Re: How to use a Library

Hi John,

The hint is in the "@lib$+"!

Re: How to use a Library

Hi Hinkleyj, By default @lib$ points to the LIB folder which is in the BBC Basic installation - that's where libraries should be by default, too. I don't think SQLite is one of the "standard" libraries, is it? You will need to find a copy, and then put it somewhere - ideally in the LIB folder. Note ...

Re: Error

Hi Peppos, There was some discussion of setting up multiple threads which could run on different cores: if you want to pursue that I suggest you have a look though the backups of the two old forums. I should warn you it's not too pretty, and involves assembler code. The speedup is likely to be less ...

Re: UNderstanding Envelope

Agreed: I don't think you'll be able to change the waveform using ENVELOPE. Have you looked at the HQSOUND library? INSTALLing that, and then choosing voice 1, might give you what you need? Failing that you might need to re-write the wavetable, to generate the waveform you want. I haven't tried doin...

Re: My simple GUI library/functions

Thanks, Patrick - that looks like a lot of work in that library, and some nice examples of its use! The programs looks very smart, so I can see it being a useful option for people. The problem with using other people's code is always knowing what is available and how to do it: would you consider pro...

Re: Graphics problem (steam, pc)

Hi Patrick,

I agree it looks suspicious, but I'll give him a chance to redeem himself...

...though I hadn't spotted the original post was so long ago...

Best wishes,

Re: Graphics problem (steam, pc)

Hi John,

You don't say what game you are referring to, or whether it is written in BBC Basic: if not, this is probably not the right forum to get help.

Best wishes,

Re: Closing down the wiki

Hi Richard, I agree it's a very valuable resource, and it would be a shame to lose it. Obviously part of its value is in the ability of other members to contribute to it directly, but might a partial solution to be to lock it to amendment by others, and to have any changes submitted to you for appro...

Re: Combined forums for BBC Basic and BBC Basic for Windows

Thanks for the kind words, Ray. I too hope a shared forum will work out well, and that perhaps some of those who have not chosen to be members of Richard's "cross-platform forum" will reconsider, and offer their support on this one. At least one of those has played a key role in helping with the "mi...
