I have put about 40 items and weapons in the game. There is alot here so check it out!!!!! Jonathan Valentin

RPG Tutorial - by Jim "Machaira" Perry
First in a series of tutorials that are designed to produce a Diablo type RPG. Zip file contains source code and tutorial document. Further tutorials will come as fast as my time allows me to produce them! Eventually a full isometric RPG will be created. This first tutorial is designed for those comfortable with VB classes, but is easy enough for a beginning VBer to understand I believe. Future tutorials will require some DirectX knowledge. Please e-mail me with things you'd like to see covered in future tutorials. This will not be an RPG with a huge number of features, but if enough people want to see something I'll do my best to include it.

Window Object Class and DirectDraw Implementation - by Jim Perry

Nullsoft InstallPimp - by Nullsoft, Inc.
 - [ author's homepage ]
This is the installation software used in later versions of the famous MP3 player, WinAMP. It has been released completely open-source and freeware, and it's a great piece of software for your own custom setup programs (ie: your game installation!).

Mapstuff module (ANCIENT!) - by David Goodlad
 - [ author's homepage ]
This absolutely ancient piece of code was written when I first started the Black Hole back in '95 or '96. It's just fun to look back at! :)

DirectX 3/5/6 Type Libraries - by Patrice Scribe
 - [ author's homepage ]
These tlb files allow you to access the old DirectX versions from Visual Basic. The file contains an updated DirectX 6 type library that should be used instead of the one in the main the also contains win32.tlb, which allows you to use Win32 API functions, constants, etc, without having to "Declare" them in VB first.
