Sea Battle 2.1 Released

If anyone remembers me or my games, its been almost two years since I've released anything... I have released an update to my Sea Battle 2 game. 2.1 has a few bugs fixes, a few timing issues tweaked, but the main update is touchscreen support. Thanks to Counting_Pine, I've replaced my input routines...

Re: Detect a Single Tap on a Touchpad/Touchscreen

Awesome! Saved my ass again CP! Yep, i'll have to completely redo my code for mouse dectection, but I should be able to use the example code in the manual to do this single tap. I've tested the same code on my tablet, and I can detect a mouse tap with the screenevent. It shows up as a left click dow...

Detect a Single Tap on a Touchpad/Touchscreen

Does anyone have any code that can detect a single tap on a Touchpad or Touchscreen? The built in getmouse command in Free Basic cannot detect a single tap. To get a left click (IE Button = 1) one must double tap, or tap and slightly slide your finger. I'd like to be able to support a single tap in ...

Windows 8 tiouchscreen

Hi Everyone, it's been a while. I'm currently tinkering with my Sea Battle 2 game and making Windows 8 Touchscreen playable. I've done a bit a search on forum, I haven't found too much discussion on touchscreens and FB. Although Sea Battle works fine with a mouse, I find that my Dell touchpad is int...

I only disliked the slow sonar refresh. I think the game could work with a much faster refresh of the sonar screen. Especially because it happens even if I abort a command and not even execute it. I agree with Lachie here, for once. :p Seriously though... it was actually pretty fun. Nice job. I'm r...

I've got an old BASIC book that has an old Star Trek variant named Star Warp. It's just like the old graphical ST games but is entirely text based. I did type it all into QB at some point and it ran fine even though it's more in the GW style. I don't really want to type it all in again right now bu...

Thanks for the comments on Sea Battle. Yeah I was still not 100% happy with the sonar speed. It has to do with sleep 1. Sleep 1 is too long. But that is as low as you can go with the sleep command. I made my own sleep command recently for my Star Trek 3 game. Essentially sleep .5 or sleep .25 would ...

The first one, is not it for sure. But I'll have to take a peek at to see. I have an idea of doing landing party missison. This might be helpful. The second one is variation of the Star Trek code I used as the core of my Star Trek game. Essentially, it's the same game, with a graphic front end. But ...

Wow, I have forgotten Star Warp. I remember that game! I had, and may still have that book somewhere. It's been a while since I saw it. I have another TRS-80 book, white cover, with the oddest Star Trek game in it. I might throw that out there more as a joke! My Star Trek game is really a combinatio...

Beta 4a will be released this Sunday. Nothing new in it except a lot of new sounds for creatures. I should have all but 10-20 creatures left to do when I release Beta 4a. I have not had any bugs reported, nor have I had time to play it to find any of my own.

So this is just a sound update.
