heh. maybe it was providence. if not for the random email i probably wouldn't have logged back in and found out about qb64. i would still think QBASIC was dead.

program output looks like a substitution code. send output to the NSA at Fort Meade and have them run in circles trying to crack it

now running in qb64 v0.841

Text is showing up correctly now when compiled with qb64 v0.841 In fact it's looking really good. Here's some screenies of me sailing around with the Ship In A Bottle item and getting beat up good by a Scorpion in the desert. http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h135/coma8coma1/DSQscreenshot22-QB64test...

just glancing at the code it appears to spit out 40 lines of random letters and spaces.

the real question is what's the OP's question? are they asking us to simplify the code?

How about changing dots with "_"? It would be easy to do. Just use some decent editor and replace. E.K.Virtanen i dunno man. isn't qb64 v0.841 going to resolve this? we're looking at possibly as soon as one week from now release date. i'm stoked! can't wait to my text working again. is the linux ve...

I replied, so check your email.... line 1292 SUB Draw.All Compiler is expecting () but adding the () doesn't fix it huh? how much you wanna bet that's the "dot in the line label" bug that was fixed in a recent update? I read about it briefly on qb64.net, but the only way to be sure is to wait until...

okay E.K., I sent you the bare minimum that should be required to run DSQ. it's just the source code and the data folder that contains all the graphics and stuff. it should be as simple as creating a folder called c:\dsq\ and unzipping the the contents there. good luck, and let us know what you find...

so if the qb64 IDE and your old games run well in Linux, do you think that's a good indication that DSQ might run good as well??

woot! old school RPGs for the win! Glad you like :wink: The artwork is probably my strong point. I'm not much of a programmer being totally self-taught as a sort of hobby on the side. I hope we can find a way to make it run on as many operating systems as possible, but if it's not Windows then I don...

yeah, I had my reservations about my QBASIC code running on someone's elses stuff, and sure enough first try. qb64 is really impressing me with it's compatibility. i've since tried several other projects and they've all ran perfect except for a couple little instances involving that DRAW command. ve...

just some quick screenies I took this morning using QB64. Note that the text looks a little funky because the incomplete incorporation of the DRAW statement in QB64 as of yet. I'm told this will probably correct itself in the next incarnation of QB64. Just showing off mah purdy gfx.. http://i63.phot...

i've posted my question over at qb64, but the more i think about it I don't know if it's the PSET command causing it because I have plenty of PSET graphics in that game, and *only* the Text routine is boogered up. I'll probably be up all night experimenting with it to see if i can help get to the bo...
