Re: I completed my 7-year quest to play Thieves’ Guild!

The small graphics are fantastic. I don't have the patience to play a game like this.

Re: CosmosEx 3.0 issues - can't get it to work [SOLVED]

Not sure its difficult to look at your network from here. What I sometimes do with networks is make a drawing and write down ip's and draw connections. It looks like something is disconnected or blocking. - change netwok cable - Security in your router allows only selected trusted devices? - NAS sec...

Re: CosmosEx 3.0 issues - can't get it to work [SOLVED]

Euh you talk about wifi but wifi looks disabled on CEx.
The settings above work only whith network cable attached.
You could try with a network cable first. When this works try fixing your wifi settings.

Re: xbios 88 modecode

Ha I understand. Except for the ASM code that I cannot read very well. My goal is not switching but only testing which resolution is used. I use VDI to draw so I don't want to switch. Guess its ok for now just have to test it under different resolutions to be sure. Also I could give the user a warni...

xbios 88 modecode

Hi, I want to be sure my program is started in 640x480x256c on the Falcon. I think it is the best to use Xbios 88 for that? The Vsetmode (Xbios 88) function is a Falcon030 function to set or get the Videomode modecode. I understand that it returns a range of bits called modecode when it is called wi...

Re: CosmosEx 3.0 issues - can't get it to work [SOLVED]

Yes you can ping withouth gateway or DNS because your ip range (adress and mask) is good. But your CEx can't find your server by dns. Something goes wrong with DHCP server it doesn't provide a gateway or dns. Try running cmd ipconfig /all on your W10 pc. You should see DNS and Gateway . Take first D...

network settings on CEx? Fill in DNS and Gateway to your router. Yes all NAS boxes are some Linux distribution. I had trouble connecting to a Windows server. Every time password had to be typed in on CEx config and saved again. I changed to a linux Open Media Vault server and it works stable. Shared...

Re: looking for Video Master animations

Here is one in two movie formats that Videomaster could create VID and FLM. I don't know what the difference is.
They were recorded live from tv I remember. I wanted to capture train animations for a game.
Note that the sound runs longer than the animation for some reason.

Re: ST and Amiga Twitch

Well done Pete that was very entertaining. I watched most of it today. Obviously Bill is a great talker and presenter also seems a nice guy. Never saw him before because he uses Amigas lol.
Maybe show them some STe and Falcon stuff or some of the great hi-res apps.

Re: Jigsaw Puzzle

Messy colour problem is fixed.
There was an unneccesary change in palette at some point. Strange that I didn't see that with NVDI on.
It now works with and withouth NVDI.

Re: Jigsaw Puzzle

Thanks for feedback people.
About the colours the pics are converted with Imagecopy 4 with match palette on. It is to keep the background and buttons visible.
extra todo:
- save and restore system palette
- it should also work without NVDI (but who lives withouth NVDI??)
- Hatari compatibility

Re: Jigsaw Puzzle

Ha Eero thanks for testing. I will install Hatari here on my pc.
btw. my real Falcon has TOS v4.02, GEM 0.3, AES 3.40 and NVDI 4.11
I used only GFA code no ASM inlines.
I remember there were sometimes issues with Reserve and Malloc in GFA.

Re: Jigsaw Puzzle

Interesting yes True Color. I will check these sources out for other projects. This Jigsaw benefits more of high resolution than of more colours.
Also there is some unpacker code that I could use.
