Re: Rotating blurry thing (BB4W + GfxLib)

It took me no more than ten minutes to create this (admittedly poor in comparison with David's) BBCSDL version; it may be tricky to improve on it greatly given SDL's 8-bit alpha resolution. You have to take full much credit for those nice smooth colour gradients on display with my version, because ...

Re: Rotating blurry thing (BB4W + GfxLib)

To be honest I don't see the point of posting these things here if you're not including the source code. Fair point. Here's the source code: http://www.proggies.uk/temp/blurry_src.zip I had to tidy up the program a bit and make some modifications so that it actually worked (it relied on a library f...

Rotating blurry thing (BB4W + GfxLib)

Here's a little blast from the past which I've just rediscovered hiding on a hard drive: http://www.proggies.uk/gfxlibdemos/progs/exe/blurryrotatingbb4wdx9fs.zip It's probably best to extract the EXE file from the zip folder before running, or your Windows/AV combination might refuse to run it. Clic...

Re: New BBCSDL games website/web page?

Mike, I see you deleted your thread about the BBCSDL version of 'Volatile Vases' - why was that? Have you withdrawn it?

I did actually download it, but didn't have time to give it a proper test.


David.

Re: New BBCSDL games website/web page?

Did you click on the HELP button? Yes, I did (more than once!). But I can be a bit slow on the uptake, me. It was aimed at BBC Basic for Windows. Sorry, but why then offer/submit a game that doesn't even run under BBCSDL for inclusion on the ' BBCSDL Games ' page? You dont need to play it. I wanted...

Re: New BBCSDL games website/web page?

I only have 1 completed game called Volatile vases. It was improved in 2019 and is a solo game. I have it on my forum along with other public tools. I am willing to contribute, although my game may not meet up to standards. I can supply link if you want to assess it. It doesn't run under BBCSDL bec...

Re: New BBCSDL games website/web page?

'BBCSDL Games' web page launched http://www.proggies.uk/bbcsdl/index.html I am very grateful to Richard for putting so much time and energy into porting the original BB4W versions of ' Tyoob ' and ' Forces of Darkness ' to BBCSDL. For those out there who may be thinking about making a game or demo ...
