Re: Hull Breach

Its definitely possible to win, as I tested yesterday extensively, though my brother found it similarly difficult. The key to navigating is like driving a car skidding on ice: steer firmly in the direction you wish to go. But your idea is a good one. A lot of the challenge is figuring out where the ...

Re: Console qustions.

For reference, you can also get it to beep using ncurses. Screen.Beep As for colour, it can be done rather simply. Window.Print("String ", X, Y, Attr.Normal, Pair[Color.Red, Color.Green]) Where the first of the pair is foreground and the second is background. The whole window can be done using the f...

Re: Gambas on top ten programming languages

Lack of cross platform has always been the biggest con yes, though it is certainly true that WSL on Windows 10 is making it rather moot. Otherwise I certainly think it is highly under-rated. The only comparable IDE to me is Lazarus, and it is far less polished.

Re: Did you know?

I agree up to a point Serban, but I do think there are times when shorthand is easier to read. For example, I use Var += 1 instead of Var = Var + 1 because, also being the lazy kind, it takes less time to read and decode. It depends on the context. My biggest beef is code that just doesn't load any ...

What I love here:
The "Project Showcase".
Brilliant idea! We can talk, exchange ideas, find solutions over a project that is already here, a working sample of what might be achieved using Gambas.
Why thank you. :D

I got the idea from the FreeGameDev forums.
