Great!

This corrects a problem of loading images on the screen using lbytes.

I have seen that an entry called "JmenuItem1" appears in the File menu.

Tell you that I tried the emulator in Haiku (BeOS) and it works
correctly in OpenJDK, but some characters are not shown in the menus.
for example, special characters such as the opening of interrogation or
exclamation, the letter ñ or the ellipses (...) that indicate that this
menu option will open another menu.

Thank you for your work.

Hi Dilwyn,

thanks a lot for that. I know that I should be on the forum, but I don't 
agree with their terms of use.


(which is also why I'm not on any social media)

Re: [Ql-Users] SMSQ/E 3.35

2020-02-07 Thread Brian Kemmett via Ql-Users
Hi Wolfgang.. Just downloaded and installed the latest SMSQE... A 
question.. When I ask the version (Ver$(1)) it prints "3.34" and not 
"3.35", even though the download file is named smsqe/335/SMSQE.bin.zip.

I do have the right file?

Interestingly, on QPC2 it reports 3.34 although the SMSQE.bin file is
slightly (20 bytes) larger. But the Q68 version reports 3.35.

Speaking of the Q68, it appears that the SER_ commands like SER_BUFF
etc. still don't work. I discovered some months ago that this is caused by
an incorrectly named Thing ('ser_prt' while the SBASIC commands search for
'ser_par_prt'). I'm not sure whether I've reported it here (I did so in the
QL forum but Wolfgang doesn't read that). So far I haven't been able to fix
this myself as SMSQMake stops with an 'invalid name' error at line 11330
when I try to build it.

Another issue I've run into is the TCP device which, unlike UQLX, doesn't
report EOF when the other end has closed the connection, you'll just keep
waiting forever for input. (Yes, I've been doing a few networking
experiments lately, you'll see the results soon :-) ).

Well so far for the bug reports, thank you Wolfgang for keeping SMSQ/E
alive!

Hi Brian, Jan

Strangely enough, I can't reproduce the version problem here.

To be extras sure, I downloaded the version uploaded yesterday and 
tested them of Q68 and QPC.


All files should have the date of 07.02.2020 06:41 and, at least here, 
correctly identify as 3.35.

Speaking of the Q68, it appears that the SER_ commands like SER_BUFF
etc. still don't work. I discovered some months ago that this is caused by
an incorrectly named Thing ('ser_prt' while the SBASIC commands search for
'ser_par_prt'). I'm not sure whether I've reported it here (I did so in the
QL forum but Wolfgang doesn't read that). 


I don't remember seeing it, but thanks - that'll be fixed in a new version.

Load the menu extensions first, then it will work. I'll probably remove 
that anyway, but I'll have to check first if I use other parts of the 
menu extensions.

report EOF when the other end has closed the connection, you'll just keep

On what machine? (I presume SMSQmulator and will check).


Well so far for the bug reports, thank you Wolfgang for keeping SMSQ/E

Luckily enough, I'm not alone in that. Simply building SMSQ/E is now a 
fairly well automated process (SMSQEMake - when it works...) and making 
all of the new version files is, too - see the file "new_versions_bas" 
in the extra directory - it even makes the html files (I once even 
had the idea of building an ftp client, so that the upload to my site 
could be made automatically, but never actually started that,the main 
reason being that I know next to nothing about networking, let alone the 
ftp protocol).


What is much more important than the build process is the people who 
make changes to SMSQ/E or find (and report!) bugs.


Keep on QLing! (Somehow "keep on SMSQ/Eing" doesn't have the same ring 
to it).

[Ql-Users] SMSQmulator 2.28

2020-02-07 Thread Wolfgang Lenerz via Ql-Users



¡Hola!



This corrects a problem of loading images on the screen using lbytes.


Yeah, amongst others... I discovered that by pure accident, when I was 
trying out the (very nice) adventure game written by P. van Peebles.


This must have been in there for quite some time, I wish somebody had 
told me about it earlier.


Speaking of great adventure games, even the Pawn now works great with 
SMSQmulator, Tobias Fröschle kindly saw to that.




I have seen that an entry called "JmenuItem1" appears in the File menu.


Ooops. That's for something I may introduce in a future version.



Tell you that I tried the emulator in Haiku (BeOS) and it works
correctly in OpenJDK, but some characters are not shown in the menus.
for example, special characters such as the opening of interrogation or
exclamation, the letter ñ or the ellipses (...) that indicate that this
menu option will open another menu.



You're the first person I know that uses BeOS or it's descendants. Nice!

I'm afraid that there's not much I can do about the characters not 
showing. Normally Java should use standard unicode (if there is such a 
thing).


Can you normally display these characters on your system?

It's not the fault of OpenJDK, as that's what I use here.

Wolfgang


Thank you for your work.
