WHOGAS smarty! Why did you not tell us that info before? There are a lot of "dead" programmers! And you are a BRAT. I'm sorry you feel that way. I didn't give that information in the first place, because I had hoped that someone would know who I was talking about, and would know whether he was stil...

I'm already aware of his site, and have tried emailing him. I'm not new to the internet, you know.

Does anyone actually know where he could have gone? Specifically, someone who actually knows who I'm talking about?

Wallace software?

I haven't been on here in a couple years, and I was wondering what happened to Wallace Software, the guy that was developing Contact 2. Does anyone know if he's still around, and how I might contact him?

I've got the gravity engine working, a rain engine working, and the clipping is almost done. As soon as I get the guy's gfx finished and the clipping fixed, I'll release a beta. Thanks for the fb info... I may try downloading it again at some point. I'm very happy with my rain engine, even though pe...

hee hee... umm, actually I'm coding it in Qb 1.1 :(. Sorry guys. If Freebasic can support the code I've already written, I'd be glad to switch (but as I remember, Freebasic wouldn't run on my comp). The problem is, what I've already written uses PCOPY in screen 7 (which freebasic probably doesn't su...

Relsoft's 3d tutorials talk about polygon filling (in the vector article). The math was a little over my head, but it probably wont be for you.

Also, one of his programs uses the PAINT statement to fill a 3d box. You can check that out too.

Announcing Gflux

I usually try to make a habit of not announcing games until I'm sure I'll actually finish them, but I think I'll make an exception here. I'm currently in the beginning stages of my first graphical game (both my previous games have been text based). I don't want to reveal too much yet, but it will ha...

is there a way I can compile my Qb code so that it would run like an fb program (it would run well on any machine, not just like a dos program)? If not, is fb easy to switch to, and where can I get a good newbie tut/download?

is Qb dead?

I was just looking through Qb express 24 and noticed that there was almost nothing coded in pure qbasic. Everything seems to be moving toward Freebasic. Of course, once a program is in .exe form, nobody cares what was used to make it, but am I seeing the final last breath of the pure qbasic communit...

What is it: Someone else can probably give a better answer, but essencially, it means to turn your program from QB code (or any other language) into a format that the machine can read. Practically, from a QB coder's standpoint, it means to make your program into a .exe file, so you don't have to go ...

I'm taking a little jaunt into the text based relm of development. My next game, if I do finish it, will be a text based adventure, but will be presented as a computer program that you're using to hack a server and peruse some forums. I'll be releasing more info later on, but right now, I'll just sa...

You're having trouble getting it to work? That's weird.

Did you download Beta 2 on its own? In my experience, you need Beta 1 to run Beta 2.

halflife

HALFLIFE ROCKS!!!

I bouhgt it about two weeks ago, and I've been playing it every chance I get since. Even being out of date, it's still better than any FPS I've ever played.
