ScriptBasic Games
« on: 18. April 2013, 01:48:43 »
Hello Forum Members,

I don't know if these games qualify as candidates for the Retogamecoding Forum so let me know. The games are written in ScriptBasic using the Simple Window library and the new DLLC (FFI) extension module. If I get approval, I'll post them here.

Of course they do. Just a question: Is it possible to do things like that with ScriptBasic for Linux?
Best regards,

This is a Windows only deal. Even though ScriptBasic runs fine on Linux, (32/64 bit) Simple Window and DLLC are both DLL specific interfaces. IUP has some nice graphics features for Win/X that supply some of the functions SW does but the animation / refresh isn't there.

I'll post the games I converted from OxygenBasic to SB if anyone wants to improve on them. Peter is a good programmer but his interests are just getting it working. That may be fine for a compiler like O2 but using an interpreter requires taking a second look and optimizing his work.
