Re: No OOP?

Can I create, compile and execute an offline program with only Free Basic (and an appropriate IDE), but without any OOP or other external programming code? My program is very simple, but does input a text file that has uniform records, one per line. Hi kip, yes you can use FB this way. You can then...

Re: Are you happy with your office's lightings?

What kind of computer work do you do mostly? Maybe you can do some design work on a (non-electronic) whiteboard in between computer work. We have a whiteboard in every office. And I always make drawings on whiteboards whenever I entry someone's office. I cannot think clearly without drawing stuff. ...

Re: Are you happy with your office's lighting?

For monitors, yes. For TVs it is called Phillips Ambilight. See e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bias_lighting Thanks. That's a very nice stuff, I didn't know about that. What is still surprising to me is that professional designers may work facing a wall. It is recommended by medicine to have so...

Re: Are you happy with your office's lightings?

I think that if the external light changes color and intensity, then you definitely want to adjust your computer screen with it as well. Hi badidea, what actually happens to me is that I think I know how to best tune the color rendering of the screen, provided it is not a too crap model, and above ...

Re: Are you happy with your office's lighting?

Did you or anyone experienced dynamic lighting features? You know those stuffs that imitate natural light in intensity and changes during the day. Ubuntu 18 and windows 10 both come with a dynamic blue light filter and I have a very hard time using a computer or device without one now. They make a ...

Re: Are you happy with your office's lighting?

Then it is nearly impossible to see anything on the computer screen when sunny, and a move somewhere else to continue. Recently I taped some big pieces of paper to the windows. The window cleaners will probably complain soon :-) Hi badidea, thanks for those meaningful comments. About what you say o...

Are you happy with your office's lightings?

Hello everyone, I wished to share around the topic of lights at office. It's not absolutly straightforward that this will be related to programming, and yet, I found out those days that it is. Simply, a good lightning helps to keep at screen and do good work happilly, while bad lightning is just eye...

Re: "A Love Letter To FreeBASIC" Game Dev Competition (Feb 2019 –Mar 2019) - Round 2

That isn't practical. When does it end then? When the last finishes? I mean, doesn't make sense. Let's make it end the 22 then. There is some irony that many of us seem to have met unexpected sources of difficulties just the moment where as BC2 noticed something was happening. Some have had car acc...

One week to go. Who plans to submit a finished entry? Looking rather slim so far. Only 2. 2>0, nevertheless... I don't plan anything. During the week I cant make any coding those days. Monday 22th in France at least there is a no work day. If this is also true for the others, what about pushing the...

Re: SXML (Simple XML parser)

You're coding a viewer for what? Just the XML structure, or some other data? Hi Paul, I tried this in order to be able to separate the xml decoration from the data content. If you read a xml file, even with syntax highlighting it's uggly. With some effort we can still keep the xml strucure visible ...

Re: SXML (Simple XML parser)

Hi all, hi Paul, I find your work very great. I may someday learn from it to go somewhere with some small project of mine where I try to parse some xml in order to make a viewer. Here it is, and as you see it's not good. This way however, by doing myself, I feel more apt to detect superior effort wh...

Re: Rotating Earth build 2019-04-08

Neither the code I posted nor the tweaked version from dodicat uses GDI+. I only mentioned that my previous version was based on GDI+. Hi UEZ, thanks, my fear was to use a system specific tool for a game I would I would rather keep portable. Otherwise, I like learning gdi+, it's very useful on wind...

Very nice.
If you don't mind, I have tweaked a bit to give shorter days (and nights)

Hi all,

@dodicat, your snippet doesn't use GDI+ it seems? If so, I'll try to learn from it because I was looking for a planet for my game !

Re: "A Love Letter To FreeBASIC" Game Dev Competition (Feb 2019 –Mar 2019) - Round 2

I'm extending the deadline one last time until 22nd of April. I guess you rarely met so much late on project delivery! Thanks for the patience ;) Ah, I see. You may want to try the HCY color space . It's really cool, intuitive (it orders colors by perceived luminosity ) and especially suitable for ...
