Re: Multikey key release

@badidea: by all means, use it if you want. I learned that technique from rel (relsoft). I think he used it in Pyromax Dax. Adding a customizable 'autofire' function should be straightforward ;D Indeed, it is used pretty much like the raw 'multiKey()' call, it only performs some extra work behind th...

Re: Multikey key release

...It is pretty simple stuff and I would be surprised if it hasn't already been a tip (I didn't look, but I will now). I will probably monkey with this a bit more and post if I add anything that I like. Yes, there are several implementations floating around here, but yours is nice and always adds =...

(I vote for bug)

Indeed it is. In my version of fbc 1.06 (not the latest) the code compiles without a single problem (no constness warning, no nothing). So, perhaps something was inadvertently broken last build?

Thanks for taking the trouble for testing it, well spotted.

Re: my best effort

theory vs. practice. are they frozen or are they moving? (dont say yes :P) It's not a question of 'theory vs practice', it's more like 'thinking on their own vs spoon feeding': theory without practice is useless, and practice without theory is cargo culting. The key is to find a balance, as always =D

Re: my best effort

@Everybody: please refrain from posting an implementation of the excercise proposed here , at least until they publish an attempt (working or not, doesn't matter). Remember that they are new to programming , not just FreeBasic. So, it may take some time for them to pick the basics up. That's why I d...

Re: my best effort

I just tried your pong game on my linux laptop. I seems to work, but the ball goes as fast as a rocket. Also starts with a very nervous flashing "Get Ready". Changing line 1045 to sleep( 15, 1 ) makes it playable here. Precisely. There's nothing in the way of timing implemented. This is o...

Re: my best effort

@paul doe, About your "FreeBasic Excercises: 1 - Procedures and Arrays" post at FbCadCam Forum: Maybe also specify the dimension of the arrays (I suppose the same for both equal to 1) and their datatype. Indeed, one dimensional arrays. The data type is immaterial but I suppose that they'l...

Re: my best effort

I am hopelessly optimistic. My glass is always half-full. I never give up. All things are possible. It's amazing how you'd pulled all this off in less than a month. It sure is a good thing to see how this project has 'energized' you ;) I have informed them that they need to engage with you guys. Th...

Nice! I also like the low-poly look, and your idea screamed 'platform game' ;)

Re: my best effort

paul Yes it is beyond them for now but not too much for them because I'm giving them a year to get it figured out. Oh, don't worry, it will be far less, I assure you =D I designed the code to gradually introduce more advanced concepts to them, once they have grasped everything at that level. Right ...

Re: my best effort

About the scope of a variable, there are bugs to access different variables with duplicate names. These bugs, I think, are not close to being solved: #645 Access to global duplicated symbol is captured by local symbol Mmm, that's good to know, thanks. I'll update the post there to link to this bug ...
