A question about SPAM

Hi!  I just subscribed to this forum and want to confess to those here who don't know me that I have a bad habit of SPAMming forums.  I am womndering what the best way to inform this community about my projects is without getting the message deleted.

It would be to discuss your project in-depth, not just link to it. 
 

What are you working on?

Thank you.  I'm working on

Thank you.  I'm working on the following or plannng to port them to the Apple2:

 

*  AuxMemApple, a memory extension for cc65

*  ProDOSi, an API for ProDOS under cc65

*  Fields, an UI library providing dialog-like and menu support to cc65 programs

*  printtok, a puts() substitute that prints strings containing tokens and expands the tokens to given strings

*  A2SimpleIO, a printf() substitute that uses the OS directly and performs almost no extra processing

*  AdvSkel65, a text adventure "skeleton" around which you can build a text adventure

*  MadLibApple, a MadLib program for the Apple2 containing eight stories

I already have versions of

I already have versions of A2SimpleIO and Fields online.  They are at c65 additions - Manage /ui at SourceForge.net.  I also have the CBM version of printtok.c there, but I don't know if it will work on the Apple2.  Try them out!

Re:A question about SPAM

When I got to your SourceForge Link, I tried to use GIT to clone your Repo..   It is an Empty Repo...

 Mecurial and SVN Repos are also Empty...

Just download the .zip files.  I apparently created the sites the wrong way.  Sorry!  :(

I also have AltInput.  It is

I also have AltInput.  It is an alternate way to handle a line of input from the user.  Its support is limited, but it may be useful.  It is in the same location as Fields and A2SimpleIO.  Try it out!

Sorry, but newbies who post links...

Sorry, but newbies who post links here expecting folks to "just try it out" doesn't express a high confidence level for downloading ANYTHING without a good deal of discretion.

We do get a considerable amount of SPAM here at times.  When links are included, that's an easy red flag.

I suggest you upload a youtube video of what you have and start from there.  We can at least identify the URL with that.

I can't make a YouTube video,

I can't make a YouTube video, as I don't know how, so I will try to explain AltInput here.  It is a way to get a line of input from the user other than the routines included in the ROM.  It recognizes text, delete and Enter keys.  It will get user input into a provided pointer and return the length of the input.  It's nothing special but may be a useful alternative to the OS routines.

If you have a smart phone like Android or iPhone I think you can just shoot video with the normal camera function and then upload that to YouTube.  You probably have to sign up for an account there if you don't already have one.  There are some other builder project sites like hackster.io which also will host videos about software or hardware projects if you don't like YouTube.

They can, but then they don't play. (Tried with a video from my iPhone yesterday.)
