Out of interest, has anyone tried SwinSID in the interface? Wondering

Oh and fiddling with some code myself, with mixed but generally

Hello,

No SAM activity here at the moment...

My last project (2011 and 2014) for SAM Coupé was an improved remake of
Barry Jones' _Jolly Roger_ (1984), written in Sinclar BASIC for ZX
Spectrum, an old but nice simulation/strategy/adventure game with some
touches of arcade, which I liked.  The port to MasterBASIC worked fine
and looked promising
(http://programandala.net/es.programa.bandera_negra.mbim.html). I used
my MBim preprocessor for MasterBASIC
(http://programandala.net/en.program.mbim.html), which makes things much
easier and lets a cross-development of sorts.  But the bugs in SAM
BASIC's `KEYIN` ruined MBimport
(http://programandala.net/en.program.mbimport.html) the final step of
the toolchain, i.e. importing the final source into SimCoupe.

In 2015 I rewrote the program in Forth with my Solo Forth for ZX
Spectrum 128 (http://programandala.net/en.program.solo_forth.html).
It's called _Black Flag_ and progresses very well
(http://programandala.net/en.program.black_flag.html).

By the way, Solo Forth runs on several ZX Spectrum models and clones
with G+DOS, +3DOS and TR-DOS, and I've considered supporting also the
SAM Coupé with MasterDOS in a future version...  but I think ZX Spectrum
Next (http://specnext.com) will be the _next_ target...

Welcome Simon.

There are probably others who can give you concrete repair advice.
However, I just want to check with you that you are aware that the SAM
has a non-standard SCART connector?  See:
http://www.worldofsam.org/node/350.  I believe the symptoms you
describe can result in this when you are lucky.  It does not need the
RF part in the power supply for SCART.  I'm sure others will chime in
with better advice as they wake up. :-)

 humble apols
 spam is asking for something as well as sending invites from social
 networks is it?


Not if this will happen ONCE (one time, without repeats).

Spaming is hammering thousands of times to multiple people (I got three
invitations for Facebook). Spaming is finding hundreds mails from same
sender when returning from holidays, asking the same question in different
styles, and using teh instead if the, which is not the only reason why
it is very hard to read. Spaming makes people dull and stop them from
working on their projects due to time needed to read the spam/hammering and
find out, what the sender exactly wants, or due to get bored after hammering
about a small bug or asking for same feature over and over and over and
over...
Spaming is asking people to write software, they did not want to write. It
would be okay asking this once, but not for every piece of software he want.

oh shit im sorry i didnt realise i was talking to LCD
your wonderful bmp2scr program has crashed like a thousand times and
the output from it the 29mb tap and tzx files were finally converted
to the sam coupe atom lite interface as i asked you maybe a year ago
or more thanks to andrew colliers fantastic python script though im
sure as heck it wont work on my machine
so spamming is asking you to do something
or asking you why the hell your own software program which you wrote
crashes so many times i see of course a s a pc progrmamer you dont
have to answer questions aboutyour program its a bit like nemesis from
konami on the speccy so what if it was so bad that it wasnt worth the
money dont buy it but dont compalin to us we couldnt care les once we
ahve got your money it slike the internet connection speed no one
actually gets what ethy pay for and they are all dead chuffed about it

Re: who wants some then ?

2011-06-06 Thread Chris Pile

You keep spamming on about a PUSH proportional print routine - why don't you
write your own?  It really isn't that difficult you know.  And why have you got 
it in
your head that PUSH is the way to go with this???

Sure, PUSH can dramatically speed up certain graphic-dumping operations - but
don't assume that it is a panacea for *everything*!  There is a trade-off 
between
the ease of something like LDI and the complications of manipulating the stack 
to
do any PUSH operations - not to mention the potential interrupt headaches when
playing with the stack pointer.

Work out exactly what you want from your routine, then write code to fit the 
bill...

Don't just look for a proportional print routine - or assume someone else will 
write
or give you one - be it stack-based or not!  *Write Your Own!*

Who knows, you might learn something and - more importantly - you won't keep
annoying everyone by constantly spamming *everywhere* asking for one...

Hi,

Thanks, I've found the problem now. What I'd forgotten was that you  
get two FPC stack entries for each parameter - the first describes the  
type (which allows for CALL statements with string arguments) and this  
is what was coming out as 0xc0 every time.

What ,
Hang on will take a look @ Web page

Okay yep , the Bios and Os for NGPSX will be Linux based , but dev kits will
be IPX/TCP Comunication based , enabling mutli user development  Testers to
access latest build , As yet not been able to fully verify/use said kit ,
but soon :)

But as Linux is Open Source then some git is gonna do some bad stuff , but
time will tell ,

Don't get me wrong, I like Linux.  I like Red Hat Linux.  But let us

If you say that you'll make as MUCH money, or even CLOSE from the

With business software, you might make more, but PARTICULARLY with

Has anyone mentioned EFTPOTRM yet? It may have looked good but the game had no
playability. Also Sam Elite was a rip off. Mind you I'm not totally aware of all
Sam games. I never ever saw Lemmings running on the Sam.

I think best game in my opinion has to be Prince of Persia although graphically
it wasn't that great. Defenders of the Earth or Sphera were much prettier.

I'd still love to see a proper Coupe enhanced version of Elite.

I try and Sync newsgroups  then forgets how many emails are in

Well, I've tried, and failed :(.  I ran it through my own little dsk
program which handles dodgy sectors (I'll get around to uploading it one
day), but despite the fact that the sectors that are dodgy are all at
the end (only 16 in total!) the disk is naffed.

It will get a directory ok and some things load, but apart from that its
dodgy - end of file problems  somtimes just hanging the compiler.  

If I get my Sam out off its shelf in the near future I'll try and make a
copy of the disk on that  then run it through the DSK thing (the same
always seems a bit more resilient to [ignorant of?] dodgy disks that
PC's for some reason).

The problem with the backup is that the protection will most definately
be uncatered for.  Hmm.

I tried some of my old games too (the ones I wrote with SCADS), but
alas, all the disks seem to have been got by the MagnetoMonster... ohh
well :os

Really? Which one? (I might actually have it)
Arcade perfect, is it? Does it have the coloured strips? Eh? Eh?!

(and before anyone asks why I didn't think of Chris Pile's excellent
Defender conversion... I can't play it, it's too frustrating, but I love
it anyway. Just like the arcade game :-) )

Gord. (amazed that an off-topic discussion suddenly became so very
on-topic)

Pah! James Curry's Dark Vortex was far better... And Diggory Gray 
produced a fair few fine shooters.

Wow. Guess I missed 'em all... Which was Dark Vortex?

Gord. (perking up all of a sudden, with the mention of decent
shoot-'em-ups)

Dark Vortex was on FRED 62, IIRC. Or was it 60? Um... Whichever one
Wayne Coles did the menu for.

NB. I was speaking to Wayne today, and he says he'll finish Kaboom! when
there's a 32bit version of SIM Coupé to do it on... ;)
