  • Converting VB to PB

    I have a chess program written in VB that I can not convert to PB
    I have tried both VB2PB and V2PB2 without any success. It is a
    German program called Minimax. Can anyone help or has anyone
    done the conversion already.
    Thanks

      Since this is the PB/DOS forum, I'd assume VB-DOS==>PB-DOS.

      But.. I cannot find either referenced program (VB2PB and V2PB2) in the "examples" directory supplied with PB/DOS.

      Maybe the publishers of those programs can help?

        (VB2PB and VB2PB2)

        Both programs came with both versions of my PB 3.0 and 3.5. There
        is even a program that is suppost to convert 'C' programs into
        PB in list of supplied things. There also used to be a CD that
        you could purchase with hundred of user submitted programs on it.
        They just don't work for me.

          I made a mistake the program is QB2PB AND QB2PB2 not visual basic

            Can you be more specific than "they don't work"? What seems to be
            the problem?

              When using the old QB2BP under pb.30 it created a new program
              but when I go into the new program I get all kinds of errors that
              I don't know what to do with them.
              When using the new QB2PB2 version, it does not work with either
              of my PB's.
              I know it has to be with the way the different basics do different
              operations, but I am at a loss to know the difference and to
              correct them.

                  William, without seeing the error codes / messages and possibly the source code, it will be very hard helping you .

                    Karl,

                    Code:
                    SUB PgCopy ( BYVAL FromPage AS INTEGER,_
                                 BYVAL ToPage AS INTEGER )       PUBLIC
                    
                       DIM VP_ptr(7) AS STRING PTR * 4000
                       DIM P AS LOCAL INTEGER
                    
                       IF (pbvScrnCard AND 1) = 1 THEN EXIT SUB '-- mono adapter
                       IF FromPage% = ToPage% THEN EXIT SUB
                       IF FromPage% < 0 OR FromPage% > 7 THEN EXIT SUB
                       IF ToPage% < 0 OR ToPage% > 7 THEN EXIT SUB
                    
                       VP_ptr(0) = pbvScrnBuff    '-- Pointer to the video buffer
                       FOR P% = 1 TO 7            '-- Pointer to the other 7 pages
                          VP_ptr(P%) = VP_ptr(P%-1) + &H01000000
                       NEXT
                       @VP_ptr(ToPage%) = @VP_ptr(FromPage%)
                    
                    END SUB
