I am getting a modem that will work with the TeleVideo I have. It will allow it to hook up to the internet (I assume) and another computer. I will then take downloadable files from the PB computer and upload them to the TeleVideo and unzip them.

Until then, I don't have any access to the "outside computer world" with that comp. I haven't attempted to install the spare 5.25" floppy drive on the PB yet, so for now I'll just stick to what I have on the TeleVideo's hard drive for possible game making.

Now here's the question: can I make games using BASIC and the COPY CON command? If so, how do I do that? I have EDLIN too, but as we all know it's a real pain to use.

Please excuse my ignorance, but what's a TeleVideo? Some type of special computer?

Yes, COPY CON makes plain ASCII text files. When you're done, use BASIC to open and run them.

example:

C:\>COPY CON GAME.BAS
10 print "This game"
20 goto 10
(Press control Z when you're finished)

I made 5 of them myself, and the presence of Nibbles and Gorillas should make that point obvious to people anyway.
