I might be interested. Just got DBPRO and documentation is light. Could you give me a better idea of how detailed the manuals that came with DarkBasic are ? Especially the tutorial manual. I need all the step by step instructions I can find.

NOYB - Sure,

The User manual is 157 pages. Is starts off with programming principles like Datatypes, variables, arrays, functions and aritmetic etc. It goes onto using the DB editor and creating your first proggy, then it has a ( at the time ) complete reference with quite detailed explanations of the commands available in DB.

The tutorial manual ( 47 pages ) starts off by explaining some of the basics behind 3d, like object creation, camera movement, texturing and collision detection. It then explains about the Dark Basic 'matrix' - creating, texturing, walking on etc. It then moves on to how to create a full 3d game. It doesn't go through creating an actual game as such, but shows you HOW to create a complete game. This includes Loading objects, using the mouse to look in 3d, shotting bullets, sound effects, explosions, HUD, enemies shooting back etc.

The tutorial manual is very good as it gives you actual working code to demonstrate.

This boxed version comes with 2 cds. Dark Basic on one disc and demos and utilities on the other, includes 3d models and sounds etc.

Regards

Thanks for the information but I think I will stick with DBPRO docs for now. I've learned from other DB forums that your docs and mine are probably fairly similar. I've been working through the examples and online tutorials and am picking it up as I go. Supposed to get some kind of bonus with delivery of DBPRO manual in the mail. Maybe that will help. In the meantime, I'll just keep plugging along. Hope somebody writes a "Learn how to program in DBPRO" book soon! I'll be first in line!

Well, if no-one actually wants to 'pay' for it, they can have it for nothing!! Just pay for the postage and packing

I really don't want to throw it in the bin! It's what I used to start my programming on the PC.

Any offers???
