oki, i've been contacted by another newbie today which makes almost 30 in 2days ... well due to this they all appear to ask the same kind of questions.

and especially conserning DB Pro, which they're not sure where to start with such little help.
now DG has recently noted about a book when he learns more, so actually this has me thinking
Right now the examples and such for DB are good, but perhaps a few of the users her can band together and between us all we can come up with a full FAQ for all the DarkBasics.

Also been wondering about redeveloping a help file for Ciyanna's DarkBasic language pack which covers all three versions. Just wondering, WHAT would any of you like to see within this?
What functions, data types, 3d aspects, 2d aspects, mathematical aspects and such explained...

ofcourse there will be a function overveiw, with a small description - but there is to be a section of tutorials and such then perhaps it would be good to think about what the more advanced things people would like to see.
and remember anyone who thinks i'll just write out word for word exactly what to do to create it then think again.

get 21 days to program within C++ by Samms, cause that is more to be the style of the tutorials
but lemme know what you think and want

well personally eitherway i look at it, our job or not - there is a still a VERY large need for this kinda thing.

now on the part of Ciyanna - if you don't know exactly what it is then thats cool. I'm aware right now that there are some people eagerly anticipating what Ciyanna will bring to the DarkBasic, BlitzBasic and Modification Communities alike.
Soon alot more will be revealed between now and March

one thing is for sure once the current version is done, it'll certainly change how games development teams online work together!

The only thing miffing me (in scottish accent like smartie from Citizen Kabuto) is how to get the bloody icon on the exe from within DBPro's editor.

on the right bottom corner if you have the project manager out just click on icons... O_O but dbpro seems to mess mine up so just get something like icon forge or michelangelo (sp?)...

he has a point... everytime i add a cursor or an icon, in either native or Bitmap formats they never add they just crash dbpro's editor.

and if you add them manually the editor doesn't like that when it loads
however strangly enough if i add them with Ciyanna and compile they work fine
