If you're having a problem with Firefox, then your computer sucks. It's that simple. :P Firefox only lacks where IE-specific zealots live and breed like fork rabbits.

$$$$$$ is the name of the game... Of course it is. You don't become a multi-billion dollar company by continuing to support "ancient" operating systems and technologies, you can only do it by forcing people to "upgrade" to whatever new toy they come out with. And with each successive release, hardw...

ABSOLUTE is a total hack. QB's ability to link pre-built object files coded in assembly is a much better method. Properly implementing ABSOLUTE would require an emulation layer and that would be rather overkill. I personally think he should leave it out; that's a project in and of itself.

Nah, the whole game was about 10MB but the EXEs were only about 400KB each. Just two programs...I don't remember how they called each other though...that was like...8 years ago.

You've never seen a 5MB QBasic program? I guess you never saw my old RPG then...it was about 10MB! And coded in QB!

That's pretty likely. The only thing is that the data doesn't match. The old values will end up being overwritten anyways though, so no biggie. I haven't traced the code deep enough to see what these arrays do just yet, but I'm sure they're important. bongomeno: actually, that code you wrote would b...

Shouldn't you be using the same coordinates for your back as you do for your window? Also, why are you doing cls and then using the exact same code a second time?

What I would do is remove the READ and DATA lines...the variables can simply be filled in manually. In fact, C makes it even easier to fill in such arrays. It's not an issue of working around the code, it's an issue of "why was it coded this way in the first place". That's what baffles me. :)

Converting Wetspot to C

OK so I'm in the process of converting WETSPOT.BAS to C+SDL. The original code is in pretty straightforward QBASIC which should, in theory, make it very easy. However, it is worthy of note that the original code is also exceptionally sloppy and makes a large number of rookie mistakes. Take this frag...

I don't know of any free basic interpreters/compilers for Mac (Gambas maybe?). According to the Gambas website, it will compile but it will crash due to "endianness management". http://gambas.sourceforge.net/en/main.html Furthermore, it's only an ok system, but I guess it's the best free VB replace...

If you know the ASCII code of a character, you can hold the Alt key and type the code on the numeric keypad. For example, to do an A, hold Alt and type 65 on the numeric keypad, then release the Alt key. An uppercase A will be put where your cursor is, as if you had pressed the key. You can do this ...
