Without context, we are only data.

Re: Happy New Year :-)

I'll stick with 320 x 200 with a nice border ;-) other resolutions don't look the same.

Seriously, I don't do them.

Regards,

Shaun.

Re: Williamsburg Adventure 64

Sorry I don't visit here often as I'm mainly on REMOVED, so caught the replies late. @shaunb gotcha. yeah my coding is very messy. that piece wasn't part of the game though. Ah, it all works ;) 'Fast' or 'optimised' BASIC can be messy so don't worry about it. The important thing is to meet the requ...

Re: Array Manager

Hi Marc, The Wheels OS allows for SuperRAM + REU RAM as a possibility, it means that you can run Wheels in REU memory which frees up all of the SuperRAM for the few applications that require the SuperRAM (for instance, geoZIP and The Wave). Would this array manager work with REU RAM and SuperRAM if ...

Re: Flipping the bits.

Here's a program listing that demonstrates roughly how the C bitwise operators << and >> work: 0 print "{clear}";:gosub 1000 10 input "enter number to shift";x 30 input "how many bits to move";y 40 input "< to shift left or > to shift right";a$: print 50 print "{left}";x;"in binary is: "; 60 let b=x...

Flipping the bits.

Hi all, I was doing some VIC-20 programming earlier this week and someone suggested that I should add a custom character set to my program. As I'm lazy, I did a quick char set basically reducing the size of most characters by one pixel wide and high, but then I realised that I needed a reverse set o...

Re: DVT thread

I have a few DTV units so thanks for this.

I should really do something with them :-) Maybe now I'm not working six days a week, I will... but whether working less will lead to more free time is questionable.

Regards,

Shaun.

Hi Sixteen Plus [snip] i.e: 1 L=0 2 L=L+1 3 IF L=42 THEN PRINT "GOODBYE CRUEL WORLD!":END:ELSE PRINT "LIFE IS PRETTY GOOD!" 4 GOTO 2 There are a couple of work-arounds in BASIC 2, my favourite being ON-(condition) GOTO x: ... like: 1 L = 0 2 L = L+1 3 PRINT "LIFE IS PRETTY GOOD!":ON-(L<42)GOTO 2:PRI...

Re: C compiler for the C64 and other 65xx machines.

Now I have slightly improved my BASIC programming skills, I'll have a look again into C for the C64. I think the Mine Sweeper program that I wrote should be easy enough to convert to C and I'd be happy enough if I could manage it as I'm not 1337.

Regards,

Shaun.
