Amazon.com Review

Easier to comprehend than some other game-programming packages out there, DarkBASIC offers both a fun tutorial and a powerful code editor. You can start programming right away in this offshoot of the BASIC language. First you will learn about the principles of programming, then advance onto media and 3-D topics with further study. The program makes it easy, and with a handful of impressive examples you can learn by doing on several short, fast programs.

The main editor area of the program is attractive, although it does remind us a bit of the role-playing games of the late 1980s. Our favorite perk was the Command Line Interface (CLI) button in the page header: this feature allows you to test single or small groups of commands without constructing an entire program. The online help system is multifaceted: it offers a "fast track" option for those with programming experience (or who are just impatient) as well as a more structured lesson plan.

The user manual is particularly friendly and witty in tone, and we appreciated the Further Tutorials pamphlet that accompanied the package. The initial tutorials cover basic program form, creating line objects, using color, and terraforming. The advanced tutorials examine everything from determining camera perspective to the use of fogs and backdrops, from explosions to bullets and monsters.

We first took DarkBASIC out for a spin with a simple text program, and then moved on to creating a simple 3-D game (unfortunately without conclusion). The package comes with a number of textures for floor, wall, and ceiling, as well as other objects like monsters, weapons, and the like. You're not limited to using only these: DarkBASIC covers how to import your own images and assets for use in your program. This package handles five types of media files: images (as bitmap files), sound (as WAV files), music (as MIDI files), animation (as AVI files), and object models. For each of these, you may specify the correct editor, ensuring a strong connection and compatibility between DarkBASIC and your selected applications.

We were very impressed with the media browser and accompanying contents: in this gallery-style view, you can check out the goblins, samurais, game sounds, streaming music, textures, and game screens (like the "game over" screen). Our only issue with DarkBASIC was that there wasn't a minimize option readily available, making it difficult to multitask with other projects we're working on (yet easy to get engrossed in our dreams of 3-D game generation).

Overall, DarkBASIC ran very smoothly after install and left plenty of resources free for other applications to continue running. In the end, we recommend DarkBASIC to future (and present) game-programming gurus for ease of use, quality, and the overall fun factor. --Emilie Herbst ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Good concept, but Darkbasic pro is a better choice
I own both this and darkbasic pro,

I would like to say that they are both great products, but not for those with no programing mentality. Writting a game requires good understanding in maths and generaly thinking in a clear logical way. So it is not as easy as it says on the packaging. The tutorial on the manual is very good, and will get you started writting first person shooter games in no time. Otherwise, the manual is very poor when it comes to describing what the commands do. Only the syntax is explained properly. The actual function of the commands is not very clear unless you already know what you are doing, or the command is a very basic one.

This programing language needs a good book to accompany it before it gains any value.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dude that uses DrakBASIC
DarkBASIC is a great product. I use it as my primary language for the game I am creating. I find it to be an increadably easy to use language. The code is simple, it comes with a manual that explains everything, and some tutorials that explain it further. I find these things really helpful. It has a great interface and uses DirectX to its full extent. It includes sample games that show you how to do certain things, models and art for game creation, and its own editor/compiler. On thier website, they tell news, downlads for other games, support, additional artowrk and examples, links, and other things. A great recommendation, if you use DarkBASIC, is downloading a windows editor that is if not as much, easier to use than the one supplied by Enteractive. Also, due to DarkBASIC being written in C++, it can go as fast, or sometimes even faster, than C++. If you want to make a game, but don't want to spend a lot of time learning C++ and the money for a comiler, DarkBASIC should definently be your choice.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good if you want to work hard
This program is good if you want to mold the matrix bit by bit. But if you want to make games in a snap, spring for the professional and get a level editor on a DarkBASIC website.

5-0 out of 5 stars darkbasic by legolas
If you can't do much else in darkbasic try this sample program:
type this in:
DO
PRINT "WHAT HATH GOD WROUGHT"
LOOP
now you got a crazy program that has that for lines down--- IT'S YOUR FIRST PROGRAM! and the first thing on the telegram, I think. (...)

2-0 out of 5 stars Good idea, but bad design
I got this as a present about two years ago, and I have had mixed feelings. I like it, but I get really frustrated because the program is buggy. I cannot create a standalone executable, and the program has random bugs. Also, it is very hard to create proffesional-type games. Be aware that the machine you run standalone programs on has to have a video card, regardless of whether you use it or not. In conclusion, good idea, but very buggy. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars All the business software you'll ever need!
As a daily user of FileMaker Pro, this latest upgrade provides the best FM Pro yet!

First, FileMaker Pro is not one product, but multiple. For example, you can use it as your customer contact manager, purchase order/invoice system, accounts payable, business card manager, etc. It can become all of the software solutions you need. What may cost you thousands of dollars to purchase individually is all capable within FileMaker. And the best part is you can customize it to YOUR liking.

