Re: '3d effect' title with angles

these days we ae spoilt but doing anything outside the standard option back in the day definitely would stand out. It can be customised . Also it runs instantly compared to the slow build up on original. Beebug provides a neet source of bbc basic ready programs although some utilise 6502 assembler.

converting BBCW software to BBCSDL

http://freeman69.moonfruit.com/index/4583376551

This website contains software written for BBCW version. Some use more windows calls than others. It would be good to see them converted to run with BBCSDl. as sourcecode is available.
Anyone fancy it?

Re: Rotating blurry thing (BB4W + GfxLib)

BBC Basic ide git support group

On idea is to set up a support group specifically for the ide language code in the git. This attracts different skills to standard basic and help spread the word.
