I need help in something - A500 - 06.10.2013

I have a source code I am working in AMOS but I am finding very difficult to do my thing on it...and I am wondering how can I convert it from AMOS to AmiBlitz code?

You have to convert the source manually or semi-manually (find&replace). Amiblitz has a different syntax and runtime.
First of all you should decide which is your target system (OCS, AGA or RTG) and upon those you decide the runtime you are going to use. (Slices, Display or AmigaOS Screens).


Re: I need help in something - A500 - 06.10.2013

Actually my target is really OCS and PAL Amiga...in fact I want my program to synch with 50 Hz vertical line that works only in PAL Amiga...any idea how to make that in Blitz basic? Also another question...can AmiBlitz3 work on an Amiga 500 512 KB Chip RAM with 8 MB Fast RAM on a 030 processor or that is not enough for it?


Re: I need help in something - Der Wanderer - 06.10.2013

"VWait" is a command that waits until the vertical blank interrupt happens.
Amiblitz3 should run on High-End Amiga. You want to use BlitzBasic2. However, I would develop under WinUAE and only once the program is finished compile an exe under BlitzBasic2.


Re: I need help in something - A500 - 07.10.2013

Is using vwait is all I need in my program? Is there any specific parameter or anything like that? So if I use vwait would the program synch to PAL mode and not work on NTSC mode or would it work in both regions?

Ones I am done with AMOS I will make all my big serious games on Blitz Basic Smile


Re: I need help in something - Der Wanderer - 07.10.2013

VWait waits till the vertical blank interrupt happens, whatever screen you have open. May it be PAL, NTSC or whatsoever (productity...). This way you get your video update 100% flickerfree and smooth.
It has the amount of interrupts to wait as parameter, but usually you want to way 1 VBlank, which is the default. The AB3 online help is your friend ;-)


Re: I need help in something - A500 - 07.10.2013

One final question and I will not harass you on this specific topic, what is the parameter for PAL and NTSC? Just curious.


Re: I need help in something - Der Wanderer - 08.10.2013

VWait waits exactly till the next display refresh happens. It can take a parameter that waits for n display refreshs instead of just the next one.
NTSC is a function that returns -1 if the Amiga runs in NTSC, or 0 if it runs in PAL.
The display mode is set by the Slice or Display or OpenScreenTags instructions. There is however, a ForceNTSC and ForcePAL instruction that does exactly what it spells.

Hope that answers you questions. Otherwise: May the online help be with you!
