Any good books, lately?

30th March 2012

George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" (5 book series).
Excellent writing, awesome character development, and stuff to make you empathize with characters.
All in all a great read.

Forget about the Oslo blast. A matter/anti-matter explosion is the principle behind atomic and hydrogen bombs. Think megaton yields.

Nice fading effect

1st July 2011

You could also do something like this.
[code]Graphics 640,480,32,2
SetBuffer BackBuffer()
inc# = .05 ; there are 20 steps of 0.05 between 0.0 and 1.0
fadeRate% = 50 ; update alpha value every 'fadeRate' milliseconds
While MouseHit(1)=0

Image rotation?

1st December 2010

A quick and dirty way to fill in the gaps is to plot a 2x2 rect instead of a single pixel.
The drawback is that your image may be slightly distorted due to the way the rects overlap.

backuping up loads of files to dvd...??

6th July 2010

I bought a Kingston 'DataTraveler 200' 128GB USB drive for $42 - 3 weeks a ago. I looked for the same drive today, and the lowest price is $275, so I won't recommend you spend that much. However you can get a 32GB USB drive for $49 here...

Level storage?

1st July 2010

@Mog: Yeah, in the good ol' days (c64 era) everything was stored in nybbles and bytes. The worst part was that if you didn't write some type of editor, you had to do the binary translating yourself.

Level storage?

1st July 2010

Why not store your values (0-15) as eight 4-bit values per unsigned long?
To encode or decode would be rather trivial using the "<<", ">>", "&" operators in C, and would reduce storage requirements to only 12.5% of original.

Building a PC

I used to custom build all of my PC's until I recieved a bad motherboard. Then all of the separate vendors started pointing fingers at the 'other guys' product. A real nightmare.

Palettes and Bitmap Fonts

26th October 2008

[quote]My question is, can Blitz Basic 2D apply palettes to images, or specifically in my case, Bitmapped Fonts?

Yes, and you can do it as fast as displaying two images to the screeen or a buffer.
