I've been using NSBasic for a couple of years now, and I'm thinking of switching to Pocket C. NSBasic has done the job, for the most part, with a few compromises. Has anyone out there used both? :?: Is Pocket C any better for game programming?

Thanks,
Norm

Unfortunately I haven't used NSBASIC. I suspect that you will gain a few things and lose a few things by switching from one to the other.

Is there a demo of NSBASIC available?

They have just released one in the last month or so.

One thing you should know is that PocketC for WindowsCE/PocketPC is no longer supported by the author, Kevin Cao (this is NOT true for the Palm version, supported by Jeremey Dewey. Actually Jeremy provides excellent support). So don't expect any bug to be fixed or any features to be improved (and there are a lot of bugs with Version V3; V2 is much more stable and faster, but is lacking several features). If you can live with this, fine, if not, better not hope for anything.

There is however, unofficial end user support from parts of the community.

Is is true Guy that you are thinking about creating a new compiler for Pocket C? I seem to remember seeing something on another post.

You don't want to waste your time with PocketC if you are into games. You are better off using a game toolkit developed for use with eVC++ which lessens the need to get technical but still needs C++ knowledge. You might need to devote 6 months to leasrning C++ but at the end of all that time you will be able to use mainstream tools and will get superb performance & just as good a user community as you will find here.

I have written one full game with PocketC and have evalauted NS Basic and I really think you are best to move on up :)

ps: see http://www.pocketmatrix.com forums for one of the best games support sites for PocketPC

There's some info on this on the ceapi discussion board. This is now my current project. It will be an ANSI C compiler, but there will be some support for PocketC compatibility. It <b>will</b> be able to call library code written in other languages.

Hello Guy and a happy new year to you and yours.

a couple of questions:

1 how will your compiler be licensed?
2 will you have a paypal donation option so people can encourage you by sending a few quid / dollars / euros

And a happy new year to you too!

1. I haven't decided how to do this yet. It will probably be shareware.
2. This is possible. I have been considering things like this. I would feel guilty about people encouraging me in advance by sending money because I can't guarantee a release date.
