Section 8 of Richard Ashbery’s Simple Graphics Programming in RISC OS BASIC has been updated to include descriptions of many of the graphics shapes users will encounter when using a pair of parametric equations, and some additional example images have been added towards the end.
Richard Ashbery has added another section to his website on the subject of simple graphics programming in BBC BASIC V on RISC OS. Section 8 (which sounds ominously like some top secret government black ops outfit until you discover that it…) covers parametric (not paramilitary) equations. Ahem. Anyway… According to Richard, these equations can be […]
If you look at Richard Ashbery’s Graphics Programming website, and in particular at the Animated Graphics examples, you’ll notice an animated GIF that isn’t included in the programs that can be downloaded from the site – but if you want to see the program in action, it is now possible to download it via !Store, […]
Richard Ashbery has updated his Graphic Programming Website, on which he provides a handy introduction to writing graphical ditties in BBC BASIC. This update inserts a section 6, entitled Animated Patterns, on which there is a zip file to download containing over thirty programs to run, edit, and just enjoy. Referring to the page, Richard […]
Richard Ashbery’s Simple Gemoetric Programming in RISC OS BASIC website has been updated with more content – section 5, entitled “Other Graphic Designs” has been added.
Richard Ashbery, known for his ArtWorks, er, artworks1, has launched a new website dedicated to graphics programming in the version of BBC BASIC supplied on RISC OS Computers.
Having first demonstrated it at this year’s Southwest Show, R-Comp Interactive has now released an upgrade to allow computers based around the i.MX6 CPU/GPU to benefit from hardware graphics acceleration. With it running, scrolling through documents is much faster, redraw is greatly improved when moving windows around, and so on. Priced at £29.99, the upgrade […]
Rick Murray has dug out an old graphics application, Imagery, that was originally a commercial package and subsequently released on an Acorn World cover disc in 1993. With some basic – or in this case BASIC – hacking, the application now works again on modern systems. For more details – and a link to download […]
The Count from Sesame Street would absolutely love this! Following on from parts one and two, and subsequently parts three and four, it was a fairly logical conclusion that if and when Richard Ashbery uploaded any more videos of Jan Vibe’s graphics programs, the next would be part five, and the next again part six. […]
Richard Ashbery has struck again – and again – and uploaded two more videos to YouTube. The graphics output of Danish programmer Jan Vibe, which used to feature regularly in the pages (and cover discs) of Acorn User magazine, were always a delight to behold – but these programs were written to run on the […]
