So I should give an update.

My text adventure is great, code-wise; but I couldn't decide on a scenario. I started with some guy on the shore, and kept building scenarios as I built the game, but eh, after a while I got bored with it. Maybe I'll start over -- not completely; the code-base is good -- just need an idea for a fun scenario.

Thanks! The third game has always been on my to-do list since the last one. I can't make any promises though. If I get around to it, I probably won't make any announcements until the beta stage; I've attempted it a number of times and none of those incarnations made it to the finish. But I will keep trying. :)

Ok. I'm making good progress on my text adventure. I should have something ready to show really soon.

Game Dev / Larry the Dinosaur 2: Nine Years Later
« on: October 31, 2011, 04:00:15 PM »
It was Halloween evening, October 31st, 2002. A game I had been working on since the summer was almost finished. I wanted to released on this day, for some odd reason. Honestly, it still needed a ton of work; it had many bugs, and it had some poor design issues that needed to be addressed. But at the time, my programming skills weren't too great and I had enough of the project. I played through the game several times that night, fixing up what I could, and then I submitted it to various sites. The game was Larry the Dinosaur 2.

If you have the Freebasic path in your environment settings then you shouldn't need to set anything in the build options. My settings are the same as yours but with the working directory empty. I get an error when I try to put the path in there too.

Try leaving the working directory empty and prepend the path to the command, something like this: C:\Program Files (x86)\FreeBASIC\fbc -w all "%f"

In both cases I didn't have to do anything. Make sure you press F8 to compile first and then F5 to run.

Maybe you need fbc in your environment path? That's how Freebasic is set up for me.

Are you on Windows or Linux?

This is now my favorite IDE for everything. And it supports Freebasic!

Why haven't I realized this before? It's simple really. It's just like any other game but everything is represented through text. Once you think of it like that and not as something else entirely, it becomes much more feasible.

It's a 70-minute in-depth review of Episode I. Never a dull moment.

Instead of using a sleep statement, try this: http://deltacode.blogspot.com/2009/07/delay-factor.html

When you have that working, all you need is a fps variable that increments by one in your game loop and have it reset to zero every second using an on-timer function.
