Why did you choose QuickBasic over other languages to make the OHRRPGCE?
James and Brian Fisher had previously programmed several games using QuickBasic and an assembly-language library that Brian wrote called allmodex.
The decision to write the OHRRPGCE the way it was written was entirely based on the tools that James had available at the time.
The OHRRPGCE is no longer developed in QuickBasic. It has been ported to FreeBasic.
