Fucking websites with no credit card and no upgrades

At the time, I thought Quick BASIC was more or less indistinguishable from magic.

I could write simple code and compile it into an .exe, put it on a floppy, and give it to somebody else to run on their own machine.

That meant that not only could I run my old code within the IDE, but I could actually compile it into a binary for my Linux desktop.

I don’t own a Windows computer anymore, but with WINE I was able to run the Windows version of QB64 and compile an that I could give to my friends who are still living in the dark ages.

The programming languages are worlds more capable than the plodding BASIC variants of the 80’s and 90’s.

But still, when I found a floppy full of programs I wrote decades ago, I couldn’t help but wonder about getting them running again.

When I got my first computer, a second hand 386 running MS-DOS 6.22, I didn’t have an Internet connection.

But I did have Quick BASIC installed and a stack of programming magazines the local library was throwing out, so I had plenty to keep myself busy.

Note that the core source code itself is more or less the same, I’m just interleaving it with the ability to load and display external files. I didn’t write this to try and convince anyone to jump on a programming language that peaked before many of our readers were even born.

You can even use QB64 to compile Quick Basic code into an Android application, though there’s considerable hoops to jump through and it currently only works on Windows.

This might be lost on those who never wrote BASIC code on a vintage machine, but the following code creates a 800×600 screen, puts a full screen PNG up, plays an MP3, and writes a message using a True Type font.

' Init screen SCREEN _NEWIMAGE(800, 600, 32) ' Load files menubg& = _LOADIMAGE("splash.png") menufont& = _LOADFONT("font.ttf", 30) theme& = _SNDOPEN("theme.mp3", "SYNC, VOL") ' Set theme volume, start playing _SNDVOL theme&, 0.3 _SNDPLAY theme& ' Load font _FONT menufont& ' Show full screen image _PUTIMAGE (0, 0), menubg& ' Say hello PRINT "Hello Hackaday!

" As a comparison, this Quick Basic tool for simply displaying a JPEG image clocks in at 653 lines of code.

As it turns out, transparent PNGs and the ability to display proper fonts makes things a lot easier.
