but about my line question...
first of all, what are the x-mins/maxs and y-mins/maxs in axe? the regular line(0,0,10,10) doesn't do anything.
A general rule of thumb for Axe: anything graphscreen-related (with a few exceptions, Text w/o Fix 5 being one of them) is only put on the screen if you do Dispgraph.
Try putting DispGraph after it, then see what happens.

What exactly is your line question? Can you share more details?
My line question is: I did this:
Code: [Select]
:.LINE
:ClrDraw
:Line(0,0,10,10)
:DispGraph
:Repeat getKey
:End
But it didn't do anything.
for the line command as far as I know you have to have a graph screen with x-mins and that stuff.
so if someone could show me how they made a borderline around the screen in axe with the line command, that would be great.

Bitmaps w/o Fix 8 is the only other exception I can think of.


Spoiler For Projects:

My projects haven't been worked on in a while, so they're all on hiatus for the time being. I do hope to eventually return to them in some form or another...

Spoiler For Pokemon TI:
Axe port of Pokemon Red/Blue to the 83+/84+ family. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia:
My big personal project, an original RPG about dimensional travel and a few heroes tasked with saving the world.
Coding-wise, on hold, but I am re-working the story.

Spoiler For Finale's Super Insane Tunnel Pack of Doom:
I will be combining Blur and Collision Course into a single gamepack. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia Origins: Sky's Story:
Prequel to Nostalgia. On hold, especially while the story is re-worked.

Well for a border around the screen, you could do:
Line(0,0,95,0)
Line(0,0,0,63)
Line(95,0,95,63)
Line(0,63,95,63)

It can be optimized but yeah.

You could actually do it a simpler way:
.Rect( token is ref( token, RectI( is rref(
Rect(0,0,96,64)
RectI(1,1,94,62)


Rect draws a rectangle, RectI inverts a rectangle-shaped area.

Exactly what I was looking for! Thank you!  ;D
but how did you access the "RectI(" function? for some reason it is not in my catalog.

It's under the Matrix menu, under the sub-menu Math.  In the program editor (if and only if it's an axe program) after scrolling down for a bit you'll see both Rect and RectI, options A and B respectively (taking the place of ref/rref)
