I’ve run into an error using the “SET ECHO” function of HTB 8.3 in Windows 98SE. This is used to put a crosshairs at a given X,Y location, which I use for a graphics cursor. The example program for testing it is:
20 PLOTTER IS CRT,”INTERNAL”
30 GRAPHICS INPUT IS KBD,”KBD”
50 READ LOCATOR X,Y,S$
60 SET ECHO X,Y
70 GOTO 50
Line 50 reads the mouse pointer location, and line 60 puts the crosshairs there.
This program works fine in ver 8.3 running in Win XP, but not in Win 98SE. No crosshairs is displayed. I’ve tried it in 2 different machines with the same result.
