Nobody wants safety features :P
And until I voted, it was tied 4-4-4 (safety features not included).

I don't know why safety features would be wanted, cuz everybody just should learn to code safely, and safety slows down a lot, while it won't be used so much.

Even in the event of a win, that doesn't mean that's the feature I'm going to work on.  This just gives me a sense of what people want.  Unless there is a mass majority, I'm just going to do what I feel is most essential, or in some cases, whatevers easiest :P

that said, I hope reading from archive is done at some point in the near future, it would come very handy if I ever made some sort of sequel to Supersonic Ball, since it would mostly not just include levels that are randomly generated and the game would be considerably larger.

Indeed, DJ. Even if reading directly from archive isn't supported, it would be nice to be able to create RAM copies of variables.
Well, I guess I'll wait and see what feature is added next. Keep up the good work, Quigibo! :D

I don't understand why so many people think that OS Var/Pic/Strc etc. is so very important? for the contest it isn't even allowed to use them i thought, or am I wrong at this point?

I don't remember about not being able to use them... Unless you mean to store data, which would be pretty pointless anyway. (So much faster just to have it in the program or in an appvar)
That wasn't my vote, at any rate, so I can't tell you why :P

OK, I see.
... Unless you mean to store data, which would be pretty pointless anyway. (So much faster just to have it in the program or in an appvar) ...
OS Pics would perhaps be handy, but I thought conversation with external non-Axe programs was forbidden, and OS things are just only handy for that OMHO.

I agree w/you there, and yes, pure Axe only.
Pics and strings would be the two useful OS vars, IMO (Mainly for things like sprite/picture editors)

You're allowed to use OS variables and its even encouraged.  How else are you going to save your games?  Appvars are OS variables, but if you wanted, you can use pics, strings, or other things to save data but I don't know why you would want to.

But I have a feeling most people who voted did not vote because of the contest, but because they want to make some useful editors for sprites, tilemaps, music, and programs which are significantly more useful with more OS var support.

Is there an efficient way to 'swap' the buffer and back buffer? If not, I'd be nice to have that.

Also, is there a better way to store an OS pic to the buffer besides
Code: [Select]
:[Pic1]→Pic1
:Pic1→DispGraph
:StoreGDB
:ClrDraw
I do sprites and stuff, so yeah.

Just use expr( (well, now it's Exch(, but you get the point) like expr(L3,L6,768
Yeah, you can do it with conj(/Copy( like this:
Code: [Select]
:[Pic1]->Pic1
:Zeros(12
:.You need to fill in the last row
:Copy(Pic1,L6,768
Edit: some letter cases were incorrect

I believe you are talking about the Copy() and Exch() commands.

To swap the main buffer and the back buffer, do:
Exch(L6,L3,768)

To copy picture data to the buffer, do:
Copy(Pic1,L6,768)
