Next 'Windows game programming for dummies' examples ready!, but there is a problem. The file is 3MB in size Shocked . So if the moderator would allow me to upload this, all can enjoy Wink . And if the moderator would like, he/she can delete all previous versions of my examples and just point them to this post. Tried uploading to programmers heaven, but they have a 1MB file size limit. And unfortunately, I don't have a website of my own, noor will I have one any time soon. So anybody have any suggestions?

Well it is all ready compressed with winrar, and still 3mb in size. Winrar all ready does a good job of compressing. If the 7-zip can compress it to 768kb, the file size limit of this forum, then I will use it!
Just tell me where to get it.

Why not break it up into several smaller files?

Ok, thanks coconut, I'll send it right over. What is the name of your website? Do you or anyone know the requirements for using sourceforge for file uploading? Does it cost to use sourceforge?

crc: It would have to be broken up into 4+ parts, and It would be to cumbersome to put all the files back together into one.

68.225.35.57 This is my personal computer's ftp server. anonymous upload is always accepted(G6FtpServer). it's always on, so use it until you can get web space; which, i have 70 mb of storage u can use. i don't use it at all.

i notice you bundled fasmw in the rar, is this because you have modified it?

asmdemon: Thanks I'll upload there too
coconut: No, no modifications, just easier to use. Every thing you need is right in the main folder, copy the new fasmlib.dll into your system folder, create a shortcut to the fasmw.exe and begin compiling the examples, easy.

including fasmw compiler is not the problem. It is the .bmp files that are bloating the file. I've tried already to split it into two packages, at minimum it would take 3 just for this update. And this package is only going to grow bigger as time goes on. It is better to leave it as one package, with all needed files in place, including the complete compiler, and includes. Much easier for beginners to use and play around with.

Yes, the examples in the book only use bmp. Unless you have some ready made jpg assembly code, this will be the case for the rest of the examples.

1) You have to have an account
2) They have to approve the project
3) You upload via FTP, and use the "File Release System" to make releases

SourceForge is free. It is a pain to manage a project, which is why I quickly abandonded them for my projects. How big do you anticipate this project growing to be (file sizes, activity, etc)?

May I suggest a place just nice for this size of project. Take a look at http://www.smartgroups.com webgroup. It's a free group site which is allowed 20MB for files sharing space. A little bit about it's features I think suit for your projects:

  1. Looks very simple and easy to access.
  2. Visitor don't have to log-in to download a file if you set to open files area.
  3. Built-in mailing list, in-case members want to know latest updates.
  4. 30MB Picture space for screenshot or related pictures.
  5. You don't have to spent time designing web interfaces. Just upload your updates and post an announcement about it.
  6. Since your example separated by chapters, so people just choose to upload the latest one without download the old same thing unless there is update on it.
  7. message discussion area.
  8. Database, Ads posting, and others that you might not use it he..he..he... Wink

To have free maintenance, just open all section to allow everyone access and unmoderate. The rest will be handle by the group provider.

Just a suggestion.

i-don.

Hello, Idon
Thanks, Idon, I'll look into it when I have time, If its free like you say it is, it would not suprise me at all that it will have popup's and advertiseing madness. If it is one or two popups, no problem, but any more than that, then I'll look elsewhere!

Probably will start doing it this way, Now that all the files needed are in a "package" now. The only file that will change is the fasmlib.dll library.

One last thing, I tried making 15-bit versions of the examples, but wouldn't you know it, my card does NOT support 15-bit screen resolution mode. Very Happy So you can try and modify the source yourself, consider this a little test of what you know so far Wink . If you have and problems let me know.

Yeah, I think in the future. most of free sites is going like a fish market with popup ads. So far, I've not receive any popup on IE only see top banner ads and text ads footnote from one of the group news digest (I set to receive text e-mail).

I used Firefox browser mostly and seldom use my IE browser. I've not known if there a popup (years, since does not seen any without my permission). I set my IE as main browser and set the connection to a dummy proxy (e.g. 127.0.0.0) so any attempt to sending out my pc info from background will no effect until I clean it up before use it for a test viewing with IE.

I set the fasmlib is separate diretory. mostly in where I unpack the examples. It is my preference anyway. It helps my to compare between the new one with previous version. I just need to edit the include as such:

Code:
include '..\dxinc1\whatever.inc'    ; I use ".." to jump to neighbour directory

;- or -

include '..\dxinc2\whatever.inc'

;- or -

include '..\dxinc3\whatever.inc'

    


and compile the file without a problem. Wink

I guess, you just need to include a text file copied from your previous post in the forum in-case there is anyone has 15bit display like mine could know what to do.

For me, I know already and it has no problem once I fixed that. Smile

Thanks for a great tutorials.

greetings,

i-don.
