GLBasic - en / Re: array use?
« on: 2012-Jun-08 »
Well I found i bit of Basic code to do what I want but I can't seem to get it to work. Here is what I have. Any ideas?

Code: GLBasic [Select]
GLOBAL BlockColor[];DIM BlockColor[7][3]//rgb colors(1-3) for each of the seven pieces

FOR iter = 0 TO 6 //loop through seven pieces
        READ BlockColor[iter][0]//read red amount
        READ BlockColor[iter][1]//read green amount
        READ BlockColor[iter][2]//read blue amount
NEXT
       
DATA 255,255,0//yellow square
DATA 0,128,255//turquoise line
DATA 0,0,255//blue left L
DATA 255,128,0//orange right L
DATA 255,0,0//red left S
DATA 0,255,0//green right S
DATA 128,0,255//purple T

OK. Another question if you don't mind. I have obrick[4][4] I plan to fill it like...
0000
0110
0110
0000

Is their a faster way to do that than using:
obrick[0][0]=0
obrick[0][1]=0
...

Thanks for the help.

GLBasic - en / array use?
« on: 2012-Jun-07 »
For my falling blocks game I figure I can store the block locations for my seven shapes in a 4x4 array. Do I need to make an array for all seven or is their a more efficient way to store the data?

Nice articles Slydog. I think I will take it's advice and build some simple games to get the process down. I will start with a tetris clone.  :)

I will start small for now. I am working with sprite strips for now and will go from their.

Good idea. Guess I will start with the over world tile map. Seems like mappy is the tool to use around here. I am gonna grab the wrapper and see what I can make of it.

GLBasic - en / New to programming, what next?
« on: 2012-Jun-04 »
Hello. I am new to programming and really enjoying GLB. I have finished the help file tutorials and now considering what to read next. My ultimate goal is to make a new strategy rpg that plays like shining force 2. If you can recommend any tutorials or reading to get closer to that goal I would appreciate it.

Wow, lots of replys. Thanks.
@erico That local was exactly the problem I was looking for! Everything works fine now.

@Slydog I will look at those changes and see what I can learn. Thank you.

I am talking about the Pong that I built with the written tutorial not the pre-built samples. It does not start.

I have worked through the Pong tutorial and the ball won't move. I can't seem to find what is wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

That is awesome. How does it look with character sprites on it? That would make for a great shining force game.

@cruelcynic, It can be more then a hobbyist tool, some skilled coders here make a living with it. As for learning it, it depends if you actually want to, but first time users have always managed to impress on what they can pull out after a few hours on it. :good:
I put some time in today and got the onemore tutorial game built. I wish the tutorial included defining the variables, but I figured it out and the game worked like a charm. Hell of a neat program.  :good:
