iirc, the program onblock isn't that big. so you could just use the hex code of it with the exechex command.

edit, and the code is included in the file.

I am so glad that you have strings for drawng tilemaps! That will save a huge amount of ram!

Just to let ya know, the project isn't dead. It's just... uh... sleeping.

Seriously, though.

I haven't gotten a good signature on the app yet, and I've been alerted to a few more bugs that I need to iron out before I can make any kind of release. Not that the application doesn't work in its current state, but I just believe that it needs a little bit more work since the next release is going to be just one or two more away from an official one.

This application will be the first in a long while where it actually has a proper signature on it.

As for bugs and stuff, I don't really know the state of the project anymore since I've been keeping to myself about its progress and what I left hanging in the code... in addition to the fact that I haven't worked on the application in about a month or two.

So this is where it stands: I'd like you (whoever) to test out Celtic 3.09p and report any abnormalities in any of the listed functions. Keep in mind that some of the functions that are listed in the ReadME are not implemented yet, so I'd like you to test them all just to see where I stand in the code.

This would be doing me a huge favor.

[EDIT] Oh, now I remember. I think I tried to implement onblock but I never quite finished it, so don't test that out if it's listed in there.

Also, I'd like to know how I'd go about implementing ERRH for handling BASIC errors from within my application. Modding the program to fit Celtic III didn't seem to work, nor did it seem to cause a catastrophic error, so I don't know what's going on. If you want to inspect the code yourself, it's found near the bottom of the source file "_CFN.z80"

well, I just send it to my calc without any trouble, so the signature is good :biggrin:

I also tried a xlib program with this installed instead of xlib, and it worked correctly, so at least it doesn't outright crash upon using it.

I'll give some more (better) testing in the morning.


nice to see this worked on again :lol:


edit: it doesn't work with the xlib demo because the demo uses '0' to acces pic0 instead of '10' to acces it. (changing the 0 to 10 fixes it tho, but it doesn't make celtic really compatable with xlib)

Does the Celtic III tile string/tile map routine allow for smooth-scrolling? If not, that would be a nice feature to have, if it's not hard to implement.

I ran into a problem involving Celtic III, and it may relate to the parser hook and the commands used to extract grouped items individually. I've noted that one of the calcs crashed after having done this manually and then attempting to run that program. Could someone try to explore the exact conditions that might make this happen, or whether or not what happened was just a freak accident?

I tried to run 2 programs with Celtic III 0.9P instead of xLIB:
-Artistic (it was a disaster) Sad
-Multilevel Grayscale (worked fine until I tried to render my image: the lines stop to be drawn after 2/3 of the screen are filled) :confused:

I atteched 2 screenies:
-wabbit0.gif is with Celtic III
-wabbit1.gif is with xLIB

By the way, I launched the programs with and without DoorCS and I got the same results. And also, the xLIB nice curved boxes have right angles with Celtic III.

Can't tell what the problem is unless I have a run of code that shows what's going on when those BASIC programs are being run. If you can, try attaching a copy of or linking to a copy of each of the programs that you tested with. It's very important that you match the version of the programs that you tested with the one that you link to.

There seems to be a clipping problem with the line routine for the Multilevel Grayscale one (from what I could tell in the screenshot).

Eh ... heh. Yeah. Clipping... I was hoping I'd never have to look at that beast ever again...

But it *is* worth a mention that there are known problems with sprite clipping and I essentially cheated with the line routine by using the romcall. As for the checkerboard pattern, I can offer one consolation prize: There exists a command in Celtic III that will draw that pattern nearly instantly if the called for program would use it:

Code:
identity(8,"AA55AA55AA55AA55",0,0,0,1)
(cut out all those zeroes and the one to not update the LCD)

I know... this doesn't fix the problem. If I get to it, the problems *should* be fixed. I'd still like a link to a copy of the programs just to have something to test out whenever I get a chance.

One thing I discovered after I released Artistic: If you put in a DispGraph right before the 1:real(0), that will stop it from destroying Pic1 after you install xLIB or something else used the graphscreen.

It might help, but I'd guess not. It's worth a shot though.

Can't you just release an update on ticalc.org?

Talking about xLIB compatibility, can't you just use the sources from the xLIB app to do it? It would save you a lot of programing and time.

Something tells me this is much easier said than done.

In a word : No.

(1) The source of xLIB is unavailable.
(2) In speaking with the author of xLIB, it's been found that if I had access to the source, the code it would produce would be too large to cram into Celtic III.

On another note, and if you haven't noticed already, I've been taking a break from working on Celtic III. So you're not going to hear much more about its progress until I decide I want to put my other project down for a little bit.

Don't know why, but the xLIB demo that comes with xLIB doesn't work with CelticIII, nor does OTBP Assembler++...

I think for xLIB there is a clipping problem with the matrix map data. As for OTBP Assembler++... I have no idea. Those are my thoughts, not completely sure and all... :ninja:

I wasn't planning on picking up this project again for quite a while, but a couple of problems got me to working on it for just a bit more over the weekend. This release is a fix for det(21...) and a problem with Celtic III incorrectly stripping the decimal part from the input float. The fix cost a measly 5 bytes and there's about 1.4K worth of app space left to use for any further development.

EDIT: I believe I've also changed the real(5) command to catch any invalid inputs at some point a few weeks ago. Let me know if the problem's been corrected or if it even still works.
