    On Windows 8.1 the images are not visible. Its kind of very faint background.

    @Alwyn B Great game... well done!

    Just one thing, to get it to run on Windows, you need to enable "Use GDI Plus" in the Windows build settings.

    Why is this defaulted to OFF (disabled) ?

  4. With RS2012 I ran into an error on EZfont.NewFormattedPic:
    On the first line: PlatformNotSupportedException

    I also think GDI Plus should be ON by default.

    @Alwyn B I also think GDI Plus should be ON by default.

    I've updated all my project templates with GDI+ true so my future posts shouldn't have this problem :)

    @Mathias M With RS2012 I ran into an error on EZfont.NewFormattedPic:
    On the first line: PlatformNotSupportedException

    That first line creates an alpha style Picture which isn't supported for all platforms (I think only Carbon isn't). Instead you'll need to create a mask style Picture by simply adding ", 32".

    dim p As new Picture(width, height, 32)

    I'll see what I can do to update my code.

    @S A On Windows 8.1 the images are not visible. Its kind of very faint background.

    I'm not sure. Is this the GDI+ issue? Or maybe its a graphics card thing my OpenGL code doesn't account for. I work only on Mac and don't have a way to investigate or know about Windows and Linux differences. If there was a crash I could guess but otherwise I can't think of what's wrong :(

    GitHub link in the first post?

    Nope, the github project appears to be for XCODE.
    However, I found Will Shank posted a ezfl1j1 engine with the XoppyBird project in it. It runs and works!
    Now I just need to learn how this works to see what I need.

    I've used the canvas control in other projects, just nothing game like. So this should be super helpful ... me thinks.

    Thanks @Markus W

    You should post the link for others coming here …

    This is a much simpler version than the one I found, in one of Will's larger projects

    @Jean-YvesPochez Thanks so much!
