The latter way is incorrect. Shouldn't the loops be from 0 to 5?

I would use paint, the position where the paint is targeted is the average of the two x values (x1, x2), and the average of the y values (y1, y2). That paints in the center of the shape.

My mate and I were once working on a program for Runescape that simulated keypresses and mouse actions. This was in VB and he managed to make an 'autotyper' that would repetitively type a message and chat it for selling stuff on the game, he tried to sell it on Ebay but Jagex got it removed. But I d...

All serious contestants should post on the ortise.com forums. The rules will soon be updated and the start date is yet to be set, but probably in one week. Please message me if you have any different theme ideas, I'd like to hear them.

3D RPG's (it looks like RPG will win) will certainly be allowed but won't be the theme. The comp will be something like this: An RPG comp; all games must be made in a BASIC dialect; one month to complete projects; text, ASCII, 2D or 3D; must be based around [a character lost in a scientific research...

I voted for Delta Code cause I loved their work! The Larry the Dinosaur series were excellent pieces of programming, and I still play Unofficial Tournament with my mate on his ancient machine. Joe Kings raycasting tutorials also taught me a lot. Pity his site don't work no more :cry: .

Lachie, you are obviously not aware (and no one else as I didn't find it necessary to point out) that this won't be the last poll for the competition. As I've said before this comp won't be rushed to start and finish. After this poll, I will probably start another poll/thread to decide the theme of ...

Well I ran the poll on freebasic.net forums and all the responses were shit and pointless so I'll just use this forum's responses. Judges and hosting are things to consider. I was thinking of using Pete and other QB/FB celebrities to rate the games as well as voting by forum polling, 50/50.

Well I won't be rushing to start the comp. I'd like a lot more votes first, what would be the most popular FB forum to post the poll on? Should the comp be for QB as well as FB?

So all the people that voted would enter a comp of such type? I might run a similar poll on other FB forums to see their response.

Include source file

Elo. I've been looking through the documentation for FB and can't seem to find a way to 'include' another source file, like in PHP. The function I'm looking for inserts the entire contents of another .bas file at the location in the current code where it's called. Is there such a function in FB?

Is it possible to define the dimensions and size of the array when declaring it, as I can't find any help on this in the documentation.
