Viny wants to learn how to VCS

Do you have any that can answer my question?

This is the definitive reference for batari Basic:

It's more a reference than a tutorial, but there are links to tons of sample programs. Play around with those, and ask any questions you may have here if you get stuck, or if you have any more specific questions about bB.

Hey Viny I am no where as skilled as Karl G is at coding but I love Batari Basic and I'm always happy to show others what I've learned. Feel free to inbox me for tips.

 

The RT page he suggested is almost 100% what I've used in addition to asking polite questions in the forums and using these sample programs which are CRUCIAL:

Also; As a noob my advice to you is 1) IGNORE ANYTHING RELATED TO DPC+ (at first. It's much harder to learn than the STANDARD kernel, but the STANDARD kernel first WILL help you to graduate to DPC+ later) and 2) Ignore DATA TABLES and CONSTANTS (at first).

 

Learn the basics- how to draw sprites, make them one solid color, move them around. etc..

 

Love your avatar btw. Atari needs a Bubble Bobble!