FM Pro 7 gives even more options. One of the best features is the ability to store or link to other documents like pdf (Adobe Acrobat), word, excel, etc. Just imagine pulling up your client and having instant access to invoices, documentation, etc. right at your fingertips.

This is all the software you'll ever need and with a superb team that built FileMaker you'll be pleased (they are also a part of Apple so you know it's quality!) ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars the standard
for building C++ programs in Windows, this is the best route for fast program development in a visual IDE.

1-0 out of 5 stars A tragically flawed alternative to Microsoft Visual Studio
The idea was great.

Instead of doing RAD in VB, do RAD using C++ !!

Unfortunately, the execution is deeply flawed.

Based on Borlands Pascal / Delphi product, it uses many of the Pascal components that ship with Delphi.

It therefore suffers from irritating Pascalisms.

Add to this an unstable and buggy IDE
( just read the complaints
on Borlands own c++builder forums ) and a product that is hamstrung by a small and poorly funded development team,
and you have a tragically and deeply flawed implementation of an
alternative to VB.

To make matters worse, Borland have effectively increased the
price. Many features have been shifted into the Enterprise edition.

Borland seem to have effectively abandoned this product in favour
of Delphi ( cash cow ) and JBuilder ( a strong contender in the Java RAD field )

Try this if you like.
( Borland have a download able trial somehere on their vast and
poorly organised site )

Then weep for what might have been and move on to Visual Studio .NET

4-0 out of 5 stars What they don't tell you...
Some of these "Tips" you may already know but if you don't they can save you a lot of time and aggravation. 1) Each new quartile, the set of CD(s) or DVD(s) do not necessary retain all of the old content from the previous version. Save your old media if you don't think there this is any possible chance you will need them in the future. Also the content is constantly being reorganized and an older version might present the information in a manner that is easier for you to use and more importantly FIND. 2) The new installation will NOT automatically save your favorites. To do this you must go the Windows Desktop Start -> Programs -> Microsoft Developer Network -> MSDN Library Favorites Utility . Use that utility to import your favorites into the new version. 3) If at all possible, (free disk space) choose the "Full" installation option or your search for information will result in constant prompts to insert your media again and again. Not productive at all. 4) and finally, the information is super accurate but at times very terse and formal. You are much better off searching the various Web sites for examples of the technologies, especially programming.

Amazon.com Review

Structured Query Language (SQL), the standard means of specifying what information you want to extract from a relational database, was designed by programmers for programmers. In order to extract values from tables with straight SQL, you have to formulate convoluted statements from field names and cryptic keywords--which doesn't usually leave time available for making business decisions. The makers of Crystal Reports 8.5 Developer Edition understand that writing SQL statements isn't everyone's favorite thing to do, so Crystal Reports 8.5 Developer Edition provides tools that make it easier to extract meaningful information--in the form of charts, tables, and calculated values--from the contents of database management systems like Oracle, Sybase, and Microsoft SQL Server. The developers of Crystal Reports also knew that some people love to manipulate data at a low level with SQL and other programmers' tools, so the package contains goodies for them, as well.

As is often the case with enterprise solutions, this product consists of two separate applications. The core package, Crystal Reports 8.5 Developer, is for accessing the contents of database tables and generating reports based on their contents. Wizards make this process extremely easy. You just specify the database you want to operate on, which can be local or accessible via an Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) link. Having done that, you can choose the tables and fields you want to extract values from. The wizards make it easy to specify which fields should serve as headers, and simplify the process of doing calculations on extracted values. In a report on the monthly sales of a multinational chain of stores, for example, you could group individual stores' sales figures by country, and calculate total sales figures for each country and for the chain as a whole. Wizards also handle formatting, so it's pretty easy to get neat-looking reports customized with your organizational logo. Wizards aren't limited to tabular reports: you can use them to generate reports that reveal details in response to clicks (so-called drill-down reports) and personalized form letters for mass mailings.

Going beyond the wizards, Crystal Reports 8.5 Developer offers a tool for visually creating joins among tables (by which you can consolidate the fields in multiple tables into a single report). It also makes it relatively easy to build SQL queries, mostly by exchanging syntax memorization in favor of a logically organized set of expandable trees from which you choose the commands you want. With SQL queries, you can do things like find the maximum value in a field across many records, or perform complicated text-searches on the contents of text fields. Managers and others who have been taught to revere database queries as a black art known only to database administrators will be delighted by the ease with which they can create reports to support their business decisions.

