Simons' Basic EXTENSION available.

Post by CommodoreFan »

Everyone knows standard C64 basic V2. And most of you know Simons' Basic (SB) with 144 extra basic commands.
But only a few have heard of the SB Extension with another 91 basic commands and important bug fixes.

One little problem, it is on a tape. This meant long loading times and then it is not reset proof.
So i wanted to find a disk version but didn't succeed. Next step: crack the programm on tape.
In a joined effort we succeeded in doing so.

Now there is a .TAP file and a .D64 version. To use this SB Extension the SB cartridge MUST be installed.
Manuals can be downloaded from the DLH website.
SB manual (PDF)
SB Extension manual (PDF)
Send a mail to commodorefan?hccnet?nl (replace questionmarks) for the needed files and some extra info.

> Basic V2.0 + Simons' Basic + Extension = BASIC POWER !!!

Oh, I remember this, at least I think I used this. It allowed you to remove line numbers and create references to named points in your Basic program like

Information:
..
..
Goto Information

Also, it removed the all-caps commands, and made them look like I just wrote 'em, making it easier on the eye to program.

I gotta go back to nostalgia country. Will see if I can share some of my old knowledge here :)

Heh, this is a Commodore computer forum. However, the only place that I can think of for spare parts for your computer is Japan.

I guess you guys have the oldest of all programs. That means you should also be having the LOGO, the thing that we used to do in MS dos. I remember using it when I was I second grade or so.
