when it was nearly a 200 kb program. as soon as i tried to do that, i got an error message stating there wasnt enough memory available. so thats why i broke it down into smaller subs. but even when i was just using ONE program, most of the game was in the subs (look back at some of my earlier posts of the game) and yet the memory requirements were too large for compiling. in fact, all of the 4 mods besides the main mod were all included in subs.
i know you were not critcizing, only helping me out and all the help is appreciated. lol hell, i even learned a new QB term today (PDS). as for using command lines to compile larger programs, i think ill pass on it for a while lol. maybe i can use it when i restart the 2nd game i was working on, the quest game lol.
one question about subs though.....the more variables you pass through CALL statements will increase your memory requirements in the subs, right?
