Re: How do you save a screen

How did you do that airbrush with dithering that keeps its place with tessellated checkerboards of all sizes. Most clever indeed! I was trying to work out in my head how you would do it. The 2x mode is really great. Another very useful addition for tons more shades. That will open out the look much ...

RB BB3

I have so many projects and things I imagine. It's following them through. Here's one I have just imagined and designed in my head this morning. A teletext synth and groovebox. Of course it borrows from ideas already out there. I don't think anyone's done a teletext one to my knowledge! Could this b...

Drum machines

Hi there I'm on a mission this morning with lots of things going through my head! I used to enjoy dabbling with music on my BBC......... Can anyone name any packages that go beyond the sound chip like drum machines with sequencers e.t.c I had a Music 5000 back in the day.......so I will leave that o...

Re: How do you save a screen

Ahh thanks so much Fourthstone for trying to port it over ( and taking all that time to try ). Appreciated. I think you are right if these problems crop up now you might spend a long time going down a path and it never working. Speed is quite important.... We can always go the paid route for BBC BAS...

Re: How do you save a screen

Yeh sorry it's easy to forget we are just using 32k for the whole program. I'm really happy to use it as is without extra features.......but if you are still enjoying developing it then we can move it on as it's always been evolving......maybe what is nice is the simplicity of it in one way.....the ...

Re: How do you save a screen

Hi Fourthstone. I suspect you've been pretty busy with work so this can go on a back burner ....just some small additions which I think could make life easier using ART 2......I hope you don't mind me mentioning this! One thing is being able to save quickly with an incremental filename. So you just ...

Re: Acorn Art Thread

We could try that Fourthstone.......although there are rather a lot of dithers already in Art 2...but having more means more shades available.
It is good to go back and finish a picture I tried first time.............I don't often finish stuff so I am trying to change that....
