So I'm not alone to be confused. Feels good. @badmrox @Pritchard @alexit02 I apologise for waxing on a bit. It's been exceptionally hot these last few days in Scotland, and no rain for weeks. I must be coming down with heatstroke. Do you ever write a post, send it to the big wide world, and then sa...

I'm going for spaceships. Have you ever played Begin? sort of like that. I'll have a player ship and a non-player ship and they duel. You can order the player ship to change course and adjust speed, or fire weapons at its target, and the computer will do the same for its ship. I think I can find a ...

Re: FB on Fedora9_x86_64?

Hello, I'm quite new to Linux and I don't know if it's a sensible thing to do, but I'm trying to run FreeBASIC on Fedora9_x86_64bit. I downloaded the installation package and installed it with this result: [root@localhost FreeBASIC]# ./install.sh -i ./fbc: Symbol `ospeed' has different size in shar...

Just hang in there. I didn't understand Object oriented programming until I needed it. Foo and Bar aren't key words. They're just some words often used in examples. Here's a use for types: type foo bar as integer end type dim myFoo as foo print "The bar in myFoo is: "; myFoo.bar myFoo.bar...

Strings and memories

This thing has come back again to hinder my progress. I'll post 16 lines of code below of very basic basic code. It's a big loop, yes, unnaturally, just so to show the accumulation of temporal strings (garbage). Run the code, someone and watch processes in the task manager, if you have XP. dim as i...

Pinball maths-a final run

I've noticed the recent posts are are getting a bit (heavy), the syntax doesn't look like basic anymore, more a mixture of Haskell and Objective Caml. Maybe I have to go to night school. Anyway, for a bit of light relief, and so you can all chill out, I've concluded my little Pinball game. When you ...

There seems to be something wrong with the sideways movement. Now, any sideways movement makes the ball stop bouncing all together and move sideways in a straight line until the key is released. I went ahead and made a little demo to show you what it was I was trying to say when I said smoother mov...
