nice issue, Pete. It's been awhile. Had a few things in it that I had missed through my own searchings.

@burger: My question needed no code and needed no more explanation that I gave. really. Keep flaming if you want, I won't reply anymore.

The FB community is much more helpful and FB is just a hell of a lot better than your archaic language.

Wow the QB community has been reduced to a bunch of d1cks. I asked a simple, easy to understand question. I simply forgot if qb could handle returning user defined types from functions(UDT is a very common acronym, btw). Nodtveidt was the ONLY one to help me. The rest of you just flame me and say my...

Thanks Nodtveidt for understanding my simple question. I just haven't used QB 4.5 in a long time and I took a programming class in my high school and they still teach QB. I know more than my teacher does. :P What I wanted to do was having a function that would work like a constructor for the type. I...

Haven't used qb in awhile, quick question

It's been a long time since I've used QB.
I have been trying to get a function to return a UDT. Is it just me not remembering the proper syntax or can QB not do that?
thanks.

Hmmm... that's really interesting, Zim. Thanks for the advice! I realized my problem was with the division being rounded up so I ended up subtracting .4 from the result and it will always being a number rounded down. it has worked flawlessly and now I got my map displaying properly. My first FB scro...

I imagine that I confused the hell out of all of you. Sorry.
But I'm kinda glad no one replied because I figured it out on my own, and it was really easy too! I can't believe it took me so long to figure out. :oops:

If you don't have something already to use the mouse in qb, and you don't wanna use a library, I suggest grabbing some code from one of Vic's game tutorials for the mouse. That's what I used when I was still using QB.
Or you can try freebasic with built in mouse support as was already mentioned.

What you need to do is identify where on the screen is clickable
let's say (0,0)-(10,10) is clickable
then, you check to see if the left mouse button is clicked and if so where is it clicked and if it is in that clickable area...
it goes to a sub or something to do whatever you want it to.

EDIT: got rid of everything I posted earlier... I just thought of something... ya know those old qb double buffering tutorials? ya know to put the right pixel color on the right spot on the array you'd use the equation x+320*y? Well... for me the 320 would be whatever the image width was. It sucks t...

Trouble making a true equation

Sorry about the vague title... My program loads a map file and whatnot, let's say one of the points has a tile number of 9. I need to take that number, then, based on the number of tiles horizontal and the number of tiles vertical in the tileset, find the column and row that tile is in, then finally...

Thanks Z!re, I think I'll just stick with YAGL.
I wish I had something to offer to help with YAGL because it'd be sad to see the project die.

I dunno, AFLib2 seems a little... not good. It's definitely an old-school thing, seeing as how it is 8-bit. I don't think it's for me.

Right now I'm looking at either Allegro or YAGL I think.

What are your opinions of Allegro?

2D Graphics Library

Hey, I'm gonna attempt to do a little project in Freebasic and all I would like to know is what is your preference for a 2D graphics library? Until recently I've been learning how to use YAGL, then I took a break from 2D and did some 3D with OpenGL, got frustrated, and am now back to 2D. There are j...

Could it be because Width is an FB command? I thought about that but since yaglwrapper.bi had that paramater called width also I thought it must work still.

Me either, lemme look somewhere else..

Code: Select all

yaglgfxdevice_solidbox(.x,.y,.x+.length,.y+.height,.shade_color,.transparency)


That's the only place anything involving text dimensions comes up, do you see anything wrong there?

I feel a little like Dr. Frankenstein bringing this once dead topic back to life but I'm having one wee problem with yaggfxfont_gettextdimensions. In addition to centering text, I made an option where the text can have a background color rather than being transparent. The background color takes up t...
