Any chance this program has been worked out? i would love to have something like this for my mechanics classes.
Yes it has, if you had read the first few posts you would have noticed that this is a thing.

zStart is a wonderful tool as well. It has features such as jump to label and editing archived programs (so you don't have to worry about Axe's builtin backups). It can also reinstall itself and everything else after RAM clears, and has a beta build somewhere with a small font program editor.

You need to use the Data command, like so:
Code: [Select]
Data(1,3,0,0,0,0,0,0)->Pic12011
Data(1,4,0,0,0,0,0,0)
Data(1,6,0,0,0,0,0,0)
Data(1,6,0,0,0,0,0,0)
Data(1,8,0,0,0,0,0,0)

That's a good explanation of it, thanks for doing my job. :P

Looking good!

Yes, though that is a constant. You can make that constant a memory location and use it as a pointer, or use it just like Pic*, GDB*, and others.

Do what I told you, it's the best way to do it. Also remember that you can have custom named pointers with °.

They're functionally the exact same thing, it's just a matter of semantics. It's the general consensus to use Pic* for sprites and other graphical data, and GDB* for other types of data. But nothing beats using custom names with the ° symbol in terms of readability.

It is an optimization in the way you write code though, as it makes it much easier to manage those sprites with less code.

So the calculator works now? Good to hear. :D

If you don't assign anything to the Pic* pointers, then no memory will be used. If you need a large amount of sprites, you can put them all under the same pointer and index them, since they are all 8 bytes. For example:
Code: [Select]
[the hex for your first sprite here]→Pic0
[the hex for your second sprite here]
[the hex for your third sprite here]
[and so on]
Now Pic0 is the first sprite, Pic0+8 is the second sprite, Pic0+16 is the third, etc.
This trick is very useful if you need to manage a large number of sprites in an enemy system, as you can just draw any of them with Pt-On(x,y,I*8+Pic0), where I is the enemy's number or whatever else you decide. Also great for tilemapping.

You've got a few problems here. The calculator isn't impossible to recover, but you will need to use a serial cable in order to get it back to normal.

Not sure where else to ask this, so I'll be necroposting. :P
You should consider inserting invisible characters in the username for the new post notifications on IRC, that would prevent the bot from highlighting people when they post which I find quite annoying. Back when it was a separate bot, I didn't mind because I could specifically prevent it from highlighting me in my client, but that's not the case anymore.

Introduce Yourself! / Re: Hello again?
« on: March 20, 2018, 06:35:13 am »
I might even make my own!
Eventually! I have things I could talk about in the future, but right now they're not quite public-ready.

@Streetwalrus : I've noticed you've been around a bit and posting. Nice to see you here again. I usually seem to miss you in IRC, though I don't spend an awful lot of time there these days.
Thanks! Hopefully we can catch up. I'm usually available between 10am and 3am (GMT+2). Just highlight me if you want to talk.
