Re: Pentacles

@BasicCoder2 Was your generator tool used to draw an outline of the FreeBasic icon horse? No. That was done using an automatic routine that traces around a blob (area of same color). I would like to see the code or an explanation of how the algorithm incremented to the next pixel, especially tracin...

Re: Pentacles

@BasicCoder2 very nice drawing :-) could you post your latest tracer code ? It was traced from a photo and the colors were picked from the photo using the pick color tool of the tracer program. https://i.postimg.cc/mkdBXqJr/bird.png There is no "latest" code as I did a few versions. I wil...

Re: Pentacles

I had never seen the Draw command - cute! "The DRAW statement combines most of the capabilities of the other graphics statements into an object definition language called Graphics Macro Language (GML). A GML command is a single character within a string, optionally followed by one or more argu...

Re: Free basic

https://nr100.home.xs4all.nl/badidea/tank_game_tut/tutorial_05.html Lol, I should continue with that game some day. But not really a freebasic starting point I think. So your tutorial is over 10 years old! The important part of the tutorial for a beginner who is using Windows and decides to use the...

Re: Free basic

Have you used any other languages? If not then you need to start at the very beginning to learn the programming concepts common to all computer languages. I use the FBIDE with Windows and Geany with my Raspberry Pi (Linux). https://sourceforge.net/projects/fbide/ You might run your eyes over some of...

Although I read that as being meant in a nice way keep in mind it usually means someone who displays intelligence in an annoying way.

Re: Problem with Fog-of-War

Basiccoder2 - you have done this stuff in the past.[code] Indeed I have however iTomi's question was in the context of object orientated programming which I haven't actually used in any experimental tile game engines where objects are created and deleted. iTomi also says he has given up on tiles an...

Re: Problem with Fog-of-War

Maybe you are just over complicating things? I cannot actually visualize what it is you are trying to do. I didn't know what "fog of war" meant but after a google it appears it means only showing a fixed area around a player?

No one cares so go for it :)
I would change the subject title however otherwise an interested party might not click it.

Python advantage

I've found something about Python's Command() equivalent here . It's ridiculously complicated. If you think that FreeBasic is slow and wasting memory, then Python definitely not your cup of tea :-) Python may be slow but its libraries, which I think are written in c++, are not. For example I am int...

While you last which may be decades to come :)
python better?...

For some things and some people.
As far as I know Python depends on other people to write libraries (in c++?) to be useful.
Real programmers use c++, Assembler or FreeBASIC :)

No one changed the subject title or created a new thread along with the change in the subject? My assumption is that most FreeBASIC users are old (50+) and BASIC was a first language on the old machines. As they stop programming with FreeBASIC it will fade away as it doesn't provide for the needs of...

Re: immutable thread titles?
