Hi I was wondering how you download and run FreeBasic. I would like to learn how to create games and I was told this was the place to go, but I cant figure out how to install the program...

You can get the compiler here:
https://downloads.sourceforge.net/fbc/F ... e?download

Then you can get one of the IDEs, FBIDE, here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/fbide/f ... e/download

When you install FBIDE, choose to install FBIDE only (because it comes bundled with an old version of the compiler).

When you run FBIDE, go to Menu>View>Settings>FreeBasic>Compiler Path and set it to wherever you installed the compiler, probably C:\Program Files\FreeBASIC\fbc.exe

EDIT: oh, looks like FBIDE comes with the latest version of the compiler after all. So you don't need to download it from Source Forge.
