Hi folks,
Old basic for dos started with gwBasic.exe
You had to type in on the command line,
c:\gwbasic.exe game.bas
to get the game.bas to run.
A newer version was named basica.exe
and then
qbasic.exe which was what Jim's DOS games used.
All the basic programs could produce a executable if compiled with the correct switches .
I don't remember what they were.
Phil

They are written in basic and you will need an interpreter to run them. I
heard of a program called GWBasic a while back, but not sure if it still
exists or is being developed.

After Michael asked about these it got me curious and I downloaded and tried
them.

I assumed that sinse they said they ran with doss, there would be a file I
could run under the console in windows to play the game, such as an exe, com
or bat file, but there are none of those around in the folders, just a bas
file which does nothing when I try to open it.

Are these completely un runnable under windows? and if so, any chance of
making them runnable?

I just rather fancy the idea of single player adventure games, ----- maybe
lewie could fix these the way he did with the great escape, which is
deffinately fun.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.
