Re: Does Anyone have a clue as to why this doesn't work?

It's quite simple:

Code: Select all

Dim As Integer ff

ff = FreeFile

Open "C:\textfile.txt" For Output As ff
Print #ff, "This is a test"
Close ff

Have a look at the reference for further informations.

Re: Play videos on the console (Windows)

I apologise, it was not caused by your program, Windows automatically changes the view if searching for media files ("It's not a bug, it's a feature"). Thank you for that hint.

Re: Play videos on the console (Windows)

Correction: I used a corrupted .avi file for testing. Playing .avi files now works.

I'm not really sure, but maybe the program changed the "view" options of the searching function (F3) on my machine from "details" to "thumbnail".

Re: Play videos on the console (Windows)

Here (WinXP 32) only .mp3 works. No controls (pause, resume...) while playing.

Re: Preliminary Update to FBeginner EBook

Although I couldn't put more than a cursory glance on it, I must say you did an excellent job, and I agree with D.J.Peters that your EBook should become part of the FB download or at least been admitted into the "Documentation" download folder.

Re: GET and PUT ( graphics ) commands slow down my program

If the image is composed of multiple parts it's maybe better to do it invisible in the background. So with ScreenSet and GET? Seems we are a bit asynchronous. *grin* With ScreenSet, but without GET. Have a look at the snippet I posted. Set up the image you want to show the way you did before, but w...

Re: GET and PUT ( graphics ) commands slow down my program

With "ScreenSet 1.0", I thought I was writing first on a image instead of the screen. Can you explain how? In principle, you are right. But the image you write to has the size of the screen, not of the image you want to show, and that's your problem here. You better write to an image that...

Re: GET and PUT ( graphics ) commands slow down my program

No reason to apologise, I edited it several times. *smile*

Anyway, you can prepare the pictue you want to show by first writing it to an image instead of the screen, then Put this image to the center of the screen and make it visible with ScreenCopy.

Re: GET and PUT ( graphics ) commands slow down my program

As far as I understood, you have developed a device that produces images with a size of 1024 x 768 pixels at a color depth of 16 bits. These images are submitted via USB, and you want to display them on your PC monitor in a centered window. You already managed to read the image data from the device ...

Re: GET and PUT ( graphics ) commands slow down my program

I'm wondering how they keep the images in video games in proportion regardless of the screen resolution, unless I'm wrong. Modern grapics cards are equipped with a great number of GPUs, spezialized processors for graphic computation. I doubt that there is a way to access those GPUs by FB (correct m...

Re: GET and PUT ( graphics ) commands slow down my program

By switching to fullscreen mode, is it possible to ensure that the image is not stretched? This is a beginner's question, but I wonder what the usual methods are. The simplest way to prevent an optical distortion is to add some vertical respectively horizontal stripes so the size of the picture mat...
