Title: Hello there
Post by: Kackurot on December 29, 2009, 10:32:34 PM
 Saying hello to all my old qb buddies, if they are still around that is  :). Site brings back memories, I see you guys have a new IDE (qb64), last time I browsed here, there was FreeBasic. Anyone still working on win95 and using qb4.5? Anyway, saying my hellos. Hey Wildcard, is Relsoft still around??

Hi there -- welcome back!

Believe it or not I still have an old win95 machine with QB45 in a back room.  Haven't turned it on in several months though.

QB64 is an IDE for a brand new compiler that will compile Qbasic & QB45 code, and has some nice additional commands.

It's nice to see you around here again!

 Yeah, nice to see things progressing on. Nice to see QB up grading nicely. I wonder if anyone has plans on making QB portable to consoles  8). Like QB360 lol :) Haha, I might think of making a project like that, to get away from c++ and 3d engine coding. Anyway, so Dav, what have you been up to programming wise? Any serious projects?

Nothing big.  I've started a lot of programming projects, but never seem to finish them.  The only coding I've been doing lately is web design (working of 3 sites atm), and a few command line tools for some personal tasks.  Most of my personal projects are now away from programming, in the music industry.

I've found a few cool game making programming packages (like RPG maker, GameMaker) and if I can get enough time I'd like to try my hand at of of those and make an oldschool adventure game like Kings Quest.

Hi, welcome back. Nice to see an old familiar name. Relsoft hangs around freeBASIC forums but not sure if he is still regular there, I think he has been busy.

I know SJ_Zero (I think) managed to port freeBASIC to Xbox original, I don't think he has been around since then though.

I don't code much these days except for some php/sql. QB64 is an interesting project. I'm looking at redoing the site to take into account QB64/freeBASIC.

What have you been up to?

been job hunting for a while, got laid of a bit ago. Just been writing 2d game engine using C++ that will work on iphone/windows/linux etc. Its called Spiral, been trying to make the code generic as possible by making the engine into components. Also I have been messing around with C# XNA, to learn a bit of C# since I might be getting a job using it. Other wise, I just play a bit of Quake live and other random online games. My tag is 'TheOne' in quake if you wanna look me up.
