Re: Endless loop.

Dodicat has done some really great pixel cloud 3d demos and has honed the code maximise speed and short but for me mostly unreadable source code. I tried to do a forum search for older examples of pixel cloud 3d by typing Saturn for an example I posted but the search engine turned up nothing! For so...

Re: msgbox

Hi is there any way to do something like that in freebasic for DOS Are you using an old DOS based machine or some DOS emulator on a modern machine? You can roll your own DOS GUI to whatever complexity you and the hardware of the machine are capable of. I remember rolling my own GUI stuff on the old...

Re: Squares

After reading Albert's last posts I can only agree with Richard. I know people with autism (or Asperger syndrome) and schizophrenia and they need understanding and kindness not rejection. I respect Richard's patience. Albert I wouldn't worry too much about the side effects of clozapine, providing it...

Re: GET and PUT ( graphics ) commands slow down my program

I don't know how many others know or guessed what you are trying to do but I can't figure it out to say yes or no to anything you wrote.
I never found the need to use GET when using images.
You mention using PRINT so I wondered if using draw string might be another option.

Re: Attempt at an electron emulator (sort of)

Although I don't know what statements are available for an Acorn Electron as far as FB and Windows I find multikey using arrow keys nicer to use. sub main dim as gfx_buffer ptr display=create_display(800,600) dim as world ptr world=create_test_world() do if multikey(&H48) then move_player(world,...

Re: GET and PUT ( graphics ) commands slow down my program

This is the thing. You're first reading with GET from the screen or from a buffer? The code snippet shows GET as getting it from the screen and then placing it back on the screen. Here is a working version of the code snippet provided. #Include "fbgfx.bi" Using fb dim as integer w,h,depth...

Re: GET and PUT ( graphics ) commands slow down my program

I only program one type of microcontroller in particular and have never worked with the others. My skills are limited to electronics and assembler language because of the applications that require it. But what is this application that requires a PC? Coming back to Freebasic, do you think my method ...

Re: GET and PUT ( graphics ) commands slow down my program

@xlucas, Sure I loved assembler (Z80, 6502, 68000 and so on) and wrote a simple editor/assembler for the c64 but you no longer have direct access to the hardware on a modern computer thus no speed advantage you are just calling high level routines from assembler. Unfortunately PIC32 is simply unable...

Re: GET and PUT ( graphics ) commands slow down my program

On a sidenote, that's very interesting about your programming microcontrollers. I've been interested in them, but I'm not very skilled. I wanted to use a PIC32 to make a computer. It'll be lots of work, but lots of fun :) I used to use assembler all the time. Today you can program microprocessors u...

Re: GET and PUT ( graphics ) commands slow down my program

I'm wondering how they keep the images in video games in proportion regardless of the screen resolution, unless I'm wrong. Modern graphics cards are equipped with a great number of GPUs, spezialized processors for graphic computation. I doubt that there is a way to access those GPUs by FB (correct ...

Re: Forum search has stopped working.

Usually I use google with "FreeBASIC" in the search subject line. Finding the keywords in the original post isn't always easy.

Re: Retro parallax scrolling

@SARG
Not off topic really as it was an issue with the posted code.
In fact I now remember the issue with dx and assembler and used to use xd instead but then later thought it had been fixed.
See you have now fixed it? Anyway I have just changed dx to xd in the first post.
