Hey TopGun! Glad to hear you're still around making games after all these years as well. I'm not sure you remember me from wayyyyyyyy back in the day. I'm from Nukem Enterprises (Used to go by a whole slew of names back then, Nukem, Nuke, NukemNOW, etc). We still have our disc app board from back th...

Re: My first project needs a li'l help

Expanding on the previous post, below is a way to go about making the pets randomly walk around the screen. I used a TYPE struct to hold all the information related to the pet under one "animal" type. You could also just use independent variables if you wanted but I like keeping related va...

Re: Pete's QBasic Site celebrates TEN YEARS

I'm thankful for being pat of the philosophy page (Nuke).

Any way of updating my link of the links page? Its right on the philosophy page but outdated on the links page. I know this is a tall order as this link is over 10 years old. Link should be: http//eriks.servehttp.com

Re:

We could use an update in participation around here! All I do anymore is control spammers. This forum has become a satellite of QB64 forum. Is there anybody, here, who still use qbasic? Or everybody uses qb64? Because, for qb64 users, there is no point in using this forum. Also, the site is almost ...

Ah, Text adventures are one of my favorite types of games! :D

Java Zork worked fine for me. About the n&s stuff, I always had problems myself walking around. Sometimes the directions don't work right. (Same goes for Adventure)

If you're looking for something similar to the C/C++ "\n" then see the post above me. If you're going to be writing them out a lot, you could always create a sub called "DisplayBattleText" (or whatever) and store the text in there. Then just use a "CALL DisplayBattleText&quo...

Also, you could try using SUBs or GOSUBs instead of GOTO label markers. This might prevent "fall through" that could lead to strange and hard to track errors...

Sounds interesting. I wonder where it will land in the trade off of complexity, flexibility, and possible instability to simplicity, inflexibility and stability.

Re: No Money

idk about online, but I know at my town's Library there's still a bunch of Qbasic/QuickBasic programming books... this is a better idea if I had the money. Just to go out and $$$ one would be even better. It's just to go or do any thing out side my own home would cost money. ? You're library charge...

Check to see if you don't have an extra "END IF" in your IF statement blocks.

I know I've found myself doing that sometimes when they get large... (esp. when they're nested)

If you're using Qbasic it should work but in Quick Basic you need the following:

http://www.qbasic.com/classic/q&a.html wrote:...load QBasic up like this from the command line: qb /l. This will fix all of your problems with programs that use the CALL ABSOLUTE command. Have fun.


Hope that helps!
