Re: Forum Moderators

They're cranky old autists I find it pretty unfair to call MrSwiss a cranky old autist. It is generally a very bad sign if members of a forum start using such kind of language; it normally means somebody is short of arguments. Insults should never ever be part of a professional person's vocabulary....

Re: Forum Moderators

FreeBASIC's Forum is not the only forum I'm a member of, and I actually still have a young and active professional life. My perspective is as follows - there has not been a single time where someone outside of here has yelled at me in any form that they do here WITH CAPITAL LETTERS or even ENTITLED ...

Re: Forum Moderators

Capital letters mean you're super serious.

My biggest issue being a mod here would be not laughing over how riled up the autists in the forum get over the absolute most petty stuff.

Re: Gameboy emulator written in FreeBasic

If anyone builds for Windows, having a Windows distribution (with binaries) would be best. In my experience, that's usually how Windows applications are deployed: https://www.gtk.org/download/windows.php

I might give it a go. Will GTK+3 work? Or is this GTK 2, or...?

Re: my best effort

You can say the declarations are purely for use by the compiler all you want, but in practice header files are incredibly useful since *they contain the declarations*. Otherwise, you have to hunt for the implementation and look up its parameters (which might not even be available, especially when li...

Re: "A Love Letter To FreeBASIC" Game Dev Competition (Oct 2018 – Jan 2019), 250 $ 1st prize

I'm really glad that this competition is growing traction! Should I do a special edition "FINAL" issue of QB Express to commemorate it? Would anyone be interested in writing something? Also, I would like to contribute an additional $100 into the winner's pot. (PayPal, Lachie?) I won't hav...

BasicCoder2: I think you overthink things just a bit and maybe let that get in the way of actually doing things. Don't let any inhibitions or doubt stop you. I believe in you. So what if all you code is Tetris? At least you will have made something. At least it will have been your Tetris. Maybe a T...

I guess my hope was you would come up with something Lachie and obviously just exclude yourself from the prizes the same way I am. Also, you won't get to see my WIP. Stop trying to look. Pervert.

Re: Would anyone find a FreeBASIC vs JavaScript side-by-side series useful (+is it allowed here)?

But if I'm mistaken, and that is allowed, I'll be happy to do a very expansive pascal comparison too :-) Personally, I'd vote in favor of that. For two reasons. 1) Pascal is a cool language, although not as popular as JavaScript. I'm sure some people would benefit. It might show us where certain fe...

Re: Would anyone find a FreeBASIC vs JavaScript side-by-side series useful (+is it allowed here)?

Okay, well thank you for sharing your opinion MrSwiss. Worth noting that Lachie's been contributing to the QBASIC/FreeBASIC community since like the early 2000's. He's one of the most respected game devs here and QBASIC has a long history of game development. You might not know this though having ju...

Re: Try JavaScript

IMHO this discussion is a bit pointless, especially when considering that this is a FreeBasic forum, because this topic could be also discussed for so many other modern programming languages with probably similar results. A bit pointless, you say? I'd say that this entire thread is an exercise in p...

I'm just going to reply to people who give actual feedback on the question / contents of the thread. If you think a JavaScript vs FreeBASIC side-by-side series would be useful, let me know. If not, let me know.

Re: Would anyone find a FreeBASIC vs JavaScript side-by-side series useful (+is it allowed here)?

Having a thread be called pointless is a bit frustrating. In my mind it was very clear what I'm asking.

Read the title of the thread. That is all.
