Re: Code a game comp - The Great Christmas Adventure - Nov 4th to Dec 23rd

software which I had been meaning to learn for years (since 2011, I think) Thats around the same time I first looked at BBC Basic, but at the time, didnt realize it was the platform I was looking for. So I wasted years on other basic platforms until I met Richard and he introduced me to LBB then I ...

Re: Awesome idea (pull out note reference)

if you think the modification might be of more general interest I'm happy to consider it for the distributed version.

Ill attempt to make the side window beside the BBCSDL editor after I'm done my game. I really think this side reference note area would be very handy.

Awesome idea (pull out note reference)

As I was working on my game I was keeping note of all my global variables and any new ones I needed to make. I then copied my variables into the LBB editor for quick reference. I know the above note may be the solution to the task, I came up with the idea of a slide out text window that would allow ...

Re: BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 v0.27a released

Thanks Richard. I shared a link to this post to my Facebook programming tools group. There are currently 56 members and its growing. Your efforts are appreciated, especially considering there isn't many basic language developers that have made such public efforts at the level you have and with the b...

Re: Leaving the forum (again)?

What I do know is that my stress levels are 'through the roof', I am hardly sleeping at all and I feel absolutely terrible. I don't say that to attract sympathy, merely a statement of fact. I have problems with sleep too. Sleep apnea so bad I have to use a machine to keep breathing. 30 seconds out ...

Re: Leaving the forum (again)?

It's pretty clear to me what decision I must make, but I'll wait until I've seen the reaction (if any) here before making it final - I was criticised last time for leaving without any explanation. Richard, there has been no conflict, at least none that can't be solved with a calming word or two. I ...

WAIT and *REFRESH

If you have viewed the video showing my animated character running around and even bouncing on a animated spring, there is no *REFRESH or SPRITE commands used. I mostly use well timed WAIT commands and have heavy control of action changes. A good WAIT appears on both of my computers very smooth with...

Re: Video preview of my christmas game

I think you could make it into an "adventure" by including suitable puzzles to solve(for example, needing to find keys/levers to unlock closed areas, etc). I don't think dialogue is a necessary part of an adventure. I actually was planning on doing that. There will be potions and tools you can pick...

Re: Video preview of my christmas game

Have you seen Qube's work-in-progress effort? ---> https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_cont ... R5ce7DE8_c Makes me feel like giving up. Good luck with your entry, and getting it done before the deadline. David. I was referring to this, but I should have been more careful who I owned the link to. I ...
