#167863 Github/pastebin installer

Posted by bigspaceballs on 12 March 2014 - 05:44 PM in Ask a Pro

Hi fellow coders,

My friend and I are working on a OS for CC, and I don't mean to sound like a noob, but we would like to know how to make an installer like all the good OS's. You know, where you post the installer on pastebin, and put the OS's files on github. How would we code an installer to tell it to install the needed files from github? Thanks to anyone who helps! :lol:



#167811 [V. 2.0.1][ICBM] CCMC Computercraft Missile Control

Posted by bigspaceballs on 12 March 2014 - 01:03 AM in Programs

Yeah, I could use some help. I just don't understand all the generators and stuff(I'm running 1.6.4, and mine came with mekanisham installed). Plus I tested it in creative mode(the mod, not the program), and I couldn't make the dang thing launch any missiles.

This looks cool. Had ICBM before, but could never figure out how to launch missiles. But this inspires me to learn now!



#167636 CCdesk, or CCEmu?

Posted by bigspaceballs on 09 March 2014 - 11:16 PM in General

Hi, I was just wondering if any one could give me a link to a working version of the CCDesk or the CCEmu Computercraft emulators?



#167635 Arrow keys wont work!

Posted by bigspaceballs on 09 March 2014 - 11:13 PM in Ask a Pro

View Postvalithor, on 09 March 2014 - 10:49 PM, said:

When you hit the arrow keys using that code you posted did nothing happen or did it return a nil value. If it did return a nil value it would just print a blank line and the program would end.

Computer craft has a Keys api and if it is returning a nil value then for some strange reason your laptop is most likely is pulling from a slot in the keys api table that is not normally used. I do not know why it would do this but that would explain it not working.
Nothing would happen. Thats what was weird about it. I would press the up arrow key, and you would return some number, then I pressed the left arrow key, and nothing happened. I was still in the lua prompt. same with the right one. It is like they dont work when I open up the computer interface.



#167587 CC emulator?

Posted by bigspaceballs on 09 March 2014 - 04:08 PM in Ask a Pro

CCDesk works for me, maybe because I already have the directory for it.
If you'd like, I can send you the stuff for CCDesk.
Yes, please could you send me the stuff for CCDesk, because when I go to the download page, it gives me access forbidden, because he took it down, so I would like you to send me the stuff I need. Thanks!



#167578 Gamax92's CCLite ComputerCraft Emulator (Updated for CC1.75)

Umm... your 1.6 beta version's link is broken.



#167575 CC emulator?

Posted by bigspaceballs on 09 March 2014 - 02:29 PM in Ask a Pro

Hi,
I have been looking through the forums trying to find a working emulator for CC, but I have had no luck. I need one because my computer runs MC at 15-20 fps, and my arrow keys don't work when I am editing code. I have found only one working emulator, CCLite, but I am not a big fan of it because you cant have multiple computers, there is no rom, and you cant use http. I was hoping to find one simalar to CCEmu, or CCDesk. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me find a working one.



#167515 Arrow keys wont work!

Posted by bigspaceballs on 09 March 2014 - 01:29 AM in Ask a Pro

I was using .1.5.7, and the arrows keys didn't work on that version. Then I went to the newest beta, and they haven't worked for me in that either. But I'll try reinstalling to see if that fixes anything anyways.

Do they work in Minecraft at all, eg. in the chat?
Yes, they work for everything else in minecraft. e.g: I had Zans minimap installed, and I bounded one of the keys to the left arrow key, and that worked. Like I said, It seems to be a hit or miss thing, it worked twice in the whole time I have had Computercraft. For what reason, I don't know, but I would like to figure it out.



#167488 Arrow keys wont work!

