David unavailable

Hi folks, Just to let you know that I will have little or no internet access over the next 2 weeks, so I won't be able to exercise my usual admin role. Hopefully that won't pose any problems. If there is a major problem, Richard still has admin rights: perhaps someone could contact him privately. Sh...

These shaders are quite something, aren't they?

Re: 3D GUI

Hi Ric, Got it up and running: looks very impressive and professional, with all its tooltips etc! I've had only a quick go so far... ...BUT... Trying to load an object seemed to look (only) for BBC files in the "Graphics GUI 18.3.3" folder, which is an older version. Is that a flaw in your default p...

Re: Closure of this forum

Thanks, Eddy - that's my view too. It seems obvious to me that Richard returning to the forum, even with the prospective loss of some members, is better than simply closing it down, with the loss to ALL members. However in the end Richard has to be happy with the arrangement, so as far as I am conce...

Closure of this forum

Richard has provided the following statement: "I fully understand and respect the opinions of the small minority of members who do not wish me to post to the forum, and whilst they hold that view I won't attempt to do so. However it is immensely frustrating to be having to fund the extra storage and...

Request by Richard to return

Copied from the depths of another thread to give it more prominence, and perhaps provoke debate/comment: [Richard] "I would request that " .... "I be allowed to return to being a member of this forum on my own behalf." You would be very welcome to return. [Richard] "I realise that the likelihood of ...

Re: Windows 10 Upgrade and Screen Resolution

Richard did supply additional detail: > I dare say Richard will let me know if I'm talking complete nonsense, > which is quite possible... Not nonsense at all, but if his (native) 3072 x 1728 display was previously reporting 1920 x 1080 to BB4W, as it seems it was, it implies that Windows' 'High DPI...

The changes in this version are as follows: BASIC Interpreter / Run Time Engine The VDU 23,24,n| comma...

Re: Windows 10 Upgrade and Screen Resolution

(On a Windows 10 system) GetSystemMetrics returns 1920 x 1080 for me, as expected, which is the resolution of my primary monitor. That suggests to me that you have a very high res monitor: I wonder if Windows is mapping it down to give a higher "magnification", and that that might have changed betwe...

Re: Assembler alternatives

Hi Repton, I'm not quite sure what your point is, so forgive me if this reply misses it! The assembler needs to match the underlying processor, and since no machines on which you'd want to/be able to run either BB4W or BBC_SDL use the old 8 bit (6502?) processor, it isn't going to work (and the inte...
