simplicity of BASIC and the graphic power of DirectX ; it's perfect
for whoever wants to create games or other 3D applications without
having to fight his way through the complexity of C++.
are some code snippets which proved to be useful in my past coder
life (right-click, "save target as..."):
Matrix: Create "matrix-like-objects" that can
be manipulated as other objects (rotations, textures, etc.).
Includes functions to load/save heightmaps, smooth geometry,

A little game with which I won the "20-liner" challenge

Not the best (far from it!), but it can help...
