Oh, I would imagine that would be a major undertaking for any game
developer. The differences between VB 6 and VB .Net are quite
sugnificant. For a developer that knows both it wouldn't be so much
difficult as totally time consuming. Unfortunately, for a developer
like Jim Kitchen he doesn't know VB .Net at all. In fact, he has said
before that he doesn't understand object oriented programming and
design which is necessary to program in any of the .Net languages as
they are all object oriented. That would be quite a problem.
I know back in 2006 after I got James North's source code for
Montezuma's Revenge it took me about three months to convert the
source from VB 6 to C# .Net. Since I know both languages it wasn't
difficult, but was time consuming to convert it from one language to
Now, assuming a developer converted ten games, taking three months to
complete each, that is 30 months of work. That's more than two years
of work just for ten games. Jim Kitchen has a lot more than that. I'd
say that would be like three or four years of work minimum to convert
all of his games to VB .Net.
