Re: Programming Newbie Compiler Question

Why would one want to compile two .bas files in one executable? The second could be #included in the first. Mostly it contains functions, subs and such. Additionally .o, .rc or other files could be linked in. :-) There is no rule regarding the use of .bi vs .bas but it is general practice to declar...

Re: Programming Newbie Compiler Question

That is the expected order.
Are you familiar with subs and functions?
Generally, your non main .bas files would include all of your functions and subs.
They are then compiled first so that your main .bas file will be able to use them.

Re: Problem with notifications.

Yes, I've been having trouble as well. I used to get email notifications but they stopped around the time the forum was updated to the new look.

Re: Are VBOs and Instancing not available in freebasic's OpenGL?

Thanks! I added all the bindproc stuff in and now I can use those functions. I'm having some trouble using a VBO though. This is my setup code. glGenBuffers(1, @vboId) glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, vboId) glBufferData(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, sizeof(vertex), verticess, GL_STATIC_DRAW) glVertexPointer(3, GL_...

Why do none of these work in my freebasic OpenGL programs.

Re: drawing 3D triangles by halves to create a sentinel/sentry game

This little game is an example of how to draw 3D triangles in a simpler manner : by splitting them in two halves, by the line that passes through the medium point. This is simpler because each half can be drawn by a very simple for y = up to down : draw horiz line : next y Nice work! I've never pla...

Re: Eric: The Mysterious Stranger - RTS game(WIP)

Perhaps one day tools such as Blender will evolve to the stage of having a menagerie of plants, animals and other objects along with an algorithm to generate random humans which we can take to a virtual clothes shop and dress them up just by selecting the clothes desired. Then be able to apply kine...

Re: Eric: The Mysterious Stranger - RTS game(WIP)

At the moment the Viking characters need improving for they look more like monsters from the deep lagoon than people :) It is a matter of keeping to an art style which is probably easiest when only one artist is involved or at least one artist sets the style. A reduced palette of colors may also gi...

Re: Eric: The Mysterious Stranger - RTS game(WIP)

@Boromir Still working on your project. Are you able to provide a little utube action demo of the game so far? Yes, I do hope to create a video soon if I have time. One thing that I think makes a game easy on the eyes is sharp rather than blurry edges providing they don't become too cartoon like. A...
