Unless there is a wizard on this forum (there are a few actually), you will have to make peace, like me, that gwbasic and VBDos which i used no longer makes the grade. Even in Dosbox those programs wont run properly anymore.

But if you hang around here you will be amazed at what you pick up on this forum and today i laugh at what i once thought was my best work.

Good luck, but if i were you i will get creative with Firefly and you will be amazed at where that will take you!
