COLOR is only for text/graphics displayed on the screen. When you write text to the file, it's just text--bytes of data that are decoded as ASCII characters. I have no idea how the word file format works, but one possible solution would be to have your program write HTML files. Have it write tags ar...

DOSBOX sucks! It slows down many programs. Use when desperate only! True, DOSBox slows stuff down. However, it actually emulates everything...an x86 cpu, graphics, multiple sound cards. etc. So the awesome thing is that you can use other versions of it (there's versions linux, MacOS, Solaris, etc) ...

First of all, Burger, this question is in the appropriate discussion forum. It is not news about Pete's QB Site. It is not News or Announcements. It is not a Question or Answer about QuickBASIC or FreeBASIC; I was asking if anyone knew of a free video capture program that runs under Windows but at t...

Video Capture

Does anyone know of a good, free video capture program that works with DOS programs? I'm running Windows XP and my QuickBASIC game only runs fullscreen. Any suggestions?

Not everyone agrees that OOP is the be all and end all but regardless of this QBasic, Freebasic and Qb64 are just trying to keep alive a language that gave a lot of people pleasure. Some enthusiasts keep steam railways alive,do you hate them in the same way that you hate us. If you have got such a ...

Do you seriously think that the people here use QuickBASIC because they don't know that it's old, outdated, doesn't have OOP, and isn't used in college classes? Do you seriously think that the people here who use QuickBASIC don't use other languages too? Programming with QuickBASIC is fun--that is w...

You don't need to start digging Freebasic. I would've posted in this topic earlier, but I figured someone would come along who could explain it better than me. There is a 64k limit per module, so you need to split your program into 2 or more modules, compile them into object files seperately, then l...

Just so you know, orgmatter, posting in all capitals is rude because all capitals in emails and forum posts means shouting. Just post in all lowercase if you don't feel like using the shift key anymore.

I don't know how to play one midi note. However, Qmidi seems pretty good as a library for playing midi files. The compact version doesn't add much code, and I tested it in a rather intensive application and I didn't see any performance impact. I don't don't know about RelLib though, so I can't say h...

I'm not exactly sure what you are shooting for, but try putting PLAY "MB" before the rest of your PLAY statements. That will make the notes play in the background while the program keeps executing.

In my experience, the best way to learn programming is to start some sort of project. In the process of trying to make it, you'll probably come up with some specific questions you can ask. Until then, just check out those tutorials.
