QUESTIONS & ANSWERS by Richard Karsmakers
This time, you'll note that there are very few questions nor
answers. This is not only due to the fact that people seem to
know everything they want to know at the moment, but also because
some of the GfA Basic questions have been tranfered to the "GfA
Basic Tips & Tricks" column.
We've got one really tough question. We program quite a lot, but
we still have not found out how we can move the mousepointer on
the screen (without moving the desk or mouse itself). It is sure
that this can be done (it is done in e.g. "N-Vision" and "Music
Studio"). Please help us to find it out!
The "Strike-a-Light" group
I also have one question, that is still left unanswered: What
does VDIBASE stand for? How long is this area of memory? Are
there some interesting POKEs? Which memory location does what?
How do I use "Music Studio" songs in self-written programs?
The "Strike-a-Light" group and
How do I use smooth scrolling animation or 100% transparent PUT

I fear you'll have to wait for the next issue of ST NEWS, in
which these problems will both be tackled (at least, so we hope)
in the "GfA Basic Tips & Tricks" column. See you then!
The text of the articles is identical to the originals like they appeared in old ST NEWS issues. Please take into consideration that the author(s) was (were) a lot younger and less responsible back then. So bad jokes, bad English, youthful arrogance, insults, bravura, over-crediting and tastelessness should be taken with at least a grain of salt. Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated. Due to the fact that these pages are not actually contained in an Atari executable here, references to scroll texts, featured demo screens and hidden articles may also be irrelevant.
