Does your *.COM file packer have to alter how the *.COM file terminates? I am not fluent in 8086 (80686) ASM, and I've seen various exit, RETF commands RETN commands, that are the last thing before exiting a *.COM vs the last thing before exiting a ASM routine in QB, especially if passing variables....

Once I made a program that would count from 1 to 8, Do Re Me, then it would look for random jumps of 2 or 3 up or down from that note, so it would play harmonies off the scale. It would count, playing Do Re Me Fa So La Ti Do, but instead of playing those notes, it might play.. Mi Fa Mi Re.. and so o...

NOTE: if you run the program in a DOS Window, you have to hit ALT-ENTER to go FULLSCREEN to see the effect of the program. Otherwise it will override the blink function of a DOS text screen, and you won't see the effects of the program running. Press CTRL-BREAK or CTRL-C or CTRL-SCROLLLOCK to exit t...

Call ScrnSave( You can't call ASM language by the name of the routine. You have to use MASM to take that routine that's the *.ASM file, get it into hex values, then do something similar to what I did above, and run it, using CALL ABSOLUTE() ~Kiyote! I have a perfect example to illustrate this. Will...

This won't work, if you were to copy & paste into the QBasic IDE. You have to either load values of assembly language into memory from DATA statements, or BLOAD a binary file with the ASM code into memory that way. You can't insert ASM code written out like that for something like MASM to compil...

If you're going to do Windows type stuff in QB, you're going to have to draw the boxes on the screen yourself, round the corners yourself, and make it react to the user's clicks on the screen. All in all, hard to grasp at first, but not hopeless. ~Kiyote! REM LITTLE CUTE PROGRAM IN QBASIC TO DRAW RE...

If you want it to rewrite your formula into it's other forms, then you're going to have to write a formula parser, something that can take the text of the expression you're writing, and be able to re-write it using rules of algebra. If you want it to solve the expression for answers, you can use a F...

It's good that he's trying to figure out a algo on his own to do it.
You can do it on paper with a calculator. Some people forget how.

@rehashing QBasic for today's users [NEWS]

Dear QBasic hard core users. I wanted to give you guys an awesome heads up. If you really want to make your QBasic programs shine, instead of worrying about XP or Vista or Win7 or Win8, why not do this. Get a Mac. Get DOSBOX for the Macintosh. Run QBasic under a Macintosh flavored DOS emulation. One...

problem with posting

with every forum I go to, I always select all copy before I click submit, so I can re-post quickly if there is a glitch.

Also, somehow on this forum, if you get that glitch, you can hit the back button and it sometimes has all your text there in the typing area and you can resubmit..

font example

To do fonts easily, dump an ascii table from a DOS window with the font set to what you want. Then screen capture it, convert it to a BMP, then use the BMP decoding code to save the font data as bit patterns. If you want to work with *.BMP's, I recommend only working with 24-bit BMP's. There is a si...
