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...

Wacom tablet pressure input for cmd

Aaah... so you thought Batch script writers in 2019 was a small interest group? Try Batch script writers with a need for Wacom tablet pressure input! :lol: Download link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/juzr9rwo33nnd7u/cmd_wacom_input.zip/file So to start off, unless you have a Wacom Tablet, this prog...

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://...

Re: CmdRunner - 3d game (CubeRunner clone)

Archive update

One more change before I leave this alone - it’s now possible to resize the game window, as well as play maximized or fullscreen (Alt-Enter on Win10, Ctrl-Enter on Win7).

Fullscreen was tested up to 1920x1080 resolution. Cmdrunner-classic.bat does not support resizing.

Re: mov2txt

Well now, since I started looking at oldies... 3 archive updates :) I hadn't looked at these converted movies for years. When I ran State Of The Art on my Win10 machine it was both slow, used the wrong font, cached files for a really long time, and was not synched with the music at all :cry: So I at...

Re: CmdRunner - 3d game (CubeRunner clone)

Archive update! Well, it's dangerous to look at old stuff... it's too easy to start tinkering with it again :mrgreen: https://www.dropbox.com/s/s76mw8lh3h7kz1f/cmdrunner-remix.png?raw=1 I felt the look of the game needed some improvements, so we got: 1. Variable height cubes 2. Shadows (well, Cmdgf...

Re: CmdRunner - 3d game (CubeRunner clone)

Not sure, but I think it relates to the earlier discussion in this thread about achieving breakable endless loops with for (i.e. my ”genious” for /R approach 😄). DQ2000’s ”solution” is even more confusing, plus it fails badly... Going to quote my earlier new post, lest it might get lost. Archive upd...

Re: CmdRunner - 3d game (CubeRunner clone)

Archive update! :) According to Mediafire's download stats, Cmdrunner keeps being downloaded at a steady pace. It actually has more downloads than Cmdgfx now (but not as many as Blockout, another unsolved mystery). It's a bit funny, because all games I've made (Cmdrunner, Blockout, Mariorun, Pong3d...

Re: Play a sound (.wav) file, without opening an application

Another predictable answer, but CmdWiz has the "playsound" operation. ( https://www.dostips.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7402 , see chapter 10). You wrote that you don't want to invoke software, but the main thing seems to be avoiding a window opening ? Cmdwiz will not do that when run from a batch scr...

Re: Gotoxy

When I save the file. the text that has its editor is saved :( The language barrier is an issue here... I honestly don’t know what that means :? I will make a guess... you are running editor.bat and now you want to save your file but you cannot figure out how it works. I agree, it is a little crypt...

Thank you. If you do want help with the problem you said you have it needs to be a bit more specific than ”has an error”.

Re: Gotoxy

Ok, so I am now thinking you want to save gxy files , the file format used by gotoxy.exe (and cmdgfx.exe) As far as I know there is only one editor for gxy files and that is the one I made myself :D It is called editor.bat and is included in the gotoxy/cmdwiz archive. Use left/right mouse button to ...

Re: press no on external msgbox with yesno option

If an external program is ok, you can try running cmdwiz from your script: https://www.dostips.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7402 If the dialog box is visible and focused at the time you want to press it from the script, it's easy, just send an 'n' character (key codes at https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-u...
