Smallest paint program evar?! Interestingly, DOSBox fails to capture the mouse in windowed mode here... ;)

ok so its not the picture but a uber simplistic paint tool.
but 16b, holy crab.

i didn't get it to work in a VM so far, i will not give up trying, though ;) this is my first release, please don't downvote me to oblivion :P

also, the download link clearly does not work, but i can't figure out how to change it. can anybody tell me?

please use THIS ONE -->> http://www.file-upload.net/download-8204524/paint.zip.html

Easy to make it 14b: throw away the last int 0x10.

well spotted frag =) let's see what features fit in the resulting two free bytes =) also, thx for the mirror =)

At first I saw it's another 16b and was ok. Then I saw the screenshot and was like? Maybe 32k? Then I realized it's a painting program and still couldn't believe it would fit in 16b. Then I read the code and realized. Wow!

1.) If the mouse capture does not seem to work, try "CTRL + F10". This should command DOSBox to trap the mouse into the window =)

2.) The cursor is invisible so far :/ You can spot it though, by holding (and then after spotting, releasing) a button without moving the mouse =)

I think this is the most you can squeeze out of a 16b.
Totally original concept (A paint program in such a small size? Who would've thought?) and a proper execution (Barring the invisible cursor but well... what can you do in such small filesize).

So far the best 16b I've seen!
rulez added on the 2013-10-22 07:39:25 by TomoAlien TomoAlien
It's 16b, and it's interactive.
Also, nice pic :)

I think this might be the first guaranteed bug-free graphics software I've ever used. I am utterly amazed that this is possible in 16 bytes.

PA!NT 16b in 32b. all right. :D

Well, there is no less than 32b category in pouet. File is still 16b.
added on the 2013-10-22 11:19:22 by Optimus Optimus
14b: Maybe you can make pointer visible with the remaining 2 bytes?

Why did you call int 0x10 twice? Here's your pa!nt in just 14 bytes, source for nasm:
Code:BITS 16 mov al,0x12 mloop: int 0x10 mov ax,0x03 int 0x33 xchg ax,bx mov ah,0x0C jmp mloop

thx for so much up~thumbs! Ferris, you're right of cause (as was frag), i immediately released after hitting the 16b border with colors. let's see how far we can go =) pouet is awesome ♥

rulez added on the 2013-10-22 19:29:57 by Jakim Jakim
I still wonder if it's possible to go any lower. 14 bytes seem to be the limit of anything usable for 16-bit realmode x86 architecture (it's not about DOS really), but... who knows?

There is a status : HellMood on Facebook , you might have to scroll a little.

I'm currently working on further versions, with indepth explainations and videos even =) a little patience on that is required, though ;)

It didn't work for me directly in my old, updated Windows XP Pro. SP3's cmd.exe and DOSbox v0.75. :(

Nice one!
Just in case nobody tried yet:
Yes, it works fine on a real old DOS machine. Just tried on a P233 with MS-DOS 6.22

AntDude: Why the fuck do you thumb down a prod right after finding out that you can't get it to work, without even reading the comments which would tell you how to get it working in DOSBox?
Saga Musix: I did read them. I get nothing on my screen in both cmd.exe and DOSbox.
added on the 2013-11-02 15:16:29 by AntDude AntDude
Worked perfectly. Awesome. =)
rulez added on the 2013-11-02 18:12:53 by imerso imerso
AntDude, there's nothing on the screen by default. You run it in DosBox, press Ctrl+F10 to grab the mouse control, and start painting by pressing, dragging ad releasing different mouse button combos, getting different colors. Is it really so hard to understand?

Shame on you for missing the int 0x10 optimization. Also why are you hard coding a short jump?
Code: jmp short mloop

This still kicks ass though

@ɧคɾɗվ: jmp short is the shortest possible jump (aside from RET).
DEBUG codes jmp as jmp short though...

This piece is a work of art, sir!
