    What if it had more bits? I wanna start out something at least 32-bit sometime....

Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself side-rant about bits The bit wars are overrated. SB has 16-bit color, 32-bit ints, and 64 bit floats. Approaching the length of a machine word as an indicator of raw power, especially in such an abstract environment, is meaningless. Sure the NES had an 8-bit word length but its color palette was certainly less. I wish people would stop saying things like "8-bit game" because it doesn't mean anything. Anyway the Switch has a 64-bit processor so ints might also be 64 bits wide in SB now, if that means anything to you. Posted

Express Yourself Do The Math Anyway, 64 bit integers are annoying because there really aren't any situations where they're more useful than 32 bit integers, and you'll just end up using more memory for no reason... Plus, then you won't just be able to safely use doubles for everything, since there are values that can be stored in 64 bit integers but not doubles. Posted

    Can't wait until we reach 512-bit processors. That'll be a while.

Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself I've never seen it mentioned anywhere but HARDWARE is 3 on PiSTARTER, so Switch is likely 4 (assuming they use HARDWARE this time around.) Additionally PiSTARTER refers to its language as SmileBASIC-R (revision?) and is in multiple ways different from past versions (filesystem and input methods especially) so what this says about Switch is yet to be seen.

    SmileBASIC-R R stands for Raspberry Pi lol
    that's a fair thought but they also released SOLIDGUNNER-R (revision) alongside this thing so

    PiStarter does have additional features though, like HTTP support, so maybe it is a revision.

Express Yourself FUZE delayed again until May 31st 😈 [url=https://youtu.be/8iiJlJ-dKDk]https://youtu.be/8iiJlJ-dKDk[/url] However, they did release this preview video and while I only skimmed it, some of what I saw might give SB a run for its money (full 3D with light/shadows...)

  • #299 ✎ 105 seggiepants They delayed AGAIN!! Insert angry cursing and muttering here. That thing is about a year late now. They are treading into Duke Nukem Forever territory. I have a favor to ask, my eyes are old and my mobile data connection very slow making YouTube blurry at best. Can anyone watching the video spot if the code looks like the PC/Pi version or if they really have changed it significantly. They were acting like the switch version was going to be more like Python. I hope they at least added classes, and gave sprites a z order. I was counting the days to get it. It is why I bought a switch. What are the odds of SmileBasic Switch beating it to market? Posted
