Hu-BASIC

Hello,

I am looking for MZF or MZT files containing programs in BASIC of the Hu-BASIC type to have examples of programming in this language.

Thank you.

Re: USR()

Possible! Not having analyzed the complete code of s-basic 1z-013b.
It seems to me that there is a whole working environment in the form of memory locations and that saving this environment is not necessarily essential ... to be checked.

Re: USR()

On sbasic 1Z-013b, USR can be found in $3305: USR: CALL $57FD; Syntax check for open parenthesis CALL $4D65; Evaluate the expression (HL) and provide a 2-byte value: Address PUSH DE INC HL CP 29 JR Z, USR_1 DEC HL CALL $3332; Comma syntax check CALL $4DBC; Evaluate the string expression and provide ...

Re: Beyond

After code optimization I get a wav of 1m33.59s. I doubt it will be possible to do better. I do not know if it is possible to modify the game itself and publish the modifications in view of its publication by sharpworks: I would like to offer a version with choice of more or less difficulty compared...

Re: Beyond

I'll try to optimize the code, since it's a compiled program so there is some headroom, and maybe I'll reduce the size significantly further.

Re: Beyond

In this version, the decompressor is part of the code, it is not integrated in the header of the MZF.
In the decompressor version in the header, we have a wav duration of 99.1s (1m39.1s).
The difference is not visible when loading.
For information, the delta is 3.

Re: Beyond

After compression with mz7, I obtained a wav file with a length of almost 100s (1m39.58s).
It includes the initial presentation screen, the one displayed during loading, then the welcome screen with the rotating banner, and the complete game.

Re: Beyond

I didn't compress anything, the file is 45.6kb in size and has been recompiled so that it can load all at once, so it takes that long in wav. When using a drive other than a tape drive (in digital therefore) I find it more practical to have a single file rather than 8. Given the structure of the dat...

Re: Beyond

If anyone is interested, I recreate Beyond as a single MZF file allowing it to be loaded more easily on a real machine and an emulator.
