DarkBASIC Classic

First released in 1999, DarkBASIC Classic (then known simply as DarkBASIC) was a commercial game programming language developed by Lee Bamber. It was The Game Creators' flagship product. It has since been superceded by Dark Basic Pro, which is now free software under the MIT license. DarkBASIC Classic remains closed-source and has been removed from The Game Creators website.

DarkBASIC Classic depends on Microsoft's Direct3D Retained Mode library and DirectPlay, both deprecated. Wine's DirectX support is currently incomplete, but with enough chi energy, running DarkBASIC with Wine is possible.
