Not a very big problem, but sometimes when I try to compile an archived source, it will give an invalid token error. If I unarchive the source (and don't edit it) it compiles just fine.
It is bad luck to be superstitious.

My bro found the bug in new Axe: My bro tried to add some pics into appvar, and gave him a memory error. He had a good amount of RAM left, but still gave him it. He said it won't let him add more than 2 pics in 7680 bytes appvar. And he also said it worked well in previous version of Axe.

Question: what does "Err: bad flash" mean?
sometimes it does it, and sometimes it compiles it without an error.

What version of Axe are you using?

Upgrade and watch the error magically disappear!

This sounds more like a coding error than an Axe error. Perhaps if you posted the culprit code some other coders could try to assist in finding the source of the problem?

I am no expert on the bug, but I believe it can cause some bad problems. My advice:Full back up, Full ROM clear, update to the latest stable version of AXE (the one on ticalc).
Also, if your archive is messed up, try this: http://ourl.ca/12245

the code was:
Code: [Select]
.NAPPV
[Pic1]→Str1
[Pic2]→Str2
[Pic3]→Str3
GetCalc("appvS04",7680)→A
Copy(Str1,A,768)
Copy(Str2,A+768,768)
Copy(Str3,A+1536,768)
It worked on Axe 1.0.3...
but why not in 1.0.5?

I experience the same problem. I have an appvar of ~5300 bytes and the size is ok, but I always get a memory error.

Maybe you don't have enough RAM free? Keep in mind that when you run a program with Asm() a copy of the program is put in RAM, and your program there contains multiple fullscreen images.

would you mind posting the specific programs that give the errors, as well as the source programs so we can try this ourselves?  That would help a lot :)

The variable creation routine hasn't been changed since Axe 1.0.2, so I'm pretty sure that your code should work exactly the same in 1.0.3 as in 1.0.5. I'm guessing the problem is that, upon running the program, you just barely no longer have sufficient free RAM to create the appvar. Something that you might call a bug does exist in the variable creation routine, in that it doesn't account for the size of the new VAT entry when checking to see if there is enough space for the new variable. So if you want to create a 7680-byte variable but have 7685 bytes free, Axe will think you have enough space and will try to create the variable. However you can't actually fit the variable and its VAT entry, so you will get an ERR:MEMORY.
