GLBasic - en / speeding up mathematical operations?
« on: Today at 01:01 AM »
Hey everyone.

I´m working on a Binary puzzlegame and the puzzles are generated. Generating a puzzle at a playfield of 6x6 squares takes only 1-2 seconds or less.
But when I generate at 8x8 squares, It takes 20-30 seconds, which is a nogo  :'(

So I´m asking if there is generally a way to speedup mathematical operations.
Are there any tricks, or slow commands I should stay away from?
Should I use more integer variables to speed it up ?
Should I use repeat/until instead of while/wend?
Is there someting faster than mod command maybe?
Anything else I should be aware of?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Ich würde gerne in meinen GLBasic programmen ein paar videos in Vollbild abspielen. Wichtig dabei ist, daß die videos überall abgespielt werden können, egal welche codecs der user installiert hat. Ausserdem sollte es auch auf android laufen.

Ich habe einige test gemacht, aber wenn überhaupt, laufen die videos nur im Window mode. Im Vollbild mode seh ich nix, hör nur den sound vom video-

Fürs Video editing nehm ich normalerweise DaVinci Resolve. Kann mir jemand n Tip geben welchen Format und welcher Codec sich hier eignen?

meine glbasic version: GLBasic IDE, Version: 10.283

Hey everyone,

I´m considering to buy the html5 compiler on steam in order to make my games able to be played in a browser.

However, in the description is written that it is only working with the glbasic version ON Steam.

 I don´t have the Steam version of Gl Basic. I bought GlBasic years ago before it was available on steam.

So my question is, does the html5 compiler works also with old glbasic versions or only with Steam Versions?

If you want to test it, I would love to recieve some feeback. :booze:

Media Section / Crownjewels first Demovideo
« on: 2022-Jan-29 »
Hey everyone. A few days ago I found all this half-finished Gameprojects I started between 2011-2015, and decided to continue working on them. Here a first video of one of the Games called "Crownjewels". It´s around 90% finished now, and I hope to release the game in the next few weeks/months (no hurry).

Hope you will like it, Feedback is very welcome.


A few days ago I have finished the first version of my very first glbasic app called "Flarebrush".

However, I have accidently uploaded the apk without signing it. While waiting for googleplay to check the files, i found out here in the forum that i have to sign an app before uploading.

But now it seems, surprise...  that googleplay has accepted the app.

The only problem now seems to be the "com.redpixelgames" in the link.  Can I just open the apk, change the text and upload again?

Or is uploading an app without signing somehow a problem? Please let me know what you think.



I´m working on a couple of games for android. At the moment, all games are running in the native devices resolution. For example: on my samsung galaxy ace the games run at 320x480, on my archos g9 tablet the games run at 1280x800.

So far so good, I had a few speed problems, but I thought I can handle it.

But now I have buyed a Sony xperia T today, with dualcore and 1280x720 display. I was hoping that my games will now run faster, because my other 2 devices are really slow and old.

But on the sony xperia everything is terrible slow, and I have the feeling this is because of the higher resolution.

So I´m thinking now about to use a minimum resolution of 320x240 or something similar and force the device to use this resolution or stretch it so it can be fullscreen.

However, I really have no idea how to do that.

Please let me know if you know a solution or if you have a hint for me

Beta Tests / Flarebrush beta (android)
« on: 2012-Aug-04 »

Flarebrush is a simple paintprogram for android, maybe interesting for kids or preteenagers, or people who like flares and glowing brushes. You can choose between 16 brushes in 7 colors (8. color comes later), change brushsize, use colorcycling, x or xy mirror, load, save and play your drawings.
Flarebrush is working on tablets and smartphones with a min. resolution of 400 pixel vertical. But its better working with tablets or big smartphones with pen.

This version is almost ready, but there are still a couple of things to do. The 8. color is missing at the moment, also you cant use a few buttons in the main menue.

