Re: "A Love Letter To FreeBASIC" Game Dev Competition (Oct 2018 – Feb 2019), 1000 $ 1st prize

gothon, very interesting- I have stayed away from the openGL/3D methods of displaying voxel sprites and terrains - which limits me quite a bit. I have been able to raycast the sprites in realtime, but for dynamic terrain, I have been forced to pre-cast the terrain 'cells' (32x32x32) into 2d images w...

whooooaaa... Gothon! Your thought mirror mine almost exactly..... How are you rrendering the voxels... through raycast? I will need to study your code and see how aligned our thought process is - VERY COOL! and great job so far!

Will each 'cell' be destructable? down to your voxel level?

Some things may change in the final version, most likely level design, difficulty and some graphics.

Re: Shaped Window with mouse area problem

the lag does not make sense to me - where is it coming from? I can think of a crude work-around:

when the mouse button is pressed, make an image of the window including the mouse cursor and then hide the cursor and move that image around until button is released.... i dont like it, but it would work

Re: Having trouble with tilesheets

Forgotten,
Show some of your code - your map display routine in particular... it is very easy to change from whatever you currently have to a tile-based graphical map.

Just think of your current ascii display as each character being a graphic.... which is what they really are anyways.

I completely agree - it looks like my car accident has decimated any hope of putting together anything recognizable as a game in time... I hope you are recovering well dude! i am the luckiest man alive... doing well, walking, talking.... was 1 mm from actual death... scary https://i.postimg.cc/FF2W...

I started with the game shortly before the the completion start, although nearly a complete rewrite now. I would have ne...
