Re: A couple abandonware apps

I copied a few to devdocs, the ones I felt would assist Atari developers. ;)

Re: Face Value Guide

I would suggest http://dev-docs.atariforge.org/files/ti ... of_gem.pdf
Although the language used is 'C' the concepts and system calls are the same for GFA. It is how I learned GEM coding and I use GFA.

Re: A couple abandonware apps

My HYP2HTML output generates one massive page instead of converting all the nodes into tons of small files. It didn't occur to me that there was online tools for this. If such a conversion maintains the links, that would be awesome. Will do some tests. I had no luck with the PDF stuff you suggested ...

Re: A couple abandonware apps

The HCP tool supplied with ST-Guide can decode then back into ASCII stg format. However, I have found that HCP is buggy and seems to fail on large HYP files. I wrote my own decoder that will decode the ones HCP will not. Currently it converts them to HTML. I suppose it could be adapted to write PDF....

I'd be perfectly happy with a MiNT-Net only solution. Like an ether.xif if possible. So it don't break the GEMDOS HD. My singleTOS days are long gone. ;)

That might be an older version of the site.

I found this, perhaps the current version:

Re: Aranym Network under OSX 10.12

Thorsten, I have spent considerable time using the latest snapshot and not one hiccup with the mouse grab or the bpf_helper login prompt. I thought I was going to be stuck with v0.9.16 forever. Thanks again for caring on these issues. :cheers:

Re: Atari Themed Clock face - chimes, alarms and mouse fix

I've seen those extra calls now that you mention it, but all I have is german nvdi 5 docs and no example code. I just wrote them off as not usable. Would be nice if NVDI could do that in one call. I forgot to look at toshyp. :lol: Maybe I try some tests sometime with that vdi call.

Ha ha... yeah smart indeed. I can't even wrap my head reducing a 24-bit RGB to a 3-bit planar graphics. Thanks for explaining... will try it and see if it works for me. I think the nvdi new raster function will be able to do it as well, as it is more powerful than the ROM version. I don't think I e...

Re: Atari Themed Clock face - chimes, alarms and mouse fix

Using zView libraries is smart, no need to reinvent loading routines. You can see results here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGmxM1JjE1w The first blit is vrt_cpyfm() with a 1-plane mask followed by a second blit with vro_cpyfm().

AFAIK, The VDI raster function that comes in the ROM does not do that.


Yes and no. It requires much more work. It takes 2 blits to achieve the transparent effect. vrt_cpyfm() and vro_cpyfm() are used. I did it in my Boing demo.

Re: Hades and 060 rev6

If you flex the motherboard you risk damage. Its the surface mounted sockets around the CPU that easily become cold soldered. I don't know how to overclock it, but you can email Medusa and try asking. Fredi will either tell you or advice against it. ;)

The mouse grab seems ok now, well done. Fullscreen option isn't working either since updating to Sierra. I suspect SDL issue as well, but that I can live without.
