OUTSTANDING BREAKTHROUGH!
« on: 2018-Apr-01 »
Yes! I just now managed to port GLBasic to the Gamebuino Meta prototype I have here. :enc:
I had to dump sdl2 entirely and use a self made library to make the commands work like the other platforms.

I will upload it soon!

Congrats Erico, removing SDL2 must have been a tough job! Good news for the Gamebuino too!  :good:
Cheers,

Ian.

Damn, I hate when Easter falls on April 1st - leaves us distracted and vulnerable!   :-[
Good one!  And I just received my Gamebuino. I thought I had to dust off my copy of GLBasic.

...

It was my hope/strategy! :D

But on a serious side, it would be nice to have a powerful basic running on that handheld.
The current C it takes I just don´t have time to invest in learning.

Maybe something that reads GLBasic code and converts to C equivalent using their easy library. Maybe just to cover the basic commands and some 2d stuff.
It is probably a huge effort anyways and I would have no idea where to start.

edit: I have to add my apologies to the ones that felt for it, sorry for the joke, I hope you excuse me. But I guess this was about my 8th attempt at least! ;)
