Guest The_Swordalizer Posted April 5, 2005 Share Posted April 5, 2005 I have never tried any kind of coding since using BASIC on the ZX Spectrum, but about a week ago I downloaded NI, IEEP, Cromwells Smithy, WeiDU and DLTCEP. After initally being slightly baffled I have now got to the stage where I can create items and creatures, code dialogue (Hurrah!), script (Double Hurrah!) and have created my very own NPC! however, I see plenty of references to hex values. I have seen them in NI and have a basic idea of what they are (They describe where in a file a certain piece of information is located), but adding, subtracting and finding them is a mystery. I have looked at the default Windows Calculator in hex mode but none of the sums seem to work (One example: A tutorial states "Add 0x0000008 to 0x1000000 in hex will give you 0x1000008". Not on the windows calculator in hex mode it doesn't! there isn't even an x button). Can anyone point me to an Idiots Guide to counting in hex? Link to comment
