DarkBASIC Programming is the first ever Wikibook on DarkBASIC!
You'll go from Hello World, to computing a text adventure, to making a simple first-person shooter (when the book is eventually finished).
Don't worry it's easy! The style is easy for beginners to DarkBASIC & programming.
Before I start, I'd like to thank The Game Creator's forum users for compliments, rants & comments on this book.
