Re: Atari Screensaver for Firebee

Actually that's what I do if I leave my Falcon on and I need to go off for 10 mins. Any longer, I would just shutdown. Would be nice to have a sleep mode.

Re: Atari Screensaver for Firebee

Been trying to get Twilight to work on the Firebee. Ran great on my Hades060, but seems to have a snag on the FB. I can run the demos just fine, but when it tries to kick in XaAes gives me a BUS error. Is there a setting I need to adjust or add in the XeAes.cnf file? I'm checking my TwiLight setup ...

Nice gesture, Roger. ExtenDOS is probably less relevant nowadays but it sure is a heck of a great piece of software. Releasing the sources is an even nicer gesture. Cheers.

You need to install NVDI. From memory, QED can also print without NVDI, and this can be set somewhere in the settings.

Re: Window refresh problems under Geneva/Neodesk

Is NVDI free? You could simple add NVDI.PRG to you Application .zip (distribution) :) No, its not free, that's why it might be a bad idea to add it to the archive. Indeed. But there's also ENHANCER.PRG, which implements offscreen bitmaps and maybe other NVDI features and may be distributed. I think...

You do it exactly the same: all output goes to the VDI handle you got with v_opnbm(). By the way, you are aware this will require NVDI?
