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...

Thanks Steffen

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...

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...
