; Hello World

I made a little progress with making a Framework in Fuze4Switch, but there are SO many more complications that have cropped up, including a return of the keyboard bug, a lack of filenames for saved files, and no Upper/Lower commands... no, seriously, you can't easily change a string to uppercase..

Bah, humbug..

Yesterday, I accidentally typed "fuze" into Windows, instead of "fire"(for Firefox) and was surprised by the fact that it actually popped up.
Fuze Basic v3.9.2

I'd completely forgotten that I installed it, almost a year ago, and ..


...yeah... :/

It's like a warning sign, really, isn't it..

The syntax is similar, but it's different in places, too.
And that actually troubles me quite a bit.

D'you remember in the early days, how different updates to DarkBasic would seemingly ALWAYS break something in your code? They kept changing the syntax and the command list, and it would always fuck up the code you'd written for the last version.
.. I have serious concerns that that's about to happen to Fuze, especially given some of the whinges and "we'll fix that" replies in their official forum.
It's looking rather dangerous!!!
I've been reassured, though, by @TheMikeDX that they'll be striving not to break compatibility..


I shall persevere...

The latest iterations with the usual insane pricetags attached.

; Possible Bug

Pakz notices that, under certain circumstances, the "Reply/Comment" button seems to vanish.
I've been testing this out on as many devices as I can find, but am yet to see it happen, myself.
If you can find the bug, and can figure out how to replicate it, send as much info as you can, so that I can attempt to solve the thing.

"Apple's Bankruptcy Collection" great title.

"D'you remember in the early days, how different updates to DarkBasic would seemingly ALWAYS break something in your code? "
Nowadays TGC luckily don't do such things with AGK classic or AGK Studio.

Absolutely, but by the time they'd stopped breaking every other version, I'd already moved over to Blitz, and vowed never to return.

I do hope that Fuze doesn't end up in the same situation..
