Re: coding games for FM-Towns Marty

what i don’t know is if this source code from Mess emulator might help as documentation for how we access display and sound on Marty from FreeBasic: http://mamedev.org/source/src/mess/driv ... wns.c.html

Re: coding games for FM-Towns Marty

i think that they are actually semi-compatible, so in theory, what i make for dos would certainly work on Marty (perhaps with some small changes) - what i think i don’t know (i didn't try anything yet) is how to access the i/o ports of Marty for those extra screen modes (with scroll and physical spr...

coding games for FM-Towns Marty

recently i got curious about coding games for cd-based old game consoles like FM-Towns Marty - and since this game console is a i386, i guess we can make something using Freebasic? if so, how can we make use effectively of its unique graphics and sound capabilities on FreeBasic? and how can we creat...

Re: invaders from space

That was a newbie question! :) - I were attempting to do something on FreeBasic since years ago, but only now i can start to feel minimally able to humbly code something on it. I imagine there are some tips to make most or some of the sources focused on Linux/w32 being compilable on DOS somehow, but...

Re: new DOS game made on FreeBasic

Recompiled this for Windows. It worked like a charm! :) Anyway, I like the retro look of the screen, but I'm not sure if the gameplay is rewarding at all. Seems very dated to me. It's only a test of patience, really, and at one point barrels stopped to appear and there was no way I could win. yes, ...

Another question: are people, here or around, coding stuff on FreeBasic/DOS for projects like Fuzoma? http://superkeen.com/peacecorpsweblog/learning-software/comment-page-1/ - maybe this kind of project is a really interesting for helping the popularity and the increase of source available of FreeBa...

Re: undocumented vga modes like 400x600 256c

btw, here is a list of resolutions supported by Fractint 20.04.9 - sorry being as a picture only - there are some working very fine on DosBox (and i bet that they work fine on real "old" machines as well), and i really wished to have them available from FreeBasic/DOS (400x600, 320x400, etc...

Re: screen13 palette: is there a bug, or i'm struggling on i

still with problems... maybe what is causing this is the compiled code is too fast for dosbox emulation? - this is weird because i tried even adding 'screensync' command in the code, into that loop... http://desmond.imageshack.us/Himg809/scaled.php?server=809&filename=5scr13fbdbstillwithprob.png...

Re: snippets using sprites on cga - help needed

would be great if there is some kind of code forcing to 8088! :) would be really awesome! :) No way: FreeBasic emits 32 bit assembly, so a 32 bit processor is required (and an 8088 is a 16 bit processor) but i think there is a catch... - that's why i pointed this situation - someone (or some kind o...

maybe we found a bug on the Freebasic (or at least the DOS version of it)
