QBasic / Fox Oring
Last post by yevrowl - Apr 20, 2024, 05:01 AM
Fox Oring is a variation of the sport of amateur radio direction finding. Fox Oring is a timed race in which individual competitors use a topographic map and a magnetic compass to navigate through diverse, wooded terrain while searching for radio transmitters. The term is derived from the use of the term fox hunting to describe recreational radio direction finding activity and an abbreviation of the word orienteering. It is necessary to discover 5 hidden transmitters located on a 10 × 10 field in as few moves as possible. The transmitters broadcast in all 8 directions, the number on the cell indicates the number of intersecting signals.

FreeBasic Projects / Piranha Panic Port
Last post by mysoft - Apr 19, 2024, 07:29 PM
despite this being a game, i didnt made it... so i'm not posting on gamedev
what i made was to port the binary version (there's no source), so it can run on linux and DOS

the port works in a way "similar as that WINE do", i implemented the required windows API that the game uses, and manually load the binary blob of the game and run that

press F2,F3,F4 for new game in... easy/medium/hard difficulties respectively



for the DOS version if running in dosbox i recommend using hdpmi32 instead of cwsdpmi...

i'm now working, on the 2nd step of this project, that is to make a static recompiler, so that i can port this for ARM/WebAsm/x64 etc... and have the game over NDS

source + win32/dos binaries

Quote from: ron77 on Apr 18, 2024, 03:32 PMi compiled the tetris game code with freebasic for dos (DJGPP) AND ADDED HDMPI32.EXE file and a batch file so you can run it under dos (either dosbox or freeDOS OS) I am attaching it here for you as a zip file - tell us if it works for you (to start the game just run START.BAT file)
