Reading Binaries int8, int32 etc.

Er..int16 not int8 Trying to extract data from Tim Phillip's Realmz. How should I go about doing this? This is the sequence of data in Data BD file, other files have other ranges. The Mac OS Classic resources are a whole other beast to tackle. 169 is the number of entries. I assume I read then as po...

Re: Livecode Community Won't Open on Windows 7

Oh ok I think I found something. C:/Users/User/MyDocuments/My Livecode/Externals When I have the iGame3D Pro External.dll in that folder but not in the Livecode application or Externals folder then the program doesn't launch. I just launched Version 7 without any additional externals installed once ...

Re: 8-bit ASCII retro game tool

Trying to figure out Z-80 machine code was no go but Oshonsoft's z80 simulator was an hour and a half of tutorial fun. Weird fun, like finding a rotary telephone a calling the printer port. ha . It's got a BASIC compiler, an Assembler, It even wrote a file the Aquarius loaded and went into ?SN Error...

Re: 8-bit ASCII retro game tool

I want to get this tool up as an example of game making tools on LiveCodeGameDev but in short efficient posts of working stacks and code, and of course it should be useful to more people than the handful that know what an Aquarius computer is. Oh you want to try the Aquarius computer for yourself wi...

Re: 8-bit ASCII retro game tool

Ouch 20 views, and I don't even have screenshots up yet. Well here's screenshots plus the 3 alpha level stacks attached. Currently I'm using a grid of Graphics controls in the character editor and that works ok in an 8x8 grid. Then I experimented with the drawing program which selects actual text in...

8-bit ASCII retro game tool

I'm making a little drawing and layout tool for an old 8-bit computer system. It's coming along pretty good in pieces, but I feel like I'm bungling about a bit, so I thought I'd post around and see if some suggestions come my way on how to make things better before I get too deep. Ok a quick explana...

Re: Game design required

Keep it simple. It only has to work and be fun for a few seconds. Try 3 card monty. 3 cards. Player chooses one, it flips and reveals the card face. It flips again then the cards move around and shuffle. Then the game asks to guess which card is the previous card and the player gets to guess. You ca...

Look for " /Resources/Examples/" inside the Revolution folder. Full path might look something like : "/Applications/Revolution Studio/2.7.4/Resources/Examples/" That will change depending on license and version. The files I'm seeing at the moment are: Deep Mask Sampler.rev U3 Documentation.pdf Zip B...

Re: Another 3D Possibility using the irrlicht engine?

It's my first external and indeed my first posting and I realize I have no business being in this section of the forum. so be gentle! Kudos to you, you have every right to stand up and be noticed. The so called Uber-Masters and the company itself don't seem too interested in bringing 3D to rev at a...
