Re: FreeBASIC IDE with enhanced debugging and project features

Hi, looks to be a very nice IDE! I downloaded, used the File->Download FreeBasic option, and tried running the examples/hello.bas as such and everything works. However, as soon as I debug (32 or 64 bit), the debugger crashes with the message fb_debug_64.exe has stopped working . I'm running win10. #...

Re: Does "Randomize Timer" have a speed limit?

You aren't using "randomize timer" as it was indented to be used. "Randomize timer" is meant to be called once, to set the *seed* for the pseudo random number generator. Then, you repeatedly call rnd() as needed every time you want the next random number. If you were to set the s...

Re: circuit_chung free 3D road car racing game

Looks nice! Have you made the physics/movement FPS independent? If not, it might be a rewarding challenge for you. Makes anything (especially 3d) a much nicer experience.

That is one big rainbow drop.

Say, I tried downloading from http://fbcraft.fwsnet.net/fbcraft-test.rar but it gave me a 404. Do you have a link that is working? I'd like to try running your game on my system. Thanks!

Reading through the evolution of how minecraft stored its levels is rather interesting.

i like block world =) or block engine.. Yes, block world is good =). As far as saving voxel data.. how about put # , , blockdata ? That works for smaller data sets, but x*y*z adds up quickly. For a big world you will likely want to store it compressed (simple run length encoding perhaps) since a la...

@darkhog, I would not mention "voxel" unless you mean voxel rendering (think Delta Force games). It will most likely confuse people. I think "minecraft like" is a better way to indicate the type of engine you want to duplicate. In any case, it is probably most rewarding to code the entire thing your...

I was just letting you know, in case you or others try to use it with xml tools and wonder why it doesn't work. :-)

You should call it axml, for AgaXml :-)

FYi, your xml example is not valid xml. All attributes need to be quoted, either with matching single quotes ( ' ) or double quotes ( " ).


good: <element attribute="value" />
bad: <element attribute = value />

I think it depends on the category. If there are lot of things to Set, it might makes sense to: SetNode SetElement SetThat ... I think if there are a lot of functions related to Node, then NodeSet NodeDoSomething NodeDoThat groups them all nicely. It is helpful in an IDE with auto-complete as well w...

Hello Teslacoil, I have not played Starflight but I am interested. Are you aware of any freely available copies/clones on the net? EDIT: I just found a copy and explanation here: http://www.starflt.com/ I explored the wiki page and came across ASIMOV1. Very intriguing. I see it is built on top of wi...
