  • #2 ✎ 1692 12Me21 Syntax Highlighter Received for creating the code syntax highlighter on SBS Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. 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 ... GRPF:NAME DAT:NAMEall refer to another file (saved as "BNAME") Posted Edited by 12Me21
  • #3 ✎ 945 snail_ Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements OSP Contest 2 Contest Participant I participated in the second SmileBASIC Source OSP Contest!
