Accompanying software
#1
Hello,

I received my Beam Racer today and installed it, all of the LEDs light up on the board and my C64 still displays a picture so I assume everything is correct.

I'm possibly being stupid but I couldn't see any downloads for any of the accompanying software such as VBASIC. Is this available somewhere?

Thanks

Hello,

Apologies, we're still putting the finishing touches on the software. I will post download links here and on the website in the next few hours.

If all the LEDs are up and your machine still displays the expected picture ;-) then it couldn't be any more correct than that!

As my friend already mentioned - we'll add more links and source code, etc. but for now I just released VBASIC on CSDB:

Header files, utility routines, VBASIC source code, and first programming examples are now available at https://github.com/madhackerslab.

We will be adding more throughout the weekend.

Awesome. I will try out the software and try and remember my C64 assembler, it's been a few years since I last did some.

I got all the demos to work! Smile For completeness, it might be nice for the bin/ to be pre-populated in the vbasic repo, and for all pre-built binaries to be named with a .prg extension (unless there's a reason they shouldn't that I'm not thinking of). But I was able to build (with cc65), rename, and transfer the demos without difficulty.

Hello! Good to hear that everything is fine. Smile

You're right about the filenames, I'll sort out the repo tomorrow. Please expect more examples landing before the weekend.
