If you're just throwing it out, I'll take it. Heck, I'd even pay the shipping fees and throw a little in for your troubles.

I always thought STATIC preserved the value stored in the variable if the procedure or function is exited, then called again.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

Cool. Looking forward to your games. I would appreciate if you would advertise them in the FBGD forum too ( http://games.freebasic.ent/forum ).

K, I'll try out the newest version. Thanx Rel. Or, if you insist on using old low-res modes, go for 320x240x32bpp, as it's FAR more widely supported on modern hardware than 320x200x256 (which some newer cards are mysteriously unable to do, despite being a BIOS native mode). Cool, this is the kind of...

You could try double buffering. Although in SCREEN 12
you'd need a large array. I'm not sure if there are works
around this. Sounds like something I might look into
when I get some time.

What's there to try?

The last digit makes the card numbers added divisible by 10 so it would be rather easy to find that number using lastdigit = 10 - (total MOD 10).


Unless you're doing something totally different?

There are many ways you can shorten a file, here's one...

Open the file as binary, read the data, (either byte X byte or in chunks), manipulate the data, (shorten it, flip it, mangle it, do whatever you want),
write the data back to your file.

You can eliminate floating point calculations by creating sin/cos LUT's, and other types of precalculating methods. If you're using QB, then optimizing your graphical routines for speed is vital. One major speed optimization is keeping calculations, especially precisioned math out of nested loops. I...
