Question 1: If you want to draw to the buffer, put a Fix 5 at the beginning of your program and a Fix 4 at the end :)
Question 2: Is the game over 8192 bytes? Nostub executables have to be under 8192 bytes, while MOS and DCS programs can have up to 8811 bytes of code and unlimited data. However, be warned that Axe doesn't guarantee that a MOS/DCS program will have all the data at the end. The safest way to get past the code limit once you're at 8811 is by compiling to an application which gives you 16384 bytes to work with.

Oh, I see, that's the problem then. those commands push me right over 8192. Problem(s) solved, then!

Remember that you can still run from shells up to 8811 bytes, so just compile for MOS if you have to :)

<late>On a very off-topic note, welcome on the forums Elsewhere.</late>
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I've got one.  I was wondering if multiplying something by zero makes the product zero.
The idea is that something like 3*(B>C)+A→A would only increase A by 3 if B is greater than C, doing the same as If B>C:A+3→A:End .  Will this work? Also, would the parenthesis be necessary?
Another idea, does multiplying by -1 (negative 1) make the result the opposite?  Like, 6 * -1 = -6

Yes, that would work. Although it would be more optimized as follows, because multiplying by 3 is an optimized calculation:

B>C*3+A→A


EDIT: And yes, multiplying by negative 1 negates the number as you would expect. Remember that the result is only treated as negative if you use a signed comparison or something else that uses signed numbers. Otherwise as far as the processor knows it's just a really big positive number. -6 is just 65530 interpreted differently.

How large is your program?  Any Homescreen program that is over 8100 bytes will give an error, it sounds to me like you are very close to this value?

As for text, try putting a Fix 5 at the very start of your program

When using Fix 5 we always need a Fix 4 before ending, don't forget (I think you know that, though).


Also, how to get a number input in Axe like in Basic (Prompt A, or Input A)?

I believe this may be what you're looking for:
http://ourl.ca/4129/80803
http://ourl.ca/4129/81340
-- or this --
http://ourl.ca/4129/123530
http://ourl.ca/4129/125194

Code: [Select]
.NUMINP

0?F?B
Repeat F
0?K
Repeat K
Output(0,{E844B},'?'?Frac
getKey?K=9?F
End
K-1/10?A
4-A?A
If A=1
K^10-4*3+A?A
End
If A=2
K^10-6*3+A?A
End
If A=3
K-1^10-7*3+A?A
End
If K=33
0?A
End
If K?9
B*10+A?B?A
sub(A)
End
End
Return

Lbl A
[000000?Pic99
A?{Pic99}r
If {Pic99}r>9
1?{Pic99+2
End
If {Pic99}r>99
2?{Pic99+2
End
If {Pic99}r>999
3?{Pic99+2
End
If {Pic99}r>9999
4?{Pic99+2
End
For(A,0,{Pic99+2
Output(1+{Pic99+2}-A,{E844B},{Pic99}r^10+48?Frac
{Pic99}r/10?{Pic99}r
End

I see, there's no included command, I'd have to use these subroutines for example.

Thanks!
