Express Yourself There's also PRG: which is equivalent to PRG0:. Note that there are actually only 2 file types, and all these names are just for telling SB how to load the file. All of these: PRG:NAME PRG0:NAME PRG1:NAME PRG2:NAME PRG3:NAME TXT:NAMErefer to the same file (Internally, this is saved as "TNAME"), and GRP0:NAME GRP1:NAME ...

  • #3 ✎ 998 snail_ QSP Contest 1 Contest Participant I participated in the first SmileBASIC Source QSP Contest! Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Amazing Contributor Someone thinks I'm an awesome person who has done so much for the community!
