Me too, Richey. And here is good news for us: Researchers have cheering news for grumpy old port drinkers.

Another new version of BBC-SDL has been launched: Here is the link on the cross-platform conforum

http://bbcbasic.conforums.com/index.cgi?board=announcements&action=display&num=1485942746

This gives links to the site where it can be downloaded, plus details of the changes etc.

Of note, Richard has managed to get this version working on ARM-based Android devices as well as x86-based Android devices.

New edition of BBC BASIC SDL released by Richard

Quote
I've released version 0.23a of 'BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0'. The main new feature is support for reading JPG, PNG and GIF images, the absence of which has been a limitation up to now. To demonstrate this feature I have written a fairly fully-featured Jigsaw Puzzle program, it runs equally well on Windows, Linux, MacOS, Raspberry Pi, Android and iOS. You can add your own JPG pictures to the one supplied. http://www.bbcbasic.co.uk/bbcsdl/

I've just invested in a new Mac, so I've downloaded the update. Seems to work great with no obvious differences to BB4W - except its free  :)

Cool. Runs on my 64bit Linux Mint (Ubuntu-based) machine just fine... Ah. The memories!

Thank you.

BBC BASIC for SDL now upgraded to version 23c.

The main changes are:

  • support for the SYS statement to return a floating-point value, and inclusion of 'control code symbols' in the MODE 7 character set
  • fire.bbc, jigsaw.bbc and telstar.bbc updated. Experimental 64-bit Linux edition.
  • two new demos (torus2d, in graphics, and soldiers in sound). Whilst the latter is added as a demonstration of the musical capabilities, it also includes handling of a 3D model.

Can be found here http://www.bbcbasic.co.uk/bbcsdl/

I find all of this disturbing. 

I joined this site in the hope of improving my meager programming skills, and in most cases, I am not disappointed. Then I read a thread like 'this' one, and not just at 'this' site, the topic starts out with a valid idea then deteriorates into a 'put down' match.

I can understand that people have differences, but usually, a 'rant and rave' forum is created for just that purpose. Those that wish to complain can 'chat' there and the rest of us can then 'choose' to either participate or not.

I am trying to learn. I do not find it encouraging when members 'air their dirty laundry' for all to see in a thread that is meant to be informative or instructive in regards to programming. I did not come here to read 'who did what to whom'.

A few suggestions: Admin. Perhaps a 'rant' forum? Moderator: Moderate. Guide the content of each thread. Members: This forum can be viewed by 'joe public'. Before you make 'comments' about others, remember we are being watched, and the site's reputation is on the line.

Admin: I will make your job a little easier. Please delete my account...

That's just Tomaaz winding Aurel up. It's kinda traditional around these parts.
