Basinc 1.794

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, the bug is also cleared. There are still other minor code fixes but they are not worth writing.

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).

Warning! Do not overwrite your snippets file! (BasinCSnips.dat is provided for first timers only. I’m going to change the file behaviour in the next release.)

JPG2PDF or Image to Pdf..

Actually, it’s just jpeg to print 😀
I needed to convert a large number of jpeg files into a pdf document and I did not want to use an online service for these tasks. But I couldn’t find a free tool for this simple process either. There must be, but I couldn’t find it. Anyway, I wrote it myself, anyone can use it.

This tool does not offer any setting mechanism as it uses the default settings of your printer. For this reason, do not forget to set your printer’s settings from the control panel beforehand.

I recommend using Microsoft Print to PDF for PDF output. It’s free and comes installed on the latest versions of windows.

Of course, you can also use other printers.

We also observed that the images on a friend’s computer were incomplete, but we could not find the reason. Good luck if you find it.

How to use?

1. Drag and drop images into the window.
2. If necessary, you can sort the files alphabetically (sort button)
On the 3rd side, choose a printer, preferably “Microsoft Print to PDF”
4. Print by pressing the print button.

İstanbul Efsaneleri: Lale Savaşçıları Amiga version is Cracked.

Well, it’s just a very quick crack and the game is in Turkish. A little background about the game, it’s originally written with Amos Pro 2.0 around 1995, later the game had been ported to PC DOS and Windows as CDROM version.
This one is Amiga 500 version, pretty iconic Turkish game. It has been welded into Turkish retrogaming culture. Cracked version is only tested on Kickstart 1.3 and 1MB of ram (most common amiga configuration).

As I said, this is a quick crack, it may or may not work. Game manual and original disk images can be found on the internet.

Purebasic for Amiga Syntax Highlighter

Last week, with a group of friends examined different development possibilities for Amiga. We were searching for small footprint (low memory usage) soultions. Then we stumbled upon -now deprecated version of- purebasic.

It worked and performed fine, yet developing under winuae with 25 year old environment was pain in the ass.

Then I decided to create a PureBasic Amiga syntax highligter for notepad++. It includes all documented commands for Amiga version of Purebasic 4.00.

Download Purebasic Amiga UDL XML file

To use this file, goto notepad++, Languages > Define Your Language > Import… and select provided xml file. RESTART notepad++ before use.

Ufuk Metin’s Flagmania (made between 1988-1995)

Flagmaina is a breed between snake and labyrinth. You control smiley character, once you move out of a block you cannot go back and it’s marked as gray. You have to collect all the flags and proceed to exit (E).

it’s a fun little game but it has only one level, and the title page mentions “when it’s finished, it will have 50 levels in total”. Yet another game idea went to bust.

Ufuk Metin’s Master Tetris (1995)

Master Tetris is a unfinished tetris clone from “Accuracy Arts” which is a faux-company/Group created by Ufuk Metin.

The game features smooth scrolling tetris blocks, and stats display and very playable. But the game cannot keep scores and will crash on game over. Other than that level progression works.

I can see the atari’s arcade tetris influence on this game.

You can find more info and more screenshots on Turkish version of this post.

An alternative screen grabber: pirateScreenShot

Pirate Screen Shot (PSS) is a screenshot tool for happy pirates. It may be used to create series of screenshots, for example, online presentations, books or parts of a website.

PSS can remember areas of screen to capture, can click buttons to turn or scroll the page. It has a very simple scripting language to create batch captures.

Do not use this tool to create illegal backups of ebooks. To prevent hi-quality copying, this tool only saves screengrabs as JPG images.
