Re: WTF Inkey???

from F1 help: "MultiKey should always work in graphics mode, as long as the screen is Unlocked " :) I've used multikey in the past (in one of my programs) and it caused so much problem that i had to ditch it. Actually found the code together with the comment i made at the time (line 42 and...

Re: WTF Inkey???

Been playing around with it and now know it's just a timing thing eg. with do if inkey=chr(32) then ?"paused" if inkey=chr(13) then ?"Cont.." sleep 20,1 loop while inkey<>chr(27) ESC will always work as it's after a sleep hence will pick up the key first and if i do do if inkey=c...

Re: WTF Inkey???

WTF Inkey???

I wanted to just do a simple thing and can't believe it just doesn't work! - WHY? I started with: do if inkey=chr(32) then ?"paused" if inkey=chr(13) then ?"Cont.." sleep 20,1 loop while inkey<>chr(27) then when that didn't work tried: dim as string in do in=inkey if in=chr(32) t...

Re: Street Outlaws NPK Betting Game

@Dodicat On my Win10 machine it works fine apart from sometimes the betting frame blacking out in which F2 reloads and usually ok if not then F2 again and that's where that code you posted is about - to make sure the video is playing before i pause it to display that betting frame. I basically use t...

Re: Street Outlaws NPK Betting Game

Ohh you can't see vid? Wish you said that before. Like i said above i've always had to install an mpg codec on any system to be able to see video in FreeBasic using either MCI or Dshow and the problem is not the video files so you will have to do the same. As mentioned above also i use K-Lite Codec ...

Re: Street Outlaws NPK Betting Game

Hi Dodicat long time no see :) Haha i thought i was the only one with the problem - weird huh? With every windows OS since 98SE i've use this old program (K-Lite_Codec_Pack) and just install the mpeg decoder and then i can see video haha - just seems ridiculous to have to do this :) Anyway when you ...

Street Outlaws NPK Betting Game

Just finished this project that i've wanted to do ever since i done that Strip Poker game. It's a betting game where you bet on which racer wins the 1/4 mile drag with the aim of gaining the highest possible $$. Footage is of real life races and there are a total of 21 hence a 50MB download. Instruc...

Upload Site

Hi - looking for recommendations on a good upload site for my game so it can be downloaded by the forum. I've still got Mediafire i think but last time some had problems and said to use something else - thanks.

Re: Play videos on the console (Windows)

No difference with that shorter function. Could just be my system setup or configuration maybe even my version. Win10 has these weird problems like all of a sudden my jpg graphics program (Lview Pro) causes a delay once a pic is loaded (can't open a directory - you have to wait) and also my screen b...

Re: Play videos on the console (Windows)

Try disabling the blue frame ~~line 102, comment out SetWindowTheme(p," "," ") Made no difference at all. I tried an AVI file and that has weirder behavior eg. while playing if you click on the title bar the video stops then shows 'not responding' then if you close the window sa...

Re: Play videos on the console (Windows)

Wow amazing! (didn't think you could do this). just a few hiccups: in both WINFBE + FBIDE there are no controls in title bar and when vid ends you have to close the window which then hangs the program (not responding message in title bar) then a small FBIde/WINFBE window opens and you select 'close ...
