Bug Reports / Netwebget$
« on: 2019-Oct-31 »
For those that might experience this issue in v16

I notice strange block chars appearing in my highscore tables at the start and end of a netwebget$.
It must be unicode issue or something...

Below is my fix for the issue..

Code: (glbasic) [Select]

// cleanup string
LOCAL mstr$
FOR x = 1 TO LEN(scoretable$)
  IF ASC(mstr$)<32 OR ASC(mstr$)>96
      IF mstr$="|" THEN newscore$=newscore$+mstr$

Bug Reports / Enable Mouse Pointer
« on: 2019-Aug-13 »
I get this when I compile:

!!! EnableMouseInPointer() not found in user32.dll. If this is >=Win8, you get no mouse messages.

Is there a simple fix for this?

GLBasic - en / Android - has anyone tried yet?
« on: 2019-Aug-03 »

Just wondering if anyone has tried the android studio update to build 32/64 versions of GLB apps for mobile?

Can't seem to find any docs on it - how to start / steps involved / etc.

Hi Guys

Looking for one that works without needing seedrnd?


Bug Reports / GLB v12.308 and v14.01 SEEDRND
« on: 2019-Jul-29 »
I know I am using an older versions of the GLB at the moment - I need to for my android apps (for now)
But my issue is that SEEDRND seems to be broken on it.

Is that the case or is there a workaround for it?

both version generate completely differently results for a seed.
Is it possible I am placing it in the wrong position in the code - does that factor into it?

Off Topic / Goodreads reviews
« on: 2019-Jul-28 »
Hi Guys,

For anyone that ready any of my books, I am looking for reviews on goodreads - they don't require anything other than reviewers are goodreads members. If you add to the shelf-tag of "Video Games" - that would be a bonus.


GLBasic - en / IDE question
« on: 2019-Jul-05 »
Does anyone know how to disable the 'clean project' icon?
I just clicked on it and undid tons of custom changes for me...

Luckily I had a backup but I want to avoid doing this again...

I have managed remove dy disabling the 'toolbar' panel - but ideally I just want the 'cleanup' icon removed.
