    Have you considered asking Thomas Gohel? He did the PB translation.

    Newer display adapters don't always fully support DOS graphics modes.
    An illegal function call at a PUT hints that there may be a hardware
    compatibility issue involved.

        Guess "serious" Windows programmers don't mess with "shoot'em-up - Gobble'em up DOS stuff
        Why not?

        I always say there are two types of programmers...

        1. "Systems" programmers... generally have totally mastery of all functions, never need to use the help file to remember the syntax and options for a function call, know all the APIs to use to do 'neat hardware tricks.' Tend to have huge code libaries, but absolutely zero of it can be #INCLUDE'd without some kind of tweaking. Tend to have large percentage of code libraries in '90% finished' status.

        2. "Applications" programmers. Actually create useful software. Use the help file. Code libraries tend to be smaller, but everything #INCLUDE's without modification. Create fewer programs, but all are 100% complete.

        Game programmers are applications programmers - they produce finished goods.

        Applications programmers will tell you systems programmers are the guys who couldn't cut it in applications.

        Systems programmers will tell you applications programmers are the guys who couldn't cut it in systems.

        But neither applications nor systems programmers can really live without the other.

            Actually, there are 10 types of programmers: those who understand binary, and those who don't.
