Haha, I see what Brian did. he changed my block from infinite to one day. Wow. He lied to you and all of us random. Can you delete the block?

@SmokedSausage If that is the only way to remove a permanent block, then do not assume it was done as a means of provoking you and just wait it out.

No, it's the fact that brian blocked me because he didn't like what I was saying to him. I was saying that he can't make decisions for the wiki all for himself and that he was being greedy, selfish, and ignorant, and stubborn. He lied to random, he has broken several rules, he can't block anyone without approval anyway. Something needs to be done
Sorry for saying everything on here even though it is not on topic, it's my only line of getting ahold of @randomous

i just want to say that before downloading this, i knew nothing about programming, or how games were made. this app opened my eyes. the very first time i made the app say, "Hello World," i felt so attracted to this, and i had to learn more. i spent months playing with this, learning code for the first time, understanding the programmer logic, and i had FUN WITH NUMBERS (and now i have a reason to use math)! i made sprites, animations, player-controlled animations, etc etc. Now, i've moved on to more complicated languages, namely C++. but i will never forget the fun this app gave me, even if i can't remember any of the commands. i think anyone who wants to get into programming should download this.

@HappyHappyist I used to program in Visual Basic. Gave up on it. After a few years, I found this. It really inspired me to get back into programming. Now I am a decent programmer in C#, very fluent in Petit Computer, and a few other lesser-known languages. Agreed 100% with you.

If Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat were all destroyed, 90% of teens would go insane. If you're one of the 10% that would be laughing at them, copy & paste this into your signature and hope it happens.

When I was very young, I was introduced to Visual Basic. And I was using the computer a lot programming in it. I made a football scoreboard by myself and I stand proud by that program today. I even have it on my hard drive on this very computer, but it was programmed on the computer sitting at my feet right now as I use my gaming PC that is weakened, struck by a terrible hardware problem with the liquid cooling system tube that brought it to its metaphorical knees.
Conclusion: I used to use VB all the TIME before I abandoned it and found other languages that were interesting. I just can't seem to learn PTC that well...

Edited on by Slayer

I have nothing really to say about myself.

i'd like to add on that this community has been extremely helpful. in my time here, this one forum answered each question very thoroughly and politely. without such threads, learning PTC is nearly impossible, so thanks for the help guys, you're part of the solution.

I began with GW-Basic, moved to Q-Basic, then to Visual Basic. I remember using a DX7 wrapper and began work on what I called RPGC, which was to make games along the lines of Secret of Mana. The original website for it still exists here. It was quite ambitious, and that's why it never got finished, because I didn't know enough game logic to carry it out. It wasn't until I taught myself the C language via GBA homebrew that I began to learn that, but I never went back to that project. From there I went on to DS homebrew, as well as learned C++ and C# on my own. I learned other languages like Java in school and techniques in game programming, but my favorite is the C-based language.

PTC wasn't hard for me because of my BASIC background.

@randomous or maybe @Discostew I have a program request. Could you make a program that turns PTC COL files into color swatches for popular image editors (Photoshop, Paint.NET, GIMP, Greenfish icon editor, inkscape, etc) or an image to use the color picker tool on. This will be useful for people like me; who make their graohics on a computer with their own colors. I wanted to do it for a while, but I don't understand how PTC encodes (or whatever it is) stuff.

Everybody do a chirp. CHIRP.

There's not much to taking the colors from a PTC COL file. After the 48-byte header (which is present in all PTC files), the remaining 512 bytes make up the 256 colors. Each color is represented as 16-bit values (only 15-bits is used), which is 2-bytes (2bytes * 256 = 512 bytes). The first 5 bits are for red (making a range of 0 to 31), next 5 for green, and last 5 for blue. The final bit of the 16-bit value is always 0 because only the first 15 get occupied. After getting each component, you can upscale to 24-bit by multiplying each component value by 8 (forcing the range from 0-31 to 0-255, although 31 will be shown as 248). 32-bit is just 24-bit with an extra component for alpha (set at 255 for opaque).

I never knew how REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY really HARD ADDING CRAFTING IS IN A GAME. I probably did it really inefficiently too. Ehh atleast it's a system I can easily add crafts with.

What I got from that:

Colours colours colours bit stuff values

I agree. Thank you for being an amazing and helpful community.

@bigdog00 nop I told you I'm working on another short project right now sorry

Hmmm, so my story.

PTC was probably my first program experience actually, I don't think you could count a crappy LUA script that does nothing as a programming experience. After PTC I wanted to get into more advanced things, and my OS had suddenly quit on me forcing me to install Ubuntu. From there I tried a C compiler on Ubuntu and got really into C. C++, didn't really like. Randomous persuaded me to try C# and so I installed Visual Studio after installing Windows 7. I know know more C# than any other object oriented language now and finally know a little bit of Visual Basic. I have also tried Java. Now I can program in Javascript, C, C#, SmileBASIC, a little bit of Java, and HTML & CSS.

Now everyone back in your camping tents, campfire stories are over sadly
