I need to know how much time do you think it would take the average programming student to replocate the super mario 1 game in VB 6.0. I want to do the ganme for my year end project but i'm not sure how much time it wuil take me to do. I type at 41 wpm but logic wise I type at about 20 wpm so can some help gage if this is a doable project

I used to love VB for quick mock-up application designs. The same reasons why i used access. I found with access it was much easier to visually design a database (not a very complex one mind you), and then use that to create it on a real database server weather it be mysql, mssql, etc.

So, i wouldn't say VB is that evil, it's nice if you want to do something simple in windows. I use to create vb apps to access an access database on a server to fetch and store information. Quite useful, and quite quick to create, and even handled over 300 simultaneous users at one time! I was quite surprised with it's performance.
