That was my original idea actually, Zamaster. I have stuff in some subs already that just prints to the screen the error until I thought of how to really store them and display them.

Thanks for your help yet again Zamaster.

Making a console for my program

First off, sorry for creating so many topics. :oops: Anyway, I'm trying to make a console for my program to help with debugging and whatnot. I have two ideas for holding the data being displayed: 1) I make an array that holds the last only a certain number of messages I send to the console. 2) Make ...

I know you stored your map in ram, but I was just wondering about any little optimizations that could be done. I just don't want a slow drawing routine, but I really doubt I hafta worry about that since I'm not coming even remotely close to pushing any boundaries. :P I was talking about the actual m...

Thanks for some code, Zamaster. I appreciate the help. I forgot to mention that I'm using Freebasic, btw. Also, I need my drawmap routine to be as fast as I can get it. When I load the map I want that data to be put in an array because of the fact that reading from ram is a hell of a lot faster than...

Making a map loading sub

I'm trying to make an efficient sub that loads multi-layered maps that can use multiple tilesets. I've had no luck finding any tutorials that really focus on loading maps like that. Here's my map format so far... map name LAYER (number) width height tileset used 0,1,4,2,3 (map data and whatnot) LAYE...

I don't see the relevance either...
Anyway, I got the newest version of Yagl, it has getTextDimensions so I should be good now.

Thanks again, Z!re.

Okay... um... FBIDE is giving me some crap so I took a look at yaglwrapper.bi for reference and I see no yaglgfxfont_gettextdimensions...
I'm gonna check to see if there's a newer version of YAGL out.

Thanks a lot Z!re, I'm still trying to memorize YAGL's routines so I don't know a lot of the functions. I reference the sample programs and online documentation but I guess I missed that routine. Anyway, thanks again Z!re. You sure know YAGL very well. When I heard that you and Nekrophidius were usi...

Making a Centering function for True Type Fonts

I'm using Freebasic and the Yagl library(not really necessary for you to know bu whatever. =P), and I want to know how to figure out how to center the text no matter the size of text. With Old QB and using 8x8 fonts only it's easy to make a centering routine, but it gets complicated when using True ...

I don't need something as extensive as GIMP, just a better paint program basically. I'm using Game Maker's image editor instead of paint currently.

I just didn't know if there was anything else that was particularly useful. So i guess what I got is good, now I gotta learn about all the changes from QB to FB.

Thanks for the help, but I've made the decision to switch to FreeBasic and make better programs with that.
Thanks anyway though, I aprreciate it.

I suppose I'll use Freebasic... seeing as how it is way better and everything. :P
I've just been too lazy to switch to FB and my old computer was so crappy that FB wasn't running properly when I tried it.

Getting QB 4.5 to run on my new 'puter.

Hokay, my old pc is toast, I've got my new one now running windows 2000. I download qb 4.5 and I had problems getting that to run, so I opened up the command prompt and made a batch file with the qb library, it runs, but not very well. Also, whenever I exit it, it says invalid COMMAND.COM and i haft...

Was that question to me of Nathan? If me, no. I know NOTHING about over clocking at all so that's out of the question.
