Tbh, I never understood why some people prefer vbcc so much.
I think it is less of the C compiler than the Devpac compatible assembler which they like.

If I'm correct, this also means, among other things, that users won't be able to upgrade the firmware directly from FF new releases.
In that case, my interest on this one drops to 0.

Re: Atari STe SD card reader on the Extended Joystick Port

Very nice project idea.

Also these days many SPI driven ICs are available and in use. I think there are even more possibilities for hardware gadgets on the EJP.

Re: tim thompson glib synth librarian

Charles, you are aware that you can simply call compiled C from GFABASIC with the C:functionptr() construct?
The C code must just use the stack for parameter passing.

It is probably a waste of time to rewrite it in GFA which will be more awkward due to lack of structs?

Re: STX files on FF/Gotek?

I don't think so. The reliable way is to use appropriate cracks with a Gotek. STX format is for use on PC based emulators, basically a one-way solution.

Re: Atari STe game with all STe enhancements

Lethal Xcess is identical but Amiga users also say "Nothing special for us".
The original disks are dual boot. You can boot ST and Amiga version from the same disk set.

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.
