Re: What to do about a lack of developers for the compiler?

I never intended it as a backhanded question. I love freeBASIC and I want to see it continue to get bug fixes. I was attempting to get a conversation going about this to see what the community wants to do. This is a very necessary topic and an interesting read so far. If there is a backhand to it, ...

Re: Any list of softwares made in fb?

Hi Tourist: Yes, FBEdit is written in FB. You also forgot to mention that FB is written in FB. I have been following the thread titled "Update???" in the 'games' forum and there is a lot of FB software at Lachie Dazdarian's web site . Unfortunately much of FB's code base is very old and th...

Re: How does FB create a graphics screen

Thankyou both for your answers.
The information that you provided was sufficient so I don't have to delve into the source code.

Re: WinFBE FreeBASIC Editor for Windows

Hi Paul: Version 1.4.2: Quick run works from menu but the tool bar button is not enabled. Did you foget to turn it on or is it something I did? The last time I asked about templates they were not yet implemented. I must have missed the implementation. That works really well. I download CWindows and ...

How does FB create a graphics screen

What does FB use to create a graphics Window? I used -r to create keep the asm file and then -gen c to create a C file to look at what the screenres command does. It only shows me that FB connects with gfxlib to create this window (if I'm understanding it correctly). int32 __stdcall fb_GfxScreenRes(...

Re: Arrays

Since this is the beginners thread there are a couple of things I would like to say: In your example you have defined the array Dim Buf(128) as Ubyte This defines an array of 129 elements, 0 to 128. In your code, your loop skips element at index 0. Freebasic allows you to better define an array stat...

Re: FB debugger : 2.91 32/64 BIT ..... (Aug 20th, 2016)

I definitely hit settings button.
Its no matter though as the message box version works and here are the results:
baseunits=14000A
right=10 bottom=20
scale x y = 2 2

I won't be back at the computer for 24 hours. I hope this helps.

Re: FB debugger : 2.91 32/64 BIT ..... (Aug 20th, 2016)

I am definitely using scaling here on Win 10. I disabled it for fbDebugger as per St. W. but the problem still exists. I will try to shut of scaling completely, if I can find the setting, and report back. I downloaded and compiled that settings version you linked Sarg. It doesn't print anything to t...

Re: FB debugger : 2.91 32/64 BIT ..... (Aug 20th, 2016)

Hi Sarg: I can confirm that my settings menu looks like the one AGS posted. Most of the buttons are sized incorrectly for the text. On the line for setting shortcut keys, the up/down for the key does nothing. I put a 'w' in it and it didn't go forward or backward. There is a button to the right of t...

Re: Arrays and IDs

A simple ordered list might speed up the for loop You can try to split the nodes into a 2 dimension array, using the first digit of the id as the index of the first dimension. Then you redim preserve the second dimension for the node count. Dim Shared As TNode Node(Any, Any) ... Redim Preserve Node(...

Re: WinFBE FreeBASIC Editor for Windows

@FXM
Regarding FBEdit:
You can modify the build option and it seems to work without dropping down to a command prompt.
This image is using the build option Window Console (debug).
