Re: VICE Palette File (vpl) editor.

Mike also has an NTSC AVI from my NTSC-S-Video-VIC-20 and should/may be able to produce a mike-ntsc.vpl from that one... ideally these would be the standard palettes for VICE - maybe I'll open a "feature request" in the VICE-sourceforge. it'd be more useful to find out how exactly the col...

Re: How do I get CC65 to include NO startup code?

oh, actually even with cc65 it is a very good idea to use the standard library as often as possible (usually the generated code will be smaller and faster than doing the same stuff inline) - however, its also a good idea to think twice about what you are using. as said malloc is often not a good ide...

Re: How do I get CC65 to include NO startup code?

Dumbing down cc65 for this kind of use is really like using a hammer to turn a screw. not really. he made a small crt0 which basically removes the heap, and doesnt use the interrupt chain stuff. both of which you dont want to use in a memory constrained environment anyway - i have done the same for...

Re: How do I get CC65 to include NO startup code?

technically, you dont need to recompile anything, just use -t none for no startup code and instead of main() use start(): $ cat test.c void start(void) { asm("inc $d020"); } $ cl65 -o test.bin -t none test.c $ hex test.bin 0000 ee 20 d0 60 (mind you, a lot of the C language relies on the s...

Re: BASAL, an Italian structured BASIC for the VIC

The fact that a "structured" programming language can be implemented using standard basic instructions (as done with BASAL) seems to confirm that there is no real, substantial difference between the two languages, as one is built using the statements set of the other. by that logic there ...

Re: Getting

Pretty much the same is not the same. SDL rendering, window, and full screen management is altogether different. no, it isnt. with no hardware acceleration both would use your OSs software blitting, with acceleration both would use GL. the only difference would be some gluecode, which is really neg...

Re: Tips on moving to Linux?

this thread reminds me a lot of those people who start programming C using cc65 and then draw the conclusion that C is shit =)

Re: Getting "too slow" messages in LINUX VICE

This is Lubuntu 14.04. I'm using VICE 2.4.6 downloaded through Lubuntu's Software Centre. interesting, is that an official repo? must be the first distro that has packages of intermediate versions... :) that's why I compile for SDL and GTK everytime, for all the reasons stated, as it serves me well...

Re: Getting "too slow" messages in LINUX VICE

5. VIC settings, uncheck Hardware scaling to OFF wat? seriously. first you recommend checking for hw acceleration in the OS.... then recommend to disable it in the app? no sense it makes young padawan. its like putting a can of racing fuel on the back seat of your car and then expecting it to fix y...

Re: Tips on moving to Linux?

No hard feelings but the Linux community could be more straightforward.

its not linux - its simply that you are trying to do something that is _not_ straightforward to begin with.

Re: Tips on moving to Linux?

I feel that this illustrated the kind of reason why Linux is not becoming more mainstream.

no, try to do the same thing with windows. good luck.

Re: Tips on moving to Linux?

well, you probably shouldnt be using such a "lightweight" desktop as a beginner.... they are called lightweight for a reason, and often things must be configured using config files. if you use gnome or kde all that stuff will work similar to what you know from windows.

Re: Tips on moving to Linux?

one magic thing about *nixish systems is that there generally is no difference between a "file" and a "device" ... when you can mount an image file, you can also mount the respective media on the physical drive.... eg instead of "image.iso" you just enter "/dev/sdr...
