Hi Thomas,

I also have and used a wav file player named sox.  They must have also made a 
dos version.  But all that we did was use the Basic shell command to shell out 
and play the wav file.  It worked and was great to be able to add wav files to 
our games, but as you can imagine shelling out was not exactly congruent to 
smooth continuous game play.  But that was part of the fun.  You know figuring 
out how to make a good game and blend in that shelling out to play sounds.  I 
was writing my games in PDS7.  That is Microsoft Professional Development 
System version 7.  Also known as Extended Quick Basic.  That golf game was 
though written in GW Basic by a PC Users group from Pittsburgh.  I also wrote 
in GW Basic, BasicA, QBasic, Quick Basic 3.0 and Quick Basic 4.5.  And 
Microsoft Extended Basic for the TI 99 4A and Atari home computers.  Oh yeah 
and wrote a couple of little games for my Dad on his TRS80 in whatever Basic 
that was.



I like Visual Basic 6.0 because I can not C.
