Xgraph issues

BreadCaster - 18-9-2017 at 03:00 PM

Hi everybodyyyyy.

I've been messing around a bit more with mode 8, and trying my hand at xgraphs.

I've tried the code below, which follows the example given in the help files exactly - however, when looking at the process from most angles, the graphic seems to be set to 0.

Theres a small range of angles from which the guard does display SOME of the graphics from the perspective table, but not all of them, and its only a very narrow range.

Is this a bug, or am I not using it correctly? If it's a bug I'm happy to write my own xgraph function but if I'm just being thick Id rather know :smilegrin:

Process guard(setflag); Private perspective_table[]=80,81,82,83,84,85,86; Begin ctype=c_m8; go_to_flag(setflag); xgraph=OFFSET perspective_table; Loop; Frame; End End

So I guess nobody knows anything about this huh? I did look at the tutorial 7 example and it looked like it was coded in exactly the same way, so I'm going to assume this is a bug with Mode 8. Could someone confirm? Id feel pretty silly writing a working xgraph function if I dont need to haha :P

Hello BreadCaster,

Looking at the source code of mode8, it looks like Xgraph support is implemented, so if it's not working it's probably a bug, if you can mount a small example for mode8 using that, I could check what's actually going on.

Hi Cictec

This probably wasnt the best solution for the problem, but because itd be more work to mount an example than fix it myself - I wrote a custom xgraph function that returns a different variable (used to set the fathers graph) based on the fathers/calling processes angle instead :p

Will post it up as soon as Im back on the windows machine.

Hi BreadCaster,

Ok, no problem, take all the time you need. :)