Please feel free to let me know what you think, if you have critics, ideas or suggestions. Every critic is welcome.

here the link:

btw... Does someone know, how I can save images with glbasic on an android device, so everyone can later find them and open? At the moment you can only save and load inside the program, but I cannot find the files in my filebrowser.

GLBasic - en / live wallpaper
« on: 2012-Jun-12 »

Is it possible to create live wallpapers for android with glbasic?

If so, is there a tutorial or a link explaining this?


I´m currently trying to use FORCEFEEDBACK to make my android smartphone (Samsung Galaxy ACE) vibrate.

I tried FORCEFEEDBACK 0, 100, -1, 1 as well as FORCEFEEDBACK 1, 100, 1, -1 and some other combinations, but it seems to have no effect.

Can anyone confirm this or tell me how to make it work?


I searched for this in the forums, but was not able to find anything.

Is it possible to use the android sensors (compass, display rotation ect.) with glbasic?
Is multitouch possible with glbasic and android?

Are there tutorials or examples for this?

GLBasic - en / a few android questions
« on: 2011-Nov-12 »

I´m working on a couple of small Games for android devices. It´s almost working great but I have a few questions at this moment:

1. On my archos g9 101 It seems that the volume buttons are blocked. Is there a way to unblock them?
2. I tried to use mp3 and ogg files on android, but both dont work. I readed that it is possible to use ogg, but how?
3. When I use limitfps, my android device is sometimes ignoring it, is there another method to limit fps precisely?
4. When using a scrolling background, I sometimes have small buckers. Are there a few tricks maybe to force soft scrolling?

btw.. you can test my actual game here (for android tablets):

Hello all,

I just have finished the first "demolevel" of my veryfirst Glbasic game for android. The game should work on tablets as well as on smartphones.

Please test it and feel free to let me know what you think.

On my tablet, It takes 20-30 seconds when starting the game the first time. But it should run. After starting it once, It will start much faster next time...

here the download link:

GLBasic - de / android compile problem
« on: 2011-Oct-21 »

Ich hab da ein kleines Problem mit dem kompilieren für android.

Ich habe zwar sowohl jdk 32bit als auch android sdk installiert, und auch den Pfad von Java bei den Umgebungsvariablen gesetzt, aber trotzdem bekomme ich beim kompilieren folgende Fehlermeldungen:

Hab ich irgendwas vergessen oder falsch gemacht? Ich kann bei meinen User-variablen kein "Path" finden, und wenn ich es selber erstelle, funzt es auch nicht so richtig, kann mir da jemand einen Tip geben?

GLBasic - de / Ein paar "Anfängerfragen"
« on: 2011-Oct-06 »

ich hab Glbasic erst vor ca. 2 Wochen entdeckt und bin soweit von der Demo version recht angetan. Hab vorher ein paar Jahre lang mit Blitz3d gearbeitet, wollte jetzt aber evtl. ein paar 2d Sachen für Android machen und bin so auf glbasic gestoßen.

Bin jetzt drauf und dran mir glbasic zu kaufen, hab aber noch ein paar kleine Fragen/Probleme.

1. Als erstes Project hab ich einen kleinen Shooter gebastelt, wo man mit einem kleinen Raumschiff von unten nach oben fliegt und entgegenkommende Meteoriten und Raumschiffe abschiessen muss. Das funktionierte auch ganz gut, stürzte aber manchmal ab. Als ich dann noch mehr Objekte zum einsammeln einbaute häuften sich die Abstürze und mitlerweile denke ich daß es an dem ANIMCOLL Befehl liegen muss.

Beispiel: IF ANIMCOLL (200, mframe, meteorx, meteory, 4, 0, x, 600)

...stürzt ständig ab. Kann mir jemand da einen Tip geben, oder ist es ein Bug?

2. Gibt es einen Cruncher für GLbasic?

3. Könnt Ihr ein günstiges Tablet empfehlen auf denen Glbasic Programme gut laufen bzw. leicht/unproblematisch zu kompilieren sind?

vielen Dank im Vorraus.
