<p><strong>At Long Last: QB Express Issue #4!</strong> -- Posted by <a href="mailto:pberg1@ithaca.edu">Pete</a> on November 28, 2004<br>
After a 13-day delay, <a href="http://www.petesqbsite.com/sections/express/issue4/index.html">QB Express Issue #4</a> has finally been released! This is one truly bangin' issue, and I suggest you check it out IMMEDIATELY! <br> <br>This month's issue is bursting through the seams with great QB news, articles and tutorials. There's a great feature story on FreeBasic by Blitz, Nekrophidius tells us how to "Beat The XP Straightjacket", Piptol interviews QB gurus Na_th_an and Relsoft, Joe King lists off a few "Pointless" QB Points, and Adigun A. Polack is back once again with information on the QBCPC 2004/2005. <br> <br>As for tutorials this month, we've got a great selection: St?phane Richard teaches us how to manipulate sequential files, Relsoft is back with a sweet tutorial on Lens Flares, abionnnn teaches us about Pathfinding, Neo returns with QBNow! Chapter 5 and finally, we've got a special "lost tutorial" on Pixel*Tile Scrolling Engines by the king of RPGs himself, DarkDread. <br> <br>All this and more this in the November, 2004 issue of <b>QB Express</b>! <a href="http://www.petesqbsite.com/sections/express/issue4/index.html">Check it out!</a></p>

Well you definitaly outdid yourself. Just when I think QB Express #3 would be a classic, unbeatable, here you arrive with mind blowing issue that literally threw me right out of my house...pillows and all. ;-).

I've learned alot in this issue, as I always seem to...My QB past wasn't in games, so I've been learning about games, tiles, RPGs, engines, script languages you name it. 2D, 3D and the list goes on and on...and all that from QB Express mostly. Gave me the motivation to learn what was written and search the web for more of the these.

All this to say, Pete, you da man.....I've heard, from other issues, that QB needs magazines like yours, and as I read them all, as they are made available, I can't help but agree with them 100%.

QB Express ROCKS!!!

Big hand of applause for all involved.

That was a good read. :)

Although, you might want to change my contact email address... if it's sent to my hotmail one, I'll never see it, as it's just a spam trap (well that, and I use it for MSN... if anyone is bored, and wants to chat)... if you can, change it to this one: darkdread@funeralart.net

Cheers!

is it just me, or are there a load of broken images in this issue?

Looks good though, but I've barely scratched the surphace.

It's spelled surface, not like anyone will actually read this message.