Posted by bigspaceballs on 08 March 2014 - 09:43 PM in Ask a Pro

I am trying to work on a project in LuaIDE, but it is rather hard to edit it because my left and right arrow keys dont work.
I saw a simalar post before and I tried what was suggested, which was to type into the lua program
"while true do print(table.concat({os.pullEvent()}, ", ")) end" but when I press the up and down keys, it returns a value to me. Same with all the other keys on my laptop, except for the left and right ones, which don't work for any computer or turtle in computecraft, yet I very badly need. I have gotten those two keys to work for me on only two occasions, and no, I do not have an unusual keyboard on my laptop. I event tried to connect a new usb keyboard to it, but it still didn't work! What should I do?



#167487 OS/GUI help.

Posted by bigspaceballs on 08 March 2014 - 09:07 PM in Ask a Pro

View PostCometWolf, on 08 March 2014 - 08:34 PM, said:

idk what version you're using but on mine (1.58) line 91 is this
function drawImage( tImage, xPos, yPos )
for y=1,#tImage do --here
  local tLine = tImage[y]
  for x=1,#tLine do
   if tLine[x] > 0 then
	term.setBackgroundColor( tLine[x] )
	drawPixelInternal( x + xPos - 1, y + yPos - 1 )
   end
  end
end
end

Now, looking over the loadImage function, it does not error if the file doesn't exist. It simply returns nil, therefore chances are your bground variable is nil, because the file "main.bground" does not exist.

I am using the newest beta, but my api looks exactly like yours. I checked, and the file does exist, but just to be sure, I renamed it just "background" and it still didn't work. I don't

know if this makes a difference, but I created a directory in the computer called "pantheon". Can it still load the api with it being in its own folder?



#167479 OS/GUI help.

Posted by bigspaceballs on 08 March 2014 - 08:09 PM in Ask a Pro

I need a some help on a program I am writing.
so am following this series of tutorials on how to create you own basic OS, and I have created the files, typed in the code and I get a message every time: "paintutils:92: attempt to get length of nil" and I have only written a small amount. I first created a title bar, and that showed up. Then I tried to add my paint file to it as a desktop background using paintutils, and it gives me that message, and I don't even have 92 lines of code yet! So I went and opened up the paintutils api file, went to line 92, and all that was there was "else"?
Here is my code (hopefully you can understand it):

-- Preload variables

slc = 0
tbarC = 8
tbartC = 1
backColor = 1
term.setBackgroundColor(backColor)
term.clear()

function titleBar() -- Draws the title bar at the top.
	   term.setCursorPos(1,1)
	  term.setBackgroundColor(tbarC)
	  term.setTextColor(tbartC)
	 term.clearLine()
	 term.setCursorPos(3, 1)
	 print("[Begin]")
end

function drawDesktop()
	  bground = paintutils.loadImage("main.bground")
	  paintutils.drawImage(bground,1,1)
	  titlebar()  
end

drawDesktop()

#167389 PDA help!

Posted by bigspaceballs on 07 March 2014 - 08:57 PM in Ask a Pro

Hi guys, I have a quick question. I just saw a post for a "To-do list for PDA's". I was unaware that computercraft had PDA's. Are they like an addon or something? Could someone please point me in the right direction for getting a PDA, because they sound cool.



#167229 OneOS Version 2 - The All in One Operating System

Posted by bigspaceballs on 06 March 2014 - 02:42 PM in Operating Systems

This is definitely the best OS I have seen yet!. But I just have one question for you. You have inspired me to try to create my own OS, and I hope you don't mind, but I would like to use the lua IDE and Sketch to help create it. It will only be for personal use only, so I wont release it, but I wanted to make the I cons for the programs in Sketch, and I am new to programming in lua, but if I wanted to load and draw the image on the desktop, which API would I use? Would it just be the regular paintutils.load/drawImage? Or is it something different? I read the documentation on Github, but I couldn't find an answer. Also, I want to use the fLib API, but I don't understand how to use the loadAPI API in lua IDE, could you please give me an example? Would it just be

"if OneOS then
OneOS.LoadAPI('/rom/assets/lua/API/fLib.lua')
end"?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
