Hey Guys & Gals,

I have just started to use DarkBASIC Pro today and was following some online code but it wont change background color.

So first I tried this code and by changing the first set of number it does change the text color.
But changing the 2nd set of numbers does not change background color.
I always get the word Hello in whatever color i enter and its always on black background.
I thought the 2nd set was background color or at least thats what is said, Or am I doing something wrong?

INK RGB(255,255,0) , RGB(0,0,0)
Rem Print "Hello"

WAIT KEY
End


Next I tried this code againg trying to change background color but still it will not change.
It is only the text I can make change color and not the background it on.
What am I doing wrong or am I not correct that the background should change color as well?

This link is where it gives examples https://forum.thegamecreators.com/thread/177883 and also

set text transparent
ink rgb(255,255,255),rgb(23,110,30)
Text 0,0,"Hello World!"

WAIT KEY
End


Thanks in advance
Fred

You need to Set Text Opaque for background color to have an affect.