The other product in this package is Crystal Enterprise 8, which is capable of taking report documents from Crystal Reports and distilling them into publications that it then serves to network users. There are several ways to go about preparing reports for network publication, the simplest being nearly automatic conversion of Crystal Reports documents into Dynamic HTML (DHTML) files that standard Web browsers can read. With a little more work, Crystal Enterprise will serve reports in streaming form--meaning they're updated dynamically as their underlying data changes. It'll also generate Adobe Acrobat (PDF) files, as well as reports delimited by Extensible Markup Language (XML) tags. The XML feature is especially cool, because it means you can use Crystal Enterprise as an engine for generating business documents (such as invoices and purchase orders) that are fed to business partners via an XML-based information-exchange system, such as Microsoft BizTalk Server.

Because it's easy to use and flexible in its output, Crystal Reports 8.5 Developer Edition belongs in the toolkit of anyone who's responsible for sharing complicated information--especially numerical information--with others via a network. --David Wall ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as shareware
As indicated in other reviews, this product is horribly buggy. Its only consistency is that it is creatively inconsistent. A rating of 1 is too high.

It's unfortunate that there is no similar competitive product available. Otherwise, this product would be yesterday's toast.

Your report info is stored in a binary file. It's a nightmare in there. Plus, unexpected and inexplicable random corruption of the binary destroys a great deal of work. Back up often.

1-0 out of 5 stars Programmer's Nightmare
I don't have the space to convey just how much production time is continually being lost to this abysmally bad product in our shop of senior developers. I could go on for days. Try a little experiment before buying it: go to the CrystalDecisions website and look at some of the most common errors reported. Basic stuff like INSTALLING the product, getting it ready to package up with an install application, pointing it to a DB through just about any connection technology. And it's all downhill from there. I still don't get why there isn't a better product out there yet.

1-0 out of 5 stars Programmers beware.
The program is full of holes and traps for the programmer. The new method of including the report in VB programs uses a lot of overhead and slows a VB program down if the number of reports is more then 4 or 5. Some necessary dependacy files are not included and it will not easly load onto computers not using the internet (a great many business computers). Crystal Software includes a 60 days support package that is not at all enough. Just visit the Crystal developer web site to view some of the problems. Save your money and use your older versions until they get it right.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great But. . . .
Its great but you have to have the Crystal Reports Design Class I, II, -> V books to help you through it. Without these it is very time consuming and the only way to get these books is to attend the classes. They are not available for sale. As I just found out :-( (They do not come with this package as I had thought) 10-12-2001

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice for reporting, but has some really annoying bugs
Crystal Reports 8.5 provides a lot of features for designing reports on top of a relational database system and as far as consumer-tier goes, it's a fine product. Charts are pretty easy to use, the macro language is fairly powerful (and intuitive), and it's very easy to lay out items on the report.

There are several annoying problems with it:
1. During upgrade from a previous version, the installer removed the previous version, then complained it couldn't find a certain file needed to "prove" this was an upgrade. After reinstalling the previous version and repeating the process a couple of times, I found a workaround on the Seagate web site. Ugh... this shouldn't happen.

2. The table linker is nice, but it is more primative than the one in Microsoft Access. For example, if I'm joining three fields from table "foo" to table "bar," and I make one of those joins a "right join" then the others two parts of the table join should default to this. They don't and it errors out. I feel the tool could be easier to use.

3. On several occasios the query tool got hopelessly confused. It was often easier to write a custom view or macro query on SQL Server (or Oracle) than it was to use the reporting front end. The problem I have with this is it makes my particular installation harder to do because in addition to just shipping a standalone report, I have to ship a SQL query. I wish there were a way for me to reliably tell it "I KNOW what I'm doing... ust send the query as I've typed it to the database."

4. Occasionally when a query had problems with it and I attempted to preview the report, it would go into "infinite loop" mode. The only way out of this was to use Windows to "kill" the program. Quite frequently, I'd have crw32.exe just crash on its own when accessing a SQL database. ... Read more

When J# came out 2 years ago, I thought it would be a hit. But, how can you expect that to happen when Microsoft is pushing C# and VB and completely ignoring J#. I mean you go to conferences and people say, "yeah, J# is useful but don't take it seriously." Then, you search for a good book on J# and there are only 3 books ever written for J#. Besides, a lot of C# and VB features are not available with J#. All in all, too expensive for a product that you won't be using. Just stick with Java if you are really that desparate. J# is not platform independent and not as powerful as Sun's Java.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's simple the most powerful software subscription on earth
Are you a serious professional developer that creates software for multiple windows versions or international languages, like me?

Almost 3 years ago, my company bought this subscription for me, and I have to tell you it has helped me to solve so many, many troubles I encounter as a programmer. Like the day some users reported our application was failing when running on a Windows XP Pro + Office XP both in Simplified Chinese... Try to solve that without MSDNU!!

Need to install the latest SQL Server version, or use .NET Architect, or Windows 2003?? Almost *every* software Microsoft sells is now yours, no kidding... It's absolutely unbelievable they sell MSDN Universal at almost the same price of Visual Studio .NET. Buy MSDNU instead, believe me!

