    Resolved [RESOLVED] Quick Basic/QBasic/VBDos - WIDTH statement question

    Quick Basic has the WIDTH statement which you can use to set the number of character columns and rows for a given screen mode. As to my question: I want to set the number of rows to 60 using the standard VGA graphics mode. Something you can do in Quick Basic as follows:

    Code:
    SCREEN 12
    WIDTH , 60
    However, I would like to know what the WIDTH statement is doing on a low level to set the number of rows. The closest piece of information I could find on the subject is:

    The QB64 people might be a better bet.
    By the power invested in me, all the threads I start are Niya and Olaf free zones - no arguing about the benefits of VB6 over .NET here please. Happiness must reign.

    Qb64.org has disabled their registration... :-( I reposted the question at the DOSBox forums. Someone, especially someone involved with developing DOSBox graphics emulation should be able to help out.

    Gosh! What a way to handle spam... I wonder how long it has been like that? I would have posted it for you on QB64 forum but I deleted my account. They are a strange crowd there. They do, however, have a discord server and facebook account that you could also try.

    @yereverluvinuncleber:

    Discord? I hadn't thought of that. Thanks! I got my question answered btw: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=83785 - This means I should mark this thread as "resolved".
