Yeah, in fact VB Homebrew development seems to be "stoped" in general...

Same here... I wish someone would make something new ;-). I just bought a house and am still getting moved in... I was working on a kinda cool project (more hardware related though), but it's sorta stalled because I don't have all my dev stuff unpacked and my workbench set up yet.

that nothing new got released for a while does not mean that nothing is being worked on. i, for my part, am currently finishing blox 2, and also have been working on a ray caster as well as a yet to be announced game. probably other people are silently working on stuff as well.

look for a c tutorial and start leaning, it's never too late. ;)

Not either of those... this is something new I started on a few weeks ago... it really shouldn't take too long to do if I can just get some time to do it (and my equipment set up to work on it). I'll post some details once I get a proof of concept going.

Or a Red Alarm level editor, that would be even better!

I've always wanted to program on the VB, but I still need more experience in programming in general before I can do anything about it. Personally, I would love to see a 2-player linked mode on any of the released games, especially Space Squash or Teleroboxer. Now that would be awesome!

I wish I could program something for the VB, but I fear i'm too stupid to understand how a code works. If only there was a tutorial, or BASIC program (like for the Atari 2600), or SOMETHING to "dumb it down" for me. Like what do I need to have on my computer? What programming language do I need to learn? Something to that effect.

You really just need to know C... but I wouldn't say C is the best language to learn programming with. You should have at least an understanding of how programming works, which a simpler language on a PC might help you understand (BASIC, Visual Basic, even some web stuff like Javascript). Once you learn the loose languages, then you can jump into some of the stricter languages like C. But until you understand programming, there's really no need to get your computer set up (unless you just want to play around). If so, check out: http://www.vr32.de/modules/tech/index.php?sec=utils ... basically you need gccvb, VIDE, and Reality Boy.

You could also pick a niche that you are good at, like creating graphics, sounds/music, or even game/level design... which, if you restrict yourself to limitations that the VB has, would be very useful for those that do program (basically don't make fully 3D rendered scenes with 16.7 million colors... we have 4 shades of red, counting black).

I know Batari BASIC, which is used to create Atari 2600/VCS games. I've gotten quite a few published. You can check pictures out here. I've just finished making a VCS version of the arcade game Stacker. Basically, that's all I know. I've dabbled with the BASIC programming on the Oric emulator, too, if that's worth anything. So what do I do, just go to the library and pick out a book on C programming? Basically, what I want to do is make a Virtual Boy program. First start out with moving an object on the screen with the directional pad, and then work from there.
