You know, burger, I don't think anyone (especially Nodtveidt) cares whether or not you give a rip about Nodtveidt's opinion. But the problem here is for as much as you demand reasoning from others, you tend to insult them for no reason. What's the matter with BadMrBox's name, or Nodtveidts sig? Why ...

"d+308" means "times 10 raised to the 308th power."

burger2227, no offense to you at all, but that just cracked me up...I got a picture of Raffa turning in some FreeBASIC source that uses pointers, inline assembly, and function overloading... :lol:

That's funny. I have one that I wrote that's very similar to that. I was disatisfied with the ones I found in tutorials that looked very fakey. Mine also pregenerates each inner loop (x in your case) to a temporary array, then puts that out to the video card in a separate inner loop. The result: a f...

I would like to see an article of several graphic effects that can be used in RPG battle engines for spells, etc., especially with plenty of explanation of the theory behind them instead of just code.

Except for some strange sound functions and event-trapping stuff, you cannot have QB "do two things at once." I guess the question I have is why do you need to have it print two things exactly at the same time? Just print one after the other. To the user this will appear instantaneous.

You know, you guys are being pretty rude to the kindly QuickBasic master that is trying to help you and others. If it were me (which it is) I wouldn't take the time to answer your questions.

Vertical Retrace Question

A little background first. I'm using QuickBasic 4.0 on a Pentium II 333Mhz (Win98.) The other day I discovered from some tutorials about using OUT and INP to adjust the palette in Screen 13, so I wrote some subs for my RPG to fade the screen in and out. I was a little disgusted by the flicker though...

I'm making a scary RPG, but I've only just started really working hard on it a few weeks back, and since it's being written in scratch in QuickBASIC, it won't be in the contest. I did sign up at RPGDX awhile back though, and plan on posting my game there once it's done.

I'd put 'em up, but I don't actually have them on a working computer. I only typed a few of them in anyway (at the time I was like 11 and a really slow typer.) I seem to recall a topic here a while back though that had a link to a 100+ MB zip of scans.

I have some old 3-2-1 Contact magazines that have the programs in them. There was a "Hunt for Bigfoot", one where you manage a robot cookie factory, one where you chase your dog that was really lame, and my favorite, one where you were a stud and traveled room to room looking for food.

I have FFTactics already, its the type of game I'd rather play on the computer than a game console. Anyway, at the sale I bought FF3 (6 in Japan) for SuperNintendo. Wow! It's definitely worth the $30 I payed for it.
