I wasn't referring to googling for qb.ini, I was referring to googling for the sourcecode to QB 4.5.

Sourcecode for QB has been available for awhile now. I'm not sure where to get it off the top of my head, but try doing a google search for it. It might offer some assistance.

TBN Forum Has Been Fixed

The TBN forum is now working smoothly again after the recent spam flooding. I had attempted to install a graphical verification script but it didn't seem to work as advertised and instead broke new registrations (which was fine for the time being, as it stopped the spammers cold, but didn't let any ...

I remember back in the "olden days", the trend was to create a QB site and host the same files that everyone else hosted. It was pathetic. Now, the trend is to make a QB site out of a forum. Also pathetic. At least the "we're making the best RPG in history!!!!!!!!11111111" QB site trend was bearable...

Yeah, 16 colors...hence why it supports 16 color BMP images :D but it already uses colors 16-23, and it fails on these chipsets. :(

Using "standard" palette methods don't work as they should. It seems the VGA registers ignore requests to modify the palette at certain values...so what I found I could do is use the second set of values (16 thru 31) and set it there, then remap the original 16 to the second set of 16. This doesn't ...

I noticed a problem with the BMP routines on our GF4MX4400 as well. The BMP routines make use of a special palette trick that might be unsupported on this particular nvidia chipset. It's very possible that enhanced textmode options were cut from the design of the MX series to reduce costs.

.frm files are standard ASCII files that can be viewed with a text editor. The first line of a .frm file has a version ident though, so you're not going to be able to, say, load a VB6 form into VBDOS, and you won't be able to load them at all into QB, as Neo stated. Your .frm files will have to be o...

The BMP routine is a strange beast...I already know that it does not work properly when windowed in XP, it needs to be run fullscreen from the very start (before you even run the EXE, it needs to be configured to run fullscreen). It's also possible that the techniques used for the BMPs aren't effect...

Oops, sorta missed the 2000 thing. Well, it makes no difference, as they both use the exact same NTVDM. XP = 2000 in a clown suit. :D

You're going to need a library anyways, as it requires the use of QB's default library. You'll need to look up interrupt 2Fh. If you're thinking about making a sound slave using the clipboard, then you might as well forget about it...the clipboard method is exceptionally slow. I used the technique f...

Sounds like you're using Windows XP. XP has a lot of problems running the QB IDE, especially with legacy floppy drives. Plasma made a "hack" of the IDE which fixes the floppy read problem though, you can find it on qbasicnews.com's forum. As far as the mouse goes...you're s.o.o.l. there...run it ful...
