I use as much time to solve this as you spend time to tell what is your problem.

IMAGE - TEXT = CANADA

Well, BMP would be easiest. But PNG would be the best (maybe also GIF)

You could do a search on Google, I've tried some online ones.
What you need to do then is, figure out how their stuff works and make one yourself...

When is anybody gonna just give up on Lee? Hopeless and clueless at responses. EK you had it right the first time!

Actually bitmaps are converted using ASCII characters already in the file!

I can make a bitmap of any QB screen. Text and even in games!

Why?

Post by burger2227 » Wed Jan 09, 2008 2:06 pm

Why give up? Because it seems that you do not put a lot of time into your questions! Also you do not check your code for simple errors! So we are left trying to guess all of the time.

Try to explain EXACTLY what you need and how you would like to accomplish something. If you have problems, don't just simply post your code for us to fix for you. Tell us what errors you get also! I already have a ton of other peoples code that I have corrected so I don't run everything posted in a question.

Syntax errors are YOUR problem, not ours!

Hamburger told it in a hars way but i agree with him in general level.
If you dont even use time to explain problems so we can understand them with out multiple "what you mean" questions, you frustrate us and we dont like to help anymore.

There are few things peoples should know.
1. No one of us gets anything except enjoy of helping here.
2. If you dont try to explain your problem in best way you can, why we should help you in best way we can?
3. If you have a huge (hundreds lines long) code, then strip non-needed parts out of it and post only the problem lines. It is highly frustrating when you see 120 lines long code and problem is PINT "HELLO" at line 111.

Noobs does ask noobs questions. Tiny and even silly problems comes for sure. Just keep on goin and if some more experienced gets pissed for you, just keep on coding and learning.
But remember, quality of your questions earns responses of same quality from us.

We dont bite, dont worry, but we might bark time to time ;)

This the part where I once again have to say it's McClouth, but I'll forgive you. It's not your everyday name.

I was just trying to help, just like my fellow coders here in the 'Matrix.'

HARS EK?

Post by burger2227 » Wed Jan 09, 2008 7:21 pm

Perhaps you meant HARSH? Now I can see why Roy calls you the:

"The Pain in the Arse!" :P

I told it like it is! Why beat around the Bush? Lee has just posted another question! So I nominate Lee as "Itch in the Arse", if Roy approves. (the Queen is the one telling me to STFU lol)

Did you find what you needed Lee? I STILL don't know what you are actually trying to do, but you shure liven up this place by saying nothing!

Still "King!"
