Re: FreeBASIC Community produced game

I was thinking the same thing. And really that's fantastic. It was great to see Lachie organizing the competition, and all the enthusiasm for it, all the new stuff getting made. I have still have interest for this thing, some kind of community produced effort, maybe not in the leadership role. I th...

Re: What is the prefered method to initialize the parent object?

[edit] Added a previous post From the two previous posts and other already known rules as 'golden rules', a 'maximizing rule' could be proposed to always obtain a safe operation whatever the configuration: ⋅ If the user needs to explicitly defines any form of constructor procedure (includ...

Re: fbGFX: BUG in Paint statement

Are you saying that the bug is rather for the Circle keyword (and Line...,B...), but not Paint? :-) Hi all, I use a lot the ALPHA flag, and find it very good. But when you are in this configuration of screen, I think that there is no better strategy than using multiple buffers and blend them with P...

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

Hi Lachie, and all, I think I wont make it. I did as best as it was possible. Main adverse conditions I met were a job I took in january where I was given a very bad office configuration. For instance, 2 different screens, 2 different sizes, and even 2 different frequencies (80 and 60 hz), and the d...

... Or perhaps I'm just missing your intent there ;) Hi Paul, Thanks for the snippet, I will study it carefully. However, about my intent, it's not starighforward. You see, I try to find color themes as part of the design, and in general I just can't solve this in a staightforward way. I could try ...

Then it compiles and runs perfectly fine with the latest fbc 64-bit ;) A warning is thrown nonetheless A big thank Paul, I'm tired so much that I wasn't able to figure out this simple change, IF / IFDEF is a classic little issue :) For the constant overflow, that's more a issue for fbc than for me,...

Hi all, I'm still not sure if this will be a game, but I try at least to achieve an interface to a game. Here the menu page. I have a problem when compiling to 64bits so I'll post the code later today in order for anyone to test it if wanted. https://i.postimg.cc/NMkgMnvf/test.png Edit: uploaded th...

I haven't written 1 line of code since january 16th, the date of my car accident... don't know why, maybe some version of writers block.... needless to say, don't count on anything from me...

Hello everyone. Only one week left to go. What can I hope for? Hi dear Lachie. Thanks for your effort. With no such insistance and interest I probably would have aborted this. About your question, from my side you can hope for a very last minute release of something that maybe will be playable, may...
