in the HTML output)
— create hyperlinks between routines and data blocks that refer to each other (by use of the #R macro in annotations, and automatically in the operands of CALL, JP, DEFW and LD instructions)
— create still or animated PNG/GIF images from graphic data in the snapshot
— from a single source file, produce ASM files with or without bug fixes, and with or without unused bytes removed
— produce a 'perfect' snapshot from a TAP/TZX file (i.e. a snapshot of the RAM as it would be immediately after the tape has loaded)
— convert a binary file into a TAP file containing a BASIC loader

Brand New Game: Ninjajar! by The Mojon Twins

posted by TecSoft


Help Ninjajar finding his girl in this video-adventure-arcade-platformer-whatever. You can jump, punch, jump and punch, break blocks, talk to people, talk to animals, buy things, get coins, solve puzzles, push levers… There’s lots to do if you want to see your girl again. Just write down the password the game shows before entering each level. If you die or you perform badly, you can try again using the latest password.
