EGSL / Re: can you help me with tiles?
« on: 10. September 2017, 09:56:12 »
It's similar to the bitmapfont function.

Let's assume you have an image with two tiles in it. Now you can load your image with
Code: [Select]
mytile=loadtileset ("image.png",1,2,"ab") or if you already loaded the image
Code: [Select]
mytile=tileset(image,1,2,"ab")
The string is similar to the fontface of a bitmapfont, so if you want to draw the first tile you do the following:
Code: [Select]
drawtile (0, 0, "a", mytile)the second tile
Code: [Select]
drawtile (0, 0, "b", mytile)or a longer line (with both tiles)
Code: [Select]
drawtile (0, 0, "aaabbaabbbbaaaabbaaa", mytile)
It's not very nice as you can see, I recommend it only for background drawing where no tiles are changing because string manipulation is slower than using numbers. (And of course you are limited to a string which means if you are using the alphabet you can handle with upper and lower case 52 tiles.)

That's it! And life is so desperately short...

Life moves pretty fast. If you donít stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.  ;)

Hi Cybermonkey,

Hey! How about you? Anything in the works?
Thanks fine. At the moment I am on vacation in Scotland.
You can expect soon a download of PulsarBASIC ...  ;)

Nice Work.

 There ought to be a way to make 3D games with this stuff. ::)

Hehe, something like ...

So, at last a picture of my (new) desk from IKEA.  ;) One display for the stationary computer and to the right sits my notebook. To the left you can see my new 8 inch converter tablet with Windows 10. Really nice keyboard.
As you can see I am coming back slowly, we had a case of death in my spouse's family (her father), so it took some time to come back to normality.
Anyway, a new project is waiting in the wings ...

EGSL / Re: physics sandbox
« on: 15. March 2017, 18:34:30 »
Sorry, but I used a library called Chipmunk2D, but there are'nt any actual wrappers for Pascal, so far as I know. Be aware that the physics example was not made with Lua but with Pascal-

This was just a proof of concept. Actually there are no physics functions in EGSL or Pulsar2D.

Offtopic / Re: Windows has wiped out my Linux instalation.

Another option is to use an external USB HDD (no stick but a real HDD). You can always install Linux on that without any problems and it is booted rather quickly.

That would be a good solution for a desktop computer. Laptop? I'm not sure...
Ah, ok, it's a laptop? Well, then you are right, that's not so nice using an external HDD. i never did that with my laptop either, only with my desktop PC.

My new desktop. It's not a tablet nor a phone but my good old desktop PC running Android x86 (6.0.1). Everything works fine including sound, wifi, 3D acceleration and a lot of apps.  ;)

How is your experience with using mouse with it?

It is a bit funny, I have to admit but most things work. I use Android x86 predominantly for gaming with a game controller. I bought one which can be used with Windows (Xinput or DirectInput) and Android. (And even PS3 - but I haven't got one.)

I had a similar issue after upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Grub was destroyed and my (logical) Linux partition was deleted. So I always backup my Linux data before installing a bigger Windows update like 1511 or 1607.
