by "toolkit" I just meant "whatever it is in the FreeBasic infrastructure that allows you to draw things on screen"
Yeah, it's difficult not to use these terms today
Both "toolkit" and "SDK" sound like a different paradigm. It's like saying "folder" instead of "directory"... makes no harm, but we Linux users see a warning sign come up when we hear that word and wonder if maybe the guy assuming we're talking about Windows. I used to do all the blitting in assembly, but FreeBasic really does have very powerful primitives and for 2D, most of the time, it's not necessary to get that deep... and I like the fact that anybody can compile my source with just FreeBasic and no more requirements.*
I've added shortcuts for everything. You'll see that in the next update. There's even one for transitions, but although you can use that, I have the feeling that it'll be more comfortable getting used to using the link
shortcut, because the transition
one requires that you press it again and again until you find the transition you're looking for. And about ramps
, no, they have a shortcut of their own. What I mean is that ramps can easily be produced with the link shortcut most of the time.
I'm thinking it is still worth trying to implement the keyboard editing style I told you about before.
[...] so that simply adding the relevant web address would be enough for the program to do the proper thing, right?
Yes, that's my idea. If the tournament is ZakStunts, Cas-Stunts will parse the HTML. If it's any other, it will look for specific text-based configuration files from where it will get the info to do the same thing, so any tournament can implement that "protocol" easily without having to display a particular appearance. Downloading the current track from ZakStunts using Cas-Stunts can be more convenient than doing it from the website, because Cas-Stunts won't automatically save it to disk, but will just load it into memory and allow you to save it wherever you want, which by default, will be the directory you set in the configuration (probably Stunts' directory). Besides, Cas-Stunts gets the track title and author's name from the site and you can store that in your format of preference. On the other hand, the scoreboard is just a gadget and it will always be more comfortable to check it on the website, which also allows communication and navigation.
