Dare not power it on just yet. Any tips would be welcome on what to watch out for before powering up.

Re: Black Phoenix 1.5 - Preview

Problem solved, the safety settings on the extracted file for the user was wrong. Write was disabled. Now it works. Thanks to Marcel für the hint. The QBTnet error was the same here. I have spent quite a long time to find out, which gives the best screen size with QPC2 for me. It is 768 x 512 on my...

Re: Black Phoenix 1.5 - Preview

I wanted to try BP15, put it into the recent QPC2, but it refuses to start properly. The window gets black, an error beep(?) comes, a few Buttons on top and a half created QDT button (just one). The pointer then is a padlock. When I open the System button, there is "at Line xxx:1" not fou...

Re: Black Phoenix 1.5

Hi Giorgio, yes, I know, 3.16!!! But that's what I got bundled with QPC2 4.0.5-10, so I'm rather stuck with it I suspect, unless anyone knows how to upgrade? ALPHA_BLEND doesn't work on any version of QPC that I have, currently 3.33, 4.0.0 and the latest, 4.0.5. Cheers and thanks for your help. Nor...

Re: Black Phoenix 1.5

Hi Giorgio, I'm using whatever version came with QPC 4.0.5 from this link - http://www.kilgus.net/qpc/QPC2-setup%204.0.5.10.exe - which I've just downloaded again, and reinstalled. Exactly the same problem I'm afraid. :( Cheers, Norm. 3.28 I SUPPOSE try to start qpc2 without Black Phoenix and then ...

Re: Black Phoenix 1.5

Hi Giorgio, yes, I see it working on your setup there. On mine, even in SuperBASIC, if I type in ALPHA_BLEND 128 directly, I get invalid name. I've run the extras command to a file, searching the file shows no sign of the ALPHA_BLEND command there either. Very strange indeed. I've done absolutely n...
