Maybe somebody can help you when you are more specific about these errors.

Note that this workshop was not written with the recent vbcc version in mind. I guess it was v0.9e. This may be especially important as Kai uses the "kick13" config file, which still exists in v0.9f, but now it is a separate target: m68k-kick13. This target requires the original Commodore 1.3 header files and its amiga.lib supports 1.3 library functions only.

Hi Guys,

This is the error I get. So not in touch with C or Amiga compilers dont know where to start.

Fatal error 8: Cannot open "vlibos3:startup13.o": No such file or directory.
vlink failed returncode 20
vlink -bamigahunk -x -Bstatic -Cvbcc -nostdlib vlibos3:startup13.o "T:t_4_0.o" -lamiga -s -Lvlibos3: -lvc -o test failed

those lines seem to come form the kick13 file ????? and I guess it means it can't find some files it needs ?

Does anyone that has followed this tutorial find the result to be a bit flickery?

I had some code written a long time ago that basically drew a rectangle aong the bottom of an intuition window (as per breakout) and you moved it left / right with the cursor keys but it was always flickery. You could visibly see the left / right edges being redrawn as you moved. i had previously put it down to me not knowing what I was really doing.

So since this code has a lot of work around timers and refreshing the window only when needed etc., I modified it to draw my 'bat' instead of the rotating square and the result is identical to what I previously had.

I'm aware that line drawing is probably not the best way to go and I should probably use sprites but I'm surprised moving a simple rectangle can't be made smooth??

The tutorial already uses double buffering. Well it says it does anyway. It writes to a second buffer which is swapped in when drawing is complete. Obviously I don't know if it's correct or not. Have you looked at the code in the document?

My original code also used double buffering but it wouldn't surprise me at all if I was doing that wrong

If you post your code we could have a look if there's something wrong with it.
