I've been using FB since .10 and haven't noticed anything like what you say. It appeared in version 0.17. For the code look some posts up (the one without Sleep 1) - try to move the image to the left and right, it doesn't go with constant speed, but "jumps". Under 0.16 even without Sleep 1 animatio...

the code that was included with the original download + sleep 1 It wasn't :-( only two graphic files and two exe. BTW: does anybody know why FB 0.17 became so "jumpy"? And how can the Cls command be replaced? It slows down the program about a hundred times, almost no matter what color depth, but se...

Thanks, now it works as I expect it to work (or at least much better). I must think of some optimization for speed now.

Unfortunately, not. But, as I said, I didn't change a single dot. Some bmp pictures, some PUT instructions and it works much less smoothly on 0.17 than on 0.16. Strange. But I wonder what version TheBlueKeyboard compiled his game with, because his animation looks similarly - his ball and bat "jump" ...

I have noticed FB doesn't typically make animations as smooth as other programs FB isn't to blame. Inexperienced coders are. AGREED! Hmmm, I tried to make a simple game using FB 0.16 and it ran quite smoothly, but when I moved to 0.17 it started to "jump". The code was the same. Can you tell me wha...

Thanks for explanation, but it's a bit strange - to convert single precision number into single precision number... What about speed? Or I'll have to use a double then :-( although some other basics seem to work well :-/

I think FBEdit shouldn't work on the real *.bas file you are working on, but on some temporary file (but of course display right command line when compiling). When I write a program and press ctrl+F5 it immediately saves my working file even if I don't want it to. IMO it should save it only when I p...

Thanks. I appreciated this feature when I compared program speed - sometimes -exx optcion slowed it down more than twice. I must write my programs more carefully :-)

Missing fb error message

Try this: Dim Array(25) as Integer Array(29)=12 Print Array(29) Sleep and output is 12, although there should be an error. And try this: dim Array(25) as Integer Array(129)=12 print Array(129) Sleep and still no error message, only windows "there was problem with the application and it will be close...

Hi, As a newbie in programming, I'd ask for a message box about confirmation when deleting line "Sub SomeSubroutine" in minimized state. I minimized a sub (a "-" on the left) and then deleted the line with sub's name and the whole sub gone away. Fortunately I noticed it before I clicked Save button ...
