  1. I'm trying to emulate a gameboy, but it plays a little too fast. This how I'm doing my timing inside the main loop. if (cpu.T >= CLOCKSPEED / 40) // if more than 1/40th of cycles passed {     // Get milliseconds passed QueryPerformanceCounter(&EndCounter); unsigned long long counter = EndCounter.QuadPart - LastCounter.QuadPart; MSperFrame = 1000.0 * ((double)counter / (double)PerfCountFrequency); LastCounter = EndCounter;         // if 1/40th of a second hasn't passed, wait until it passes if (MSperFrame < 25) Sleep(25 - MSperFrame); cpu.T -= CLOCKSPEED / 40; } CLOCKSPEED is the cycles per second of the emulated cpu (4194304) cpu.T is cycles passed.   I'm using Visual Studio 2013. I even tried switching to C++ and using steady_clock but nothing changed. What could be the problem?
  2. Can't open program outside Visual Studio

    Ok I'll look for it myself. Thanks
  3. Can't open program outside Visual Studio

    I fixed it. I had made just a simple mistake. I had forgot to put the .jpg files needed in the same folder as the exe. What about the two dll files. Is there any way to build/link the program so I don't need them to open the program?
  4. Hi,   I made a simple 2D game using the allegro library. When I run it inside Visual Studio, it works fine, both in the release and debug builds. But when I open the exe file in windows explorer I get an error message: First it said: "The program can't start because allegro-4.4.2-md.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix the problem." So I pasted that file in the same folder as the exe. And I got the same error message, but for another file, "libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll". I pasted that file in there folder too, and started the exe again. Now, a blank window opens, and I get an error message: (Project2.exe has stopped working. Close program or check online for solution).   What do I do with this?
  5. Find WiFi MAC address using J2ME

    Yes, those mainly, but if possible also other phones that can also connect to the internet through wifi, not only through the sim card service provider. I realize that's probably impossible, so I'm looking for the solution that works on most platforms.
  6. Find WiFi MAC address using J2ME

    Thanks, that might work, but does it only work on Android or all phones that support wifi?
  7. Hi, I just started trying out J2ME but I can't find a way to do something. If the phone is connected to my modem wirelessly, is there any way I can get the modem's MAC address in the application?
  8. What should I do next

    Thank you all for your replies. I'll try adding the AI in the pac-man game and then I'll continue with the platformer and the RPG.   I forgot to mention I already made a simple level editor. But I save the level in text files with one digit numbers to represent different tiles. What could be a better way to do this if I need more than 10 tiles and can't use numbers? Should I use characters or save it in some other file format?
  9. What should I do next

    I have learned C++ and Java (I prefer C++). I made some simple 2D games with the allegro library (pong, tetris, space invaders, pac-man without the AI). And now I'm a little out of ideas to try. I think I need some more practice before trying to make an RPG game or getting into 3D. What should I try next? A new language? Some other game? Learn more on a specific aspect of game programming (AI, sprites, animation, audio etc).   EDIT: Is there any website similar to projecteuler, but for game programming?
  10. C++ 11 thread not working on CodeBlocks

    Ok I'll try the latest one I can find on the MinGW website.
  11. C++ 11 thread not working on CodeBlocks

    Yes I'm using MinGW. I didn't know it doesn't suport c++11 threading yet. I'll try something else. Thanks
  12. I wanted to try out the new std::thread in C++11 in Code Blocks and I'm not sure if I'm doing it right. This is the code: #include <iostream> #include <thread> void foo() { std::cout << "\n thread started. \n"; } int main() { std::cout << "starting thread"; std::thread thr1(foo); std::cout << "waiting for thread to finish\n"; thr1.join(); std::cout << "done!\n"; return 0; }   At first I got some kind of warning that I had to use a compiler flag (-std=c++11), so I did. And now I get 'thread is not a member of std'   I'm using GNU GCC compiler on windows 7. What should I do?
  13. error when including iostream

    I found what was wrong. In the link libraries list, I had included all the libraries in the MinGW\lib folder. I am used to doing that, I can't remember why, and I didn't have a problem with it before cause I haven't work on a console project with iostream for a long time. I removed all the libraries from the link libraries list and it worked fine.Thx
  14. error when including iostream

    The compiler and linker for dynamic libs is mingw32-g++.exe The linker for static libs is ar.exe Don't know if these are necessary: debugger: gdb.exe Resource compiler: windres.exe make program: make.exe
  15. error when including iostream

    I tried compiling from the command line with the example you gave me and it worked. Yes, that compiler came with Code::Blocks.
