I was building 'Noid HD' and I get error building cause it seems that import command now is a 'Premium' command :S.
I am using this command from long time ago (is the command I use for OpenFeint support).

Is this a mistake of the new release or this is the new command category?

Thanks in advance.

I am trying to integrate a GLBasic iPhone App with a XCode UI App.
The objective is to 'launch' an iPhone GLBasic App from an UI XCode Project.

What I have done:

- I create a simple GLBasic Application and compile for iPhone (simple helloworld text on screen).
- I tested (standalone) on iPhone and works.

- I create a simple ui application (a button with text 'launch glbasic app').
- I copy all libraries from GLBasic project to UI project.
- I add other linker flags, etc to get 2 projects exactly the same.

- I add the following code to UI project when press button. (I have defined the two methods and tested that nil arguments works).

-(IBAction) launchGLBasic:(id) sender {
   GLB_iPhone_call_main(nil, nil);

- Applications UI runs pretty well, but when i press the button, application hang up for a second and then crash.

Any clue, I have missed something?

Any help will be appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

GLBasic - en / MultiTouch
Hi There,

I am currently working on Exodus HD for iPad, which we will include MultiTouch (for multiplayer).

So I have been 'playing' with 'multi mouse'.

First of all, i have been surprised that iPad has only 5 multi mouse controls (which means only 5 ships can be managed at the same time).

The real problem here, is when you touch iPad with finger number six, cause all 5 multi mouse coordinates, seems to be reset to the six one!

From my point of view, rest of touch after 5, must not do anything, nor reset rest of coordinates!!

Anyone have any workaround for this?

GLBasic - en / Piracy
Hi there!

We have detected that Exodus has just been cracked, and in our servers 8 each 10 users are using a cracked version of it (We get results for matching 'new users' and sales).

We are really worried about; although there is a lot of theories about piracy means (some waves thinks that piracy is a type of publicity meanwhile others thinks that piracy is a lose of money).
Although we are in the middle of the 2 waves, we really want to get the control of it, (we would like to know how much people on our server are playing with cracked version, so we can choose between left continues playing or close applications).

Some time ago, i read some kind of method that will be implemmented in order to get the control of that, i wonder if this methods finally have been done.

We wonder too, the general feels of the forums, regading piracy and if you have done something to control it.

Hi there,

I have some problems when using gradients on iPhone. On emulator all looks great, but when i build to iPhone i get somewhat gradient effect like using low bit depth.
If i move the image to iPhone directly, i can see the gradient effect perfectly clear.
I dunno if it normal (if iPhone get low bit depth when gaming), or if it is anything related to GLBasic.

Anyone has experimented some similar?

Hi there,

I wonder is there is a way to drawsprite by his center, i mean any way to change the 'hot spot' of the sprite.
I know I can use offsets to draw the sprite where must be, but I wonder is there is any method to change this.

In the other hand i wonder is there is any way to change the thickness of drawline (I would like to draw lines more thickness).

Thanks in advance,

Kig Regards, fjsantos.

Hi there,

While testing my last iPhone App, I have found that sounds stop working when iPhone comes from stand by mode.
Music stop playing and sounds stop working (commands like playsound doesn't work anymore untill you restart your app).

Anyone have detected the same problem?

King Regards, fjsantos.

Update1: I could reproduce the bug, its seems it depends on how much time the iPhone is on stand by mode (about 1 or 2 minuts and the when awake, the music off).

Update2: I get some herratic behaviour when I awake from stand by mode, some of them reset the App.
GLBasic - en / iPad Support?
Hi There,

I just updated my XCode sdk to version 3.2 which have support to new Apple devices named iPad.
As devices seems to share same OS that iPhone and iPod Touch, i suppose that could be easy give support to this new device.
I wonder if there is any planning for supporting that device? (Maybe only add a new resolution to 1024 x 768?).

Hi There,

After get my account with microsoft to develop to windows mobile, i started some testing.
I compiled 'Noid' project to windows mobile (wm 6.1, device acer f900). When i try to start the app, the application simply doesn't start. I dont know if i am doing something wrong or if there is any problem with glbasic working on windows.

Anyone have same problem?

King Regards, fjsantos.
Hi There,

Now that AppInPurchase can be used on free applications to convert to full version (at least!), 'lite' version is not more needed, so i wonder if glbasic will implement some methods which can manage this api.

Thanks in advance!
