The Haujobb Amiga Framework, Happy New Year release, 01.01.19
What is this about?
C/Asm framework, targeted at Amiga AGA/060, integrated with Rocket, working natively on Windows, with full source and docs.
This is the framework that we came up with to develop our demos, like Beam Riders (http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=71976).
Why should I care?
- Did you ever wanted to code an Amiga demo?
- Are you a coder that doesn't know the Amiga, yet?
- Do you also think that not everything should be coded in Assembler?
- Want to know how we do our demos in Haujobb?
- C sounds interesting?
Then this release should be of interest to you! We are giving you all the details of how to do it.
Yes, quite a bit of it, and including a quickstart section.
