A simple SDK that allows to create 2D and 3D graphics applications on FASM using the B3D.dll function.

I guess this should make learning assembly for beginners more interesting, at least not so boring.

Link to SDK (see README.md) https://github.com/Blitz3DFASM/Blitz3DFASMSDK/tree/main

Sufficiently crude B3D.dll commands help: https://blitz3dfasm.github.io/FASM_B3D_SDK_HELP/help/asm_commands/index.htm

Yes, it is very old and uses DirectX 7. And of course there is no support for shaders.

However, how many assembly lines would it take with pure DirectX or OpenGL to load a 3D 3DS model and display it on the screen? Or, for example, to download a sound or video file and play it?

With this library, it only takes a couple of lines.

This allows to make the assembler more visual and simplify the input and output of information.

For example random line generator source code:

Code:
    ; Line example
    include "blitz3d.inc"

    r dd 0
    g dd 0
    b dd 0
    x1 dd 0
    y1 dd 0
    x2 dd 0
    y2 dd 0

    start:
         ; Set The Graphic Mode
         cinvoke bbGraphics, 800, 600, 0, 0

         ; Set backbuffer
         cinvoke bbBackBuffer
         cinvoke bbSetBuffer, eax

         ; Wait for ESC to hit
    main_loop:
         cinvoke bbKeyHit, KEY_ESCAPE ; Wait Esc
         or eax, eax
         jnz exit_from_main_loop

         ; Set a random color
         rand [r],255
         rand [g],255
         rand [b],255
         cinvoke bbColor, [r], [g], [b]

         ; Draw a random line
         rand [x1],800
         rand [y1],600
         rand [x2],800
         rand [y2],600
         cinvoke bbLine, [x1],[y1],[x2],[y2]

         cinvoke bbFlip, 0

         jmp main_loop;
    exit_from_main_loop:  
    


Of course, B3D.dll has some shortcomings, this is the lack of functions for working with the file system, with the network, there is no random number generator, time date functions and much more.
