I'm considering putting together a garden-related online workshop over the winter. I'd love to know which of these topics would interest folks the most.

@zce GT Alpina! I built that site and a couple other Grilli ones. Those guys are great.

@neauoire glad to see that merveilles has its own flavor of dank meme

My first project! A moon phase tracker (more novelty than accurate).

I wrote a little script to get your large indexed images out of GIMP and into uxn: gemini://gemini.sensorstation.

Special thanks to @brendan and @alderwick for the math help!

@alderwick 🤩 Unbelievably helpful! I love the learning and sharing on Merveilles, absolutely the best community. Thanks Andy!

@alderwick I see that this logic works exactly the same for shorts.
(0x0190 times 0x00c0 = 0x012c00, POP = 0x012c)
(400 times ¾ = 300)

However, that third byte in 0x012c00 presents a problem for Uxn. MUL4 does not exist, so do you have any tips on accomplishing the same thing with shorts without having to summon a demon? I'm imagining the solution looks like a gnarly mess of shifting and popping, and I have no clue how to make the highest bits carry over into something bigger than a short...

@zce a long time ago I inherited a printing press and it came with 16pt and 12pt (I think) Melior. Two full type cases of lead. Such a beautiful typeface, by far the best one I had. Those days are gone now, had to pass the press along to someone who could get more use out of it.

@alderwick @millihertz EXCELLENT! Thank you everyone!!! I should have something cool to share soon!

@neauoire Thanks for the direction! I'll post something when I get it figured out.

I've got a bunch of values between 0-255 and I need them all scaled uniformly down by x. I'm guessing x would be an integer between 0-255 where 0 represents 0.0 and 255 represents 1.0. If that can be done with integer multiplication, I'd love to know how.

Uxn folks:

Maybe my brain is just dragging today.

I have a bunch of bytes in the range 0-255 that I need to scale down uniformly by some coefficient. In the absence of floats, how would I do this?

Meet #Slight: the serious bitmap font editor for #uxn fonts!

It's not ready for release yet as it needs serious refactoring, but all the features are in place and it's perfect for designing and extensively testing new fonts!

Check out this quick 1-minute video:

@brendan I'm excited to try out starling. Looks very exciting, impressive work!

@neauoire I am familiar with F2, but I'm having trouble visualizing the stack sometimes. If I could set a breakpoint and watch the stack in the debugger as I step through a few instructions, and then resume execution, I think that would make it easier to see where I caused an underflow or something.

I am familiar with the existence of the CLI in the sense that I can run roms and print to the console, but not any debugging tools beyond printing.
