This program “suite” was made entirely in QBasic 1.1. It contains five programs total.
256BLOCK lets you browse the default VGA palette (which is also the default palette of QBASIC). It is especially useful for QBASIC programmers or people who like to look at shiny colors.
JakDraw lets you draw and save images in DOS in BAS format.
Tech notes: The format for saved images is BAS. File extensions are BA1, BA2, BA3, BA4 to overcome limits of QBasic 1.1.
JakSound lets you create and save sounds (pc speaker tones) by changing pitch bars and speed with the mouse. :edit 2007/08/09: you can even choose a scale and mode and the ‘#’ symbol will show you which notes are out of tune! :edit 2007-10-05: This is a work in progress, so snapping based on modes and keys is not pitch-perfect.
Spheroid in this game you are a minesweeper in a protective sphere. You have to get close enough to the mines to press enter and destroy them–the catch is, you cannot stop moving because the sphere does not have brakes.
SuperMegaBreak has a separate icon not on the QJak Menu. SuperMegaBreak is a breakout clone with a mock-3D paddle. Hopefully you’ll be fast enough!
