Re: Are you happy with your office's lighting?

Did you or anyone experienced dynamic lighting features? You know those stuffs that imitate natural light in intensity and changes during the day. Ubuntu 18 and windows 10 both come with a dynamic blue light filter and I have a very hard time using a computer or device without one now. They make a ...

Maybe a (youtube) game play tutorial would help.

That sounds like a good idea. If I can find the time I'll try to make and upload one.

Re: "Basic Warfare" FreeBasic Multiplayer RTS Game

tip: the unit you control does not (seem to) fire I discovered that with a "Patrol" unit you can fire with the "Left shift" button. The whole interface via keyboard is complicated, a mouse base interface would be better I think. The number of key you have to press to create a &q...

Re: "Basic Warfare" FreeBasic Multiplayer RTS Game

I tried it again, using Windows this time. But I still don't understand how to create e.g. a scavenger. To build units you can press "1" to enter the buildings menu. Then press "=" to filp tabs until you get to one named "Compilers". Then press the corresponding number...

Re: "Basic Warfare" FreeBasic Multiplayer RTS Game

Ah yes, I just got a bad case of the Sunday stupids :-) Now the game loads and runs, but I can't seem to get anything to working. Klicking any network related buttons ends the program. When compiling, I get the following warnings: C:\...\FreeBASIC-1.05.0-win64\FreeBASIC-1.05.0-win64\fbc -s console ...

It's a dynamic library so they don't need to be in your compiler lib folder. They just need to be in the same directory as the executable.

Re: "Basic Warfare" FreeBasic Multiplayer RTS Game

I feel a bit stupid for saying this, but all I get when trying to compile the code is this: error: lib fbsound-64 not loaded ! I checked the folders, and everything the program needs seems to be there. If you are compiling from source you will need to copy the runtimes from the runtimes folder to m...

Re: "Basic Warfare" FreeBasic Multiplayer RTS Game

I managed to start a game, fly around, place 2 watch towers, but then I did not understand how to continue / what to do. Anything specific that was confusing? Here is the gameplay guide https://www.indiedb.com/games/basic-warfare/news/basic-warfare-gameplay-guide It doesn't document everything but ...

dafhi wrote:unit list idea. most-used at front

possible formula

I think that would be nice. The interface is definitely still somewhat awkward to use at times.
But what you can do is group units into sets selectable via the F1,F2,F3, etc...

Thank you! Sorry about the load time. It's how long fbsound takes to load the music files.

Sorry guys for the delay with listing the final entries. I have problem running Zamaster's The Secret Garden, and I'm still not sure how to go about it.

Developing this project has been the funniest thing i did with Freebasic. Thank you. Agreed, I've had a lot of fun as well. Your entry looks great, I haven't played it much yet because I was busy with my entry but now I'm hoping to finish it. ;) It reminds me a lot of Commander Keen. @Lachie Here i...

Rather clunky, but that actually worked! Thanks. I'll get started on the game guide and try to document the known bugs or quirky features. The game is pretty hard to learn if you're not an avid RTS player but I believe you'll figure it out and enjoy it. I don't want the learning curve to be too ste...

A server down shouldn't crash the game. Also, clicking localhost keeps crashing my game EVERY time. Localhost still needs a server. Run the game twice. Start one as a server and then connect to localhost with the other one. This is my first network game so some network things aren't perfectly smoot...
