PCU2 Posted August 20, 2022 Share Posted August 20, 2022 (edited) I apologize in advance if I do anything wrong here; this is my first post on my first forum account..lol About a week ago I started revisiting the current homebrew scenes for old consoles, and was pleasantly surprised by the wealth of information and positive atmosphere that exists for the Intellivision! I revisited my old model 2 and after playing a few games and seeing some of the homebrew videos available on YouTube, I really felt the urge to try and learn coding through Oscar's IntyBasic language. I planned to purchase both of his books on the subject, but figured I would use GRay Defender's video walk-through of the first two chapters before I committed. So that leads to the current issues I'm facing: 1.) When copying files into the "intybasic" folder, "SDL.dll" and "libwinpthread-1.dll" don't appear in the latest download of JZINTV (as1600 and jzintv were both present) -went ahead and tried to continue following the video anyway- 2.) Opened up my notepad (text editor in Linux I'm running) and wrote the hello world program down, but when I try to compile said program (hello.bas hello.asm), I receive the error of "intybasic: command not found". I admittedly lack much of any prior experience with programming. I took (and passed!) a C++ intro class in college, but felt lost the entire time. As much as I love the nerd culture, I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to this aspect of it. I really would like to give this foray into IntyBasic my best shot, though I do wonder how much hand-holding it will take before I build a solid foundation... Anyway, if anyone with a bit of free time feels like teaching the greenie, I'd greatly appreciate it! Edited August 20, 2022 by PCU2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
