are there any rules on ExecAsm(


Section 2.9:
Quote:
BASIC entries are allowed to use one of the following BASIC enhancement tools (libraries)
· Omnicalc
· ZSprite
· Codex
· Zapi

It is not allowed to use any other ASM tool/library, nor a self-made ASM tool/library.

So, hypothetically speaking, I could write an entire nostub assembly program and file it under the BASIC category :?: :shock: That's not very fair...

No, it says no other assembly routines are allowed- which as fr as I can see would include thos asm programs run with ExecAsm(.

I'm not making myself clear, aren't I? Let me rephrase: I can have an entire inline hex program in a BASIC program and it would count as a BASIC program, even though the only code in the BASIC program is the ExecAsm( token and a mass of hex characters, or some BASIC code with an assembly engine?

So that implies that ExecAsm( is off-limits, so to speak? I thought a "self-made tool/library" was something other than those 4 programs, like another assembly program :oops:

It would be extremely obvious that something is not right if there is a basic program that executes as fast as an asm program so i dont think that execasm() is a problem.

Besides if you want to cheat, thats no-ones fault but your own. If you are an asm coder, why would you want to win the basic section?

So let me get this straight: you can do things like Codex's functions w/ ExecAsm(, you just can't get creative with it, like compacting the BASIC program/creating an assembly program/making an assembly engine/hacking/etc :wink:

Who knows? Some assembly coders might have wanted to take advantage of that and make it an assembly vs. assembly duel for the Maxcoderz t-shirt :lol:

Yes, now it makes sense :)

XLIB is being made by tr1p1ea! You MUST include it!

xLIB is just s small project that i started for no real reason. Hardly anyone uses it and its not even really finished ... plus the only good thing it does is fast tilemaps for basic programs.

I don't see how it would be useful for making an animation...
If we use Zapi, are we allowed to use Zapi's sprite packaging feature? Ten pics is kind of limiting for making animations.
