Hello out there. I've been using QBasic to rewrite a program that I wrote back in mid-school and I wanted to improve it by introducing graphics. Well, Memory capacities of QBasic are somewhat limited and I KNOW there has to be a way around it. I'm making a graphics editor for myself to use to make the graphics for the game, and in it I need a large array (300X300) to store the colors in the picture and another array large enough to contain a picture that has those dimensions, which means I need to use expanded memory (uses > 64k). I'm using bload and bsave to save the pictures to different files. Anyway, I set up the shortcut to QBX to include the /aH command. This allows me to have the big arrays, but runs me into another problem--apparently QBasic does not like 'bload' -ing anything into an array in expanded memory. Is there a way that I can make an array and be sure that it is not in expanded memory when I declare it?
