Can the editor display code with custom Line Height? e.g. 1.5 or so..
Just the standard is a little hard on my eyes and would like to be able to alter it?
Due to Google deadline for updates : End of August (with option to extend to 1 Nov)
(for older apps to be visible to newer devices - and for older apps remain eligible to update going forward)

Currently, I need to look into getting my apps all updated on weekends after work.
It has been a while, but already had some luck with getting an app without dependency on gms and ads to work and run on my phone and Android 12 & 13

See below a test with the very useful Browserstacks app testing platform...

So far so good!

I am still on older version of Android Studio and gradle model (5.4.1) and build
classpath ''

I will look into the whole new Android Studio setup after this and when my new Windows 11 Laptop arrives...

Hi Guys,
Just wondering if anyone has the steam deck?
And if they could try Zen Blocks on it for :)
I have steam keys

I have a past working project - created maps and positioned items using array values to determine they were beside each other etc.

Now the project is showing the items with gaps and other issues...

Were there any changes to variables etc.?
Also a clue, I used a lot of INTEGER() command - could that have issues?


Example of how i am using integer...

Code (glbasic) Select
startwater_top% = INTEGER(1+(INTEGER(RND(2)+3) * 16))
startwater_left% = 1+(INTEGER(RND(4)+1) * 16)
startwater_right% = ((resx/2)+1) + (INTEGER(RND(20))*16)

Code (glbasic) Select
ccx = INTEGER(cs.ca_x)
My Windows game in windowed-mode is playing music from taskbar and is not showing after sleeping the laptop and resuming or leaving for a long period...

Is there an easy fix for this? Maybe a setting i am missing?

Task Manager - bring to front doesnt work either
App is playing music which i can hear unless I shut down app fully..
Keeps popping up message to setup build for Win32.
Build option is greyed out in proj settings section.
Hi All,

Been a while - I need to get back into my coding...
I am looking for a way to SAVE a TYPEs with all the entities etc.

Is there a handy way to do this or do I have to custom save for each specific TYPE, etc.


So a method to iterate through the TYPE and save in format and load back?

I expect someone else might have cracked this before?

Any ideas?

I had a few rejected submissions from the Galaxy Store for issue with app restarting / closing when switching between light and dark mode

This seems to resolve the issue

adding uimode to configchanges in manifest file
under SDLGLbasic activity section

   <activity android:name="SDLGlbasic"


For anyone else who is adding Android apps to the Galaxy Store

Hi All,
Does anyone know if the new HTML build mobule affects the GLB system for other platforms - will it break my Android builds or anything?

Could a separate purchase of GLB with HTML (for side-loading) be possible?

Just tried a new build for android for an older app that built before on the older setups...

Got this error among others for the gzwrite commands?

C:\Users\Lenovo\Documents\GL_PROJECTS\GLBasic\Space2D\distribute\android_studio\app\jni\zlib\gzwrite.c:89:20: warning: implicit declaration of function 'write' is invalid in C99 [-Wimplicit-function-declaration]

Any idea if an update caused this?
Hi All,
It's been a while and Im looking to improve one of my apps.
I am hoping fix a bug that involves creating a nested loop relationship and I'm stuck on this problem...

Commands should run from top to bottom and loops within loops should complete before moving on other solo commands and additional loops further down.

Code (glbasic) Select
Loop 1
  command 1
  Loop 2 (1st nest)
    command 2
    command 3
[b] command 4[/b]
  Loop 3
     command 5
     command 6
[b] command 6[/b]

My problem is that command 4 and command 6 are linked to the last group that was closed off - I can fix them recursively but I am thinking I might be making it more complex than it needs to be.
Has anyone come across or solved this type of issue?
i know similar json parsing rules might be a place to look too?

I currently track groupid which increments and groupno (which is supposed to catch groups at the same level (within a parent group))

Here is a screenshot of the Android error...
I have DDGUI in this project - it worked before, but maybe that is a cause?

Ignore for now - I think it is DDGUI - i need to convert the javacall function...
Is there a way to grey out the windows close button or circumvent it?
Made a copy of a project and renames folder
But when compiling older project.

Project 1

Project 1 (Copy)

When I compile from Project 1 it is compiling to distribute folder of Project 1 (Copy)

Any ideas why?

Project just hangs...

But when in Debug mode it runs fine....

Only messages I get are...
Start debug session.

Hey Guys

My Turtle Logo program (created with GLBASIC) has been downloaded over 60,000 times by people in mostly india / asia

also some youtube videos for ICT classes :)

did anyone have success saving and finding files on android lately?
I cannot seem to get the app to save into Media folder or elsewhere?
Been a while since I used my GLB Android compile - must have been updated since.
I tried with a clean start - removing my older Android Studio folder from the app...

However, I got a Project build error with new the build

It seems to your  template for "Catch Out" is used for the manifest but the build is getting only as far as creating the file and none of the the others

Any ideas why this is happening?

Strange that only the file is being created in the project.???
