If you mean how you can change the behavior of the default control. as in before users can add their code to it. you can do that by opening the .bas file and adding the behavior there, under the events you would use. like the paint event or method. And then you compile it as shown in the tutorial, a...

You can use extra colors by setting blinking mode off which turns intensity on. which allows colors 9 through 15 to be used as background color. Here's a link to a microsoft article on the subject with sample QB code (which works with pds, vb-dos and qb 4.5 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/50945

you can use a ascii text editor (open command prompt, type edit...and enter.

there you can create your screen, with these codes already in it, and load it like a sequential file to display them.

it gets tricky if you want colors in them. :)

i'm not sure, but I tried this file, and aside some compilation errors, seems that the file compiles the file as expected.

What kind of OS are you using? which version? how much HD space and RAM does the computer that you are using have?

1.496E+08 is called the scientific notation. In this case it means that 1.496 * 10 ^ 8 which results in 149 600 000 million The number after E can also be a negative number 1.496E-08 which would mean 0.00000001496 Basically instead of displaying all the decimals like this they chose the 1.496 E+08 o...

LET EXP = 0
LET LEVEL = 1
IF EXP = 100 THEN LET LEVEL = LEVEL + 1
IF EXP = 300 THEN LET LEVEL = LEVEL + 1

if they are every 200 points like your example here, then you can just divide EXP by 200

LEVEL = (EXP / 200) + 100

shouold do the same as all your IF statements

it would probably help if you posted some code so we can situate ourself as to what you want to do... The method will change if you want to increase at regular intervales (every 50 points for example) or if you have variable set values. For example: if you want to increase every 100 points.

you're at liberty to use BASIC yes. ;). hehe

many seem to think that liberty basic is a good language for QB programmers to move to windows with. from teh syntax I've seen, it doesn't look to far off either. I haven't used it, but it does look like a good effort at least.
