Re: Article comparing FreeBASIC to cyBOSS

It contains over 1300 commands and functions. Translation: software bloat The cyBOSS Runtime Platform executes compiled P-code lightning fast, and supports string space containers up to 500MB ea. Translation: this is an interpreter, not a true compiler like FreeBASIC. 500MB strings? FreeBASIC can d...

Re: Combining a sprite with alpha transparency.

That's odd. When using bsave to save an image, the bmp that's created should have the same bit depth as the current graphics mode, so even if the alpha transparency isn't working, the bmp created while in a 32bit graphics mode should be a 32bit bmp

Re: Combining a sprite with alpha transparency.

When using the image functions - imagecreate, bload, bsave - FB automatically uses the bit depth of the current graphics window. Knowing this, I've made a small bit of code that can load a 24bit bmp with a pink transparency mask, replace the pink with 100% transparent black, then bsave it to a 32bit...

Re: clearing sign bit with 'And=' Func.

I may be misunderstanding something here, but are you just trying to make sure you get a positive number from whatever this "input1" comes from?

Re: Procedural terrain engine.

You need to use delete on every element that you used new on - and in reverse order with nested arrays like your example. Additionally, there are two versions of the function: delete and delete[] delete by itself is for freeing a single element ptr, delete[] is for freeing a ptr array. For example: ...
