new SGTools version

Post by stefano »

Steven P. Goldsmith, after 20 years, decided to refresh his SG Tools library.
He works on Hitech C, so his work can be used to develop programs directly on the C128.

uh well, ..no.
Is there some particular element you'd like to see included ?
When I adapted the SGTools to z88dk I mixed it with the existing z88dk parts where appropriate (e.g. the graphics functions are widely integrated with the z88dk ones).
On the other side I couldn't test the highest resolution thus I kept it aside.
I improved the sound routines, though, to support all the SID versions and I ported the 4bit wav player to other targets.

Mr. Stefano:

Really no particular element I need. I see in the screenshoots that look & feel is enhanced, that's all.

I will initiate to develop an api extension of the z88dk with the SGTools to support better the c128 80 columns. My final project will be to reproduce the look & feel and some of the functions of the FoxPro for DOS tool.

Let see what happens!

Best Regards.
