Well, I'm not a people person, never have been and never will be, really. But at least I understand your intent and message.

I'm atheist too...secular humanist actually, but that's atheist. I think the vast majority of coders are atheists...we're scientists after all. :D

Yes DaveUnit, this place is almost useless nowadays for getting help. There are no decent coding sites left for QB at all. Mac, according to amazon.com, that book is 650 pages, and was printed in 1990. It's almost 18 years old. Times change, coding discussions change. When one mentions a UDT in BASI...

Mac, get a grip already. Ralph's answer was the only one that was actually worth something. I didn't expect roy to say anything intelligent whatsoever...he rarely does. But I at least expected YOU to know what DaveUnit was talking about...the phrase "UDT" is used in BASIC programming all the time. I...

Cripes people, this is the easiest damn question to answer. UDT = User Defined Type. QB 4.5 doesn't seem to be able to return a UDT from a function because QB 4.5 is locked in the retardodaur days of forced variable suffixes. I don't know about QB 7.1 though, it might allow it. To get around this, c...

I especcially like the tutorial on springs and I look forward to the next part. My tutorial about Worms-style stuff was better in my memories :P. But it actually kinda sucks now. (Not that I had another version or something, I just expected that it was better). Maybe I will make a tutorial part 2, ...

I missed the thread, since I very rarely visit that forum (the lack of an off-topic forum really does kill its community feel). But I just read all five pages of it.

Without knowing the game or the sound method (SOUND command? WAV files?), such a request is largely fruitless.

Don't bother with RGB, just use a hex value.

RGB(0,0,255) would be &H0000FF

It's known as a BCD representation error, and there's no way around it. What you should do instead is used fixed point numbers.

Any ways my first FB game will be a martial arts real time RPG. (Should be real fun to make.)

Nemesis, Ogg is a container type for media files. Most commonly, it's used for streaming audio using the Vorbis codec (hence Ogg Vorbis). It's patent-free and of much better quality than mp3. Files tend to be smaller and sound better too as long as they're encoded from their original uncompressed so...

As rel says, the latest beta is fine. The only thing you have to remember is that you are going to have to declare all variables before using them, which coders should be doing anyways. :) If you're going to code in QB-like code, either -lang qb or -lang deprecated will work for you. If you want to ...

SCREENRES xpixels, ypixels, bits-per-pixel, video pages, options (set to 1 for fullscreen) That's how I use it; there might be more to it though. I think it can also set up an opengl window but I never use it for that so I don't remember how to do it. Look it up in the FB doc wiki if you need more i...

Ignore burger, he's an assclown troll just looking for a response from you. I gave screen 12 a try with the latest beta (0.18.3b) and indeed, it doesn't work. It works fine with the build I generally use (0.14b). EDIT: I was trying something foolish (using &HFFFFFF as the color) and it didn't work. ...

I'm still using FBIDE for Two Lords (it simplifies adding resources), but anything else I use FB for I just code in Notepad and compile from the command line.
