Sorry for confusing any of you, I'm having a tough time explaining this... Lemme give it another shot. I want my DrawScreen routine to go through all images loaded and draw them to the screen at their specified coordinates. Ugh, this is hard for me to explain after this... Rather then having to hard...

Scripting Difficulties

Hokay, here's the situation... I'm loading images to qb via a script command, it makes an image and index array for the image file. The problem I'm having is, when I want to draw the screen, how do I get QB to draw graphics from those arrays without hard-coding it? I don't wanna have to hard-code in...

woops, looks liked I jumped the gun praising nemisis then. Still it's a pretty good put routine. And Plasma, where can I find SuperPut? You have me intrigued. It's been my obsession lately to find a good PUT routine (excluding the ones in libraries). I've even tried making my own but my limited expe...

May I suggest something else to you? If you haven't already, get mouse support, It'll make moving so much easier for the player so rather than making the player hold down arrow keys for a long time to get somewhere, just let the player click, and have the character move to that position on the scree...

hmm... your method will work if the slope of the line from start to dest is 1, but it won't work right any other time. What you need to do is find the slope of the line and have him move accordingly. If the slope is 3/1 then he goes up 3 on the y axis, then over 1 on the x axis. This process is repe...

Okay, I can get an image on screen, the problem is this... Becuase an integer is 2 bytes, I can only show every other pixel in the image. This wouldn't be a problem normally but I've already DEF SEG'd my Virtual Screen. Here's a my Put routine so far... It only handles 20 x 20 sprites right now just...
