Re: FreeBASIC Community produced game

If it went the way of a NanoHost revival, there are some ideas I've had in mind for years. Lua script AI files. Have the AI script specify urls for the sprites (and sounds?). Write and save your AI scripts in-game. Save AI to 'cloud'. Load any AI from the cloud. Script may or may not be made privat...

Re: FreeBASIC Community produced game

I'm usually sceptical about this sort of voluntaristic group work, but that's hardly a controversial stance. It would definitely require a strong head designer, who could rally people up around his idea, especial one or two people good with pixel art. The rest of the details could be sorted out in s...

Re: "A Love Letter To FreeBASIC" Game Dev Competition (Oct 2018 – Feb 2019), 1000 $ 1st prize

BTW, anyone playing ChangeV's entry? It's starting to grow on me, more and more. I am confused by the enemies stying on the playfield mechanics. I dig the idea, I'm just not sure if two type of enemies should remain with the same sprites after getting killed, even cycling walk animation in the case...

Badidea, approved! Sorry, I can't update the forum anymore, I need to reinstall it, but I feel weary of loosing the database or breaking something. I should prolly take sometime to do it, but everytime I get back to FBGD, it feels inconvinient. Anyone can vote in the community poll. I leave individu...

Hello...... Many people love this official game programming contest in our FreeBASIC community. This contest is a constructive tradition in our community. I suggest that this official game programming contest should not be abandoned. This official game programming contest should be held once per ye...

"A Love Letter To FreeBASIC" Game Dev Competition (Feb 2019 –Mar 2019) - Round 2

Hello everyone! I hope you don't mind me opening a topic for round 2 of the competition, not to clutter the original post which I think should be about round 1 entries, announcing winners, post-results comments, etc. For round 1 participants you can vote here: http://games.freebasic.net/forum/index....

Added missing/incorrect links for Impossible Victhorse, correct executable for The Secret Garden (build 1), and added source for The Secret Garden. Sorry for the blunders there. BTW, any admins here? mambazo of The Secret Garden can't restore his account. Account name mambazo. If someone could help ...

Sorry guys for the delay with listing the final entries. I have problem running Zamaster's The Secret Garden, and I'm still not sure how to go about it.

Is it playable for you?

Rather clunky, but that actually worked! Thanks. I'll get started on the game guide and try to document the known bugs or quirky features. The game is pretty hard to learn if you're not an avid RTS player but I believe you'll figure it out and enjoy it. I don't want the learning curve to be too ste...

Re: "A Love Letter To FreeBASIC" Game Dev Competition (Oct 2018 – Feb 2019), 1000 $ 1st prize

A server down shouldn't crash the game. Also, clicking localhost keeps crashing my game EVERY time. Localhost still needs a server. Run the game twice. Start one as a server and then connect to localhost with the other one. This is my first network game so some network things aren't perfectly smoot...

Boromir, I've lost one game by you, but then had 3 consecutive crashes trying to connect to your server again. Don't know what's going on there. Ran both x86 and x64 versions as administrator, x64 always failed, x86 connected ONCE. I have Windows 8.1. Don't know what's going on there. I do think it...
