Re: BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 version 1.08a released

As per conversation, I did completely miss the solution that was mentioned here for Windows Version of BBCSDL. Running it within Command Prompt seems to have 0 failures. Very cool. Thanks for letting me know the launch issues were solved Richard ! I made this BBCSDL.BAT file in NOTEPAD and saved it ...

Re: Animated snowman

I can see how you used BB4W to produce the different frames, but how did you combine all the frames into a video? Did you just use a screen-capture utility or did you generate and output the frames to file - in which case I'd be most interested in how you did that. First I made a mount for my Ipad....

Re: Image display question

This code is more or less taken straight from the help file for BB4W, which probably means that it originated with Richard. It works for me. It does require the gdiplib library to be installed. Thanks. I appreciate the assistance. I have decided to use BBCSDL for creating the animations I am doing....

Animated snowman

Here is a snowman roasting marshmallows. I made with some drawings that have been cut out and pictures snapped and used BBC Basic to animate.

Color extraction on windows screen

Hello I have found a way to translate the LB code I found using LBB Pane in the editor, and I passed the data into BBC4W. Unfortunately, I am unable to get access to the library "LBLIB.BBC" in the groups forum I would ask if Richard would be willing to give me a new link to the library. (or maybe sh...

Re: Image display question

To reiterate: "in BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 (all editions) *DISPLAY can display BMP, JPG, GIF and PNG images". Thanks Richard. I did see that earlier. And it is noted for future use on the pi3 and on my MAC. My old MacBook Pro, does need a task like this and it can display Investing.com and uses an old...

Re: Image display question

DISPLAY can only display Windows BMP images, so you could convert the PNG image to BMP format first? Unfortunately, when you capture a windows screen using the Windows capture tools, the image is captured in a .png image. I looked to see if I could change the save image options and I couldn't find ...

Re: Stock Market Calculator with projected sells

OH cool ! Now you just saved me tonnes of work. And with the tool David Williams just linked to me for .png display, I believe I have the rest of the tools I need to do it just with one program on one device. Awesome!!
Thanks Richard.
