Re: Last file name string.

I have made some progress with this problem. This short piece of machine code is 'semi' working : org 60000 ld hl,0 ;HL=0 ,address to load data block (0=take address from header) ld a,1 ld (23668),a ;set T ADDR to 1 (1=Load 2=Verify) ld ix,dummy_header ;set IX to point to dummy header location call ...

Re: Last file name string.

@RMartins At the moment attempting to patch Fuse is a bit beyond my abilities. Maybe someday I will look into it, I have a few ideas of add-ons for Fuse. @1024MAK I was hoping to get the data via BASIC to use in a BASIC program. I have done some experimentation and it would seem you would have to ca...

Last file name string.

Is it possible to retrieve the file name of the most recently loaded file? I have used the memory browser on Fuse and have seen the filename in RAM, is there a way of determining where the name will be stored?

Re: RND related question

I think INT ((RND*186)+0.5) would give 0 to 186

Re: Double buffering on the Spectrum

Thank you all for this incredibly illuminating thread. I have successfully coded a working sinus-scroller, although currently it flickers rather badly. My method could be described as placing 28 sprites along a pre-calculated sine wave (i used BASIC to create a lookup table which I copied into my so...

Re: Double buffering on the Spectrum

@Ast A. Moore Is the floating bus option available on the 48k machines? I have been using HALT to sync to the screen refresh, is this the best way on 48k machines?

Re: Double buffering on the Spectrum

I was coding for the 48k Spectrum. I think I used the wrong term, double buffering, what I meant was using part of RAM to store display data and only make changes in that space , copying it to the screen after a HALT. I did read that the 128k machine makes buffering much easier but had read no furth...
