Wee Basic
« on: March 18, 2009, 06:34:35 PM »

New version of Wee Basic for this mighty compo.  Wee basic now has:

- backgrounds
- sprites
- sounds
- microphone
- key presses (keyboard and most hardware keys)
- stylus touches (touch recognition and coordinates)
- motion
- primitive graphics
- basic printing and coordinate printing
- both screens can be used
- core basic commands
- usable editor with save/load, using text files

Version 0.6


- editor has been completely revamped thanks to Alan's txtwriter source code. See
I modified some of txtwriter's basic editing code for the Wee Basic editor.
- bug in boolexpressions (for if/while) using strings


- added motion commands (untested)
motion (keyword initializes motion - throws an error if no motion card detected)
motx, moty (motion coordinates)

let x=motx
let y=moty
print 1 "Motionx: "+x
print 1 "Motiony: "+y

- playmp3 now has optional settings
Syntax is playmp3 <filename> <volume>,<pan>,<bitrate> (each is an integer or number variable)
You can still use playmp3 without options if you want to keep it simple

Nice to se ya again here :)

Original submission : yes

Uhm, how I remember, original submission means, that the programm isnt changed from the first time it entered.
So this actualy should be "no" because you entered with a new version ~

Good luck !
