Try it again, if it still goes blank then try the other version, which has a slightly different screen resolution.

Try both.  On some computers only one version works.

BTW, has anyone spotted the Easter Egg yet?

@aslate - that'd be great!  :)

QBasic, the archaic software that only I use.

Is it possible to exit WinXP and start the game from MS-Dos?

WinXP - the "X" makes it sound much cooler than it actually is...

I use XP Pro, and it works ok. Have you tried "Compatability Mode" if you're getting problems?

Right-Click, Properties, Select a previous OS (Say 98).

I remember somebody having a problem with my Formula 1 game, that it wouldn't work on XP either.  However I think they found a way to get it to work.

Hopefully that PEELer will post and tell us what they did.

XP Professional, works fine here.

Great work, Fred. I like how you win more in a winning game than you lose to your opponent in a losing game.  ;)

Hmm, that rises an interesting point - I was planning on getting XP Home with my new computer, now perhaps I'll -sorry, get my dad to- shell out a bit more and get the Pro version.

Like I said before, great fun - but no I haven't found the easter egg yet!  :confused:

Anyone want to tell me what the difference is between XP Home and XP Pro?

Just a wild thought - what's the lowest screen resolution available to an XP Home computer?

Greetings!
I would like to discuss the possibility of teaming up with you to create an animated Poker Game for the PC...please email me at karcreat@icehouse.net, and take a look at my artwork (www.karcreat.com) so you can get an idea of what I do... ;)

Thanks!!

Fun stuff, but aces only seem to count as 1 and never 11.

They count as 11 if you have 21.

It worked great for me, and I have XP home. I have great admiration for anyone with the patience to program an entire game in Qbasic. Especially for a game that's really good. There is one problem- maybe you did this on purpose- if you hit the D key, it gives you a new hand. So, if you keep on tapping D, yoiu eventually get a hand of 21.

Hi, everyone.  Thanks for all your comments.  It's nice to know people still like this game.  :)

@hitman - According to the Properties on the original .BAS file, it took just over a month. (July-August 2003)

@hobojobo - The "D" button was originally inserted as a programming aid, but I left it in as a sort of cheat mode.

BTW, has anyone spotted the Easter Egg yet?

@Kevin - Thanks for the offer of a collaberation, but I'm afraid I'll have to decline, for several reasons.  First of all, I'm currently in the middle of a huge Futurama-related project.  I've been working on it since April, and at the rate it's going, I'll probably still be working on it well into 2007.  In addition, I've already promised to collaberate with someone else on another Futurama project once we've completed the ones we're currently working on.  In short, I'm gonna be busy.

Also, I'm guessing that your idea involves incorporating your artwork into the game, in which case it's probably outside the scope of what's doable with QBasic.  QBasic only has a 640*350 resolution, not to mention a 16 colour palette.  My advice would be to (if possible) find someone who's fluent in more advanced programming language.

Fred! I thought you were dead!  :eek: (the power of rhyme compels you)

This'll combine my two two interests - gambling and losing money to a computer!

Yay, losing money to something so-called "less intelligent" than yourself is great!
