Finally, DotBASIC Plus is ready for distribution! We have a web site where the manual and D81s can be downloaded for just $10. A CD-ROM and a color-printed manual are also available...


LOADSTAR is pleased to offer the ultimate software development package for the Commodore 64: DotBASIC Plus.  DB+ provides the means to create sophisticated, modern-looking programs in BASIC and is at the same time perfect for the programming novice.

Included with DotBASIC Plus is a 80-page reference guide.  The guide includes detailed DotCommand descriptions, as well as an extensive series of tutorials, screenshots, reference charts, and a complete index.

• Over 100 new DotCommands added to BASIC, including a powerful do loop, commands for stashing/restoring memory, playing SID music, and displaying custom character sets, sprites, and hi-res graphics.
• Programs written with DotBASIC Plus automatically support a mouse in port 1 and a joystick in port 2.
• Easily create windows, drop-down menus, even scrolling menus and text boxes.
• Easily extendable.  New DotCommands can easily be created and added to the DotBASIC library.  The manual includes a chapter on this.
• DB+ includes a suite of impressive design tools to help you create custom screens, sprites, and text files.

DotBASIC Plus is very affordable and can be purchased at


On the website, you can learn more about DB+, see screenshots, download sample DB+ programs, and read an excerpt from the manual.  A forum has also been created where DotBASIC users (and the merely curious) can ask questions, read tutorials, and download updates.

We all know that the C-64 is the ultimate hobbyist computer.  At LOADSTAR, we believe that DotBASIC Plus is the ultimate hobbyist computer language.  Join us at http://8bitcentral.com/dotbasic and make the power and sophistication of DotBASIC Plus your own.
