2D-snippets / Re: Very fast floodfill

Very interesting. Thanks for sharing Qedo.
Dreamerman, I remember your path finding routine and this could definitely improve it.
Lode Vandevenne is a very good programmer especially for retro coding.
QuickCG is so coOol  :P

Very nice code, and may have other usage as well.
I tried to compare it with my basic FloodFill from path finding routines, and Your code is 2 times faster, so I will try to implement this algorithm in path finding in near time. One thing to check would be using full size array and omit DIMPUSH/DIMDEL, it could bring some minor speed improvement but I'm not sure, it's very good in current state.
And in general the algorithm it self is more that 4-5 times faster, just that Sprite2Mem & FastMem2Sprite take some additional time, but even with them it's really fast, and could be used for some special effects in retro project.
Btw. I remember that has also great articles about raycasting :)

Hi everyone,
speed is certainly an important factor in games and I think it will be of interest to an improved and faster version of the "fastfloodfill" project posted at therad msg78051.
The complete project that I enclose "FillFastLine" is at least 4-5 times faster on my computer going from 50 fps to 220.
is a GLB version obtained from the site
I hope you enjoy it and look forward to any comments and improvements in the case.
Bug Reports / Re: win32-dll win64-dll ld error

Any more specific info? Latest Steam version, demo or some older version?
Did that happen in standard IDE, or You tried to build app manually with command line/bat files, as in platform.ini for Win32 target those libraries are properly typed in link stage -> -lGLBasicWin32 -lCxImageWin32,
and such issue shouldn't appear. Can't say anything more as never encountered such problem without messing with custom compile/link gcc commands.

-lGLBasic -lpng not found
replace with -lGLBasicWin32 -lCxImageWin32
