Thanks for the reply. Have been using FBEdit on W2K.

I think (hope) Slackware has all the tools I need and only have to download FreeBasic. If you try Slackware get a copy of Parted Magic to setup the HD. Want to convert my source to run on Linux.Testing in progess.

Installed FB using the .run file and built and execute hello world.

./FreeBASIC-0.23.0-linux.run install

The FreeBASIC-0.23.0-linux.tar.gz, using the tar cmd, quit during the install because of errors.

Thank you for the .run file.

Still looking for an editor.

I use SDL with FB. I use SDL to setup the graphic space so that I can use OpenGL commands. Looking forward to a new release of SDL. Thanks for the heads up.

I started Basic programming on an S100 system with Processor Technology OS with a cassette tape for mass storage and MS 5K Basic. 1978? Books were a good source of code. Today, most of the early code can be found online. Today you can buy "QBasic byExample" used on Amazon for 0.84+ cent plus shippin...

Hello chung,

Irr_chung seems to work well on my Win2K SP4 system with an ATI 9600 video card. I moved for quite a long time, 5 to 10 minutes and to the edges of the world with out a crash. I did have to add msvcr71.dll to the folder.

Good work !!!

I had a problem with fbsound a while back, I fixed it by adding a sleep command. I add the sleep as you suggested. It did not work. I finally modified dprint to print directly to the console and found the error was occuring in plug-mm.bas. After every subroutine that had a dprint(mm:xxxx~) destructo...

If you do a Google search on Sonic The Hedgehog there are free games you can play online and also free game you can download. I seem to remember many, many free Tetris clones. IP , DRM, copyright and patent laws need to be updated to reflect the current state of technology.

You might want to checkout CRRCsim. I think it is open source.

I think you need to be in the IrrlichtWrapper directory to compile the examples. It also might be helpful to use an IDE like FBEdit.

On a command line this works for me.

F:\IrrlichtWrapper>E:\FreeBASIC_v0.18.5b\fbc 01_example_helloworld.bas

IDE is much easier !

hope this helps

Try looking at gluLookAt. Also try looking at 2d math for point rotation/translation.

The world is relative. Their is no difference in moving the observer in a stationary world or moving the world and keeping the observer stationary.
