I've recently received a GFX9000 card; but I'm having some trouble with it. I've been able to lauch picview and seems that the card is working fine; but till now it has been impossible to launch the PowerBASIC or demos from the demodisk. Of course I'm using a TurboR (ST); but I need something more to launch PowerBASIC?, every time I try it it shows an error "direct statement in file", could be the disk damaged or incomplete?.
Also, I've been looking for a GFX9K noob guide, how to install?, how to make some simple programs? and so on; but without luck...

Maybe the disk is faulty. Try to copy to another. If it is faulty, i can send you an image.
I think on the disk there should be some program to load GBASIC. If i am not wrong it was for Turbo-R.
To get info on the card, http://map.tni.nl/resources/ is a good start. There are some libraries made arround by AIRAM.
Also, try on the Sunrise page. You can download a lot of soft for it http://www.msx.ch/sunformsx/
Original documents from Yamaha are too extensive and programing examples are few.

How to install? Oo

Useful resources have been mentioned. If you have more concrete questions, just ask them here Smile

(And yes, it seems your disk is broken. But it's easy to get PowerBasic, I suppose?)

Thanks for the info!. I've been browsing all of this sites lately; but I overlooked them cause the PowerBASIC in the Sunrise page seems pretty different of the one supplied with the card. Now I've just download this file and I've found that my disk labelled "G.BASIC/PowerBASIC" misses some files that the LZH downloaded has. So I'm going to replace it and see what happens. Anyway I'll be happy to find full diskimages of the damaged disks...

Bwahahahahaha!

Can you write asm?

Sure!

How to install?

eeeerm....bad expression here....it would be more appropiate "How to set-up the card being a total noob?", all that stuff about that funny extra RGB connector and how to launch in less than a minute a colourfull demo to lure the friend that has come to see your new toy... Tongue

WEll, just connect the connector to a monitor and run some GFX9000 program Smile

PowerBasic is completely different than G-Basic, btw.

Could be possible, that I have similiar problems like Jltursan, but "Underwater demo" works fine Smile
Is it possible to download the XTAZY intro/preview somewhere???
