Re: The Gambas Intro Music

Yeah, it can be a little startling at times.

Re: OpenGL via library linking

So I got the example to work on my machine, and interestingly I was able to swap between calling library functions (glBegin) and component functions (gb.Begin) from within the same program. This makes me suspect that I can try and implement this only using the library calls where necessary. Next up ...

Re: Hedged

The UI should get a complete overhaul in the finished version with menus and help screens. This was just a mock-up made in less than six days after all. I actually originally intended for the player to click to use the gate but could not get it to work, so walking into it was a compromise for time. ...

Hedged

A 3D horror game inspired by the famous snowy hedge maze from The Shining (and also its homage in the game Blood) made for the April 2021 LibreJam. "Just took a job here at this distant retreat to focus on my programming, but the wife seems to be acting a bit strangely.... better lie low out here." ...

OpenGL via library linking

Hello all, I have been working on a 3D game for the current LibreJam, and while I am managing to keep performance up using the OpenGL 2.x immediate mode supported by the Gambas component (mostly through the use of tight distance culling and fog), I am well aware that using that is no longer best pra...

Re: VisualFBEditor

Did you build MyFBFramework alongside it?

https://github.com/XusinboyBekchanov/MyFbFramework

That needs to be in its own directory within VisualFBDesigner in order for it to load.

I have not had any trouble getting it to build other than getting FreeBASIC itself set up.

Re: VisualFBEditor

So I could not get FreeBASIC to compile anything on Fedora due to an ncurses library issue (might need to build a custom package), but I built this on my girlfriend's Windows 7 install and played around with it. Certainly a lot rougher around the edges than Gambas and not nearly as feature rich, but...

Re: The "Why I use {distro name} Linux" thread

I have simply always used Red Hat/Fedora since switching from Windows 98/XP in 2007 so that is just what I am used to. Never felt the reason to change. Biggest shift was going from GNOME 2.x to Xfce after GNOME 3 came out. I do not hate GNOME Shell or anything, but XFCE just hits the sweet spot for ...
