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

@gothon, Following your latest directions the build worked. It was missing ZLIB1.dll and MSCCR100.dll, which I downloaded into the same folder, for the FBPoL.exe to run. The little box guy moves too fast when I touch the arrow keys and still requires boundary and obstacle checks? Interesting that yo...

@BasicCoder2 You are very close, start the build from within the main folder (as you are already doing), but use the full path of your 'fbc' compiler. I actually have the 32bit and 64bit compilers in different directories, and specifying the compiler path enables me to switch quickly between 32 bit...

Pitto has it on github you can down load it as a .zip file from there

Interesting examples as I am interested in graphic programs.
I like that you can load an image from the net,

Re: Max Upload Size

I noticed Landeel used drive.google.com/ which for some reason pops up a "Oops! There was a problem with the network" message but it still downloads the .zip file

Pitto used github.com which lists all the files and which you can download as a .zip file

@Landeel,
After trying to play your game again I see there is more to it than I realised. You seem to have the FreeBASIC theme well covered. Seems a nice professionally written shoot em up game.

@Pitto, Duplicating the common actions and feel of other game controllers would be important I think. Having your character not behaving "as expected" in response to your motor memory wired in by other games would be annoying. However with practice I have gotten a hang of controlling Victo...

Re: GOAP: A Basic AI Tutorial

Really I think a simple code example of GOAP in action would have more tutorial value if it isn't clogged up with fancy graphics and the need for a dll to be included so that the code concentrates more on the mechanics behind the simulation. It can still have a simple graphics display as was done in...

BasicCoder2, were you able to run v005 now? Haven't had time to modify the code as I have real life issues currently occupying my thoughts. Leopardpm wrote: This routine does not check for infinite loops which you can easily accidentally create by the way you define the actions effects & pre-co...

Re: GOAP: A Basic AI Tutorial

Do you have the runtime libraries copied out of the "put these in same folder as the BASIC program" folder? Yes. It still brings up a console window, beeps, the console window vanishes and I have just noticed that the FBIDE menu Run list is faded out and unusable meaning I guess a program...

Re: Nominations for Forum Moderators

@dodicat, Reading back through the thread I don't get the impression there was any deliberate snub as you seemed to be casual about moderating the forum. You are one of the stalwarts of the forum and I would hate to see you lose interest. Your knowledge and programming skills have been much apprecia...
