Re: VICE Palette File (vpl) editor.

That's some nice bit of work, Ray! I have already uploaded it to our group Dropbox, have it callable from Notepad++, and have begun using it for palette work. Very simple to operate -- actually, it's as easy as it could be, and the color grabber is a nice touch! I love the file size. A great exampl...

Re: VICE Palette File (vpl) editor.

Thanks, that was whole idea for this, to make editing the palette as simple a possible.

VICE Palette File (vpl) editor.

Re: Hiding messages in strings.

Press 'T' for every character back to, the 'H" (in this case 18 times). Press CTRL+0 to exit reverse mode. F...

Re: Joystick port II with sprites demo.

I thought I did say that I was using CBM Prg Studio... I must've missed that. It may be slower, but I prefer a -1 at the end of the data or something similar as an exit clause so I don't have to count as I run out of fingers quickly... You have toes don't you? Just kidding. :lol: I'd usually switch...

Re: Joystick port II with sprites demo.

How the heck did you type in line 63999? That's almost 5 screen lines, the C64 will only accept 2 screen lines. I could understand if you had a lot of keywords that could be abbreviated but that's all numbers. For the msb logic you could use: msb = -ff * (xaxis > 255) And when reading and poking dat...

Re: Basic communication with serial port via vice

The keyword GET can only be used in a running program, BASIC won't allow you to just type it by itself.
