Re: Next generation name is FB++ ?

...I just see a propensity for some on this list to roll their own ad-hoc algorithms when a standard algorithm is often simpler and faster. Even If one is a low-level enthusiast then using existing such things should be appealing because they are so efficient. On the other hand if one just wants to...

Re: 52 card shuffle

Thanks, Imortis. I may be wrong but it looks like your code is falling fall of a random number generator's inability to provide us with all the possible permutations of shuffling a deck of 52 cards. FB's implementation of Mersenne Twister does not pass muster. See my ramblings above following "...

Re: Help in return for a donation

Oh my God! Did you read the description? I read this post and the other where you started asking about this. You refused to say what this was for there and here. The actions you are attempting to take can be used for nefarious purposes. Not saying there is no benevolent use for this code, but the s...

Re: Next generation name is FB++ ?

It’s an extension of the original C language and is a general purpose object-oriented (OOP) environment. (BDM’s Coding - Tips, Tricks) Hello, if we follow th...

Re: Need new gfxlib driver for Windows 7, 8, 10

angros47 worked on this Patch - Rendering of FreeBasic graphic on OpenGL . I'm not sure if anyone has taken much notice of it. I think the feature just needs a little more polish to finish. If it works really well, maybe this could be the alternative for win7, I don't know. It is already in the uno...

It means that AVAST has not seen the file before or has seen it rarely. This just means they have no reputation on the file. It is probably safe.

Re: What is good cross platform gameloop?

... 1) You both suggest screenlock/screenunlock only. I would tend to use page flipping, not for any good reason, just my habit to do so. I will try screenlock/screenunlock method. 2) Neither of you suggest a screensync. Without screensync, I see tearing on win7, both windowed and fullscreen. I sup...

Re: Is this a bug or am I crazy?

This is intended. From the manual: The For statement causes the execution of the statements in the statement block until iterator compares greater than endvalue (or less than endvalue if stepvalue < 0). Also, please use the code tags when posting code as it make things easier for everyone to read.
