yes time is contestable: it is 3:00 in london and 5:00 somewhere else and when traveling at the speed of light, time stands still. but in the same way, when traveling at high speeds, length,width, and hight contract. so by saying time is a matter of perspective, you really aren't proving it isn't a ...

What?

Please elaborate on that! All I know iis to run a batch file of qb with the library:
c:\qb l/ c:\libDirec\lib

and then include the .bi file
rem $include 'lib.bi'

how would you include two libs? Besides using PAK or other lib manager

A proposal for The Ultimate, Open Source, Library

all right! As you know, I've had libaries on the brain for a week now, asking a bunch of idiot questions, but as I examine them all, if realized something... after looking over the manuals of rellib, directQB, ds3qgpp, futurelib, neolib, ugl, cosmoxX, and many others, I realize most of them do much ...

well right now, I'd like to use dsqb44 and relLib together. dsqb44 is fabulous and rellib has the best sprite routines. Well the two libraries play nice with each other?

ummmm... anyways, those ideas sound great but my current method doesn't seem to work so well... I open the dir.tem file and read the strings out. I think there might be a better way, though. it's pretty slow and it can be unreliable. is there a better way to read directory info into qBasic? check ou...

well error checking would be the last part I implement. perhaps even pass in a variable that decides whether or not to use error checking for each specific routine? hmmmm... any ideas for specific funtions, though? my basic strategy is to open the hided directory file, in each folder, then by way of...

you should re-write the method with better documentation. it looks really nice but only hard core qb coders understand it.

that's a really nice put routine but sometimes, you like not having anyone else's name on your work! That's why I don't always use libraries

I worked on the same thing! Try a book on vector calc for more info. my game had a round ship that would bounce of walls. I projected the current path of my ship, then if that short projection crossed a line, it bounced back. never could finish that game though... basically i had two line segments: ...

There are tons of tutorils out there. just google it!

I've never done 3d cause I'm bad at math but it looks like PAINT and LINE commands...

just modify the end points used in the LINE command with the 3d concepts you already know!

thank you! I knew I wasn't the only time that read "A Brief History of Time" and no, time is NOT a UNIT. it is a dimension. we measure time like we measure width, depth, and height. But time is a direction in which objects exist ie: time is measured in hours, minutes, millenia and distance in feet, ...

the 4th dimension is time

All these past posts only show 3d cubes manipulated, not a 4th dimensional objects. Dimensions are just directions or, ways we measure distance. For example, I want to meet my girfriend but where? I might say the 3 floor of the buliding at the corner of 3rd and main. For the sake of arguement, 3rd s...
