Can we get a logical not?

I like that idea calc!  Although I think the ! and ? are both confusing since they mean other things.  Perhaps some other symbol?  Although, yeah, that would be quite a monster to implement... and not entirely clear when to use each one for a beginner.  Also, this would be difficult to logically chain conditions together with and and or, or what to do when more code follows the statement.

Yeah, this is intended only when using as stand-alone conditions. That isn't a problem, though, because there are lots of cases when you don't need multiple conditions (if you do, you might be better off using the boolean versions)

Idea:  Only display/update a square/rectangle part of the screen.
         It would make for insanely easy smooth scrolling games.

Happybob - I like it.

Erm, I don't really understand Calc84's idea. Can you explain it to me like I'm five? (brownie points for getting the reference)

Most likely this has been said before, because I didn't go through the 2588 posts before me.
Anyway,  There should be circle drawing to the back buffer. (for a greyscale circle). I tried to get around it by doing:
Code: [Select]
:circle(5,5,3)
:StorePic
but it still didn't do greyscale. it just stayed the same.

Yeah, buffer support for circles would be cool.

Parser, that should work, try this:

Code: [Select]
.CIRCLE A Gray Circle
ClrDraw
Circle(5,5,3)
StorePic
ClrDraw
DispGraph{r}
Repeat getkey(15)
End

Don't forget the second ClrDraw^

How would that help smooth scrolling games?

DispGraph{r}
wait, is that the superscript r, or am i doing something wrong?
I did : {r} (open curly brace, superscript r, closed curly brace)
but I get an "error: invalid token"

It wouldn't. It would help all games.

I suck at smooth scrolling. so i would just have 8 pixels taken off from every side so i can just draw sprites and use horizontal and vertical.


But like Freyaday said, it would help with many other games too.
