Hi,

Today,while I was searching for posts related to vesa programming
I ran across this post,I tried to download VBETest.zip , but It seems there is a problem with the server,

at osdev after the merge with MT,any way,does anyone of you gus has this file?

Thanx.

The domain mentioned on that post is a good hint, his name is Rob Lohman - unfortunately it would seem that he dropped off the face of the earth mid 2006.

Try sending him an email, maybe he's not dead.

EDIT: He's recently been active on the forum REDUSER.net.

Well,I'm interested in vesa programming in general, also I'm interested in fonts and
characters in graphics mode.

PS:I'm coding my os now in protected mode.

Thanx.

I'm still alive and lurking around :)

My server is indeed offline (I moved half way across the world and haven't found the time yet to put a server up again), but I should still have all the files and will see if I can find that archive for you this weekend.

There are some problems with the code but if you're interested in using a linear frame buffer and higher resolutions then it does show how to do that.

Any suggestions on one of those free services I could upload the file to?

Cheers,

Rob

If you could please upload (some) of your files in one ZIP or TAR archive in a place like RapidShare or Megaupload I could copy it in my server and host it as a mirror if it helps.

Can guests see attachments? If not, that would limit the access and would need to be moved elsewhere later.

Hmmm, having a hard time finding this and other files. I must be forgetting about a backup somewhere :)

I've found my VBE sample code and have attached it to this post. Enjoy!

I had to delete mkisofs from the archive to fit it within the 64 KB attachment limit on the forum

Hey, thanks a lot indeed.

I also looked for it like a year ago and was left waiting until now. Certainly it will be of good use.

By the way, it looks like there is a very old partial cache of your visuar.com website at www.archive.org, but not these files.
