DO NOT REPLACE YOUR CURRENT QB64 FOLDER WITH THIS
http://www.qb64.net/qb64_gl_b.7z (~40MB)
http://www.qb64.net/qb64_gl_2.zip (~90MB)[same as above]

GL_readme.txt
Code: [Select]
IMPORTANT NOTES:
Don't try to 'update' this version of QB64
Don't use sound
Only use _LOADIMAGE on .PNG or .JPG 32-bit
Don't use joysticks
Can't use unicode input
Can't use relative mouse movement
Can't use $CONSOLE

Why does it take so long to run my programs?
Compile time is very slow because all libraries are being included and some are being compiled from source.
Compile time of QB64-GL, once complete, will be faster than SDL-based QB64

What can this version of QB64-GL do that the previous version didn't?
-Loading & using .TTF fonts
-TCP/IP communication
-QB64 GL based IDE too (no more DLLs!)
-Window resizes to match your program's SCREEN correctly
-CTRL+BREAK & BREAK
-_EXIT command
-Previous version used some unsafe hacks to display screen data, this version fixes that
-Handle alt, ctrl & shift keys
