  • Agon Light Joystick Test 1

    I’m working on getting a joystick port working on my Agon Light. They don’t come with joystick ports, but there is a set of GPIO pins that can be read through assembly. Here’s my setup, the Agon Light is in the white box, my trusty PowerPlay Cruiser joystick from the 90s is plugged into a…

  • Agon Light C Programming – An Introduction

    Instead of bashing away in BASIC, it’s possible to do some coding in C on the Agon Light. Let’s find out how in this introduction to an ongoing series where I figure out the Agon hardware and work on a game. I have no idea what game I want to make, and I’m not entirely…

  • Agon Light C Development

    How to write code for the Agon Light (and Console8) using C instead of BASIC, under Linux. It might work with WSL2 in Windows, and it might work on a Mac. By the end of this you’ll end up with a fairly standard Linux C programming environment with a Makefile and all the usual trimmings.…

  • FORTH – Better than BASIC?

    Let’s look at FORTH, the obscure stack based programming language that nobody seems to use. Or do they?
