Yeh, i know how you feel.
I was pretty excited about DB Pro too.
Having been a Dark Basic Classic coder for several years, i was getting pretty frustrated with it's limitations and DB Pro promised so much.
But when it finaly arrived and it was obviously bugged and fell far short of what i was expecting i eventually jumped ship to Blitz Basic.
Which is what i should have done in the first place.
Just a pity i found the inferior Dark Basic before Blitz.
Incidentally I downloaded and tried GLBasic as that also does a similar thing. It looks quite promising as things like shaders are integrated too, but I game up when the first few demos I tried all failed to compile. Although I think it's just because the language is still being updated and they are old demos, it's enough to make me look elsewhere.
I've read several posts on the Blitz forum from people who praise GL Basic.
But i havn't tried it myself.
It's really unforgivable to have a product that won't compile code.
Even if the language is being upgraded or not, the demo should work regardless. Or else it shouldn't be available for download.
There are so many languages available now that it needs to work flawlessly to make a sale.
