Yes, I was wondering why he posted that code too.

At the very least it needs some explanation, e.g. did he need help getting it to work, was he offering it to us as an example or what? The file references to drive e: are unhelpful to say the least - and there's an obvious error at the end where the variable "fram" suddenly becomes "frame". Also, the code seems to get stuck in an infinite loop as soon as you try to run it. Not much point delving further into the code without more input from Hannibal (who after 9 years on this forum should know better).

This version does work and does not lockup. The first version just showed a blank screen and didn't want to exit. I didn't look through to see what the difference in the two is.

BTW, you're last name isn't Lector is it?



So many games to code.....so little time.

I still get just a blank screen. Should I have to wait a while or what?

Edit The answer seems to be "YES!!". After a few minutes this appeared:



Looks pretty at least.

Yep.

I've added a couple of lines so you can see something happening while you wait:

I'm using a GT630M laptop.

Oops! Just realised I'm using the Intel GFX card as a default. The code runs far quicker with the GT630M card.

It took over 2 min before something was displayed on screen. Didn't see any animation though. I clicked the screen and it crashed. Running a GTX660 and i7-3770K

If you haven't already,

@GG
Dude I almost just p***ed my pants just reading that initial response from the 14th. Being drunk didn't help.
