Re: Dynamic Sprites

Dilwyn, I wrote something to display dynamic sprites using an asynchronous job, but it didnt work very well, so its in my pile of "try something else" abandoned projects. However, my sprite viewer, Sprv V0.07 (I believe that was the last released version?) can display dynamic sprites (up t...

Re: MCALLT, Easyptr4

Hi Marcel, thanks for looking into it! The thing in Per's code I can explain (besides the bug that event% is set outside of the loop). This was just a knocked-together piece of code to demonstrate an issue. Events were not being acted on at this point.. <> So your second MCALLT is actually not a new...

Re: I hate BREXIT !

The EU wasnt just "them", you know, it was also "us". "We" made the rules we now so despise. Go figure. In a democracy nobody gets exactly what they want all the time, because other people also have wants. So the UK doesnt like the rules and "meddling" and pul...

Re: MCALLT, Easyptr4

Re: MCALLT, Easyptr4

The plot thickens: In my case I had something like the following scenario: 100 ch% = FOPEN("con") 110 time% = -1: event% = 0 120 n% = CODE("n") 130 MDRAW #ch%,'win1_ptr_mem_Menu_men', 0, 0, 100, 60 140 REPeat ol 150 num=MCALLT(#ch%\ event%,time%) 160 k% = MKEY%(#ch%) 170 SELect O...

Re: MCALLT, Easyptr4

If you find another solution, it would be nice to know :)
Despite the gremlins, I think we can agree that EasyPtr is MUCH more useful than troublesome.

Re: MCALLT, Easyptr4

Hi Dilwyn, Funny you should say that! Just this morning I had a similar problem. MCALLT just got stuck and refused to timeout. Like you, I tried everything. Normally it doesnt do this, but in this specific context it did. It took me a long while to find a workaround. This did the trick: 100 ch% = FO...
