Re: GFA Basic Graphmode Function

Normally those addesses are the same. You have to allocate separate memory space with certain addres restrictions and use XBIOS 5 to configure them.

Note that is going to be offtopic here. Please start a new thread instead.

Re: GFA Basic Graphmode Function

Using the actual logical or physical frame buffer is the standard way of doing. Unless it is used for special cases such as preparing background graphics in which RC_COPY is a lot easier to use than GET and PUT which only work on the screen.

Re: GFA Basic Graphmode Function

Unless lp provides new commands with his updated GBE, these are the options you have with plain GFABASIC.
You will have to use customtailored machine code to get more speed.

Re: GFA Basic Graphmode Function

Yes, that's the way to do it. For those without experience, in the mask, leave all pixels that should be visibile later in color 0. All pixels that should be visible should be in color 15 for ST-LOW or color 1 for ST-HIGH. (Basically all bitplanes enabled) Take note that RC_COPY can be slightly fast...

Re: GOEX for ST in the making

I think Hxc will be a non-issue.

If the hardware is as similar to the Gotek, HxC will probably run without any changes and Jeff will do it.

I prefer to have choices on the software market.

Side note: many FF users don't even use HFE format but simply use .ST or .ADF.

The Medway Boys Protector III also crashes on a real STE with TOS 2.06de. This thing is buggy in any case. I always just replace it with something else.

I have uploaded recompiled versions yesterday (26 Feb, the date of the archive is also visible in the list). Maybe you want to try them again. I agree ST-ZIp is outdated and slow.

I will try the updates over the weekend. The versions linked by Vincent seemed to work for ST use so it is only a matter of replacing them in other distributions.

Re: My first GFA program "lzip"

A very nice tool. While looking for an ST-Zip alternative that works under TOS, I discovered that the version of zip.ttp shipped with lzip is for 020 and up, and not for 000. + it requires an FPU. It would be nice to also provide a 000 capable zip utility, as already a Coldfire alternative is in pla...

Well Lzip ships with a zip.ttp that requires an FPU. No chance on a basic Falcon with that one, too bad.

Re: Alternative ZIP packers/depackers for Atari?

Unpacking VanillaMint or something like that was main reason indeed. And on a Falcon without CosmosEX SCSI a user cannot simply use a neat "ope as folder" feature. I agree that would be a nice solution. The ZIP.TTP and UNZIP.TTP with Lzip and Qextract seem to work on a Falcon setup with TO...

I didn't provide any while testing, I just wanted to display the basic CLI help under TOS. So you just run unzip, without any arguments, and that crashes already? That's strange. What shell/command.prg are you using? I have to recheck. I tried Hatari autoexec (which might cause issues with TTPs) bu...

Could you try with a smaller zip file, whether the tools work at all?

Thank you, I completely forgot about lzip. Are official release sites available? Or only those forum references?

I personally don't like to have software releases embedded into forum posts alone.
