Re: Bliss - Stunts Track Editor

Thank you Mr Swiss.
I did not realize that Line Input could get its end of line from the line feed character only.

Re: Bliss - Stunts Track Editor

Looks interesting. The source code editor you used places the LF and the end of a line but not the CR, so FBEdit puts everything on one line. I am sure there are many cures for this but here is one (obviously, replace the filename paths as necessary): Const As String INFILE = "C:\Freebasic Stuf...

Latest ransomware attacks

I have been having a hard time finding any practical info regarding the growing concern of this most recent large scale ransomware attack. I am talking about the one that took down the UK hospitals systems. From what I have read this is a worm and there will be a newer stronger version released soon...

Re: BREAKOUT

@BasicCoder: There seems to be errors in mmsystem.bi. (ex DWORD undefined). Without any investigation, I suspect it needs windows.bi loaded first. @thesanman: There is no need to draw to the screen and use get to build the image. You can draw directly to the image. I don't know if it makes much diff...

Re: BREAKOUT

I noticed that you can sort of grab the ball if you move the paddle at the right time. You say this is demo code, are you interested in some of code corrections? I'll post a few that I've found in case anyone else is reading the code. Some of these look like they are part of a more expanded version ...

Re: BREAKOUT

100 lines only because statements are combined. You could place it all on a single line and claim its only 1 line. I played this game and like some others it was super fast on my computer. I changed the sleep 1 to sleep 20 (on line 98) and it worked. The game plays quite well. I got to level 1.9 whe...

Re: try at directx 9 3d

I tried the code and I got about ten lines of errors, all the D3D constants and what not, and first error was something about -lang.... The errors are coming from a difference in the number of arguments in the translated header functions such as createdevice. The FB functions require the pointer va...

Re: Can functions return arrays?

There is also the option of wrapping the array in a type and returning that: Type MyArray As Integer n(1 To 10) End Type Function test() As MyArray Dim As MyArray t For x As Integer = 1 To 10 t.n(x) = x Next Return t End Function Dim p As MyArray p = test() For x As Integer = 1 To 10 Print p.n(x) Ne...

Re: Compile Error driving me nuts

The static sub is not given an instance of the class, unlike a non-static sub. So there is no 'this'. You pust pass the static sub an instance. Declaration changed: Declare Static Sub LogCallBack(ByVal myInstance As cCTSQLite, ByVal pAny as Any Ptr, _ ByVal iError as Long, _ ByVal pMessage as ZStrin...

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

In a two or more player strategy game you take turns in making a move Except that the RT in RTS stands for Real Time. In Command and Conquer: Red Alert the agents carried on their affairs and you as the player would use the mouse to select groups or individual agents and modify their behavior. I on...

Have never zipped anything up before and have no where to put anything apart from this forum for access anyway. Zipping is a piece of cake. You simply select the files you want to add to the zip file and give it a file name. As for storing the file; GIT is my suggestion. Reading through this thread...

Re: Grid??

Maybe there is more to this but all graphics screens (the ones that work with pset) use the same formula. The top left is (0,0) and they increase horizontally 1 pixel until you get to screen width - 1, and vertically 1 pixel until you get to screen height - 1. So an 800 x 600 screen top left (0,0) a...
