Re: Data Compression

Albert, you have asked the same questions months ago. I and other users, tried to answer you. And now you are showing clearly that trying to explain anything to you was a waste of time, because you are asking the same, identical things. You don't like the answers you got? That's fine, but then don't...

Re: Data Compression

Richard , kept telling me , If you want to compress , you have to look for patterns.. But i told him , in random data there are no patterns. True. Hence, random data cannot be compressed. You admitted it here: https://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=275235#p275235 I agree with you guys.... ...

Re: how to create .3bd files?

MilkShape3D can export to B3D.

There is also a plugin for Blender that allows to export to B3D (just check the version, not all versions of Blender are supported, I think)

Re: Object oriented programming or 3d graphics?

Dodicat, glBegin...glEnd are commands deprecated from almost every version of OpenGL, so it's better not to teach OpenGL in that way

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

I also remind that, for the dos version, the batch file maksymbr.bat has to be launched, and then the main runtime library has to be compiled again before distributing the compiled version

Re: Star Wars "Light Saber"

I wonder if it's possible to create a ring laser crystal , instead of a beam laser crystal. No, because "ring laser crystal" means nothing, it's a term that makes no sense. When the two parallel lasers come together , they might diffuse?? If they are parallel, they cannot come together. I...

This is not possible, because if the base has already the laser emitter. If you put the mirror over the emitter, it would block the laser beam, that would be unable to reach the mirror on the top.

Re: Star Wars "Light Saber"

First of all, there is no such a thing like a telescopic crystal. Also, trapping light inside a crystal would have a serious issue: true, you can use refraction and reflection to make a photon "bounce" around, following a path inside the crystal, but such a path would either be open, or cl...

Re: Number Trick

I'm out of paper.... I've filled a 500 page notebook with manipulation formulas over the last two weeks.. 1000 pages.. Got to buy another 500 page notebook... What are you trying to do? Are you trying to say, like Fermat, that you have a great formula but not enough space to write it? My question i...

Re: Number Trick

Listen, Albert: if you want a formula to square numbers, use this:

Code: Select all

Exp(Log(X)*2)


It works. Now, please, stop posting non-working pieces of code.
