Imagine a 3d space where each point in the space has a temperature. The temperature could be defined as a fourth dimension. When we want to find out how "close" two points are, we can calculate the 4D distance as formulated in the previous posts. So even though two points might be very close in the ...

What is the declaration of palz ? I get "Expected Identifier" If I use: Dim palz as Integer palette using palz And "Expected Pointer" if I use: Dim palz as Integer palette using palz[0] So one of the following must be correct: Dim palz as Integer Ptr palette using palz palette using palz[0] Even tho...

Antoni, way to pound out the pages: you are a machine! My only quality is to be bold enough to start writing about a thing I only half understand: I have started nearly 100 pages, I know my pages are incomplete, badly written and formated, I did them just as a start, of course any adition is welcome...

Pixel Perfect Print Placement

This post shows an easy way to overlay coloured text anywhere (not just by row, col) on a graphics screen using FreeBasic's own GFX LIB. Once upon a time in another life, I was writing a QB45 program to show bar charts in screen mode 12. There are the Locate and print commands for putting text on th...

Don't know what you did, but the startup and shut down of the compiled fb win32 apps is way faster. Very nice job.

I was kind-of thinking it was something to do with djgpp. I've been pretty happy with my djgpp install but seeing that I have just added mingw, I probably have some problems in my shell setup where I'm switching between dev environments. Looking forward to testing the dos release. Thanks for the poi...

Compiling FB and Rt Libs for Win32 and DOS from CVS

I was having problems with my fb code and was seeing several "fixed in cvs" posts around, so here's my experience with building fbc from CVS sources: I reviewed suggestions posted here: http://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=261 here: http://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=842 here: ...

Xecronix, What do I think about what? It's your game; it's your map editor. What do you need? You asked for an opinion about an in game gui api and I gave one. I said I would help you out if you need it. If you need to use SDL then go ahead and say you need to. Don't let me stop you. Don't worry abo...

I was reluctant to contribute to the fbwiki at first because I thought I might offend someone by changing what they had already done. But after an invite from v1ctor I was much more comfortable. I proceeded to the missing docs section which I had no trouble finding and worked on a few of the documen...

Xecronix, Your design document looks like the start of something that is eventually going to be loads and loads of work. Perhaps looking at dumbledore's wx-c might be a worthwhile exercise before going off and designing a new GUI specification. I really like the idea from your first post to the thre...

it uses my own sdl_gfx library -src'es are on cvs as well. Unfortunately fb comes with lib with exact same name. I did download your own sdl_gfx library. I renamed it to SDL_WG. It compiled. I think the problem really is with my dev setup. Maybe the .h files for SDL were wrong when I compiled the L...

You should take a look at cvs then. http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/wizgui/WizGUI/ Thoo yes it isn't finished... but it could be used as a base to develope new gui or even continue this one. OK, I got the code from CVS and after tweaking the makefile(s) a bit; it compiled. when I ran the demo...

There's also FIX() that returns the whole number part only:

FIX(2.9) returns 2
FIX(-2.9) returns -2

Re: GUI but with a different goal

I've seen a couple of GUI projects listed in these forums. But, I haven't really read about one that is what I'm looking for in a GUI. Basically, what I need is an "in game" GUI API. I guess I was stuck on "GUI API" and "game" all in one sentence. If I were writing business application software I m...

VonGodric has already done such a thing some month ago. It's called WizGUI (based on SDL) and it's on sourceforge. Maybe this fits your needs. I looked under wizGUI on sorceforge and the project is pre-alpha, no files released, it doesn't look like much is happening. I also looked at VonGodric's ol...
