I think you're doing a great job with QBE. There are those of us who sincerely appreciate all your efforts and contributions to the editing of the magazine, and we are not concerned with a few days or weeks delay.

FutureLib uses VESA, like ALL other QBASIC highresolution libraries. VESA is NO LONGER SUPPORTED by many video card drivers and vendors. Especially not by Microsoft.

You cant get SVGA working on windows XP universaly. You might get it to work on one computer, or two. Dont code in QBASIC if your target audience is using any system newer than DOS.
