Re: iConvert 4 alpha

Sounds great. Sent you private email as what I put in has proprietary information and describes how what I'm writing works. Send a copy to Ton as I don't have his email.

Re: iConvert 4 alpha

Great. I'll start working on the simpler conversations as soon as I can. However, to calculate certain Lagrange Points requires both the distance and the mass of each object. (This would calculate the point between two objects where the pull of gravity is equal). Unless there is a way to put more th...

Re: Game of Risk, final version

I hope you reconsider as I value, like many, your contributions. I will let you know when I have an initial implementation of one AI strategy. I know many ways to play, so I do hope that when I send you the 2-3 that I outline, I hope to hear about other strategy, like a friend of mine made sure he t...

Re: Screen size- Running in App versus Basic

I'm catching up on this post. When coding in SWIFT or Objective-C, the code that draws the circle is not SWIFT or C Code. It is a UIKit code! You will find he same code in both languages. What SmartBASIC probably did was it imported UIKit inside the interpreter and a Statememt created that is conver...

Re: iConvert 4 alpha

Since I am writing something similar in TechBASIC for the fields of Astronomy, Cosmology, Astrobiology, Rocket Science, Physics and Quantum Mechanics for a university professor to give to his students (the copy I am writing also displays the formula as it is a teaching tool) I can take the core code...

Re: Game of Risk, final version

Hi Henko, I understand, no problem. I love it. I tried to use the save game option you put in, but it would not let me slide it off of new game. I don't know if my iPad touch screen is the issue or if you haven't programmed it. I have had issues with the pop up keyboard before. Maybe if I have time,...

Re: FindFile functi

No, it's not old age. I don't know how many files I have that have more than one copy, but my documents and data size is 2.03GB! I know that I have multiple copies of many programs (I re downloaded a lot just in case Mr. K. does go ahead and removes Dropbox access), I wanted to make sure most if not...

Re: Printing in SB programs

This is why I didn't need to make very much changes, as I print to a network printer that is a WIFI-only connected. I have a thermal dye photo only printer, but I haven't yet hooked it up as I am still unpacking my office boxes. That will need to go through the webserver, which can be accessed eithe...

Re: Game of Risk, final version

I don't see what the issue is. I look for the indicator that says a post was updated, or in this case, A program that I had been watching and waiting to run. I know for me I I don't care if my post is first or second or third or winds up on page 32. You know I just happy if I get replied to a post o...

Re: The game of Risk

Thanks for your explanation on the issues that I haven't had pointed out. But probably will always be in disagreement on the initial placement of armies. I remember as a child playing this game and part of the strategy was to make sure that if you had a good choke point or you had three or four stat...
