Speed Improvements for Coco basic !


Recommended Posts

Good news ! I am working on a patch that will increase the speed of coco basic by up to 2000x faster !

This will make your basic games and programs run much faster.. the catch ?  I am pulling off the training wheels ..

Example 1

Every time you use the set command for pixel graphics it check for ( )  it checks if you entered values larger than 63 or 31 ... it checks if you asked for a color >8   it checks if you are hitting break..   if you do any of these things it gives you a error..

Now SET 60,40,3  Or SET X,Y,C 

Runs faster and uses less memory instead of SET(x,y,c)


The program puts your coco in all ram mode and writes the new code over the "PRINT USING" space .
