Sites Change Face
(1/19/2000) The new year has arrived,
and a lot of our affiliates have made some major changes. Here's how our
QB comrades made their sites Y2K compliant.
Nightwolf easily made the most changes
on his site! First of all, Nightwolf changed the site name from "Nightwolf
Productions" to the newly formed "Programming Oasis". The site has been
totally revamped and it now covers all programming languages, including
C++ and Pascal. There's even Web Design tutorials, strangely in Dutch.
Navigation through the site takes a little more to get used to, but the
Oasis seems to be a lot faster than it's predecessor. It's not a 100% Quickbasic
site anymore, but you still get the interviews, and the invincible QB Times.
Another site with a major transformation.
Darkness Ethereal, the company responsible for Distant Promises and Secret
of Cooey 2 (among many others), have changed the layout of their site to
cater their growing adherence to the RPG field. They've also hooked up
to the Top 10 RPG maker's sites, which means that Darkness Ethereal is
representing QBRPGs for all of us. Help 'em out by voting for 'em!
I'm not clear on all the details about
this site, but somehow Quickbasic.net is splitting up. Apparently there
was some ripping scandal going on within this site, and as a result Quickbasic.net
is going down and may possibly be replaced by a site that covers all programming
Pete's popular gaming site was recently
hacked! As a result, Pete may be packing his bags and moving to a whole
new server sometime. According to the site, Pete may move his files around
Because of its growing popularity, Simply
QBasic has been added to the list of QB affiliates here at V Planet. Simply
QBasic is most noted for being one of the most reputable download sites
on the net, with up to 720+ downloads. Plus, they have a Quickbasic News
Section called QNN which is updated mighty often. This site is 100% QBasic,
the kind of site that can make you feel warm and happy inside.
Neozones Productions (http://neozones.quickbasic.com)
has just met some competition, in the form of Neozones (www.neozones.com)!
These two sites share the same name, but they're totally different. Neozones.com
focuses on Quickbasic and QB, and they're gradually getting members to
join their QB site-hosting service. Neozones Productions is still the premium
QB site though, with a new 100% profanity-free Discussion board and an
active QBoard where some of QB's most famous programmers answer some questions
like "What makes a good QBasic game?" or "What do you think of the QBRPG
Elf Productions (Quickbasic.com)
Quickbasic.com is going through some major
reconstruction, but even in it's refurnishing state the site is still very
much alive. Perhaps the most interesting feature is Chuck's new Search
engine for QB stuff, similar in nature to Future Software's QB Finder.
Last (though certainly not least), qb45.com
has given their site a new color scheme, with an orange and purple trim.
Also, Jorden recently added his new love and joy, the QB startpage. This
new startpage has a lot of big QB links compressed into one page.
