Wow, ULS has no pre-cache - thats news to me!

According to this notable expert ULS has no pre-cache option....

Which is odd, because I'm sure that the "ramdisk" flag is basically a pre-cache routine. In fact, as I wrote it, yes it is Tongue

Pretty much everything he's written on that thread is, as usual, a load of festering bollocks. Hey ho Smiley

I'd love to comment in that thread, but unfortunatly those Amiga people have taken over 2 days to validate my account (and still waiting) - however if Mr Troll has moved to the slanty-A machine then they are more than welcome to him and so-long and good riddance for us Smiley  Hey, we'll even do a prisoner exchange and take Doomaster off their hands if they promise to keep Mr Troll.

Quote:
Caching feature in WHDLoad is nice and useful feature. However, considering ULS, I don't see that it has it. I tried couple latest patches, like Armour-Geddon - and there says that uses Ramdisk because otherwise would be slow. Then Jim Power - if deactivate Ramdisk it loads much slower.


Well, firstly - his Armor Geddon doesn't even fucking work so he's got a mental problem for bashing mine and secondly Jim Power is on CD200, and doesn't use ULS you freaking retard and has RAMdisk forced on so you can't deactivate it! But thanks for downloading the CD you freak.

Quote:
I didn't look in sources about, and honestly don't care, but all mentioned says that no cashing there.


From the ULS docs:

Function: uls_update_rdsk
Allows the ULS ramdisk to be updated (append mode) or repopulated (replace mode)

Call with:
D0.L: 4 char ASCII of initial dir for RAMdisk
D1.W: Update Mode Flag
A0.L: Pointer to a filespec for Ramdisk


Call D0.L/A0.L
D0.L and A0.L are the same as required by D6.L and A5.L respectivly for the uls_init function

Call D1.W: Update Mode Flag
Set D1=-1 (negative) and the existing RAMdisk will be completely replaced with the new data.
Set D1=+1 (positive) and the existing RAMdisk will be appended. This is requires for multi directory games if you wish to cache both directories at setup time, as only one path can be specified in uls_init for ramdisk creation.
Note: The updated RAMdisk *MUST* fit inside the parameters specified in uls_init.


Is that not caching? Are you FUCKING RETARDED OR SOMETHING???? - I think we all know the answer to this one. Stop trying to take credit for other people's work yet again by re-inventing the wheel. Or better yet, show us the source code to your wonderful GAYEX system.... oh, you can't beacuse then we'd all see how much of ULS you ripped! (and fucked up in the process)

As usual, brains in the anal department.

Actually, creating the ramdisk feature was one of the first features we added to ULS, because the first experiment (aka F1GP) loaded quite slowly.

And, the option to turn it on/off of course exists because we don't want to increase the total memory footprint required. Contrary to what that fucktard says, most games do work with 1mb, but like WHDload when it gets tight in memory, loading will suffer a bit. Still it's more convenient than loading from floppy, right?

In conclusion, another one of Mr. Partition Wiper's FUD campaigns against us faces the cold hard facts and falls dead on its tracks Smiley.

Of course, most has no enough knowledge, but main problem is that people which does adaptations (patches) are not cooperative, actually some are much worse.

LOL, like: I take all the credit for your code and you still don´t like me! You´re so mean! Cheesy

He's right tho. He's the only one who does "adaptations" and he isn't co-operative or have enough knowledge.

I'd love to know how he can justify that statement when we've produced the ULS code over 4+ years of hard work and testing, and then given it away freely to the community, with full source code, documentation and continued support with constant updates while all his stuff is closed source, buggy, consistantly bad crap.

ULS is now every bit as mature, stable and feature rich as WHDload on the Amiga (which is a fantastic piece of code, btw) and it has proven itself time and time again as a rock solid platform for producing Falcon/HD fixed games, and is being used by more people than just us (Hi Klaz, Hi Phill from Fairlight!)

Right. Well, I wouldn't worry too much. According to Greek folklore troll season ends really soon so he'll be gone. Cheesy

Anyway, I just wish we could send him over to the jaguar scene. He'll be a perfect match.

He's been plauging you lot for years, just how long does a Troll season go on for?

i'm not too concerned, the backlash has begun on EAB, so I think it won't be long before he volunteers himself a hiatus to bother someone else.

He's asking some really stupid questions frankly.  How does him learning about partitions on Amiga help him to code his own ULS / WHDLoad style system?

I would have thought that by analysing Atari ST stuff would be the way to go, but it appears i'm very much mistaken in the belief that if you're going to code for a specific machine, learning about that machine is the way to go?!?!

Silly me!  Grin

Don't worry chaps, we won't wear him out too much, we know you want him back... though I doubt he will be in pristine condition Wink

Season of giving?  Did that include sexually transmitted diseases as well?

Some bloody season that was! Smiley

Seriously though, he's pissing us off, the jokes over, its no longer funny, we have standards don't you know... and your 'gift' falls way below that.

Damn it, we'll PAY for you to take him back!  Grin

Pperror is such an ass.  No one in the atari community wants to talk with him, so off he runs to the Amiga scene - to talk about his buggy and rather pointless Atari stuff!  Why does he bother?!

Aww they locked the thread. If he comes back to Atari-land you realise we will take the rejection of the gift as an Act of War?
