This thread is for comments, criticism, and coordination for the Easy FreeBASIC series of tutorials. Tell us what you don't like and what you don't understand about them. We will answer you questions and update the tutorials as soon as possible.
The sleep section:
How you make a gam sleep for a day or 2 like a real game (the pause screen doesn't wear off) would you make it 86.4e^7millisecounds.
I don't think I get what you mean there…
Looks good Hartnel. But i would like to warn you here. Dont do too deep FB tutorials. It evolves all the time and tutorials made today might became partly useless tomorrow.
@macjsys09. If you really want to make game to sleep for a day or two, you should work with DATE function with combination of STR$.
Yes, it is great!
I started with C++ (Big mistake, but paid off) at the age of 9.
Now Program in many languages, and consider myself a RIA Developer/Web Developer.
I have recently found that many famous developers started with BASIC, it took me
three hours to find the compiler! Now I use freeBASIC and the not-so-famous 'edit' command
on windows. Hear, hear. I am ashamed to be running windows.. I'm off topic -sighs-
Anyways, I was going through and updating some of the pages with working code,
and now I made a simple game to go with the Random Integer tutorial..
Should it go under 'Source Code' or with the 'Random Integer' tutorial?
How do I post a NEW page in the source code?
Thanks, and this site I think needs some new traffic,
Very ill advertised, a year ago I was looking for a beginner game programming website,
and found this to be exactly what I was looking for. Maybe I would have made a full featured game
by now, but alas, I reverted to Web Developer/RIA Developer.. Although I am still open to learning.
