Vista and the Win API

Does Vista require a revised Win32 API library? The problem seems to be library related - whether I use BCX or FreeBASIC to create a Win32 window (non-OpenGL), the result is fine on Win 98, 2k, and XP. But on Vista, there exists empty bands in the window where nothing is plotted. http://www21.brinks...

I like several things about Basic4GL: it's good for OGL tests, the IDE editor provides useful help and the speed, as mentioned, is not bad - but the size overheads can be considerable. For an OGL example present in both and FreeBASIC and Basic4GL (the spinning pyramid and cube) the standalone exe is...

Nice - achieves a lot in a small amount of code.
But on Windows, I needed to add a sleep for the program to be responsive:

Code: Select all

End If
   
    SLEEP
   
    If Multikey(SC_Q) Then zoom *= 2 : redraw = 1

Excellent. The first program generates some really sublime patterns at times.

Really nice demonstration h4tt3n in both graphics and code - wish I'd seen this thread before. (On one program run, the Earth's moon got detached and became a planet - guess the calculations occasionally go wrong? Or just another bug in Vista...)

Spaces may help to develop RSI sooner (4 spaces to 1 tab in my editor).
Might not be a problem when you're young, but after 30 I started noticing it.

Yes, very funny, to me at least. An example that richly deserves to be featured on the 'unmaintainable code' website.


I'd need a shot of crack directly in my eye to be able to maintain code like this.


Love it cha0s!

Striking effect and animation. Seems like an original concept to me. Perhaps it would make a good screensaver with Jofers SS kit?

Excellent effect, and intriguing - quite fractal-like.

One of the best tree fractal implementations I've seen.
Especially like the way the 'trunks' overlap the 'foliage' - makes the tree look more natural.

This tweaked SS kit still generates a 'suspicious pointer' error, but otherwise works on my 0.17b. Hope this can help. ' tweaked by tinram 6/6/07 to run with FB 0.17b (RETURNs in CASE statements were killing it) ' 0.16 original by jofers 'Option Explicit #include "windows.bi" Type ...

v0.17b versus v0.16b executables

A file compiled with version 0.17b on Win XP is larger (of all non-cmd line examples I've tried so far) than the same file compiled with 0.16b (e.g. 98kB versus 83kB for a small file). I'm wondering if this is because the default libraries for 0.17 are larger? For pixel plotting, I've found a 0.17-c...
