Thanks. Actually, this is "General Discussion" where you can "Discuss anything from the DEF INT command to the meaning of life!"

I heard in FF9 you can't usually go back to places you've been before. Is this true? I enjoy going back and visiting towns and areas in FF7.

Need advice from Squaresoft fans...

Hey, I'm only about one hour away from finishing Final Fantasy VII, and seeing as our local used videogame store is having a half-off sale tommorrow, which one should I get next? I've done my research, I know they all have nothing to do with each other and that FF7 is the best one, but what's everyb...

Hey, I know this was an old post, but I just noticed it now. I downloaded Tower of Fortune awhile ago expecting some lame app but instead found it to be really nicely done and professional. Good work! I was very impressed.

Hey,
A couple years back I wrote a simple but solid text adventure called Fire From Heaven in QuickBasic 3.0. The zip is located at www.geocities.com/bdzao/ffhwr1.zip and a description and screen shot of it can be found at my games page: http://bdz.bravehost.com/games.htm
Thanks.

Separating Hex Values

If I have 2 hex digits (0-15) as the nibbles of one byte, what's the fastest way to retrieve those two numbers from that byte value? (I.E. 255 to 15 and 15)
Thanks.

Thankyou everybody for the advice! Just to let you know how I'm going about this: 1. I have already written a tile editor for making 16*16 tiles and another for 16*24, it stores these in random access files. I'm using Screen 13 256-color graphics. 2.

Hey,
You may want to consider using 16*24 sprite as characters, this gives a lot more room for detail, (you can still use 16*16 tiles for scenery.) Tsugumo's pixel tutorials may help you.

RPG advice

Hey everybody,
I'm setting out to build an RPG in QuickBasic 4.0. I probably don't need programming advice, but did you learn anything while building an RPG that you would like to share? Thanks.
