This gives a syntax error:

Colour C,$FFF-(C*$100)


This is OK:

Colour C,$FFF-(C*256)

  • With my AMOS Code, when I want to compile it with AMOS2 Compiler, I have errors on the "Shared" statement. V1=23:X=0:Y=0:LIFE=5 Dim MAP(121) Shared V1,MAP(),X,Y,LIFE >> Syntax error here But on Amiga and AMOS Pro, that's works very well. Will "Shared"statement be available? Thanks.
  • A new version is out! It has the wrong date; it says 05/05/19 - Now fixed with 07/07/19 version. ------------ I've copied the A1200 manifest into it and compiled a program. It's giving a syntax error on an input line: locate 19,22:input pw$ ------------ It looks like co-ords are working better, as pixel co-ords now match the bob/sprite co-ords. Bobs are now showing much smaller. Possibly too small, but I'll do some testing on that. - Now fixed. The scaling was wrong. ------------ main.amos:181:18: error: syntax error main.amos:182:18: error: syntax error main.amos:184:14: error: syntax error main.amos:185:47: error: syntax error for check=1 to bobson a#=abs(x#-( bpos #(check,1)))^2 b#=abs(y#-( bpos #(check,2)))^2 dist#=sqr(a#+b#) area#=63* bz #(check) if (dist#<area# and dist#<>0) and (abs(z#- bz #(check))<0.05) then hit=1 next check ------------ Not sure if PAL screen should work yet, but I'm still having to use the tiny NTSC 200 pixel high one. I noticed PAL mentioned in the manifest, and I tried changing the screen to 256 high in there. - PAL screen seems to work now
  • Hi there, I downloaded the most recent build (2019-07-13), and followed the Quick Start instructions, but I needed to manually install the pngjs library. If you hit F5 in the Code workspace without doing this, you get: Error: Cannot find module 'pngjs' Require stack: - c:\Development\amos-2\compiler\utilities.js - c:\Development\amos-2\compiler\messages.js - c:\Development\amos-2\compiler\amosc.js at Function.Module._resolveFilename (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:625:15) at Function.Module._load (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:527:27) at Module.require (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:683:19) at require (internal/modules/cjs/helpers.js:16:16) at Object.<anonymous> (c:\Development\amos-2\compiler\utilities.js:21:7) at Module._compile (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:776:30) at Object.Module._extensions..js (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:787:10) at Module.load (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:643:32) at Function.Module._load (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:556:12) at Module.require (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:683:19) I fixed this by entering the amos-2 folder and running: npm install pngjs I'm running NodeJS v12.6.0.
