Bitmap help =)

Post by Raspberrypicker » Tue Sep 04, 2007 4:36 pm

Honestly I've been trying to get this bitmap to work for like four days, and it's the only problem I'm running into...and I can't let myself work on something else until I get this under control. I've tried everything, and I even went back to the turtorial, but still no luck. :cry:

I need to write the word Chemistry on my menu screen. I am using a bitmap. The point of me making this program was so that I could study for my test (good idea, right?) but it's taking longer than expected and the test is tomorrow, lol. Well at least I kno the stuff by now :)

Plz help if you can...and check out the rest of the program, about half of it works so far. When I get this bitmap problem done, I will finish.

Code: Select all

CLS
FOR y = 1 TO 7
FOR x = 1 TO 50
READ title1
NEXT
NEXT 
should be

Code: Select all

CLS
FOR y = 1 TO 7
FOR x = 1 TO 72 'must be 72 cause thats how long the data is
READ title1
NEXT
NEXT 
it doesn't jump to the next line when you change y, it just goes to the next piece of data.

Well you need to fix a couple of other things

Code: Select all

FOR y = 1 TO 7
FOR x = 1 TO 72
READ title1
NEXT
NEXT
should be, (notice the (x,y) very important)

Code: Select all

FOR y = 1 TO 7
FOR x = 1 TO 72
READ title1(x,y)
NEXT
NEXT
Dim title1(50,7) needs to be Dim title1(72,7)

Also don't forget to change the for x = 1 to 50 to 72 in the part where it draws title1

I think that is all I had to change.

DOn't judge a post by it's title ;-).

This one was genuine. He/She showed he worked on it, had code, everything. Hence as a mod, I saw no reason to remove it.

I didn't want to remove it, I just find it annoying that the title doesn't really specify what kind of help he needed. The title OMG OMG I R NUBZ HALP !!!!11 isn't really constructive.

we have 2, what seems to be the problem?

i thought it was rather funny.... :)

really if you look back through the last 50 topics in each forum
this is really the only one witha non-specifc title....

has there been a plauge of non-specific titles we've mised?
