Making your first Dark Basic Pro program takes barely a few keystrokes. Start up DBP and you should be presented with this:. This is just a header and because the text is Green we can tell it doesn't do anything at all. You don't need to worry about it just yet. First, go up to the taskbar at the top of Dark Basic and click the menu marked ' Compile' and select ' Compile and Run'.

At the start of we decided to open source DarkBasic Professional and give it to the community to evolve and control. We're still in the process of sorting out the source code and preparing it to be fully open source and ready to go. We expect to have more details mid-February. You can read more about this process in the forums HERE. It was easy to use and it started many a young programmer on their journey into the game business.
But you also get the lower-level control and extras you would expect from a Professional language. There are an increased range of Data Types, a far more advanced 3D Engine with low level access to Object data. You can utilise vector and matrix manipulation via the 3D Maths commands and many other advanced features that are there if you need them.
DarkBASIC Professional will grow with you as you learn new development skills and extend your 3D knowledge, so you can unlock the benefits of the more advanced areas of the language. We frequently updated the product and it grew to include many powerful game making features.

Welcome to DarkBASIC
Anyone who has at least minimal experience with a computer can use DarkBASIC to create quality presentations, demonstrations, simulations, and even games. There are so many things to talk about that I want to jump in and explain all of them right away, but this chapter should give you a solid introduction that will prepare you for the chapters to come. DarkBASIC is a language that makes programming fun and intuitive, and allows you to write intense graphics programs quickly and easily, without any formal knowledge or training. It is the perfect choice for prototyping software and creating presentations, product demonstrations, and yes—games! DarkBASIC completely hides the details and takes care of all the difficult work behind the scenes, allowing you to focus on what the program needs to do rather than how to do it. It is a professional-grade compiler with an integrated development environment that lets you write, load, and save the source code that makes up programs, and then compile it into standalone executable programs that run in Windows and use DirectX. This book focuses on teaching you how to be a programmer, first and foremost.
