My friend has a bunch of stuff in QBasic but it runs too fast. Anyone know how to slow it down?

A klugey language demands klugey constructs.

FOR I = 1 TO 10000
NEXT I


How appropriate. You fight like a cow.

you can use qb''s timer to slow the program down by a certain degree (it''s only 18 ticks per second though).

delay! = .1
t1! = TIMER
DO
t2! = TIMER
LOOP WHILE t2! - t1! < delay!

Is that code going to run? (haven''t done this in a while)

Anyway, that should delay the program for 1/10th of a second but you can only really go up to 1/18th of a second without using a better timer (search the web for a timing lib for qb). You won''t be able to use libs unless you have version 4.5 or above.

Hmmm... I have a suggestion: don''t use QBasic.
