Replies: 16

Err... First of all, I find it ironic that you ask for credit when you've got a crippled version of SetVideoSeg in there with no mention of the original author. And secondly, you're still only poking one byte at a time. SuperPut is definitely faster. Now I suppose we'll get into a debate about what...

Or you could, if you knew circuit board logic, hard-wire the program onto your mother board.
That might be a little over the top but, I can never tell :evil:

In QB, you must either spend twice the amount of memory using the original sprite, and its mask, or write your own custom sprite routine. Usually the custom routine is slower but saves the memory, so its up to the programmer which is more benificial. In a few days when I dig it up and maybe make a f...

....Yes, good point! I always used ... DO:LOOP UNTIL TIMER<>TIMER Cya, Nemesis I think I get the idea of your code, and it's very clever. But I have a doubt about how the code works on a fast PC. TIMER ticks of 1/18 of a second are slow. If a fast PC can access TIMER twice very fast, thus always ge...

Just in case you're concerned with the accuracy of sampling the TIMER, you might consider synchronizing to the TIMER before you start your actual TIMER sampling loop, using the following: Synch! = TIMER 'synchronize to TIMER DO Start! = TIMER LOOP WHILE Start! = Synch! The PC's system time is updat...

I've used GET/PUT buffers of over 200mb in size without problems in FB Wow, I wasn't aware FB could handle memory sizes like that! I'm anxious to experience FB for myself but, frankly I don't need all that power since I can pull off feats like that with QB. (Let me highlight the word " like" :wink:...

Flickering might have stopped on your monitor but, it might not work
so well on others... :cry:
Not sure though, just a guess.
To stop flicker use a double buffering technique.
If you don't know what that is or how to do it then, just ask :wink:

CYA!
