Re: The Acorn Copy key: to which key is it mapped?

That's what I was looking for, thanks!
The 'end' key on the Mac is the one that has an arrow pointing to the lower right.

The Acorn Copy key: to which key is it mapped?

Reading the BBC Basic VI manual, I come across an explanation to edit a line of basic code. It requires the Copy key. Where is it mapped on everyday PC/Mac keyboards? I'd like to change a line without needing to type it all over. Of course I can do this in StrongED, but then I can't use the full 'MO...

Re: Full screen RiscOS?

I had a black border on HDMI 1080p too.
This is what I put in CONFIG.TXT that fixed it for me:

Code: Select all

disable_overscan=1
fake_vsync_isr=1
gpu_mem=64
init_emmc_clock=100000000
kernel=RISCOS.IMG

Re: How can I see output of BBC BASIC graphic commands?

That got me to see a circle!
The graphical hello-world works, and with typing 'QUIT' I could safely leave basic and return to the desktop.
Thanks!

How can I see output of BBC BASIC graphic commands?

I'm curious to learn some things about BBC BASIC in the RiscOS distribution I found on . When I go to the task window and start the interpreter with the command BASIC, and type this from the 1999 Acorn Basic manual, nothing happens: MODE 12 CIRCLE FILL 600,500,100 So how do I get a window or screen ...