I'm always surprised when they add new software (like Virtual PC, Great Plains, Visio, or 64-bits versions of Windows), but it's sad when they stop sending old software (Office 2000, etc). Some of them are still available on subscriber downloads online (like the old MS-DOS 5.0, Windows 3.1 or NT).

Now, I have to tell you: each year you need to pay the renewal fee. It's no joke. But I can't imagine working without this subscription for an entire year.

Also, there are just too many CDs...Buy the DVD version! You'll need to burn a bunch of ISO images for some of the operating systems, but that's just when you need to use them on a PC with no DVD. Some DVDs are bootable, and present a menu for you to select the proper Windows installation.

I *really* like that I can download a special product from the subscriber downloads online website, even before it's released to stores. It's very useful when you bought just the English subscription and now you need to install a Portuguese version of Microsoft Office, for example. Today I'll download the latest Longhorn Community Preview. Yahoo! This makes my programming job so fun.

You can switch to a different language pack during the year, with no problem; or order extra CDs. It's like having Microsoft at your feet..!

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Product, Poor Purchase Experience
I had the same problem as one of the other reviewers, my activation number was already in use, so I had to talk to Microsoft and send it out by a carrier (Top of the box, invoice & subscription card). When they received it, they called me at my office and noticed that I wasnt on the U.S. Even though I was going to receive MSDN in Texas, they told me that if I was to use this product in México I would be violating the license agreement. They didnt even told if there was a similar product for foreign countries... So now, my Subscription belongs to another person in Texas. Bu.

3-0 out of 5 stars "Activation code already being used"
MSDN is probably essential if you develop software for Windows, but I had a problem activating my subscription online. The activation page says my subscription number is currently being used. Be prepared to mail in your activation request (no fax, no web), sending in the activation card, the top of the box, and invoice. After paying over two grand, I still need to wait up to 10 days to start using my subscription. Looks like there is a security problem with the activation numbers. For the cost of the subscription, it should be quicker to activate, notwithstanding the securty issue. After all, Microsoft seems to be letting someone else use my subscription for free--why not me too?

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential tool for any Microsoft developer
If you develop software for Microsoft platform, you can't live without it.

On this package you will get everything, form Windows to Visual Studio, passing by all the servers and productivity applications from Microsoft that are relevant to our work.

Also, with this package you can get things before they hit the shelves. I got Visual Studio .NET 2002 one month before its launch, Windows Server 2003 almost one month too and Visual Studio .NET 2003 more than two weeks before it.

You receive tons of documentation, SDK, samples and help material...

A must have.

5-0 out of 5 stars MSDN's Universal Level Subscription
This is a good product to stay current with Microsoft releases and their developer tools such as Visual Interdev which is now Visual Studio .NET. MSDN Universal level subscription contains all of Microsoft's Operating Systems and programming languages, e.g., Visual Studio .NET, C# (pronouned C Sharp), etc. What others have neglected to point out is that it is now a subscription from Microsoft that runs for one year with monthly updates on either CD-ROM or DVD's. It is more manageable on DVD than CD. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars CODE WARRIOR PROFESSIONAL IS WONDERFUL!!
CodeWarrior for Mac OS, Professional Edition, Release 5 introduces RAD tools for Java including wizards (helpers) for Java applet, application and bean development. The Java RAD is great because it has a graphical layout editor that builds Java program's with a user interface (GUI) using fast, click-and-drop technology.
Release 5 of the Professional editions can be used for Mac OS and CodeWarrior for Windows bundle KL Group's JClass Java Lite components with CodeWarrior. KL Group's JavaBeans added to CodeWarrior gives me versatile tools that enhance the look and functionality of my interfaces, and provides the only truly integrated development tool suite for multiple language and multiple platform development.
WONDERFUL+++++++++++++++

5-0 out of 5 stars do not pass go, do not collect other tools
If you're developing for Macintosh, don't be distracted by comparisons to other Windows compilers. This is the one to get. Command line? Forget it. Slow? It blazes. Cherished by 90+% of professional shrink-wrap developers. Accept no substitutes.

4-0 out of 5 stars The only good one
It's solid, fully supported, and updated. At least it's more finder friendly than MPW. Slow but worthwhile. Worth getting.

1-0 out of 5 stars Well, at least the name sounds good
My experience with codewarrior hasn't been good at all, to say the least. Their so-called standard C++ Refrence Lib has bugs that cripple any programs I've tried to write using it, and their plentiful on-CD documentation could offer no assistance or guidance. If you're in the market for a compiler, my personal advice is to go with Borland, if you don't want your life and production pipeline needlessly complicated. However, I cannot speak for any other languages it supports. ... Read more
