That weather map with square blobs is so much easier to comprehend than modern day stuff.

The Temple of Zarius.
I took this very old picture and gave it a good facelift.
It was one of the first I did.

Hybrid Music 5000 Junior

Hi I asked this question about six months ago it never heard back. Does the Hybrid Music 5000 junior actually exist? It said on the advert coming in Jan 89. I don't ever recall seeing an advert for it. It was a rom and software. Also does anyone know where I can find a link to the Hybrid Universal P...

Re: BBC Basic for windows and Android - *DISPLAY and swiping

You have a fair point. My pictures are in landscape format. I just do not like swiping through pictures holding a phone in Landscape mode. Tinder just isn't as quick! :lol:

Re: BBC Basic for windows and Android - *DISPLAY and swiping

Well Lemmings on the S8 is fine. Lemmings on the X70 ( on the right ) is a bit weird - but it is a cheapo £50 phone .... I realise there are so many models of phones it is difficult to accommodate everything......but yes the S8 has stretched that properly..... My image size for the gallery was outpu...

Re: BBC Basic for windows and Android - *DISPLAY and swiping

Just to say all the MODES ( from what I can see ) are resolutions that are landscape not portrait. e.g 22 128x48 1024x768 2048x1536 16 23 64x48 1024x768 2048x1536 16 24 144x54 1152x864 2304x1728 16 25 72x54 1152x864 2304x172 What do you do if your phone is a resolution 720x1280 ( portrait)?

Re: BBC Basic for windows and Android - *DISPLAY and swiping

Hi Richard I haven't changed my mind about swiping..... I am a beginner with it so need to start with little steps........that's all......just trying things out a bit first...keyboard presses are the easiest thing to get going with at the start with A$=GET$! I will have a look at the mouse commands ...

Re: BBC Basic for windows and Android - *DISPLAY and swiping

My main issues now are how to work out resolutions. It displays ok in Bluestacks at 720x1280 portrait but when I copy it over to my phone it's not displaying properly/image chopped off. So I need to read up about how to get around resolution issues. The other thing I need to do is work out finger pr...

Re: BBC Basic for windows and Android - *DISPLAY and swiping

I finally got it working in Android Richard :) This is what I had to add......I wasn't sure what to write...you have to put @dir$ before the path like you said ( but I wasn't quite sure where e.t.c) Anyway now I have this working I can proceed. I am thinking how to get these pictures on the internet...

Thank you Richard for your patience with me and taking the time to point me to the right place. You have been very helpful. When I say I don't know what I am doing that is true but there is always a bit of 'let's try this and see what happens' in the things I do....sometimes I get a result with a li...

Re: BBC Basic for windows and Android - *DISPLAY and swiping

I've just ran that on my phone to test it's not Bluestacks. It says 'File or path not found at line 30' on my phone (rather than line 10 when run on Bluestacks) So it doesn't like the path in the OSCLI command....that variable pic$. Sorry it must be a schoolboy error 30OSCLI "DISPLAY """ + pic$ + """"

Re: BBC Basic for windows and Android - *DISPLAY and swiping

Ahh thanks Richard. That is an interesting thought. It means I cold design rooms in different ways and use angles which could provide much more variety.
