@Parzi does the ti have hardware scrolling? I didn’t think it did. EGA and VGA have scrolling support, but basic as a language is not well set up for graphics support. If you’re interested in old DOS applications I recommend pre standard C. Power C is a pretty good early dos implementation that is actually still for sale. Watcom is good too. I have my own c compiler and library that I made and that’s what I use. There are probably open source ones but I haven’t checked in two decades.
Parzi678282d@FrodoSwaggins actually it has window support, much in the same way as the GBx consoles did, but it's 8 pixels smaller in each direction than the actual VRAM space, so it's not really usable for much. However, I could drop an assembly snippet into the code in-line in TI-BASIC to not have to wait 3 or more minutes per pixel moved as TI-BASIC is slow as fuck, meaning I could call the same few snippets over and over to smoothly scroll quickly.
("BASICBOY" on Pouet, for an example.)
I can't seem to do this in QBASIC.
sirjofri55481dI just read "my demoscene stuff", have some instant ++
sirjofri55481dAlso qbasic was my very first programming language
