Re: How to lock/close thread ?

Enabling comments on youtube is pointless. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that comments invite trouble makers. It's possible to disable them entirely, that's what I do. Problem solved.

Re: Sprite Editor

I tried it on Hatari as I don't have a Falcon anymore and it seems to work if I set video mode: 256 colors, 80 columns, interlace On or double line Off Config file I used: SetProjectPath :=0 LoadFileAndRun :=0 Bell :=0 Scrambler :=1 HardwareBlit :=1 NoClock :=0 FreMemory :=0 MinMemory :=0 SetAesName...

Re: Sprite Editor

I use it on my Hades for many years at 1280x1024 in 256 colors. I currently use it on aranym 1600x1024 in 256 colors. I don't know what you mean by "after screen mode change". I am already in 256 color mode when I start, no mode changes here.

Re: Sprite Editor

You could try programming one yourself with GFA Basic 3.6TT perhaps? On my falc, 256-colour mode doesn't work in the standard editor, but will work when compiled and run from the desktop. Also with gfa basic you need to remember the maximum string variable size is 32 kb(same as ST screen), as it st...

Re: Call for (not so technical) questions -- Atari's product manager 1991-96

I'm curious who made that decisions about what software was included with the machines, especially the awful ST-BASIC.
Were other BASIC interpreters considered, any deals that fell through?

Re: Problem rebuilding Ray's lz77 utility with PureC

The readme states gwen found the final bug that led to v1.3. I finally found the correct combination of PureC options to produce a binary match, at least until I reached the encoder. Ray sent me a link to v1.2 in his reply so I ran a diff on the sources. One line of code in the encoder was changed. ...

Re: Problem rebuilding Ray's lz77 utility with PureC

I just tried the gcc cross-tools and adding the include you suggested. The binary ends up about 90kb larger and the same issue. Compression results do not match Rays' build, but matches my PureC build. Somehow his build manages to compress 3kb smaller. I think I can safely say he didn't actually inc...

Solved: Problem rebuilding Ray's lz77 utility with PureC

I contacted Ray, but he could not remember exactly how he compiled the file lz77.s (v1.3) in the archive. He thought he used an old gcc with the -02 option. However, it appears to be compiled PureC with a modified startup module after looking it over in a dis-assembler. It builds without any warning...
