oh ok, that's better then. Thanks for explaining

I will most likely have to code more soon to not forget half of Axe commands again in a month x.x

Btw you might want to update the first topic post with the recent changes in features
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

perhaps it could be usefull to be able to call the register values from the processor? like hl?

the following code would return the value of ans:
Code: [Select]
PwrReg HLor
Code: [Select]
ref(HL)or
Code: [Select]
Get(HL)
everytime that I was down, you would always come around, and get my feedback on the ground. (modified part from 'Seasons in the sun')

No matter how many errors are bothering you, always try to stay rel-Axe!

The HoMM project will be resumed as soon Axe 1.0.0 will be released!
Projects:
Code: [Select]
HoMM:   [==--------]    Project 'resumed': I'm suffering overwhelming new ideas being popped up in my dreams :P
tiDE:   [----------]    Explored and understood the main part of the code: just started writing a Tokenizer.

But HL is already, by default, "Ans". The other registers hold nothing useful, unless you use them with inline Asm (in which case you would just use the inline Asm to access the registers anyway)

U're (partially) right. On second thought this idea is pretty unusefull, but I thought that Axe perhaps could get the functionality of ASM on ur calc. Just like in C: u can use built in functions, but u can also use more 'native' commands.

It's better to not make Axe look too complicated by adding low level commands like this, though, or at least list those commands in a special area stating you need ASM knowledge to use them, not with the other commands, else people will look at the first commands in the doc and get the impression the language is not much easier than ASM as soon as they run into such command in the list.

It's not really as complex as it looks.
It's just inString in essence.

Aaah ok, just making sure. Cuz Axe in the first place is meant to be kinda easy to learn and look user-friendly at first glance

OK, perhaps reading registers is not one of my best ideas x.x
The more experienced programmers just should use inline ASM, thats a much better idea then I guess

I dunno if I said it already but...

Pt-On(X,Y,PIC,<dimension1>,<dimension2>)

If <dimension1> and <dimension2> aren't found, automatically display the sprite in 8x8.

Also,

DS<(TYPE, X1, Y1, X2, Y2)

Begin drawing a shape of a certain TYPE (xLib commands 0-10) at (X1,Y1) and stop at (X2,Y2).

Changed the command to DS<().

It works, too.
:D

Remember for sprite width, they would need to be multiples of 8, though.

I think Quigibo is already planning to use IS>() and DS<() for increasing and decreasing with a specified "wrap" value
