Why not have it?

Apparently there are some uses for it. Serial ports send bits of information and I am sure somebody could use it in other ventures. What would a person who does not even code anymore use it for N ? Why would somebody go to the trouble of making one if it did not provide some kind of an advantage? Hm...

PROBLEMS

Apparently the 1144 chip is sending multiplexed signals to the port status pins. The values returned by INP(289) are not integers and are sometimes just wrong! The readings should be combinations of: 8, 16, 32, 64 and 128. Some readings are 7 and 127 instead. There could be connection or power suppl...

Remember the squish idea. You may need it someday, especially for pictures of people.

There are other tutorials and code that does not work at all here. That was only one small example of a minor few mistakes. Try the FAST bitmap loader in one of the Interrupt tutorials. It does not work at all!

Even if Lee had the background option, ALL of the background would be changed. However, with 256 color attributes, you can always change parts to other color shades using different attribute numbers. PRINT will still have the default black attribute 0 behind the text however. I have an interrupt Fun...

Most newer programmers do not DIM all of their variables, especially if they are just experimenting. There is absolutely nothing wrong with type suffixes. Look in any book on Basic!

Now the image should look stretched. To fix that edit your bitmap by changing the height of it in Photoshop. Set the height to 83% and width to 100%. This will squish the bitmap image, but the image will look perfect in SCREEN 13. If you want to learn how to BSAVE the image and be able to center you...

If you can get more than a single line, then we can worry about the padder. How large is the bitmap? I cannot be over 320 X 200. Program problems: 1) Width and Height are Long variables so use & instead of % no matter what the bitmap size is. 2) FOR y% = iHeight TO 0 STEP -1 has no type suffix for i...

True Mac. I just don't see a great need for not using the brackets. I don't want to have to troubleshoot those kind of problems. The brackets just keep anything odd from happening.

Did you save it as an 8 bit bitmap? Paint is not the greatest kind of image editor. You should be able to set the palette's BPP to 8 in Photoshop. Your code is from here I gather and it should work for screen 13. Does it load at all? If it is skewed, the bitmap needs a padder. Ted Nodvelt is a well ...

That would work a lot better using strings for variables.

DRAW "U" + A$

Where A$ is a string number. To convert any number to a string use the STR$(number) function:

A$ = STR$(number)

DRAW does not care about spaces so you do not have to trim it.

Do you want a program that you cannot write? Do you want the code? Go to QbasicStation.com and look in Member files / Utilities for BSAVER.ZIP if you are using SCREEN 12 or 13. Nodvelt cannot sum it up better than that unless he posts the entire procedure! Give me a break! He is gone, but if you hav...

I dunno Mac

You start playing with fire and your example is not the best either, but neither was mine looking back. IF INP(889) AND 128 > 0 THEN What will happen there? It will run every time the port has a reading, because 128 is always more than 0. Also it could be confused with a conditional operation instea...

The color palette actually has 64 ^ 3 color shades for some QB screens. What do you want to do? In SCREEN 12 you can only make 16 colors and 13 can make 256. Any color attribute can be changed using the PALETTE or OUT statements in QB. I prefer OUT because of the math involved using PALETTE: OUT &H3...

You MUST use parenthesis when using the AND, OR and XOR numerical operators in an IF statement as below. These operators are not the same thing as normal IF - AND - OR statements: IF (INP(889) AND 128) THEN PRINT "Valid data" The evaluation will be wrong if you do not use it! The code looks for a bi...

Great! Now, do you understand what he actually did?

You can use parenthesis in IF statements when you have many things to compare. Without them, any OR could make the statement true without the other operations.
