Where can I find what is essentially smilebasic for Pc?

  • #1 ✎ 18 Wuulf Minecraft Is Awesome! I love Minecraft! Express Yourself Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength Id like to see if there are any alternatives to citra to have smilebasic on pc. I have heard of otyaSMILEBASIC but I have heard that it's vanished. If anyone could help me with finding any alternatives that would be great. Any amount of help would be appreciated Posted Edited by Wuulf
  • #2 ✎ 212 seggiepants Sorry, the closest language on PC is probably QB64, and that is trying to be a QuickBasic/QBasic clone. They are both BASIC dialects but have some significant differences. One of which is how graphics are done and of course it has no media included. The best course of action is actually to learn a different programming language that is better supported on PC. After you learn one programming language it gets easier to pick up other ones. Two beginner friendly ones would be Lua with Love for graphics or Python and use Pygame for graphics. I think there are some Lua coders on the site, and the harvard cs50 introduction to game programming course on youtube uses it. Python is more respected and should be put on a resume if you learn it well. Of course if you want other people to play your games you may want to look at Javascript and maybe a library like Phaser. There is also P5JS which has a web editor and is used in the Coding Train videos on youtube. People are reluctant to download binaries anymore for fears of malware. Javascript is also good for a resume. If you are advanced there is C/C++, which has several graphics libraries such as SDL or SFML. There are also game engines like Godot, Unity, or Unreal. If you want to make something for a phone maybe Swift for Apple and Kotlin/Java for android. There is always new stuff to learn in programming which can be both wonderful and terrifying. Posted

Hobbies Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself You could try fantasy consoles like PICO-8 and TIC-80. I'm pretty sure TIC is free and on android and PC. They're kinda like smilebasic but more like a cartoony PC. They use LUA and it's a pretty easy language to use. Other than that, you've got the suggestions above that will run on your PC as a normal program, rather than on your PC in a fantasy console. Posted
