Re: Which operating system?

If you go Ubuntu Linux, you can get the *.ISO file, and burn a live-CD, and it will self-install, and generate a boot selection menu when the computer turns on. I think Ubuntu is up to ver 11. ~Kiyote! I've usually just used the LIVE CD UBUNTU for temporary, non-install run-from disk mode, only, for...

Re: Using both 32/24 bit and 8 bit ImageCreate images

If I'm in [a screenres mode or SCREEN with] 32/24 bit color, and do an ImageCreate, it won't make an 8-bit color buffer for me. Doesn't ImageCreate depend on the depth of the color you're currently in? ~Kiyote! I know they should work together, just I don't know how to do the image header properly.

Re: mandelbrot

Oh, nice.

Syntax can be annoying.

I've thought about doing stuff in depreciated, but I don't like the idea of getting all syntax -like in one mode, then trying to switch around.

Re: mandelbrot

Should I do the whole "ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS" method to purge the old version, before I install a newer version?



~Kiyote!

And, I can't do the #print command, cause it won't even compile.

Using both 32/24 bit and 8 bit ImageCreate images

I'm really really really wanting to use both the 32/24 bit pointer/ImageCreate graphics, at the same time as the 8-bit ones. What does the ImageCreate routine actually do? There are several reasons I think it's prudent to think that it's ok to use them together.. 1. People access the memory faster b...

Re: mandelbrot

bfType As String * 2 = "BM"


This line would not compile with my version of FreeBasic.

Did this get patched in later versions?



~Kiyote!

Had to put in a tiny re-write, but.. eh. Is fine.

O.O thank you!!!! And Chrome offered to translate the german for me, although the code was pretty uni-language. ~Kiyote! DIM hBmp AS HANDLE As Handle? What is that? A regular image ptr? [edit] Or is it a windows handle for using DC type context, .. things.. how you can draw to the desktop and stuff

Images To/From Clipboard?

Has anyone gotten the clipboard to send/receive images?

I've seen the text passing back and forth from the clipboard, but wasn't sure if the image graphics moving was figured out.

Re: Timing game just right

I'm going to depend on measuring the NOP command enough times within a second, when I'm going to properly time my games. I want to say.. ok.. this is going to be 100 milliseconds, and it will be so on the next computer. Having an unreliable system for time, such as SLEEP, not that it's unreliable pe...
