The Campus / inc2l.exe - Ordinal Not Found
« Last post by anta40 on Today at 02:28:02 PM »
I'm on 64-bit Windows 10
When running the MASM32 installer (building the libs), I got several message boxes. One of them is:

"inc2l.exe - Ordinal Not Found"
"The ordinal 201 could not be located in the dynamic link library C:\Windows\AppPatch\AcGenral.DLL"

My only AV is Windows Defender, and previously I already had the real time protection disabled.
Anyone ever encounter this?

The feast of Sinterklaas celebrates the name day of Saint Nicholas on 6 December. The feast is celebrated annually with the giving of gifts on St. Nicholas' Eve (5 December) in the northern parts of the Netherlands and on the morning of 6 December, Saint Nicholas Day, in the southern provinces of the Netherlands, as well as Belgium, Luxembourg and northern France (French Flanders, Lorraine and Artois). The tradition is also celebrated in territories of the former Dutch Empire, including Curaçao and Suriname.

Sinterklaas is based on the historical figure of Saint Nicholas (270–343), a Greek bishop of Myra in present-day Turkey.

You forgot some countries ;)

I just noticed I forgot to mention that everything is working correctly for me now, in case anyone thought there was still a problem.

Also waiting breathlessly for 2.47 :)

yeah Alfonso, our ancestors had a little bit of a fight.

The Eighty Years' War (Dutch: Tachtigjarige Oorlog; Spanish: Guerra de los Ochenta Años) or Dutch War of Independence (1568–1648)was a revolt of the Seventeen Provinces of what are today the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg against the political and religious hegemony of Philip II of Spain, the sovereign of the Habsburg Netherlands. After the initial stages, Philip II deployed his armies and regained control over most of the rebelling provinces. Under the leadership of the exiled William the Silent, the northern provinces continued their resistance. They eventually were able to oust the Habsburg armies, and in 1581 they established the Republic of the Seven United Netherlands. The war continued in other areas, although the heartland of the republic was no longer threatened; this included the beginnings of the Dutch Colonial Empire, which at the time were conceived as carrying overseas the war with Spain. After a 12-year truce in which the Dutch Republic achieved de facto recognition, hostilities broke out again around 1619, which can be said to coincide with the Thirty Years' War. An end was reached in 1648 with the Peace of Münster (a treaty part of the Peace of Westphalia), when the Dutch Republic was definitively recognised as an independent country. The Republic had already been recognized by Spain and the major European powers at the occasion of the Twelve Years' Truce of 1609. The Peace of Münster was also the start of the Dutch Golden Age.

I do not know what it is, but I imagine it will be the unnamable group. One can shit in the holy catholic church, but friend, who dares to do the same in the unnamable?

Yes, I meant the Muslims.

The feast of Sinterklaas celebrates the name day of Saint Nicholas on 6 December. The feast is celebrated annually with the giving of gifts on St. Nicholas' Eve (5 December) in the northern parts of the Netherlands and on the morning of 6 December, Saint Nicholas Day, in the southern provinces of the Netherlands, as well as Belgium, Luxembourg and northern France (French Flanders, Lorraine and Artois). The tradition is also celebrated in territories of the former Dutch Empire, including Curaçao and Suriname.

Sinterklaas is based on the historical figure of Saint Nicholas (270–343), a Greek bishop of Myra in present-day Turkey.
Later moved to Madrid in Spain. He is depicted as an elderly, stately and serious man with white hair and a long, full beard. He wears a long red cape or chasuble over a traditional white bishop's alb and sometimes red stola, dons a red mitre and ruby ring, and holds a gold-coloured crosier, a long ceremonial shepherd's staff with a fancy curled top. He traditionally rides a white horse.
Sinterklaas carries a big, red book in which is written whether each child has been good or naughty in the past year.

All children regardless with or without religion ( except the Jehovah witnesses ) share this feast.
At age 7-8 the children are told by their parents and school teachers that Sinterklaas is not a true story and doesn't exist.

The festivities traditionally begin each year in mid-November (the first Saturday after 11 November), when Sinterklaas "arrives" by a steamboat at a designated seaside town, from Madrid in Spain.
In the Netherlands this takes place in a different port each year, whereas in Belgium it always takes place in the city of Antwerp. The steamboat anchors, then Sinterklaas disembarks and parades through the streets on his horse, welcomed by children cheering and singing traditional Sinterklaas songs. His Zwarte Piet assistants throw candy and small, round, gingerbread-like cookies, either kruidnoten or pepernoten, into the crowd. The event is broadcast live on national television in the Netherlands and Belgium.

Sinterklaas is the primary source of the popular Christmas icon of Santa Claus.

I watched the Sinterklaas movie too, cool movie.  :badgrin:

In reality Spain did not occupy The Netherlands. Due to the marriage policy of Spain with other European royal houses, Carlos I was born, the heir to the throne of Spain, in Ghent (Belgium). Subsequently, due to the lack of offspring in this house, he was also the heir to the throne of several European territories, to which belonged what we now know as the Netherlands.

Here are the European territories of Charles I due exclusively to dynastic rights:


When Carlos I died or V of Germany and happened to him in the throne Felipe II, this one not even knew to be expressed in the language of this territory (and it does not surprise to me), reason why was considered a stranger. For this and other reasons, the Flanders war happened.

There is a beautiful painting about it drawn by one of the greatest painters of all history, Velázquez. It's in the Prado Museum, in Madrid. The painting is called The Surrender of Breda.


In it one sees in the foreground General Espinola in the service of Spain accepting with courtesy the surrender of Justin Nassau, of the Orange house, delivering the keys of the city.

Interestingly, San Nicolás or Sinterklaas in Dutch is the Santa Claus in Holland. He seems to be a saint who lives in Madrid, Spain, and is loaded with sweets for Dutch children.

A couple of years ago I saw a horror movie about San Nicolás. Curious.

In my lifetime I never experienced any serious friction between different religions.
Think we are a tolerant country compared to other countries.
Although there is one migrant group that's not willing to integrate and participate in Dutch society.

The Workshop / Multiply matrix 1xM by MxM real4 for sizes M=4,6,8
« Last post by RuiLoureiro on Today at 04:41:40 AM »
Hi all,
       Here we have 3 particular cases to multiply any vector 1x4, 1x6 or 1x8 by the square matrix
       4x4, 6x6 and 8x8 using SSE/FPU instructions. Now, using these examples, you may write
       any other particular case.

      The procedures are inside the files .inc
      By lines:

                                                multiply1xM_MxMCol_v1.exe/asm

    Please test it in your CPU (i5/i7/AMD).

The Campus / Re: palettemaking with masm
« Last post by daydreamer on Today at 04:06:55 AM »
i have had a great deal of success with 256-color code
not surprisingly, working with 256-color DIB's is considerably faster than full-color images
that is why i have spent so much time developing versatile palettes
I just want to put together several codings to one complete tiny program
goals I had is make an assembly game and when I came in touch with masm32 programming I also want to make a tiny 1k or 4k or 64k demo

you can use binary values in define statements easily
it will require more work, of course

that must be an old book  :lol:

windows would only do that if your display settings were set to 256-colors
that may have been practical back in the win95/98 days, when EGA and VGA adapters were relatively new
(they needed to reserve desktop colors for things like start menu, taskbar, icon text,  etc)

nowdays, almost any display system allows for at least 16-bit color
so, no color index dedication is required
