Detect sleep mode or home menu

MILLISEC is a millisecond (1/1000) timer. It uses the 3DS's internal clock, which runs constantly. MAINCNT is a counter, which increments during screen refresh (59.834 times per second). Since this is controlled by SB, it doesn't happen during sleep mode or when you're on the home menu. When you go to the menu or close your 3DS, they become desynchronized, which is easy to detect. VAR _OLDMS%=MILLISEC VAR _OLDMC%=MAINCNT DEF PAUSED() VAR MS%=MILLISEC VAR MC%=MAINCNT VAR DIFF#=(MS%-_OLDMS%)-(MC%-_OLDMC%)/59.834*1000 '3DS runs at 59.834 FPS, not exactly 60 _OLDMS%=MS% _OLDMC%=MC% IF DIFF#<2 THEN DIFF#=0 'ignore differences of less than 2 milliseconds RETURN DIFF# ENDThis function does not need to run constantly. It will return the number of milliseconds spent in sleep mode or the home menu since the last call.

Express Yourself Expert Programmer Programming no longer gives me any trouble. Come to me for help, if you like! Programming Strength how do you actually use this? i don't know how to use DEF lol TheV360 TheV360 Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength First Day Joined on the very first day of SmileBASIC Source Website Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself DEF lets you make your own commands and functions. DEF TEST PRINT "Hello" ENDwould print "Hello" when you run it with TEST. More examples: DEF TALKPRINT T$ FOR I=0 TO LEN(T$)-1 PRINT T$[I] BEEP VSYNC 5 NEXT END TALKPRINT "blah blah blah" DEF ADD(NUM1,NUM2) RETURN NUM1+NUM2 END PRINT ADD(2,2)To run DEFined functions, just write their name like you would write PRINT.

Come to me for help, if you like! Programming Strength YOU DIDN'T EXPLAIN IT WELL ENOUGH! GIVE AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT TO DO TO GOTO A LABEL WITH THIS CODE PLS Y_ack Y_ack Head Admin Understanding is on you. A lot of your posts are low-quality or thoughtless, DaSonicMario. Please try to be more considerate; this is not miiverse and the expectations are different.

Programming Strength i know it's not Miiverse but i thought it'd be similar to Miiverse. chicken chicken OSP Contest 1 Contest Participant I participated in the first SmileBASIC Source OSP Contest!

You can learn a lot more here as well if you look and ask in the right places. Also, your question was in caps and badly phrased. Sometimes that will work, sometimes it won’t. But it’s usually the latter. Don’t use label loops, kids. Stay in WHILE and eat your DEFs.
