I thought Quigibo added the Shade( command for that?

I don't think it was tied to the contrast level set in RAM, though. It just directly updated the screen. I could be wrong, though.

you cannot actually update the screen itself with the new contrast value
It just directly updated the screen

Sorry, I don't understand what you were trying to say here. Though, if you want to update the OS contrast value so it doesn't "jump" when changing it after the program exits, you can store the new value to {E8447}.

In the first quote, I was talking about when you store 00h-27h to 8447h, it doesn't actually change the LCD contrast.

In the second one, I was talking about the Shade command. I thought it actually did the later without doing the former?

Ah, yeah. Well, I was answering to your comment that you needed ASM code to update the screen.

aaah ok that's what I guessed. You needed to update a port or something I forgot (I should check the page on WikiTI again later)

Yeah, port 10h, with values C0-FF (or, rather, D8-FF, if the values are between 00 and 27 in (contrast))

I don't know if someone has already requested this but i would really like the "randint(" command because it is beginning to get a bit annoying to put

Code: [Select]
While (A>100) or (A<10)
rand/1000->A
End

If you want a random integer between 10 and 100, you should do

Code: [Select]
rand^91+10

It might be nice if somebody made a converter (even if just a BASIC program) where you select the starting and ending range for your randomizing then converts it to Axe format, because I find rand kinda hard to work with, since it uses such high values. A converter (that produces the appropriate needed code) would help a lot

To produce a random integer between start and end:
rand^(end-start+1)+start

For example, 1 to 10:
Code: [Select]
rand^(10-1+1)+1
rand^10+1

333 to 666:
Code: [Select]
rand^(666-333+1)+333
rand^334+333

is it the smallest syntax, though? I really meant some sort of basic to axe rand converter, even if it means the start/end range is different in the Axe version. Just asking for size reasons

What do you mean by "is it the smallest syntax?"

EDIT: If you mean is that the most size-efficient way to produce a random integer in that range, yes.

I am not sure how to explain it further. Sorry. Could anybody else explain to him for him?
