Having been part of the Visual Basic gaming cimmunity for a long time (since 1997), I downloaded many tutorials/projects/articles related to Visual Basic gaming development. Although VB5-6 is rather outdated now, keeping these files online is a tiny effort and might be good for anyone ever in a nostalgic mood.

The files have all been checked thoroughly for viruses. I do not accept any responsibility for anything that might happen by running the applications and/or source code.

If you might have some old (VB gaming related) files which you'd like to share, please consider contacting me. Please read the readmes for any license information, if there is such a thing included.

You can find additional VB related downloads at the VBGamer file archive. Some files might be double on these sites, since Eric, the author of the site, has been just atleast just as long in the VB Gaming scene as I have smile. If you are interested in seeing what has been made with Visual Basic in the past, check out VBGamer's Big gamelist. It will show that VB, back in the day, was quite usable for games.

Enjoy 8-)! I hope the files might be of any use to you.
