Re: Alvarian Tales

Are you using any external libraries? If you are coding this in pure FB with no external libraries or inline asm, then you should be able to compile with 64bit FB without having to make any major changes

Re: issue with tile map refresh speed

Re: Need help from any spanish keyboard user in FbEdit.

You can also use CTRL+F9 to remove the comment markers

Basically, what I'm looking to do is take a plain text file that has a list of tags for an image and g...
