Mobile Tunes 3 with Mimas
« on: November 18, 2010, 01:41:16 pm »
I would like to be able to make songs for Mobile Tunes 3 on my calc, through Mimas.  In order to do this, I need the inc file from MT3, "mt3notes", to be an AppVar include file recognized by Mimas.  I'm not sure how to do it, but I know someone will know how.  Thanks! ;D

Content of "mt3notes" for those who can't download Mobile Tunes 3:

As a general matter, you can use the 'asmto8xv' tool to convert .asm and .inc files into Mimas format.  In this case, mt3notes.inc uses #define macros instead of normal equates, so to create the file below, I had to change the #defines into equates.

As you probably know, Mimas doesn't currently support macros at all, so instead of this:
Code: [Select]
song:
playsection(startbit)
playsection(lastA)
playsection(startbit)
playsection(lastB)
endsong

startbit:
note(rest,rest, c3,f2, eighth)
note(f2,a2, c3,f2, eighth)
...
endsection
you'd need to write something like this:
Code: [Select]
song:
RORG 0
DW startbit
DW lastA
DW startbit
DW lastB
DW 0      ; end of song

startbit:
DB rest, rest, c3, f2
DW eighth
DB f2, a2, c3, f2
DW eighth
...
DW 0, 0, 0     ; end of section

I haven't tested this, but it should work.  Hope this helps.

I am sensing a potential future song creator for Mobile Tunes 3...
(I couldn't do it, but to anybody else who wishes to attempt this please do!)
Naaa... Na Nah Na Nana Na Nah... Hey Jude!

I wish there was an actual song editor so we don't need to install a computer IDE to compile ASM and we have an easier way to make songs.

Btw welcome back tloz28, I noticed you were away for a while.
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

Thanks Floppus!

How do I define tempo?

For the computer, it's defined like:
tempo = <insert tempo here>
Do I do it that way in Mimas?

Yes, that's right.  (The '=' character can be found in the 2nd+MATH menu, as in the BASIC program editor.)  You can also write 'EQU' instead of =, if you prefer.

One day...
One day...

We'll be watching HD videos with high quality sound on calculators...

...probably not Texas calculator's though.

But mobile tunes? Still great! :)
