hi everyone,

I'm looking for DOS games made on FreeBasic, specially having sources available.

Since i'm interested on coding DOS games (on DosBox and/or FreeDOS), for the first goal of retro development for old machines, and since i'm struggling on some specific issues (sprites, subs and functions, soundblaster handling (at least as "easy" as on sound processors like AY, Konami-SCC, C64-SID, etc.), custom screen modes, etc. ), all information about them are very welcome!

Thanks! Happy

As Freebasic is open source you can find an unlimited amount of info on the internet about those subjects you mention.

If you really want to learn how to handle those specific issues you asking about, you will need to take your time and learn bit by bit how to solve them problems.

Don't expect some fast or easy road trip. It takes years to learn those things, and even then you'll know you've only scratched the surface.

My advise, if you really meant you want to learn freebasic programming:
Join them freebasic fora, become an active member there.
BTW, you will learn as much from helping others (absolute beginners?) as from the more seasoned members.
