Here is a little game to help pass the time on a wet summer’s day. No scores, penalties or time limits, it might even clear your head if you are bogged down with your coding. If there are no major problems reported I’ll post it in the showroom.

Bug Reports / Showroom problem?
« on: 2012-Feb-05 »
I'm getting this at the top of the showroom page:

Warning: strtotime() [function.strtotime]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'Europe/Berlin' for 'CET/1.0/no DST' instead in /var/kunden/webs/glbasicabc/glbasic/main.php on line 30

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /var/kunden/webs/glbasicabc/glbasic/main.php:30) in /var/kunden/webs/glbasicabc/glbasic/main.php on line 31

Deprecated: Function split() is deprecated in /var/kunden/webs/glbasicabc/glbasic/main.php on line 237

Also get this on tring to access any of the files there:

Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: SAFE MODE Restriction in effect. The script whose uid is 33 is not allowed to access /tmp owned by uid 0 in /var/kunden/webs/glbasicabc/glbasic/showroom.php on line 9

Fatal error: session_start() [<a href='function.session-start'>function.session-start</a>]: Failed to initialize storage module: files (path: ) in /var/kunden/webs/glbasicabc/glbasic/showroom.php on line 9

Beta Tests / my second offering
« on: 2012-Jan-15 »
This is the second game from my ongoing attempt at rewriting and updating my old Amiga offerings. For the moment this is PC only and game play should be easy enough to pick up with the exception that a click of the right mouse button will rotate a piece once you have ‘lifted’ it.

Download (4.3 MB) from Google docs:

History of the game, instructions and more info etc. From my website:

I was initially getting the warning to set the JAVA_HOME environmental variable, but since setting this I now get this report when compiling to android:

*** Configuration: ANDROID ***
GPC - GLBasic Precompiler V.10.104 SN:60343307 - 3D, NET
Wordcount:3 commands
running Android build-script...
BUILD STAGE 1: Compile and pack
The system cannot find the path specified.
BUILD STAGE 2: Install on device
The system cannot find the path specified.
finished Android build-script.

Things I have tried from reading other forum posts:

Have deleted and re-loaded Java (jdk1.7.0_01) to root of C: (No spaces in path)
Have set JAVA_HOME variable and tested from command prompt that everything is ok.
Have created a “hello world” test program in GLB in the root of C:. (No spaces in path)
Program name is “TEST”, Company name also set to “Test”. (No spaces anywhere)
Have removed my device and set up a virtual drive for the emulator all of which works fine.

I’m running Windows 7 (32bit.), so which path can the system not find? Can anyone help please?

GLBasic - en / Kerning problem
« on: 2011-Nov-23 »
I’m probably doing something stupid, but any fonts I now create using the font creator don’t work with kerning. If I replace the font with one I have created a few weeks ago it works!!! This only appears to have started since updating to 10.179 but this perhaps is a red herring and I am assuming for the moment that it is me doing something wrong. If possible could someone please test the attached .png file to see if kerning works?

Beta Tests / Request for game test (PC)
« on: 2011-Oct-19 »
Because of work commitments I had not done any serious programming since 1995, but since retiring earlier this year I am now spending my spare time polishing up my rusty programming skills using GLBasic. As an old fan of the Amiga, I thought it might be a good idea to re-write and update some of my old games that went down well in the old days.

I now have 3 of them complete and my request is for someone to test the first one before I pace it in the announcements and showcase sections, I also hope to get a personal website up and running with this as a free featured game.

The game is for PC only and can be downloaded directly from the Google docs link or follow the link to my (first attempt, work in progress) website if you want some info on the history of the game.

GLBasic - en / string manipulation question
« on: 2010-Nov-07 »
x=mid$(source$,start,length) returns a part of the source$.

is there an easy way to replace 1 letter in a string. (replace$ replaces all occurrences)

ie. the equivalent of:         mid$(dest$,start,1)="x"
