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.

Features:
• 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

http://8bitcentral.com/dotbasic

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.
