Re: Petit Computer

theblackdragon

@Morphtroid, @bulbasaurusrex: between the two of you, thanks for the idea — i thought that i had to use the $ after things because it'd been used when I DIM'd the array, so i toggled it on and off depending on what i was fiddling with, and it worked fine up until this point. i'd already tried changing all the 'A's to 'A$'s instead but that didn't work at all, lol ('type mismatch' errors and syntax errors depending on which ones i fiddled with and which ones i didn't) so just now I tried changing all the 'A$'s to 'A's instead (aside from the DIM line) and whaddayaknow, it finally works, and for reals this time. hooray!
in the future, would QR codes be better if i'm trying to explain how i'm stuck? lol D:

@Morphtroid: that makes sense re: only being able to use one screen at a time — i'm wanting to say i remember reading an article where someone being interviewed said they had to work around the same thing with actual 'ware and retail titles, so it's not just a limitation of Petit Computer i don't think.

Re: TL;DR: No, you don't have to LOVE Nintendo to post here, and derailing threads by calling out fellow users as trolls may get you temp-banned

theblackdragon

@rayword45: it's (usually) fair game as long as the Rules are respected and no one is namecalling and being nasty to each other. the problem with accusing people of trolling is that it tends to escalate either a misunderstanding or what had been merely a slightly touchy situation into a much bigger argument, and in situations like these chances are i was already watching the user(s) involved and in order to nip any issues as they arise (or as i see them happen, i can't be on the computer 24/7 but i will certainly clean up messes as they come to my attention :3).

i guess the short version is that these things tend to work themselves out; people who are genuine trolls and have no other reason for being here than to be jerks to our userbase will be banned just as soon as i have legitimate reason to do so — gotta give 'em enough rope to hamg themselves, after all. in the meantime, please either be nice to them or ignore them outright, whichever works best for you :3

Re: Petit Computer

theblackdragon

i'd thought i'd solved the problem with my array yesterday, but it turned out i was very, very wrong — aargh this thing is driving me batty. i've been through example after example in several different kinds of BASIC, i've been fiddling with my code for days now, and i've just hit a wall. I know there's an answer, it's just that there's nothing out there that's helping with this specific problem.

this all works fine (minus any weird typos from me typing it into the reply box lol):

CLS
CLEAR

DIM A$(5,4)
FOR B=0 TO 4
FOR C=0 TO 3
READ A$(B,C)
NEXT C
NEXT B

DATA 5,1,2,5
DATA 0,5,4,5
DATA 5,3,5,0
DATA 2,4,5,5
DATA 3,5,5,1

RO=3
PRINT "You are in"
PRINT "Room No. ";RO
@EXITS
IF A$(RO,0)!="5" THEN PRINT "A door leads north.":WAIT 60
IF A$(RO,1)!="5" THEN PRINT "There is an exit to the south.":WAIT 60
IF A$(RO,2)!="5" THEN PRINT "You can leave via the east exit." :WAIT 60
IF A$(RO,3)!="5" THEN PRINT "A doorway leads westward.":WAIT 60

@WHICHWAY
WAIT 60
PRINT "Which direction?":WAIT 60
INPUT "N,S,E,W";D$
IF A$(RO,0)=="5" AND D$=="N" THEN PRINT "You can't go that way!"
IF A$(RO,1)=="5" AND D$=="S" THEN PRINT "You can't walk through walls!"
IF A$(RO,2)=="5" AND D$=="E" THEN PRINT "There's no door there!"
IF A$(RO,3)=="5" AND D$=="W" THEN PRINT "There is no door to the west!"

what I'm having problems with is actual movement throughout this space i've set up. I'm trying to get it to update variable RO (the room i'm currently in) to equal a value from the array I've set up. i've tried just about every variation of the following that I could think of and fiddle around with over the past couple days:

IF D$=="N" THEN RO=A(RO,0)
IF D$=="S" THEN RO=A(RO,1)
IF D$=="E" THEN RO=A(RO,2)
IF D$=="W" THEN RO=A(RO,3)
GOTO @EXITS

and every time i get it working (e.g. not giving me an error due to syntax or subscript out of range), the program will start in the proper room, but as soon as I try to move it puts me into Room 0. It prints the correct responses upon entry of both rooms re: which directions are possible for movement, and it gives the right responses if I try to move in a direction with a value of 5, but I can't switch rooms.

I did manage to get this working by coding it the long way:

IF D$=="N" AND A$(RO,0)=="0" THEN RO=0
IF D$=="N" AND A$(RO,0)=="1" THEN RO=1
IF D$=="N" AND A$(RO,0)=="2" THEN RO=2
IF D$=="N" AND A$(RO,0)=="3" THEN RO=3
IF D$=="N" AND A$(RO,0)=="4" THEN RO=4

IF D$=="S" AND A$(RO,1)="0" THEN RO=0
...

... etc. and so forth, you get the idea. doing it the long way works, but i know there's got to be an easier way of having the array update the room number variable.

Re: Problem with my Wii system.

theblackdragon

your wii itself is scratching discs? it may have something up inside the drive itself (idk if you have little cousins, brothers and sisters, or kids of your own who like to jam things inside electronics, haha) or something inside the drive may be broken and touching the surface of the disc as it spins in the drive. if you're comfortable with it, you could open the Wii yourself and see if there's anything in the drive (there are videos on YouTube that can walk you through the process of opening up your Wii), but if you're not comfortable you could go ahead and have it repaired again.

Re: Just received my 3DS XL, Whooop!

theblackdragon

I've gone ahead and modified your original topic about people receiving their 3DSes to encompass everyone instead of just your friend, that way we can have one big thread for users to show off their new hotness. Please feel free to update it with your experience (provided it abides by the Community Rules). Thank you :3

Re: Ask theblackdragon.

theblackdragon

@RoryLee: The former was obvious copypasta for fun, and the latter was blatant trolling of our entire Monster Hunter loving userbase further emphasized by the behavior of the OP tonight (you may not have seen it happen, but the name of that thread changed a few times over the course of the night, and the OP was given fair warning before their eventual ban). If you'd like to discuss it further, my door is open.

Re: hooking up super nintendo to new lcd flatscreen tv

theblackdragon

that black plug is your s-video one — if you've got a port for that on your VCR or TV you'd be better off using it for your video than the yellow plug. it doesn't carry audio, though, so you'll still need to use the red and white hookups for that.

you can hook up your SNES to your VCR if you like. you'll just have to make sure your VCR is turned on and tuned into its aux or input channel every time you want to play it. don't ask me about lag, though — idk about that since i don't have an HDTV. :3

indeed, i'd kinda like to know this as well. the reason i prefer my nose where it is right now is mainly because i'm not about to go bashing my face into things and snapping it off on accident

edit: bah, screw that, then — i'd rather it be gone entirely if i couldn't have it right where it is :/
