A Lynx II

Description of the Lynx I and Lynx II mainboards

Lynx I-boxes

Lynx II-boxes


Sprite-Demo 1 (*.O + C-sourcecode, about 8KB): All 8 sprites sharing the same colour index-table.

The 8 tiles used in the demo

Sprite-Demo 2 (*.O + C-sourcecode, about 8KB): Each sprite uses its own colour index-table.

Sprite-Demo 3 (*.O + C-sourcecode, about 13KB): 9 animationphases of a racing car for a 90-degrees-rotation around its center are present. For a complete 360-degrees rotation the sprites will be flipped horizontally and/or vertically. Unfortunately the car pixel width isn't an even number, so there will be some glitches when leaving a quadrant.

The car in 9 animationphases

The image of the car is taken out of a MicroMachines2-Demo.

Sprite-Demo 4 (*.O + C-sourcecode, about 16KB): Using 15 16*16 pixel-wide basic tiles a playfield of 320*320 pixels (= 20*20 tiles) width is created.

The created playfield

Sprite-Demo 5 (*.O + C-sourcecode, about 11KB): Shows the detection of sprite collisions.

Hint: During the game, you can send the playfield to other Lynxes by pressing Option1. To receive the playfield, you should press Option2 on the other Lynxes.


My first Lynx tool: PC2LYNX.EXE Version 1.4, Sourcecode included !

A MS Windows program to transfer *.O or *.COM files from a PC to the Atari Lynx.

Baudrate is now setable by the user. It's possible to reload and send a previous sent file.

With kind permission by Bastian Schick: SENDPC.EXE

A DOS-program for transferring *.O or *.COM files to the Atari Lynx.

The DOS-version of the BLL-Assembler

For your convenience: The DOS-executable of Lyxass

The ROM-image-builder Lynxer 5.0

To be able to load a homebrewed Lynx-program (*.O) from a cartridge the program has to be transformed into a size fitting to the cartridge.

Lynxer adapts the program file(s) to the BLL-cartridge-size of 256 blocks of 1024 bytes.

The sprite-packer built on 08/18/1998

SPRPCK supports BMP-files with 24-bit colours.
