I'm not using fbgfx. I'm using Allegro. I checked the documentation but couldn't find an option for that.

those faces give me the creeps. It amazing what a couple of circles will do to your psych! Remove them and you have colorful lines. Add them and somehow your brain sees a monster. Survival instinct.

you can just use EDIT to change the three binary characters to your own requirements


True, but since this is probably a score from some game, it would reset itself to zero when you start. The point of this challenge is to change it while it's running.

I got fed up, i changed the code a bit. I implemented an array of 96 slots for each character instead of dynamically allocating the characters' space which could support any size font sheet. Now the font loaded has to have the amount of characters declared in the Font_Type to work, which is the amou...

I checked and that isn't it. I don't think the font would even display if those were the case.

h4tt3n: A bug in my definition is an output which isn't identical to what is expected.

The most I've spent is probably around 3 whole days(8-12 hours each) trying to find a stupid bug. It's so relieving when you find it and can move on.

Need help finding bug

I'm getting weird crashes that come up from time to time which I've tracked down to being my Font_Unload routine. These routines work well hasn't crashed in a long time, but just recently acted up again. I haven't changed any code in these routines for a while now, so it's not any new code that's ca...

Windows interference

I caught Windows interfering when my game was playing in fullscreen. Some app running in the background decided to do something and it minimized my game. Is there a way to prevent Windows from doing this?

If you don't have the crashing problem with allegro, then don't worry about changing it. Though I don't know why you can't fing the include files. If you can run allegro stuff, they're somewhere. I would only upgrade the FB compiler if you don't have the current version 0.20.0. FBIde is out of date ...

For me the icon only appears on the exe, but not in the title bar. I checked the other forum posts about this and people are saying to only include FB_PROGRAM_ICON ICON myicon.ico to the RC file which is what I did, but it doesn't appear at the top left of the window, only on the exe itself.

bfuller, Cherry: way to go! The key was to stop execution somehow because you had to change both variables externally at the same time with a hex editor, which you can't do fast enough if the program is running. I tried implementing the randomness you mentioned, but I gave up trying. It sounds like ...
