Re: fbc-ng

FreeBASIC Compiler next generation is a project that will add sound and other game dev functions to FreeBASIC. Have you taken a look at what we have done with the Extended Library project? We don't have a sound module yet, but there is a ton of graphical and other functions/classes that would be us...

Re: Open "filename" for output as #1

try changing your open call from open file for output as #whatever to open file for binary as #whatever Based on how the runtime library opens files this should work as it does in other languages. Here's a StackOverflow that explains the issue and another solution that uses the winapi although it's ...

Re: Open "filename" for output as #1

Seriously though, your config file doesn't need to be made hidden, just put it in a standard location like APPDATA. Normal users will never find it there. If there is sensitive data stored in the config file then you should encrypt it either using the winapi functions or a trusted 3rd party library....

Re: Using TCP/IP - DOS networking with NDIS drivers

I found this with a quick google: https://code.google.com/p/mtcp/ but it looks to be written for C++

*edit*
I translated this header: http://jafile.com/uploads/sir_mud/dos_tcp.bi awhile back but can't recall what the corresponding library was.

Re: Open "filename" for output as #1

The application has a configuration file, that sits on C:\somefile.ini with attribute as +H, so the user will not mess up with the configuration. The root directory is a protected directory and you would need admin permissions to write there. I would suggest storing your configuration files in %APP...

Re: Best way to convert a image to a rle bmp?

The display of a rle bitmap would be that same as any other image format because it is only stored on disk encoded for compression. Displaying is a memory copy and relatively fast. Unless you are targeting extremely old machines i would use PNGs as they are going to be smaller in nearly all cases.

Re: Problem Create Dll Library

Can you post a backtrace from gdb? The freebasic code would be helpful as well, if you're able to release it (minimal working example is ok). ⋅ Compile your program and dll with the -g flag added ⋅ Run your program with gdb: > path/to/freebasic_dir/bin/win32/gdb.exe yourprogramna...

Re: Problem Create Dll Library

In the context of the code given in the first post, "name" is an identifier for a local variable and can be called anything. You would only need to #undef name if you were going to provide an alternate function or sub called "name". The parameter to On_Send_Dll_ID_Name is also li...
