What! all that typing and only half of my post shows up! Does this page look weird to everyone alse or is it just me?

Anyway, I said www.progar.com is another good site, and probably something else that I can''t remember right now

If you want some more qb sites or some specific help, you can talk to me through icq

QBASIC is awesome to start out with. Get familiar with it.. write some games. Remember that you can program games with any language, but only some of them have the ability for you to access hardware registers such as in your video card.. and you can do it with QBASIC with a DEF SEG and a poke!.. it''s just awesome =)

QBasic is alright, but once you get the hang of it, you start wanting a more flexible language. Uhm...Try and find QB 4.5 or better.
Its out there. Its a LOT better than 1.1 or whatever DOS used to come with. You can compile your own EXEs, etc.
After QB I recomend a old DOS C/C++ compiler thats well documented. After that, well...once you know C and basic, you are pretty much set. I recomend after the DOS C compiler a modern C++ compiler; Borland C++ bulder or VC++ 6. You can get VC++ 6 for around 100 bucks in places.(chepeast edition)
Personally, I have QB 4.5 and QB 7.1, a array of Pascal compilers which I NEVER use, QuickC 2.5, VB5, VC++ 5, and VC++6(intro ed).
