QB Express #26 Deadline: November 24th

The original deadline for QB Express #26 was November 15th, but seeing as we've received NO SUBMISSIONS WHATSOEVER, I've decided to extend it to November 24th.

Yeah, we've got nothing. This is bad. We've never been in a worse situation for an issue yet....we haven't even received a measly letter to the editor or news brief.

Is this the death nell for QB Express? I've always said that we will continue publishing episodes as long as people submit enough content to make it worthwhile. Save QB Express! The only way that there can be a next issue is if you send stuff in!

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: November 24th (that's two days after Thanksgiving, for all you Americans)

Tutorials, articles, editorials, game reviews, comics, letters to the editor, news briefs...we need it all. Email your stuff to:

Cant send more than a letter but its something. Goin to release next issue of PCopy! and update ascii-world first tho so it might take few days but there is time.

How about a tutorial on functions? Simple, I know, but most tutorials I see focus on Subroutines, not Functions. And maybe include local vars.

Mentat, i think it is a good idea.

O agree with EK mentat. and you're right to, functions can be tricky yet very useful. I can't wait to read it.

I'm working on a 3d Game of Life simulator, which I'm turning into an FPS-style puzzle game.

Edit: BTW, I'm totally not dead or missing.

Sounds like a radically cool idea xerol. I looked at the youtube video on your site and that looks awesoome.

Awesome, Xerol! I'll definitely put in a mention about your game in the next issue.

I'm cruisin'. There's a lot to write about functions themselves. Now I need to figure out how to implement function my tutorial of course. I already knew how to overload. :P

3 pages going onto four. And I'm not even done. :)

I should probably have another update on the game before the weekend, so just keep in mind this probably isn't the final format.

I've submitted two tutorials, one on the worms-like engine and one, a bit useless, about writing tutorials. :roll:
Anyway, I'm still bizzy with a BIG tutorial about special effects. It's about every special effect that I know: particles, fire, water, clouds using prelin noise but also polygon stuff like environment mapping etc. It's really gonna be cool but it's still a lot of work to finish it.

I actually use just fragments of code in my tutorials, that are made for qb but can also be used in fb.

I used to make dual-compatibility, but now I'm leaning to FB. My next tutorial is exclusively FB. Anybody who can tweek my code enough to make it QB compatible would already know what I'm talking about.

Well, the due date is today, and we are short on material, so I think it's okay.
