Re: ptnio - Portable TCP Network IO

Took me a year and a half to get around to it, but I finally tried it and it works as advertised as far as I can tell. Good job! :!:

See viewtopic.php?t=7321 for where it was used.

Thanks!

Re: Blockout (3d Tetris) !

Archive update : 2 player support over network! Having this thread pop up reminded me that there was still one thing I wanted to try out: a 2 player game over network. I remembered this thread: https://www.dostips.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8736 by TSnake41, got ptnio.exe and pretty much copied the ...

Re: [GAME] Asteroid Destroyer

Not too bad. I'm just going to point out that using cmdgfx_RGB (in server mode), you could fairly easily have this game: 1. without flickering 2. without the need for legacy console 3. with bitmap transparency (i.e no black background for e.g. crosses overwriting other bitmaps) 4. play at a high, co...

Re: Wacom tablet pressure input for cmd

Archive update! Had no luck at the Wacom forum, but eventually when I looked at some more Wacom code samples I found out how to get the pressure range. The value after LEFT is now scaled to always lie within 0-32767, which means it should work for all Wacom tablets without tweaking. Also removed a ...

Re: CmdBkg - use bitmap as background to console window

Archive update to version 1.1 By chance I noticed that CmdBkg left visible borders around the window in full-screen mode (Alt-Enter). I decided to fix that, as well as a few other issues. Changes in v1.1: 1. Should look correct in fullscreen mode (only tested for Win10) 2. No longer blocks if start...

Re: CmdRunner - 3d game (CubeRunner clone)

Archive update! Decided to go "full circle" with this, from 16 color characters, to pixel mode, to 24 bit color pixels ( cmdrunner-pixel-RGB.bat ): https://www.dropbox.com/s/z0wwqm0c0mbtzpf/cmdrunner-RGB1.PNG?raw=1 https://www.dropbox.com/s/klcu3n6vxyezatw/cmdrunner-RGB2.PNG?raw=1 During this I als...

Re: Heads-up: Cmd window now auto-refreshing after every command(?)

Yes, that would work but be a bit of a pain. CmdBkg still works, but as you know it works differently (somewhat similar to what you posted but with the bitmap in its own window)

Re: Heads-up: Cmd window now auto-refreshing after every command(?)

Aha... I must have missed the end of that discussion.

I thought I had used my script bmp_convert (which shows before/after results in the cmd window for convenience) rather recently without hickups, but I suppose my memory fails me...

Heads-up: Cmd window now auto-refreshing after every command(?)

It used to be that it was possible (via e.g. C API) to draw/insert an image into the cmd window (which would last until the window was scrolled or refreshed). Not sure when, or with which update, but my Windows 10 no longer allows this, because it now automatically refreshes the cmd window after eac...

Re: DrawTXT.exe graphic animations to run on console and create your 2D games

Just a word of caution: I found that without a client/server setup similar to what darkbox and cmdgfx uses, it is quite hard to achieve a consistent frame rate in a Batch game across different computers (at least when using external programs such as bg,cmdgfx,this) Of course, if the game is not an ”...

Re: Wacom tablet pressure input for cmd

The problem I still have, is that I have reason to believe that the pressure range is different on different Wacom tablets. On mine, it is 0-32768. But so far I have not seen in the WACOM API/test code that I found (which is quite old) any way to determine this range. It is basically a non-problem c...

Aaah... so you thought Batch script writers in 2019 was a small interest group?

Re: CmdRunner - 3d game (CubeRunner clone)

Archive update! Oh no, I lied :mrgreen: Of course I also had to turn this into a pixel version ( cmdrunner-pixel.bat ). It can also be resized or played in fullscreen (though you may need a decent CPU to play in fullscreen) https://www.dropbox.com/s/rigipoi7wuuy23w/cmdrunner-pix1.PNG?raw=1 https://...
