Re: fb-rc4 - Small & Simple RC4 implementation

Looks promising.

Discarding the first 512+ bytes generated from the keystream generator in rc4.bas would make the implementation stronger.

Re: 6502 emulator in FB

@Joshy Yes, the brain I was given falls far short of yours (I've seen lots of your code, and respect it). I know almost nothing about the Commodore 64, except the 'general view' that BASIC on it was bad enough that assembler was often preferred - hence, I guess why you might be suggesting your C64 e...

Re: 6502 emulator in FB

These 6502 emulators may be useful: http://skilldrick.github.com/easy6502/ http://e-tradition.net/bytes/6502/ http://6502.org/tools/emu/ The best online emulator I used was http://6502asm.com , but unfortunately the domain seems expired.

Re: Gui for chess engine MINIMAX

Fast, responsive program, with a nice scale option. Neat code. Superb images by Dr_D. It doesn't max out a CPU core (like Yea Chess v.1.16, http://free-zd.htnet.hr/drazen/ and some others). Piece movement is perhaps too fast (easy to miss opponent's last move) and the program ideally needs a move lo...

Re: Forum question and Linux Editor question

Geany is pleasant to use with FB (unless you want to customize the color highlighting).

You can use other language editors for editing such as CodeBlocks (C++), and perhaps KomodoEdit (web files), although functionality will be reduced.

Purists might go for customised vi/vim.

Perhaps a GUI for Crafty? It's one of the strongest open source engines.

Garvan O'Keefe, in his FB 3D OpenGL chess program, used at least one GNU chess library (the GNU opening book I remember, perhaps another one too). That helps to set up a strong opening for the program to build upon.

Nice example pestery - particularly because of your own directory recursion code.

I had missed your example in all the searches done for research - probably because it was 'line' rather than 'code' or 'directory' related.

Code Counter

I have found Vince de Campo's command-line source code counter very useful: http://freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=16594 but wanted directory traversal for website projects (rather than dumping all files into a single folder in order to count). Content within multi-line comments also did not see...

Nice one fxm.

Trying out what you've detailed on Win 0.23b, I don't notice any perceptible difference between FBC-compiled vs GCC-compiled graphics executables (because of FBgfx?), but on intensive loop cmd-line executables the difference can be large between the two compilers. -O max-ed

It's an interesting demo-game Chung. As Lachie said, there is a lot of potential within this. Some of the effects you've used are very good (rolling sea motion, hill/valley terrain, Panther tank, fast OpenGL). Not sure about this one though... :) http://i1111.photobucket.com/albums/h478/stingingeyes...
