Tutorial Difficulty 3/5: Intermediate First and foremost. If you are just learning to program, please do not try to attempt this. You can RIP it from the code download, but do me a favor, and do not ask me questions. I am not here to teach you the basics. This requires you to have a good knowledge ...

Hey william, I created a text tutorial for what I was talking about (very little code), would you care to test the tutorial for me? It makes sense to me, but just wanted to make sure it makes sense to everyone else. If so, contact me on any of my instant messengers below, or GTalk (same as my MSN).

Verrigan, I currently use the same system you stated in a project of mine. I did this just for the simplicity of having the entire map drawing routines in one sub. I have LowerBuffer which would hold the mirage ground & mask, a Middlebuffer which would hold mirages items, players, & npcs, an...

It's edited in the first post but here's the change: In EditorChooseTile: Find: DD_TileSurf.BltToDC frmMirage.picBack.hdc, rec_pos, rec and change to DD_TileSurf.BltToDC frmM...

You, you're the one who mentioned the bug in mine..

[Edit]Then you most likely did unless you deleted/renamed the song. I imagine that bug has something to do with the music. It is something I worried about when adding it, since the game seems to freeze for a second when loading it the first time..

Ok.....Done! Same link. Leveling increases speed by 20 ticks each time. You level every 10000 points. I can lower that upon request... [Edit] Slight fix on 2 things. I stopped the speed increase for after level 25. Your level will continue to rise, but the speed will stay the same as it was on level...

Well, better late than never. I actually started this tetris clone a few months ago and gave up after I got bored with it. No leveling yet. Hope Mith doesn't mind, but I used his graphics with a slight modification. And thanks Misunderstood for the wikipedia link on the scoring. [Edit]Forgot to ment...

Client-side:

Open modText and goto Sub AddText

Change:
s = vbNewLine & Msg

to:
s = Msg & vbNewLine


I think this is what you're referring to..

No, the way it is currently setup, it does not place the data from memory to a picturebox. Just a little information, this will greatly increase your executable size. If you don't care just keep reading. Add this sub to your project. Public Sub LoadFromPictureBox(DDSURF As DirectDrawSurface7, pB...

Heh, I missed a lot. But then again, many of those are very unlikely to be used. Oh well, just in case right?

Oh and funky, great find! Wish I could edit my post to add this stuff, but looks like grim needs to do it.

Are you sure even an admin can move if they just take away the blocks on their map without sending? I am pretty sure that is not true. Since both the client and server check for blocks, however only the client checsk if the players/npcs are in the way, that is a problem, but its not much of a hack....

Haha, that last post ended up with arguments, but this one is to show you exactly how a few things can be done with packet sniffers. Thus giving you the proof you said we need to have before making a claim about something. Ok, I believe this works on all versions of MS including playerworlds, assumi...

Actually, my computer was doing this a couple of months ago. Exact same problem minus the water spillage.

Most of the tiles look awesome. Just one thing bugs me. The dirt tile. I can easily see the repeating pattern in it. It kind of sticks out in the 2 screens.

To be honest. I don't use mirage at all. I just hang around to see if anything good comes up out of it. So, in answer to your question, I've never seen the bug before.

Make them dynamic by changing anything like this:

Tile(0 to x, 0 to x) as ...

to

Tile() as ...

then redim it somewhere, perhaps the load map or something like that.

Redim Preserve Map(x).Tile(0 to x, 0 to x)

In client, you don't need Preserve.

Make since?
