Re: ALSA Library

No word about LINUX in mathwizard44 posts. On LINUX we need not download a package. Just run a package manager... That was part of my original question. I guess I should have specified that I was working in Linux. The project that I am working on already works well in Windows as I was able to use &...

Re: ALSA Library

Thanks for the replies. I downloaded the alsa-lib library from the project website and opened it up. What next? Do I run the install script they have packaged with it to get the library, then use f_2_bi to translate the headers? If so, which headers? I feel I got in over my head on this stuff! I rem...

ALSA Library

For my project I was wanting to use some functions from the ALSA project. I noticed that we don't have includes for this library. Is there a way to just get the dev packages and link to them? How involved is this process? I found, reading the wiki, that I would need to translate the header files int...

Re: Reading joystick data directly

Thanks for the suggestions. I do agree that recommendation 3 is the best one, where the program reads joystick definitions from a file (which, if I get ambitious, could be generated by the program itself by asking, "Press A now", "Press C-Left now", etc.). I guess my concern was ...

Reading joystick data directly

In a project I am using a USB adapter to connect a Nintendo 64 controller to my computer. (I then make it control an Ocarina of Time.) When experimenting with code under Windows, I found that C-Left and C-Right were read by GetJoystick as Axis 3. However, on Linux, the same GetJoystick call on the s...

Re: The new website

I like the redesign of the site and the forum. I can see more stuff, especially code.

Is there a way to get the syntax highlighting for the code back? Thanks.

ocarinatemporis - Ocarina of Time

No, not the whole game, just the ocarina. My brother and I decided to work on a project this year of transforming an N64 controller into the ocarina from Legend of Zelda - Ocarina of Time. The timing was great; this was the 25th anniversary of the Legend of Zelda franchise. But school and work got i...

Re: (Solved) MIDI with mmsystem on Windows - no sound

Thanks... the implementation was Mysoft's. I'm glad you found it useful as well.

Whoops. I answered my own question by looking more critically at Mysoft's program. In my original code, I forgot to initialize the MIDI device. I added the following code to do so: Dim As Integer midiresult ' initialize device midiresult = midiOutOpen(@MidiDevice, MIDI_MAPPER, 0, 0, null) If...

(Solved) MIDI with mmsystem on Windows - no sound

I'm reading up on sending MIDI messages through mmsystem, and I found on this forum a PLAY command implementation by Mysoft. Using his second version (using MIDI) as a model, I wrote this: #include once "windows.bi" #include once "win\mmsystem.bi" Type MidiMessage Field = 1 statu...

A MIDI library for editing MIDI files

I want to create a text-mode MIDI file editor. I would like to use curses to manage the display, but what library should I use to interface with MIDI (i.e., sound out a note currently being inserted, sending MIDI events, etc.)? I don't need it to be able to accept MIDI input from a synth or keyboard...

KristopherWindsor: Very nice. It never did occur to me that the increment was explicit in the for-loop in C. And yes, I did not doubt that this snippet exercise was small enough such that we did not have to worry too much (at all, even!) about having to run a loop 49 times or keeping 100 integers in...

Thanks for all the suggestions!

Well, this has been quite an exercise, and for me as well. After looking at your snippets and some thought (some of which I did while I was trying to answer my Analysis test!) I came up with my own fixed snippet. It doesn't do away with the "accept" variable but it refrains from calling "Exit For" o...
