Unfortunately   enough,   only  questions  came  in  during   the 
development of this issue of ST NEWS;  come on,  readers,  please 
try to answer them as well!

I have some trouble with the FORM_ALERT function with the Lattice 
C  compiler.  It  does not give back the value  of  the  selected 
button  as it should be.  What can possibly go wrong with such  a 
simple function? Does the compiler support AES at all?

I  have  a Microvitec 1451 (RGB-TTL) color monitor,  but  when  I 
connect it to my ST I can only get 8 colors (RGB 000,  007,  070, 
700,  077,  707,  770  and 777).  I have tried working with  some 
resistors, but I can't get any more colors. Can someone help?

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 Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated.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.
