I am currently new to this. I am working on the tutorials. I am stuck with this command. When I run it, it is blank. Just a black screen with the mouse cursor in the middle. I need help please.

Welcome

Firstly...Wow! I haven't seen those screens since about 2002! I have had a sudden wave of nostalgia, it reminds me of when i first started with DarkBASIC.

Unless you have a reason to use DarkBASIC Classic and the original editor, you should use DarkBASIC Professional. It is at least 12 years more advanced than Classic, and in gaming terms this is a *HUGE* difference.

DBPro has been taken down for the moment while they prepare the new opensource version. But you can get a slightly older version here. By the time you have familiarised yourself with it, the latest version should be available again.

The newest game programming product is actually AGK.
