I guess I am not welcome on this forum anymore? I was going to recommend some alternatives to using DOSbox as I also use DOSbox sometimes...

And my name has nothing to do with bongo drums. lol
Has to do with a video game.

The problem is most likely going to be with DOSbox which can be a pain to use, not Qbasic.

What OS are you using?

Does this BSAVE command apply to .bmp files? If I were to make a picture in ms-paint, how would I load that .bmp file?

This could be useful.

ummm.... Im sorry, but your site is HARD TO READ! I have seen it before and gave up on it really fast.

My advice would be to change the colors to something more eye friendly.

The background and text should always be light on dark or dark on light.

Wel, I am creating this mainly for practice as well as for personal use. Also I am including a special exit option for Windows users that does not shut down the computer, but simply exits. It is coming along quite well (for my 1st OS). I just got done adding new features, like the ability to drag ic...

My GUI is meant to run on a DOS machine or a 95 in DOS mode. This code will be placed at the part of the gui that saves its user made settings and shuts down. As long as it works in true DOS, it is perfect. I will create a break key or something that shuts down the GUI for people trying it in Windows.

DREAM16 OS - The new GUI in town! =] (UPDATE!!!)

Hello my fellow geeks! I am here to show you my latest program. I was messing around with some Qbasic GUIs last night and it kind of inspired me. I have always been amazed by Qbasic GUIs, so I thought I would make one! I have never made a GUI in Qbasic before or even used the mouse in my programs so...

Turn off computer

Does anybody have any assembly code that can be used to shut down the computer?

I am creating a mouse driven GUI called DREAM16 OS (which I will post about later) that needs this for its turn off computer option.

I will compile the code and load it from a DATA statement.

thanks.
