I did that 3 years ago. I’m not sharing that program with you, even though it worked and could change the world…or possibly destroy it, if used incorrectly.
Instead I’m going to share screenshots I took of the SmileBASIC tutorial. I can’t find the tutorial online at the moment. I do not know if it’s been deleted. It’s probably out there somewhere and I’m just missing a real obvious link on the SmileBASIC website.
If you do happen to find this tutorial please do not link it in this thread yet. Please wait until I finish posting all my screenshots. There are 13 of them in this directory. I hope they teach us all a thing or two about development.
It is true. Everyone is a beginner at the beginning.
And yes, it is true: my favorite image, the universally beloved study.png, was taken from this tutorial.
There it is in case you would like it for your own personal use. If you go and post this to Twitter and it goes “viral” and you do not credit me, the guy who stole it first, I will track you down and I will be nice to you until you admit you wronged me. Don’t make me do that! I hate doing that! And I keep having to do it!
I thought this tutorial was brilliant and innovative and very funny but I dicked around with Wario Ware DIY not too long ago and saw its tutorial uses the same exact format. So I guess SmileBoom ripped it off but they did a better job and that’s better than being the originator. Unless the person getting ripped off is me – please do not steal my original stolen content and try and one-up me by coming up with funnier jokes. You’ll only embarrass yourself.
Tomorrow’s lesson: some more wisdom from the angry boy who hates to learn.
