You can SHELL links and Windows will open them, but forget making a browser man. QB was made well before the web was a big thing!

Amazingly, it allows a lot of stuff that even Windows has problems with.
But M$ wants to get rid of DOS to make more money!

SHELL "cmd /c start" 'XP or NT code

Well, instead of creating a whole new thread I thought I'd just post my question here :P

Is it possible to create an online multiplayer game in Qbasic? Like WoW or Unreal Tournament. (WITHOUT using the modem?)
