Re: v_bar() with custom fill pattern (Falcon)

It works for me to, I tried it. I don't have problems with the built in patterns, only the custom one set with vsf_udpat(). It does not look like your test app tests the user defined pattern, only the built in ones. The user defined pattern by default is fuji symbol, if you don't alter it. If I call...

Re: Dreaming of a Next Gen Atari - one can Dream!

Calamus is coded with PureC with a modified startup module. Very evident if dropped into a dis-assembler and compared to another PureC app with standard startup module. PureC and gcc have incompatible object file formats. Partially compiled with gcc and missing files? I'm not buying that excuse. He ...

I'm not sure what he purpose would be of very (relatively speaking) powerful hardware if we're only using old software. Once a system is snappy enough in use, more horsepower is of no benefit. Normally more powerful hardware allows more complex software but if no-one's writing it... As a minimum I'...

Re: Dreaming of a Next Gen Atari - one can Dream!

Huh ... you got me there :) I really would like to see PDF maker to be usable on the FireBee. But I would say that part of the problem is buggy NVDI or lack of documentation? You would know that. And the other way would be that someone try to patch SpeedoGDOS as NVDI is patched. But only one person...

v_bar() with custom fill pattern (Falcon)

Having no success with v_bar() and vsf_udpat(). Always get an empty white box using hatari set as Falcon in 16 color mode. I also tried vr_recfl() and got same white box. This was reported to me by someone with a real Falcon, so its not hatari. If I restart hatari as an STE same code works and I see...

Re: Funny Paint

I tested funny paint in Hatari v2. I load ST low degas file, save it out as *.fun, clear the image, reload the *.fun file I just saved. Seems ok to me. I then repeat the same test in ST medium. Again seems ok. I did notice in st high it seem to write junk to the palette entries in the file, but st h...

Re: Where do people dissapear to?

I have tracked down several atari book authors and in all cases they said they sold the rights. Essentially the same thing, completed the project, got paid and moved on to the next project. It seems software authors do the same, often leaving their work degrade on a floppy in the closet, or actually...

I don't mind outdated websites, at least they are trying to make their stuff available to us. I called B&C about 5 weeks ago and he told me he was swamped with 8 bit orders from Christmas season, he also told me he only listed 8 bit stuff on ebay and not any of the ST stuff. I don't want to get...

I do ok on ebay as I only buy from sellers with good high-res photos, and I only bid what's it worth to me, if I lose I just do without. Emulation will suffice.

Unfortunately GemView will only load the first frame. zView will animate them, but its system requirements prevent it from working on a plain ST.

I googled TOS 2.07 and found this: http://www.verycomputer.com/10_dff73afade8004ec_1.htm (first post)

Another idea. Is it possible the official TOS sources has a v2.07 build option?

It runs in monochrome too. Also, if you set desk accessory option it asks about low or medium resolution, but I cannot get it run in medium. Saving and loading images is very strange.
