Has anyone used B4J by the basic4android developer ?
I have been messing a bit with B4J.  Language is based off of Visual Basic. It has a GUI editor making layouts easy. Much of the code can be used with B4I and B4A.  Only problem is that you need Java installed to run.  There is an installer available on the site that allows someone to install a lversion of Java with the program that only runs with that program, so they don't need to install Java on their system if they don't want to, but it does make your program bigger.

Since B4J is completely free, I'd say it is worth checking out.

Project I am working on in B4J

Back OT one gotcha was Engined.dll is 16Mb and had to be included with your project to use 3d, back in the day it was a issue as limited bandwidth meant file sizes were large.

However as I'm now not pushing mobile targets anymore as to be honest it's to saturated now I'm looking at PB for development of my games.

Yes, I use PB.
I think it's one of the best modern Basic at all.

If you want to use PureBasic for web affairs, then Fred has done SpiderBasic (90% syntax with PB).

For mobile games/applications is probably the best AGK (based on the original DarkBasic).

The PB license is definitely worthwhile!  8)

I've tried PB for a while but am still mainly using QB64. Yep, PB is fast!

Out of curiosity I just checked out the pure basic site and I was wondering how it compares to AGK 2  tier one. Has anybody used both and can do a quick comparison.

You should talk to Blendman on the TGC forum. He uses both extensively.

PureBasic anyone?
« Reply #38 on: August 16, 2018, 07:04:28 PM »
Yes I have a license for Purebasic.
I found it cumbersome in a way and have used it little since I bought the license.

I have since used B3D, never Max, and found that Freebasic was more comfortable than purebasic.

I rate them by ease of use:

1:B3D
2:Freebasic
3:Darkbasic
4:Purebasic

Yes, I'm sure someone will write that Purebasic is way better than Darkbasic in functionality, yes it is.

*** Also, this thread was the first time that I had heard of AGK, whatever it does.
