ok then, all converted, what it is, is the bases of what im considering makeing a game off. But basicly there one ship with two parical trails and two layers of never ending stars. Keys are as follows:
up = faster
down = slower
left = left
right = right
and the code it 20 lines reads as follows:
sync on : autocam off : for t=1000 to 1250 : make object sphere t,1 : if t =1100 : position object t,rnd(1000)-500,-100,rnd(1000)-500 : endif
next t : load image "fire1.bmp",1 : load object "Ship.X",1 : scale object 1,1000,1000,1000 : position object 1,0,0,0
for t=1 to 2 : make object sphere t+10,1 : hide object t+10 : make particles t,2,1,15 : position particles t,0,-100,0
position particle emissions t,0,0,0 : set particle gravity t,0 : set particle velocity t,0 : set particle speed t,0.0075 : set particle life t,5
next t : color backdrop rgb(0,0,0) : position camera 0,200,0 : point camera 0,0,0 : set camera range 10,10000
shipturn#=0 : speed#=2.5 : do : for t=1000 to 1099 : if object position x(t) > object position x(1)+250
position object t,object position x(1)-250,-50,object position z(1)+rnd(500)-250 : endif : if object position z(t) > object position z(1)+250 : position object t,object position x(1)+rnd(500)-250,-50,object position z(1)-250 : endif
if object position x(t) object position x(1)+500 : position object t,object position x(1)-500,-100,object position z(1)+rnd(1000)-500
endif : if object position z(t) > object position z(1)+500 : position object t,object position x(1)+rnd(1000)-500,-100,object position z(1)-500 : endif : if object position x(t)

Line 9 exceeds 25 chars in length, try again!

I love Star Trek.
Especially the Episodes with Starships in.

Less than 25 characters? Nope - definitely not a requirement I think he might have meant "less than 250k" but that's for media, not the final EXE - even DBPro doesn't make an EXE smaller than 250k

Cheers,

I think he means less than 256 characters - DB can only handle 255 or less characters per line, an error is returned if the line is longer than that. That's why my programs need a little re-arranging before they run in DB, with 363 and about 500 chars. Actually the second one won't run in DB because it needs DBPro specific commands.

I can't seem to get the exe's below 4mb for some reason, is there any way to get them smaller?
