Apparently, we had plans to distribute QBOA #11 as a downloadable version, as I found it neatly zipped up within the directory. I've uploaded it to my server:

Doing a QB zine is tremendous work. Unless you've got the time, believe me...don't bother. :D

There was a QBOA #10 and a WIP of a QBOA #11 which was never published because the co-editor, Equuskia, disappeared off the face of the earth. :cry: And anyways...QBOA is merging with V Planet, so it is likely that there will be no more QBOA releases but instead, the material that was being worked o...

Okay, as I said...it wouldn't take me long to discover the problem, and as I suspected, the problem is your palette. Each image has a different palette; that's a no-go when dealing with a paletted mode. Each of your images needs to be using the same colors. I've taken the liberty to create a unified...

Hehehe dude I was mostly messin' with ya ;) but ya, that page was a real browser-killer. I'll take a look at your stuff though. :D

One thing though is you might want to look up "deadly sins of web design" for some pointers on making effective sites. :D

Nope. That has absolutely nothing to do with it. However, if you look at it in the sense of taking an ordinary sprite and PUTting it using the XOR operator, then yeah...I guess you could say it has to do with preserving colors. :D But since that's not what you're referring to here, then nope...that ...

wildcard sent me a few issues of old QBOA issues, saved as complete pages with graphics intact...even I didn't have those backups. I'll get them to you as soon as possible if you'd like.

Sounds like you got a pretty good grasp of masking, so I won't need to orientate you on that...but one thing you need to keep in mind is that you're in a paletted mode. Whoever described masking to you neglected to mention that if the palette is different, your colors are going to change. Basically....

I might be able to help you port it to C, but I'm sure you can find more accomplished C/C++ programmers to do it. Try also posting this at someplace like rpgdx.net, there's a lot of C/C++ and BASIC hobbyists there. :D

Both UGL and BWSB work fine. Each has their advantages and disadvantages: *BWSB supports a number of modules, UGL only supports MOD *BWSB supports 32 channels, UGL supports 64 *BWSB only supports 8 bit samples, UGL supports 16 bit samples *BWSB only supports 64kb samples, UGL has no practical sample...

You could develop some kind of scripting language, where each line of text in your file is either a command or a piece of dialogue. How I do such a thing is to have commands inside of special characters (usually pipe symbols or HTML-like characters). For example: say you got a piece of dialogue whic...

The way I'm doing it for Rise Of The Lich is to have like a chart for each statistic made into a large array. In QB, it might look something like this: DIM strength(25,5) AS INTEGER where the first element is the strength score (1 thru 25) and the second is the attribute (attack adjust, max press, e...

There are two ways of doing this:
