  • #161 ✎ 91 niconii Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Expert Programmer Programming no longer gives me any trouble. Come to me for help, if you like! Programming Strength Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies I'm curious what the aspect ratio parameter is for, whether it's actually a Petitcom 4 program or just some Pasocom Mini program they put up as an example. Does it just stretch the screen to that aspect ratio? Posted
  • #162 ✎ 1538 12Me21 Admin Syntax Highlighter Received for creating the code syntax highlighter on SBS Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself Second Year My account is over 2 years old Website the highlighter colors in that screenshot are different than the default colors (at least on SB 3DS). I wonder if they're going to change the default colors (I just hope they pick something different for strings, so that they don't look exactly like functions) Posted Edited by 12Me21
  • #163 ✎ 91 niconii Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Expert Programmer Programming no longer gives me any trouble. Come to me for help, if you like! Programming Strength Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies Some scans have appeared, though unfortunately they're missing the interview at the bottom: https://twitter.com/bk2128/status/999321324219645952 Still, I've transcribed what's in the scans here. There's not much new information because the article mostly just explains what SmileBASIC is, rather than what's new about this particular version, but there's a few noteworthy things:
    1. The file browser screenshot shows folders called IMAGE and SOUND inside what looks like the SYS folder, which seems to suggest nested folders are possible.
    2. A "support function" is mentioned that's designed to help beginners learn programming little by little. I think it might be referring to something along the lines of the Miiverse community, but I'm not sure.
    3. The screenshot with an editor and help box has very small editor text, with about 85 lines on-screen, consistent with a 720p resolution using 8x8 text. In other words, this is probably WIDTH 8 text and the other editor screenshots are WIDTH 16 text. OSP and QSP contests aren't gonna be quite as impressive on this thing...
    4. The WIDTH 16 editor screenshots use the same 8x8 font but upscaled, unlike Petitcom BIG which had a 16x16 font. Strangely enough, though, the help box does seem to use BIG's font.
    5. In general, the help box is too small and blurry for me to read in these scans, but there's mention of "mouse and tablet input", so the photo of someone using a keyboard and mouse does seem to be accurate, even if the photo itself is probably a mock-up for the article (I mean, why are they clicking on the software keyboard with their mouse? They have a keyboard right there!).
    In fact, I think it's notable that everything from the screenshots on Petitcom 4's page to the editor screen in this article points to this running at 720p. Though it's possible it runs at 1080p when docked, I actually think they're intentionally going for 720p in both modes, to avoid the situation where a program is made for a 1080p resolution and has to be downscaled to 720p when undocked, blurring everything in the process.

  • #165 ✎ 91 niconii Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Expert Programmer Programming no longer gives me any trouble. Come to me for help, if you like! Programming Strength Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies I went and did the math for each screen size in characters, taking into account the 32 pixel margin on top, the 4 character margin on the left, and the 1 character margin on the bottom.
    1. WIDTH 8, landscape, full: 156x85
    2. WIDTH 8, landscape, split: 76x85 each
    3. WIDTH 16, landscape, full: 76x42
    4. WIDTH 16, landscape, split: 36x42 each
    5. WIDTH 8, portrait, full: 86x155
    6. WIDTH 16, portrait, full: 41x77
    And for comparison:
    1. WIDTH 8, 3DS: 46x29
    2. WIDTH 16, 3DS: 21x14
    This is without the software keyboard, which hides the bottom 360 pixels in landscape mode, and the bottom 544 pixels in portrait mode.

    I spot ... * Kawa no Kuma-san icon * Unidentified floating logo * Calculator icon
    The "Unidentified floating logo" is probably the Solid Gunner title screen.

Programming Strength Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies https://twitter.com/notohoho/status/1025922736512585728 Some interesting tweets, not sure how much of this is new info:
    1. Although the Switch version isn't compatible with the 3DS/Wii U versions' code, they're considering letting you read 3DS/Wii U public keys to facilitate porting programs over.
    2. Each GRP page will be 32-bit color (8-bit alpha) with a resolution of 2048x2048. (3DS was 16-bit 512x512, Wii U was 32-bit(?) 1024x1024)
    3. At least at the moment, the Switch version is a bit faster than the Wii U version, and expressiveness is improved a bit.
    4. Sprites, BG, text, and graphics will be reorganized/consolidated.

    Tables are basically fancy arrays and look up object orientated programming

    I’m kind of disappointed that SmileBASIC 4 won’t be compatible with SmileBASIC 3’s code. But at least there will be more uses to commands because of this (I hope).
