Game not running under DosBox
Hi all,
I am trying to run this qb game:
http://ziel.tripod.com/qbziel.html

Under QB64 it fails.
I tried also with DosBox + QB 7.1 but still I can't succeed..
If someone does, please let me know..
Thanks in advance!

Sorry, I have noticed now that there is also the .exe along with the other files..
And it works!! Big Grin
Still, if someone succeeds in running inside a QB, please let me know!
Bye,
Pierre

RE: Game not running under DosBox
Teutoburgo,

I found the problems. First, QB64 does not accept colons in TYPE structures. You need to remove the colons from lines 106-130.

Also, QB64 does not support the FRE() function. So you will need to comment out (either with "REM" or "'") line 2031 to get the game to work.

It runs fine in QB64 after those modifications.

RE: Game not running under DosBox
Pierre,

You are very welcome!

On a side note, I try to treat everyone with respect and kindness, regardless of ideas, personal opinions, religious beliefs, gender, color, nationality, and so on. There are two things I try not to talk about, especially online, and they are religion and politics. I do not care what piece of ground someone originates from (continent, country, state, county, city, location, or even planet), because the way I look at it, we all share the same planet, solar system, galaxy, and big bang bubble. All I want to do is get along with each other.

I do not talk about religion with anyone, because there are over 4,300 recognized religions on this planet, and there are new ones popping up all the time.

I try not to talk about politics with anyone as it is a complex subject and there is no way for me to get all the facts about it and the people for me to make a decent argument.

However, I love computer programming, and I want to share my love for it with the rest of the world. It is something I understand and I know enough to make great arguments when need be.
