Amstrad CPC programmation in C language

-

For those who would be interested in programming applications for Amstrad CPC in C language, you have at least 3 possibilities :

  • Z88dk v1.9 with cpcrslib (Amstrad CPC library for Z88dk) : several programs including an Amstrad CPC+ demo (Phat) have been programmed with Z88dk already
  • Small Device C Compiler v2.9.0 : Contiki and the pheelone demo has been compiled with SDCC, any other program that someone would know ?
  • CCZ80 v2.07 by Emilio Guerrero. This compiler can be used for developping Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum and MSX programs on windows (command line application, with a GUI included). Gommy, Defensor Medieval a ZX Spectrum game has been programmed with CCZ80. There are 2 Amstrad CPC librairies usable for CCZ80 : cpcrslib (adapted from cpcrslib for Z88dk) and sprutilcpc ( included with CCZ80), but no Amstrad CPC program seems to have been programmed yet with CCZ80. If you have, let me know please.

From Scratch, an Amstrad CPC demo by Vanity

-

From Scratch is a french Amstrad CPC demo by the Vanity demo group (Hicks and Beb) with sound by Tom & Jerry, a 6 mn multipart demo needing a CRTC 1 to run due to hardware tricks, also disable "Plus PPI emulation" if used with the WinAPE emulator (Go Settings then General).

Though you can see a video of From Scratch on Youtube, it will be better to use a real Amstrad CPC or an emulator.
