Re: BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 v1.00a released

I'm really glad to hear about this new release. I think this was definitely a good time for BBCSDL's version number to be increased to 1.0. The list of new features in this version is great, too. I'm especially glad to hear that SDLIDE can now load Acorn-format programs. That's our man Richard. You ...

Re: 《《《 Code a game comp-8-BIT WARS 》》》

If I have time, I might try making something for this competition. If I do, I'll probably write my game for the original BBC Micro. Or if the competition rules don't allow use of emulation (I haven't checked them closely yet), I might instead write a game for Matrix Brandy BBC BASIC.

Re: Is it safe, or good practise, to allocate memory with SYS"malloc"?

Hello DDRM, I've been aware of DIM LOCAL, which is handy, but it's not quite the same as the experience of using malloc() and free(). As you say, and as far as I know, you can only use it to allocate memory within a function or procedure, and you can only free it by returning from the function or pr...

Is it safe, or good practise, to allocate memory with SYS"malloc"?

Hello, I'm thinking of converting a program that I previously wrote in C, into BASIC for BBCSDL. Without going into much detail, this program uses malloc() and free() quite a lot. As far as I know, BBC BASIC doesn't have a built-in mechanism for freeing memory that's been allocated, for example with...

Re: DaiHard(Spirit of Christmas, BB4W game)has finished in 3rd place in a Christmas theme game programming contest!!!

Congratulations! It's a bit off topic, but thinking about text adventures has made me think - maybe it'd be fun to try making a visual novel in BBC BASIC. The way I see it, visual novels are a bit similar to text adventures, except there's pictures and music/sound effects that go with the text, and ...

Re: Xmas Demo II (2018)

I always liked this demo. I'm glad that it's still available for 64bit versions of BBCSDL.
Happy new year everyone!
