I would be willing to compile and document and write the sort of tutorial you guys are thinking about. My background is not in programming however, it is in writing/grammar so it might be useful to have someone do it who a) is learning alongside the reader and b) has background in explaining difficult things simply.

I like the idea of providing a resource for novice programmers interested in game design to come and learn advanced techniques. I thought the idea of using the FBGD games directory as source samples was phenomenal.

Not quite, but I never really explored the language. As far as I can tell it's another way to interface with Windows, and when compiled runs at speeds that rival more "advanced" languages. It's also extremely powerful, not only because of built-in capabilities but also because of the way it allows users to extend the language using subs, in effect inventing new commands. For example, I found ways to round off numbers, to keep calculations within a certain range, to center text on the screen, and so on. Not bragging; that's pretty simple stuff.

What I'm saying is this: FreeBASIC, like the original BASIC, is a way for us ignorant folks to write powerful and useful programs in relatively simple language using everyday English. FB is the collaborative work of many people, in many countries, over many years.

And it's beautiful.

Hi I am new...
I have seen GladToBac that can convert Glade to freebasic code.
Anyone has tried?

Hi, welcome to the forum!

Just do a forum search (note the 'e' in the program name):

search.php?keywords=GladeToBac

GladeToBac does not convert code. Instead it auto-creates/updates FreeBASIC code for a previously designed user interface (UI), keeping track of the callback functions and the named widgets. So once you have a UI designed (and writen to a .ui-file) in Glade, GladeToBac creates the matching FB code for running that UI and handling the relevant widgets.
