Re: Cmdgfx - draw 3d and graphic primitives (polygons,circles etc) in cmd window (now with 24-bit RGB support!)

Well, hope that was helpful. Just a follow-up because I realized I forgot about another method of achieving a high(er) frame rate without cmdgfx server: using start /B to run cmdgfx. Unfortunately it doesn't work well with cmdgfx_VT because it results in concurrent access, leading to possible screen...

Re: Cmdgfx - draw 3d and graphic primitives (polygons,circles etc) in cmd window (now with 24-bit RGB support!)

I will focus mostly on making interactive menus *without* using a server, as it is significantly simpler and possibly good enough. I am using an image (img\123.bmp) that is in the cmdgfx archive, so it should be possible to run these scripts straight from the cmdgfx folder if you create them there. ...

Re: Cmdgfx - draw 3d and graphic primitives (polygons,circles etc) in cmd window (now with 24-bit RGB support!)

1. image magick is indeed the solution but then you also need to resize it to fit the command window. 2. I think i can will make it with static pictures but how do you do with animations? 3. i tried and opened most of the batch given as examples in cmdgfx i downloaded and for the life of me, I can'...

This script can be used to show any jpg file in the command line once ImageMagick is installed: @echo off & setlocal if "%~1"=="" echo Error: no input.

never mind. cannot print jpeg, only 16 colors pcx command is: cmdgfx_vt "image whatever.pcx 0 0 O -1 0,0 0 0" Hi scavenger, that is (partly) incorrect: cmdgfx_VT and cmdgfx_RGB can print full color BMP images: cmdgfx_vt "image whatever.bmp 0 0 O -1 0,0” However you are correct that it doesn’t suppo...

There are mistakes when approaching sprites a lot and then moving them away is no longer formed.
Ok, can you give an example? (of a line that does not work as expected?). Do you know if this worked in earlier versions?

Or, PM me the code of yours that doesn’t work as expected.

Re: Cmdgfx - draw 3d and graphic primitives (polygons,circles etc) in cmd window (now with 24-bit RGB support!)

Stability update to version 1.5. Wasn't planning on updating this, but then my WIndows 10 started mis-behaving, because I can no longer open a cmd.com window without it hanging! The only fix I found was to enable legacy console mode (some info at https://www.guidingtech.com/cant-type-in-cmd-error/ ...

Mini-update: fullscreen (Ctrl-Enter) should now hopefully cover entire screen even when using legacy console or earlier than Windows 10.

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: [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...
