Re: gtBASIC

Just wanted to let you know that I've been developing a video poker game for Gigatron in gtBASIC. I've had a blast working on the project and can't thank you enough for your compiler. I'm really enjoying gtBASIC! Once the game gets closer to completion I'll start a new thread, but for now I'm keepi...

Re: gtBASIC

Compiler::initialiseMacros() : Failed to open file : './../runtime/macros.i' Linker::loadInclude() : Failed to open file : 'math.i' This means the path to the runtime, (a bunch of *.i files), is not correct. By default it expects the *.i files to be in "..\runtime". If they are not, then you can sp...

Re: Pluggy Reloaded

I was more thinking of an extra button connected to the arduino that would first reset the gigatron and then boot up the loader and then would enter into a custom command line application loaded from the arduino eeprom where you could type the name of an application and then execute it where the ar...

Re: Pluggy Reloaded

Ok so i figured out how that works but could it be possible to make a gt1 file that asks the promicro a list of all the available software When you select it then the arduino could run a altered babelfish sketch that first resets the gigatron then opens the loader and then writes the requested soft...

Re: Pluggy Reloaded

Ok so i made one on a breadboard and connected it to my gigatron and i put a gt1 file in the root directory of the card. But how do i actually run gt1 files from it? I assume you mean from the SD card interface? If so, you need a Terminal program running on your host PC that allows you to talk to B...

Re: gtBASIC

It sounds like gtbasic.exe hasn't been built, did you do the following? Building CMake 3.7 or higher is required for building, has been tested on Windows with Visual Studio and gcc/mingw32 and also built and tested under Linux. A C++ compiler that supports modern STL, (Visual C++ 15 or higher, gcc, ...

cd C:\(the folder with the compiler)
gtbasic Cube.gbas

and then i got an error that the command was not included
I'm kinda stuck now what to do
Was the error that it couldn't find "gtbasic.exe" or that it it couldn't find "cube.gbas"?

That's pretty awesome Walter, I have boxes full of old TTL boards and chips, I'll see if I can find anything older.

Re: Invader

Amazing how much you squeezed out of the Gigatron! I spent more time than I care to admit playing this today. :) I did notice an anomaly playing with keyboard that I'm trying to make sense of. If you fire using the enter key, the player shifts a little to the right with each shot, which doesn't hap...
