Hi!

Does anyone know if there are any extensions available for QBAsic
or QuickBasic for increasing the resolution?. 640x480 becomes a bit
small...

That doesn't make any sense. Increasing the resolution to, say, 800x600 will
make everything look even smaller.

    Or of course you could just keep everything small and have a ton of space to
work with...

However, if you were to increase the resolution, you could keep your
images the same size, via scaling, and also have room to make them
smoother.  That's is an advantage... even though it would be slightly
slower than working with, say, 640x480, or even 320x240.

  Get Euphoria. It supports up to 1024x768x256 colors natively, as well
 as 32,000 colors with a small add-on library. It also runs graphics up
 to 20x faster than Basic. A free public-domain verion is available to
download: http://members.aol.com/FilesEu

I know you can get SVGA libs which allow up to 1024 * 768 * 256 but I'm
not sure where.
www.zephyrsoftware.com or something...
maybe searching for zephyr would find something
oh well, hope that helps!
