I downloaded FreeBASIC... there is no editor or any mention of an editor in any of the documentation......not even a basic QuickBasic editor. How are you supposed to write programs in the bloody thing?

How did I miss this? Less than 3 weeks before round 2 closes. Looks like my 8-bit comp entry is going to be a series :)

FreeBASIC seems close enough to QB64. I think I need around 20 hours, 20 beers and 2 liters of energy drink to have a working game with first level working  ;D. Just need to figure out a way to make it interesting and fun to play without being too big and ambitious. hmmm... need to think about this.
