Good work Glufke. Great idea! I hope you continue possibilities to extend this cool development! Cool

I wanted to try it in real using my GR8NET, but I also got the 'Direct statement in file" message"... Sad

Thanks. I finished the upgrade to MSX2 instagr8.
It's the same software, it detects if you have a MSX1 or MSX2. (SCREEN8).
I still have to make a video and upload the code to github.
But I'm kind of too busy these days.

Here is a sample:

Would it be OK if I create a sdcc VERSION of the MSX client for UNAPI?

Yes, please! This would open up LOTS of new users for this! Including clients of a very dear friend of mine who's one of the people who sells MSX network adapters. You know who you are. Wink

Curious, I don't have a GR8NET and I didn't look at the program, the API it uses for HTTP is GR8NET-specific?

The BASIC program only works with gr8net, because I’m using the OPEN”http provided by gr8net. But the server could work with any other cartridge. Maybe my next goal should be a UNAPI version made in Fusion C. This way it would work in all adapters. (Next goal accepted!)

But I don’t believe that the UNAPI version will be that fast.
I’m using CALL NETBLOAD of gr8net. This loads a file using HTTP and stores in gr8net internal RAM. Then I copy this chunk of memory directly to the VRAM. All this process is extremely fast. I don’t think UNAPI would do it like gr8net.... but who knows?

I think you copied the wrong YouTube link. Here is the review that I found in your list.
Thanks for the video!

Hey glufke, is the server up? I'm implementing a SDCC / UNAPI version of it and up to yesterday I could easily access it and generate the image files and download, but today, even though the php returns the text after I send session number and user, the files are not being generated, neither the CHR or CLR... But the files generated for the test session number I was using yesterday are still there and accessible... (session 123)

It almost seems like it is grabing the text and sending back, but the conversion is failing and files are not being generated...?

The problem doesn't seem to be that... Ok, if I use my instagram account, ducasp, it will fail generating the first image (N=1) and getting the file will fail miserably... Perhaps you can look into your server code why it is doing that? Using your account or hashtags, it is working fine on MSX1, now working on the new MSX2 format... Tongue

By the way, I've released the first version of InstaGR8 for UNAPI:

https://www.msx.org/forum/msx-talk/software/instagr8-instagr...

It probably is not as fast as the Basic version even on GR8NET as it is not using the specific GR8NET features, but works really nice on SM-X and even though slow with Obsonet, it works on it as well, so it is an option to anyone that doesn't have a GR8NET. :)

Thanks for allowing this port @glufke!

Hi @ducasp
The json that Instagram returns is not like “infinite scroll”, so after some posts it reaches the end. I still have to work in a way of returning errors or exceptions from the server side to client. For now it works as a concept but it still needs a lot of work.

Since now there is the UNAPI version, any changes to the server will request a version number, so it will not corrupt previous versions of it. I still have to upload parts of the server.

Thanks for the good work!
