I originally explained the reason why this program requires you to enter the number instead of notes is because of screen width limitation. Until I did some more research into VIC chip's features and found out that it could output in any resolution. So I couldn't let that out of my mind and spent an entire day editing the source code...
This mod basically takes an advantage of that and VIC-20's expanded memory behavior that doubles the color RAM's size to 1024 bytes.
Changes from the original version:
- 25x28 tiles screen size instead of usual 22x23. Enough to display 16 pattern rows at a time.
- Notes in pattern editor are now displayed in note names instead of its hex values.
- Holds are displayed in continuous blocks instead of ++ and tie notes are displayed inverted.
- New color palette that doesn't hurt my eyes.
However, please note that this is only a GUI mod and no new features has been added. You still need to input the notes like the original version (notes are entered by inputting 0-B, ties are entered by inputting 9-C into octave, etc.)
Okay, time to go back to voting wc13 entries and studying for midterm exam
