There is not much in this update. First of all, you’ll see a few improvements to the UDG Editor that DamienG requested.
Second, while making a few fixes about the SimpleCON device, a bug is also fixed.
But if you came here via BasinC’s own update check reminder, congratz (to both of us)! it’s good right =) Please leave a comment. Do you think basinc will benefit from improved internet functions? And mention your own ideas. (if you are not–don’t forget to enable update check under Tools > Basinc Options > Basinc Network).

How to manually install?
Just unzip the file somewhere you have write access to. (basin keep backups your programs automatically in autoback folder).
How to upgrade?
Unzip this archive into a *new* folder. Carry your old “basinc.ini” file so your settings could be retained.
This archive does not include a basinc.ini configuration file, it will not overwrite it. But it has include snippets file. Be careful not to overwrite your old snippets.dat file.
// 1.79.2 (19.05.2022)
// Added – Basin Update Check (disabled by default, enable in Options) – basin can now notify updates.
// 1.79.1 (19.05.2022)
// Added – BasinC Snippets
// Changed – SimpleCon behaviour. Not port 1515 commands sets the byte *then* increment the index. Port 1259,0 feeds the line to the log instead of 255. See examples folder.
// 1.78 (24.10.2021)
// Fixed – IF x THEN REM couldn’t parsed by basinc, now patched, but may present new issues, due it’s just a workaround.
// Fixed – When you execute a direct command, basic was corrupted temporarily. It’s fixed by removing a wild syntax cropper.
Well, this one is again just a quick update. Some bug fixes and minor improvoments.
A visible addendum is Project Notes Editor. It’s just a workaround to add remarks/comments to your project. Note that comments will only saved with BAS files.
Also I’ve added keyboard toggle options for tool windows. For more information please see the changelog below.
BasinC Emulator 1.77 – Download
A reminder: This archive does not contain basinc.ini file. You may copy your old ini file into basinc 1.77 folder or basinc will create a new ini file for you.
Do not merge old basinc folder with this one. Create a clean folder for this version to work.
If you desperately need your old preferences, just rename your old basin.ini file as basinC.ini and copy it into new basinc 1.7 folder. Basinc will upgrade your ini file as it exits. Some of your preferences may be lost in the process.
// BasinC v1.7 20.11.2017
// Added new toolbar buttons
// Added toggle breakpoint navigation buttons (see view menu)
// Added auto backup feature. Basinc saves your work in the background every 3 minutes.
// it keeps 10 copies going back up to 30 minutes in /autoback folder.
// To turn this feature off, use: Options > Filing > Auto Backup
// Changed – Basinc now requires basinC.bin and basinC.ini rather than old basin.ini.
This release is an untested alpha release (ok, actually, every basin release might be marked as Alpha).
Not worth for 1.7 glory, you may see some icons missing and some functionalities reduced because I planned to make them better, yet failed to complete all the work. Basinc demands more time that I don’t have.
The project is not abandoned. V1.7 will hit the sinclair basic scene someday in the future 😀
btw. I can accept fancier toolbar icons. Comment or email me if you are interested.
Please read the readme and what’s new file in the archive.
Please note, if help doesn’t show up, you should unblock the chm archive. Just go to the basinc directory, right click “basin.chm” file and choose “Unblock”.
