Introductions please
Since Andy is blitzing us with Blitz and I know nothing about Biltz and it's family can someone make introductions?

Can we have a download link as with SmallBASIC?

Do I want to download? probably because I see GUI and if it is faster with graphics than JB I am all ears. If it is doing 3D it must be lightning fast.

Dang, I could learn all this through Internet searches but information downloads are faster from friends who know what I need to know. I know some BASICs but not this one.

I see her, I am attracted, I need a wing man.

RE: Introductions please
She's still available, she's very coy, you need to create an account at blitz.com

Yup, you need to 1st create an account (free) - use the registration code 'FREEBLITZPLUS'. Once you have an account, login and goto the 'Account' tab, from there you
click on the 'Product Updates' tab. This is the page where the link for DL'ing BlitzPlus 1.47 is available.


Here's the link with instructions for the free download from the author of BlitzPlus.

BlitzPlus is 2D only. However, it has built in support for creating windows and GUI controls using event based programming commands. (Free) (Win Only)

Blitz3D is an older product that has all of the capabilities of BlitzPlus minus the GUI stuff (no event based programming), with easy to use 3D commands. (Free) (Win Only)

BlitzMax supercedes B2D and B3D in many ways and also supports OOP, although you can still write procedural code. It's main thrust was to introduce the OOP paradigm to Blitz Research products. Compiles to Win-Mac-Linux targets. (Free)

Monkey is the latest language from Blitz Research. It's totally geared for OOP and has the additional benefit of compiling to
HTML5, Windows, Mac, Linux (Maybe ARM too. ???) . It is a commercial product which needs to be purchased. ($)

RE: Introductions please
No probs bplus.

Please do try to fix the DirectPlay issue on your Win 10 system it will definitely be worth the small DL and install.

Although BlitzPlus is no longer developed, or maintained, it was a commercial product for over a decade. It's easy syntax, fast compiling, and fast executables will be sure to make the effort worth your while.

Cheers
