Re: okeys, maybe i was a little harsh

but still, in my superior opinion, q basic is better. there are reasons why everyone likes what they like, most often because they've been programming with it for a lot longer (thus it's more of an "aww, i can't give it up" kinda thing). so, in any case, both of us are right and wrong. it's just a ...

Very interesting... especially because my VGA reference says that port 0x3C9 only uses the first 6 bits and ignores the rest. Only 6 bits would make a maximum value of 63 possible... but I can write values up to 255 when I tweak the code. I always thought the QB text mode was an EGA mode. Anyway, my...

To my knowledge, it would take a lot of tweaking of the VGA registers. And you can only have 256 colors at a time on a VGA. (reading my VGA reference...) Okay, it seems to me that you'd have to use Screen 13, and then write your own text routines. I don't know that an interrupt would do it either......

Pretty much. Like I say, it's pretty easy to understand once you have a grasp on programming in general.

Um... something went a little wrong on my tut. It should say:

#include <cstdio>
#include <cstdlib>
#include <iostream>

But it just says:

#include
#include
#include

I opened up the source, and it does have the include files in the tut. So it must be mistaking it for HTML tags or somethin.

Holy frig, tell me about it. It took like 5 tutorials and 3 books before I finally got all of it. Most of what I learned came from C++ for Dummies, but Polymorphism still baffled me. I bought Java for Dummies as well, and it explained it quite well, although I gotta read up on how C++ does polymorph...

Well, I was only able to type up what I had of my tutorial. I've been fairly busy lately, (school in the day, go home, quickly eat, go to work till 8, driver training till 10, homework) leaving little time to write. But I got the following topics covered: -Printing and inputting from the console -va...

Well, yeah, that's pretty much what it is. I guess you'd call it "C++ for the QBasic Graduate" or something like that.

I'll type it up.

You mean like what are the QB equivilents of certain C++ commands? Because I was working on something like that. I could certainly write it up in a text editor if you'd like and send it to Pete.

Well Mr. McClouth, it seems you've been living two lives. In one life, you are "Seb McClouth", a programmer of the QBinux OS. You write code, you chat on forums, and you study the Novix Filesystem. The other life, is lived unofficially. You are known as "Seb_McClouth_Can't_Log_In", and no one is sur...

Damn, looks like the site was corrupted... I HAD posted something here, but it's not here anymore. So here I go.

It's not really a good idea to switch between screen modes unless you absolutely HAVE TO... and quite honestly, I can't think of anything that would need to.

My suggestion: screw DosDraw. Go download PixelPlus256, so you can use BSAVE and BLOAD.

There's already a post going on right now about this. A good place to start is Chris Chadwick's PixelPlus256. There's a file called usersubs.bas, and it has a font routine that I'll probably utilize for my game.
