Hello, I'm currently a newbie to Batari Basic and Visual bB for the Atari 2600 and had only begun to set up both programs. I installed both Batari Basic 1.5 and Visual bB build 568. So far according to the Windows 10 installation method I had extracted both zipped files and placed them together in a folder labeled "Atari2600". From there I launched the Visual bB configuration wizard and ran the install_win batch file. From there I am able to launch the Visual bB however I get error windows claiming to be script errors. I'm able to skip or ignore these messages and go into the program, from there everything appears to work as normal and I'm able to compile my code which at the moment has only been a playfield. When I test my code in the built in emulator, I'm then presented with an error regarding the file which will not allow me to run the code. Could I have possibly made an error while installing both programs or made an error with the configuration wizard? Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
Finally, I've managed to make a VisualbB installation wizard, replacing Tinkernut's. I've put the new version of visualbB in it, and this is made with the Inno Setup program. If there are any bugs or unknown things it should not be doing, let me know and I'll fix it. You can get it at https://www.mediafire.com/?38pxw0885565x77 EDIT: I've made it with Inno Setup, it's the link. I'm going to update the installer every time VisualbB updates.
I've recently decided to make a joke Atari game in my free time. Problem is, I don't want to spend weeks or even months learning Assembly when chances are either A. I'm not going to finish the game B. It's going to be some joke game that lasts about 30 minutes. This is the most likely outcome as the working title for the game is "Epic Funny Meme Game". If that doesn't give you a clue as to how unfunny it's going to be I don't know what will. So I've done some digging and found "VirtualBB", a software that allows you to program Atari games through BASIC. So far I've found a few tutorials for it, and I can confirm that the software does indeed work. However, I can't find any complete tutorials for it, and from what I've heard the programming for Atari is much deeper then just displaying images and spawning missiles. Is there any tutorials that are actually complete that I can use? BASIC tutorials work fine but I'd prefer would that's specifically for the programming so I can follow along with it (I'm more of a visual learner.)
