...means I will make one more userpic. Too bad userpics are limited to 40k, and not 768k.

I don't remember what Renaissance demo this is from, but it's also in the credits of Zone 66.

Also, here's about 15 minutes of headache solved: convert input.png -crop WxH+X+Y +repage output.png

hacking MIDI port reading functionality into MZX to yield sequenced visualisation results. Feasible?

Uh, how did I miss this comment? Anyway.

My intuition is that you'd need to access the MIDI hardware at a lower level than SDL. /dev/sequencer on linux, or... some.. win32 API on windows. Provided that SDL_input doesn't eat it, I mean.

Looks like you got something working from that post? How?

I used the WinMM lib, Windows handles a midi event, calls a CALLBACK function.
the CALLBACK function is directly updating the MZX environment variables.

This yields the interesting possibility that the "last midi message" will have changed _during_ a robot's execution I think.

Anyways, now I can make cool oldskool textmode visualisations for my next live act! Gotta tidy up and release the code first though.
